The kids are tucked in their beds (miracles do happen) and I've spent some of the quiet time reflecting on what has been a very wild ride for the hubs, for me and for our family.
Here is what it is. We settled our civil suit as mentioned in my previous post. I shalln't disclose the amount, but let's say the check had a LOT of zeroes in it. Before the decimal point. And now we get to start all over saving for our three kids' college. I'm happy I don't have to spend one single day of the new year worrying, living in fear and especially not living in anger anymore. Sure I'm a little bitter, but having a ten thousand pound weight lifted off our shoulders has made me a whole new woman. Hubs and I are finally able to feel some real happiness again. It's a little easier to get out of bed and face a new day and our good times together are no longer overshadowed.
I'm hoping everyone else has a wonderful New Year's Eve and a happy 2012. From our family to yours!!
