Happy (almost) Holidays!

Tomorrow is the first day of December, which means, among other things, that ABC Family’s 25 days of Christmas will begin.  And that means 25 days worth of amazingly cheesy movies, which makes me happy. A lot of things make me happy in December… my birthday, Christmas, spending time with family and hopefully friends… and […]

Never Underestimate the Power of a Promise

I had a rough weekend and got some pretty heart breaking news on Sunday. I thought long and hard about writing it all out here but ultimately, I decided to keep it private, to keep it close to me and turn it over and over like a coin, examining it from every side and wondering […]


When Linda moved in to the white two story house off of a busy street in Greensboro, North Carolina, she certainly didn’t expect that her entire life would change.  She and her husband were just looking for a place to call home, a place to raise a family and grow roots.  What she found instead, […]

Living the Not-So-Single Life

I have spent time being jealous of my ex-husband’s current situation.  Yes, I have J, and for that I am eternally thankful… but there have been moments when I’ve thought that just once I’d like the opportunity to go out and have fun without paying a babysitter or worrying about the phone ringing.  Just once, […]

The Single Post-Divorce

When I was single before, I was a whole me with the hope for an other. I wasn’t part of a person, or part of a heart.  I was a complete and total person, with scars, yes, but still whole.  I was still whole, even when it hurt. But the single after divorce is so […]

Happy Thanksgiving

I thought for a moment about taking down last night’s post. I thought about erasing those thoughts and feelings from the world wide web and pretending they never happened.  But then, that wouldn’t be very honest of me, and I think you all know that you can expect brutal honesty here.  So I’m leaving it […]

Giving Thanks is Hard This Year

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. And to be perfectly honest, though there are many things I should be thankful for this year, I’m not feeling very thankful.  Instead of thinking about the things that are going right, my brain is soaked and sopping with all that has gone wrong. I’m lonely. I’m alone. And as much as […]

Filling the Empty Spaces

So I have this idea… and I’m not sure if it’s a good idea or a bad idea; I think that will depend on you.  There are a lot of people going through a tough time this holiday with starting over or starting again after divorce.  And this holiday season? Well, it just plain sucks.  […]

There is Peace in the Stillness… or so they say…

I don’t want to complain.  There are people who have it way worse than I do as the holidays creep steadily closer.  There are people who do not know how they will feed their children or clothe themselves as the winter months are upon us.  There are people facing the loss of a child or […]

Just a Little Red Bird…

Let’s forget yesterday even happened. Let’s just move right on into Monday, with grace and elegance and the strength of Sampson pre-haircut.  Let’s just move right along. Because it’s Thanksgiving week and that means it’s five weeks to Christmas and my GOD I love Christmas.  Over the weekend, our office’s decorator came like a little […]
