Life gets in the way some more...

Not to get all Jerry Springer on you all, but my life has been struck by a drama streak as of late. Oh by the way, this drama streak is quite an unwelcome visitor.

Close to eight years ago the five year long process of divorcing my first husband ceased. And let me tell you all, I spent a lot of money and pretty much came out of the whole nightmare with half my sanity and the clothes on my back. In short, sucked to be me.

Be that as it may I have since recovered and rebuilt my life out of the ashes of what was lost. No small task. Not without it's obstacles to be sure. However, I endured and I can proudly say, prevailed. I am my own woman with a new husband, fruitful career, a great condo in a cool hood and a fantastic relationship with my daughter despite all of the adversity the two of us have had to endure from my former spouse. So as you can imagine, the absolute last thing on this here planet that I or my child want to undertake at this time is to revisit that period of strife that sought only to drive a wedge between mother and daughter. Unfortunately, we are having to do just that.

I feel as if I've gone back into time. My stomach is queasy. I don't sleep. I can feel my heart beating fervently inside my chest. My daughter's face a reflection of similar symptoms. Needless to say, sucks to be us.

At any rate, I am hoping that this very unwelcome drama will not linger. I am praying that we Linoleum's come away from this newest chapter of a very old and tattered novel unscathed. If you will, please keep us in your prayers and positive thoughts. A bit of good energy from the blogosphere would do us a great service.

Regularly scheduled craftiness will resume soon...

You did it before, you'll do it again. Good thoughts are on their way.

I'm crocheting a tube worm in your honor and every stitch releases a hefty aliquot of crafty strength that travels the binary tidal wave and buttresses your ever growing reserves. You are a survivor and nothing changes that.

catie said...

What a drag. How hard it is to close a book and then have it blow (or explode) open again. Keep a positive attitude, things will get better. Happy thoughts your way...

Pam said...

Sending nothing but good thoughts your way. Hang in there.

Deneen said...

You know I am sending good thoughts and good vibes your way. I've discussed with you before the horrible situation I went through 13 years ago with my ex-cost, emotions, the whole thing and I know it sucks. Occasionally stuff pops up in my life involving it and it tears you down and it usually occurs out of the blue, without any warning. I didn't have children with him, but the legal crap literally has sucked the life out of me at times-keep positive thoughts Regina and if you need to vent, lemme know. Hugs to you and Lena.

As someone who's just starting that long, winding road, I feel for you. Yeah, I'm sure it sucks to be back on this end. You're a strong chica - hold your head high and this will be over before you know it. Big hugs to you.

ninaclock said...

I'm sorry that you are both in such a stressful and (I imagine) heart-wrenching time. Get advice from a lawyer. There is a lot of power in knowing exactly what your options are and what it takes to take effective action. My heart goes out to you and your daughter.

Sue said...

Oh dear! Hugs, Ms. L. My brother just went through his 2nd divorce, and I have an inkling on how difficult it can be. You're strong and intelligent, you and your daughter will come through and be that much better for it. Sending good thoughts your way. Take care.

You know, of all people, that Linoleums are a tough lot... take lots of tread wear but will still take a shine.

Hang in there Regina. I could throw a whole bunch of silly sayings and quotes to live by at you, but I won't. Just know that you are surrounded by friends, even if we've never actually met in person. :o)

Having been through a nightmare situation with my ex, I can relate a bit... I said a prayer for you and your daughter; may you both grow strong despite the difficulties.
