Not Just Another Spoiled Child of Divorce

by Carolyn on February 22, 2010

Since I’ve organized my sidebar links, you might have noticed an interesting name to the right sitting below the ‘For ACOD’s’ heading.  Don’t let the name fool you.  This is the only other blog I’ve ever found that is specifically about divorce issues, written from the perspective of  a grown child of divorce.  Or as […]



Another View on the Stepmom’s Bill of Rights

by Carolyn on January 18, 2010

I love the work that Jacque Fletcher does on her blog “Becoming a Stepmom“.  I did an interview with her (which by the way didn’t feel like an interview at all) where she made me so comfortable that I would have told her anything.  And she has written a wonderful book entitled “The Career Girl’s […]



A Weekend Update

by Carolyn on November 7, 2009

I’m sure anyone who reads here must be thinking that I’m taking a bit of a blog-cation.  But alas, I’ve been working hard and you are about to see the fruits of my labor.  I’ve been spending many a neurotic hour on my site redesign.  I had the header designed by someone else, but there […]



The Stepfamily Letter Project

by Carolyn on October 12, 2009

Have you ever wished you could write an utterly honest letter to your father?  Stepmother?  Stepsibling?  Daughter?  Your ex husband’s wife?  Your husband?  Well, now you can do just that and post it anonymously on what I think is one of the best websites for divorced and blended families. While doing an interview a while back […]



Suburban turmoils

by Carolyn on September 8, 2009

Love that tagline! Have you ever read Lindsay Ferrier?  If you haven’t, you should.  She writes a column for the Nashville City Newspaper, maintains her blog Suburban Turmoil and has also blogged for Parents Magazine.  This lady is one busy writer.  With her being both a child of divorce and stepmother, I’m always interested to […]



Thoughts on Wednesday

by Carolyn on September 3, 2009

I know, I know, it’s Thursday.  I’m not contemplating the day of the week.  I’m thinking about Dr. Wednesday Martin Ph.D., and author of the new book Stepmonster.  Someone who I started reading almost by accident and to be honest, I wasn’t her biggest fan.  But as with most things that create an emotional response […]



Warren Harold – Alternating Weekends

by Carolyn on August 22, 2009

I love visual art.  If you’re a regular reader here, you’ve probably noticed the images that accompany each post.  It’s so important to me to find just the right one; reflecting the tone and feel of my written work.   I love photography most of all.  I’ve never been very good at taking interesting pictures and […]



I really love the website coparenting101.  It was founded by Mike and Deesha;  a divorced couple who are not only setting the standard for co-parenting but are gracious enough to share their journey through it’s trials, tribulations and successes alike on their website.  Now I have rather strong opinions about co-parenting and putting the needs […]
