For those of you who missed the final product on facebook… I’m pretty proud of how it turned out!    

Walk Feminine, Talk Feminine…

In viewing my life as the parts of all my sum, something has suddenly occurred to me… I think I’ve forgotten how to be a woman. When I was a girl, it never occurred to me that I would ever be anything other than who I was at any given moment.  I was happy and […]


I’m not sure why I did it.  I don’t know if it was a need to say good bye or a need to remember the feeling of being loved, but today, I wore my wedding rings.  I clasped the necklace he gave me when we were still dating around my neck, and hooked the matching earrings […]

Intelligence is relative…

Oh yesterday.  Yesterday was a fun little reminder of all the things I don’t know, and don’t do quite right. Just before lunch time, I came up with the oh-so-brilliant idea of washing the driveway off.  I got out the leaf blower and attacked the layers of pine straw and dirt, revealing a noticeably gray […]

Single Successes

Oh Friday, how I’ve longed for you since… Sunday.  And now you’re here and the air conditioning is broken in my office and I find myself in an outfit that doesn’t quite match.  But let’s put all that aside and love each other anyway, because you brought me a glorious mix of music on my […]

Some mornings…

This was not my finest morning. Around 4:00 am, J woke up begging for “More night night bottle.”  I tried to ignore him for as long as possible because usually he drifts back to sleep without incident.  Not so this morning.  Finally, close to 5:30, he managed to get back to sleep so needless to […]

In Case You Were Wondering…

Panda and Mickey Mouse are having quite the eventful day… Once I taught them how to type, it was all systems go.   Until Panda found the gavel. And decided he would go all Judge Judy on Mickey’s behind.           And then they got away from me… and all hell broke […]

I Have Many Leather Bound Books…

I am a lawyer. I am a professional.  I work in a professional office, doing professional, scholarly, and oh-so-important things.  I wear suits and high heels.  I am called “Mrs. Momma” no one calls me “Law.”  I write briefs and answer phone calls and fight with other lawyers over really important things.  I research the law […]

Just a little ditty

In the mornings, J and I brush our teeth together.  We dance around the bathroom like crazy folk, me brushing and him basically sucking on his toothpaste.  (I do a little brushing for him after he is finished.) This morning, I tried, yet again, to teach him how to actually “brush” his own teeth.  He […]


My attorney sends me emails entitled “R v R.”  As though the letters are at war.  As though we stand as equals, squared up to duel it out in the American justice system.  As though we are the same person… “R.”  Both of us “R.” We were the same once, I think.  We had the same dreams […]
