Choosing Happy

When I was married, I spent a lot of time wondering why things weren’t better. I did a lot of silent judging of my husband and a lot of not-so-silent judging. I was angry and lonely and bitter and probably not that fun to be around. And I think, honestly, it’s because I just couldn’t […]

Decidedly Messy but Oh So Happy

In the days, weeks, and months after divorce, I was convinced I was totally broken. I was ruined for all eternity, never to love again… never to be in a relationship again… never to feel that sweet rush of comfort that comes from just having someone beside you; someone who gets you, knows you, and […]

Calling in Sick… to life.

Today is one of those days when the only right and proper thing to do when you wake up is to pull the covers fully over your head and pretend that it’s still the weekend. Christ on a cracker, guys, I’m OVER my so-called life. My sweet, charming, adorable child has been possessed by demons […]

Horses are Scary (but not as scary cute as my kid…)

On Friday of last week, my boss closed the office early and had all of us out to her property for a “celebration” which included catered food, bluegrass music, horseback riding and lots of wide open spaces.  J was in heaven as he pretty much thinks he “needs” a horse; I, on the other hand, […]

Thursdays Don’t Mean Much Anymore

It’s been one of those weeks when every day I’ve thought to myself “TODAY is Thursday, right?” Only it wasn’t.   At least not until today. I don’t really know why I was so anxious for Thursday other than that it’s always not-so-secretly been my favorite day of the week, ever since college when Thursdays meant […]

My So Called Toddler

Yesterday, we had a play date with a boy in J’s class and his parents.  They came over for dinner and the boys played for a while until their son apparently went to play with a toy that J didn’t want him to play with.  A small argument ensued and I did what all parents […]

Discontent Lives Here

I worked a long day yesterday. It was a hard day, full of disappointments and set backs, and I left the office in a really lousy mood.  I got to daycare only to be handed two bags of dirty clothes and a conversation with his teacher about what we needed to do to work on […]

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 […]

Semi-Navigating The Doldrums

In high school, college and even in law school, we had a Spring Break.  It fell during the period between Christmas/New Year’s Eve and Easter … a welcome breather to break up the loooooong stretch of time between, well… breaks. Now that I’m out in “the real world” I crave a Spring Break. This long […]

When My Bankroll is Getting Small…

One of my favorite Christmas movies is Irving Berlin’s White Christmas. (Lord help me if they ever try to remake THAT.) I love the silly plot lines, I love the happy endings, and I love the music.  If you haven’t seen the movie, at one point, Bing Crosby’s character is singing to Rosemary Clooney.  The […]
