Hi everyone! I have almost nothing to say, I'm just not ready to drop off the back of the thread yet, so I'm posting. Life is steady and stable, I'm spending time with my kids, with my friends. Work is fine. I took a deliberate break from dating for a couple of weeks, but I haven't given up by any means. Two of my three kiddos have October birthdays, and I have a trip to Chicago planned in about a month. Life moves forward, slowly, steadily, calmly. For those of you in turmoil, hang in there, it's possible. Something better is on the way.
