Defense Work Means Never Having to Say You’re Sorry

**This is a rant.  It should not be taken to mean that all defense lawyers are heartless, soulless people.  I have the privilege of working with some truly awesome WC defense attorneys… I also bear the burden of having to work with some who flat out suck and refuse to play by the rules.  So […]

A Time To Fly

Friday usually means a day of anticipation for the weekend, a day of wrapping up things around the office and preparing for the week ahead.  Friday usually means… relief. But this Friday is a little different.  There is relief, but it is a bittersweet, birdsong of release rather than the mundane cycle of another work […]

Being a Parent … even through Divorce

I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to be a parent lately. Because it’s about more than just birthing a child. It’s more than having a child residing in your home, or paying child support, or showing up or planning birthday parties. I seem to read a lot about what it isn’t… how […]

I pissed myself yesterday… how was YOUR day?

J was a c-section baby.  I’d always heard that vaginal birth lead to a lot of bladder control issues so I felt secure in the knowledge that, though I would have preferred not to have a c-section, at least I wouldn’t have the whole pee when you sneeze scenario that a lot of women have. […]

Mr. Right Now

When I first found out that my marriage was completely, irretrievably broken, I felt certain that I would never… COULD never… let anyone into my heart ever again.  Sure, I wanted to date… I wanted to date the hell out of some really hot guys so I could rub it all over my Ex’s face […]

A Time to Cry

You know those moments when you sort of hover over your body and look down on your life with the distant, observational eye of an outsider?  And then you realize that you’re freaking ridiculous and you wonder why no one is coming to strap you into a straight jacket and haul you away? Yeah. That […]

Thursday Rant and Ramble

One of the hardest things for me, as a female attorney, is the expectation of bitchiness. I do not say that tongue in cheek… I mean it seriously.  When people find out that you are an attorney, as a woman, they primarily think you are a ball busting, man hating, pant suit wearing, she devil […]

I Love my Dove®!

Now that I’ve started dating again, I’m spending a lot more time (and money) on feeling… well… pretty.  I get pedicures.  I strictly obey with the every 6 weeks haircut rule.  I spent a small fortune on brand name, look your best make up including all the special brushes that you see in a salon […]

Giving up The Ghost

On one of our first “real” dates, my Ex and I went to a pizza restaurant.  We loaded up our bellies on heavily buttered and garliced bread and similarly garliced pizza.  We held hands and laughed, walking back down the leaf decorated road, until I shivered… announcing that my nose was freezing cold.   In a […]

Handing out Roses

So my week hasn’t started out quite as great as I’d hoped, seeing as how my AC is out at home and it’s only 90 some degrees down here.  But let’s face it… no one dropping by here this morning gives one crap about my AC or how my Monday is going. You want to […]

  • I'm a divorced, single mom to a pre-schooler, a full-time attorney, and a semi-reluctant vegetarian. I work hard and when given the chance, I play hard... but I'm almost never given the chance.

    It's possible that I never outgrew 7th grade mentality, as I still laugh when anyone says anything that can be remotely construed as sexual. Let's face it, if you're not down with "That's what s/he said" at the end of almost any sentence, we're probably not going to get along all that well.

    I drink more than I should, I run more than I should, and I laugh as much as I can. So I'm pretty much winning at life.
