Where was I?

I have pondered for a few days whether I should post about what life dealt me the last six months because it hasn’t been pretty and I would like to keep my blog happy and up beat. But the fact remains that this blog was/is about my life and I’ve decided that that includes even the not so pretty parts of it. I am sure many here have faced the hard parts of life too so there is no reason for me to put rose colored glasses over what you read on my blog.

In November my husband of 10 years (partner of 13 years) and I separated. Due to the circumstances surrounding the split I am the one who left Primcats House. :o( I could not bear to stay there. I’m not going to get into a lot of details about it because that won’t do anyone any good at this point but lets just say I felt our home was desecrated and in that moment I couldn’t bear to live there another day. I packed up and moved out with no intention of ever coming back. I was done. In February I sold him the house because I didn’t want anything to do with it ever again. My home, the place I built into our sanctuary was no longer mine. It was devastating.

To make a very, very, very long and unbelievably painful story short, after the anger and pain subsided some, we decided that our marriage is worth saving. We love each other very much and with love, work, prayer and faith in each other and our marriage we believe we will survive this and come out stronger on the other side.

I’ve come back home to Primcats House and hopefully someday I will be able to feel about it as I used to. In the mean time I’m just going to get back to doing what I love and that’s decorating our home in a way that invites what I want in my life… peace, serenity, love, friends, happiness and laughter. ♥♥

Blessings,

Carmen
