Day 10 of 365

Things are getting back to normal!  Calls, calls, calls and more calls; however, this is what we/he’s been waiting for.  Normally, I feel a titch guilty when the phone rings and I know he has to brave the elements, whereas I get to stay snug as a bug; however, after more…

Day 9 of 365

Friday, well, as we return to the norm, this is the first Friday of that norm.  I’m excited, yet, apprehensive.  As I learn that absence makes the heart grown fonder, I need to realize that I am still somewhat plagued by out of sight, out of mind.  Things never really…

Day 8 of 365

Sometimes I need to get back to Claire. I so enjoy being the caregiver; however, despite my willingness to do so without expectation it still takes something out of me. I compare this to Motherhood. I love my son and when he was young, I had to do a lot…

The Interview

Well, I watched The Interview.  I must admit that there were several parts that had me in stitches, every once in a while total juvenile antics just get to me – The Interview was full of them; however, Monty Python type blood spurts NEVER were a favorite with projectile vomiting…

Day 1 of 365

Happy New Year!  I did stay up to ring in the New Year; however, not necessarily by choice…but, the safety of those I love and care for far exceeds a few missed hours of slumber.  Luckily, they made it home safely and were snug in bed shortly after 2:30 AM….

2015 – Still Alive!

I hear the faint sound of fireworks on this frigid night….while my beloved is sound asleep. I’m awake awaiting a call from those who chose to go out tonight.  I remember the desire to socialize on this night; however, I truly enjoyed my Chinese leftovers and several episodes of SVU.  OK, not…

Questions

Forgiveness – easy to ask for – perhaps, yet, hard to give.  I find myself in a third person situation; I’m not seeking forgiveness, yet, I want him to forgive her, so that perhaps we/he can move forward.  I should keep my eyes on my own paper as that is the only ‘paper’…

Wake Up!

I’ve recently come across several videos showing Police Officers stopping motorists and giving gifts. This is wonderful; however, I want to be REAL CLEAR – they DID NOT just start doing this in the wake of Ferguson or NY…. in fact, aside from the $100 or Secret Santa things… the…

Clean & Pristine

I’ve always found great interest in what makes others tick.  Where their passions lie many times will give you insight into who they are as a person overall. One’s interest in cars could easily be compared to another’s love of fishing and so on.  It’s not really the same; however,…

When Your Rock Becomes A Pebble

It’s near impossible for a woman to rely on another without looking needy.  It goes without saying that we, as people need one another in different capacities; however, let’s really look at this: When getting to know someone you have that excitement period that literally has no time limit; however,…

Tough As An Egg, Sharp As A Ball This is the Theme of My Dating Life Y’all

All kidding aside I’ve taken a moment or many to think about where I am and why it is that on most weekends I am spending time at home, alone with my puppies. Yes, I want to share special moments with one person; however, I find that I desire that…

I’m Still Smoking….

…my electronic cigarette!  While in Chicago this past November my friend JJ, no not, Jimmy Walker…took me to CigNot.  She highly recommended the electronic cigarette.  I had thought about quitting; however, each attempt was, well, unsuccessful.  She was not pushy; however, she knew how wonderful this was and she knew…

Now, I Don’t Want To Talk! (I guess)

Mr. Cute and I have been talking recently; however, days past by without a call or text and in my new approach, I was not driving the ship.  Yet, I felt that I had every right to reach out, check-in – see what, if anything was up.  So I did….

Dating Life – Good; Blog Life – Not So Good

It has become abundantly apparent that this blog was originally created to vent my dating experiences; however, based on recent experiences it has become clear that as I move from the dates of chaos, I have less to write about.  I definitely want to scream from the mountain tops as…

If We’re Not Serious – Am I Kidding Myself?

It’s hard to put into words what has recently come to light; however, a blog is the perfect place in which to try. Although the word serious can take on many levels of interpretation, the use of the word in regard to personal relationships is what I am writing about…

When Push Comes to Shove, In Love

It had been on my mind; however, was it the person or the action that caused me angst?  When I started to go into it… it became evident that I was not looking at the person, I was recalling the action of another.  Shame on me!  I try to keep…

Living Small

There are big moments in our life, where all we can do is ‘live small’… almost microscopic.  Sure, we’ll pick up, join in and get with the program; however, in certain situations and for undefined amounts of time, there is validity in just pulling back, taking stock. If you’re a…
