The strangest thing happened to me on the internet the other day.... A man slid into my DM's on Twitter....and didn't want to show me a photo of his junk. It's true. I got a message from @Newmanin2018 who posts to the account Best Dad I Can Be and he suggested this topic. So… Continue reading Dating Apps!!
The word forgiveness is at the forefront of my thoughts today. It's still early on this lazy Saturday morning. I've walked the dog, did the yoga and am settled in with a cup of coffee and my laptop to do some journaling. Then I realized something. I'm not angry anymore. Tomorrow will be February 3rd,… Continue reading Forgiveness
When I ended my marriage over two years ago, over time I found freedom. I could make my own choices without consulting anyone else and could set new goals and challenges for myself. One of those goals was to do yoga. I used to be a gym rat with my ex-husband. We would go to… Continue reading Goals
The past several months have been some of the most fun of my entire life. I mean it's been a combination of How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Exhale and Sex & The City (The first one, not that awful sequel) all rolled into one. I've had dates, I've made friends, I've made Friends with… Continue reading Feelings, Man!
I woke up this morning with John Lennon's Christmas Song in my head. "So this is Christmas and what have you done? Another year over, a new one just begun." It's hard to wake up on December 25th and not think of all the Christmas' spent when the ex and I were married, as we… Continue reading Christmas 2018
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
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
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….
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
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
