My new high is when I'm in that sweet spot. When it feels so good and I chase it again and again. I'm not talking about alcohol or any kind of illegal high, but I crave it just the same. No, I'm talking about that sweet window...just an hour or two when the ibuprofen stacked… Continue reading The New High in my life
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…
So I cancelled my date with the guy last weekend. I also told him I wanted to go back to being just friends. I explained that he had opened my eyes to my inability to trust and the triggers (how I hate that word) that he spurred. He reluctantly agreed. How does one go about… Continue reading Bandaids over Bullet holes

Tomorrow will be February 3rd,… Continue reading Forgiveness
The past several months have been some of the most fun of my entire life. I mean it's been a combination of How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Exhale and Sex & The City (The first one, not that awful sequel) all rolled into one. I've had dates, I've made friends, I've made Friends with… Continue reading Feelings, Man!
I woke up this morning with John Lennon's Christmas Song in my head. "So this is Christmas and what have you done? Another year over, a new one just begun." It's hard to wake up on December 25th and not think of all the Christmas' spent when the ex and I were married, as we… Continue reading Christmas 2018
I've been seeing, reading, and saying this motto recently Getting divorced sucks. Being divorced doesn't. I know, it's been a minute since I last wrote a blog post. I was really good there for a while, writing and publishing a post every week. Then The Gentleman happened. I'm no longer Single & Selfish....well, no longer… Continue reading It’s been a minute
