4 bad months, a 30 day breakup... happy now

We had a long period of bad times. But I have not been this happy in months.

The whole relationship, I was moving much faster than him. It took him almost a year to love me, and at 1.5 years together he’s not ready to talk about marriage. Given that we had such an awful winter together, I am letting this go for a while.

We are both in our mid-thirties. I don’t have the time or drive to wait forever to see if someone wants me permanently. I know in 6-8 months I will be ready to walk if we are not progressing.

I am so happy now. He’s so wonderful and I love him!



Compost (read all 5 entries…)
WORMS!!! :P

Indoor worm composting is awesome!

My son and I got a 14 gallon bin and drilled holes in it. I bought a pound of worms and we contributed about 10 lbs of garbage for them to start.

I would NOT recommend throwing so much in right away. We got terrible odors after a week. The worst. It was because I overloaded it too soon. The garbage began to rot before the worms had a chance to eat it.

But now the worms are reproducing, the odor is much less, though not gone. I don’t add much, maybe 2 lbs of garbage a week tops. there’s still lots of undigested stuff in there.



pay off credit cards (read all 52 entries…)
getting sued + going back to school = $9460

A TON of progress was undone when my son’s father decided to sue me for custody. I maxed out most of my credit cards paying for my attorney.

Of course, I was also a student and had no disposable income for 10 months.

But, I am working an excellent job making more than I ever have been. My debt is higher, but so is my income. Everything is locked into low interest rates.

I found out the other day that my credit score is 745! WHAT??? And I was considering bankruptcy??? lol

Wow, I piled 6100 on my cards in 11 months? Good lord. I can’t believe it was once all down to 3400. I can get back to that though. It’s been done before so there’s a way :)
