Or How My Life Changed in an Instant

To say 2019 has not been my year would be a vast understatement. This blog is to chronicle my journey from happily married to blind-sided and broken to (hopefully) whole again. And all the in-betweens.

My Maine Squeeze

I have been re-reading my old blog posts. Probably because my Facebook memories have been reminding me of why I started this blog in the first place. And wow. The memories today. 12 years of me gushing over him - which I did not just limit to Valentine's Day. I can assure you, in spite of his protestations to the contrary, I very loudly and very frequently proclaimed my love and gratitude for him and our life. But that's the past. And I can tell you with 100% certainty that I

Bits and Pieces

It's been a long time. Didya miss me? I missed you. I'm not going to try to give you a play by play of the last month and a half, but I would like to share some highlights if that's ok.

Paradise Held

How are you? No. Really. I want to know. We are on the verge of another lockdown because there are still not enough people taking Covid seriously. Not enough people are getting vaccinated.

Quirky Pup and Other Things

This pup is weird y'all. He LOVES and I mean LOVES to eat sticks and leaves. Potty breaks are a challenge because he just wants to eat all the leaves and sticks. And an occasional rock. I don't even begin to know how to train this out of him. Drew said he will grow out of it, but I don't know. It makes him so happy. I have lost count of the number of sticks he has brought inside today. I'm still leaving my window open during the day so he can come and go as he pleases (note

#StillLucky #JustDifferent

I knew how lucky I was. It KILLED me when he said I made him feel like he wasn't enough. I actually believed it for about 24 hours. And I was DEVASTATED to think that I could have in any way ever made him feel like I wasn't full of anything but gratitude for him and our life. And then I talked to some friends. They told me it was bullshit. And then the very next day on Facebook, my memories showed me a post where I literally stated how lucky I was. #luckygirl And then I just
