Look how sorry I am.

Sorry, I’m Not Sorry. Not Anymore

I’m done saying “sorry.” And here’s why. I say “sorry” all the time. I probably say “I’m sorry” to start 25 sentences each day. I am so very sorry multiple times a day, every single day. But the thing is, I am not actually sorry. To be completely frank, I am usually not sorry at […]

Single Mom, Dating

I could write a novel about dating as a single mom. One day, I may. The real question is, would I file my novel under Science Fiction, or Horror? Animal Husbandry, perhaps? I have put off discussing dating time and time again because I didn’t know where to begin. Do I start at my beginning, when I became a single mom? […]
