    Do I Regret Them? No, Do I Wish I Knew The Answer To "What If"? Maybe

    I met my husband in the army during a time when I was not really myself. I was in a new environment for the first time and totally on my own. For someone who has always been literally surrounded by friends and family, being completely on your own is a little more than scary. It...

         My children are mine by circumstance, not by birth.  They were born to my cousin.  There was a time when my cousin and I were extremely close, like sisters.  She was like my little sister. From the time I was about 18 I tried to look out for her.  She had it rough...

    I wish my ex would take the kids every other

    weekend. One day at least. The kids are asleep and I want to go get tacos. Sucks I can't even run a small errand like that.

    Sometimes Overwhelmed, Sometimes Overjoyed!

    Being a single mom is the greatest, and worst "blessing" bestowed upon me (or as some would suggest) brought on by me. Sometimes I feel like nobody really understands what it's like to do everything alone. Even the kids' father tries to lecture me on how I...
