The Fight Begins

We got home and I read through the papers.  It seems that Liam changed his mind and decided to stay with Bubba.  He’d signed a paper stating his preference.  He was old enough to do this and he’d done it. I felt sick.  I’d told Liam that I’d take care of it and fix it …

The Phone Call

Serenity called me in near panic.  She’d been sleeping and heard someone banging on the front door.  Since she was home alone, she looked out the window upstairs to see if she could see who was at the door.  To her surprise she saw a couple of cop cars in front of our house.  She …

Honeymoon

Treun decided to take me to what used to be my hometown for our honeymoon.  He knew I wanted to go see my grandmother and an elderly cousin so he thought this would be a perfect time to go.  We could also drive just a bit further and see Endellion!  It would be the perfect …

Moving

Oh. My. Goodness!  How do four people accumulate so much stuff?  I’ve given myself a month to get moved into our new home.  I don’t think it’s going to be long enough.  Seriously.  Really.  So much stuff. Now that the boys are gone, I can get busy.  Since I’d resigned from one job and was …

Life with Liam has been getting progressively worse.  He is becoming more angry and volatile as the days go by.  He is failing two classes in school and three of his teachers have been in contact with me about his grades and attitude in class.  Apparently, the meds he is taking for the depression are …

Serenity Graduates!

A week after the wedding, Serenity graduated from high school.  There were times that I wondered if we’d ever see this day.  Serenity is a very smart girl but her anxiety is almost crippling at times.  Essays were nightmares for her.  Her senior research paper had me ripping my hair out.  It got to the …

The Wedding!

The day had finally arrived.  Treun and I were getting married!  Our wedding day dawned warm and clear.  It was sunny and beautiful and I was up at an ungodly hour because I was too excited to sleep.  The plan was to arrive at Treun’s house around 9 am so that we could all get …

Preparing for the Ceremony

God and I have been on very shaky terms for quite awhile now.  I’d gotten sucked into Fundamentalist Christianity the last few years of my marriage and when I left, I had to refind my faith away from the dogma I was fed there.  Between the “mature” women in my church, my pastor, and Nancy, …

The Guest List Diminishes By Two

The last minute plans were all set.  The Mexican restaurant was available to cater on our new date.  The baker also had the day open.  Our rings came in and were even more gorgeous than we thought they’d be.  My bouquet and Treun’s boutonniere arrived.  We had just a few more days until the wedding. …
