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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Mommy is Special?

You know that moment when you’re just about to do something stupid and the air sort of shimmers and the world around you slows down?  You sort of know that you’re going to do something that’s going to embarass you greatly but you can’t actually do anything about it because you’re standing in quicksand and […]

Breaking the Rules

You know what I realized? I used to be funny. No seriously, bear with me… I did.  I read back through some of my old blog posts and I’m all “Where the hell did that funny chick go and who is this whiny self-important ass who is writing in her place?” See, divorce sort of […]

Generation X-actly.

At my last job, every time I got in the car with my boss, he made a point to tell me how lazy my generation is.  He hemmed and hawed about how we wanted everything handed to us, about how we wanted the shiny silver cup full of Dom Peringnon but we didn’t want to […]

Standard Operating Procedures

“I don’t know, I really like this guy.” I was talking to a friend of mine about a guy I know and discussing the fact that we’re planning a fun date in Atlanta next weekend.  She was patiently listening to me as I went through all my crazy and probably laughing to herself. “I just […]

A Home By the Sea

Last Thursday, I picked J up early from school and we drove to Columbia, South Carolina.  We pulled ourselves from bed early Friday morning and drove the last few hours to the beach I’ve called my second home since 1981, when my parents rented a condo the week that Tropical Storm Dennis came through North […]
