Trust me

As an attorney, people put a lot of trust in what I have to say. When I give them answers, they usually trust that I know what I’m talking about. When I make a suggestion, they trust it’s the right one.  In short, people invest a lot of trust in me. A lot of trust. […]

Playing Catch Up

There are three words that I have learned to despise when they appear at the start of any sentence in any conversation. Those three words? “Does your son…” Or, in the alternative “does your kid” or “Does J” or whatever… you get the picture. The reason I hate them? I am never prepared. Take, for […]

Random Acts of Christmas

It’s the week of Christmas. And all year round, I do a lot of moaning and groaning about how hard things are for me. About how I hate balancing work and home. About how dag-um hard everything is. But it’s Christmas. And there are people out there who have it way worse. So in honor […]

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons…

I took my son to the liquor store with me, today. I’m pretty sure there either is, or should be, a country song that starts or ends that way.  I felt sort of… dirty. Not to mention terrified that at any moment J was going to sweep an arm out and shatter every bottle in […]

The One Where I Make a Gingerbread House…

How hard could it be? They make Gingerbread House Kits. I felt like this was a no-brainer. One of the things on my “List” was to make a Gingerbread House so when I saw this in the store I got all types of excited. I envisioned a charming little centerpiece on the table made of […]

Making a Memory

So you know how I wanted to make memories with J?  Here’s one I hadn’t anticipated. All the way home from “school” today, I told J how he was going to get to “Sprinkle” cookies when we got home. I told him that I would help him make them very pretty. We got home, ate […]

My Motivation is Lacking

It is hard to stay motivated at work these days. Don’t get me wrong, I’m doing my job. I’m doing a damn good job at my job in my opinion. But the motivation is simply not there. I just don’t care any more. I’m beat. I’m exhausted. I’m tired. I’m over the drama of being […]

In which I try to change a tire….

This day started out like almost any other day. I got up, I fed the baby, I showered and dressed and got ready for work. J and I made the long drive in to daycare and on the way I called the doctor’s office to get him an appointment for his nasty cough he’s been […]

Oh Boy, what a Monday

Yesterday was plain awful.  (You can say that again…) YESTERDAY WAS PLAIN AWFUL! It started when J decided either that it was morning or that there were tiny, invisible men, stabbing him repeatedly. The end result was the same… massive. screaming. We’re so not used to him waking up in the middle of the night […]

Making Memories

I took J to meet Santa Claus yesterday. Overall, it was a totally uneventful trip. He was a little nervous initially when I plopped him down on that big red lap, but Santa seemed to understand that he was scared and he picked up a nearby book and began to read. J was hooked; here […]
