Man things (and a video)

September 30, 2009

When I first started dating John Bear his dog drove me crazy. Every time I would come over Murphy would jump on me, scratching my bare legs with his thick doggy claws and if he wasn’t jumping he was panting and staring at me, all the while emitting a subtle doggy smell. When I put […]

Single and Childless

September 29, 2009

I had an amazing day yesterday… not because I am all in love and stuff (although that made it nice too) but because I got to see two of my best single and childless girlfriends. And now I’m wondering what or who I would be without them in my life. First, there’s Alison… (who is […]

September 27, 2009

After an out of town wedding and in the midst of my supreme (damn I can’t believe I got that drunk at the reception) hangover, I packed up coloring books, a few toys and some blankets and then Benjamin and I went to the park. “It’s a great beautiful day outside, Mommy.” “Yeah it is, […]

For my stalkers…

September 25, 2009

I now have my Facebook set to automatically update my Twitter. It means I’ll be in both places at once. Don’t you love technology?

September 24, 2009

When Benjamin’s child support payments suddenly ceased three months ago I knew something was up. A few weeks later the restaurant his father worked for closed it’s doors – turning their employees out with no paychecks.  I didn’t rely on his child support, the amount – although used – was barely enough to cover our […]

A few things happened this weekend that I will remember for the rest of my life… Lesson #1: Never leave home without your camera I realized one hour into my drive to Katie and Brian’s wedding, six hours away from home, that I had forgotten my camera. I couldn’t turn around, although I thought about […]

Boxed in…

September 17, 2009

Everyone in the world needs a new website. It makes sense. The Internet changes daily and the website you invested in even one year ago is now out of date, out of whack and just plain useless. This is a bad thing for most businesses but a very good thing for me. I am flooded […]

Bikini Wearing Waitresses

September 16, 2009

A word, if I may, about bikini wearing waitresses and other things that drive women nuts. If you are ever dating a guy and said guy walks into a bar with waitresses wearing bikinis, or a strip joint or a Hooter’s and then let’s say you get a bit upset by this. Perhaps your ex-husband […]

Katie’s Story

September 15, 2009

I used to talk to myself in the shower. Now, I do it here. I left my husband when my son was just four months old. I started this blog about being a single mom, one year later. During that first year, I was hunting – searching for someone to rescue me. Then something happened. […]
