Pumpkin Pie.

November 30, 2008

Thanksgiving rocked! We spent my four days off out at Grandma’s and I have the crazy pictures to prove it. I was going to write a big, long, slightly cheesy post tonight but instead I’m going wtih all of these pictures. Here’s Benjamin refusing to put on a hat and giving me a familiar look [...]

Question #2 from my readers and my video response. (I’m all sick but managed to get through without passing out or coughing). Enjoy. For Question # 1: How do I get over my ex? Click here. And here are some follow up posts on the very hot topic of finding men to date (not like [...]

Fish Bowl Effect

November 26, 2008

I’m stealing the fish bowl line from Kristin at Better Now. I am putting my Mr. Man stories on hold for a little while… I know you all love them and I love writing them but now we’re caught up to the present (we were three weeks behind there for a while and that had [...]

The point of no return.

November 25, 2008

“I’m sorry I was so short with you on Sunday,” I told Mr. Man. My fears got the best of me last weekend and I felt like a schmuck. “It’s okay. You’re probably stressed. I still can’t believe how much you do – you never stop… ever. I mean, it’s just too much for one [...]

Damn you, fear.

November 24, 2008

It’s happening… My relationship phobia is kicking in. Always hits at the same time – after about one month. I start freaking out imagining this terminal diagnosis of actually being with someone indefinitely. Mr. Man has been incredibly patient -no, he has been more than patient – he has been considerate and totally understanding of [...]

Research.

November 23, 2008

Two questions: 1. What advice would you give other single parents for handling the holidays solo? I’ll be alone this Christmas and need the advice too. 2. Where are the best places to meet quality men? Here are some of my top spots to meet them, but I’m sure you have more to add. I’m [...]

Lots of love to go around.

November 21, 2008

This past weekend Mr. Man, Benjamin and I took off to visit Morgan (Modern Single Momma) in Kentucky. A fantastic video of Morgan and her man is on the way, along with another single mom advice video from yours truly. In the meantime, here are some of the photos Morgan took this weekend. I think [...]

Save (at least) $150 a month now.

November 20, 2008

I’ve been at this for a while now – this single mom thing – and the reason why I have some extra cash now for savings plans and all of that fun stuff is thanks to the thrifty measures I took during that first year just to survive. Some of these call for new habits [...]

Swept.

November 18, 2008

I threw on my gold, slinky dress, slipped on my knee high leather boots and then topped it off with a long black wig which I’d braided earlier. Part of a group Peter Pan costume, I was Tiger Lily. “C’mon! Get yours on,” I shouted to Mr. Man as I started in on my make [...]

Do you still believe in “The One”?

November 18, 2008

I certainly hope not. Not that I don’t believe in love or anything – I’m a huge fan of love. But fantasy ideas of finding “the one” or a “prince charming” can be reckless for your children and your self. Actually, it could save us all a lot of heartache if we entered relationships with [...]
