Purity Is Not Picky

Apparently, Purity does not have any morals, standards, and does not consider consequences. I really hate Purity sometimes. Purity has been prowling lately.  Since Fluffy was integrated, she has nothing to temper her.  She has nothing to hold her back – no other presence to take up space in there.  She has full reign when …

Huge Boundary Crossing

I have an open door policy with my friends.  My really close friends are invited to just walk into my home if the door is open.  It usually takes a few months for me to extend this invitation to my friends, after plenty of time getting to know them and learning to trust them. Arcadia …

It’s Time To Be Honest With Myself

I’m going to start out by saying I don’t like this one bit.  I do not like analyzing the feelings I have for Luke.  I was happy when I was saying it was just a FWB thing and that there was no danger of it ever being anything else. Well, I know I need to …

I Miss My Mom and Other Not So Fun Stuff

We had Sunday brunch again today.  I love our new tradition of having Hannah and her kids over each Sunday.  Today, I was reading old posts and thinking about the FOO (Family of Origin).  I didn’t realize what I was doing until I noticed that I did not feel well.  My stomach was definitely protesting …

A Dream

I had a dream last night that I remember very vividly this morning. I got home from work and found that Bubba had moved back in.  I wasn’t living in my house, it was a big house and his stuff was everywhere.  I was not happy about it but I didn’t want to say anything …

Jewelry

I was driving home for lunch today and I started thinking about all the jewelry I own.  I have some truly beautiful pieces.  I have rings, necklaces, and earrings that haven’t seen the light of day in years.  Before the divorce all I wore was a small pair of gold earrings and my wedding band.  …

I Hurt Myself – Comfort Eating

I did it to myself last night.  I ate dinner.  I had some left-over stew.  It was good and filling and I was content.  Then I decided to make some baked oatmeal for the kids for breakfast this week. When it came out of the oven, I ended up eating two pieces.  It tasted so …

The Three Musketeers – Back in Action

I’ve had to pull The Three Musketeers out of retirement. It is becoming more and more clear that Luke and I are definitely not in the same place.  I meant to send that e-mail but I never did.  I’m on the merry-go-round and it is starting to make me entirely too dizzy. I mentioned to …

1-23-13 Guest Post by Amanda

I used to have this really judgmental attitude about abused women. They were weak, uneducated, and overall quite likely to be pathetic. How can you stay after he’s put you in the hospital? It boggled my mind. The irony is that all the while I was being judgmental, I was one. An abused woman, that …

Hating Bubba

I don’t hate Bubba.  At least not all the time.  For the most part, about 90% of the time, I have no feelings about Bubba at all.  He is just no longer a part of my life.  I don’t wish him ill, I just want him to leave me alone to raise my kids. Then …
