My Husband Sucks At Bowling


    With October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, much of my time has been taken up by nonprofit events and speaking engagements, so I apologize for not having a “real” post ready this week. But what I can do, is catch you up the articles that I have written elsewhere, and also fill you

You Are Never Going To Believe This


************************ Heeeelllllooooo everyone! My gosh, WHERE IS THE TIME GOING? I feel like these last few months have just run over me; some great, other parts not-so-great, and a few moments have just been insane. Can we talk about “insane,” for a few minutes here? Because here is something that I cannot even wrap my

Happy 4th of July! I hope that all of my American friends had a wonderful holiday! My holiday was spent working at a concert beer tent, with the rest of my nonprofit board, and taking the kids to our local fireworks festival.  It was great! After that, we spent the day recovering in a friend’s

This Is How We Roll…


If you remember from my last post, “Don’t Tell Me I’m Losing My Son,” I was having a difficult time finding joy amongst The Boy Child’s complicated health situation. I felt like I was swimming, and swimming, and I wasn’t getting anywhere, except closer to the bottom of the pool. But, if you also recall,

** BIG CHANGE **


Happy Friday! “I’m so glad I just have a plain head again” the Boy Child said tonight in reference to having the EEG wires removed, and I couldn’t agree more! That extended EEG was rough, and his poor head head blistered and welted from something they used on him. And today, by the time most

So It Ends, And Then It Begins


Happy New Year!!! Is it just me, or was 2016 really weird? I mean it doesn’t compare to the year my husband disappeared and my entire life exploded, but I have to say, this year was a close second. Or am I missing something and do other people also routinely find their “missing” former spouses

I Felt REALLY High


************** Hey everyone! I’m sorry it’s been a little quiet around here. As many of you probably know, October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and as the founder of a DV organization, October tends to go by in a blur of awareness events, meetings, and speaking engagements, and this year has proved to be no

Well, That Never Happened


So I’ve been attempting and failing to get a new blog post out for DAYS now, and I’m finally waving the white flag. Between The Boy Child getting taken down by the stomach flu, The Girl Child getting hit in the face at daycare and needing stitches, a bunch of year end work that needed

Sorry I’m Late


  Sorry, I’ve been lazy, so here’s a post that has been building up in my file folder for two months now and I just haven’t gotten around to publishing it. I have however, gotten enough emails from readers asking “why haven’t you posted any of the free weekend activities that you guys do?” to

  • But, Instead March 5, 2019
    Yesterday was long. Actually, the last few weeks have been a bit stressful, because you know, life. My husband was in a serious car accident, that miraculously left him uninjured, however my car was completely totaled. Do you guys remember that blue car with the racing stripes I got as a single mom? I’m going […]
  • Seven Years Of Abandonment February 12, 2019
    Seven years ago today, my ex left. Seven. Years. It’s weird, how time moves. There are days when I think of him, and it feels like just yesterday he was still around. Like I could walk around the corner at the grocery store, and see a different husband standing by our cart. Or I could […]
  • I Don’t Always Fight In Ikea, Except For When I Do. January 8, 2019
    She came looking for a fight, so she got one. A few weeks ago I found myself standing in a tile shop, searching for tile to be used in our new kitchen back splash. We hadn’t yet closed on the house, but once we did, The Guy and I were going to try to bang […]
