Well, everything was final with the divorce at the beginning of the month. I went on vacation somewhere I'd never been just before it went through and that was such a gift--visited friends with Alaska, saw so much of a beautiful state, and caught up with a very dear friend I've stayed in touch with since Kindergarten!

I think lately I've been feeling a bit numb--after the whole roller coaster of all the legal transition I feel a lot like I do when I want to sneeze but can't. I know there's a good cry coming, but it's just not happening. But I feel ok--sad but relieved it's over and peaceful about moving ahead.

I went to two very dear friends' wedding two weeks after the divorce was final. I thought I was fine until I started to cry on the drive 90 min out of town and made myself hold it together. Once I got through the ceremony it was a wonderful evening with dear friends but the ceremony was really hard. I guess that would have done it for the good cry but I didn't want to do that during their wedding and managed to hold it together.

I hope everyone's ok. Other than feeling kind of exhausted and relieved, things are good. I hope everyone else is doing ok, too.
God sent angels down to earth in the form of dogs with notes saying 'don't judge, just love.' They ate the notes but keep trying to deliver the message.
