Romantic Crisis Averted



His introductory message is pleasant enough and he  mentions one of your hobbies as an activity that he enjoys as well. His profile photos seem legit and his profile does not scream "Girl, you in danger".

So you reply to his initial message and a nice exchange begins...until after the fifth message when he starts trying to lock you down. You read the message in question and decide to spend a few hours offline. When you log back in, he has sent you two additional messages which seem to fault you for not responding quick enough.

A feeling of déjà vu flashes through you. This is supposed to be the pre "getting to know you phase" and this guy is already trying to jump ahead 5 spaces. You have definitely been here before. Everything is quick and romantic in the beginning. Six months in, after the newness has worn off, he is pacing around like a caged animal. The only thing keeping him around is pressure from his friends and family to settle down with someone like you. No, thanks to that ever again.

You decide to block him without explanation and go on with the rest of your day.  Romantic crisis averted.

Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
