I feel like the only one on the planet (a mom anyways) that doesn't have their kids for summers. I am actually sad, trying to make the best out of it. I live in suburban community, remarried happily thank GOD...and have a lot going for me...although I have a cloud over me most days because I can't shake the feeling that I am isolated in this being a "blended" family...I am a super hands on mom, and having them gone for 7 weeks every summer for 5 years now,,,it is hard to "make the best out of it"...we travel, I write posts lol, I work, we see family,ect...It just gets to me that I have no one I know that has this situation, and all my friends or church members keep asking me,,,where are the kids...ARGH!!!! it makes me feel like a bad mom to have to say,,,I packed them up, put them on a plane, and they are with their other family...the worst part is they want to come home,,,and I am always being positive and cheery to them,,,to have fun ect...is there anyone else out there that goes through this and if so what do you do with your time to be productive and see the bright side++
