my take on being adopted

Originally written in June… This past Sunday was Father’s Day.  I didn’t spend it celebrating it.  At.  All. I suppose I technically have a father…my adoptive father.  But as far as I’m concerned and my brothers are concerned, he’s dead to us and can rot in hell.  That may seem exceptionally harsh.  But it’s really …

mid-july randoms

I was finally able to find a maxi-dress that was just right.  I’m short, like 5’2/5’3…most maxi-dresses are too long and I’d wind up tripping over the hem.  I finally found one that hits perfectly at my ankle while I am wearing flats!  Thank you, J.Crew. I had a great night out with bestie and …

tick tick tick…boom!

I know I’ve touched on this before, but as I just spent a day with two of my friends’ babies, I couldn’t help but feel that awful pang…the longing for my own children. I make no bones about it.  I want kids. Now that I’m single again, it is like a fucking ticking bomb in …

random thoughts 5/12

Some random stuff: I finally got my old peepers checked out and I am happy to say that I am no more blind than I was the last time I had an eye exam.  I am pretty much blind as a bat without contacts or glasses.  But with my contacts, I have 20/20 vision.  And …

i am my mother’s daughter

Believe it or not, I never actually told my mother the whole Colossal Douche Bag story.  Until I spoke to her on Mother’s Day.  I always meant to tell her the reason we broke up, but she never pressed for info and there never seemed to be a good transition into telling that story. On …

happy new year!

Wishing everyone a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! Tonight I am going to celebrate New Year’s Eve with St. Elmo and his parents.  This will be the first meeting of the ‘in-loves’ (In-loves is a term coined by a co-worker to describe your boyfriend’s/girlfriend’s parents). St. Elmo is adorably more nervous than I …

my “babies”

So, today I was putting together a short consumer research blurb about pet ownership and how pets are becoming the “new children”.  I 100% consider my two cats to be my kids.  My mother gets cards from her grandkitties.  I know that’s probably sick and I need help, but we all know that already. I …
