I made it into my own cute little apartment...no bed yet, and no dining room set yet...but, it will come :) found out a bunch of stuff about us having VERY little money (keeping in mind we had at least 600K in savings less than a year ago)--...and being in a massive amount of gambling debt. AND... and on Saturday when I was moving the last of my stuff out, her and her 10 year old were still calling his phone! **shaking.head** But, dude, I'm OUT and I'm sleeping soundly and life feels good today.

Thank you for the support. And, for those of you still crying in your beds at night (like I was a month ago cuz I didn't know where he was or who he was with)... There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Keep working towards it, you'll get there xoxo the time just has to be right

I can hardly wait for the day when I have my own place and can go on with my life.

congrats sinfiniti!!! I remember my first night in my new home when I separated from exh! I slept on an airbed (left my bed with my ex--it had his cooties on it;) ) with my two pups next to me and it was probably the first good night sleep I had in a very long time. It is only up from here on sinfiniti. I did have ups and downs but when I realized I didn't have to carry the pain anymore my life improved by leaps and bounds. I am rebuilding from scratch financially but the drama of ex is gone from my life!

How fun, you can decorate and furnish your own apartment in your own style. I found lots of things at moving sales and consignment shops. It's amazing what you can do will little money, quite rewarding actually:)

congrats again!, Ollie
