#NaBloPoMo - Gone Too Soon

Gone Too Soon

My mother grew up with an older sister and three younger brothers. I don’t think it was the easiest of childhoods. My grandfather abused and cheated on my grandmother and eventually left her for the other woman when my mother was a teenager (which, in the long run, was actually a blessing for Nan). I Read More

Do My Children Need Therapy? A Divorced Mother’s Worries

Do my children need therapy? I have to admit, this is something I’ve struggled with.  I’ve had extensive therapy since leaving their father – and it’s helped me a great deal.  I’ve been able to reflect on why I married their father, why I stayed married for almost ten years despite a broken relationship.  Why Read More

Should Your Sister be Your Best Friend?  Is She?

Should Your Sister be Your Best Friend? Is She?

There are all these quotes about sisters – and how they’re your first and only true friend.  Don’t get me wrong – if anyone hurt my sister, I’d be in their face like the overattentive perfume lady at the department store – but we’re not friends.  We never have been.  And it’s likely we never Read More

Coparenting: Splitting Expenses without Losing Your Mind

Twitter has a New Fan

I’m so very new to the Twitter community.  I’ve been on Facebook for about five years, but my real exposure to Twitter started only a few weeks ago.  My Facebook years have allowed me to stay in touch with people I would not normally have had the opportunity to.  It’s also given me entertainment and Read More
