Divorce: Writing and My Recovery

“I want a divorce.” The sentence I was afraid of was coming finally came from his mouth. It felt like a ton of bricks and an ache in my stomach. I felt like I was in a movie where the camera zooms out and shows you like an ant.

Splitting the Holidays

When you go through a divorce it is inevitable that you will split everything.  That includes time with your children if you have them.  Every other weekend isn’t that bad.  It was in the beginning.  Believe me, it took a while for me to get used to it.  But having a nice quiet weekend every once in a while is actually nice.  Weekends I can handle.  Summers around here get pretty lonely.  My youngest daughter, Bee, her dad gets her half the summer.  We split it, alternating weeks.  So most of the summer it’s just me and my oldest daughter, Bug.  We miss Bee a lot when she is gone.
