A Mending of Hearts

I had my first heartbreak when I was a senior in college. I remember calling and calling when it was finally over, wondering what went wrong and how to fix it… isn’t that the way with first heartbreaks? No matter what age?  Looking back, I shudder when I think about how lost I was for […]

Back to Your Regularly Scheduled Programming…

Well then. That was… therapeutic?  Helpful?  Ridiculously long-winded and semi-cathartic? Yes, all of the above.  I spent the better part of a week unpacking the heavy bags of divorce and stacking them out for you all to read and judge.  I poured out my heart and soul and angst and tears and then it was finished.  This morning, I […]

Being Neighborly

When I lived in Savannah, we had an apartment with soft gray carpets.  Although the floor was never really clean, due to my ex’s opinion that “cleaning the table” meant scraping crumbs onto the floor, it always sort of looked clean.  You couldn’t see the clumps of AJ hair or the tracked in dirt.  There […]

Learning to Love the Fence

I’ve gotten in a bad habit lately of letting my dog out in the mornings to go to the bathroom.  In and of itself, that sounds like a reasonable way to start his day, but the fact is, I don’t have a fenced in yard.  Most days, my sweet older dog does his business in […]

Step One: Throw Away Expectations

My first step in the process of choosing happy is apparently choosing to let go of expectations. I have a lot of expectations. I have a lot of things I want, a lot of things I believe should happen, and a lot a lot a LOT of plans.  And today, I woke up all starry-eyed […]

Breakfast with J

J didn’t sleep well last night and neither did I.  Granted, Husband took care of J all night, but I kept waking up hearing either J crying or weird sounds from my dreams.  At one point, I was convinced I heard a woman screaming as though she were being attacked.  I jumped out of bed […]

Small Stuff you SHOULD sweat

Sometimes it’s the little things that matter the most. You know what I mean, right? If you’re anything like me, you do. I don’t do compliments. I never have taken praise very well because it always seems disingenuous. What I do handle well are little sidebar comments that are said without the speaker ever even […]

Don’t worry, be Happy!

My blog has been all down in the dumps for the past few days and I’m sorry for that. In an effort to revitalize myself, I’m going to post the top 10 reasons why my life rocks big fat piles of awesomeness. 1. J has seriously fat thighs… and I LOVE them. They are the […]
