Life tends to have many bitter bits we must swallow. My Momma has always told me you have to taste the bitter to know how sweet the sweet really is. Translation for those that do not understand metaphor…you have to … Continue reading

If my rants upset you, click away now. They’re better than therapy and chalked full of passion and a little snark. You have been warned.
When I was young, I really thought I was an expert on everything I had ever experienced. Not only that, I thought no one else in the entire history of mankind could have experienced what I did. To an extent, that 2nd one was true. I am Diane and no one in all of history will see everything quite the way I do. I remember not understanding why older people would act upset when I tried to add my vast amounts of knowledge to their inventories.

Some of you know my parents divorced when I was 7. What many do not know is the reason my parents divorced was because my biological father is a jackhole. No, really, he is a selfish person that told my begging mother to get out…he was tired of her.

Maybe now is the time to say I watched him break Momma’s jaw or beat my older brother with a 2×4. Or maybe how he continually cheated us with other women (when people cheat, they cheat their whole family.) Maybe now is the time to mention that he was perfectly nice when he was sober, but that was not enough for me to remember., or maybe that Momma would have stayed if she could of because back then you married for better or worse…it just so happened that she had an unbalanced portion of worse.
