I don't want to get into specific details but I need for you guys to know what's going on. Jeff and I have been dealing with some issues for quite a while and we've been trying to work things out, including marital counseling, but we have been unable to. We filed for divorce last month and we are now living in separate houses. Robin seems to be dealing with the changes pretty well, but she's always been a VERY adaptable kid. She doesn't know that mommy and daddy aren't married anymore, but she does know that our family now has two houses. She's actually REALLY excited about having two bedrooms. During this transition time, we are all still spending time together. We even all spend the night in the same house from time to time.

Luckily, things are very amicable and Jeff and I are still very good friends and we get along well. I am actually still working with him at FIL's company with no plans of that changing. We work together extremely well.

At this point, we've really only told close friends and immediate family so please don't mention this on FB. I just wanted to let all of you know here because I consider you part of my extended family and you a huge support system. Plus, I didn't want a huge freak-out from y'all when I change my relationship status w/ Jeff on FB after the divorce is final.

Jeff and I both seem to be dealing with it pretty well now. When we first decided to split up, I was a complete mess. We both were. That whole time period is a blur. But, now I think I've somewhat come to terms with it (either that or it just hasn't completely hit me yet) and I'm functioning pretty well.

I'm so sorry you are going through this. I hope you can find more happiness apart than you had together. I'm happy for you that things have been amicable between you and Jeff, and I hope things continue that way as you raise Robin.

Oh Holly, I am so sorry to hear this. But very glad that you seem to be coming through it just fine. Are you going to stay in OK then or move back near family? My heart goes out to you, sweetie. (((hugs)))
