Update

Hi readers,

Sorry for the mess of confusion when it comes to the recent inactivity of my blog! I have officially switched servers, and after many hours of copying and pasting (much more than was used during college term papers), my new site is available.

Adventures of a Twenty-Something Single Mom. And, the hyphen does make a difference!

So, I hope you stay tuned and keep reading. You also can now “follow” the site, by clicking the little follow tab at the bottom of the screen. If you’d like to enter your email, you will be automatically updated with a new post without waiting for the facebook page to inform you. However you may wish to read is fine with me- to each their own! I am still honored that people keep up as it is.

Welcome any new readers also! I guess now would be a good time to tell you thank you.

As I was transferring all my posts, I saw the evolution within myself from when I started writing my experiences down last year. Just two years ago, the life I knew fell apart. I filed for divorce when my son was five months old. I battled depression and terrible bouts with anxiety in response. It’s been a long and winding road. Much more winding than long though! And now, 2 years later, I sit here with a smile upon my face. My journey began the moment I decided to leave the life I thought I had behind. You have only one way to go when you reach rock bottom.

I am in a very good place. I love my life, and I could only say that once I decided to love myself again. It took a bit to get there, but once I did it made all the difference. What I hope is that people who are also finding themselves at rock bottom realize that if I can do it, they can too. I hope the words I have shared thus far along in my journey provide empathy in emotions, laughter when there’s nothing else to do, and lots of entertainment when it comes to sharing stories of one super funny two-year old I happen to know very well.

So keep posted, keep reading and laughing (or crying), and keep messaging! I love to hear from those of you who do end up getting something out of my blog.

Thanks!

Samantha

I was kidding about those college term papers.

A big thank you!

Hi readers!

I just wanted to take a moment and say how appreciative I am of all of you. I really had NO idea what kind of reaction people would have… and now I am so glad I actually went through with it.

I have received numerous messages, notes, phone calls, you name it. From more people than I would ever imagine, even people I don’t know or haven’t been in touch with in years. Every message has been so unbelievably heartwarming. Each with a story too- so many different situations, but so many common emotions that I have experienced and shared along this blog. I’m so glad you have felt comfortable relating and reaching out. Don’t ever stop! I may not be able to respond right away, but I will respond!

Anyway, so thanks for that! I hope I can still make you laugh, cry, or just keep coming back from more. I promise I’ve got enough to go around.

Always have your insurance card handy!

Just incase you needed a laugh after my last post

My 17-year-old brother Tommy had to stop by my house late one night last week to use my new printer/scanner/fax for when I work from home. He needed a copy of his insurance card for his baseball team’s trip to Atlanta. You know, liability stuff.

Can you tell it was the first time I used the printer? Hope that card fits in your wallet!… Along with anything else any 17-year-old boy may have in there.

Do you believe in magic?

The day is here! The day is here!

Today is the day I will be attending the highly anticipated MAGIC MIKE! Today is the day I have been waiting for for months.┬áIf you hear three high pitched women hootin’ and hollerin’ in the theater, chances are it may be my mom, my sister, and myself…and possibly a little tipsy.

Yesterday’s posts may have been a lot to take in, so to spice things up a bit, here’s a picture of my last dose of magic. Enjoy!

I had to hide his identity because later that night the group of us ran into this charming fellow at a bar. He was with a bunch of friends, so of course we bombarded him as we watched his face slowly turn to red. His friends had no idea he was stripping on the side.

No idea who this was, but from what I can remember, his ‘name’ was a European country I won’t mention and he used the radio for his performance. When the commercials came on, I’d say it was a little awkward.
