She strikes again...the coworker blues

It’s Monday…I wonder if I just look like I want to hear her life story. I know I don’t walk in the door bubbly and full of excitement, especially when I didn’t go to sleep last night until 2am.
So I am not sure what gives her the green light to invade my personal bubble space with her meaningless stories, but nonetheless, she is eager to tell me something, so this was today’s story as soon as I sit down at my desk:

So my dad has Irritable Bowel Syndrome and when I take my mom to the doctor this week, I have to take him with us and if he has an accident, I have to change him. OMG NaTasha, what am I gonna do? Last time he had an accident in my car it was so gross. What would you do? 
Hell if I know, I thought. I don’t even wanna hear this story, and I know the look on my face should of told her my response as clear as day. I had nothing, just a blank awkward stare. I think she got the hint and she walked back to her desk. Someone should of taught her a long time ago….you don’t have to share everything.
Is it 5 o’clock yet? Jesus help me.

You Lost Me...I Found Me...

This was probably my greatest accomplishment this year...walking away completely. Our divorce was officially finalized and I was allowed true happiness. No more insults, put downs, explaining to young kids why daddy was yelling and punching holes in the wall. No more feeling I wasn't good enough, no more sleepless nights...I can finally go into a new year at peace. Looking forward to 2017. I made it!

Just another night with the wasband and I

So yesterday was the first, so that is day the wasband really can't stand me since he has to give me a check. Since our divorce our words have become less and less friendly, which is sad, since we have known each other for over 17 years. So this was last nights convo... Wasband: Have my receipt ready, I am on my way He arrives, I am writing out his receipt Wasband: When are you changing your name? Me: I'm not, the kids are still in school, so it's easier to keep it. Don't worry, you can marry her and she can take your name, it's no big deal. Wasband:  You dropped something So I look down on the ground, turn around in circles, I see nothing. Me: I don't see anything, I don't have a clue what you could be talking about. Wasband: I'm going to back up and shine the lights on it. Walk by the basketball goal, look down. Me: There is nothing there. I can't see a thing. Then the light bulb in my head went on, I see what is going on now. Wasband

Marriage is Teamwork!

One spouse cannot build a marriage alone when the other spouse is committed to destroying it. Marriage works when both husband & wife work together as a team to build their marriage. Teammates do not compete against each other; they complement each other.   Teammates do not pull each other down; they encourage & support each other. Teammates do not fight in the opposites direction; they face the same direction & fight the same opponent together. Marriage teamwork is not about me; it's about us, we & ours. There is no greater example of teamwork than husband & wife. Hand in hand together, let every couple work together for the success of their marriage. Marriage is not a solo performance, it's a duet.
