A Big Change and a Goodbye

Well, as some of you know, the last few weeks of my life have been very heartbreaking, stressful and almost unbearable. So, I made the decision to move back to the South, the home of my heart. I am in Kentucky currently with my family; going to finish my degree, get my feet on the ground etc., and then we'll see what's further down the road.

I had to leave my precious baby dog behind with my soon to be ex. I am glad he was willing to take her since it was not possible to bring her with me at this time. He and I finally have an initial agreement worked out for our disillusionment to finally come to an end, thank goodness. I am so tired of it all and ready for it to be over and done with.

Also as some of you know, I had to quit my job because things just got too out of control. I won't go into all of the details, but one of the big things was that I kept getting promised that I would be paid and never did. Suffice it to say, my former boss owes me quite a bit of money and I think it make take the legal route to get it out of her, which is a shame. She has not acknowledged my resignation letter, my request for my pay, the box of work things that I sent back to her at my cost...nothing. Its such a shame, really. I am pretty aggravated at her right now because of all of the hurt and pain that she caused me on top of the pay situation.

It was a little hard leaving Columbus the other day; a little tear in the eye, but it was the right move to make. I had had enough of having my chain yanked over and over by the soon to be ex; he has been not very nice about some things since I have been here even. Geez, I am so ready for this to be over and to just get on with my life. I have had enough of him and enough of a lot of things lately; just need to the dissolution done, my former boss to live up to her obligation and pay me what I am owed and get on with my life.

So, here I am. I am taking classes on the web with Columbus State this quarter and both professors have been cool about it all, the move etc., willing to work with me and me being in a different state and all. This fall I hope to be back at the college I started my college career at 22 years ago; I should be able to finish up my degree in a short period of time. My graduation gift to myself will be a trip to Tuscany, Italy. I love that movie "Under the Tuscon Sun" with Diane Lane and it fits me right now.

Here's a song for my soon to be ex:

"I've Always Been In Love With You" by Madonna

And now a song for the new life I am starting and what a blast it will be:

"We Will Rock You & We Are the Champions" by Queen

Ya'll have a good night.
