Bring it on Bitches!

Yesterday was fantastic.  I had a great sleep and woke up feeling like life was falling into the right places.  I got dressed, wearing a professional suit for work, with my hair and skin looking fabulous.  I had some fucking confidence and felt like a million bucks.  It's been a while since I've felt like that, and its good to be back.  I was sick with step throat this past weekend.  Tonight I will need that confidence and charisma/charm as I head into a lions den of successful single women who I will be mingling with and flirting with at a black-tie Holiday Gala, and I'm ready.  Bring it on bitches!

Most importantly, my kids have heard the news about mom and dad getting a divorce and they are doing very well with that news.  We took an hour this past week to discuss it with them and get feelings out on the table.  She and I talked to each of them together and it was something we had planned out about as well as we possibly could.  It went better than I thought it would.  Sure, there were some tears, some shocks, and  a lot of questions, but the kids know that nothing is changing in our home.  I'm not moving out, and no one else is moving in.  Things are staying the same, but for now, I feel better that they are in the know about mom and dad not being "in love" anymore.  I expect that the kids will be taking time to absorb it all and may have some concerns down the road.

When we finished talking to them we took them out to dinner and had a nice family meal.

Next it will be our parents and families.  That might not go over so smoothly.  We'll see.

I have been terrible at commenting to all of  you on your posts and thanking you for your comments.  For that I am really sorry.  I hope things will back to a normal pace soon.

Good luck with the fam. I'm sure they'll see you're handling it all maturely and they'll get over the shock.

I'm glad you had one of those good days where you felt confident and sexy and put together. Those days don't come often enough, I find.

I'm glad things went well with the kids, too. Will you be telling the rest of the family prior to the Christmas holiday or will you wait? Either way, I hope it goes better than you're expecting.

Glad to see you back, and thrilled to hear you sounding so confident and content.

Having some of that weight lifted from your shoulders probably helps, huh? Glad that's going well.

Children are more resilient than we give them credit for. I'm happy to hear that both of you sat down with them together, years from now that will make a huge difference for them. Good luck, I know this trekk is far from over.

That sounds like the ol' Dewey! I hope telling the folks went better than expected and that you flirted up a storm at the holiday party.
