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.

Sarcastic Laptops

"Yeah, you get up at 6am on Saturday cause then I'll just be getting up at noon, then we can like, totally skype each other and make perogies together! omg! or not.." Nothing like a snotty response from a 16 year old on my Skype idea. Can you hear the sarcasm pouring out of her laptop? This is why sending her to France was a good idea.

Rebel is busy visiting her BF. She misses him. That's to be expected. For now she's going to his place on the weekend. I hope she weans herself off him - slowlee- slowlee but I am not going to say much.
Rebel and I are spending Easter at a friend's place. This is good. XSU was never big on Easter. Not being of a spiritual bent of any kind he didn't understand my joy on the holiday or my keen sense of Easter being such a wonderful Sunday quiet kind of holiday. I think the last few years, he'd go off and start doing construction stuff, which I regularly kyboshed. It was so incredibly disrespectful and rude.
None of that this year. At least not at my house.

Rebel didn't even plan on spending time with him. Her remark was " Easter is a religious thing. Dad doesn't ever go to church so why would I bother celebrating a holiday with him that he doesn't celebrate. C'mon now mum!"

I've been marking assignments for the last 5 days, and am now counting down to the finals next week.
Yippee Nearly done. These students have produced some amazing products. I should have had them do half my work for me. Next year!

I am so glad to read that your daughter's have subliminally picked up on all of your hard work and efforts to give them stability, traditions, family and religious strengths.


sometimes if just takes some time for "love" to shine through.

Gotta love 16 year olds and their sarcasm, eh? *sigh*

Here is hoping that Miss Rebel does indeed wean herself off the slacker. She can do so much better than him. Where is her little dog, btw?

How wonderful that Rebel has chosen to spend Easter with you rather than not. I like. I like!

Your class is almost done. How did you like teaching? Game for another go round?

Remember to take time to bask in the peace and quiet that is now your home.

love and hugs,
