I finally got a break last night.

Dropped my baby off with my step mother I was going to do some Christmas shopping.

Everything was going to be alright.

I ran into my ex at the Wal-mart.

As soon as I did I knew that it was a mistake, because he automatically stopped me in the middle of the store to tell me that he needed to talk to me.

I did not like the idea of him wanting to talk to me. Nothing he had to say to me could be good. We finished our shopping together for the baby, an...

Being a family is a beautiful thing, but remember if the realtionship is not healthy for you then it is definetly not healthy for your child. I have watched many people get hurt because they think that they are going to work out their problems with their spouse/significant other. I have watched families be torn apart by drugs, because the parents were way to wrapped up in themselve, and didnt want the relationship to end. When I decided to split from the father of my child. It was not for who he...
My sister used to say that "life is what happens while you're making plans"...

and as the years have wandered by,   that is one of the truest sayings for me.

 

This morning finds me baking a cake for my son's girlfriend,  it's her birthday today.  I realized I wished it was for my older sister,  who has been very sick now for months.

Seems like people,  time,  and all the good thing in life,  are falling away,  leaving..and no ...

  How do you tell someone that is genuinely trying to reach out, that you have no interest in them whatsoever. The artificial front that they present to the world, you know is a mask that they hide behind because they confessed it to be so while drunk, all the while I stood trapped, unable to leave or make myself care. I know now how to label it after years and years of hating, and before that fearing the very same markers that identify that personality.

 

  Boisterous, narc...

I went back to my old neighborhood, and though much had changed, it was still very much the same... My girl is 14 now, and is long-legged, healthy and fairly happy for a teenager.  She's in regular schooling once again, after going to a special school for kids with extreme learning disabilities. She started Grade 6 with a kindergarten to grade 1 reading level, and after 2 years, entered Grade 8 this year with a Grade 6 - 7 reading level. She's a bit behind, testing wise, but is...

Wow it's been four years since I wrote anything here on JU. It seems like a lifetime ago. 

I guess a catch up is in order. 

Three years ago I went on a world trip. It started off in Argentina, upto New York over to Germany then to Spain down to Sicily seeing where my Mum comes from and then up to the main land to see where my Dad comes from. Then went to Thailand and back home. 

I came back home to the start of a relationship with a guy who I spent the next two years ...
When I was about 20, I received a letter in the mail that said for a 5 dollar investment, I could get a steady stream of cash income. It seemed like a great deal to me, so I sent for the information.  I got a letter back explaining the process, and it had a few other addresses on it.  I was directed to send 5 more dollars to the next person on the list, and he would send me the next thing I needed to know.  So I sent 5 more dollars and got a sheet back that said I was to send lett...

I wrote a little about this in the article I just finished, but here's an article on just this topic...  I would have (perhaps) posted it sooner, but have been mostly offline due to power outages after the passing through of Hurricane Irene, and well, was otherwise occupied with a honeymoon.

A co-worker (who was one of the groomsmen in the wedding) teased me a bit via TXT message when the Earthquake struck in Virginia (and shocks were felt in Maryland and other parts of the region) t...

Dr. Guy asked in response to another article what's the date -- I'm not sure I had given away the details there previously, but I will here and now.  In just over 2 days, I'll be saying my vows to my soon to be bride.  My second time down the aisle, and hers as well.  We both are looking forward to it, and have been counting the days for a while.  We've had a few bumps along the way as we get closer and keep talking through anything and everything we could thi...

My daughter was going to be at the movies last night, having taken advantage of a special offer to go see the new Glee 3D film before it's regular release to the general public this weekend.  Not having gone to a film in a theater in a few months, I opted to take advantage of the time that I would otherwise need to be waiting to pick her back up and opted to go see the last of the Harry Potter movies.  I had seen all of the previous films, but was delayed in seeing Harry Potter and...

After getting to spend some nice quiet time with my fiance last night, the world just seems so much brighter today.  Yes, it's hot outside, too hot for my tastes.  Yes, I have lots of work to get done still in the clean-up and readying for her and her youngest daughter to move in soon, but again, just getting to share some quiet time with her makes my day and week so much better.

Yeah, yeah, I know, it's that early part of the relationship when everything is so nice tog...

Ah, the joys of some separate worlds...

If I opened up on this topic in some of my other favorite hang-outs, I'd probably be handing someone an "I told you so" type moment and I'm not one that ever likes to do that, so ... well, I'm going to take advantage of this old hangout and open up a bit more here than I might do so in other places.

Somewhere along the way, as I typed thoughts about what I'd expect and try to achieve in any (at that time) future relationship I said so...

The last few days have been fun for me - NOT.

Thankfully between some phone conversation with my fiance late last night, a little bit of my friend MGD (Miller Genuine...) before bed, and a bit of a nap and meditation yesterday a.m. (when I took a mental health day off from work), I finally got a decent block of sleep.  I think the beer was probably the most creditable for that, but then again there was the tiredness that existed all along, and yes, talking with my fiance also helped...

Ok, let me start by saying I forgot some of those other things I was going to be writing about here, but that's not unusual as my brain fails me too frequently in remembering little things throughout the day.  I may remember by the time I close here, but I'm not counting any chickens.

Let me start with the visions.

I wrote an article about some glitches in the road (and some dead horses that I hadn't kicked enough) that had come up over the last few weeks in my relationshi...

Whew!  Thankfully after some talking with my fiance over the last few days, I think we both killed the latest dead horse that was in our path enough that we could move on and get back on track, but it seems that we both still have a tendency to let little things bug us and pop-up along the way that distract us and cause us to lose focus.

Granted, with a dwindling number of weeks to go until we go off and get hitched it's somewhat normal for some things to pop up and try to make thems...
