    Looks like they both fell asleep after reading the very hungry caterpillar.

    Hmmm...that's a simple question with a complex answer. I'm in the middle of divorcing my husband. We haven't made it official yet with paperwork (due to technical details we're waiting another week or so), but we've run the whole gamut of emotions and have told our kids, friends, and family. Of course I'm the demon because I'm breaking up my family, but we're moving forward anyway and he's being quite generous and kind throughout this. I move out on the 1st of November, assuming I've signed a lease on an apartment by then. The kids are coping, and are thinking about it logically and have come up with spontaneous pragmatic questions. Doesn't mean they will be unaffected, but I think they're handling it quite well so far.

    How are you?

    Well...that escalated quickly.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    I was really wondering about you and him in particular since I remembered some eyebrow-raising stories earlier in thread.

    Speaking as someone who had to initiate a divorce myself: it really is rough on everyone, including yourself during the transition, but congratulations. You have the right attitude. "Breaking up the family" can genuinely be the healthiest possible option for everyone emotionally, including the kids.

    What I mean is... even if you love someone, that doesn't mean you can have a healthy relationship with them...

    Glad he's being a reasonably good sport about it, considering. That's a good start and I hope it continues even later. Wouldn't want the kids to get yanked around unnecessarily after all.

    Personally, I'm just really glad I didn't listen to my ex when he was like "Let's just have a baby, that'll distract you, right?" That was one of the last straws, actually.

    As for how I am... in the micro view, I've had a really tough couple of months. But in the macro view, I am still in a great living situation, relationship, job, kids are progressing nicely through life, future looks bright and stable, etc. I just need to more effectively convert my motivation into actual self-discipline for my own health's sake.
