I was up early on Sunday…

So I watched this program Sunday morning on PBS. I don’t know what it was called. I don’t really remember much about it except that it was a panel of women discussing topics that relate to women. Chime in if you know what show it was because I totally thought it was awesome. The reason […]

We’re Housing Edmund Hillary…

Around 5:30 on the afternoon of November 28th an event happened that shook our world.  To say that everything changed is an understatement. Even the dog is scared. What was this “magnificent” world changing event? My son learned how to climb on the sofa. Seriously. He threw a leg up and then scratched and clawed […]

It’s the Holiday Season…

Ah Thanksgiving. A time to spend with family or friends; a time to think on everything you are thankful for throughout the year… a time to eat your weight in turkey or stuffing or some type of bacon wrapped sausage casserole. Or if you’re me, a time to eat twice your weight in a vegetarian […]

Running Down A Dream

I have thin skin. And I don’t mean that you can see the veins through my skin, although you can, I mean that I figuratively have very thin skin. I always have had thin skin and it has never served me well. I share this with you because, well, I think you should know that […]


I don’t know much about… well, anything… but what I do know about children is that absolutely everything that happens under the age of five can apparently be characterized as that lovely word… “Phase.” As in “Oh he’ll phase out of that” and “Oh, that’s just a phase.” It’s what people say when they don’t […]

Suit up, Law Momma.

I would love to tell you all about something more exciting than what I have to say today. But someone in my Atlanta office thinks I’m competent enough to be handling a Magistrate Court case today so I’m off to court. In my pretty dress and snazzy shoes. I hope the judge is impressed. I […]

I’m no Perry Mason

Yesterday, I left the house at 7:30 and didn’t get home until 6:30. I spent over six hours of my day inside my car. I met with four different people in two different locations and took a lot of scrawly notes on my trusty legal pad. I got lost three times thanks to Mapquest. I […]

Working Mom Woes

This weekend I worked my ass off. I got up on Saturday morning, made a big pot of Peppermint Creme coffee, flipped on the Seasons Greetings music channel, and spent some quality time with my kid. We read the same book over and over and over again, because that’s what he loves. He finishes each […]

True Confessions

I am not supermom. I know, that doesn’t really come as a huge surprise but I felt like I needed to just let it all out today. There are things I do not do that I should do. There are things that I do that I should not do. And sometimes I paint a glossy […]

Is it Monday already?

I came into a messy office this morning. My phone voicemail light was blinking like it’s life depended on it… seventeen messages. Awesome. My chair was stacked high with all the mail I received last week and last Monday’s coffee mug was still collecting dust in front of the computer. Somehow? I don’t think the […]
