Raising a Child…. financially

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 […]

The Last Married Easter

March 22, 2008

I don’t remember why, but the x decided he was not going to spend Easter with the family. We had plans for the 3 (me, him, my daughter) to go to his parents for Easter, where all of his siblings would be with their families.  My guess would be that he did not feel like […]

Full Disclosure when Dating?

March 20, 2008

Sorry for disappearing…. I think I’m back… I hope I’m back. Life got in the way, it was overwhelming for a while. With the exception of being sick and a bit of travel all the overwhemness is still there, I’m just learning to deal with it, better…. one eruption at a time.   On to my […]

Musical Inspiration – Taking off this Pain

February 4, 2008

The first time I heard this song, I completely “got it”. When I was trying to decide if I was going to stay married…. or take back control of my life… I used to play games with my ring. I’d turn it around so that the wedding ring was on the outside when I knew I was […]

Pretty Pictures

January 15, 2008

Have you ever met someone who had the perfect house, the perfect car, dressed nice, not to the 9s, but nice, every day? Things appeared just right! I’ve known many people like this. I’ve even lived with people like this. I was becoming one of them. It’s scary to think that. Luckily I can say […]

Sunday Scribbling – The Date

January 11, 2008

Sometimes you just have to do things you really want to do, alone. Your friends aren’t available, or don’t have the same interest as you do, so rather than stay home, for another night, you venture out, to a new place, an unknown place, all by yourself. To see, to hear, to be among the […]

Remembering N

January 8, 2008

N and I met about 10 years ago. We met at work, he came in as a contractor on one of the projects I was on. We became instant friends. We’d sit and talk for hours. Because he started early in the day, we’d often have breakfast and lunch together and since he got off […]
