Oh Valentine's Day. Here you are again - you little Bastard. You may remember the photo above from a post from January of last year. It spoke to me then because it was a metaphor for my heart. My tender, fragile heart surrounded in spikes to keep everyone out to ensure I wouldn't get hurt… Continue reading VD is upon us….again.
As a society, it's my opinion that we don't practice enough self-care. Especially those of us who are single and hustling every day to make that money, be responsible grown ups, pay the bills, go to jobs and somewhere in there nurture our important relationships. Where in there is time to nurture ourselves? Lately I've… Continue reading Self care
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
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
