Effort. Ugh. I’m exhausted just typing it. If you’re making the effort to do anything in life, that means that whatever it is that you’re doing isn’t coming easily to you. Whether it’s learning something new, keeping a friendship or relationship healthy, or just getting out of bed…you’re concentrating on getting [...]Posted in widdahoodposts | 4 Comments »
Okay. Tacky title. Sorry. I was trying to come up with something witty and I think I missed. Another November 19th has come and gone. For most of you, it’s just another fall day spent at work or at home or dreading the family that’s coming to visit you later this week [...]Posted in birthdays | 1 Comment »
You all know that I love to pass on books that have an impact on me and I never write about something unless I think it’s worth spending your hard-earned money on. I know we all have our own taste when it comes to “widow reads” – some like the more self-help approach [...]Posted in book, widdahoodposts | No Comments »
So, I feel like there is plenty of gloom and doom on widow blogs and, usually, as milestones approach, I’m one of those widows who’s gloomin’ and doomin’. But not this year. I always think it’s important to write about the things that we’re all trying to overcome because it usually makes [...]Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »
Viduity -[vi-doo-i-tee] noun: quality, state, or period of being a widow or widower; widowhood. With the proliferation of social media, you can now put labels on yourself for all to see. Tell everyone who you are, where you work, what you look like, where you went to school, and for the brave…RELATIONSHIP STATUS. Mine was [...]Posted in Uncategorized | 4 Comments »
I recently posted an article on the Widow Chick Facebook page about men seeking out gender specific bereavement groups because they feel they grieve differently. Well…of course they do! I can’t understand the need to go out and buy a muscle car after the death of a spouse (as some of my widower friends have [...]Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments »
Back-to-school time is here, yet again and the vibe in the old Widdahood is that we’re all struggling. It occurred to me this year (yes, it’s taken me 4 years to figure this out) that this time of the year…well…. It sucks. This is yet again one of those “Milestone Moments” (also [...]Posted in Uncategorized | 5 Comments »
Widow Chick recently wrote a blog, “How’s Your Memoir Coming Along?” and shared her thoughts on the topic and widows writing their memoirs. Personally, I think that it is great for ANYONE to share their life journey with the world. Widowed on not. Life is full of various circumstances, situations, trials and tribulations; and [...]Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »
I have created a section under “Discussions” called Book Club (it’s towards the bottom). Each “Topic” under Book Club will be the selection name and the date of the “meeting.” Book Club participants can post topics they would like to discuss about the book during the meeting, which will take place at a scheduled date [...]Posted in widdahoodposts | 3 Comments »
I’m not much of a New Year’s person. I have friends who can’t wait to party and live it up…but since I’ve never been much for following the rules, I choose more low key holidays to party like a rock star. Like Flag Day. New Year’s Eve has always been pretty quiet for me. I [...]Posted in holidays | 6 Comments »
