I spent last night with some amazing friends ~ they helped me with a minor meltdown and showed me some love. I lost it over my Sam's membership of all things...long story but I am fine now. I was very content to hang with my friends over dinner and wine (and a DVR'd episode of NCIS!). Thank you Micki and Stacey (and Alex)...love you guys :)
So Bridget and I went to the new house today ~ our plan was to finally tell the girls about us splitting. I was a little nervous about Bridget's reaction to the place, wondering if she would like it or "approve" of it. WTH? It's my place and I love it! Anyway, she liked it but hated that it had stairs. I told her that I was planning to get a couple of gates anyway.
So we spent some time at the fabulous park behind our house and let the girls run off some energy. Then we went inside and told them we wanted to talk to them. I was so nervous - I soon realized that Bridget was waiting for ME to talk, so I did. It took all of about 10 minutes and the girls were fine. I know they are young and don't understand all the details, but they know that we love them and they still have their whole family behind them.
So, now we can plan openly about the future and involve the girls...whew!
