Furniture Trading

I have an idea, I should start a furniture trading club for divorced people! I can’t afford to throw out all my furniture and buy new ones, but I would love to change with someone. I’m sure that it is a common problem after divorce. People divide their belongings (or in my case, is left with …

Deciding to be HAPPY!

I’ve made the decision, again, to be happy!!! I know that I’m the only one that can make me happy, I’ve known that for a long time. If you ask people who know me, they would say that I’m a very happy person (at least up until one year ago), who has a very positive …

Not Fine

Most days I can pretend things are great, other days when I look at what I’ve done and what I’ve said, I come to the realization that I’m really not fine. One of my friends, J, came over today with her kids and while the kids were busy swimming (more under than above water) we sat …

DVR

I don’t know what I would do without my DVR, I like choosing when to watch what I want to watch. And not having to choose between two shows!!! Last night was a typical example. Syfy’s Alphas and TNT’s Perception was on at the same time, these are two of the only shows worth watching this …

Weekend Again

Most people look forward to weekends, it’s the time to enjoy your family and get time off from work. I used to be one of them, now it depends. It depends mainly on if I have plans or not. Last night I did go out with some people who I had met through meetup.com, a …

Pictures On My Wall

I envy the divorced women with no kids, who can try to completely remove the former spouse from their lives. I have to say that sounds wonderful!!! When you have kids you don’t have that luxury.  I’m not saying that it isn’t hard to divorce when you don’t have kids, not at all, divorce sucks no matter what. But when …

My Garden

While I was out watering I took the time to take some pictures. I love growing things, it tastes so much better and I find that my kids like eating things straight out of the garden. First off are my beets, ready to pick! I love them with goat cheese.             …

Quiet

The house is so quiet when the girls aren’t here! I dropped them of at their camp, they go 3 days a week for 3 hours up at the school. My youngest is starting Kindergarten so I thought it would be good to send her to the Kindergarten camp so that she’s been in the …
