Have I turned into a cold hearted sociopath? I’m pretty sure I took a Facebook quiz once that warned me of that very thing. Is no longer having a single fuck to give a real thing? I am starting to think that I’ve reached my threshold of crap and I may actually be dead inside.
I rarely watch the entertainment news or read the tabloids except for when I’m standing in a grocery store line up, which is almost never now that I can have my groceries delivered. The other day I was pinned on the couch by a sick sleeping child who I did not want to disturb so I indulged and watched a little ET Canada and Entertainment Tonight. Now I get that they have a job to speculate and sensationalize but oh my gawd people this shit is ridiculous and has to stop!
I’m not a huge fan of the Hallmark holiday that has us seeing pink and red for weeks in end in our local shops but there are some super cute gems that are handmade locally if you’re in the market for a swoon worthy card or gift.

Want to win over your valentine with a card you won’t find at the grocery store? Here are a few of my favorites:
If you or someone you know is a lover of local this subscription would make the perfect gift that keeps on giving year round.

I was invited over a month ago and at the time even though I was super hesitant about saying yes, the person doing the inviting was important to me so I did say yes. As the date drew nearer I was having second thoughts but he said he wanted me to be there so I wrangled a friend into going with me and I showed up
If you’re single you’re viewed as being flawed or damaged in someway. You get the constant, “Oh, you’re still single.” accompanied by the pity smile every time you head to an event solo. Maybe you come from a family who can’t deal with your single-ness and every family gathering turns into a discussion about how you aren’t getting any younger and you need to find a good man before you loose your looks and no one wants you anymore.
I have many issues, I don’t trust easily and it can take me months before I’ll let my guard down even a little. Like pretty much anyone else in the world who has ever been on a date I’ve been hurt, I’ve been used and I’ve been let down.
I apparently have a “type”. Not that I’m saying all men are the same but the ones I meet kind of are.
Everyone is making their New Years resolutions and asking what mine are… I don’t really have any. Not because I’m fabulous and have no need to improve myself but because I don’t believe in resolutions. I never really have. I don’t need the calendar to reset for me to keep moving forward and working on myself and striving to reach new goals and milestones.
