    Training in Session

                              My life seems to be on overdrive as of late – finalizing my career change ideas, researching masters degree programs, lounging in large pools in Vegas. I mean really, that can just be a bit overwhelming for a girl, you know? Of course I realize there’s  no excuse (except a lame one) for me having left the writing alone for over a week. None. Especially when I fuss at other bloggers and remind them of that handy WordPress mobile application we can always use whenever we’re not near a computer. So what about my dating life and…

    72 Hour Gag Order

      The stages of a break-up. We’re probably familiar with what they are or may have at least heard of them, but they’re the different transitions we go through with our minds and emotions that are really on the verge of a break-DOWN, depending on how involved you are with your significant other, boyfriend or husband.  I’m not really interested in the transitions from one to the next but really, the first couple of days after a break-up. How are you feeling? Hurt, angry, lonely, confused or numb.   Blind-sided, guilty (depending on if it was something YOU did) or stupid. Whatever flows out of the flood gate of emotions, I think that…

    Closed Mouths Don’t Get Fed

    Finally, the end of the day is here! When you’ve got a lot of stuff on your mind, doesn’t the 8-hour work day seem more like a 28 hour flight sandwiched between two large people with no a/c and a bad itch down there?  Yep, pretty much like torture. So here’s part two of this morning’s surface street and bathroom post, “My Hump Wednesday” and while I’m still emotional and pissed off at this monkey wrench being thrown into the mix,  I probably shouldn’t make any decisions nor should I even be writing about this latest hangover in training but f!ck it, here it is.  Rescue’s actions are making me question my own…

    My Hump Wednesday

    I know you should never leave home angry but as I hope to catch more red lights than ever before to write this, I’m pretty upset. Okay, understatement. Pretty pissed. I’m trying to figure out what I’m so upset, replaying how I just stomped out of the house moments ago without the usual kiss and parting words for Rescue. Instead, a flip of the light switch and a really “firm” closing of the door was how I exited stage left.  I don’t think I’m able to do this. THIS meaning continuing to engage in this unrelationship with him, at least not on the current level. The morning started off well…

    New Kids On The Block

    “I’m going to have to buckle down and build a backbone because this really sucks!” My reply: “Come my child, let me hold you. I will reassure you that you’re not crazy when men confuse you, will comfort you when a man disappoints you and curse you if you keep asking me if dating is really this bad.” Okay well that wasn’t really my reply, but it surely is what I feel like saying to the newcomers to the dating scene or who I’ll refer to as The New Kids On The Block. Let’s assume these newly single men and women were homes and they’ve suddenly found themselves back on…

    What am I worried about?

    “I’m having a baby and am so excited, but how do I tell my fiance’ it isn’t his?” “Having sex with him bores me to DEATH. He has no idea what foreplay is or what it takes to turn me on. The very thought of him touching me makes me nauseous.  Still, I love him so.” “I don’t know what I’m going through right now, and while I still want the marriage, I have my needs. I know I should have stopped months ago, but playing out my fantasies with another man is what keeps me sane.” One story I just saw on another blog, one is actual and the…

    Ssh… I’ve got a secret

    In true procrastinating-blogger-who-makes-excuses-acting-like-posts-by-cell-are-impossible fashion, I’m going to apologize. Has it really been a week already? Damn, where are my nights and days going. Oh wait- I know. Rescue 911. Two songs popped into my head while I was on the treadmill a few moments ago. The first was “My Little Secret” by Xscape but no- that one doesn’t exactly fit. The second was “If Loving You Is Wrong” by Barbara Mandrell. I liked the lyrics a little better, not screaming “whore!!!” Like the Xscape song but still- not quite fitting to my situation. I’ve been contemplating for quite some time about sharing my philanderings with Rescue. He’s like my dirty…
