Changes coming……

I have been thinking (something I am assured is dangerous when done frequently) that I want to come back to my blog and start talking with all of you great people again.

But, I don’t want to keep the title of my blog, nor the theme that I have now.

It has taken me a little over a year to realize that I am so much more than the woman that started this blog.

I am so much more than a woman that was discarded by a man that didn’t deserve me in the first place.

I am a woman who has found her strength. And, in finding that, I have found my voice.

I am no longer the person that keeps her opinions to herself and doesn’t have anything to say because it might upset someone.

I am no longer someone who is worried about rocking the boat.

I am no longer The Forgotten Wife.

That woman is gone.

I’m not sorry to see her go. She was here for me when I needed her. She was here for me to get through the shock of what I was going through at the time.

But, we all change.

For those of you that know me, or are friends with me on Facebook, you know that I am a huge Doctor Who fan. Just this Christmas, for the special, Doctor Who said something that I think applies here:

“But times change, and so must I….we all change. When you think about it, we are all different people, all throughout lives, and that’s OK, that’s good! You’ve gotta keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be.”

So, I’ve decided that it’s time to move on. Time to be someone other than The Forgotten Wife.

But I will never forget her. I will never forget who I was. Because those that forget the past are doomed to repeat it.

And I will never be her again.


So, faithful readers (both of you), be on the look out for new changes and new things from this little blog of mine. Be ready to disagree and to have intelligent conversations. Be ready to read about my hijinks and foibles and (fair warning) my sex life.

Be ready.

Because a new woman is coming.

I’ll even give Stormageddon a run for his money.

New posts and theme coming soon……

  1. Sounds like Forgotten wife but Found Woman. Good for you! One request though, if you must post about your sex life, please explain things clearly for all those like me who’ve forgotten ( or never knew), maybe just a few directional arrows and a dictionary might do the trick.
    xxx Massive Hugs and good luck with the changes xxx

    • I’ll be honest, I didn’t. I cried a little during his last monologue, but there was so much going on during the show. I bawled like a baby when Amy and Rory left, I sobbed at the end of “Vincent and the Doctor,” but the regen didn’t hit me that hard. Maybe because I had had time to get used to the idea? I’ll admit to shedding a few tears when Amy came and said, “Goodnight, Doctor.” That was so sweet. Now, when 10 left? Oh, good Lord! That was a box of Kleenex!!! I can’t wait to see Capaldi in the part! I have a feeling he’ll be pretty awesome!

      • I was holding it together until Amy’s appearance mind you I think I had cried enough tears for the whole year during his goodbye with River in The Name of the Doctor lol

      • Oh goodness! How could I forget when he said goodbye to River????? Yes! I absolutely bawled at that! There is some talk of bringing her back to the show. I would love to see her with Capaldi. I think they would be amazing together! I miss River! She was so much fun ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. good to have you back——you inspired me and were there when I was in so much pain—-love that you do not have the idiot to worry about—-I am a bit luckier than you,i never speak to my ex,never text him ,never see him when he picks/drops kids——-I told him I never wanted to speak/see him again——he tells my mom when something is important—I have had no contact with him for4 years—–cool right—–I want no inter-action,,,,just the check—–my story and yours are so alike—-he did marry her and according to my kids he is very happy,but wishes to have been able to stay friends with me—-wtf???? well that is never going to happen—–once again so happy you will be back

    • Thank you so much for your kind words. And I am so glad that I was able to help you with my words. It sounds like you are doing really well! Isn’t it weird how they want to be friends after they treat us so badly, not realizing that the scars that we carry are ones that we may not display on a daily basis for the world to see, but that we are constantly and consistently aware of their presence? Why would we want to stay friends with someone who is so toxic? Makes no sense to me. But, then again, we are talking about two men that left totally awesome women (you and me!) to be with other, not so awesome (and, most probably, not good looking) women. Now that I thin about it in that context, it makes a bit more sense ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad to be back! Thanks again!

  3. I have had a similar journey and have totally reinvented myself and loving my life and who I am, for the first time ever. I too will never forget where I came from but will never be that person again. I can’t wait for your future posts. Good on you!
