What would you do to support your child?    What would you do to avoid supporting your child?   Let me tell you a little “story”.   The x, I believe chooses not to work. It appears to be to much effort for him to work. We’ve been divorced for almost 14 years. In that […]

Have you ever met someone who had the perfect house, the perfect car, dressed nice, not to the 9s, but nice, every day? Things appeared just right! I’ve known many people like this. I’ve even lived with people like this. I was becoming one of them. It’s scary to think that. Luckily I can say […]

December 25, 2007

along with my baby girl. Visitation sucks. If the x can’t be a responsible person, a positive influence in her life, why does he get to have her at all? I know the answers, but that does not mean I have to like them, or even agree with them. My baby (I know she’s not […]

Sunday Scribblings – Dance

December 16, 2007

Sunday Scribblings has become so much fun, I’m really looking forward to it each week. This weeks theme is dance….  For so long we’d tried to work things out.

Healthy Love Relationship…

December 2, 2007

What would it look like? With all the talk about creating your own destiny, I’ve gotten to thinking about what my ideal relationship would look like.   Sharing the good and bad supporting each other knowing I have a date for an important event (even if it is just snuggling on the couch) having that special someone […]
