I keep this blog to give myself a space to talk about my thoughts (and, god help us, my feelings) about being a single, queer mom dealing with having had weight loss surgery. I love my daughter with all of my heart. I really like other people's pets. I'm a wise-ass and I'm nice. I'm all about good grammar and spelling, but I still make mistakes. My friends and family are rock stars and tether me to the earth.
