Wish Us Luck

At the end of January I moved back to NM after Russell and I separated. After about 3 or 4 weeks we knew we were going to get back together and we decided we were going to start over in a new place. That place is Oklahoma. I stayed in New Mexico for about 2 months and on March 22 I got in my van and drove it to Oklahoma and left it there at the airport. I then flew to South Carolina to help him get his stuff moved to OK. It didn't quite work out that way due to problems he had with the transmission in his truck. It really was a problem with the shop that he brought it to and they didn't know what they were doing. But that's a whole long story in itself and I'll write about that later. The plan was that I was supposed to arrive here on a weekend (which I did) and that Monday we'd leave out of here with all his stuff. Instead I've been stuck here for a month. Neither of us wanted to be here this long. I told myself I'd never live in SC again because of bad memories here. Actually it's been very difficult being here because of a situation that happened before I left but I won't get into that as it's a personal matter. We are both putting the past behind us and in an hour or so we are leaving here for good. We already brought his stuff to Oklahoma awhile back and we came back so he could give his two weeks notice at work. This past week has gone so slow! It just felt like it was dragging on and the time was never going to come when we could leave. Let me tell you I can't get out of this place fast enough. I am very happy that we are having another chance to make a life together. We are both excited but nervous at the same time about starting all over in a new place. However it's a place where we have both visited before and we both like it there. Also Russell has family there and my kids will be a lot closer than when I lived here in SC.
Well this is the story that a few of my blogger friends already know. All this time nobody here has known that I'm back here in SC and there are reasons for that. None of that matters now.
I don't know when I'll be able to write again but hopefully it will be soon. I could use some good thoughts and prayers if y'all don't mind.
Blessings :)
