When last I left this little blog I had just moved into my new home. Well here it is 5 months later and I love it. My divorce was final in May. I have finally put pictures up on the wall which kind of felt like putting the icing on the cake.

I have taken on a full-time position where I work. It has been an adjustment but I think I have learned how to balance the family/work thing fairly well.

My youngest daughter is doing great. She has adjusted to the divorce and new home very well. She has a lot of friends and loves that they are now able to come over to the house, spend the night and just be kids.

My oldest daughter is still living with her boyfriend. They are expecting a little girl. Yes, they are making me a grandmother. My youngest and I have nicknamed her Big Bird. Big Bird will be making her big debut here in about a month.

So in the past year I have gone from a married mother of two to a divorced women, single mother, a full-time employee and a soon to be grandmother. Wow, talk about a major transformation!

  1. I’m so glad you’re back. I love it when you blog with us. We really miss you. I miss the whole old gang actually. Anyway, I was so happy to see you.

    Change is really hard but you’ve come through like a real trooper. Just wait till Big Bird gets here. You think you love your kids? It’s a better feeling than that. It’s so hard to explain but you’ll see. Way to go JAM.

    • Thanks Joy. Actually I already think I know what you mean about the love for your Grandkids. This time I get to sit back and enjoy!

    • It’s so much more fun. It’s relaxing and so rewarding. I had such a wonderful grandma that it’s always in my head that I want my grandchildren to remember me in the same way. That when they think of me when they’re our age, they can still feel the love or remember me in some way that will make them smile. Believe me, it’s hard sometimes but I just LOVE it.
