Finding the Truth

When my husband told me he wanted a divorce, I was shocked.  And I say that with full honesty.  There was nothing leading up to that moment that made me believe he was anything less than satisfied with our life just as it was.  Sure, we fought.  Yes, we had problems. But as recently as […]


My attorney sends me emails entitled “R v R.”  As though the letters are at war.  As though we stand as equals, squared up to duel it out in the American justice system.  As though we are the same person… “R.”  Both of us “R.” We were the same once, I think.  We had the same dreams […]

Single Successes

This has been a week of struggles for me between the foot injury and the shot records and everything else.  But along the way, I still had some good moments, because who are we kidding? Every week is 7 days long… they can’t be ALL bad.  So here’s what was great about this week for […]

Ramblings, Whinings, and a few choice words

When we lived in Savannah, J was pretty much sick constantly.  We went in for his 18 month check up, but he couldn’t get any of his shots because he had a fever at the time.  I didn’t think much about it at the time because, well, my life was about to get turned upside […]

No Avoiding It Now

The idea of divorce comes at you hard and fast.  A freight train, barreling over your heart and mind, leaving you little time to shield yourself, little time to run for cover, and little time to prepare.  The first few weeks are like one long nightmare.  You wade through your days, trudging amidst the thick […]

Up and At ‘Em!

I have a stress fracture on my right foot.  Surprisingly, this is not directly related to the stress levels in my life… wouldn’t that be something? If you got all stressed out and your bones just started breaking? But no, this is related to the fact that I have not been as active I should […]

What I’ve Learned

The past two and a half months have been a learning curve for me.  I’ve done things I never thought I’d have to do.  I’ve said things I never thought I’d say, signed things I never thought I’d sign, and become things I never thought I’d become.  But mostly, I’ve just been learning.  I’ve learned […]

Making Changes

A while ago, I asked for suggestions to change things up for J and I.  And boy did you guys deliver. In the post, I said I’d pick my favorites and then we’d vote on what I’d do… but once I read all the suggestions, I decided it was better for me to read them […]

Single Successes

What a week this has been!  I’m not too proud to say that it started off with tears and will probably end with tears, but in the middle? In the middle I had some pretty big successes.  So without further ado, here’s my list of what rocked this week:   1.  I hung three sets […]

A Day in the Life

At 2:20 in the morning, a plaintive mourn echoes through the house “Mooooommmmmmma?” I’m up. I shuffle to the nursery to pick up J and snuggle him close to me.  “Momma bed?” He asks, his head laid against my shoulder.  Sure, kid, I’ll take you to momma’s bed… anything for sleep.  I shuffle back to my room.  Laying […]
