I’m not going to lie and pretend that there is no drama and couples can remain civil, although I’m sure in some alternate universes, they actually can. But in general, divorce might as well stand for
Or something like that… just go with that.
But that doesn’t mean there isn’t humor to be had in this situation! The fact is that picking up the pieces is never easy, but it’s how you view it that makes all the difference. As for me? Let’s just say that being funny in difficult situations comes naturally for the Young family. That’s why when one of us is in a medical crisis, we seem to have the party room at the hospital.
The reason that La Divorcee Vita was created was not to mope and go “Woe is me.” We will have some of it, because divorce does come with a heaping salt lick. But the truth was it was created to discover the steps to moving on, the humor in learning everything all over again, and the bravery to not fall into the deep dark recesses of our minds.
So be prepared: Over the life of this blog, you will be hearing stories about the boys I’ve dated and the mayhem that ensued from them, the weight I’ve lost, the obstacles I have faced, and all the laughter that has come with it. Some of it will be NSFW, some of it will be worth sharing with your mom. Hell, my mom’s gonna see this. I don’t see why your mom can’t.
Needless to say, you have been warned.
