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….

Double Standards

It's a story as old as time...but it still pisses me off. I was talking with a single male friend the other day and we got to discussing the endless list of bad ideas about having sexual relationships in the work place.  It's just never a good idea.  I personally have two steadfast rules....I won't… Continue reading Double Standards

I’m a Junkie

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

And then one day….

I made some moves today, y'all.  I ended the relationship with The Gentleman. It was honestly the sweetest breakup I've ever had.  We just are two strong willed, independent and stuck in our ways adults.  There are some things I'm just not willing to ignore or accept and the same goes for him.  We parted… Continue reading And then one day….

Thrive where you are planted

Often over the past two years I sometimes found myself questioning why things went down the way they did. I have had times of quietly (sometimes not so quietly) demanding why God/The Universe/The Creator dumped a steaming pile of shit in my lap that I was solely in charge of cleaning up. Why suddenly at… Continue reading Thrive where you are planted
