Hello!! My name is Tina and I live in Denver, Colorado. I am in my early 40’s and starting a new chapter in my life shortly with the end of my 18 year marriage heartbreak. We have no children together but I am a birth mom to a 22 year old son (who I was reunited with in 2006). I am the youngest of 5 children from a small community in the midwestern state of Michigan. I am extremely close to my family back home. estatic
I am currently in training to become a private investigator with a private company and have been doing so for over a year now. I also have many other interests as well including: Reiki (I am a Second-Degree Reiki Practitioner since 1998), real estate investing, repurposing furniture, geneaology, crocheting, traveling, meeting new people, reading (anything by Janet Evanovich or Kay Hooper or Robert Crais or Stuart Woods or Michael Connoley), working on becoming an author, shabby chic decorating, listening to music (country, easy listening, 80’s, classical, Big Band, etc.), ziplining, white water rafting, history, dancing, driving, spa days, Jeep vehicles, classic fashion, the Fall and Winter seasons, never forgetting the inner child in all of us, inspiring and encouraging others, laughing, baking (especially chocolate chip cookies), alternative medicines, Pilates, T-Tapp, purchasing my dream home on the water in Michigan, getting together with friends as often as possible!!! heart

    • Morning Tina,

      It’s a quiet weekend and it’s been relaxing. ;oD  Periods of rain, even some hail yesterday, cold, so I have spent it inside mostly. I visited with friends last weekend while the sun was shining so I’m good with hunkering down here at home this weekend. ;oD  

      Going through a divorce myself though it's taking the bleep a year & a half at this time to  get down to the settlement segment coming up on June 8th. I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel!  

      Cathie

    • Hello Cathie,  

      Awwww....sorry you got rain this weekend. Its going to be pretty nice here in Colorado. I am not a hot weather girl so I just hunker down all summer and pray for Fall and Winter...lol.  

      I am so sorry its taken your divorce so long to be finalized. We don’t have much so it’s not going to take long at all. Maybe the lack of things together was a huge sign that we both knew it wasn’t going to work??? Who knows. Are you holding up okay??? I am still trying to figure my life out but I am excited about being without a huge albatross around my neck in the form of my soon-to-be ex :) .  How long were you married????

      Hope you have the most wonderful Memorial weekend of your life. It sounds like you have more than earned it with what you have had to go through with the divorce!!! :)

    • Morning Tina,

      Oh yes, I’m holding up Ok and thanks for asking. ;oD  Since I’m still married legally, it’s 17 and 1/2 years now. I could not say if your lack of things to divide was any sign that your marriage was doomed by doubts of it lasting so that you didn’t invest in your life together, but how you see it now matters.  

      And you’ve got your training to be a PI going for you. That is one profession I think is not going to be boring. ;oD  Don’t worry about me, I have a plan B.  

      I felt like I was on vacation here at home this weekend. It was nice and I enjoyed just kicking back and no structured plans. Might do it one more day!  LOL  

      Wishing you well!  

      Cathie
