Get Your Shit Together…

Bathroom stall with bacon

“Why won’t you just give him what he wants?” the mediator asked, condescendingly. Was this REALLY happening to me? It took channeling every ounce of courage I’d ever had to get myself to the Courthouse that morning. The anxiety I’d felt over having to face my ex without my shield of a lawyer nearly paralyzed …

You Never Know How Strong You Are…

Mailbox Bacon

How could I have known that pulling a manila envelope out of my mailbox would change me forever? But it did – because it set into motion a series of events that scared the shit out of me, yet also presented me with a huge opportunity to face my fears and grow. My hands began …

What Fifty Shades Of Gray Didn’t Tell Me

S&M with Bacon

I wondered if either one of us was going to have the balls to make a move. Over an hour had passed since we started watching football, and there was still a decent amount of space between us on his couch. After weeks of talking, all I wanted was for him to kiss me so …

Back To The Start

SLB-Relaunch-Promo

“Writing isn’t about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it’s about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It’s about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? ” – Stephen King When I started …

Change Is Bullsh*t. ‘The Rebels’ Isn’t.

Let’s face it – Change is scary. Especially if you’re a kid. From the time they are babies, children like things to be predictable. Regular feedings, regular bedtimes, consistent rituals — all of these things help a child feel safe, secure and loved. So when I had to talk to my 8-year-old son this weekend …

Bittersweet

I’ve wanted to write about this for weeks, but knew I couldn’t until the ink was dry and my son was safe. Today is bittersweet. Today my ex FINALLY signed papers to put our new visitation, holiday and vacation schedule into place. Today marks the end of my six month long custody battle – a …

Apparently My Inner Guide Thinks I’m A Judgmental Beotch

School Bus With Bacon

I’ve been on a spiritual journey the last few years. While I’ve always believed in something greater than myself, the idea of God and organized religion never really spoke to me. What did finally speak to me was the Law of Attraction when I watched the movie “The Secret” a few years ago. It changed …

Just Because I’m A Single Mom Doesn’t Mean I’m Less Than

Less Than Three With Bacon

This April will mark my five year anniversary as a single mom, and I’d like to think I’ve come a long way (baby)  since I was first delivered the news that my ex was leaving me for another woman. At the time it was devastating to hear. Honestly I didn’t even know how the hell …

There’s Urine In My Moisturizer. And Other Things I Learned From Netflix.

My Son's face After I told him we're becoming vegans

I might’ve ruined my son’s life this weekend when I told him we were going to become sugar-free vegans. Yep that picture above is basically what his face looked like as the words came out of my mouth. “I don’t want you watching any other documentaries on Netflix, Mommy.” The boy is right. I should never …

Leveling Up In Self-Love

Confetti with Bacon

Leveling up is a concept in games when a character experiences some sort of progression that usually involves unlocking new abilities, skills, access to new items, or as a benchmark of how far they’ve come. Well last night I leveled the fuck up in self-love and I want some god damn confetti – because that …
