Side-Eye Susan photo credit: Me I've discovered that I'm the type of woman that can tell in two dates if there is hope of a future date. That, along with the ability to fold a fitted sheet appear to be my super powers. I had two dates this weekend, with the same guy. We'll call… Continue reading Two dates, an Athiest & a Magician
I woke up with a serious bee in my bonnet today. It’s Valentine’s Day again and I 👏🏼 Hate 👏🏼 It👏🏼!! It’s the dumbest holiday if you’re single. It’s the sweetest holiday if you’re happily in love. Bleh!! Gross! Gag me with a chocolate spoon. I’ve been rather venomous on social media today, spewing my… Continue reading F¥cking Valentine’s Day
That's all dating is, really...finding two people who want to stick their neck out and see if there might be a match. I've been getting a few messages wondering how the second date with Car Guy went. It wasn't great. I think what I took away from that date was something that Maya Angelou once… Continue reading Sticking your neck out
Every time I start to seriously join a dating site I get the vapors. Not gassy, exactly...but, I get really anxious. It's not a fun feeling.

Valentines Day’s a-coming! This is pretty much how I feel walking down my grocery store seasonal isle. So don't go down the isle you say? But it's the one nearest the hooch! But really - I care very little about Valentines Day. It's a made up holiday created by the Greeting Card companies and Candy… Continue reading A few little things….
I have to own something, Y'all. These last several months have been the hardest for me since the first few months after the divorce. I know me - and I am a survivalist. I survive. When I'm in the thick of it, I'm Game-On. My exterior is tight and my Poker Face is strong. I… Continue reading The Lonely Servants Heart
Every year in my life has a theme or a motto. 2016 was Demolish. My world was shattered and all that I knew to be safe and whole was destroyed. 2017 was Renew. I grew, I grieved, I started a blog. I got my feet underneath me again. 2018 was Shenanigans. I started a couple… Continue reading Surrender
While I don't wish divorce upon my worst enemy, the national average tells us that it's going to happen to many of us. It's unfortunately a fact of life when you are dealing with adult humans who have freedom of will and sometimes a case of impulse control or just a Shady AF partner. While… Continue reading Divorce Essentials!!
Vulnerability. I had an interaction with someone I care about recently that made me feel really vulnerable. It basically made me feel like my heart was outside of my body and exposed to the elements and it was oh so very unprotected. It felt as though giving a piece of my heart to this person… Continue reading Is vulnerability a dirty word?
