My Divorce: A New Kind of Motherhood

Three months ago my husband moved out.  Two months ago, I filed papers for a divorce.  One month ago, I spent any spare time in bed trying to wrap my head around the failure of my marriage.  And last week, I dragged myself up, put a smile on a my face and started to refocus.  And now that smile has become real.

I'll be honest, as I try to always be with you guys, I was not going to share this life changing experience on here.  The title 'Divorce' comes with preconceived notions, ideas…

Zaffy: Mom, Mary was mean to me 2 days ago. She was mean to me ysterday. But today she was nice.

Me: Maybe she…

Come Fly With Me

I must have done something good in a past life (I am far too cynical and selfish for it to be due to anything I've done in this one) because, THANK THE LORD, The Poop slept for around three hours of the four we were in flight. Now, before I get stuck into today's moan, hear this - I'm glad she slept. I'm grateful she slept. I understand that it could have been a damned sight worse. But.

Stef G. ~ One Inspiring WAHM

Work-at-home mothers do not equate to being isolated. Well, slightly yes :)

But being able to connect with people is still very possible. There are the various social networking sites and messengers providing voice, chat and video connections. All of these, I have utilized when I started working from home.

So aside from my current friends, I have been able to gain…

Frankincensed

I guess my way of preparing for an emergency is to blog about it – sort of like, as I’ve previously noted, my friend Cyndi’s way of coping with a crisis is to throw a party. (See “The Norsemen Cometh.”) In fact, I hope to row over to Cyndi’s house tomorrow afternoon for one of her bashes in my Hawaiian shirt and toss back a couple of stiff Hurricanes. In the meantime, I thought I’d better post an entry…

Apparently I've become a DIY Diva. AND I LOVE GLITTER.

It’s Saturday morning afternoon. And because I haven’t actually made it outside of the house or gotten a lot of work done today, I feel like a total slacker. But when I look at things in all reality, I’ve been an uber productive domestic diva. I’ve done two loads of laundry, picked up our entire house (minus my office, that’s a monster to tackle another day…), gotten an hour long barre workout in, showered, gone through half my emails, fully made the bed (for the second time…
