gingermillie - I'm actually feeling really good at the moment, DH and I are back to a really good place again, and I'm moving on from my business and old friends and drawing a line under it all. It feels quite liberating actually - the future is an open book! So I'm looking at it as exciting now, rather than being in grief over it all.
I didn't mention DSS because everything is going really good there! Thanks for remembering him and the situation we were in. We ended up with pretty much shared care and it is working, really, really well. DSS is very happy and seems to be thriving now that it's all said and done, and he's adjusting very well. We're helping him with his homework and he's doing better at school and is going ahead in leaps and bounds. With me being away - he is very familiar with me traveling for work so it wasn't a negative impact for him. I still Skyped and called him and I've been traveling for work and away for two - three weeks at a time a few times a year since he was five years old, so he's very used to it. Since I'm back we're back to our tight little family unit and it feels really good.
Things are looking up, thanks for checking in, much love to you
