I keep writing on my blog because I still love to write, it still helps me metabolize my feelings, and you guys are still out there. There are new betrayed spouses and spouses of sex addicts arriving at a daily pace. It makes me sad, but I also realize there is a need for people to … Continue reading I keep writing
I am joining in on Totally Caroline's 100 Things I Love. After reading Owlie's List, I realized I need to do one before I can no longer distinguish my list from everyone else's. I was thinking I could very easily do a list of 100 Places I Love and 100 Things I Love to Eat. So, you … Continue reading Okay, me too!
Oh London, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach... I think Disney is responsible for my original infatuation with England. Mary Poppins is magical, she just is, and then of course Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Angela Lansbury learning witch craft … Continue reading How do I love thee?

I have been dreading getting up the courage to tell everyone that I don't want to have Thanksgiving again this year. Last year I opted out and we went … Continue reading And that’s a good thing
I spent about a half hour yesterday with a lovely young woman. She's so young in fact that she is younger than my younger son. Her life experiences are minimal. She knows about Blue Eyes and our situation. She knows he is a sex addict and she is so sweet and understanding and compassionate towards … Continue reading I hope you dance
This past weekend we traveled to the coast to attend my sister's wedding. I blogged about her. She's the one whose first husband came home one day and told her he was cheating on her, that he was in fact leaving her, for a man. That was a few years ago. Her ex has been married … Continue reading One year ago today
It is Blue Eyes' birthday today. Yep, he made it another year. Astonishing. 😉 And in even bigger news, we have a new master bathroom. Yippee!!! October 1996 (before move in and first remodel): Before, photo taken February 2010 (after having lived with the "new" bath for almost 14 years): A few of the reasons we … Continue reading Celebrations
