We're hanging in. The kids haven't asked for their dad. The first day they wanted to know why we had to leave. I told them it's because their dad needs help with his anger so he won't scream at us anymore. They accepted it. After he threatened me yesterday about calling the police on me, I called my lawyer. She is going in to get a custody order and temp. possession of the vehicle. I did give my husband the opportunity over the cell phone to agree to move out and let the kids have their home while be gets help. The other option is that we don't come back. He chose to threaten instead and insist that he doesn't have a problem. I guess that I know his choice. My cell phone is turned off. I won't be taking his calls (as per lawyer instruction). I did get a voice mail asking if I had sent a check to the mechanic for his vehicle. The night before the message was to pick up apples and garbage bags. A friend has located a shelter in another county that is run by nuns. They have therapy for all of us and food and lodging is free. I think that we will be heading there. Being in a small area, I am always looking over my shoulder to see if husband or his family/friends are there. Very stressful. If we go there, then my lawyer can do her job and we can have some peace while my friends will be looking for a home for us. In the meantime, safety first. Thank you all for your love, prayers and support. It means the world to me. Especially now when the world seems so big and I, sometimes, feel so alone.
