This place used to be my safe haven. I can't believe I haven't been here in 3 years. So much has happened since I was last here. Hmmm where did I leave off...
Well let me start from late 2011 to now....
September 2011 I got married. It was what I thought I wanted at the time. I married someone I had sated back in my 20s. I was 41 at the time and it was my first marriage.
October 2011, My mom passed away...35 days after I got married. :( My heart broke. Earlier that year in May, we found out she had pancreatic cancer. I tried to remain optimistic but after every chemo session she got sicker and sicker. I fell into a deep depression.
February 2012, I found out my husband was cheating. Actually I knew before then but I confirmed it with pictures and other proof in February. I was devastated. When I confronted him, he left. Yep just rolled out. He would come by when I was at work but for the most part he dipped. I was still grieving the loss of my mother and I poured my grief into a stage play that was well received in Atlanta. The play debuted June 2nd, 2012. You know there are certain events that happen that are frozen in time in your mind. I have 2 such events: The day my mom died and the day he came back like he hadn't been missing for 4 months. Right....
Yep so I came home from rehearsal and he was in the bed like he had been coming home everyday for the past 4 months. I tried to make it work. I really did. But see once I say I am done, I am done. I spent the rest of February and March grieving the relationship. I was over it by the time he came back but I spent the next year and a half pretending. In September 2013, I began looking for another job...in another state. Yep I was leaving Georgia...and him. I got an offer in January and began my new job in February 2014 in DC. I got all of my stuff May 2014 and settled into the DC metro. I filed for divorce and have begun a new chapter in my life. I love being in the DMV.
So what have you all been up to?
I missed y'all.
