My friend Stacey tells me that divorced women are happier in the end and men are financially better off...I can see that, I think.

It's been a month since the bomb dropped and I've managed to pick myself up, get a job, and get ready to move.  Next week, I'm packing what I can in my car, shipping what I can't and buying the rest when I get there...then I'll drive 2100 miles to my new home where I'll see this every day when I leave work:

I really didn't expect Reno to be so beautiful, but truly, I was stunned.  The mountains are gorgeous, and just a one hour drive away is north Lake Tahoe...and a prettier spot will be hard to find.

I had such a lovely time on my visit.  The folks at Jimmy Beans were beyond wonderful and nice and I can't wait to start working with them.

A new chapter where I'll get to's truly a wonderful thing.

(this isn't to say I'm not still sad, shocked, stunned, scared and all the other stuff, but I do see my way out).


  1. I have been behind on my blog reading, and was so sorry to hear of your life altering news. I can't even begin to imagine all the emotions you are going through. Best wishes for you and your new journey, you will be amazing!

    1. Thanks Andi. I'll get "fine" eventually...the packing up is hard to do!

  2. Im thrilled for you . GOod things ahead…..Im think you have done so many things so quickly ……So glad the Jimmy B folk are wonderful

  3. I'm so excited and happy for you. Those pictures of your new beautiful area are gorgeous. I'm a huge fan of #3. How can you look at that, and not feel optimistic?!?
