Hey there Abby. Sorry I didn't get back to you yesterday. I went out for coffee with an old friend plus I am still working nights, so I sleep in the morning and then in the evening. Basically, I had no computer time yesterday, so no BDW time.

As for how I am doing....I am doing alright. I am just staying strong for the kids, and one of my coworkers that was in an extremely abusive relationship and her ex-DH had drug and alcohol addictions has helped me through my night shifts. Larry is still in jail and has to wait until tomorrow when he has court. Then we will find out what is happening with him. Will he get out? OR will he have to stay in the Remand until his trail date? We will see. He also has condition so he can't contact me, he can't come near our apt, and he can only come to the hospital for medical reasons. He also has to stay way from alcohol and any place that sells and/or serves alcohol. I think that the harder days are still to come, but I will deal with them as they come, and I am sure that you will ll hear from me during those times.

You are all so supportive, and I it is so calming knowing that people out there do care and aren't passing judgement! I thought this forum was great before, but I appreciate it even more now as people here are good or more than helping with wedding planning and the stress with it! Thank you!!!!!

Erica, I am also sorry that you're having to deal with this. However, I'm super proud of you for being an awesome mother and for being good to yourself.

 

You did what had to be done for the safety of your children even though it was difficult to do, and that really says a lot about how fantastic you are.

 

Good luck to you as the rest of this unfolds. I wish the best to you.

Don't worry Abby, I don't plan on going anywhere. If anything, I am hoping to be around here more often again. My BDW time has become quite scarce lately but I hope that isn't the case anymore.


Thank you again to everyone and their words of wisdom and support. It really means alot!!!!!!

Erica-

 

You are an amazingly strong & wonderful woman. My prayers go out to you & your children. I've dealt with my brother's drinking problem for years, so I can completely empathize with your situation. I know I can't really say anthing to you that will make it better. Just know that I am here for you...even if you need me to help take your mind off of it with silly topics (like Y&R).

 

*hugs*

I am late getting to this thread, but I wanted to express how sorry I am that all of this happened!

You are a very strong woman to make the wise (and difficult choice) that your kids should not be in an unhealthy environment like that! Unfortunately I am all too familiar with drug and alcohol abuse (my father passed away from a drug overdose). Maybe this is the "bottom" that your DH needed to realize the damage he's doing to everyone around him??

We're all here for you!!! cheesy.gif cheesy.gif

Erica I am glad you are being so strong. Remember we are always here for you :)

 

You are doing whatever it takes to protect your children and keep them safe and no one would ever judge you for that! You are a role model for others in your situation because you had the courage to stand up for yourself and your kids and that is not always easy.

 

I wish you all the best. Please keep us updated.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
