Reflections on the Year

2015 is coming to a close very soon, and it has been interesting so far. The time I've had to think lately had my mind wandering to some strange places.

Small Victories

My divorce is final, which is a large victory since I left my husband during September of 2013. The year of his not paying child support so that I can have his parental rights terminated is almost up! It is better to severe his ties than it is to wait until he is far enough behind to be sent to jail.

While my finances are not where I am comfortable with them being for the moment, I see relief in sight. My account is overdrawn until morning, but it is not stopping me from having hope that relief will come soon.

I have a plan, and I can only hope that it works out for the best. I'm not sure that I have it figured out correctly, but I can hope that I do.

Hoping for a Miracle

I would be hoping for a miracle of sorts right now. Lately, it seems that we are beginning to argue. It seems are scheduling conflicts are getting to both of us. I'm hoping to see him soon. We need to sit down and talk things out.

It may be one of the most difficult talks that I have had to have in my life. We have to establish boundaries and rules. I am set in my ways, so is he. We have to find middle ground.

Daily Life
I'm hoping for some assistance with my little girl. I'm not sure when but the two of us have gotten into a strange routine that doesn't involv a lot of what we are actually supposed to be doing.

I'd like us to go places together as a family but it doesn't look like it's going to work out that way.

Hoping Things Improve

The last year while not devastating has not been the best I've had. I'm hoping that next year will be better financially and family wise. My other half and I have a long way to go in order to reach an understanding.

This week is not helping us to reach that understanding. It has been filled with misunderstandings and I am hoping that they will be cleared up soon.
