My Destination is No Longer Set by the Way the Wind Blows

I was struck today by a thought.  We’re still renovating (painting) the new condo. Hubs and I have been working fairly effectively together. I’m doing the middle of the walls and he’s doing the detail work. We turned on some music, poured out the paint, and just got it done. The way we work in Read More

From "I Do" To "I Don’t," Do You Know Who’s to Blame?

One of the things about becoming single again that can either be a good or a bad thing: you have a lot of time to think. Especially when the kids aren’t home. While there are certainly those who use their time to think about revenge, I spent a lot of that time engaged in self-reflection. Read More

It Gets Better, It Really Does

As I was dropping Bae at his school this morning, I stopped in with him at the dry cleaners with a large bag (my annual dress cleaning). The woman behind the counter started to enter my clothes and suggested I could pop Bae to his school (next door) and then come back to retrieve my Read More

I Refused to Say I Love You Because I Didn't Mean It

I Refused to Say I Love You Because I Didn’t Mean It

The process of falling in (or out) of love with someone can be very complicated. The movies make it all about that one moment where two people’s eyes meet across a room and there’s an instant connection. I’ve found that in practice, this is rarely true—and it certainly never has been in my case. I Read More

I Believe in Magic, Because I Believe in Love

I’m not one to rush into things, but once Hubs and I decided to get married, neither of us thought that there was any reason to wait. We’d been spending all our time together prior to the accident, and after, he moved in and took care of me. It wasn’t the ideal way to for Read More

Flu Season is Coming: Beware the Bugs!

Flu Season is Coming: Beware the Bugs!

The good thing about becoming a mother to an infant is that you get to grow into each illness together. Every bug that comes home with your child has about a 90% chance of infecting you as well. You might recall I wrote about the “fun” daycare bugs. I know what you’re thinking, doesn’t sound Read More

#NaBloPoMo – A Life Well Lived

Today’s a bit more serious topic…have you ever wondered what would be said about you after you died? I would hope that if someone was reading my eulogy, they would have known me well. And I hope that some of what I say below is what they would say: Liv was a woman with a Read More

Why Relationships are Like Buying A New House

Why Relationships are Like Buying A New House

There’s just something about buying a new house. You might decide to go with the basic model – or you can upgrade all your finishes and get marble counters, hardwood floors and inset lighting. You’ll end up with all new appliances. And, when you move in, everything is fresh and clean and ready to go Read More

What is a “Perfect Marriage”?

On several occasions since my divorce, I’ve met new people (like the kids’ friends’ parents) who have also had the opportunity to meet my ex. If given the opportunity to get to know them a little better, I’m always asked the same question – how did you ever marry that guy? It is, of course, Read More
