Thread: My Apologies
So, now I am going to be moving to Oklahoma (not far from Norman) with my son, one of our dogs, and the cats. I will not be online much before I move, but I am hoping after the move, I will have a lot more time for having fun again.
Our son does not know any of this yet, (we do not want to ruin his school year) so we can not move until this summer. My move in date so far is June 27th and we are going to have a family reunion on the 4th of July
Right now it has not hit me, at how my life is going to change, and I really don’t wanna think about it, but I am having a great time fixing up my Grandmother’s old house. Decorating it has been so much fun. The house has sat vacant for 6 years, so there is a lot of work to be done, and I won't have rent or a house payment either. I am actually kinda excited to be moving in to the house that my dad grew up in. I have lots of family there, or close by. I get to start a new chapter in my life and see where it will lead me. Although, I do not want the divorce, I am trying to find the positive of of it, and looking forward to new beginnings.

It was really a nice surprice to turn on the computer screen this morning and see that you had been in chat. I've missed you! You did bring sad news of course, but it was still good to see you.
If you want to talk you will find me here, on MSN, on e-mail and on Neopets. Will have a house to redecorate myself in s few months (Ray and I), so I am sure we can have long conversations about carpets and colours.
Not much time to type now, but I'll be in touch.
Huge hug and all my best wishes.
I’m so very sorry to hear the sad news, and I just wanted to wish you all the best with everything! Stay positive and strong, and you will persevere!
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
It sounds like your roots are strong and deep, and you are willing to let those who love you help you through this dificult time. Remember that your friends, family and your own inner strength are your best sources for comfort when things like this happen. I wish you peace, strength and hope through this ordeal. Know your friends are always near.
Lord_aragorn86 –“I’m sorry for the turn of events that your life has experienced Mellie. I remember you used to perk me up whenever I was down when on PT chat.” Thank you Aragorn, I am glad I could help cheer you up. It makes me feel really good, know that I as able to do that for you. And it put a smile on my face when I saw your post. Thank you and I love Turin’s quote. That was very sweet of you.
Amarië - “It was really a nice surprise to turn on the computer screen this morning and see that you had been in chat. I've missed you”! I have missed you too. “Will have a house to redecorate myself in s few months (Ray and I), so I am sure we can have long conversations about carpets and colors.” That sounds like fun, I am looking forward to it.
LadyFeawen – “My thoughts and prayers are with you, Mellie. *kisses and hugs* Stay strong!” Thanks LadyF, I will take all the prayers that I can get. That really means a lot to me, and I will do my best to stay strong too. Kisses and Hugs right back at you
Elfstone – “I just wanted to wish you all the best with everything! Stay positive and strong and you will persevere! “ Thanks Elfie, I am surprisingly not that worried about it. I have so much family in Oklahoma that I won’t want for anything. The place I am moving to has only 7,000 people in it and everyone I have talked to knows some member of my family. One person even remembered my dad growing up there. That was kinda cool. There is also very little crime and a great school system for Robbie.
Oloriniwasinmyyouth – “Remember that your friends, family and your own inner strength are your best sources for comfort when things like this happen. I wish you peace, strength and hope through this ordeal. Know your friends are always near.” Thank you Olorin, yes I have a great family and I think that is why I got on line last night I needed my PT friends and family as well as my real family and friends here. I think I am also realizing that I am stronger than I thought I was when this first started. I really believe I will do fine.
Grondmaster - " wish you and Frog Boy the best of everything in the future. Keep your chin up, a smile on your face, and stick your finger in the eye of adversity. " Thanks Grondy, I am sure that Frogboy and I will be ok, once he gets used to the idea of living in a different state. I think with everything I have heard here that it will be easier to keep my chin up and a smile on my face. Not sure that the Dragon would like it too much if I stuck my finger in his eye though. lol I just might get just a wee bit charred. Roasted hobbit can't be too good, can it?
Thank you for all of your wonderful comments everyone. It really brightened my day. I am really looking at this like an adventure. I like to travel and hate to stay in the same place for too long. Matthew and I have live in this house for over 6 years. It is time too move on. Perhaps this is the right time to move on in several different ways.
Congratulations on your new beginning. I hope it brings you much joy and happiness. My thoughts are with you.
Stay positive and remember the good times - even when you feel like smiting the dragon.
I am so sad that you two are breaking up, but when it had to happen I am glad it happend to you, becuase I know you and Dragon will do your best to make the breakup as painless as you can for Frogboy.
He will still have two parents who love him and won't use him as a weapon to hurt each other. And you both understand the situation the other is in. That is rare.
Oklahoma sounds like a wonderful place to start over, filled with love and support. And it is not too far for Frogboy to travel back and forth. Also having something to do to keep you from going crazy is good. You have a whole house and half a zoo to keep you occupied. (just remember to keep the cats inside for a week or more, so they get used to living there and won't run away if you let them out ).
Mellie, you deserve a man who loves you with all his heart and Dragon deserves a woman to love with all his heart. I hope with all my heart that you both will find it. You both deserve to be insanly happy and Frogboy deserves happy parents.
All my love to the three of you (+ pets).
but I did not tell everyone about the divorce to get attention
That thought never entered my mind, stop worrying and enjoy the love.
Nice to see you again Mellie, although the occasion could be more joyful.
Like Val, I've been worried about you, thinking you might've been ill.
I wish you all the best for the time that comes, you've proven yourself as a strong person,this we all know. I know you'll live through this, merry times will come your way.
If you need someone to listen, or just be a friend, you know you can turn to me.
All the best wishes for the future my dear Melliot.

(Sorry people for this, for most, meaningless post. )
I am crying because of what you said. You are so sweet. and thank you for the ecard. You are such a considerate person. I wish we could find a time to be on at the same time. I miss our late night conversations.
I think you are right, this is just a tear jerker thread. I gotta find another thread to type in that is not so senitmenal. My only problem is that I have not read Tolkien in so long, that I have nothing to add to any of the Tolkien threads, and all my Tolkien book are packed away reading to be moved to either storage or Oklahome. Right now I am only taking necessities, like pots and pans, and bathroom item a radio and tapes for music, as well as a tv and videos. lol You know the really important stuff.
Mellie, first of all: HI!!! So good to hear from you again, I was beginning to wonder what had happened to you. And though you come with sad news, I am sure you will get through it. I don't know what else to say really, everything's already been said, but I just wanted to wish you all the best for the future. Big hugs!
