So here we are again, guys. Yep. I broke my kneecap. I'm currently stuck in bed again with an ice pack. It's honestly something I've had a hard time talking about because I just can't believe I'm here again. It was Wednesday when I was simply walking - and POP. I felt a pop, and… Continue reading So this happened…
If you've been around here for long you might remember one of my very early blog posts back in 2017 that was about Gaslighting. In that blog post, I mentioned that I'd never heard the term before until I started reading posts by @StillLearning2b on Twitter otherwise known as Lisa Arends. She's a fellow Texan,… Continue reading Lessons from the rear view
It's our Blogaversary! Two years ago, I remember where I was, thoughts circling in my brain. I was thinking about my divorce, thinking about how alone I felt. I remember suddenly realizing that I was looking at this whole being alone thing the wrong way. Perhaps I needed to think of the aloneness as being… Continue reading Happy Blogday!!
Hey you. Yeah, you. The one over there bleeding from your blood pumper chest hole where your heart used to be. Waking up daily thinking it was all just a dream only to in the very next moment have reality crash into you that the break up, the divorce, the separation, the end, really did… Continue reading There is an After
I have a confession. I can be.....an asshole. One of my Best Girlfriends is having a bit of a time. I won't say she's struggling, because she's not - she kicks ass at everything she touches, but she's admittedly got a lot of balls in the air. She's a Mom of some amazing tiny humans… Continue reading The Amazing Power of Women
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.
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
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….
