I didn't get married until I was 32, had my son, Nick at age 36 and my daughter, Lauren at 38. After 12 years of marriage, my ex found a 20 year-old in a "gentlemen's club", started buying her stuff on our credit cards and withdrawing money from our account. After a Jerry Springer worthy separation and divorce, I took my children and moved to North Carolina, where my brother and his family live. Oh the stories I could tell!
My 23 year-old son lives in Atlanta with his boyfriend of 5 years and my 21 year-old daughter goes to a private college in Raleigh. They are my best friends.
I see funny in everything, maybe as a coping mechanism, or maybe because life is hilarious...
