I Have a Past

  Steve told me this evening that he was upset about seeing a picture on my computer of a man in a bathtub.  I thought about it and couldn’t remember what he was talking about.  I know I never took a picture of a guy in a bathtub before.  He told me to go through …

Second Date

Steve and I have been eagerly anticipating our second date all week.  Friday dragged along at a snail’s pace and I thought 5 p.m. would never arrive.  We were randomly texting each other how many hours and minutes were left until we got to see each other. When 5 p.m. rolled around, I flew out …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Love Languages

The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman is a wonderful book that has helped me connect more closely with my children.  Since they are so young, I try to make sure I cover the bases since their Love Languages (LL) seem to change as they grow. 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 …
