wow, it's been over a month since I've logged in, and I am thrilled to see so many mommas doing so well
I'm Robin, in los Angeles, turning 37 next month
. I've got 2 boys, who will be 8 & 4 in a couple of weeks. About a year ago, my DH of 8 years decided he didn't want to have another baby (which we'd been planning for) and when I freaked out about that, he decided that he didn't want me anymore, either. We did an in-house separation for a few months and he moved out, into the house next door, in July. It's weird living next door to my ex but it's been wonderful for the kids. The boys are with him about 40% of the time, alternating nights during the week and being with him most of the weekend. I get them for the boring times
but I usually need to work on the weekends anyway, so it's better for them to be with Daddy at those times. We've been fairly amicable mostly by keeping it simple and business-like. Oh, yeah, we still haven't filed for divorce, but will next month and I've gotten regular CS from him every paycheck so I am very blessed with that.
It's been a really horrible year and a half but my life is finally starting to go in a good direction. I recently started a WAH job sewing designer handbags. I haven't gotten to a good place with money yet but I get a large part of Ex's bonus next month which I hope will be the end of my money probs.
