About Me

My photo
Hello and welcome to a small snapshot of what life's like inside my little corner of the world. I'm Shelly, I have a satisfying career and I'm shackled to my supurb husband. I'm the step-monster to his stylish son and together we have two stunningly beautiful daughters - Sugar and Spice, two stubborn dogs and a squawking bird. These are just some of the stories of my life.

The Proceedings

I've told you about the impending divorce.

That sad and gloomy day will be upon me before I know it and much sooner than I would like.

He didn't ask for my opinion on the matter and was shocked when he learned that I had found out before he could tell me himself.

I'm not happy about it but I don't begrudge him better opportunities.

Today we had our all day divorce proceedings. We had to decide how things are going to be maintained without him around anymore.

It was a very long day!

At the end of the day, I walked away with custody of his child but without the benefit of child support.

He claims he'll still be around for me when I need him, but not to get mad if it takes him a while to respond. He won't be able to drop everything to help me out.

OUCH! There's a harsh dose of reality.

This is really happening. **GULP** My work husband is leaving me. **GULP-GULP** I'm not ready to be alone. **GULP-SNIFFLE-GULP**

I know that this is an amazing opportunity for me to learn a new skill set, making me more marketable for future advancement within the company; but that doesn't make it any easier to say goodbye. :(



  1. Today was the day - I'm sorry!

    Hope you have a good weekend though - have a good Mother's Day! SEe you - Kellan

  2. You are so funny!

    I am sorry about your "proceedings" today.....but just remember, when one door closes, another work husband comes through a window....or something like that.:)

    God Bless,

  3. It's me again. (I promise I'm not stalking!) :)
    I wanted to tell you that I tagged you on my blog today(Saturday), if you want to play.
    No pressure, just fun. :)

    God Bless,

  4. You crack me up...I hope you kept his stapler. That would really show him who's boss!
