This isn’t what I imagined


This isn’t what I imagined at this stage of my life. I’m not saying I’m unhappy with my current non-relationship status (which is single) but I guess growing up Catholic and being surrounded by friends who traditionally got married at a young age, like myself, that life was going to play out that you’d be married forever and grow old together no matter what and that was. it.

Well, it didn’t end up that way. It very well could but who knows. Right now it’s slim to none and slim just left the building lol.

Anyway, this is for all the single people out there who are feeling hopeless, frustrated, confused, and sometimes relieved. We are single. Trying to date. Dating going nowhere. Starting dating and it turned into a dead end. Then I think to myself, crap, would I really want to go back to the way it was? Hell no. Is there someone out there who I am compatible with? Who the freak knows.

It is what it is and in the mean time you have to do what makes you happy.

Sooooo lol I started camping with my sister and bro-in-law a few years ago. This year I decided to get my own site. I thought my kids were coming with me but they bailed. Yup. That’s a teenager for ya.

That’s okay though. I want to give it a go setting up my site by myself and see how it goes. My sister will only be one site over so if I do run into any issues I can give them a holler. If this works out like I am hoping it does, I’ll go solo next time.

We are heading to Bowman Lake again. Love it. Beautiful campsites. Not too crowded and not far from home. About an hour and a half.

Oh and I am brining Jet man.

A couple of points I am trying to make in post is that there is an ass for every seat. Don’t give up but don’t stop living your life in the process.

I set up the tent in my living room to give it a test run and it took me literally 3 minutes. It’s an Ozark Trail Instant Cabin 6 person tent. It says that it takes 60 seconds to set up but being I am brand spanking new at this it took me 3 minutes which isn’t terrible. Packing it up, not so much. Ha. Good thing I wasn’t having a cocktail or it probably would have been on fire.

Jet Man.

What a great read for the summer!! Trust me and get it!!


Love it!!!

Holy sh*t! I did it!


I did it. I booked a campsite for the boys and I. This is one step closer for me to actually get to go camping solo. Over the past 2 years we have been going with my sister and her husband. This year we kind of graduated. We are going camping at the same campground with them but at a different campsite.

Then…. I took it upon myself to book a site just for the boys and I at a different time and place all together.

The campground we are going to is called Limekiln and it is up in the Adirondacks of NY.

I am actually looking into investing in a small rv that sleeps 3. Since my boys are turning 17 and 18 in September, I think I will be going on my own next summer. I think that a small rv might be better when I am alone as opposed to tent camping. Gotta have room for my dog! haha

So here is our site that I booked in July at Limekiln.

I am beyond excited.

All it takes are baby steps when it comes to accomplishing anything you want. Life is too short not to take a chance.

I just wanna be


Why does life have to be so difficult sometimes? I want stability. Is that a bad thing? I am a one man woman. I feel like the ones who approach me are full of lies. They want a hookup not a partner. I am tired of the games. I am tired of the intermittent phone calls. I am not there to fill your quick gap. I’m done. Stability is what I want. Not a full commitment but just reassurance that you will always be there.
