“I Love You, Too”

When my son leaves for visitation weekend, a part of me dies for a few days. I go through the motions, I live and laugh and do all the things I normally do… but part of me is missing.  If your child has ever gone away for a while, you know what I mean. You’re […]

The Scar Remains

When you’ve been wounded, it takes awhile for the pain to subside.  And even when the pain is gone, a scar remains… a thin reminder of the hell you survived, a jagged line of what once was and what will be.  It never goes away, though it might fade a little with the passing of […]

So Much to Say

I have so much to say. I have so little time to say it in. When you think that your life is moving along at a perfect speed, something always changes. Something always takes you by surprise, changing your footsteps, changing your direction, changing your frame of mind. My frame of mind has been changed. […]

Three Days

I have to admit that I was dreading the three day weekend We had no plans, no where to go, no play dates scheduled or set up and nothing new to play with. We’re on a budget that was on its last leg so that ruled out trips to, well, anywhere that cost money, and […]

Comfortably Single

I know a lot of divorced moms. It’s a  bonus of writing about, well, BEING a divorced mom and mostly I’ve really enjoyed getting to know these amazing women and celebrating in their accomplishments post marriage.  But one of the drawbacks has been that thing that all women deal with… competition. Only with most of […]

It Really Does Hurt Me More

Lately I’ve felt a bit like a tightrope walker, balancing on the thin line that hovers between playmate and parent.  I’m tediously balanced, by virtue of being a single parent to a single child, and at any minute I feel as though I’m going to topple down into some decidedly evil pit of snakes or […]

I am Stronger than I Thought.

“I am stronger than I thought.” That’s what the T-shirt said, when I pulled it out of the packing envelope; the one sent to me by my sweet friend in Tennessee.  The note enclosed said it was for completing my first half marathon and there were running shoes just below the quote.  I put it […]

You Give A Blonde a Blender…

**FAIR WARNING: THIS MIGHT BE GROSS** So. If you don’t follow my Facebook page or my Twitter feed, you have maybe been wondering why I haven’t had anything to say in a week.  You may have thought “Oh, she must be so busy” or maybe “She’s happy and has nothing to say” or more than […]

Everything.

My phone went off at 6:30 this morning, belting out the new “alarm tone” meant to encourage and entice me to face my days with a smile… “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor.  I lay in bed for the length of a good snooze button, flipping through emails that arrived over night and quickly scanning […]

The Keeper

When I first found out I was getting divorced, I spent many hours listening to Coldplay’s “Fix You” and “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol.  I would just sit and stare at the wall, letting my parents care for J and just listen, choking on my tears.  I must have played both of those songs at […]
