Coming Out of Retirement

7 11 2016

As always, it’s been a while since I have written. Gone are the promises of writing more often. I have learned to write when the mood strikes me or when I can. A short recap of my life since my last post…

After leaving my ex in 2015, guess what I did? If you have been reading for a while you guessed it. We tried to work it out. I left Arizona and returned to Tennessee in August 2015. A month later he called and led me to believe he wanted to be a family. He moved down here as well and secured a great job. We were doing well, I thought. Bought a Mercedes, I was working part-time and taking care of the kids, and managed to finish my Bachelor’s degree in August of this year. Two days after graduation he left me for someone he got pregnant at work. Obviously, everyone in his family knew except for me. Good riddance. This time there is no recourse. We have court in December and I will finally be rid of the drama and move on with my life. I have definitely learned my lesson for the final time. He left me with all the bills, two car payments, credit cards, and has barely been to see his daughter. All the jobs I have found want to pay me $15 or $16 an hour as a recent college grad. That’s just not going to cut it.

At this point I have decided that after the first of the year, if I am capable of holding out that long, I will go back on the road for a while to get some money together. My children will stay with my family. They surprisingly support my decision and are totally understanding due to the unforeseen circumstances I have found myself. They said you have to do what you have to do. I will return home often to visit. Who knows what I will do then. Right now I am simply concerned about getting out of this hole I am in. I definitely plan on working the Master’s, Superbowl, and traveling. I’m getting too old for this and it saddens me to leave my kids, but sometimes you have to make sacrifices to get where you want to be. I have completely stopped drinking, which will help my focus at work. I honestly don’t want to return home without at least $20,000 in the bank. I have always been good at making money and now that my vices are gone — cigarettes, alcohol, eating out — I will do well. Will keep you posted with my Crazy Southern Life. I’ll be coming soon to a city near you.
