My name is Betsy I am 33 years old
I am a Funeral Director (Yes I do everything and Yes I love it) No it is not the job that most people chose but someone has to do it and I am happy and proud to say that I do.
I have lost an extreme amount of weight over the last 2 years, when the journey began I weighed 440lbs I am now 183lbs, for the math challenged I have lost 257lbs, so I have lost more than the average person weighs. This was NOT done with weight loss surgery, not that I look bad on thoe who chose that option, I just chose to eat less and work out a lot more. Different things work for different people! :-)
I am married, not happily and I am in the process of laying the ground work to leave, there are factors that need to be taken care of before that plan can be executed correctly. My husband is not a bad man, but certain things have come to light over the last year or so that make it very clear that a lifetime of happiness will not occur. I am not capable of being the person he needs or wants I am sure that story will come out with time.
I am dating another man, he is also going through a divorce and the relationship is extremely challenging at times because of a variety of circumstances again stories that I am sure will come out with time.
This blog will be my chance, to vent about the process of leaving my husband, the challenges around me and the new man, a chance to vent and rant about my job and the maddness that people don't realize come along with being a funeral director. Those stories will always be told with respect to the families that I help serve everyday but some stories should be shared, from the man who marrried two women, or the person who was relieved of their shot gun before I removed them from their house.
So this will bounce around from stories about work, the trials and hardship of going through a divorce and figuring out what will happen with the new man as time progresses. I am sure there will be other things but those would be the major topics and things going on in my life and there are times I am certain it is more than enough!
