Ok house is almost ready for our move, some of our things are already there. Once my son's classes are over for the semester he plans on moving in "to protect our things"...

HOW ON EARTH am I going to take care of 3 teens with 200.00 a month to feed them?...I did ask M to keep paying health and car insurance and I wont hit him up for child support (no I cannot do

It will not be easy but you can do this!! It will help that the kids are behind you and ready to do this!!

Getting a storage unit will help a lot so you can sort though things at a slower pace but if you can't keep in mind that your happiness is more important and you may not feel like things are better at first but in the long run you will see that they are!! The bumps in the road will still be there but they will be different ones and easier to deal with as time goes by and you realize that you are no longer walking on egg shells or wondering what he will do next. Nothing can compare to that feeling or take away from it!

I am so happy for you that you are taking this step and somehow you will find a way to make it work! Your children and you are so strong to have gotten this far and you guys will pull together and find a way to make it work!!
