OK, some of you may have noticed that I changed the wording on my header & description (or mebbe you didn't). Well, the times they are a changin'. I think it is probably good to indicate that I'm no longer writing about dating & all of those lovely frogs I kissed--the blog's focus has definitely shifted (sailing certainly is still in there). I think it is fair to say that I'm writing more about the trials & tribulations of an LTR & how to successfully blend families after divorce. Yup, that's it! And, it ain't easy...but for the most part we seem to have navigated part one fairly well--from introductions to doing activities together to spending a week at the beach. Yeah, there are bumps in the road, but if this were part one of the story, we've closed that chapter & now onto the next. Which brings me to the "MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT"
If it weren't hard enough to bring our families together, Xing Fu & I are now going to push the envelope some more. We are really planning to blend the families--no, not what you're thinking--no wedding bells. But we are going to live together. That's the plan & oh boy, as happy & excited as I am to move our relationship to the next level, I am rife with anxiety as well. I realized today that I haven't lived with anyone besides my kid since I kicked my ex out in 2004. Big changes coming for us all. We've always said that we test the reaches of our relationship--those early relationship tests--like getting stranded in a snowstorm together all of two weeks into our dating one another. I think we're up for the challenge. Stay tuned!
