Yesterday, I was in court for my divorce proceeding. It becomes final in April, but that’s a formality. My relationship of 13 years (eight of them married) is over. It was a difficult day, but I got through it with my good friend, Colleen. She provided shopping, girl talk, a very strong shoulder. The bottle of wine didn’t hurt either. (Thanks, my dear! XOXO)
I’m just trying to stay positive for the kids. Seriously, could my life be any more of a contrast right now?
Best piece of advice I got yesterday: “Try not to punch him in the face.”
Best words of wisdom: “Your life if yours again. No one can take credit for your successes (and failures).”
Never really talked about the Underlife book launch party. It was phenomenal! With all that’s going on, I needed a reason to celebrate. It was the 40th birthday party never had. Friends and family, coworkers, and fellow writers came out to support me. I must have done something right to earn such good will. Special thanks to Erin, the emcee for the evening, and host extraordinaire Colleen. Couldn’t have pulled it off without them. Check out the photos and video from the par-tay!
Looking forward to posting year-end wrap ups for the Poet Mom blog, posting books to read list, and my goals for the new year.
Bring on 2010!
