I felt that during this time, I should choose to focus on something positive so this post is going to be just that. So let’s talk about the return of JJ. I mentioned in Trust My Lonely that JJ and I were no longer friends but his prior return was the beginning of me digging […]

Social Distancing and Romantic Relationships

Towards the end of my telework day, I get a phone call from one of the women I work with. I instantly hear my other co-worker saying, “We’re all here.” All I could think of was, “Aw, shit, what happened, we didn’t plan this call.” I then found out that one of the ladies was […]

What a Radiant Crescendo.

We both knew our marriage had to end, yet here I was at the courthouse, alone, sitting in front of the magistrate confirming that I didn’t want alimony but I wanted my name back. I was so angry at you. I’ve been angry with you. We both agreed, didn’t we? You filed your answer. So […]

Dear Wasband.

Oh the holidays.  I don’t really care for them, they’re just another day and with this new job, they’re days off, and who doesn’t enjoy a PAID day off. I think in the back of my mind in November, I knew something was going to hit the fan.  My psych had stated that we could […]
