Touching Base..

We meet again, my long-lost (and long-missed) cyber friends. A lot has changed in my life, and I thought I should post a short summary of happenings. I apologize for being quiet for so long, but I had to wait for the roller coaster to slow in order to hold my pen and write...

My divorce was final last Wednesday. We wrapped it up one week after our 15 year wedding anniversary. I have relocated to a nice quiet little town, where I can hear coyotes and crickets at night, instead of gangster rap and sirens and freeway traffic. I brought my good little dog, and even obtained a cat (good grief). My dog loves the 2 acre yard she has to run on, and the puppy who lives next door. She has found renewed youth here, and I hope to find it, too. After so much drama and court proceedings and restraining orders, I have placement of my youngest daughter, who I of course brought with me to Little Town, USA. She likes it here. She is discovering a lot of new things about herself.

I am hopelessly in love with my best friend, and have to most past that...somehow.

I quit my job to save my career (long story) and am currently un-employed officially, just getting by on the few bucks I earn with my riding lesson program. I still have CJ, but he couldn't tolerate being barefoot anymore...he was getting heel sore, and I had to shoe him. He's still adjusting, but is doing very well. He celebrated his 13th birthday in April. I took a good look at him, and wished for him to be able to get a break from the lesson horse gig. If I get the job I'm trying for, my wish for him may come true.

I cut all my hair off, and put a ton of blonde in it.

I lost weight, and gained it back.

I now drive a VW Beetle, and love it. :)

I am starting over. Wanna come with me?


  1. oh my! Talk about life changing!
    New beginnings are good, I'll come along for the ride.
    PS: Any chance you will turn off Word Verification? It's horrendous!

    1. Done. Sorry about that, Shirley. :)

  2. Welcome back girl. Sounds like you had (and have) your hands more than full there. I'll be along for the ride- now rub on CJ from me!
