It has been nearly 3 YEARS since I've last blogged!! OMG. For anyone reading that has been here since the beginning, bless you and for those new readers:Welcome to the madness. I'm Cat and this is where I like to talk about my life and all that encompasses it.
For those that may know I was married for about a hundred years (ok 13 years, but I've known him since I was 13 so I don't really know adulthood without being in a relationship) Long story short, the marriage was toxic from the word "go". I tried everything in my power to make it work and finally realized that it wasn't going to work out. My kids were miserable and I couldn't keep having them be in this situation. I finally told him I wanted a separation on Dec 26, 2014.
In Feb 2015, I moved in with my good friend that I met online. Apparently everyone but me knew that he was the guy for me. I just thought he was an amazing guy and I considered him my best friend. He offered to let me and my kids stay with his family until I got on my feet, Once we moved in and I saw how he was with me and my kids in person, it took me all over 5 minutes to completely fall in love. He was everything I wanted and more. He treated my kids as if they were his and treated me as if I were a Princess. I had never even known it was possible to be talked to the way he talked to me and the way he looked at me was incredible. It truly was love at first site.
My ex would come and get our son every other week and during the drop off and pick ups, I could see a huge change in him. He apologized like mad and offered to help us in any way he could. He knew that I had moved on and was now with Zakk. (In fact, I was very quickly pregnant. And yeah it was planned. Zakk and I wanted a baby together.)
Fast forward to now and we are all living together because the traveling became too much and we all want to be close to each other. My ex is now an amazing friend and helps this whole family so much. We'd be lost without him. I don't know what happened, but since we broke up he has changed a lot.
On a more current note, I am still legally married but hoping to get our own place and divorced soon. I still want to be close enough so the kids will be near both parents of course. I'd never stop him from seeing his kids. We didn't work out, it shouldn't be taken out on the kids. That kinda stuff annoys me to no end.
I think that pretty much brings us all up to speed and now I'll be able to post current things and hopefully you'll understand. Any questions, just ask. I'm pretty open and I understand our situation is quite unorthodox and probably has you like "wtf did I just read?"
