Fathers

Father’s Day brought out a whole mess of emotions this year, this first year where we have a stepdad and husband. There were obligatory pancakes and sausage and gifts and cards. There was a little tennis, a little playground time, and some shopping. And then, as evening rolled around, there were tears. So many tears. […]

Thinking Out Loud

Yesterday, I promised my son frozen yogurt after school. I wasn’t feeling well and the thought of soft serve frozen yogurt sounded like perfection on my throat. We drove the short distance to a store, pulled in, and trouble started. Closed. No problem, I told J. There’s another one near my office. So we hit […]

Closure

Some would say I’m a glutton for punishment. Some would say I’m living in a fantasy world of my own design. Some will just call me crazy. But I needed closure. We’d been back and forth so many times; he’d promised to change and I’d agreed then disagreed then agreed again. I knew he said […]

Road Trip Day One

So I lied. I have a little time this morning before we head out… again… and thought I’d check in. My mother made the brilliant suggestion that I leave last night and drive up to my in-laws house. GENIUS! It shaves 2 hours off the trip today. I’ll tell you what wasn’t genius… driving two […]

Pity Party of one, your table is now available…

I can’t believe that J has *another* ear infection. What is this madness? This is his third (well, fourth, if you count the double one as two separate) ear infection in three weeks. No wonder the poor child isn’t sleeping! Yesterday afternoon I was too scared to even take his temperature because he was so […]
