The Meeting

I went to a mom’s group meeting last night.  Usually I greatly enjoy these meetings.  I get to hang out with a bunch of like-minded moms and talk about all things kids, babies, and mothering. Last night, we were sitting around having a great conversation when the topic of sex came up.  One woman said …

I Think He Likes Me

Ok, I *know* he likes me!  That’s good because I really like him too. After our date, Steve and I texted a bit more.  He said he’d be up late since he didn’t have to work on Sunday.  I asked if he had Skype or Yahoo IM since it is easier for me to type …

Building a House

Shane, my youngest child, has been having nightmares lately.  I think he’s come in to my bed each night for the past week after having had a nightmare.  I haven’t had the energy to get out of bed and take him back to his, so I’ve just invited him into my bed. This morning we …

Bad Laws – Part 3

As I was getting ready for my date last night, Endellion and I were on Skype and we both discovered a few more Bad Laws that needed rewriting right away. Our main premise is as follows: Our previous relationships were with assholes, and therefore are not indicative of future relationships. Bad Law #12 – My …

Date With Bachelor #3

Steve and I finally went out on a date!  It was two weeks in the making since I had a nasty cold last weekend.  I really didn’t want to take a chance of him getting my germs and sharing with his son.  We text every day and we’ve spoken on the phone a few times. He …

The five love languages are:  Words of Affirmation, Acts …

“You Didn’t Know?”

The other night, I had a complete and total breakdown about Sean.  It was right after he was home for an afternoon with his girlfriend – after that first glimpse of him in what feels like forever. Endellion and I were on Skype and I was sobbing.  I’m finally, finally letting the tears come.  I’m …

Blown Away

I got home for lunch and Sean’s girlfriend’s car was in their driveway again.  I liked it better when he was just gone.  After seeing him the other day with his girlfriend over there, I noticed that his truck was back for a little bit that evening.  Then today he was outside again.  He really …

More Bad Laws

Sean has been gone for a week now.  I strongly suspect he moved in with his girlfriend.  As much as I’ve talked to his mother, Rose, in the past week, I haven’t asked her and I won’t.  I don’t want it getting back to Sean that I’ve asked about him. Today, as I was cooking …

Inspiration

It seems that lately so many people have been coming to me for advice, counsel, and information about domestic violence and I’ve realized that somewhere along the line I’ve become an inspiration to people.  Ok, the only reason I’ve realized this is that all of these people keep telling me that I’m an inspiration. This …
