Just me

About 2 and half years ago, I started this blog. I started this blog as a woman who had had the rug pulled out from underneath her. A woman whose marriage was dissolving and there was nothing I could do about it.

I was crushed.

I was hurt.

I was scared.

Not anymore.

So, instead of a blog about my divorce and issues that come with that, this blog is now about my life as a strong, single mom.

Well, a single mom, anyway πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoy my writing. And I love to hear from you! Leave me a comment πŸ™‚

  1. Divorce is a beast that can’t be truly understood until one endures it. My heart goes out to you. I endured a rather bumpy divorce after 13 years of marriage and learned a lot…..granted a lot of how NOT to do things, but still learned.

  2. Intrigued by the title of your blog, I finally got around to checking out the ‘about’ section. I’ve been on the other side (male) of divorce twice and all I can say is that, though painful in the extreme, they are the best things that can ever happen to you. Do not let the pain drag you down. You are a woman in her prime, free, writing and intelligent. Revel in your time.

    As for your boys and their trying of you, picture them as young eaglets perched on the edge of the nest, the only home they’ve known for their entire lives (figuratively) and imagine their antics/behavior as them trying their wings, raising dust and feathers and bits of bone and other debris. You are the mother eagle and right to be at or close to your limits in this regard. When things get too bad, just threaten to kick them out of the nest and see how quickly they settle down. Sounds awful, but it works. You have a right to live in an orderly nest.

    Take each day as it comes and know that there are good men out there somewhere. Breathe deep, look at the sun shining through the trees and enjoy. I wish you well.



    • Thank you. Things really are wonderful in my life and I feel so much better now that I dumped my 215 lb baggage. Sometimes it’s trying, but I know I can get through it. As for the kiddos, there are enough breaks in between that I think I’m doing alright. I appreciate your words of wisdom as someone who has been there and done that. As for the good men, unless one drops into my lap, I’m not looking around for one right now. Just enjoying my new found freedom! πŸ™‚

  3. Hi,
    I heard through the grapevines that there is talk about vibrators on this blog? Did I ever tell anyone that my son left teeth mark on one of ours?

  6. I’ve been where you are now and I remember the pain. But believe me, you’ll come out of it a stronger person. Here’s a quote that always helps me during difficult times, and I fully believe it:

    The wound is the place where the Light enters you. ~ Rumi

    Hang in there, and good for you for blogging and writing!

    • Thank you so much. I’m getting there, I know. But, being a naturally impatient person, I want it to all be better NOW πŸ™‚ Patience is a virtue…hehe

      Thank you so much for coming by and commenting. I truly enjoy your writing!

  9. I would love to see you write about books that have challenged you, shaped you, and “grown ” you in ways you hadn’t previously anticipated…and not just the classics.

    • I have actually thought about writing about that, Mrs. B, some of my favorite books. Most of them won’t be classics, actually! πŸ™‚ I have continued to read a lot since I left high school, devouring anything I could get my hands on. I actually fell in love with Willa Cather, her use of words to paint a vision of what the protagonist was seeing. She paints prettier pictures with words than some painters I have seen! My favorite authors, now, are ones that have strong female protagonists. I will definitely do that for you, ma’am. It would be my pleasure! Oh, and by the way, I’m trying hard to upload those pictures for you!

  10. Check out the Father Tim series by Jan Karon; there are about 8, and while they are not deeply philosophical, they reinforce Christian/humanitarian values and point out that people who lead lives based upon them will truly have immortality in that they affect positively the lives of all those around them. Send me your email so we can communicate other than on your blog.
