So much has happened that I do not know where to start. The kids are sleeping at the moment, so I may have to leave this blog suddenly if they wake up.
I rented a house out in the country. It's barely cosidered country, as it's just 15 minutes out of town, but it feels like the country. We are close to a river, many hiking trails, forest preserves, and only two neighbors within sight. There are close to 20 miles of trails, rivers, and equestrian trails literally outside of my driveway. Wildflowers everywhere, dragon flies, and yes - even mosquitos.
My soon to be ex-husband is in a lot of pain, and he is still making decisions based on his hurt, versus what's good for the kids. But he is slowly starting to calm down and talk to me. He has decreased his work hours in order to spend time with the kids (amazing- in the past he claimed he didn't have the freedom to do that.) More importantly, we are starting to cooperate. More later.
