Picara Baby Carriers

Tuesday, January 31, 2006


Since I've moved from the city to the country I haven't had a chance to make many friends here yet. I'm starting to meet some other moms from Sarah's preschool, but most of them have 3 kids and don't have much time. I don't know how much in common I have with them, I guess I still see myself as pretty alternative. I asked for babysitter recommendations and so far all the responses have been, "There's this great kid at my church".
Truthfully, my closest friends have been those I met online on the old AOL parenting boards. Becky, Joanne, Kim have been through it all with me and still talk to me. Which is great, considering what a train wreck I've been at certain times.

Becky and her family are coming for a visit though! I'm so excited. I've been planning things to do like a sixth grader. Then I've been unplanning them, thinking, Ummm, just let Becky and John and Ty figure out what THEY would like to do LOL. It's hard being a host when you want to show people everything about your life, your town, your history, but they might know most of it already. We should just go play minigolf instead.

I am so unbelievably excited, if you can't tell.


I'm finishing up the last papers for my divorce from Sarah's Dad. It's been over 3.5 years and about time for this to be finished. I never really thought about the process of divorce, just thought that it would happen on it's own. No such luck. I had a consult with a lawyer a few weeks ago to see if I'm doing this correctly and possibly to hand off everything to her. I found out that legally, I don't really have to give him as much visitation as I had been, which is nice. Sarah's now gone almost 2 weeks without seeing him and misses him. His cell phone is shut off so she hasn't been able to call him. He called her for the first time for a "chat" Friday night. She was tremendously excited. There's nothing like telling a 4 year old that the phone is for her.
