The Divorcee’s Night Before Christmas

Twas the Night Before ChristmasDecember has melted before my eyes  like an icy snowball in mid-July.  I guess that’s the way it’s going to be though. Time speeds up every year, so why not make the most of each moment (even the ones that aren’t so great).

Tis the Season of memories and not all are good ones…

As we draw closer to Christmas, we may face disappointments and revisit  old ways of thinking. We may re-hash the ghosts of Christmas Past and that’s bound to dredge up unwanted emotions.  Continue reading “The Divorcee’s Night Before Christmas”

10 Tips to improve your post divorce Christmas
10 Tips to improve your Christmas post divorce, is something I think will help anyone coping with co-parenting issues over the holidays.
