I spent over a week trying to decide where to begin–what should my first post be? Do I share the abuse I escaped? The fact that I sit in my car, and just cry because I have to leave my 11 year old home alone? Do I share that that same 11 year old ran away from home the other day? Do I share that I may lose my first job in 20 years because of all this? What do I share to introduce this blog???
Where do I begin?
And then I realized, the point was to just share what is going on in my life as a single mom with a crazy ex, and two daughters who are dealing with all of it in very different ways. Then I thought, crap, I am a mess. Does anyone really want to hear that I cry every single day, want to slap myself silly, and want to scream at the top of my lungs for being such an idiot and staying with an abusive man for too many years??? Whew! Was that a run on sentence?
Did I already Begin?
Anyway, there is so much crap that you deal with as a single mom, I am pretty sure I will not run out of things to say. If I get even one reader who can relate, yay! I just need an outlet. A place to share the pain, loneliness, inadequacies, joy, and craziness of being a single mom…and free for the first time in 2 decades!
Let me Begin Again…
Hi, my name is Lara, and I am trying to figure out how to be a single mom and woman in this world at 41. I have never been alone. I was with my ex since I was 16. I am lost, lonely, and scared. But, I am also happy, free, and ready to begin again! You can read more about me here.
OK, so there is where I began. I will be sharing more soon… frequently… you may need coffee, tissues, and the ability to see the humor in the craziness! Regardless, thanks for reading!
Oh, and feel free to like my Facebook page! It is a great way to stay updated on my latest ramblings… I will share new posts there!
