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. Today is a perfect example.  November 12th.  The day before my son's birthday.  The day 24 years ago that my ex… Continue reading Anniversaries & Milestones

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.

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

And then one day….

I made some moves today, y'all.  I ended the relationship with The Gentleman. It was honestly the sweetest breakup I've ever had.  We just are two strong willed, independent and stuck in our ways adults.  There are some things I'm just not willing to ignore or accept and the same goes for him.  We parted… Continue reading And then one day….

October

Has it really almost been a month since I published a blog post? I'm sorry, y'all. October has me in its snare again. Every year I get weird. I get sad, depressed, angry and pull inward. I call it cocooning. I sort of wrap myself up in my apartment and don't want to talk. There's… Continue reading October

September 11th

Twelve years ago my body changed.  Twelve years ago today I was in surgery for eleven hours as I underwent a double mastectomy and reconstruction in the same day. I often joke that on September 11th, 2006 my twin towers fell.  That joke doesn't feel right today.  Seventeen years ago today something horrible happened in… Continue reading September 11th

Perspective

I was walking past my Blessings Jar recently and noticed it's getting pretty full.  That makes me happy.  It makes me happy that I have so many blessings in my life that need documenting, and it also makes me happy that I'm at a place in my life where I see the blessings and am… Continue reading Perspective
