The Fears Of the Dating World!

This is the first pin I found when I was looking on my Pinterest page this morning.  This also leads back to a very private conversation I was having with a friend the other day after the full force of my impending divorce hit me. I have decided to be the crazy pet lady personally because after almost nineteen years of marriage the thought of going on a date again pretty much terrifies me. I would rather make my way through a demon-infested haunted house than even remotely consider the option of dating.  Now I can hear a few people I know with the cricket sounds behind them because I am also a hopeless romantic... The struggle is real. I know moms who have been shoved back into the dating world feel the same way as well. I mean first, let's go with the fact the last time I dated, I mean really dated I had just hit legal drinking age. Now fast forward 4 more kids later I have just now started working on a confident body image and my self-esteem.  I mean after what I have been

Guess what ladies and gents this is how. (It als

Sometimes Giving Up On Someone Is The Only Option....

Now don't take the title the wrong way because when it comes to my life I am not giving up but when it comes to certain people in my life I am shutting the door that has been held open for much too long.  I had held hope and faith that my soon to be ex-husband would come around and realize what he is doing to me but to our family. I had held faith that I could save my marriage. I spent the last week sick because of my allergies and sinuses and have been barely able to get out of bed. Do you know who took care of me the whole time? Myself and my kids. Every time he would be around there would be nothing but sly remarks and crude comments.  My own son has made the comments that his dad is not acting like a dad should.  That shocked me a bit that my eleven-year-old can see what is right and what is wrong along with my fourteen-year-old but a forty-year-old man can't.  Now you may ask why am I bringing this up? Because I made the mistake that I hope other ladies can learn from.

You Are Special So Follow Those Dreams!

That's right REMEBER THE ABOVE! But seriously I am writing this because of the amount of shaming that goes on.  I am not even talking Mom shaming which is a horrible thing as it is but I am talking shaming in many different aspects. I am actively pursuing my writing and crafting, My Ex is constantly telling me as well as having our teens and his mom saying that I will never make it that it's just a dream that I shouldn't pursue.  Well, I say bull dung to that. My sister-in-law Pam used to joke with me that I should open a food truck that sold nothing but cookies, milk, coffee, and tea. To be honest I have considered it on and off for about six months but then decided I liked my writing and crafting a bit more than baking twenty-four seven.  I am a firm believer in following my dreams and I am doing my best to pursue them regardless of what kind of negative comments I get.  Am I saying no I will not get a real job to support my children and myself of course not! I k

New Writing Adventure!

When you were a kid do you remember the choose your own adventures book? Well, I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and she said she wished there were adult versions of the choose your own adventure books. Why not I need a distraction from the novel I am writing once in a while so I decided to start one.  Why not right? The intro page is up and I am adding the link ==> HERE However, I am giving only one warning this is not a sunshine and roses type of adventure.  The deeper the rabbit hole goes there is a bigger possibility that it will become much darker.  The thing is you can end the book at any moment as well depending on which choice you make. I always liked a good adventure what about you?
