July 10 – the day Jeffrey was driving from Santa Rosa to Vista and he decided he did not want to stop by and talk to me or see me

August 18 – the day I told my close friends via email about his decision and what steps I am taking to care for myself.
August 28 – the filing of the joint petition for a summary dissolution for Jeffrey Warren and me. Marking 2 years and 45 days.
