How to Choose Happy

My boyfriend always tells me that happiness is a choice. And usually I respond with a choice gesture from one of my more used fingers. But this morning, when my son woke me up for the second day in a row before 5am, I decided I’d give it a chance. So I lay very still […]

The Agony and the … Agony.

I grew up in a Southern Baptist church.  Although we had a Christmas “show” it consisted of the choir members singing and it wasn’t until I was much older that the church started doing a live nativity scene as part of the “show.”  As a result, I always had this idealized “The Best Christmas Pageant […]

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 […]

Playing Catch Up

There are three words that I have learned to despise when they appear at the start of any sentence in any conversation. Those three words? “Does your son…” Or, in the alternative “does your kid” or “Does J” or whatever… you get the picture. The reason I hate them? I am never prepared. Take, for […]

Decisions, Decisions

I have a lot of decisions to make. As the year comes to a close, I have to make some difficult decisions about where my life is heading and where my career is heading. And I don’t know how to make those decisions. Because when I went to law school, I wanted to be this […]

It’s all fun and games ’til someone gets PPA…

Yesterday, a paralegal at my office brought in her brand spanking new baby… three weeks old. He was, in a word, adorable. As we chatted about all the fun “new mom” things, it got me thinking back to when J was born and all the drama and wonder that unfolded then. All the stuff people […]

Frustration

I don’t normally post twice in one day, but I wrote my earlier post last night and I had to share my morning. I am BEYOND frustrated with J right now. Last night I went to bed at 10pm and woke up at 6 this morning. In between that time, my son woke me to […]

Harriet and Alexander

Pick your poison. I had a Harriet the Spy vs. Alexander weekend. I don’t know if you are familiar with either, but Harriet the Spy was one of my favorite books when I was little. I think they later made it into a movie with Michelle Trachtenberg. Regardless, the book was all about a little […]

Feeling the Fail

I feel like there is a giant FAIL on my forehead. Why? First, because I gave J formula last night. I didn’t want to do it; I really wanted to make it to six months with no supplements and I was just 12 days shy of that goal. I know I should be proud of […]

  • 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.
