What Was I Thinking???

I have a new holiday. Actually it's a new anniversary...the day my divorce became final. January 27th is my new special day.

My ex husband and I were married for almost 6 years. He was in the military (Nat'l Guard) and his unit was activated. We got married quickly, but had already been engaged for 4 months.  He had been married before...a lot of times before. Hind sight is always 20/20. I loved him and did all that I could for him.

Three months after our 3rd anniversary, I found out I was pregnant. We weren't trying to get pregnant but we also weren't doing a lot of anything to keep it from happening. I was shocked/excited/scared. He was unemotional. He has 2 daughters from a previous marriage and now another on the way. Things were okay for a bit, and then I guess he had a midlife crisis.

My ex husband went out the door on November 26, 2006 to go to work and NEVER CAME HOME. He left me with no job (I was a stay-at-home mom), no car, and no money!!! Nice product of 13 years active duty in the military and 9 years in Nat'l Guard, huh?!?!? Please do not get me wrong-I fully support the military-I just hate him.

Needless to say, my son and I have lived with family for the past 2 years almost and I have gotten our lives somewhat back on track. I went to nursing school, graduated, got my nursing license, and start my new nursing job this Friday. We are moving into our own home in a couple of weeks and the best part is........


Life has a wonderful way of coming full circle..

but I still hate him for what he did not only to me, but to MY now 3 year old son.
