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 […]

Trust me… THIS is not a break.

When I was a kid, I took things like summer vacation, Spring break, Fall break, and Christmas break as a God send. My mom worked as a stay at home mom so when school was out, we were home and it was amazing: sleeping in, staying in pjs all day, watching cartoons, going to the […]

This is How You Do It…

(Fist bump to Montell Jordan for the title, amiright?) Even before I became a single working mother, I always heard a lot of “I just don’t know how you do it” from women who worked from home as either a mother or an employee of this or that company. They seemed to think there was […]

V8 is Totally Canned Tomatoes

This week at J’s school, they are doing Vacation Bible School in the mornings.  Apparently, last week there was a note somewhere on some piece of paper that detailed what that would mean for the week. I missed that note. Each day of this week calls for a different colored shirt, a different can of […]

The Let Down

After every milestone, there’s a bit of a let down. When I got back from my honeymoon, I felt a little sad that I’d never have another wedding and honeymoon. (HA!) When my ex told me there would be no more children, I got a lot sad that J would be an only child.  When […]

Pinterest Parenting? Nah, I’m Good.

I used to be one of the many:  the mom pacing the floor, totally worried people would think I’m an absentee mother, nursing my working mom guilt while I waited anxiously for the sign up sheet on this or that party to be pasted to the door so I could rush up with an eager […]

On Blogging (and stuff)

It feels like it’s been ages since I sat down and stared at the black and gray world of WordPress and my little slice of the Internet… even though it’s only been about a week.  Funny that seven days can feel like an eternity… guess that’s how the whole creation story makes the most sense? […]

Thursdays Don’t Mean Much Anymore

It’s been one of those weeks when every day I’ve thought to myself “TODAY is Thursday, right?” Only it wasn’t.   At least not until today. I don’t really know why I was so anxious for Thursday other than that it’s always not-so-secretly been my favorite day of the week, ever since college when Thursdays meant […]

Waiting for “Balance”

I spent the better part of today in a variety of semi-sterile waiting rooms; waiting on doctors for J, waiting on pre-op clearance, waiting on the dermatologist to tell me that yes, I do have poison ivy for the fourth time this year.   I spent so much time in these waiting rooms, that I spent […]

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 […]

  • 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.
