#MyNewLife Series

Getting a Grip

I never expected to be a separated mom of three at forty.

I expected the gray hairs and the extra pounds. I however never expected our family parties to have one additional member in the form of my ex-husband’s new girl.

The only good thing is that I have a new buddy called Greg, who loves my eyes.

Other than being attractive, he makes my heart skip a beat.

He is flirting with me, although I’m not too sure since it’s been quite a while.

But I’m gradually getting my life together.

Perhaps I could even find love in the process.
