I've written before that someday I'd like to get a tattoo that reads "Scars are like birthmarks but with better stories". Scars are funny. Some are on the outside, some are on the inside. Some scars heal and lighten on their own, and some scars are dark, rippled, puckered and pronounced forever. We often don't… Continue reading Another scar….
Yep, you heard right folks. I'm 48 years old and I'm having a full hip replacement later this summer. I've suffered from hip pain for the last five years or really if I'm honest, it's been off and on for the last ten years but it's progression has ramped up in the last five.

Twitter. It seems be be getting a new push and is a super active and dare I say hip place to be. Now, I've been on Twitter for over ten years in various account manifestations. I started my very first account after breast cancer and as a means to connect to other breast cancer survivors,… Continue reading My love affair with…
I know I've written plenty about how I just want to sleep alone in my bed with the remote control all to myself, snuggling with my cuddly puppy and being Ms. Independent, yada yada yada.

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

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!!
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'm baaaack! If you've been a fan of the blog for a while (like the beginning) you'll know I had a cruise scheduled with ten other women, some I work with, some are old friends, some were new friends. It was a five day Carnival Cruise on The Valor and it was in one word....amazing.… Continue reading Cruising & The Single Gal
An Experience Junkie, that is. As the photo of me with the fish will attest, I did in fact survive the excursion to the fishing lodge with The Chef. He has proven himself to not be a serial killer, I found no evidence of blood or body fragments in the lodge and he was a… Continue reading I’m a Junkie
