Riding the Crazy Train

Beginning sometime on Saturday morning, my throat started hurting.  It was bearable but still painful.  By Saturday night, I was sick. Like full on, up every hour in the middle of the night, can’t swallow my own spit, sick.  I can’t remember the last time I felt that crappy.  The worst part is that the party no […]

Momma Friends

I think I’ve said it before but being a mom is like being a member of a secret society.  You can find kindred spirits almost anywhere. You know them by the worn circles under their eyes, the exasperated sighs on their lips.  You recognize the ketchup stains on their shirt and the dried snot on […]

Rough Morning.

I dropped my kid off at daycare today.  I didn’t want to do it.  He has a broken arm and an ear infection.  I shouldn’t have to take my kid to daycare when he has a broken arm and an ear infection.  It didn’t help that he cried and reached for me when I left.  […]

Having Kids Changes Everything…

Today, something atrocious happened. And it’s something that hasn’t happened to me since… well, since I was just a little girl.  And it got me thinking about all the other things that have happened lately that never used to happen.  This year has been crazy already and I have a feeling it’s going to get […]

Ten Reasons being a mom rocks (even when it doesn’t)

I need a pick me up this morning.  We’re in week five billion and seventy-three of J being sick, plus he’s in a cast, plus it’s coming up on the end of the month and I need to be billing more and instead I’m at home with my feverish child who thinks throwing blocks at […]

A Very Merry Un-Birthday

I have a headache and my son is 18 months old today.  These things can not be mutually exclusive. I don’t exactly remember the moment that I realized I am the mother of a toddler. It may have been when I said “Give Dada a night-night kiss” and he toddled over to Husband for a hug […]

Living in HD

Tonight I sat in the living room of my tiny apartment and watched How I Met Your Mother on our new 40 inch television.  Just as the credits started to roll, Husband turned away from his computer for a moment, flipped up his headphones and said “You know you can watch that in high definition, […]

Project: Me

It’s hard to post any sort of update to Project: Me this week.  Not because I didn’t make some important strides last week but because I am just feeling so blah today that I don’t know that I have the energy to be positive.  Let’s give it a whirl, though, shall we? Last week I […]

The Red Dress Club

This week’s prompt: Write a piece – 600 word limit – about finding a forgotten item of clothing in the back of a drawer or closet. Let us know how the item was found, what it is, and why it’s so meaningful to you or your character. “Is this drawer yours or hers?” I asked […]


J has a broken arm and I have a broken spirit.  But we’re both repairing… slowly.  If you missed the firestorm that was my twitter stream last night, let me recap: 5:00- I got home from work, ready to enjoy my first night to myself all week. Husband and I had decided to send J […]
