Does it get better with time?

     The old adage is that time heals all wounds.  …  so naturally I thought the same would apply for divorce and post-divorce life, but I seem to be wrong.   While it’s been a good 5 or so years since the divorce and each of us have moved on… or have we?, I expected a certain level of respect and diplomacy but those words would be  ...

Expiration Dates

       To everything there is a season and reason… or so the saying goes.  I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while because it seems that while change is a normal and natural part of life, we aren’t always ready nor prepared for it.  Most everything in life has an expiration date, food, home goods, animals and people.  We  ...

After thinking and praying and just following my inner spirit, I decided to relaunch the sight.  Lots has happened since my last post.  I got re-married, my eldest son is in College and trying to figure out the world as a 20 year old which means indirectly he is wearing me out totally!  Let’s not exclude my completely out of his mind 14 year old  ...

The “L”  word

    The use of the L word is something that I take very seriously.  It’s a verb and not a noun.  It requires actions, feelings, emotions and more than words can say, but coupled with words … it has the makings of something AMAZING!  What is the L-word?  LOVE! For the majority of my youth and on into my adult life I didn’t believe in Love.  By  ...

Divorce Suxs..

  There are no good or bad divorces… friendly maybe, but good?…. Not so much and mines would be no exception to that rule.  What the heck is going on I’ve asked myself repeatedly over the past few weeks?  It seems we make 2 steps forward and 3 steps back.   I’m talking about the external manifestation of divorce on children.  Its  ...

my BIG Fat BLENDED family

When life hands you 6 kids…. blend them together.   I realized over this past weekend what a special family situation I have.   In my wildest dreams I wouldn’t have guessed things to turn out this way.   What I’ve learned along the way about dating people with children of any age, but specifically under the age of 18 is that you have to  ...
