Right after hell froze over  I felt like I had been rocketed back into my career. However, it was more like being shot out of one of those circus cannons. You know ….. they shoot a woman out of a clown cannon and she lands on a trampoline or something and keeps on bouncing. Here is […]

  Wednesday I went to court. They granted the divorce. Even though I wanted it, I was surprisingly sad after it was over. Sitting in the hallway of our little courthouse with all the local thugs going to drug court. Actually that was the fun part.  Listening to them and all their problems. Watching lawyers […]

  I turned these two goof-balls out in a big pasture with my friend’s heifers. (Heifers are young cows that have not had a calf yet…. for you ranch virgins) Being that these guys are “cow horses” she did comment …. “They won’t chase the heifers will they?” I’ve been asked that before.  And it’s […]

  It turns out my new life isn’t so different from my old life. Not surprising, considering I only moved “next door”. “Next door” being a couple of miles away with only grass, trees, hills and creeks in between. Still cattle and horses and “ranchey” stuff that I love. But it’s more than that. I’m […]

  I looked up “Badass” in the Urban Dictionary and there was a picture of my friend, Jenn. Every time she rides up on her Harley I get so excited I can hardly stand it. She is the most badass girl I know. I really didn’t know what badass meant. I’ve heard it used so many times by […]

We finished all that moving last week. And I hurt. Physical pain is a welcome relief. It can be fixed with a couple Aleve and day’s rest. Life goes on. I’m actually quite pleased with myself. I’m stronger than I thought I was. I do wonder , though. What’s my new normal going to look […]

I had a dilemma…..  Had … past tense. My things were on the 3rd floor of the “McMansion-in-Progress” (M.I.P.). I needed to move them out of the M.I.P. There were no stairs.  Apparently no stairs were forthcoming according to the F.T.H ( Future Trophy Husband … of someone else) nor were any ideas forthcoming of how to move my […]

” Live like someone left the gate open.” My friend Terri left that comment on my last blog post. I can’t get it out of my head. That is the perfect answer to the eternal question about the divorce. “What’s your plan?” My plan is this ……  I don’t have one. My plan is no plan. […]

Ever since T.H. texted me that it was “curtains” for us, I started gathering up and organizing my “stuff”. My most precious possessions. I took inventory and I pondered…  “This must be what it feels like to be part of a Traveling Circus”.   My most precious possessions include 3 dogs, 3 horses, a pony, […]

  My precious daughter, only child, came to visit this week to help me “lighten the load”.  We’ve talked and laughed and cried so much. We are going through “Our Stuff”. Literally. Her stuff. My Stuff. Our stuff.  We have a lot of “Stuff”.  She made a casual observation to me this week. She asked […]
