Afraid

I don’t follow many blogs.  I don’t have time to sort through a ton of blogs which don’t mean anything to me.  One of them that I do follow is Carly Watters, who is an agent and posts stuff which is aimed toward writers – information, good advice, encouragement, etc.  Today, her blog was, “What …

New Kinda Father’s Day

For years, I’ve not celebrated Father’s Day.  Many years ago, I walked away from my own father because he treated me in ways which are unacceptable.  You all know I have as little to do with my children’s father as humanly possible.  My mother refuses to date (once bitten, twice shy, right?) so there is …

Still Moving In

It’s been almost seven months that I’ve lived here.  SEVEN FREAKIN’ MONTHS!  And I’m still unpacking!  Ugh! The office has been a horrific mess since the day I moved in – boxes everywhere, his stuff jammed into a corner.  It’s been driving me nuts that I couldn’t find any of my DVDs (boxes and boxes …

Meeker Days

It has begun.  All of the local (and not so local) festivals are upon us.  Since I’ve moved, I miss a lot of home, even though it’s only an hour away.  I feel as if I would be missing out if I didn’t go to my favorite summer happenings, so I’m making them a priority. …

Fruits of our Labors

What?  You haven’t heard enough of my garden yet?  Oh – I’m so glad!  ‘Cause here’s some more! Here’s my baby zucchini.  Can you see it?  The microscopic zucchini-shaped thing at the bottom of the massive blossom?  That’s it!  My first zucchini!  Yay! And here is one of my new little beans.  I swear – …

Re-Appearance

I had quite the shock, the other day.  Mr. Driver reappeared in my life.  Well, okay – not exactly.  He texted me.  “Hey!  Remember me?”  Wow!  I didn’t expect that!  (Honestly, a part of me keeps hoping that Mr. Cuddles will contact me to let me know that he’s found someone, but that’s another issue …

Getting to Know Me

I keep singing this song today.  Over and over.  Hopefully, blogging will help it stop. When I was dating, I tried to be completely honest with any of my perspective partners.  I figured that I wanted to find someone who would love me for me, warts and all, not for some fake, perfect version of …

Reminiscing

Today marks eleven months since Mr. Camper and I agreed to be exclusive.  Wow!  What a whirlwind!  When I started dating to find a partner, I told myself that I would take it slowly – that I wouldn’t rush into anything.  And here I sit, 11 months in, already co-habitating with him for almost half …

Shame, shame, shame!

Recently, I’ve read a lot about shaming others: Parents publicly shaming their children to “teach them a lesson,” body shaming (being too fat, showing too much skin, showing not enough skin, shaming breast-feeding mommies, etc.)  We all know that shaming anyone doesn’t lift them up in anyway; all it does is tear them down – …

Believe in Yourself

So, y’all know that Mr. Camper and I have started a garden.  It’s doing relatively well.  Our peas went in later than they should have and the peppers are getting too much water, but other than that, things seem to be going well. Some of it, we started from seeds (our peas, some beans, some …
