Many things both big and little have happened since my last post, but anything I write up I'll get to later.

The big news is that I'm leaving Dallas this upcoming Monday. Things here haven't gone well for a long time yet I've stubbornly hung in there, figuring things would get better. He has said he felt the same way, but we never sat down and had a reasonable conversation about it. There is always blame, but no one is at fault in the end. It just didn't work.

Thanks for hanging in there with me through the turbulence. I appreciate every one of you.

I hope that you are alright.

I tried to ping you in gchat. Cell phone number is in Facebook.

Want to see you to make fabric arrangements but I care about you so let me know if there is anything I can do to help you pack or anything I can say to make you feel better, and I hope that wherever you are going to makes you a lot happier .

And if it works out in the end either way, I hope things get better for you.

I am as well as I could expect, I just have to figuratively kick myself a lot to stay on task right now.

I saw your chat when I checked my mail this morning.

There isn't much to do to pack except taping up boxes, which we have more than enough of to pack up the entire apartment if I wanted to do that. I plan on putting together a box of kid-friendly cottons and flannels along with the Robeez booties for you. If I don't get to you by this weekend, I can stop by on Monday.

I feel sad thinking that I'm giving up and leaving after I've hung in there for so long, but I have to stop enabling Kevin's issues and give him the space he needs to get his life together. I had two sessions with a therapist while I was on vacation and it really helped me get back on track; I found one I'd like to see after I get to Colorado and they offer a free initial consultation so I'm feeling good about meeting them.

*hugs* I was wondering if it was a temp thing this trip or not.

The trip was supposed to be a vacation from the grind of life here. It ended up being more of recharging my batteries to get my stuff together after things basically imploded in my absence.

I'm really looking forward to returning to Colorado.

I would offer you my guest room except:

1) North Carolina is, in fact, one of the rings of hell.

2) It's boring around here.

3) I suspect you need time away from brain injured people.

4) I also suspect you'd prefer being with family at this time.

If, however, you'd really like to come, fire me a message and I'll break it to the man-child that we need to clear out the guest room of debris.

I appreciate the offer. I'm going to move back in with my parents and work through the stuff I have stored there while I get my life together. It's time for me to stop putting things off until some mythical right time and get things done.

I really hope the change will make things easier for you, you definitely deserve good things.

Right now the next week is what I'm focusing on. Once I'm in Colorado, I'll regroup my efforts to get things straightened out of the messy tangle I've let them become over the last few years.

Big hugs, Melissa. You are a very, very strong woman.
Jun. 24th, 2010 12:06 pm (UTC)

If there is anything I can do to help?
Jun. 24th, 2010 01:13 pm (UTC)
*hugs* Best of luck to you and the kiddo!
Jun. 24th, 2010 01:24 pm (UTC)
most excellent. It's hard to end something that you really meant from the beginning to not end.

where will you be? If/when you're in Denver, I insist that we spend some time in person. I'm sure Art would be up for it, as well.

Take care!

I didn't really want to end it but things had gotten to the point where it became unhealthier for me and Laurel to stay here than to leave. I really wanted to keep her in the same elementary school.

I'll be moving back in with my parents in Evergreen, so I hope to see you, Art, and a lot of my Colorado friends once I'm back.

*hug* Let me know if there's anything I can do to help... I think this is for the best... *hug*

Where are you moving?
Jun. 24th, 2010 03:50 pm (UTC)
Back in with my parents in Colorado.
Jun. 24th, 2010 04:38 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry it came to this, but I hope things are better for you. Good luck with the move. Glad I got to meet you before you left!
Jun. 24th, 2010 08:43 pm (UTC)
What a relief! I'm glad that you're getting out of there. Let me know if there's anything I can do for you and Laurel.
Jun. 25th, 2010 03:09 pm (UTC)
I know that it is sad when things end, but you need to make choices which are the best for you and your small one. best of luck.

Didn't know you were back online until today so sorry this comment is late. I wish you nothing but luck and good things in Colorado! I know what it's like to fight tooth and nail to keep something broken together, but each something is different so it's hard to know when it's time to say 'when'. Take care! *Hugs*
