My 2010 Favorites

Fear not, Friday Free for All will return next week so if you’re wondering why I haven’t posted your bit, that’s why! The holidays sort of interfered. I previously shared with you guys several things I couldn’t live without over the holidays but that list turned out a little different than I had intended. I […]

Trust me

As an attorney, people put a lot of trust in what I have to say. When I give them answers, they usually trust that I know what I’m talking about. When I make a suggestion, they trust it’s the right one.  In short, people invest a lot of trust in me. A lot of trust. […]

Playing Catch Up

There are three words that I have learned to despise when they appear at the start of any sentence in any conversation. Those three words? “Does your son…” Or, in the alternative “does your kid” or “Does J” or whatever… you get the picture. The reason I hate them? I am never prepared. Take, for […]

Decisions, Decisions

I have a lot of decisions to make. As the year comes to a close, I have to make some difficult decisions about where my life is heading and where my career is heading. And I don’t know how to make those decisions. Because when I went to law school, I wanted to be this […]

Back to the Daily Grind

The worst part about having a break for the holidays, even if it’s a short one, is that eventually… the break is over. The extra time with family and friends comes to an end and you find yourself right back where you were before. Sure, you might be a little heavier, you might have a […]

McFatty Monday

Well it’s Monday. And it’s the Monday after Christmas which means… ugh. I tried really hard to make good choices over the holidays. I tried to eat healthy, I really did. But guys… it’s CHRISTMAS. It’s the time of cookies and pies and cakes… in particular, my mother’s six layer coconut cake and my 94 […]

Why I Get Out of Bed

His hairline looks like a military cut. He says “peas” when we tell him to ask nicely. When he wants a book read, he picks it up, toddles over, climbs in my lap and says “Ba Ba?” He calls everything with wheels “Car.” He points out any and every thing round and proudly announces “BALL!” […]

I Need Help.

The thing about depression is that it never really goes away. It’s in the car behind you at the stop light, easing forward until it almost taps your bumper. It’s the bing of an email in your inbox. It’s the buzzing vibration of your telephone, signaling a voice mail or a text or an incoming […]

McFatty Monday

My dear, sweet, wonderful friend “Blair” did this great thing called “McFatty Monday.” It was her way of holding herself accountable for the weight she wanted to lose. It was her way of shouting to the world “WORLD… I MUST LOSE WEIGHT!!!” And you know what? She lost it. So I’m following in her amazing […]

Random Acts of Christmas

It’s the week of Christmas. And all year round, I do a lot of moaning and groaning about how hard things are for me. About how I hate balancing work and home. About how dag-um hard everything is. But it’s Christmas. And there are people out there who have it way worse. So in honor […]
