The Other-side of Divorce

So 2 days ago it happened. My one year is up. I have been separated for a year and we can now finally apply for divorce (though we need to get our separation/custody agreement finished first). Its weird. Weird how fast the time went by, and how different I am from this time last year.

Funny thing is different isn't really the right word. I'm more me than I have been in years. I've gone back to doing the things I liked before I got married. The things I let slide. Apparently it took losing myself in someone else to really discover who I was. I like who I am.

My newest adventure is I have become a home consultant for a little Canadian company. What do I sell you ask? Oh I know it's killing you. Avon? Nope. Mary-Kay? Nope.

Hanky Panky. That's right I am now a consultant for an adult toy company. And am super excited about it. My girl friends as I used to host these every few months when we were younger. They were always such fun. We always had the same girl from the same company come out and she was hilarious. What a great fun way to do a girls night. So one day after going to a friends jewelry party I was trying to think of a way to get a little extra cash and I thought of this.

I have my first party this weekend. I'm super excited. Wish me luck!

(anyone who lives in Vancouver or surrounding area and would love to have a party let me know. They have to be experienced at least once, I guarantee you'll spend the night laughing your ass off)

I hear you! I've been separated for 7 months now and I can't believe its been that long. I feel better lately, every day it gets a little easier to find my way back to a happier place. I have enjoyed reading your blog.

Doesn't the time go faster than you thought it would? Boy that's a good thing. I have found that exact thing too, my divorce which I thought would make me a sad, depressed, miserable old maid, has really just been an awakening. AND I can eat green peppers again, which is fabulous, cause ex forbid them in the house...tyrant. Hooray for you, and congrats on your new business venture:) Those are freakin' hilarious and FUN! And you can probably drink on the job, which is always a bonus in my book!

kpop- yes it gets better. There's ups and downs (especially when my ex is being "good") but I'm in a much happier place.

cari- why do i think if we lived near each other we'd get into heaps of trouble together. Lol
