Well, in spite of some of the good things that did exist in our relationship, I'm finally landing here. I've spent several years trying to think I can make a way for us to be in two totally opposite religions in the same household, and it's just, well I can't live like that anymore. (He converted to JW a few years ago, I'm a UU-Pagan). There have been too many deal breakers happening, too many times I've given second chances, and quite frankly I'm tired of the constant refrain of the end of the world being near. So here I am, I'm living at my mom's house, and we're sharing custody of DD 50/50. Obviously our lives are pretty screwed up right now, and that's how it's going to be for a while.
I'm also dealing with the knowledge that I probably won't see my stepkids very much, if at all for a while and/or indefinitely. That part is going to be extremely difficult. Anyone who has any tips on getting through being an ex-stepmom, I'd appreciate them.
