Non-Divorce Opinions

Let me share two non-divorce opinions. First, after holding my tongue for years, YEARS because women who I have loved and respected have loved and desired the following product, I must speak on now. Vera Bradley products are ugly.  It amazes me the loyalty these ugly bags get from seemingly rational women. I truly missed…

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…

Apartment Living: Mug Rack

Before I got distracted with the rant that ended up being my Apartment Living post, I was attempting to highlight the little positive things that I’ve been experiencing from being completely in charge of my living space. Although I still do not have my alimony (It looks like he is not going to pay a…

Age Discrimination

Oh shut up, Liz Ryan. There is a lot of fear in the working world these days. Older workers may feel neglected or pushed aside in favor of younger, sprightlier workers. Age discrimination is a big problem for folks aged 50 or older and even some people in their forties. People in fear tend to…

Apartment Living

Adulterer Tax

For many people 42 means the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything else.  That is, if you are a fan of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. To others, it is the amount of the Visa gift card given to a sidelined teenage-son from an insensitive asshole.   How or why would the amount be…

Alimony and Wage Garnishment

My divorce was final in September 2017. Although it was stated in the divorce decree that I am to receive alimony each week, I have yet to receive one red cent. Here it is going on February 2018. I knew this would happen. That is why I refused to accept any settlement unless wage garnishment…

The Big Lie

  One thing you should not do after a time of someone else’s crisis is not assert that you would have helped if only someone would have asked or if you would have known.  You shouldn’t say this because more than likely you will be lying. Most people with a crisis looming do ask.  Many…
