Big News

My ex-husband is getting married.
He had the decency to e-mail me and let me know. I'm truly happy for him; I really do like his fiancee. (I know you can't see my face. I'm not smirking.)
The timing is just a bit awkward. I broke up with my on-again, off-again boyfriend on Sunday. He said he's just not "the marrying type."
The most important question in my mind is, will he move to Brooklyn (where she lives) or will she move out here? If they are in Brooklyn, the childcare arrangement will be altered. If they are the next town over, I may run into them more often. It will be odd to have The Stepmother of My Son living two miles away.
But on the bright side (as a second ex-boyfriend pointed out) if they live nearby, I can drive by the house and see her mowing the lawn. The ex was never much for yardwork.

Become a Millionaire in 17 Tears

What was a typo (meant to type years) might make sense, left as is.
Yesterday I met with a financial advisor, who assured me that it was possible to (a) get out of debt in three years, and (b) to build wealth to the point that I have a million dollars net worth by age 50.
I was incredulous, even though I've spent years studying how to do this. The question is, can I focus my energies over the long haul and make this happen?
