I'm trying to stay positive through the divorce stuff, but I'm not always successful.

Another thing I'm not successful at? Writing when I have good day. I have to do that a lot more. I have to take time out to appreciate the good days because  there are lots. 

Yup, there are some pretty big challenges for me to overcome. None too big that I won't be able to. 

Life is full of ups and downs. Fighting that won't get me anywhere.

Favorite Year

It's nearly the end of November. (Crap, I have to send mail my mom her birthday present!!). A random comment a friend said made me think about the past 11 months. 2013 as a whole. It certainly hasn't been my best year. It hasn't been my worst year either.

I had planned to continue to write about life, causeI like to and I've been doing it for over for years, but the last few months are just  toooooo different and too unpredictable. It\s very confusing, because I feel grateful, thankful, and that I live a very blessed life. I also have A LOT of laughter and good times - of course along with the regular expected moments of grief.

There is lots of good in my life, along with the less-than-good, and both seem too intimate and private to share. I check Google Analytics from time to time and see that people actually read this junk I write and it makes me uncomfortable. As far as divorce…
