The freedom to just ask

Freedom. Feeling free is the last thing I experience right now. However determined to give freedom a go I have to keep going!No turning back to the padded cage for me, I have a Garden of Eden beckoning me.   We have done it!The house is for sale. We got the painter in and of course we signed up with a Real Estate agent. Now that it is all official, I have a hard time coping with not knowing how it all is going to pan out. ...more

On the Prowl or is Life Just Like That?

Being at home with the flu has caused my brain to go into overdrive and I feel the need to write. Who would have thunk it... I am 30, single and ready to move on with my life. I have joked that I would create a blog called, "On the Prowl... Adventures of a H*#NEY 30 Year Old" but really life is like that sometimes.

I wish

I did this. I could've stayed, and everyone would probably be the better for it. Everyone but me, and everyone in the here and now. But instead, I left. I left a marriage where I would tell him I felt invisible and he would mock me and laugh. I left a marriage where I drove myself to radiologist appointments and the emergency room because he didn't feel like it. I left a marriage where the only time he could be nice was when he was high or wanted some. ...more
