Are any other divorcing people going through this?

You can’t make any long-term plans because everything is so up in the air. When you try to work toward longer-term goals they are so dependent upon outcomes that are intertwined with what other people may or may not do that results in the foreseeable future are unlikely.

It’s beginning to occur to me that I’m resenting a pressure to “go on with my life” when there are too many variables. Since I’m already challenged in knowing what I want, I’m going to tune in to what my intuition is telling me that I want. Yeah, I’ll do what I can toward making the longer term better. But what I want is simply to make Friday about Friday and Tuesday about Tuesday. Period.
