About Me

I am the only parent of a wonderful, loving, goofy 8-year-old son.  I work full-time outside the home, so a big part of my life is spent trying to find balance, managing my different roles and keeping all the balls up in the air!

It wasn't always this way.  I was married and thought I knew where my life was heading, but I was given a very unexpected detour:  finding out that my husband of 6 years was hiding a secret life.  He had cheated on me for most of our marriage, was a sex addict and a pedophile.

This blog is a place where I have shared my story in the hope that other women who find themselves in similar situations will know that they are not alone.  It is also a place where I can share the joys and challenges of being an only parent and find support from others.

Here is the story of how I got here:

Part One:  The One
Part Two:  Marriage, Family, Love & Life
Part Three:  The Day My World Turned Upside Down
Part Four:  The Next Four Months
Part Five:  No One Gets Married, Planning to get Divorced, Except Maybe Larry King
Addendum:  Just When You Thought it was Over
