My Love Life "Glee" Style....

It may be that I watch too much "Glee" or it was the 2 hour drive I had in my car today, to and from school, but as I listened to my ipod the songs took me back to my past and current relationships.

I thought I would share the past 2 years of my dysfunctional love life "Glee" style... by song. Enjoy.

First off, this song speaks for itself. I'm pretty sure Taylor swift wrote this song for me. Word for word. Right down to the reference of being 19.

"Dear John" by Taylor Swift

So, the second guy I dated I fell for pretty hard, so hard I failed to realize in the 10 months I dated him, off and on, he HAD A SERIOUS GIRLFRIEND! OH WAIT! HE FORGOT TO TELL ME THAT! Idiot. Anyway, Mr. Farmboy quickly earned this song from me without hesitation.

"Cowboy Casanova" by Carrie Underwood

Moving on...

Guy #3 Well he's a mystery to everyone! Whenever I hear this song, I think of him for some reason... and not because he's dead... because he's not.

"Only the Good Die Young" by Billy Joel, done by Puck on "Glee"

Guy number four.
This guy I am still good friends with, and he is great, just REALLY indecisive. Like changing his mind about dating me 3 different times.

"Hot N Cold" by Katy Perry

And finally numero cinco....

This guy deserves my all time favorite song.
I love you Addison! I can't wait to spend forever with you!

"Love Story" by Taylor Swift

Single Mom

My second semester of school just started and I have spent a good portion of today in shock from my busy week. I am tired. It's after 2pm and I would go back to bed until tomorrow morning if River would let me.

I'm not much for complaining on-line, but lets get real here... being a single Mom is hard, and it really sucks! I have spent a total of 9+ hours in my car driving River and myself around. I have done 5 loads of laundry that are all sitting in a pile waiting to be folded, and it looks like a toy store threw up in my living room. The hours of homework I have is almost too much for me to bare. I have even started threatening River that if he wasn't good, Santa would come back for his presents, and instead of this upsetting River, he is excited to see Santa. Woopsie.

Here is the upside... The all-nighters, the black bags under my eyes and even watching the dumbest shows, like Mario are all worth it. I would do it 20 times over if it meant River was happy and healthy. I hope he sees my hard work, to do what I love, so that as he grows he will be determined to work hard to do what he loves.

I have been blessed to have some great examples of single Moms along the way that inspire me watching them first hand...

-My dear friend Rachel, who has a similar situation as mine, yet seems to do it all and she does it well! She has become one of my greatest friends and I adore her!

-One of my bosses, Kami, who really does it all! She is Mom and Dad, goes to every sports game, event, school activity etc. and adores her kids every movement! She works so hard to give her kids the best life! She was there at the beginning of my trek to single motherhood and has unknowingly held my hand through some of my worst days.

-Joelyn. She is in my program at school, has 5 kids, and is also AMAZING! I feel like people are brought into our lives for a reason, and she is there to help me keep working hard, because I know she understands how hard it all is between the projects, heartache and defeats!

...and most importantly...

-My Mom! She didn't become a single Mom until I was 14, all her other kids grown, but I was a doosie! She loved me better than anyone could ever love me at the hardest points in both our lives! She is my best friend and I confide in her for everything! The thing that has always amazed me is that I cannot recall ONE moment where I heard her complain about what was going on. She is incredible!

I know I will have many more nights when I lay in the fetal position, praying for my homework to burn, but doing it all for the better life for River is worth every second. So here's to all the single Moms out there... I raise my Dr.Pepper can to you!
