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!
Let's face it. I'm pretty much the authority now on being successfully single and loving it. (Please say "Authority" in the voice of Cartman from South Park) So I thought it would be beneficial to write an instructive blog post on how to have a Sexy Saturday Night on this last weekend of 2018. Let… Continue reading Sexy Saturday Night (with instructions)
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
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….
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
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
It's happening. I'm auctioning my wedding ring. Now before you go thinking I'm having financial difficulties, I'm fine. I mean, we can all use some extra money for things like camera equipment, birding trips, cruises, drink packages for said cruises and things like that, amiright? No, this is just because I'm ready for this last… Continue reading Worthy?
Again, Jaime Sullivan from Cawfeetawk came through! Sometimes she just says the perfect thing at the perfect time and it resonates in ripples. See the video here. I started this blog with the intention of rediscovering my gratitude. This blog is my therapy and my healing. This blog is MINE. I have grown, I have rebuilt… Continue reading Sometimes the betrayal is the blessing
I heard a beautiful quote this week; Adversity introduces us to ourselves. That hit me straight between the eyes, because it's true. There have been many times throughout my life that I've faced major adversity, more than I care to go into in this blog - I like to keep these writings at around 700-750 words so we… Continue reading Adversity
