Since losing the marital home, my daughter and I are now on the great chase for an affordable place that won’t have us eating rocks. Such are the circumstances of divorce. I have decided to make moving into a new place once it’s found into an adventure. That’s what the child experts say: “Make moving fun for your kids.” Okay–I got that. Make moving fun? Check one.

  1. Such a bum deal. Kids don’t quite grasp the magnitude of situations like that. At least you can still do fun things like go to the park for free!

Best of luck!
