Anger

Who the fuck do you think you are?  Do you think you are the only one experiencing pain and suffering?  Do you think only your story is worth being told and listened to? Not too long ago, I dipped back into Chump Lady months after I threw a bitch-fit and decided not to ever go…

Shit Situation

“I don’t want to be viewed as a victim,” she says, “because I don’t think I am. I am a woman in a shit situation, but it’s not unique.” ……………”I’m a woman in a shit situation, but it’s not unique.” Tell me about it.

Shit

  On the Today show this morning, the topic of driving while texting came up and the story covered how people who text and/or use cell phones while driving are 8 times more likely to cause a crash.  You know what I say? These people are selfish horrible human beings.  Nothing is on that damn…

Maintaining Boundaries

This is called “taking care of yourself.”  What a savage. If you cannot read the tweet it says: “My sister just got in an argument with her boyfriend in HER car while driving home and literally pulled over…took the keys…left him in HER car and got an UBER.  I’m screaming.  this is the pinnacle of…

Anxiety/Panic and Making A Fool Out of Myself

According to this website, I probably had an anxiety attack instead of a panic attack, although my physical symptoms at that moment were more aligned with those of a panic attack.  Both have been foreign to me, even though I am familiar with anxiety somewhat.  Actually, I believe it is in my DNA to be…

All Is Not Fair With Infidelity

I hate how needy I can be.  I also hate the blatant sexism that I see on “Infidelity” blogs.  Of course women can and have been cheaters.  However, I’m willing to bet that more men are cheaters than women are.  What makes it even more devastating is how more men are the breadwinners, thus, leaving…

The ex-husband and his syphilitic sidepiece are at it again. He sent our daughter an email with only, “Contempt- ‘when you sell household appliances.’  Next week is going to be interesting.”  Actually, our divorce decree states that I cannot remove appliances that typically come with a house sale.  What he is referring to is a…

Most Homewreckers Are Village Bicycles

The ease of familiarity of place and time is not at your liberty. There can be some drawbacks with being too familiar however, some major drawbacks. Often, those…

“So Much Wasted Time”

Supposedly, David Cassidy’s last words were ,“So much wasted time.” I feel time, acutely.  Every minute of every hour of every day, I worry about the time.  I worry if I did enough each hour to prepare each day for the day that we can move forward.  I worry if I did enough each day…

Wishing Your Ex-Husband Dead

When I laughed again this morning at an article and its comments (mostly the comments) my daughter said she had thought I was just tired last night when I couldn’t breathe from laughing so long and hard over the same comments. Honestly, I hadn’t had that good of a laugh in a long time. The…
