As you may recall, last year my sister moved out of my house and soon after that my mother passed away. The time has come to reveal the third event that made 2019 even more stressful.
I filed for divorce.
I am one of those women who let the man take care of all the finances. This was a serious mistake. I can’t discuss the legal fine points here. Let me just say my husband has made a number of questionable decisions and went to some lengths to conceal them. As a writer I don’t make a lot of money. The royalties I do have coming in don’t amount to a lot, a fact painfully clear when I put together all my income tax information. Last year was hard on me emotionally and financially.
Lawyers cost money, especially divorce lawyers. With that in mind, I have organized a GoFundMe. I’ve found a lawyer who will protect my interests and those of my sons. We need someone who will keep us safe against spite, vengeance, and legal maneuvering.
Please. Any donation will help me protect my boys and build a better life.

Hello again. Here I am, back from my extended absence.
I can’t recall the last time I was so happy to see a year end. 2019 was hell with a side of chaos. Lots of people were saying that, and I don’t blame them a bit.
Unfortunately, 2020 isn’t turning out to be all that wonderful, either.
For those of you who are just joining us, a quick recap:
Last June I lost my mother.
November saw me having emergency surgery to remove my gall bladder.
The holidays were profoundly depressing.
I’m still here, still fighting the good fight for my own sake and the health and well-being of my sons. Michael is medically fragile. This means he’s in serious danger if the coronavirus gets to him. John is picking up on all the stress and having his own struggles.
I apologize for this being rather bare bones. I wanted to get something up so you’d know I haven’t vanished off the face of the earth.
The A to Z Blog Challenge is coming in April, so I hope to resume regular posting then.
Thanks for hanging in there with me.
