The best laid plans…

The divorce was supposed to be finalized yesterday. It isn’t. I don’t understand what’s gone sideways. I feel like we did everything we were supposed to do. I just didn’t fully understand what the lawyer was telling me, or they didn’t explain things properly, or something. I thought all we had to do was complete this god-awful online parenting class before Jan 4. We did. I emailed the paralegal on Tuesday, Jan 2 and got an out of office email

Roasted Corn Quesadillas

I got this recipe from Budget Bytes. I used Kroger’s ClickList for the first time yesterday. It was super convenient! I placed my order on my lunch break and scheduled it to be picked up when I got off work. I didn’t have to get Wade out of the car and that’s just awesome. Because it’s cold as balls right now. There were a couple of mishaps, though… When I was filling out my order, it said “Jalapenos – each”

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2018, bitches. This is going to be MY YEAR, everyone! I have declared it, so it must be so!! In the next two weeks I’ve got a therapist appointment, a chiropractor’s appointment, an appointment to finish my chameleon tattoo, my DivorceCare class at church is starting, and I’m getting an IUD! Not to mention the divorce will be finalized on Thursday. I don’t really have any New Year’s Resolutions. I tried to do a “theme” last year of

40 Before 40

View the official and updated list here. I originally made a 40 Before 40 list in August 2016, which feels like a totally different life now. Things have changed a lot since then. Like…a lot. lol! I honestly can’t imagine what my life is going to be like in 10 years. What kind of person I’ll be, or what I’ll want out of life. August 2016 Sarah did, though. Bless her heart. She was super wrong about a lot of

New Tattoo!

I started on a new tattoo this week! I love it so much. BACKSTORY: When my ex and I first started dating he was a tattoo apprentice. (I honestly don’t know if I’d have tattoos now had we not started dating. I do know I’d have vastly different ones, but whatever. All I know is now I love tattoos and have lots of them.) My very first tattoo was a little baby dragon that everyone thought was a Pokemon. My

My House

My parents came up on Saturday and helped me around the house. We got the Christmas tree up! Dad cut down most of the bushes in the back yard (I have lots of bonfire fuel if anyone wants to come over) and cleaned out my gutters, bless his heart. The leaves had full-on composted in there. lolol We also dismantled the futon stand that my ex built and got it out of the nursery, so I could rearrange in there.

Christmas “Card”

Last year I made these really cute paper ornaments to use as our Christmas cards. And by “made” I mean I ordered them from Shutterfly. But I was able to order them back in October when they were doing a “free” deal and it was totally worth it. I had lofty goals to do one every year and then we’d have all these nice ornaments hanging on our tree. Well this year, as you know, has gone to sh*t. So

Holiday Survival

I met with my therapist on October 30. That’s right before a whole bunch of shtf with my ex on October 31 and into the first week of November. I’ve had a pretty rough month, y’all. And I don’t see my therapist again until December 4. But I think it’s okay. I’ll be alright. I just have a lot to discuss with him. So much so that I keep meaning to write it all down so I can get it

30 Before 30

If you remember my 30 Before 30 from days gone by, this one is definitely¬† tweaked in some major ways. Also, it’s not really stuff that I plan on getting done before my 30th birthday. I’m giving myself through the end of 2018. I guess there’s something at least somewhat exciting at starting your 30s as a newly-single mom? I feel like there’s a world of possibilities opening up to me. Did I ever want to be here? No. Am

Case of the Mondays?

Today feels awful Monday-y considering it’s Tuesday. I donated blood yesterday, then stayed up way too late. AND ran into the two people I least want to see right now. I didn’t have to interact with them…but just seeing them is enough to ruin your whole day. Anyway, other stuff happened, too. Good stuff. So don’t let the bad get you down, yo. I really need to track down my old 30 Before 30 list and repost it. I’m midway
