Wrapping up 2018

In just over two weeks I will open a bottle of good wine and dump out my Blessings Jar. I'll open each folded piece of paper and read each and every one, taking my time, remembering what was happening in my life at that moment that I felt so important it had to be memorialized… Continue reading Wrapping up 2018

The First Casualty

I read an article this morning, I'll link it below. Eat, Pray, Make Love: Why you absolutely must have shameless sex after your divorce. Maybe I was looking for validation that I'm not a bad person, that I'm not abnormal, that I'm not selfish (in the negative connotation of that word) and that I'm not… Continue reading The First Casualty

Happy Thanksgiving

It's Thanksgiving, Y'all!  For those of you outside the US, Thanksgiving is a holiday that celebrates gratitude, family and time together.  It's a moment for us to acknowledge what we're grateful for and try not to talk too much politics or religion at the dinner table.  It's universally considered a successful holiday if no one… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving

Two Years Ago Today….

Remember when I told y'all that I'm like Rain Man with dates?  It's both a blessing and a curse.  Two years ago today I came home (It was a Friday) and kicked my husband out of our home.  I'd found out he'd been lying about working, he'd been accused of committing a felony and he… Continue reading Two Years Ago Today….

Anniversaries & Milestones

Will my mind ever cease being an ever swirling pool of anniversaries and dates? I am like Rainman with dates and anniversaries.  They bubble up in my memory and I just can't help it.

Double Standards

It's a story as old as time...but it still pisses me off. I was talking with a single male friend the other day and we got to discussing the endless list of bad ideas about having sexual relationships in the work place.  It's just never a good idea.  I personally have two steadfast rules....I won't… Continue reading Double Standards

Cruising & The Single Gal

I'm baaaack!  If you've been a fan of the blog for a while (like the beginning) you'll know I had a cruise scheduled with ten other women, some I work with, some are old friends, some were new friends.  It was a five day Carnival Cruise on The Valor and it was in one word....amazing.… Continue reading Cruising & The Single Gal

My Mom can’t read this post

Seriously Mom! Stop reading and go to another post.  This one isn't for you. (You either, Dad!) Is she gone? MOM! Seriously! Move along! Ok. She's gone. This post is on a topic that has been on my mind the last few weeks and since it's not going away, the only thing I can do… Continue reading My Mom can’t read this post

I’m a Junkie

An Experience Junkie, that is. As the photo of me with the fish will attest, I did in fact survive the excursion to the fishing lodge with The Chef.  He has proven himself to not be a serial killer, I found no evidence of blood or body fragments in the lodge and he was a… Continue reading I’m a Junkie

A New Day

A new day, a new date. Friends have been reaching out to me since I ended things with The Gentleman, just to make sure I'm really ok, and I am.  I'm good.  I have realized a lot of things recently that have helped me understand how and why I was able to end things with… Continue reading A New Day
