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
Remember back last year when I wrote a blog post about there is an After? Yeah, take a second and go read that one again. It’s a good bit of information and I am reminded again today, on what would have been my 24th wedding anniversary that there is indeed an After and I have… Continue reading The After
I made some amazing tacos this past week and I shared it on Twitter and had several people ask me for the recipe. So here it is. I am really trying to find a new voice on my new blog site The Next Chapter so I hope you like it. You can substitute beef, pork… Continue reading Cabrito Tacos! The Recipe
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.

There was a time when dating was whatever was put before me. If I found myself attracted to someone I threw… Continue reading Here’s the thing…Dating, Man.
Valentines Day’s a-coming! This is pretty much how I feel walking down my grocery store seasonal isle. So don't go down the isle you say? But it's the one nearest the hooch! But really - I care very little about Valentines Day. It's a made up holiday created by the Greeting Card companies and Candy… Continue reading A few little things….
I have to own something, Y'all. These last several months have been the hardest for me since the first few months after the divorce. I know me - and I am a survivalist. I survive. When I'm in the thick of it, I'm Game-On. My exterior is tight and my Poker Face is strong. I… Continue reading The Lonely Servants Heart
Vulnerability. I had an interaction with someone I care about recently that made me feel really vulnerable. It basically made me feel like my heart was outside of my body and exposed to the elements and it was oh so very unprotected. It felt as though giving a piece of my heart to this person… Continue reading Is vulnerability a dirty word?
I try really hard to not make the same mistake twice. My mom always said if I got in trouble for something I never got caught doing it again. Is this meant to say that I never did that thing again? Or that I never got caught again? Who's to know? I'd like to think… Continue reading The art of f*cking up
