Moving on .
I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.

It's the weekend. Thank goodness. The girls are going to XSU's place and he has promised me that they will be at home at a reasonable hour and there will be no sleepovers anywhere.
I told him that Frenchy is looking for a some touring around Ottawa, and of course he says to me - let me know what tours are out there. I roll my eyes and think "you're such a hot shot researcher on the Internet you can't find the tour companies and get the info yourself?!?" So I sent him some links and I hope he forks out some time and money on the girls.
I will be glad to have the place to myself and enjoy some quiet as I pull together the house and move stuff back to the basement or out to the garage.
I found a tiny tear in my new chair in the living room. Right on a seam. I am waiting for phone call so it can be fixed. I also realized my fridge was making a ton of noise because the non-existent ice maker in the freezer was trying to make ice and I am not interested in connecting the fridge to a water source. One more thing that could go wrong, so I managed to figure out how to turn the ice maker to OFF.
One thing I can't figure out is how to get a burnt out light bulb out of the fixture in my kitchen. Seriously. I mean I can't pull it out, it doesn't screw out and I see no way to get this thing out so I can take it to the store and replace it. Luckily HH tells me he wants to drop by on Sunday to finish up a couple of little things so I will get him to show me what the deal is with the damn thing.
It's not the big stuff that gets you frustrated or down when you're on your own, it's the stupid little things that you aren't even aware of til you need to be.
