adjusting to what life has sent my way, while rediscovering who i am

Welcome Back to SparklyBecky

Welcome back to me!  I have been off this blog for 9 months and what a  nine months it has been.  Highs and lows of divorce, dealing with an ex who is nice when you are doing things his way and a jerk when you aren’t.  I think someone forgot to tell him that once you’re divorced, the ex wife can do what she wants.  He can’t control her anymore.

I went back and browsed the few posts I did write way back, one was about deciding where to live.  I ended up and rented a house.  I’m so glad I did, it was a great transition home while deciding where I wanted to live.  I’m excited to say that in February I bought a lot in a subdivision and started planning the building of a brand new house.  My motto was “out with the old and in with the new”.  Two weeks ago we moved into our brand new home.  I got a new bed, new sectional couch, new dining room table, new beds for the kids, and even some new dishes.  I erased as much as I could of the past.  Do I sound bitter?  I don’t mean too.  I guess I still weave through the stages of grief, but I truly am happy…..a little lonely sometimes.  I’ve done a little dating, but I’ll save those stories for another time.

As a teacher school is out at the end of this week.  I’m looking forward to yoga, walking, jogging, tennis, working in my yard, exploring some new recipes in my new kitchen……and anything else interesting that comes along my way.  I hope to blog and post pictures within this online journal not only for me, but anyone else who happens along it’s path. 

As the end of the first year of divorce draws slowly near (just 2 months away), I look forward to seeing what else is in store for sparklybecky.
