Over the past few months, I have eluded to some big changes happening in the Sweetnicks’ household. There’s been much going on behind the scenes — and I am not just talking about a fury of cooking. We’ve been simplifying and feeling our way along a new path. I’ve been packing for a big move that the kids and I are very excited about. This weekend, we will unpack in our new home, ready to begin the next chapter of our journey. I can’t wait …
You might have noticed that The Husband wasn’t mentioned above, and you may have even noticed that he hasn’t been mentioned much in the recent months. That’s because he won’t be making this big move with us. Sometimes, things just don’t work out as we plan or hope and that is the case with our marriage. Earlier this year, we separated.
Regardless of our marital status, The Husband and I remain committed in a common goal: to make our children’s lives as happy, fun and rewarding as possible. He is still every bit a part of the kids’ lives, and sees them often. It’s been a hard transition, but this move will help us in the next stage of our lives.
I’ve held off on talking about this, because I didn’t know what to say or how to say it. It’s been like the pink elephant in my kitchen. But I also wanted to get it out in the open for all of my loyal readers so I don’t have to avoid the topic — after all, cooking as a single mom is an adventure all its own!
