Splitting the Seam

Had you asked me six months ago if I thought I was a smart girl, I would have told you no but I would have meant yes.  I would have rolled my eyes a little, maybe.  I would have probably made a smart aleck comment about how I was educated but not smart… but deep […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Getting it Done

I’ve spent so much time over the past two months wondering how on Earth I’m going to accomplish everything I want to accomplish along with everything I need to accomplish while being a single mom/attorney/crazy-haired weirdo.  I’ve posted about it.  I’ve thought about it.  I’ve wondered about how to “do it all” without losing my […]

Raging against the Machine

Every now and again… like maybe every third day or perhaps every third hour or, okay twice a minute, I become fully consumed by what can only be called the ragiest of rages.  We’re talking a rage that results in me wishing I could claw the skin off of “someone’s” face and play banjo with their […]

Borrowed Time

Driving home from my first day of work, I felt like there was someone sitting in the back seat holding a ticking time bomb to the back of my head.  I could hear the ticking as clearly as if I were a child again, pressing my head to the large gold wrist watch on my […]

The Reluctant Not-so-Super Not-so-Heroic Me

Tomorrow, all of this becomes real. I know that I haven’t lived in the same house with my “husband” since the beginning of April and these things should have been beaten into my brain by now,  but tomorrow means that all of this wasn’t just a bad dream.  Tomorrow I will get up, shower, get […]
