“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 …

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

I should never …

Ah, soulmates. Not just anyone can fulfill you the way your soulmate can. They say your soulmate brings out the best in you, and makes you feel complete. If that is the case, Vodka is surely my soulmate. Few things makes me happier than that warm and fuzzy feeling Vodka gives me as it kisses my …

This Is It

I’m sitting here at my desk pretty close to hyperventilating as I type this. Tears are streaming down my face and the raw, honest truth is that in this moment I am fucking terrified – yet I know I have to find my breath and my strength for my son and for my family. So …

You Can’t Fail A Lesson

Lesson With A Side Of Bacon

I’ve put an insane amount of pressure on myself in the last week without really meaning to. Between Court last Wednesday and all of my current efforts to prepare myself and my lawyer for trial next month I somehow got it in my head that everything I’ve been going through is a test. A ginormous, …

Happy 1st Day Of Therapy To Me!!!

Happy 1st Day Of Therapy To Me

You might remember this post I wrote over the summer in which I decided to put on my big girl panties and seek therapy with the hopes of being less anxious and cray cray in romantic relationships, especially the one I was in at the time with Ben. When I went in search of a …

Breaking The Silence

Screen shot 2013-11-14 at 11.41.08 AM

There’s been a lot going on behind the scenes with me. A lot of emotions. A lot of stress. A lot of anger. A lot of fear. Work has been a bit crazy since it’s probably our busiest time of the year.  My son came home from a week away with his dad acting not …
