Let’s face it, we can all do better as parents, whether it’s human kids or four legged companions. I hadn’t had a dog since I was a young kid, and my 16 year relationship with a narcissistic, spoiled douche didn’t allow me to have a dog. He hated dogs. Luckily he liked cats, albeit only […]

I wake up to the sound of birds on a Saturday morning. I stretch my entire body. You know that morning stretch that’s almost as good as a morning orgasm? Yeah that one. The shades are still closed, but I can tell it’s a beautiful summer day in Maine. I love this state. So many […]

Today marks 6 years of my freedom. On May 17th, 2013, I closed on another house. This was my second home I’ve purchased, but this time was much different. This one was completely on my own. My first home was purchased in 2006 with my boyfriend at the time. A long time. The relationship lasted […]

January 21st marks 2 years since I adopted my girl, Peach. I know it’s cliche, but those 2 years went by so incredibly fast. A lot has happened since then, with both myself and Peach. I’m really a first time dog mom. I had a few black labs as a very little girl, but this […]

After being a prisoner in a relationship spanning close to 2 decades, I shouldn’t be that surprised that I had my mid-life crisis a bit earlier than most. After I left my ex, I had bought another house on my own, and a few months later, started dating for the first time since High School. […]

The holidays are a tough time of year for a lot of people. I say holidays because maybe you don’t celebrate Christmas and that’s fine. I like the word “holiday” because it covers whatever the hell you celebrate. I could care less honestly. I don’t celebrate Christmas any more, at least in the traditional sense. […]

Yup. Tomorrow I turn 39 years old. I’m not sure what significance that has on anything, to be honest. But every year that passes, I tend to reflect on whatever got me here. When I think back on my entire life, it’s in chapters (how cliche!). Childhood, teenage years, then it’s simply pre-relationship and post-relationship. […]

This post is a shout out to all the men and women who are doing it all on their own. Literally. Whether you’re a single parent with no family and friends to really help out in the day to day activities, or even if you’re like me, with fur kids (I hate that term) and […]

These days, my annual visit to the gynecologist is the most action I’ve had in well….quite some time. Full disclosure, I haven’t been with anyone since my last boyfriend (so over a year). I haven’t been on a single date, haven’t sexted (despite one guys attempts), haven’t even flirted. I’m over it. I’m over guys. […]

Politics. I hate politics. My hatred is not a passionate one, but more of a passive one. I’ll admit that I don’t even know what some of the buzzwords in today’s politics mean. I don’t care either. I don’t even care enough to spend 5 seconds doing a Google search. All I know is that […]
