Do Fundamental Political Differences Kill Friendships?

Because I’m feeling that they do. Or that they can. But I’m not sure. I like to think that I’m generally open-minded and consider differences to be part of the beauty of human existence. I mean, we can’t all be the exact same and think the exact same way – that would be boring and pointless. It would be stagnating. Yet, the other morning, after receiving the strangest text ever from a friend, I’m struggling with what happens now. We’ve been friends for more than 20 years and suddenly, I feel like she doesn’t know me at all. I have

Coronavirus: Making or Breaking Relationships since 2020

Coronavirus – it’s a serious subject. But let’s be honest, with so much serious going around, a little comic relief is quite necessary. That’s all this is. So don’t go getting your panties in a bunch. 😉 I’ve done it. You’ve done it. We’ve all done it. Fantasized about how wonderful life would be if we could just push the world aside and be free to spend all our moments with that one special someone. Nowhere to go. No one to see.

What’s Love Got To Do with It?

Only everything. Seriously, everything. Everyone talks about it, fantasizes about it, reads about it, watches movies and television shows about it, dreams about it and wants it — LOVE.

So, that’s the plan!

After spending time researching school districts and areas, then giving the list of districts (I pre-approved) to the kids for their own research purposes, we’ve settled on where we plan to plant ourselves next. They’re pretty excited about it, which is really nice. I’m pretty excited simply because I’ve been wanting out of this immediate area for pretty much the entire past 20 years! So now that we are sure where we want to go, I’ve refocused my job searching to businesses and organizations in that immediate area. There does seem to be a lot more opportunity there than there

Movin’ On!

Tuesday was an interesting day here. I got notice that my divorce complaint was successfully filed and that I now needed to serve my husband and get him to sign an acceptance of complaint. In continuing to try to keep this civil and simple, I obviously served him myself. Directly after, I had to explain what it meant and what happens next because I honestly believe he has no clue. He’s so in denial of reality that he continues to insist that if I was truly being nice, I’d be working on staying together. Nope, sorry. I’ve done this pseudo-marriage
