Getting it Done is More Important than Sleep… a parenting truth

1912090_10152088576033370_762349289_nParenting can be hard but being a single parent can be really, really hard. Not having someone to share the duties with is exhausting. There’s often not enough hours in the day to get everything you need to do done. And when you’re sick that gets even harder.

That’s been me this week. Fighting this brutal sinus/ chest cold thing that started with a painful sore throat and no voice. I work in radio, I need my voice. And I have to work. We’re short one announcer so sick days aren’t an option. Continue reading

When Daughter Takes Care of Mommy… a proud momma moment

a kiss will make you all better.

a kiss will make you all better.

My body hates me right now. Partly from not taking as good care of it as I should. Partly from this IUD I got in, which the doctor says should help with my migraines and heavy periods. Anyway, the hormones are messing with me and my body hates me. Continue reading

Getting Back to Healthy… a vow to beat depression

Photo 168

In December of 2013 I gave up.

I gave up on anything that I had been dreaming of. Things important to me and my personal development. I did not in any way give up on my Mom Duties. No, I gave up on me and put all the effort into my Mom Duties as a way of coping with the fact that daily life was nothing like I had anticipated it would be. Continue reading

A Question About Love… from one who’s jilted

thinking... always thinking

thinking… always thinking…

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about love. Feeling as if there is a chance I might be able to find it again with a partner as opposed to just having the unconditional love for Princess D and my Inherited Teen. Continue reading

Vacation Time… Going to Vegas with my 5year old

Image

I am going to Las Vegas. For the first time in my life I am traveling to Sin City, the place where nothing leaves, secrets are kept and adults party for days straight. Or gamble their hours away. And I am going with my 5year old daughter. 

We’re going for a wedding, good friends of ours, and it is a family affair but every time Princess D tells someone she’s going to Las Vegas they stare at her, wide eyed, incredulous at the fact that this little innocent is going to Las Vegas, the Disneyland for the X-Rated. 

Am I nervous about taking her there? A little, but she has been to Nicaragua with me and this time there are more kids going so it will be more fun. 

Am I wishing I was going without her? Not at all. Although that might change once I get the Vegas vibe hitting me. 

Will it be an adventure? Yes. And it will be my chance to see how kids friendly Sin City can be. And to get some reviews of it from the mouth of a 5year old. 

What do we want to do? 

  • *M&M world – D wants this. I want to do a walk by. 
  • *Circus Circus acrobat show – apparently free every hour
  • *Shark reef & dolphins – apparently there’s a hotel with these, which kind of makes me sad but will be cool for D to see. 
  • *Ziplining – Mommy only and she’s terrified.
  • *Science / Discovery museum – fun for the kiddies that stimulates the brain
  • *Hiking in the desert – a must because both D and I are excited to see the desert

 

And now the journey begins. Fingers crossed we don’t have any flight issues…. *wipes sweat off brow*

The Men I Attract… could be the reason why I am single

will i ever find the one???

will i ever find the one???

I have had a dating epiphany. A realization that is equally depressing and frightening. And perhaps one that could be a testament to my dating maturity.

I have come to the realization that all of my life I have attracted men that fall into one of two sub-categories of not right for me.  The first are those that say they want girlfriends but really need counselors to take care of them. Continue reading
