“At times our lives seem like that of a tranquil island in a sea of chaos. The battle is to keep this sea of chaos at bay and not let it wash us away into utter chaos.” ~Sanjeeva Ananthan
My battle at the moment is learning how to cope as a single mother of a 17-year-old daughter. After being separated for nearly four years, her father, and my soon-to-be ex-husband moved out this past weekend, and her brother is away at college. Rory and I are starting our lives over. This prospect is exciting, invigorating, and a whole lot of scary and stressful.
I wanted to start this blog to journal my experience. My pitfalls, my triumphs, fun times, happy times, sad times, in-need-of venting times. My hope is that you will tag along in my adventure as I forge a new path.
Life With Lorelai will bring you a varietal smorgasbord of topics from the trials of the process of starting life over to my interests in writing, cooking, gardening, singing karaoke, and more. If you have any suggestions for a topic, please let me know.
I look forward to getting to know you…
