In My World - Everyday Seems Like A Monday!

 So waking up every morning is always a new adventure for me since my motto is "Everyday is a new day". Cause last night I was like, all freaking anxiety-ridden over the impending SE - PAR - A - TION, and after a tearful phone call with my brother, I had a glass of Pinot Nior and simply snapped out of it....more

WARNING: Bored Domesticated Female on the Loose!

 Haven't been inspired to write this past week because frankly, I got a really, really bad case of Boreditis. Let me tell you something, there is NOTHING worse than a bored housewife, mom, 40-something woman who is on the verge of being pre-menopausal! You know when we moms get really bored, we do serious shopping. That can be a dangerous thing to the bank account. But since it's the first of the month and already, I am completely broke - that just isn't an option at the moment....more

I love this post.  No seriously...I LOVE THIS POST.  Oh that same to do list ...more

Will the Roloffs be the Next TLC Divorce? Or are the Little People Adjusting to the Big World of Marriage?

Ex-Management

Its not communication, its “Ex-Management” Soon after my divorce, I realized that my ex-husband and I no longer knew how to communicate with each other. Fifteen years, two children, 4 years of therapy and a divorce later, we were unclear as to how to be “partners” instead of “spouses”. ...more

A LAUNDERER'S TALE

Dating After Divorce: Everything is Different Now

I’ve been absolutely petrified at the very idea of moving on, of throwing my hat in the ring. Dating. Wow. I haven’t been touched by another man in many years, save for a guy that stole a kiss from me and almost made me vomit, simply because he wasn’t my husband. ...more

Divorce in my Death Valley

Leaving a marriage requires bravery and strength. Running requires stamina and also strength. Not just sinewy muscle strength, but an inner strength to keep moving. The two intertwine themselves in my life lately, as I find myself literally and figuratively running these days. I have always sucked at running. My mother tried several times to drag me out of bed to run at Coggin Park. Nasty little park with enough cracks and bulges in the pavement to trip anyone, much less an awkward pre-teen with two left feet. ...more

Stuck at Work

The word "confluence" is cruising around my brain looking for a good sentence to fit in.  Something about the following: 1.  My 19-month-old son now speaks and is increasingly interesting and gratifying to spend time with. 2.  The holidays are over and I face the prospect of seeing him for about 3 1/2 hours a day, Monday through Friday, week in, week out, with some of that time every day lost to preparing dinner. ...more
