Where has Leighla been?

I used to keep up with her blog on here- but I haven't looked in awhile because I haven't seen her posting.

Anyone know her IRL?

Hope she's well!

Re: Where has Leighla been?

Hi! Thanks Barb, for letting me know.

I'm not around LIF very much anymore, but I'm doing well.

Moved to PA about a year ago. Decided that living in our dream house without DH, having a job where DH had worked three doors down the hall and just northern NJ in general weren't healthy for me anymore.

I took a job in a small town outside of Philly, closer to my family and in a much better area as far as quality of life goes. (So much cheaper!!)

I took a step down in my career to better even out my work/life balance being a single mom. But about 5 weeks after I started here was a restructure and they promoted me (with my blessing) and I still have the work/life balance with a bigger paycheck so the work front has been very good. It's an incredible company and they have been amazing to me and Logan.

My dad comes up once a week to give me a night or two off, he also does all my housekeeping, laundry and lawn care. I pay him, but it's a sweet deal!

I'm dating, badly. I had a brief relationship with a former HS boyfriend, which was nice, but we ultimately decided it didn't work.

It was good to know I could be with someone and not be thinking of Scott the whole time.

But I still struggle with that. It's hard not to compare people to him when I go on dates. There are many times when I have thought of giving up on the dating front, but the loneliness does get to me, so I know I still need to put myself out there. Ever the pessimistic realist!

It doesn't help that I've had some spectacularly bad first and second dates. Really - hall of fame bad!

Logan's doing great. He starts kindergarten in September, which is unbelievable to me!

He will sometimes express sadness at not having a dad at t-ball or kids parties where sometimes it's all dads and me. But mostly we are a tight little duo. And he has my dad and my sister's husband as strong male influences.

I still have a tenuous relationship with my ILs. They weren't happy that I moved. They get on my nerves in a very special way. We're actually headed out to LI this weekend to see them.

It's never easy for me there. Their house is a shrine to Scott and while I understand, I don't like being there because of it. I used to go to my friend Pete and Melissa's house, but I've cut off ties with them. They were just not good friends to me in the end.

That's what you really find out when you go through this. Who are the true friends and who basically sucks.

So sorry for the quick ramble and run.

Wanted to let you know I'm good and thank you for asking. Chat Icon

Re: Where has Leighla been?

I'm so so glad you updated Leighla! I am so happy for you that you are doing well. I know this sounds so bizarre, especially from a person who barely posts, but I have followed your story and I actually think of you often. (Not in a stalker way). What a nice update. I hope you are able to find a partner in life again. May God bless you and your son.

You never disappoint, always an entertaining update and this time sounds like things have improved for you. Congrats on the new house and job. Although I'm not a widow I was a single mom for years and your dating stories always make me chuckle, I remember those awful first dates so well. What you said about friends couldn't be more true, I went through some hard stuff recently and the person I thought cared the most was no where to be found. I hope you and your son and the people you love make a million memories in your new home!
