As you can imagine, a lot of changes have been happening in the space between this and last post; most of the changes were happening within.
I'm not going into the details of the separation or why I chose to move on, but I will tell you this: it was the best decision I have ever made. I feel free. I feel alive. I'm beginning to live the life I always wanted to but couldn't because of the rut my relationship was in for years.
In the last month I got back on the road running and biking (and dropped 17 lbs.), I kicked my professional life up a few notches, became a road warrior after buying a car, cut and highlighted my hair, and bought a few new things for my wardrobe. Yes, perhaps a little too much for the wallet in the recession, but I still have plenty of money to pay my bills and I plan on getting a second job with all this free time that opened up for me. I am not a new woman, I am the woman I always meant to be but haven't been.
Some of the big things coming around the corner for me are getting a new teaching job and moving (hopefully out of Maine) and when my finances are settled and recovered I'm going to get a dog. Not just any dog though, a gorgeous Weimaraner.

I've always wanted one but my ex didn't. Phooey on him! I don't have to worry about his thoughts on the matter any more! I've loved Weims for as long as I can remember and they are the perfect breed for my active lifestyle. We'll keep eachother outside and enjoying life! :)
That's all for now. I just wanted to give everyone a head's up on what I've been up to. I'll do a more in-depth report of some of my shenanigans soon. :)
