Couple of updates..

When my nephew passed 3 weeks ago, I really struggled with the decision to let my soon-to-be-ex know the tragic news. He and my nephew had a pretty close relationship. My ex and I have not spoken since he left me last May, except through lawyers. I have no way to reach him so I […]

What time is it?

Time is powerful. It helps to heal, when you are in physical pain or sad or in mourning of a loss. Sometimes it seems to go slowly, when you are excited and waiting for something. Sometimes it goes fast, like when you look back at the last year and say “where did the time go?” […]

2 little updates

I haven’t written in a while, not too much to write about. But I am back this week because of 2 things; The first is the legal process still drags on, with the other side still requesting ridiculous things. But what I have learned, per my lawyer, is that is all posturing. They are trying […]

Coping day to day

As the days, weeks and months went by, after he left, I tried to stay busy. But that wasn’t always easy. I didn’t really have any hobbies or a lot of extra money to start one. I also didn’t have the motivation to do anything either. I had a little extra to meet a friend […]
