Chasing a Rainbow

This has been one of those weeks where nothing seems to go right. Granted, it’s Friday and we made it this far, but it has just been a week where everything has gone wrong.  On top of all my petty, insignificant problems, I have this friend… this stunningly gorgeous inside and out friend.  She’s hilarious; sometimes […]

Almost (Not Nearly) Famous

If you had asked me what I wanted to be when I was a little girl, I would have said in the alternative, a world famous pediatrician, a world famous missionary a la Mother Teresa, a world famous actress or a world famous writer.  The tie-in? You got it… world famous.   I read a post […]

My Box of Life

Some people laughingly repeat that life is like a box of chocolates, but I disagree.   See, with a box of chocolates, you can sample back and forth, putting back the things you don’t like and starting a new.  And when it’s all said and done, if you get to the end of the box, there’s always […]

Saying Goodbye

I did my research. I spent time on Saturday looking online and making a few phone calls.  I took notes and even made a pros and cons list. I took my time, spending the afternoon out in the yard, mulching and planting and thinking it through.  J and I went out to Target and I […]

Slow Motion Monday

Ever have one of those slow “NOOOOOO” moments? You know, when you’re doing something totally normal that just somehow goes awry? Because that just happened to me. I was minding my business, working on fixing a terribly written brief that’s due today. (And I can say it’s terribly written without remorse because I wrote it… […]

New Mother Advice

This has been a sad week.  And if there’s one thing I have taken out of this week it is that I was uninformed as a new mother. See, I took J to the grocery store with me every time I went.  I enjoyed the oohs and ahhs from fellow shoppers.  I enjoyed having him […]

Fire Alarms, Snakes, and Horse Heads in the Bed

There was a dead snake on the driveway in front of my back door yesterday when I got home from work. But perhaps I should rewind, because the strangeness of my day actually started around 2:30 when the receptionist at my office buzzed me to let me know J’s daycare was on the phone. This […]

A Mother’s Prayer

This morning marked the first time in a long time that I cried on the way to work.  But this morning was different… I didn’t cry for the loss of my marriage or my husband, I cried for a mother’s loss.  I cried for a mother I do not even know. A mother who faced […]

Write on Edge: RemembeRED

It is only half-light outside and sometimes still so dark that I blink once, then twice just to adjust to the stillness.  No matter how late or early my eyes open, there is always the spring bounce of the bed beside me; my sister is always awake first, rustling with sheets or books or whatever she has […]

Monday Morning Blues

I have a bad case of the Mondays. It happens to me every time J has visitation with his father or I have a lazy weekend where I’m sick as a dog and I don’t get to spend a lot of time with J.  I miss my kid.  I don’t like getting him up out […]
