I know that I am a bit late in the game to post about the new year. Hello! It’s almost February. Whatever, Heather. I have a lot rattling around in the ole noggin to share with you, so here we go!
I’m a single mom (again). William and I parted ways the weekend between my birthday and Thanksgiving. Not too much to say about that. I miss Flora terribly the evenings and weekends that she is away with him. Sometimes I miss having someone here to help with parenting, like when I am trying to get ready for work and Flora won’t eat her toast and I have exactly two minutes left to shower. We are striving to coparent peacefully and shared the holidays and her birthday amicably. Ultimately, things are much calmer on the homefront this way.
To quote Forrest Gump, “that’s all I have to say about that.”
From this point forward, I’m just going to do me here and utilize this blog to publish personal essays and share recipes and photos that I like. I had gotten so into “blogging” (you know what I mean) for a while there that I felt like I had to spit out “content” regularly. Some of it was crap. I apologize. I suck at doing this in a structured manner with cutesy themed days. Not putting down people who are good at that, just not into it myself. I’ll also be rebooting my YouTube channel in a similar manner.
On a final note, I finally came up with my list of intentions and resolutions for the year a couple of days ago. Not one of them involved romantic relationships! I am so proud of myself for that. As someone who had some major codependency issues in the past, it is a huge thing for me to actually be happy and comfortable being alone. I’ll share the rest of them in my next post, because this is becoming a novel!
Before I go, here are a few photos from our snowday yesterday:
