Life Update

You might have noticed that I haven’t posted here in quite some time, so I thought today I would give a little life update and explain where I have been.

2020 has been a tough year for virtually everyone, but around the time the coronavirus pandemic was starting to become a reality in my part of the country, my husband and I separated. While the marriage had never been perfect I found out there had been infidelity and a very tangled web of lies. 

I spent three months in complete isolation. I am high risk for coronavirus, so I wasn’t able to see friends and family unless we social distanced. My husband was still picking up my groceries and helping me around the house, and was virtually my only connection to the outside world. 

My stepsons come and stay with us ever summer, and we were able to reach and agreement to where the boys would still stay. My husband also stayed in the house. There were times that it seemed like we were a pretty happy family, and then times when I realized the lies and infidelity were continuing. After a lot of drama he ended up removing the boys from my home early and taking them to his mother’s house.

I have filed for divorce and despite him pushing me to do so all summer, now he refuses to sign and wants to fight it out in court. Truly nothing about this process has been easy.

I’ll be ok. I am a strong person and this isn’t the first storm I have weathered in life. A lot of people have asked how they can help me. To be honest, I need to get back to generating an income. So how can you help? Read my blog posts, watch my YouTube videos, purchase products from my affiliate links, etc. I am so blessed to have such a strong community around me and this blog, so stay tuned to follow my journey. It’s a little bumpy right now, but I know I’m going to like the destination.
