Spending the Holidays On Your Own

Being single is never as lonely as when holiday season is here. Being a single parent is awful when our children spend the day with their other parent. Luckily, we're not alone. There are others out there who share this same predicament and there are great resources that provide support and suggestions for those of us spending holidays alone, or at least without our child.

A website that I just discovered today, Solo Dad, posted a wonderful list - 5 Ways to Have a Great Solo Thanksgiving.

For more great everyday tips and articles on single parenting, visit these great sites:

When I am solo for the holidays, I sometimes just bust out my Bianchi road bike, and pedal the day away.... http://dadshouseblog.com/2008/11/24/a-holiday-custody-schedule-that-sucks/
