Missing In Action...

Friday, January 25, 2008

I know I haven't been around lately and I just wanted to explain why. We left to go on vacation on Dec. 21st and got home on Jan 3rd. We all caught bad stomach virus and were all sick from Jan 4th to Jan 9th. That night my spouse & I got into a huge argument. He carried it into the next day and I finally decided I'd had enough. I won't go into all the details, but I left him on Jan 11th. He says he wants to work things out, but I'm not really sure I want to any more. I'm tired of being treated like a sub-human by him. I am currently back at the house, but only for the sake of my son. I'm currently hunting for a job so I can put away every penny I make to be able to get my own place instead of having to stay with family. I know that it will go better for me with any potential custody issues if I have a job & a place to stay instead of hopping from home to home. I also want to stay in this area for custody reasons. I'm not trying to hurt anyone. I just want to feel safe again and I want to know my son is safe as well.

Anyway, when I left on the 11th, my parents and I packed as much as we could fit into Dad's truck and my car and left. My scale, food scale, and all my exercise stuff are stuck in a storage unit in South Louisiana, and I'm in Dallas. I don't know when I'll be able to make the 8-hr (or more) trip back down there to pick up some of my things. Finding work has to be a priority right now.

So, I may not be around as much, but I'm still here and still a part of the great things going on at SP.

Please pray for me for strength, direction, and peace.

    I found your blog thru laundrychick, and for some reason, came to read your blog. I'm glad that i did. I'm so sorry to hear about what's been going on in your life....i do know that from experience, it's easier to stay than go and you've shown your strength by the decision you've made. Sometimes, well, you have to take care of you in a relationship....and it's hard to do that when you don't feel safe. Know that i'll keep you and your son in my thoughts and prayers and if you need an ear, please leave me a note. Lots of soft hugs.....

    Yes, prayer, definitely! You're in my thoughts daily! I'm proud of you for doing what you need to do to keep Caleb and yourself safe even in the face of great difficulties! Hang in there!
