Honest feelings…RAW.

Let’s see how can I start this without it going South. Oh, who the fuck cares! Here it goes. I was honest with someone and they didn’t like it. What happened to constructive criticism and being truthful about your feelings? What happened to letting things out to make them better? WTF happened to HONESTY? When…

Finding the quiet time…

These past few weeks I have hustled to get Mancave Toyz into a few local stores and added us to a few events for the next 2 months. It’s been great and I am grateful. I have also started to create my own line of leather and wooden accessories. The response is a bit slow…

Becoming a full time BOSS BABE!

There’s a logic that in order to find yourself you have to lose yourself. And that is exactly what I did and what I am finding is amazing! I resigned from my “full-time” position at the roofing company and became the BOSS BABE for Mancave Toyz. I enjoyed my job and my employers were very…

Improving

The last of the holiday confetti has fallen and the new year begins with many resolutions and new beginnings. But what did I learn from the old beginnings and old resolutions? I’ve learned to move forward daily with hope, faith and health. What about Love? Oh, that’s there everyday and it’s called loving me! Loving…

CHUCK “THE YORKIE” ROSENBLOOM

It’s been 8 weeks and everyday seems like you were just here yesterday. Little reminders of you linger in this house and in my heart. I can hear the tip tap of your paws on the wooden floor. I can feel you rub up against my legs as I am cooking in the kitchen. I…

Reinventing the wheel of MY LIFE.

It’s September 30, 2018, 3 more months of 2018 and it comes to an end and I want this year to go away. But for the next few months I will look at life a different way. “Your outlook on life is a direct reflection on how much you like yourself.” ~Lululemon That quote says…

Not what you expected at 47…

Being 47 has been hard, and especially in 2018. I’m not going to lie, it’s been really rough. Most of the time I’ve felt emotionally and mentally drained. But what I’ve learned most within these past few months, is to love fiercely. I am usually an open book, but I closed those chapters because I…

Is life really better with sisters?

I am sure I will get plenty of grief for this blog, but I am also sure that I am not the only one that feels this way. Let me start off by saying, I know I have a lot of “sister” friends, but I don’t have any blood sisters. What God and my parents…

What makes us a couple….

“I don’t believe in being or having incomplete partners. I want to be her fitness accountability partner, her travel companion, and her healer. I want her to be my source of passion, my cheerleader, and my safe haven from this mad world. I want us both to give everything we have to each other.” Sylvester McNutt This…

dear 2017…

…I leave you behind. Most end of the year blogs begin with being thankful for the year. Well, I am not, it’s 2018 and I am ready for you! I am ready to move forward this year and be happy. I will learn to live in the moment, plan a great future and travel more…

Birthday Blog

In a few hours I will say goodbye to another year in the life of Jo Ann Rosenbloom. I am grateful and lucky to be able to celebrate another year. Though at times it can be exhausting and I feel that I’ve accomplished so little,  I am reminded how blessed I am. Yes, 46 yrs…

Disconnected

There’s a disconnection between us, there’s no life.  There’s a disconnection among us, there’s no space.  There’s happiness, there’s hate.  There’s faith, there’s disappointment.  There’s a disconnection between us, there’s no life.  We pass by each other and smile, but no words.  We look at each other, but don’t see eye to eye.  We look…
