Silly Woman

This morning, the alarm went off on the opposite side of my bed and I lie there and listened as someone else slapped the snooze button. Beside me, the lanky body of my four year old son lay sprawled out between us, legs strewn across Banks, arm tucked beneath my forehead. I watched the stillness […]

You Give A Blonde a Blender…

**FAIR WARNING: THIS MIGHT BE GROSS** So. If you don’t follow my Facebook page or my Twitter feed, you have maybe been wondering why I haven’t had anything to say in a week.  You may have thought “Oh, she must be so busy” or maybe “She’s happy and has nothing to say” or more than […]

Being A Single Parent Means Picking Your Battles… and your Roles

One of the hardest parts of becoming a single mother, for me, is the desire to be everything for my child. I desperately want him to have the childhood I had… the baking cookies, the team sports, the music lessons. I don’t want him to have moments when he thinks “Man, I could do that […]

Where I Admit to Drinking the Kool-Aid

I was never one to get too bogged down in office politics or high school politics or sorority, well, politics.  It’s not that I “go my own way” or anything, I just always assumed I wasn’t exactly the type to get picked first or last so I was content to reside in mediocrity when it […]

Being Neighborly

When I lived in Savannah, we had an apartment with soft gray carpets.  Although the floor was never really clean, due to my ex’s opinion that “cleaning the table” meant scraping crumbs onto the floor, it always sort of looked clean.  You couldn’t see the clumps of AJ hair or the tracked in dirt.  There […]

First World Problems

I’ve been struggling a lot lately with the concept of putting one foot in front of the other.  I know it’s what I’m supposed to be doing.  I know that I’m supposed to be the grown-up, supposed to get dressed and go to work every day, supposed to keep everything running smoothly. But it’s hard […]

Slow Motion Monday

Ever have one of those slow “NOOOOOO” moments? You know, when you’re doing something totally normal that just somehow goes awry? Because that just happened to me. I was minding my business, working on fixing a terribly written brief that’s due today. (And I can say it’s terribly written without remorse because I wrote it… […]

  • 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.

    I think fart jokes are funny, I'm pretty sure magic is real, and my life long dream is to buy a farm and write a novel while watching horses run around at a respectable distance. (Because horses are scary up close. Seriously.)
