I am the MOM and I was here FIRST!

I am a 44 year old mother of three children and grandmother of one. I am divorced from my children's father whom I share joint physical custody of our youngest two children with. I have been married to my fabulous husband for over 9 near-perfect years. I LOVE this man! He is a wonderful generous, affectionate, tolerant and all forgiving husband. He is also a terrific step-dad/male role model to my kids and an even better grand father to our two year old grand daughter. My oldest daughter attends college to obtain her nursing degree. She has been on her own for over three years now (no longer part of a shared custody arrangement like her brother & sister) My middle daughter is in high school and plays on the freshmen volleyball & soccer teams. She's really creative and talented. My son is in middle school and plays hockey and lacrosse. He is a sweet sensitive boy who still says "I love you Mom" frequently. I work part time running an online ebay store. I have terrific and supportive relationships with my family, friends and of course my kids. I am extremely close to my sister, my Mom and my sister-in-laws. They are my best friends.

Summer Vacation ~ Day 1

Today is Monday June 16th.

It is the first official day of my children's summer vacation.

No lunches to pack.

No 23 mile drive to the school to drop them off.

No 23 mile drive to the school to pick them up.

No after school practice, game or study session.

No homework.

My husband is working from home today.

There are 3 kids and 1 adult in the pool playing volleyball.

There are 3 more kids on their way over to swim.

There are beach towels strewn all over the deck.

Every window in the house is open.

It is a warm, breezy, mostly sunny day.

I can hear the sounds of water splashing and laughter all through the house.

Life is good!
