But before I do that, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone for giving such deeply thoughtful advice. To say I appreciate it is an understatement of massive proportions.

I really love this Every Woman Should list. The only thing I would change is "how to live alone... even if she doesn't like it." It should be "how to live alone... and like it." Or even "love it."
Today of all days, it feels appropriate to include this Marie Claire article on a Single Mom By Choice. What with the J-Lo and Jennifer Aniston movies, and the articles in mainstream magazines, I'm feeling very au courant, I must say.
From Rowdy Kitten, this Simple Guide to Having Fun. The more complicated our lives get, the more we need to be reminded that the simple things really are the best things.

Read away, and I'll try to make the jumble in my head into an entertaining, thought-provoking post for tomorrow.
Key word: Try.
