3/3/9 = Square Root Day
Also, today is my mom's birthday!
Also, today I got divorced.
I assumed that everyone (ya know, my zillions of followers) knew I might be getting a divorce when I wrote this post back in September. And posted this photo of myself crying, and this photo of me in the corner, and this photo - among others.
Based on a decent number of messages I received today, apparently not many people knew I was working on a divorce. Which leads me to believe that most of you probably don't realize that it was my second marriage.
I was married to Travis for five years before I ever even knew James existed.
Trav and I are still great friends, have nothing but love between us, and wish nothing but the best for each other. I've known him for at least 22 years.
But that's what the September post led up to - today's divorce. In September, I suddenly disappeared and went into hiding for a month. Wow, that was craziness. Not even my parents knew where I was. During that time, I kinda-sorta lost my mind a bit - and got dangerously skinny. But my wits came back and I started to be less crazy, or whatever you want to call it. Think rationally - that's a good way to word it. During this difficult time in my life, I realized there are A LOT of people who love me and were worried about me before I even realized there was a problem.
I've kept up with my self-portrait project (minus those days I lost between Kim and my Gramma Sue). I've learned a lot about myself in these last 265 days -- I went from spending a lot of time alone, or alone with James. Gradually, I began spending more and more time with my family and friends -- just like I had during the years before. Life has changed a lot for me during the last 265 days and I have no clue what the future holds.
Everyday, something unexpected happens.
Oh and one last thing...
So today I felt all great about myself - wore my favorite skirt. Of course, after court the zipper broke and I couldn't get my skirt off. Jay fixed it (sorta).
Like I said, everyday something unexpected happens.
This is Jay.
