My husband moved out two days ago. It is so strange not having him here. It is certainly what I know needed to happen, but it will take some time to get used to it. You can't just turn the page on 11 years overnight.
Last night was my first night in the house alone, my boys stayed at his place. It was different,...but it was okay. I went to dinner with my mom, and came home and had some wine and relaxed a bit. Strange how there isn't much cleaning up to do when you are the only one around! It was the first night I have ever spent alone in this house, alone in my bed.
Next weekend will be the real test. We are trading off with the children every other weekend, and next weekend will be my first weekend without them. I have no idea yet what I am going to do, but I need to make some sort of plans.
The strangest part was dropping my son off with him and then walking out the door, leaving them there, and going home. I know my kids are safe, happy, and well taken care of when they are with him, but it is going to take some time for it not to feel very strange.
