We have all felt it before. All sworn we wouldn't do it again. Committed to self-discipline in the future only to be met with that caving feeling, followed by the voice of reason's laughter as regret sets in. That moment when you want something more than what you've trying to accomplish; to be "bad. Even if its just for a moment.
Who has ignored the little voice yelling "fatty! dont' eat anymore!" "Don't call him again!" "You can't afford that!" "You know he/she is going to get mad!" "Don't say it!" You hear it, loud and clear. That voice of reason. The good angel on one shoulder... Read More
Okay, we have another question that takes us into the bedroom.
Let's Talk About It,
I am a sorta cute divorced woman. I'm 35 years old. I have a daughter and she's 9, but I want to get on with my life. I need to have some grown up time, too. So, this boyfriend I been with for a couple of weeks wants me to dress up in little girl's clothes and wear patent leather shoes when we are you know, together. What should I do?

New Year's Resolutions
Some people make new year's resolutions. I don't think I have met someone who has admitted to doing this. Me? I make a resolution of faith, but the traditional resolution to give up or limit chocolate, lose five pounds or read 25 books before the year or actually try to keep up with housework while both boys are in the home (9 & 12)...well, let's just say, it isn't going to happen, it wouldn't be prudent and I'm not gonna do it. I'm an adult now and I don't have to if I don't wanto to. So, Nah! Besides, I have other things I can count on to occupy my time,... Read More
The death of a foster child like everything in life is a combination of a thousand little things, any one of which had it changed, would have resulted in a much different outcome. The issue though is preventable changes. Things that competence, or decency, or forethought, which would have prevented the single terrible factor that led to the death of a child.
There is usually enough blame to go around when such tragedies occur. A birth parent, a related adult, or even a foster parent may murder a child, or cause that child to take their own life. Yet if signs were ignored by police... Read More
