Five on Friday

Hip hip hooray! Friday is here & everyone is always nicer on the Friday before a 3-day weekend, right? I have a gajillion half posts that I never finish so these 5 on Friday posts are great for getting them out.

Divorce (or maybe it's the marriage part) is not unlike an addiction. It's hard to quit. It's hard to let go & move forward. I went through the 5 stages of grief and y'all, I swear, I'm now working my way through the 12 step program. I'm on step 8. I think it's the hardest because my pride doesn't want to admit that I may have played a role or brought some of my greatest hurt on myself. I have been stuck on step 8 for a while, actually. I hate it! It is very humbling though, especially when I have to accept that some of those apologies are going ignored. I have to say it, mean it, move forward, and hope that my words help the other person move forward too. This time around, I'm making a real effort to do what feels good instead of looks good. That goes for every aspect in my life. And it doesn't FEEL good to have all this anger, grudges & hurt on my shoulders. 

Miss Priss begs everyday to go dancing. I don't know why or where it came from, but I guess I better find the girl some classes. She enjoys gymnastics a lot & I love watching her jump & flip; but I won't lie- I dream of being a dance mom. I can't help it. I loved dancing and I really hope she does too! 

Since my mom's incident, I've had to take a leave of absence from work to be here with her. I bathe dogs, scoop poop, shovel holes, field train, you name it. Oh, did I mention I'M ALLERGIC TO DOGS! Multiply that by 8... And the pregnant one is now in the house and will soon be multiplied by, like, a dozen. I am loaded up on Zyrtec and Benadryl like a boss! 

My sweet friend sends me daily happies. Some days it's funny, some days it's inspirational & on my favorite days, it's a little of both. On one particularly weird day she sent this. Girlfriend has good timing. 

It is painful watching Big Brother this season. Amanda is just awful. If she wins, I swear I'm going to actually cry. And in my audition tapes, there's no doubt I will be informing production how much I HATE her. Though I shocked myself this week when I was actually hoping *gulp* Aaryn would stay & Andy would be voted out. I've wanted her out from week 1 and hated myself for hoping the house would flip. I did love the audiences reaction to her though. You know she's thinking "oh shit, what have I done" and will cry all the way to jury! 


  1. Love those quotes ..... and how you're handling your emotions going through this season of your life! Sounds like you are one wise girl!!

    Happy Friday - so glad you joined the link-up!!

  2. Dropping in from Five on Friday link up! Those are some great words of inspiration. I'm really disappointed with Big Brother this season too! I've mostly stopped watching because it's just too awful to watch!
