Halloween 2016

 A Detective, French toast, and Minnie mouse (and her baby)


Our costume plans evolved a lot over the last month or so. Mostly because (as much as I fought it) the kids were/are in charge. We had a group/theme costume I was really excited for, but then Fox just came up to me one day and announced that he wanted to be "a 'tective with a mag-fying glass." So that was that.

His costume wasn't too difficult to make (I used these directions), but Sloane got really sick during my appointed "costume-making-time", so she ended up with a store-bought Minnie costume -which we were all perfectly fine with. It's way cuter than what I could've made, for sure. And she requests to wear it everyday:)

We went trick-or-treating in my parent's neighborhood, and the kids were done after two streets (just like last year) ha! They still ended up with A TON of treats, though. Not many kids went trick-or-treating in the neighborhood this year, so everyone gave Fox and Sloane extra-large helpings of candy (which I am helping take care as I type). And yes, Sloane brought her baby with her the whole time we trick-or-treated. How was your Halloween?

Aftermath of the Divorce Post



Writing my most recent post was a lot harder than probably any other post I've written. Not only was I worried about reactions to the news, but that perhaps I wouldn't express my thoughts accurately enough -that my words would be misunderstood.

Now that my words and story are out there, all I can say is thank you. Thank you for the warm embrace I felt after exposing a very personal and difficult part of my life. I have felt nothing but kindness and love from each comment/hug/chat/drop-by/message (whether from someone I know or anonymous). I mentioned in the post that I'm doing much better than I thought I would, but of course all of this is still very hard. So, again, thank you so so much. Can I just take you all out for donuts?

Also, something I really didn't expect, I have received a few private messages from people going through somewhat-similar situations asking for advice. I feel incredibly unqualified in this department. I'm totally fine discussing what some of our struggles were, but please keep in mind, every relationship is unique. Something that was incredibly hard for us to overcome may not pertain to someone else's relationship (does that make sense?). On a related note, if you're having a hard time and just want to talk, I'm all for chatting:)
