December 14, 2008

What would you do to support your child?    What would you do to avoid supporting your child?   Let me tell you a little “story”.   The x, I believe chooses not to work. It appears to be to much effort for him to work. We’ve been divorced for almost 14 years. In that […]

Responsibilities to the “New Woman”

March 26, 2008

Those red flags fly more easy for some than for others. As I get more wisdom, and have learned to trust my own intuition…. that little voice doesn’t have to scream like it did when I was in my teens or newly divorced and starting to date again.   The last date I had…. in the […]

More Thoughts on Full Disclosure

March 22, 2008

How do you start off a relationship? I’m thinking of the x’s, not mine… and I know that his relationships are not my business, with the exception of how the other person interacts with my child…. you better believe Mama Bear will show up if that person is not good to her. She is old […]

Sunday Scribblings – Fridge Space

February 10, 2008

If I could make my head space, fridge space right now, I’d be a very happy girl… ok.. woman. I so don’t want to grow up, or be responsible. But I have to be, and all the things that are going on, seem like to much. I want to make my head into a fridge space, […]

Friday Fill In #58

February 8, 2008

Friday Fill In’s …. I’m looking forward to sleep… I just don’t know when it will be. The arms of my last, first date is a place I always wanted to visit and haven’t made it there yet. I’ve fallen in love with collecting scrapbook supplies (what they are for… no idea).  Six of one, all of […]

Thursday Thirteen – Things I’ve Learned, Along the Way

February 7, 2008

It’s just as important to give your children roots as it is to give them wings Laughter is the best medicine. Don’t go looking for trouble. If may find you anyways. Looks at what you have, not what you don’t have. No decision is a decision. Sometimes it is letting someone else make one for […]
