What are your plans for this weekend? We are both traveling and I miss you so much! I feel the hardest part of divorce is all or nothing. When I’m solo with them, I go all out, and I love it. And when they leave, especially on the first day, it feels gloomy. I’m working on transition and hope it’s like a muscle getting stronger. (Any advice from fellow parents?) In the meantime! I hope you have a good time. Enjoy Independence Day. Eid Mubarak for those who celebrate Eid al-Adha. Here are some links from around the web.

Annie B has this to say about how to comfort a friend: I didn’t grow up in a very expressive family, so I positively understand the urge to move away from it.
