Feeling better for now




Well, I think I'm feeling better for now. I'm already worried about the holidays and a little depressed about them if I'm honest.


I'm just so ready to be done with this so I can move on with my life - but I can't change what it is and I can and should use this time to improve my situation as best I can and prepare for what I'm going to do as soon as the divorce is final.


First this is first - go out to dinner with some friends to celebrate the new chapter of my life.


Then I'd like to buy a small house - just for me and Levi with a hot tub in the back yard. I'd like to pay for it mostly in cash. I want a nice neighborhood, but I don't mind if the schools are big city - one year from today, that will be me.


So I don't know if I should talk about this - but I've been working on not drinking at all. I've had moderate success with this, I'm down to only having a few beers one night a week, but I've come to the point where I know that even two beers will interrupt my sleep, and face it - alcohol is a depressant, and I certainly don't need more of that in my life right now. So I'm done with the stuff - at least until my divorce is final.


Work is going well and Levi is doing great. It's so nice to have him. On the weekends I let him sleep in the bed with me, weekdays he's in his crate next to my bed. He's been great as far as potty training - he has not had an accident in months - so that's wonderful!


I won't think about the holidays yet. Just because this year is going to be different does not mean it is going to be bad.

Do any of your friends have an open door policy for at least Thanksgiving? My friends do that - they live far enough away from family, and she's an awesome cook, so they let any of their friends (or sometimes friends of friends) come over if they want.

Sounds like you are doing well - how is Levi doing?  Is there a homeless shelter or group serving Thanksgiving dinner where you can volunteer?
