I reached the summit!!!!

I cannot tell you how happy I am. Well, I am crying if that counts. No more school, no more remodeling, cleaning up from floods, no more preparing for court (bankruptcy and divorce), or selling houses, or moving, or even incredibly hard work projects (that take me months to do; our "turn" is over for five years). I am there. It was the longest, hardest 2 years and 4 days of my life. And all y'all got me there. Some days were harder than others, but now I am normal again. Whatever that means, but normal for me. I am so happy. It's easy coasting from here on out. There will be stressful things, but surely it'll never be this bad ever again. I get to move slowly and even wear ironed clothes with matching shoes to work.

Thank you my Lovely Revers for revving me up, keeping me going, and encouraging me. I needed it!

Make sure you take the time to breathe deeply, look around you, and say to yourself "I did this!" - you've brought yourself to where you want to be. Congratulations, and make sure you take the time to savour it!

(And, from my own experience, when/if things ever get tough in future, you'll find yourself muttering "I did THAT, so I can easily do THIS").

Congratulations! You are a incredibly resourceful and strong lady. With your determination you can do anything.
Enjoy your top of the hill for a while before you tackle something else. For some reason I can't see you sitting and twittling your thumbs for any lenght of time.

Robin,I'm so glad you and LF made it through the tunnel and that now you can wake up in the morning without all the niggling stuff on your mind.How are things going in your new place of residence? It sounded like the perfect set up to me.

Aw, Robin, we knew you could do it, but we also all realized how hard and long a road it's been. Congratulations! I'm so very happy you have those particular humps behind you. You and LF deserve this chance to breathe freely. Darn girl, ya made me tear up. Smiles. Proud of you.
