********************I'm taking the next four days off from work as the date for Jamie's departure for Florida fast approaches and because of that, I have also decided to take the next few days off from blogging as well.
Today is my blog's first birthday or blogaversary (your choice of term!) and to that end I have written a "Year in Review" post which follows this post for your reading enjoyment - I hope! I've provided links to a lot of my older posts in case you weren't around for those parts of my journey and missed them or would just like to stroll with me a bit down Memory Lane. It's been a fun year and I, for one, am flabbergasted that I managed to crank out 365 posts - not counting these two!
Thursday is Jamie's 14th birthday so I'm hoping we'll be able to do something special that day though right now the most special thing I appear to be doing is restraining myself from knocking both of their heads together! It seems that the closer Jamie's leaving comes, the more she and Amanda bicker with each other and as I'm really no Super-Mom at all but just a regular Mom it's playing havoc on my already stretched-tight emotions. Trust me when I say there will be a lot of silent cursing towards the direction of Florida these next few days as I once again battle frustration at the ex for ever having put me in this position by moving out of the area. Of course, he would counter that I put myself in this position by wanting a divorce but that isn't going to stop my inner grumblings.
Other than that, nothing special is on the agenda except for housecleaning, packing, spending time with Jamie, and gnashing my teeth. I'm just going to try to take each day as it comes and see what it brings. I'm sure I shall miss you all greatly while I'm on hiatus but I promise to catch up with your blogs upon my anticipated return on Sunday.
In the meantime, everyone have a great week and think of me fondly if you think of me at all!
