    My daughters met my man

    for a casual ice cream before we went to the theatre. It went well. Then we had a play date with him n his daughter. They got on like a house on fire. It was effortless and easy. They even organised that we should stay for a sleep over. Three little faces pleading and so we...

    The Puzzle

    I am actively rebuilding myself, it is something that I feel I need to do. I spend more time on it that I do on my coursework, which speaks volumes on my dedication to college. I find it much like building a puzzle without having all the pieces - you go in blind. But the more...

    I'm reaching the conclusion of the custody

    battle which has consumed my life for the last eighteen months. I will soon have time to fill when my daughters are with their father. Tonight is the second weekend without them. I miss them like crazy but tonight inside of crying I went to a meet-up at a restaurant. It was fun...

    I am under construction.

    Tough to admit because part of me just wants to move on with my life already, but I know I'm not there yet. I need to rebuild myself, heal, and ground myself before I'm ready. For those not up on my back story - here's the short and dirty. My marriage began collapsing in the...

      I had to retire from the 101st Abn

    (Air Assault) after Desert Storm due to a bad neck, I couldn't wear a protective cover (helmet, for all you old timers - Big grin!) and had to find work quick.  Since I've been driving since I was 10 (tractors since 7 and my first 18 wheeler at 14, workin' on a farm, you...

    I am definitely rebuilding myself.

    2015 has been one of the worst years of my life. From the loss of a longterm relationship to the loss of several friends. Taking time to rebuild me to a better person for myself and more importantly for my kids.

    So much has changed with me this past year, and I feel the biggest is yet to come. I reached a point in my life where I could fall no further, lose any more hope. So rock bottom shall be the foundation I build my life firmly upon. I don't know where I'm going from here, or even...

    I just got through the worst episode of mental illness I have ever had in my life (yes mental illness is real and, at least in my case, messed me up physically and emotionally). I'm rebuilding from here. I know it can be done. I dream of building a truly beautiful life out of...

    Taking a leap of faith n agreeing to move in

    with my man. We are going to bring our worlds together n both move to be in a place we can still run our lives from. In not moving far he's moving a lot further. We are going to rent first not buy as it's easier to separate if things go pear shaped. I'm scared because for the...

    I am rebuilding myself.

    2015 has been one of the worst years of my life. And I have blamed pretty much everyone but myself. These last couple of weeks has been a time of brutal honesty. I've stopped lying to myself about what I want, and reflected on all the decisions I've made. I've made a point not...
