100 random things

Apparently, this is my 100th blog entry post-divorce.  I wonder what I'd be up to if I still had up my archives???  Anyway, I will attempt to tell you 100 random things.  Some you might already know, some you may not.  Let's see how I do:


I have a Barbie poster hanging in my current bedroom.I currently have 3 cats, a dog of my own and a foster dogMy toenails are painted purpleMy fingernails are painted blackMy hair is the longest it has been in 20 plus yearsI'm happier overweight than I was when I was thinI spent half my life in a relationship with my ex-husbandI have several nicknames including: Fred, Freddie, Froffie and the newest FrofflesI have 5 tattoosMost of the shirts in my wardrobe are black or grayI stocked up on Puffs tissues with Vicks because you can only find them in the winterI have an older sisterMy parents are both retiredI was a majorette in high schoolI also played clarinetI can no longer read musicI wish I could singI am a ridiculously, hopeless romantic…

Mirror, mirror

Not a day goes by that I don't think about my ex-husband and what transpired between us 2 years ago. Every day when I look at myself in the mirror, I am reminded of what happened that day.  A day that opened my eyes and showed me what I needed to do.

Oddly enough, even though I think about it every single day, this year, the date passed and I didn't even realize it until today.  I'd like to think it's because I have put all that behind me.  At least, I hope that's what it is.  I've come a long way since that day. I'm a different person now than I was, but one thing has become abundantly clear to me, I am not so sure I like the person I have started to become.
There have been many things over the past couple of years I am not proud of.  I've done some pretty stupid things while trying to soul search and find myself.  Yeah, we all make mistakes.  My problem? I keep making them.  The biggest thing I dislike about myself is my apparent inability to speak up…
