How Home Buying is Supposed to Look

This is what I thought home buying would look like (although after explaining my occupation to a mortgage broker, only to then be asked “What does your husband do?” I have my doubts…) Step 1) Couple finds dream home whilst drinking organic, fresh-squeezed orange juice and surfing the web on a trendy laptop.  (Note fresh…

Throwback Thursday: Date #4

Remember Date #4?  I certainly do.  And not because I’m still pining away for him (I’ve come a long way since I was 24) but rather because I’m still not quite sure what happened between us.  More importantly, I’m still not quite sure what happened to me.  Looking back, it seems a rather straightforward descent…

His Dream, Not Mine

I neglected to mention what happened when I called TWD last week to arrange the handoff. “Do you have a couple minutes?” I asked.  “I was angry when I said I didn’t want to see you.  I didn’t mean it.  But there are some things I need to ask you.  Why did you wait so…

The Rain Test

Eventually, I’m going to have to stop posting about TWD.  After all, no one is going to date a girl who blogs about her ex-boyfriend every day.  But today is not that day. Then again, today’s post isn’t actually about TWD.  It’s about me. Here’s the crazy thing: after TWD and I broke up, I…
