My Coveted Normal

It was just a little over 3 years ago.   I had had my annual mammogram the previous week, and they had seen something they didn’t like.  I was on my way to get a diagnostic mammogram and sonogram. I wasn’t too alarmed, as I have had several call backs since I was 37. As I was driving […]

This Time’s a Charm

It’s been four months since my last relationship. Unfortunately, I got my heart broken.  It wasn’t fun and it certainly wasn’t pretty, but it happens. As I finally feel ready to move on and open myself up again, I found myself thinking, maybe THIS time is going to be the charm. Then I realized, EVERY time […]

God’s Match

This might be a bit of a ‘soapbox’ blog… As many of you know, I have been divorced for nearly 3 years.  Last winter, I joined to “kick start” the dating process.  I met a lot of men and, overall, I would say the experience was positive.  I’ve also dabbled in eHarmony a bit, but am not […]

Dance Club the Pet Shop

Last weekend, I went out dancing with a friend.  The last time I remember going to a dance club was with my then husband when we first got married, almost 20 years ago.  It’s not that I don’t love to dance, but that I’ve been married/in a relationship, and, to be honest, it really wasn’t a […]

What is Your Sentence?

I am not much into keeping up with the ongoings around the world, but I do watch CNN in the mornings while I run on the treadmill.  I know, CNN isn’t a ‘favorite’ among many, but I like it because I can read the tickers across the bottom of the screen, watch the commentary and […]

Angels Among Us

Is it bad to say that I’m relieved my son is graduating from high school?  There were several occasions where he would struggle with going to school.  It was stressful on all of us, to say the least.  And so, with the ‘normal’ emotions of any high school graduation, I feel relief. At the beginning of his last […]

More than Proud

(a graduation letter to my son…) he won’t get to read this until the 20th, so shhhhh…. 11 May 2012 Dear Brendon, I’m not sure that I know where to begin, but I will do my best.  I know that right now everyone around you is reading a letter, and they are all reading practically […]

My Man “Shopping List”

It’s been a little over 2½ years since my divorce was final.  I’ve dated a bit and have had a few “relationships” (of sorts), but, to be honest, I’m finding that I’m not entirely sure I know what I’m looking for this time around. I have a “list.”  (Yea, I go to a therapist from time […]

Where are Your Accusers?

I have to admit: I like ice cream.  I like ice cream a lot actually.  In truth, as of late I’ve been preferring vanilla frozen yogurt with fresh raspberries, but that’s beside the point. My oldest son loves ice cream too.  In fact, he may love it more than I do.  When I buy ice […]

I Don’t Know Who I Am…

I posted this song on my Facebook page yesterday.  I wasn’t sure WHY, but everytime it came on my Pandora, I would stop and listen. As I listened, I would TRY to figure out why it was meant for me to listen to.  What was it about this song that I was supposed to HEAR? […]

a note from gina…

PLEASE pardon my 'mess'... I'm still fine-tuning the graphics and the content and, well... Let's just say I shouldn't have invited "company" in just yet, but I got too excited!

That said...I am so glad you're here!!
