In case you missed it, the title of this blog is supposed to be a subtle reference to the movie A Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the quest to find the answer to ‘Life, the Universe and Everything.’ In the movie, the answer turns out to be 42 – a simple answer that really explains nothing at all. So as someone who is always searching for answers to life’s questions and solutions to life’s problems (although I know its a somewhat futile search) I’ve always liked that part of the movie. Now that I’m a parent, my ‘universe’ doesn’t extend much beyond parenting. And so, my blog is about Life, Parenting and Everything.
And I’ll quote from my first blog post:
So here I am, sharing my journey of life, parenting, and everything. I am a mother of a 7 year old boy and a 2 year old girl. I have recently separated from my husband, and I am currently struggling with depression and coming to terms with being a single mother. I am always striving to find ways to be a better parent, a better housekeeper and a better person. I hope that some of the things I write will be useful to someone.
