Single Working Mothers: The Truth

Even now, almost two full years out from the horrible that is divorce, there are moments when the weight of my reality becomes too much to bear.  There are moments when I stand at the perimeter of my life and wonder how in the hell I’m doing any of the things I’m doing, much less […]

Post-Divorce Dating: How Men and Women Differ

After my last post on dating, I had a text conversation with a male friend of mine about the types of men I was choosing to date.  Let’s face it, you were all wondering, right? Wondering if my taste was irreparably flawed? Wondering if maybe I was making a conscious or unconscious choice to date […]

Promises

Last night, J told me he doesn’t like to go to sleep when he visits his father because he “dreams scary” when he’s there.  He told me that while he’s away from home he dreams that I’ve gone away and left him forever. Today is a really long time for a little boy.  Forever is… […]

Lessons from the Swingset

On Saturday afternoon, I tucked my seriously cranky child into his carseat and drove the short distance to an in town playground.  It sits out on a good bit of property so it’s a great place to go run off three year old frustration… if the playground isn’t enough, there’s the walk to the pond, […]

Perspective

Yesterday, I went to the gym to pound out a few more miles on the treadmill.  I was scheduled for five so I settled in for the long haul, feeling the tug of the motor beneath my feet and the beat of the bass in my ears.  To the left of me, an average sized […]

What Happened to Real Men?

It shouldn’t be so hard. You meet a guy, you go out, you have a few laughs.  Somewhere a long the way, you hold hands… you whisper secrets… you share jokes that no one else knows.  And then one day you realize, maybe that he’s right in more ways than he’s wrong, that he fits […]

Running To Stand Still

No doubt about it, 2013 is shaping up to be the year of the silent roaring… the year of the hushed screams… the year of the whirring buzz of energy spiraling just beneath the surface. I feel blanketed in something slightly resembling discontent only it’s less unhappiness and more like the hum of something I […]

Happy Friday!

It’s Friday and I’m posting over at Liberating Working Moms today on the perils of work/life (or is it life/work) balance.  It’s a cold and semi-blustery day down here and I’m gearing up for one hell of a kid-free weekend.  Tonight I’m having a fancy dinner with a fellow divorced mom, tomorrow I’m running 10 […]

Embracing the Moments I Have

When I first became a mom, I had visions of grandeur: there would be epic vacations, tea parties, forts in the living room.  We would play freeze tag in the front yard and hide and seek in the back.  We would snuggle up at night and read book after book after book.  I would spend […]

And I Raaaaaaan …

Like a lot of women, I spend a lot of time feeling like I’m not nearly good enough at nearly enough things: I’m not as thin as I was in high school; I don’t mother the way I think I ought to every time I read about someone else’s mothering style; I don’t eat healthy […]

  • 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.
