Let's chalk this up to research folks!

Hey there all
Well, this is my first official blogging of what I've been working on for 5 years.  Yep, I have decided to finally put it out there and see what happens. 
I will back track later but give a short summary now for those of you who don't know where my life has brought me up until this point.

Shall we begin?  Yes, that sounds lovely. 

July 2005 - suddenly, but not suprisingly, I ended a marriage of just under 6 years.  At this point in time, my daughter was 8 months old and I was alone as a single mom.  I had to return to work 2 months early from my 1 year maternity leave, and I was left to figure out everything on my own. 
Luckily, I have an amazing mom who always taught me to stand on my own two feet.
So, thanks to Mom,  I'm not afraid to mow the lawn (although I hate it), climb a ladder to clean eavestroughs and I can do minor repairs around the house (or locate someone who knows how!)

October 2005 - I return to work and I begin to think about dating.  Let the games begin!

Present day - still dating. 
Time lapsed:  5 yrs and 9days since the marriage ended 
Total ex boyfriend count:  5
Total first dates:  ?????? unknown
Total BAD first dates:  oodles

I'm back, I'm single again... and I'm quite enjoying my experiences thus far.

All in the name of research!
