Hello my name is Carrie and I have two wonderful children.  Devin, my son, is 17 years old and my daughter, Megan is 11 years old.  I am recently divorced after 13 years and am now 36 years old starting over.  I live in Arizona and after giving my relationship my all and focusing solely on my ex-husband and children and am excited to start building some friendships and support.  And yes, I am up at 11:00 p.m. typing this as it is my weekend alone and I am wondering what I am going to do with my time and who the heck I am.

Welcome to the group, Carrie.

I'm Jamie, mom of 8 from Ohio. I have a daughter the same age as Devin.

How are you doing after your divorce? How are your children doing? What kind of interests do you all have?

Hi! I'm divorced and remarried. I was 37 when my exH left and I had 2 small kids. Looking back I wish that I had given myself a year to just be sad and to heal. Instead I started dating, sold and bought a house and had a serious relationship.

They say to try and not make any big decisions on the first year, it's good advice.

Thank you Ladies for all of the kind words.  I am glad I am not alone in this.  It feels good to finally be able to open up and talk about issues in my life, good and bad, and have other women relate.
