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 Somewhere Else…

Rather than try to bore you with the fact that I have nothing to say today, I’ll direct you to my contributor post over at Liberating Working Moms!  I’m coming clean about television… it’s time.

A Cry for Attention

At the end of the work day, I am exhausted. I spend all day answering questions, solving problems, and talking to all sorts of people.  The only thing I want to do when I leave the office is put on my pajamas, eat some dinner, and maybe watch a little television.  I just want to relax. Today, I […]

If I Admit It’s My Fault, Will You Quit Blaming Me?

When J was still a very small baby, maybe five months old, he was diagnosed with reactive airway disease.  After about our fourth visit to the pediatrician in four weeks, my doctor looked at me and “kindly” told me that if there were any way for me to work it so that I could stay […]

Sick Days

For me, the hardest part of being a working mom are the week days when J is coughing and sneezing and generally miserable. Because the “mom” part of me wants to be home to care for him.  The “mom” part of me wants to stay in our jammies and make soup and hot chocolate and […]

Two Crazy Weeks…

Over the course of the past two weeks, I have been in the office for approximately two full days.  The rest of my time has been spent in the car, in Atlanta, conducting hearings, attending mediations, meeting with clients or sitting through countless depositions.  As a result of my veritable absence from the office, the […]

I’m Still a Full-Fledged Mother, Even if I Work Outside the Home…

This morning, I sat at my desk and commiserated over the telephone with a dear friend of mine who is the proud parent of a one year old.  She was talking about how hard it is now that he’s fully mobile and pining for the days when she could put him down and know he […]

Just one of those Days…

I have started and stopped no fewer than four blog posts today. Part of my problem is that I want to whine and complain yet I feel entirely too blessed to justify any of it.  I want to stomp my feet and rail about how my day was long and my clients were unhappy.  I […]
