Two Years Ago Today….

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….

Anniversaries & Milestones

This too shall pass

Anger turned inward becomes depression. I've been a little crabby lately.  (See what I did there?) No, really.  I'm dealing with some depression and sadness as I round out this last week of the first year of divorce.  I'm big on dates.  Like, it's not normal.  I remember dates like a calendar.  For example, yesterday… Continue reading This too shall pass
