Today's the Day!

Since joining the SITS Community over a year ago, I have been anxiously awaiting the day I received an email saying it was my turn. Saturday the waiting ended. I was visiting Fave Cousin in Illinois when the email came in. It was last minute, but I was over the moon! Today, it is MY day!

What is SITS, you might ask? SITS is a community of over 8000 women bloggers dedicated to supporting one another through comments!


For those of you visiting Only Parent Chronicles for the first time, welcome to my little slice of sanity! Come on in! Take a look around! I love having new visitors! I hope you enjoy yourself!

Contrary to my title, this blog isn't all about parenting alone. Within this space you will find an honest approach to life in general. In addition to exploring the world of parenting solo, Only Parent Chronicles has become a journey of self-discovery, acceptance of the world around me, and a tongue in cheek approach to the things I enjoy.

Every Tuesday, you can join me and many others for Post-It Note Tuesday. This link-up allows all joiners to express their thoughts for the day in Post-Its.

Most Sundays (although I have been a slacker of late) are dedicated to my Future Ex-Husbands. You know, celebrity eye candy I would like to call my own...

I have at times attempted fiction, and I frequently discuss the trials of raising a special needs child. I have also recently defined the Ten Commandments of Me.

I truly believe there is something for everyone here at Only Parent Chronicles. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by. And if you are a first timer, I really hope to see you again!

The Lucky Wife said...

Wow, what a story. I cannot imagine going through everything you've been through and enduring it with sanity still in tact, but I do believe that God will use things in our lives for good if we will allow Him to (you alluded to not believing in God at the time, which seems to imply that you do now :) ). I hope you have a wonderful SITS day!

pdh said...

Congrats on your day!! How thrilling. I was a single parent of foster kids for a few years and would have loved to have a place to visit with insights, etc. at that time. I wasn't an only parent because all my kids had biological parents but I very much parented alone most of the time. So very glad parents have resources like this.

Sorry I missed your SITS day, I was attending the birth of my second grandchild.

I love your 10 commandments ... it's great to define your non-negotiables.

And your post about someone telling you "you're horrible" broke my heart. We raised a child with ADD and there were times when one or both of us just had to get away. I feel fortunate that we at least had each other to offer occasional relief.

I hope your SITS day was fabulous.

Sorry I am a little late in congratulating you! I was just browsing over your Future EX section...I love it!!

Have a happy Wednesday!
