I have a few friends who are in the trenches right now. Experiencing betrayal on the most intimate level and the emotional roller coasters are really rough. While it's hard to watch your friends be in the depths of despair and wrought with trauma, I also know there is a light at the end of… Continue reading Rear view reflections
So here’s the thing. The Single & Selfish thing has pretty much run its course. I am for all intents and purposes, living full time with The Judge. I still have my apartment- my lease isn’t up until the end of the year, but I’d rather spend every night with him. It’s that great. This… Continue reading The Next Chapter
What a crazy time in the world for all of us. We are all experiencing this same insanity in real time all together as a planet and while it's scary, it's also a beautiful time in my personal life. I asked on Twitter if people wanted to read a new blog post, but that it… Continue reading Love in the time of Quarantine
Screenshot from https://pin.it/3iTYV25 on Pinterest I warned you. This is going to be a gag-fest if you’re single and salty. Maybe that should have been my monicker instead of Single & Selfish. I digress...if you are one of my people who is anti love and anti relationship- which is totally ok!! You do you, Boo-Boo;… Continue reading This is going to be gross

I got my feet underneath me again. 2018 was Shenanigans. I started a couple… Continue reading Surrender
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!!
You all know I suffer from The Curse. The Curse of the Independent Woman. I don't need a man, I don't need a relationship. I don't need anyone to pay my bills or take care of my home or anything else. I'm like a stubborn toddler with a spoon and a jar of peanut butter..."I… Continue reading Lil Miss Independent asks for help
Yep, there she is, folks. My new Side Chick, Candy. Get it? Candy Cane? I know, eye roll. I'll see myself out. I'm more and more shocked at how exhausting chronic pain is. I mean really. It takes me twice as long to get anywhere, I'm afraid of falling - hence the cane and people… Continue reading I’m exhausted
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…
