Something Missing

August 28, 2010

I have lost myself again. I am 10 pages deep into a journal from the 11th grade. I snap out of my self-induced memory trip, thank the cosmos for letting me survive high school, and stuff the journal tightly into the box. It fits perfectly next to the picture of my sister and I in […]

The wow factor.

April 26, 2009

Father Figure

April 8, 2009

It’s been so long since I’ve had a husband, or even a steady boyfriend for that matter, that I now can only imagine what it would be like. That’s literally all I’ve got.

My imaginary husband

April 6, 2009

It’s been so long since I’ve had a husband, or even a steady boyfriend for that matter, that I now can only imagine what it would be like. There’s nothing tangible left, not even an old pair of boxer shorts. Just pictures like this one. At first, when Benjamin was just four-months-old, the memories of […]

Questions

March 11, 2009

Spring is almost here.  Time for fresh starts, flowers, warm days, cool nights and even thunderstorms. Mother nature is brewing up a quite the romance cocktail. Not sure if I’ll be taking a few sips but I better prepare myself just in case.  Just to be safe I wrote myself a single mom dating to-do list.  […]

I’m a single mom, dating, and again my ex-husband is a no show. But this time it’s on date night. Yikes! Being a single mom is so hard sometimes.

Bye, Bye Daddy?

January 17, 2009

I have been a dating single mom for over two years now. And the first thing I can tell you is this – it’s not easy. First you have to get past your divorce, the heartbreak, the anger and the tears. And then, once you are finally ready to get back out there, you have […]
