A note to stepmoms everywhere

To Monday! Who’s With Me? (sound of crickets)



It’s been the kind of week where you are glad it’s over and ready to start a new one. This past week was like a bad ex-boyfriend. It was full of drama, took all my money, kept me up at night worrying, had me trying to explain things and answer all kinds of uncomfortable questions. I had “fights”, but they were fat-girl-clothes fights. You know, you’re a little fluffy, so sometimes your clothes all go on strike and stop fitting at the same time, so you throw them everywhere and angrily try on everything you own. It’s a “fat day” when there are clothes all over the bed first thing in the morning.

Kind of an unpleasant way to start the day, and most of my days started that way this week.

I did make it to the hospital to see my stepdad and see how my mom was doing yesterday. It’s better when you just go and see how people are holding out, you worry less. Today I “played photographer” and took some pictures of a little wedding that we had at one of my volunteer places. And that was about all I could do.

I’ve been put through a wringer-washer, pulled through a knot. Hit by a train. Dragged behind a runaway rodeo bull. You get the idea.

I’m done. I’m so glad I’m done. I’m so happy tomorrow is Monday and all this garbage is behind me and it’s almost like a little New Year’s Eve. Or a restraining order against my crazy ex-boyfriend of a week. Whichever you find easier to relate to.

I’m moving on. Who’s with me?!?

  7. You know what? This must be part of the Italian thing. Smoke and drink and pasta will keep you thin. Getting healthy might kill you. Only healthy members on my Italian side are fat. It’s genetic.


  8. Ohhhh IT IS!! I THINK YOU ARE RIGHT!! That’s it!!! I’m having wine and a cig and a big ass bowl of pasta from now on!!! 😉 love love love


  9. I remember weeks like this. I am always so happy to put them behind me and start the week new, forgetting about what happened last week.

    Let’s do this!
