I started this blog out of desperation 3 years ago. Both my now ex-wife and I had just been fired within a week of each other and were unemployed for a year and trying to survive. My then mother-in-law suggested we try our hand at blogging in order to network for jobs. I don’t do networking and instead decided to use it as a public forum to share my thoughts and experiences because journaling no longer felt like enough.
Since then, I have survived a traumatic experience of dealing with a loved one’s murder (especially the part of walking into the un-cleaned murder scene), gotten divorced, tried my hand at dating, and fallen in love with a married man only to have my heart broken. Just recently I found love again with a man who seems too good to be true.
I think that sums it up. My blog covers my efforts to cope with grief and loss from those experiences, and maintaining my lifelong struggle with depression, as well as balancing and enjoying my newfound identity and comfort in being a single woman with the unexpected stumbling into a serious relationship and being part of a couple again.
I hope I didn’t scare you away.
Stay and explore awhile.
I might surprise you.
