He has the nerve to call me selfish?

He called me "selfish". What nerve! You call me selfish when I take care of our daughter every day meanwhile you strain to visit her even once a month. Did you show up in April? No! What audacity to call me selfish when you live 15 minutes away but you didn't visit your daughter for an entire... Sign in to see full entry.

Now I've changed my mind

My daughter's father wants to take her to Texas for 3 weeks. My head and heart say "no, no, no, absolutely not!" but I told him it was fine. It wouldn't surprise him if I reneged, and I think I just might. He hardly visits her, even though he lives 15 minutes away. We have not seen him since March.... Sign in to see full entry.

Imagine me, in bed

I got my bed out of storage yesterday. My daughter and I slept in it for the first time since September. It's easy to take for granted the little things, like having a comfy bed to rest on every night. Sign in to see full entry.

That new apartment smell

My toddler broke into tears when she realized that all our stuff was gone. She had been with my mother in the bedroom while I took our things out of the living room and over to our new place. Our suitcase of clothes, bags of books, shoes, toys, her baby chair, the comforters on which we slept. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Got a new place!

We're getting a studio apartment this Sunday! The apartment complex where we live now is beautiful and safe and near to a lake. I don't even lock my car at night. But the baby and I have been staying with my mom in her one bedroom apt. My mom has the bedroom, my toddler and I have been taken over... Sign in to see full entry.

Need a place to live

Checked out a two-bedroom basement for which the owner wants $750 a month. Cheap price and it's a decent place but it looks like owner made all the home improvements himself. It's got a clean tile floor but it's not professional tilework. The cabinetry, the drywall, the ceiling. It all looks like... Sign in to see full entry.

Got a new job!

I got a new job! (Thanks for asking, 8-ball). It's not the $60K one I mentioned a couple posts ago. But it's a very nice $50K one as an Executive Administrative Assistant. I started on Monday. Basically, I'm a secretary to two high level officers in a huge commercial construction company. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Got his number

Just met someone. He admired me in the convenience store where I'd gone to buy a snack. I left the store and was walking back to the office and ran into him again. He was very polite and we exchanged numbers. I don't usually meet good guys this way but I would like to have someone new in my life. Am... Sign in to see full entry.

Delaying gratification

She used to scream because she couldn't such her thumb when I put her mittens on. But she doesn't fret any more. Now, she is content to it wait out on the way to the babysitter's because she knows that the snowsuit, hat, and yes, mittens will come off once she gets inside the house. Yay for her!

Fat Salary

I submitted my resume for to a recruiter who has a position that comes with a nice $60K-plus salary! I don't know if she is considering me for that job or if she has something else in mind. I sure do hope it's that one. My daughter and I will be more comfortable financially, if I land it. Sign in to see full entry.
