Long time lurker, coming out on this blog because I don't know where else to talk about this.
Last Friday, I called the Southern Baptist Church in which I grew up, to ask them to NOT hold a memorial service for my mother. I spoke to the senior pastor, and can I just how much I truly hate that condescending, pastoral tone?
I voiced my opinion because my father requested this memorial, and my siblings support this. Problem? My parents have been divorced for over 30 years. My father remar
Does Christmas seem wildly over the top this year?
No? Just me?
I'm Jewish. We are a "Hanukkah is a minor holiday" family. Don't go overboard with presents, etc. This is not my first rodeo with public school December Dilema . . . but this year feels different somehow.
Today is the first of 2 court dates for my divorce. Today should be a quick 5 minute stating what we we want done then wait for the final hearing in May. We are in agreement on everything, I just want it to all be be done and change my name.
Two actors who made an impact on my life passed away today. RIP Carroll Spinney, who portrayed Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch for over 45 years on "Sesame Street". And RIP to Rene Auberjonois, a wonderful actor who played many memorable roles, my favorite was Odo on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine".
I never got to meet Mr. Spinney, but had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Auberjonois several times, including on the Star Trek cruises for the last two years. I wondered why he wasn't scheduled for the 2020 cruise, it turned out he had metastatic lung cancer.
My partner of 7.5 years blindsided me two weeks ago by moving out while I was at work... There were problems, yes, but I thought we would be working them out. After moving out, he said “we have to go to couples therapy” and he said he’d give me a chance to fix things. After we saw a therapist (mine) for couples therapy resources, he told me “send me the resources she emails you for couples therapy” and cut off all contact. He told a third party that texted him the location and time of the couples therapy appt “I appreciate that she made the appt but I won’t be coming and there’s no need to reschedule”
People have told me to give him time and I’m seeing the therapists but the complete cut off of communication scares me.
I’ve been devastated and can barely function each day. My boss (who’s evil) even asked if I’m getting therapy from all of the mistakes I’ve made. On top of this, I have to study for two licensing exams. It’s horrible...
