Breakfast in bed.

October 28, 2008

My father loved bringing my mother breakfast in bed. He would also clean the dishes after dinner – every single night, even when he cooked. When he’d come home from work he’d seek her out, “Where is my beautiful wife?” “Upstairs Dad, ” we’d sigh. When he found her he’d scoop her up into a […]

My worst enemy…

The Dirty Laundry.

October 23, 2008

Every Wednesday night I take stock of the damage. Kitchen. Trashed. Living room. Even worse. I don’t even walk up to Benjamin’s room, I always save this for later so as not to send my body and mind into complete convulsions. But it’s just as bad. I’m not completely innocent here – much of the […]

Men, men, men. They certainly are falling from the sky lately. Leah, of Mama, a phenomenal single mom blog I just discovered, asked me what my secret was in her comment on my last post. And I have to answer because I think each and every one of you has the potential to unlock […]
