I haven’t updated in too long.
So what has been happening?
Well, 3 weeks ago, I went and saw one of my favorite bands, They Might be Giants, play in New Haven. It was AWESOME! They played the entirety of their album “Flood”, for the 30th anniversary of it, and then did a whole second set and FOUR encores. They are going to be doing a show for their album “Mink Car” in May, and I am going to that for sure.
2 weeks ago, Christine and I went and filed for divorce. Only took about 2 hours. There is a good chance we won’t need a physical court appearance as we have no assets, kids or anything else to divide. We are taking our bills and debts and just splitting up. Took us 10 minutes to get married, and a ton of hoops and paperwork to get divorced.
I am slowly getting more and more ok with it. We don’t work as a couple. Plain and simple. After 11 years, it is time for me to find myself again, learn to actually love that self, and continue on with life. We may try to be friends after she moves out, and we have some time and space apart. That may work. It may not. Only time will tell.
So now I am just concentrating on getting myself in order. I am still in therapy, and making good progress there. I need to up my income somehow, and pay off my debts. I am tired of wasting my income, and in turn, hours of my life, with credit card minimums. I want to try to find something I can do part-time, after my regular job, and hopefully from home…to make some extra cash. If not, I guess I will have to get a second job at like…a gas station or something (ugh). I prefer not to…but also, it wouldn’t be permanent. Only until my debts are gone, and I have a stash saved up.
Anyway, that is what I have been up to lately.
More updates as they happen.
Remember, there’s more to life than paying bills and dying.
And I love you all.
