It's been two steps forward, one back, but forward nonetheless.
I had to refinance the house, hoping a reassesment of the value would allow me to pull out enough equity to buy her out. Luckily it was. I paid off the last remaining bill we had together, a home equity loan we took out to redo the kitchen.
She mentioned her frustrations since moving out, hinting at giving up everything and asking to come back. That led to more of me climbing into my own head wondering "what if" only to be let down again.
Peanut & The Champ are good. They are at the beach with their grandparents. I brought them out there last Friday. I spent the day with them before driving back home.
Here are what keeps me going through all of this.
They won't be home until Thursday. I have never went this long without them. I tell myself that they are fine and having a great time.
Just wish I could say the same about myself.
