Secret Code

June 4, 2009

A few weeks ago the Bear and I were on a date. I still can’t believe how much he spoils me. Dates galore, dinners, drinks, whatever I want and it’s lovely. We were talking about something or another in regards to this site and some issue I’ve been having and then he said, “Let me [...]

That Couple

June 1, 2009

Larry is in his seventies but his eyes are young. He had a major hand in creating the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway, a thriving tourist destination for Athens County and his energy seems to be endless. He’ll never acknowledge his age with words or by his actions and I find this amazing and inspiring. We’ve [...]

Man Shopping

May 15, 2009

When you’re a mother and dating things can get tricky. It’s why more than ever I have been utilizing a little theory I crafted back in my single and childless days to make sure I remain in control of my dating life. There have been bumps in the road, an errant bad boy or two [...]

The dating front

May 4, 2009

I’ve met a bear. It’s quite ironic actually because after I wrote about the tiger and the lion, a bear showed up. What’s even odder is that so many of you had commented telling me only a bear would do. And I sat here reading those comments, wondering – perplexed. Why the bear? What’s with [...]

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 [...]

Shadows & Light

February 1, 2009

This weekend I took off for Nashville to meet that Matt guy up for a concert in a cave.  Yep. A concert in a cave. (That’s me before the show started.)  Needless to say, it was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever experienced. I’m sure Matt will give the concert, the band, and [...]

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 [...]

Breakfast in bed.

October 28, 2008

My father loved bringing my mother breakfast in bed. He would also clean the dishes after dinner – every single night, even when he cooked. When he’d come home from work he’d seek her out, “Where is my beautiful wife?” “Upstairs Dad,” we’d sigh. When he found her he’d scoop her up into a sweet [...]

Beam me up, Scottie: To Denmark Please!

August 8, 2008

Two weeks from today – I’ll be here. With this guy… And now it’s starting to set in. I haven’t let myself think about it. I try not to get excited about things. Instead, I stay cool, calm … and then just a few days before it happens – I freak out.
