And I return.......

So it has been quite a while since I last posted. Partially because blogs are passae with facebook around; partially because I didn't want certain people viewing details of my life before they were shared.

However, this areana gives me an opportunity to voice concerns in my head, chronical life changes, arrange thoughts and maybe even provoke outside response with no personal bearing. We'll see....

So in the last 8 months or so what has been going on at "too little time". Well

* In August I purchased a condo. This followed moving out on my own.

After 10 years of living in a marriage that had been dead and burried long ago, waiting for my children to grow up I just couldn't do it anymore. Not a big shock to anyone who bothered to be observant... it has been a difficult time for some. For me, I am sorry for the pain it has caused my children. However, for the first time in 10 years I am at peace.

* In September I saw the lawyer to make the new reality legal.

A formality, but necessary to put lines in the sand. Because of the length of our marriage (23 years) and that the children are of advanced age (18 and 15) I have a final hearing of March 1st. Approx 4.5 months after filing.

* In October I decided to return to school..... again.

Though a slow process getting the ball rolling, I have started my first of 10 BSN compleation courses. I expect to have my BSN approximately next spring. My first class started this week. As of last week I was sure that this was a huge mistake. Week one is down. Previewing week 2, it appears that most of this is writing, research, etc. My first degree is in English. Though not saying this is easy (NEVER) my prior learning should compliment my current learning.

Are there things that I wish for. I have dreams that I hope become reality. I have Faith that in God's timing all things are possible.

To the future I look!
