The Post Where I Show You My Ex


Since my ex left, I have made an effort to push myself through uncomfortable situations just so that I could prove to myself that I could do it. Details withheld (I really don’t feel like being scrutinized by the trolls) last year the kids and I were offered the opportunity to go on an all

I Just Don’t Even Know Where To Start


“I mean she’s really pretty and all man, but divorced with two kids? You could totally do better than that. You don’t need all that baggage in your life.” “You can do better than that” meaning that he, Piano Man,could do better than me, according to his best friend. I wasn’t supposed to overhear him

Back When I Was A Cutter…..


Look at me, I’m finally getting around to answering more of the questions you guys posed when I said you could ask me anything you wanted in the comments section of the post “Here’s Your Chance!”  I’m going to tackle two questions with one answer today, because I’m savvy like that. I’m also nerdy and

I’m Going To See My Mother


I run on a near daily basis. Miles upon miles fly by under my feet and while I run for exercise, I also run for a deeper purpose. I run because it is a very controlled way to deal with the anxieties of my past. For a long time, running was the only coping mechanism

Mind If I Pop You With My Stick?


As you all know, my life has been undergoing some major changes recently and it has been nothing short of stressful. This was a long few weeks. A really, really, long few weeks.

My Life Is Completely Unrealistic


When did life get so complicated? Don’t get me wrong, it’s always been complicated, but when did it get so overwhelming? To be honest I’ve had a few rough weeks. Looking back it seems as if ever since the surgery I’ve been struggling with the footing of life. The complications that I had after hemorrhaging

Damn Straight I’m Gonna Wear It


A couple weeks ago both of my kids got the stomach flu. I’m telling you, there aren’t many things that I rank higher in the “hellish experience” department than being a single working mother of two young children with the stomach flu. Missing work (i.e. a paycheck) so that I can spend my day covered

Nothing More Than A Burden


These last two years have put me through so many life changing emotions that when I sit back and think about it, it feels unreal. The biggest emotion that I have been struggling with, as you guys have seen here in previous posts, has been making myself a priority. I’ve still really been struggling with

In The Two Years Since You Left


Feb 11th, 2014 Dear ex husband, Its been two years since I watched you walk out of my house, never once looking back at the faces pressed against the window. It’s been two years since you left me as an only parent, with no job, no support, no help, and no hope. It’s been two years

How It All Began


I just looked at my traffic reader that tells me how many people are reading this blog. Someone come resuscitate me. First off, let me tell you, I am ASTOUNDED at how this blog has grown. I was literally laying in my bed one October morning, three days after I had been raped in my
