Stuck in the '70s

Now, it's REALLY official!

OK! As of one week ago today, it's really official. Signed by the judge and the clerk. Wow. Like a great weight lifted off my shoulders. I feel like I can actually be myself again, and it's as though the whole stupid thing never happened. As far as I'm concerned, that whole thing was a big lie, because the stuff he said to me the whole time we were together is nil and void since he returned to a world he said he was trying to escape when we met. At any rate, I've been financially used and verbally & emotionally abused, and anything I might say here on this blog cannot be taken in a libelous manner because anything that is true fact is not libel. I'm done with it. I'm moving on and going on with life, which is now great as I know it. One last picture is posted here, thanks to my brother, who has artistically rendered this snapshot of me and husband No. 2. Sums it up.

We went camping last weekend at a place not too far from here, in the hills of the Ozarks on the shores of a beautiful lake. Many, including Bozo, would say they would not like to do such a thing as it includes "roughing it." Well, let me tell you otherwise. We set up an 8-man tent on a slab big enough to accomodate four such tents. We ran the electrical cord to the screened in porch and watched DVDs on the 13-inch color TV of "Trailer Park Boys," "South Park" and MTV's "The '70s House" while talking to friends and family on the cell phone. We arose the next morning to a warm shower at the restrooms next door, plugged in the electric skillet and fried up bacon and eggs. This time, we didn't get rained on, so that was an advantage. If that's roughing it, I'm all for it. The lake was beautiful, and we bobbed around in the water for 3 or 4 hours until we were sufficiently bronze.

The brand new Home Depot in our town will open tomorrow night briefly; then we have the grand opening the next day. I'm a little nervous about it, but I know all will be well. This is a great company to work for, and I LOVE walking the floor daily to see all the cool new stuff in stock.

The night of grand opening, I'll be heading to Little Rock for the Donny Osmond concert. The day I was hired and learned the grand opening day fell on the same day as the Donny concert, I told the manager I had front row seats for a concert that night. Forgot to tell him about the divorce court date, but you see what was priority. So, I'll be headed down there to meet a bunch of other Old Ladies before the concert at a pizza joint nearby and will scream loudly while wearing my purple socks and Donny cap! :)

I've been adding a lot of magazines to my Web site and putting them on Ebay after I've scanned them in. Hope you'll go check them out.

Well, it's past my bedtime, so I'll sign off here. Let me hear from ya, and I'll do my best to write more often here!
