New friends = good times.

June 27, 2008

1. Julie and Zoe are on their way over. We’re headed to a music festival. Last Monday night we both went out (coincidentally our exes both have our kids on Monday nights). We were eating out when the Architect called me … and not her. I didn’t call him back and we spent most of [...]

Lessons from Cowboys.

June 23, 2008

Some things never change … My basement had a minor flood (not complaining because my little brother lives in Iowa City and has been sandbagging for weeks).

Flatten Your Fear & Win a Flat Iron!

June 21, 2008

We all have fears. If you read my blog, you know I’ve got plenty. Namely my fear of commiting to the wrong guy, my fear of my ex-husband watching our son solo for 36 hours a week or his absence from our lives. I like to think I’ve come leaps and bounds in the past [...]

O’ Daddy, Where Art Thou?

June 20, 2008

Benjamin has this nasty little habit of calling every man in sight “Daddy.” I’m sure if his father had a greater presence in his life this wouldn’t be the case. I’ve convinced myself, actually, that he does this because I’m a single mom. It’s just killing me. It happens in the grocery store, at the [...]
