When I grow up, I want to be like my daughter.
Going to dinner by yourself is weird. BUT I am a bit used to it because I used to travel frequently for work and when you do that, you get accustomed to going to dinner by yourself. And in all honesty, I enjoy it.
I had every intention to complete our adventure, which tied to the start of school, but something got in the way. I was served. With divorce papers.
God has an amazing way to remind you how rich your life really is...even when you are broke as HE double hockey sticks.
Lately it seems like every time I turn around the kids are doing something that makes me question my sanity or laugh. The choices that they've made this week have me wondering if I've taught them anything or if they just decided to turn their ears off all summer.
Last night I did something that I've never done before...or at least in the last 13 years. I slept in the middle of my bed. That may not sound like a big deal to some but to a girl getting ready to go through a divorce that she doesn't want...it was a big deal because I enjoyed every second of it and it was something that only I was able to enjoy.
I loved how this weeks' adventure started...by pure accident and prompted by the boys - kind of made me feel like I'm doing something right as a mom in creating these memories through our adventures.
And this is why I started this blog. From my observations from many friends going through the same thing, when men feel out of control of a situation, they resort to bullying.
I've always said that sometimes you only have two choices in life - to laugh or cry...and it's so much more fun to laugh!
It's easy to get sucked into yourself and the situation that is looming over you, especially if you work from home or are a stay at home mom and/or wife. When you see the same four walls every day, you forget that there is life outside of the house but having other distractions that can really help you through the rough stuff.
