My Tattoo

April 30, 2009

I know I have been scant.  I hate that.  I have so many things to write about. But time is not my friend, especially when I have a video to edit. Here’s the result. I hope you love it as much as I do. Special thanks to Biggs at High Street Tattoo for coming in […]

Rogue Mission

April 28, 2009

If you missed it… Last month I entered a video in hopes of being selected as one of 100 Ford Fiesta Movement agents. A few weeks later I got a surprising phone call from Ford that I had, indeed won. The call came from this guy… Andrew, my Mission Control point of contact. Isn’t he […]

The wow factor.

April 26, 2009

My Ford Fiesta. I am absolutely divinely head over heels in love with my new ride.  I just got home last night but Benjamin and I were out and about all day cruising.  Now I’m wiped out.  I have a lot of video to edit, some posts to write and a secret self-induced single mama […]

Single Mom Dating Zen: Lions & Tigers

April 23, 2009

What if there are two men? There’s the tiger who has no rules. He has traces of warmth and is even very sweet but he’s healing, refusing to feel. His hurt is palpable and it makes you angry that some young childless thing broke this perfect man for the rest of us. Didn’t she see […]

When it rains.

April 21, 2009

See this little smirk of his? That is my heart and soul. That face up there is a goofy question mixed with extreme excitement and “I have to go potty” terror, all rolled into one adorable smirk. Some things are always yours and only yours but others like, dialect, movements, smiles – those come from […]

April 20, 2009

I’ve been hiding my location, or attempting to, since starting this blog. I deliberately chose not to reveal my city to avoid that one in a million chance that a psycho would decide to stalk and/or kill me. You never know. And being a single mom, living alone with my son, I think it’s logical […]

Clearing the Mr. Man Air & Morgan Siler

April 19, 2009

Here we all are… happy as can be. One week from today Morgan and I will be on separate flights to Chicago where we’ll meet to pick up that new car I won. After my top secret agent and drivers training (I have to re-learn a stick), Morgan and I will be driving the car […]

Someone just called me the L-word.

April 17, 2009

I can’t seem to pinch myself hard enough. If you haven’t found single parent friends yet, use Twitter. You can actually search for people in your neighborhood who are using certain words. So, I could look for someone who has said “single mom” within 100 miles from me. Try it. There are Tweetups in just about […]

Single Mom Friday Zen, V

April 17, 2009

I’m in love with my friendships. That’s okay, right?  One more step to normal, to trusting. I’m getting there. They may be baby steps but if I can form relationships with my friends that will last a life time, doesn’t that mean there’s a chance I could do the same with a man?  — no […]
