I am both nervous and excited by this adventure of a blog. I have been reading so many blogs for so many years that I am thrilled to join the 'club.' I am also nervous as I cannot hope to compare to my favorite writers. I have witnessed so many women's lives changed through blogging that I want to be a part of the magic. I have culled so much advice from the people (men AND women) I read about daily, that I hope to give a little back.

My husband and I are going through a pretty serious rough patch. We have known each other for 15 years, and been married for almost 12. We have four fantastic, if trying, children. I hope not to let my troubles affect them too much. I have never been impressed with spouses that threaten divorce at signs of trouble, but in my heart I have been debating whether this is the right choice for us. I hope to use this blog to sort out my feelings, and even some facts. I don't want it to turn into a 'hateful' space.

I am wavering over how much detail to share, as I want to keep this blog private from my family and acquaintances. There are many identifying details in my situation, and until my husband and I decide which course of action to take, I don't want anyone getting advance notice. So, my degree of revealing information about my family will vary depending on my mood, I suppose. As I have researched my options, I have not been able to find a blog that details (with good reason) a wife or family going through the process. I hope to publish my process here, and hopefully someone will find it useful, and maybe I can get some advice from you all, too.

I never dreamed I would split up my family, and in the end, maybe it won't come to that. I hope I can work through the issues here and build a family that most benefits us all. Welcome to my life.....

Coming Soon

This blog will be an experiment for me, and will hopefully help me get my thoughts together in one place. I look forward to chatting with you all!
