I met someone. A really important someone. You guys, I met my person. My person. And in less than a year we went from meeting to dating to buying a house together. I'm gonna marry him. And - get this - take his last name. *Gasp*
But, falling in love is not the subject of this post. You see, this is my final post. I started this blog as a way to pass time and hold adult conversation (even if one-sided) while raising my 3 children. I gave you a glimpse into the frightening, but funny, mind of a survival mom. I was just trying to get by and, for years, you helped me. But, I am no longer a survival mom. I am thriving and this blog has come to close.
I left my ex-husband over 3 years ago and moved to a tiny apartment in a neighboring town. I was so scared. I had never been on my own. I went from my father's house to a dorm room to Jack's house. But, Jack was drunk 24/7. Things were so bad we couldn't stay at Jack's house any longer. I couldn't allow our children to live like that.
|It wasn't a palace, but it was home. I finally grew up here.|
|The closet over the stairs was the dragons' favorite hangout.|
The kids and I were sad and broken when we moved to the tiny apartment. It didn't take long for my little dragons to bounce back and have a new normal. But I was mess for quite some time. I was very much a child when I moved to the apartment.
And you know what happened? I grew up there. I learned to live on my own. I learned to rely on only me. I learned that I had the stuff to raise 3 kids, pay all the bills, provide experiences, and even find happiness. And that's where I am today. A fully capable, intelligent, passionate, (dare I say sexy?) fully-grown woman.
So, this is goodbye to Mind of A Survival Mom. I'm moving on to other projects. Bigger, better things. I'm no longer missing what this blog helped provide.
I have everything. And I'm Not Broken Anymore.
