Sucker Punched

I grew up with a mother who stayed at home. I think this is important to the rest of my story, but if we’re being honest I’m not sure. See, when I was sick as a kid, I got to stay home. Sometimes, “staying home” meant going to my grandmother’s house and lying on the […]

It’s Just a Swollen Lymphnode

So… rationally, I believe I’m okay. Irrationally, I am thinking through a plan of action in the off chance that Dr. Google is correct and I should avoid going into any light of any kind, ever. On Tuesday, I spent the day on a military base with 40 of my favorite people. During the morning, […]

There’s Vomit in My Hair…

Today I’m home sick with a sick kid.  So far he’s thrown up in my hair, peed on the floor, kicked me just beside my knee cap, broken the cabinet in the kitchen, and yelled the word “NO” so many times that I’m still hearing it reverberating around the room.  On top of his irritable […]

Shingles

The last six months are catching up to me in a very real way.  For six months, I have kept my head up, shouldered the grief, and pushed forward with creating a life for myself and my son.  For six months, I have kept it reasonably together, kept it moving, and kept on keeping on.  […]

Working Woes

My son has reactive airway disease. This is a nice way of saying he probably has asthma but they don’t want to put it on his chart in case, by some miracle, he out grows it. This “diagnosis” has several fun side effects: (1) the rate for insurance on J alone is astronomical thanks to […]

Road Tripping With Baby

For those of you interested, I went to the doctor yesterday and found that I am the proud “owner” of a massive urinary tract infection. I feel like the poo I threw around the nursery yesterday morning. But enough about that. That’s not what I want to talk about today. Today, I want to talk […]

The one where I admit to being a monkey…

Well, this week has already gotten off to a fantastic start. Yes, that was sarcasm. (Sidebar: When will someone create sarcasm font?!?!) First things first, I had a back ache all weekend. At one point it was so bad that I had to sit down while Husband and I were at the mall. LIKE AN […]

In the Midst of Madness…

Some mornings just don’t work. If you’re a working woman (or man) you know what I mean. (and that includes Stay at Home Moms… you just work at home). You don’t get any sleep, the coffee maker is broken, there’s nothing to eat in the house, your hair won’t fix the way it usually does, […]

Delayed Posting

Sorry this post is so late in the day. All I have to say about that is ARRRRRRRGH. It has been SUCH a day today I can’t even tell you. First, J didn’t sleep last night. At all. Well, that’s not true, but he did cry from about 6 until he passed out around 9:30. […]

  • 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.
