40 days and 40 nights later…

As I vowed in a previous post, http://livelovelearnbreathe.com/2012/02/23/40-days-and-40-nights/, my Lenten promise was to give up all contact with the man known as Cleveland.  To be fair, I did break that pact, but only once.  (Sorry, Jesus.)  And in my defense, the communication that I did have was a very short and innocent text that, at the time, I … Continue reading 40 days and 40 nights later…

another one bites the dust.

In my last post, I wrote, "This past year (with guys) has been interesting, yet disappointing."  There have been no truer words spoken by yours truly than these.  Beginning with an escapade last winter, my life has been composed of "Nice to meet you" introductions at the bar to "You are a really good person, … Continue reading another one bites the dust.

Three days without any contact between "Cleveland" and me, and I will say that it seems to get easier each day.  Take today for instance.  I was never tempted to text or email him.  Yes, I did look at his last email to me … Continue reading getting over a guy in 10 days: day 3

getting over a guy in 10 days: day 1

November 18, 2011: Day 1 of getting over "Cleveland". Up until last week, I planned on spending today much differently.  Rather than make a pledge to get over "Cleveland", I entertained the idea of our reunion- which would involve me taking at least one overnight bus, if not two.  Crazy, right?  Yes, it most certainly was.  Unofrtunately I have to … Continue reading getting over a guy in 10 days: day 1
