Kats Story Continued
Kats Story Continued
It has been awhile since I posted anything about me, so I am continuing that story today. If you care to read the other parts they are on page 2 and 3.
I am going to jump a lot of years. Nothing changed to much. I existed is what I did. I raised my son. I worked at a job I loved with the school district in my area.
I had to go back to work. I didn't want to, but we needed extra money so I did find a part time job at a local elementary school. I look back and think that that was when I really started to grow up and change. I was out meeting people every day, I had a job where the security of the children at school was a major factor. I had to deal with the teachers and all their quirks. I had to put up with angry parents. So I grew inside. I became confident the longer I worked there. I was at that school for 13 years and by the time I left it to find a full time job I was pretty much on my way to being a whole person unto myself.
My next job took me to a thrift store. A very big one that has places all over the country. The work was hard and physical and I had to deal with people every day. All sorts of people, all different nationalities.
I grew more and more and became very dissatisfied with my marriage. I saw how other husbands and wives acted towards each other and I started to want what I was seeing. So this was the time that I thought my first thoughts of divorcing my husband. Just thought. Never acted on it.
My husband saw the changes in me, saw me moving away from him, and for the first time in our marriage realized he was loosing control and didn't know what to do about it. Did he fight back, of course he did, his same way, but it didn't matter to me anymore. I realized that I was special. I had people skills and that I was well liked by a large cross section of people. But I still had doubts about myself. I still didn't think I could attract another man into my life. I didn't want to be alone for the rest of my life, so I stayed. But I was still looking. I was still watching and seeing what was going on around me.
At this job I met my future renter. It is funny or not so funny how many curves your life takes.
Take care everyone
