The Move In.

In my previous post I talked about "5 Things They Don't Tell You About Moving In Together." I wanted to take a step further in today's post to tell you a more detailed account of things I did and have noticed about the days following the move in with my ex (almost) husband.

When we were dating and before we got married my ex (almost) husband was all about getting married after we graduated college and started a career. He was in school to become a physical therapist and it would have taken more than 5 years to complete all the schooling, etc. that he needed to start a career.

... then less than 6 months later we found out that I was pregnant with my now 3 year old... and he proposed. THIS was a red flag for my parents... why I did not listen? I don't know.

I honestly don't even remember them saying anything about it.

Other before we were married things I knew but never addressed... I knew he was a cheater. I found videos, images, text messages, etc. on his p…

I Failed. . .

Some of my family and friends know that I accepted a part time job in November at an office location in downtown Charleston. It was the best job I have ever had! I enjoyed getting up, taking a shower, putting make-up on and dressing in business professional attire. AND I enjoyed the work. It was administrative work.. filing papers, submitting compliance paperwork, answering phones, talking to people coming into the office.

BUT the cost for a sitter was 200$ a week and I was making about 115-130$ a week. So money was coming from "thin air" to pay for said sitter.


So for the past week (since last Monday) I have been without a job. I have been applying to 20/30 places EVERY DAY! I have updated my resume multiple times. Beefing it up and making it look good.

and while I can't help but be concerned for the next few weeks... I know that it was the best decision to make. While they did promise a really great promotion and good pay.. the promise was empty.

So today I quote Thomas Edison, "I failed my way to success."

How have you failed your way to success?
Leave me some encouragement! My time will come.
