Moving on

Posted by jackiyo 8 Comments

The kids have been adjusting. They’re settling into their new life with mostly Mommy, they’re both doing well in school. They seem pretty happy most of the time. I haven’t heard “I wish you and Daddy were still married” for at least a month or two. They’re starting to get used to holidays being a  [ Read More ]

And easier. With September comes many changes. The nights are crisper, more of a stark difference between day and night. The days turn cooler. The leaves begin to change. School begins anew.

I have no idea where this post is headed or if it will even make much sense, but there’s something in my head that needs to come out – and out it shall come. Many of you already know. Some may not. For those who don’t know, my husband of 10 years and I are  [ Read More ]
