Your domain

January 31, 2011

The house is just ours now. So, we’ve had to fill some missing holes. While I have been just trying to make it through each day without dropping a ball, my mother has been around. She’s been helping me to transition the house to just Benjamin and I’s. So, armed with my debit card, I [...]

Keeping busy.

January 27, 2011

Busy is good when your life has changed so dramatically. I feel numb now. The shock has worn off and Benjamin and I are trucking along like we were before John came into our lives. I have found that taking out the trash alone, warming up the car in the morning and even sleeping in [...]

Here Kitty, Kitty

January 20, 2011

Benjamin is requesting a kitty. I want to oblige him. Even though I know we would have to name it Rebound. Still… a cute little kitten can’t hurt anyone.

Disciplining solo is without a doubt one of the hardest things to master as a single mom (if you ever do). I, for one, have yet to do so–but the older he gets, the easier it gets and when things started getting a little rough before Christmas I created a star chart in the nook. [...]

A very good question.

January 10, 2011

Had to pull out this fantastic comment from Sara to my last post. “Does it bother you that John is probably reading all this right now? That’s the first thing I thought of when I read your post about the break up. Do you sometimes find yourself writing things in these past few posts for [...]

From Break Up Land

January 6, 2011

The one thing I absolutely love about owning a Web design, SEO and Social Media business is the variety of people I meet and interact with every day. First, there are the three guys in my office. Their humor throughout this entire thing has been incredible and I don’t feel alone in the least. However, [...]

The aftermath.

January 2, 2011

It has been 9 days now. During each I have remained completely composed in front of Benjamin. I have been calm, engaged and present to play with him, talk to him and just be with him. Tomorrow it’s back to school and work. To our new reality. After I write this post I’ll be writing [...]
