Awkward Brunch: in Which Adonis and I Bump Into Each Other on a Date

August 22, 2017

Like all real things, there is a complicated side to ‘uncomplicated’.   My dream date with Adonis , for example. It was lovely, but puzzling. In between dates, we have been practically strangers to each other. He’ll ignore my texts until he wants to talk to me. Much of our lives are kept sealed away like […]

Happy Eclipse Day!

August 21, 2017

I love the idea of experiencing a reversal of night and day. Illumination in the shadows. Feeling very trippy and emotional. It’s also the first day of seventh grade for Tim. God, I cannot believe how fast time has flown! He’s at the same school he started at when he was three, and it’s crazy […]

Dating Horrors, Molly Undercover Version

August 21, 2017

It’s time for another round of dating horror stories: A date with a guy that was not nearly as hot as I’d first thought: I am getting over being sick and only out with this dude due to boredom. This guy is AWFUL to talk to. When a guy launches into a speech on the […]

Single Mama Bear and The Centaur

August 20, 2017

He showed me his and I showed him mine. . .  Nicknames, that is.   ‘Wild Animal Man’ aka, ‘The Centaur’ revealed that I’m not the only one giving pet names! Awwww. . . . The Centaur doesn’t talk about feels. For example, he’s never, ever said “I like you a lot” or “I think […]

Dream Date with Adonis

August 19, 2017

A date so good that I’m not even sure it really happened.  It’s the opposite of  dating horror stories. While I want to recount dates like this to each of my friends and family, they don’t want to hear it. But I want to tell about it, if you’re interested. James Dean + a satyr […]

Redefining Family Vacations

June 28, 2017

I’m going to need to be complainey here just for a minute, ok?  I promise, I’ll get it out of my system so we can get back to interesting and fun things tomorrow. But today, I had that ‘cry in the car’ kind of day, and each of my friends and siblings have done their […]

Early Summer Update and the Ex’s New Girl

June 26, 2017

June has been a single parenting/elder care/dating/work/social whirlwind! The highlights since I’ve last posted are the following: Tim stayed with his Dad for a week and I used the eerily free time to catch up on my social life–that’s why there have been so few posts!  I went to my first music festival, had one […]

Texting while Dating: A Cautionary Tale

May 24, 2017

Some typos can’t be deleted. Introducing Wild Animal Man/The Centaur. I’ll explain plenty more about him in future posts. All you need to know for the purpose of this tale is, we first met when we randomly ran into each other twice in two weeks, and then we had one great date. Also, his name might seem like an […]

Very First Date After a Divorce

May 17, 2017

  To date post divorce you just have to dive in. In her famous Ted talk on vulnerability, Brené Brown says, “vulnerability is. . . the first date after a divorce” I couldn’t agree more. I was terrified before my first date! Three months after my husband and I separated, I wasn’t looking for someone to […]

The Kid’s First Birthday as a Single Mama

May 16, 2017

I’m navigating Tim’s birthday as a single parent for the first time. I just had such a hot mess of a phone call with his Dad about it. We are cooperative but tense. I’m trying to be cool and functional and reasonable, but inside I’m still dealing with some strong feelings , and I know […]
