Today is a new beginning. Last night he came home after drinking and I was already in bed. He tried to confront me with the normal routine. What are you doing? Staying or going? He assured me his drinking is usually provoked by someone or something but he has control. He threw in some jabs about me not trying anymore and how hard he is trying to fix the relationship, and a little jab toward my kids. I did not answer him, or even talk to him. He finally gave up and went to sleep. This morning, I left for work before he woke up. and he left for the camping trip weekend without me. I came home to a blissfully empty house... and a note.... saying that I knew where he was if I changed my mind. I pray he stays at the campground! And tomorrow, I will start packing my things to move out this weekend. I pray for the strength to do this and not look back. I pray for him not to come check on me or bombard me with texts. I pray there is peace at the other end of this journey. Thank you to all of you who have helped me and supported me.

@StillStandingMF Yes, it is sad to give her up, but I still have my real true friends who have been there my whole life. they will ALWAYS have my back. so i am fine.
I am AT my dad's, but he isn't there this week. He won't be home until this weekend. This week has been very very quiet and lonely. I am looking forward to him coming home! We will be just fine. I used to go away on his trips with him just to spend time with him. We are good.

@Bop It does take time, but you'll be so glad you did it. Someone brought up writing in a journal on another thread and it helped them remember why they left on the days doubt tried to sneak in. That method helped me, too. Also, don't allow people who haven't been through this to tell you that you should just move on or get over it. Unfortunately, unless someone has experienced it, they won't understand (even if they have the best intentions). Try the "Let's Talk" or "Dad Surviving Divorce" YouTube channels. They have a ton of great videos on them.
