    What I Learned From Being a Bonus Mom/Daddy’s Girlfriend

    I’ve been wanting to write this for awhile… ..but over the last six-plus months this topic has been sitting in my drafts section, my life and role in L’s life have changed. So instead of talking about it in the first person, I can now write about it with reflection, since I was abruptly removed from this role. In a previous post, I said goodbye to L.

    Thinking Out Loud – Musing Along

    April is moving crazy fast! Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. Sweet, short, and simple…that’s all I have for you today. Here are the random things I’d like to think aloud about today! F&$^// Eff! I know you other Bloggers can sympathize with me and my frustration. I had, what I thought, was a really cool post and ALL of a sudden…GONE! Adios! See ya NEVER! My computer was acting wonky, but I never hit the delete button! So, I’m pretty sure it’s gone forever, since I tried to recover it using various ways I found via the Internets. But unless any readers are Blogger savvy, please help a sister out!…
