I have tried blogging before, but it never lasted long and would just turn into my latest bitch/whine session about whatever I was bitching/whining about then.
That bored me.
So here I am again… (much) older and wiser, kinda.
I am a somewhat-newly (like 4 months- more on that story later) single mom of a VERY active, sweet, funny, crazy, frustrating but can’t help but love her to death 2 and 1/2 yr old daughter who we will call “S”.
We live in LA…or the suburbs of. Just over the hill (all you Angelenos know what I mean) actually. My family drives me insane but I love ’em, my work is calming (odd huh?) and my friends mean the world to me. I was born and bred an Angeleno, growing up in “the Valley.” Totally.
At the age of 20 I was sick of LA, and I moved East. I intended for New York, but wound up in Philadelphia, PA. And I stayed for almost 10 yrs. My life in Philly was MUCH different than the life I led before and the life I would lead after. For a girl in her 20’s who was very much dependent on her family most of her life…the freedom and the responsibility was incredible. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
In 2008, I moved back to Los Angeles…it was just time to. Boyfriend and baby in tow, we settled back in here. I knew it was right and still do, even though, ultimately, my relationship with my daughter’s dad would end and I can never be 100% sure that if we hadn’t moved he wouldn’t become what he ended up becoming.
So now it’s March 2010. I’m single again, and have no idea how to “date” again and the idea alone petrifies me. I meet men…I like men…but I have a fear of anything involving a relationship right now. So I hang out with my friends on the rare occasion I have a night out (and my sometimes great but sometimes pain in the ass sister can babysit). I have known most of my friends at least 10-15 yrs and they are my rocks. Crazy cast of characters but I would not trade them for the world.
That was a brief intro to me, my life and world as it is now. There’s much more to be told, so stick around.
