If a Heart Breaks Online, Does Anybody Care?

No one drops by to make you a cup of tea when you lose your imaginary boyfriend.

Orion’s Belt

Well I did it. I fell. Into the abyss I'd been fighting. Leapt, actually. Free fell. Fell freely. Phoenix in flames. Checked myself into the hospital on December 8, 2014 for a month. Exactly what I needed to do. Still may lose my house. May go bankrupt. May whatever. I going in the right direction … Continue reading Orion’s Belt

Cliche walking. Well, sitting, actually.

Friday night. Forty seven year old single mom sitting at the bar drinking wheat beer. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking it's about time I blogged again, right? I used to wake up with fully formed ideas in mind. Middle of the night - you name it. I'd jump up and run to my … Continue reading Cliche walking. Well, sitting, actually.

One more year on the planet.

It's my birthday. I have hung on to this planet as it has hurtled through space, around the sun, whilst spinning on its axis at breakneck speeds, forty-seven times. It's exhausting.

I have always been a supporter of … Continue reading Who left this gift horse on my lawn?

Too Fat for Old Navy

I'm too fat for Old Navy. I thought I was okay. I can go to Old Navy and try on a top, and sometimes it's too big. Sun dresses? Nice price. Pretty, and they fit. Jeans? I live in them. Shorts? Now hang on, just a minute! Apparently, that's stepping over the line. Shorts on … Continue reading Too Fat for Old Navy

A voice for my voice

I have lost my voice lately. Not literally, but importantly. I'm working on a new blog post which will be up soon. In the meantime, I read a post by my friend and former math teacher from IndEC South in Mississauga. He was a legendary rule breaker and bender at a critical time in my … Continue reading A voice for my voice

Collaborate, dammit!

Today's oxymoron is.... Collaborative Divorce. Sounds like a made-up term, doesn't it?  Sounds like a joke.  Not a bad joke.  A really, really funny one.  To me.  Now. Almost two years ago, it sounded wonderful.  Why hadn't I heard of this?  Think of it. Two people get married, have kids, build a life (sort of... … Continue reading Collaborate, dammit!
