Well I know it has been a very long time since I have updated the blog. Most people follow me on Facebook and have been able to keep up with us there but I just haven't had the time, energy, and heart to put a post together.
At the end of the summer I made the decision to end my marriage with Jesse. This was a decision that I had thought about for a very long time and I finally got the courage to start taking the steps. I have to say that Jesse really is a great guy, he is just not the right guy for me. We are both better off with different people that fit us better.
So in September I told Jesse the news and began making arrangements to move out. In November I moved out with the girls to a new house in Gilbert. We absolutely love the area and the girls have responded better than I expected. Jesse found a place in Tempe about 15 minutes away so the traveling back and forth is not too difficult.
We are now learning about what our new normal consists of and we have had a few bumps in the road and many modifications but things seem to be going smooth now. The girls see Jesse every Tuesday, every other Thursday, and every other weekend.
The divorce will be final on February 7th and I will be going back to my maiden name. 2011 was a year for changes but I see a bright future for 2012.
