Make me laugh.

August 31, 2011

That’s one thing I can’t compromise on the next time around. I want him to make me laugh. And I don’t mean I want my next husband (there probably won’t be one) to make me laugh, or my next boyfriend (that’s a long way off), or the love of my life (I’m a non believer […]

Fish, Bicycles and Tables

August 27, 2011

I love the way this girl thinks. So (after reading that fabulous link above), tell me–what does he bring to the table? That guy you are dating or considering dating? Or, if you have no flames now, what about your ex? What did he bring to the table? If you are drawing a blank… well, […]

In need of putty.

August 7, 2011

My mother, a bona fide thrift expert, a finder of all things worth finding, hands me a copy of Gloria Steinem‘s Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem. “I got it for free,” she says, “Isn’t that amazing? And I’ve always wanted to read it.” I pick up the book and open the cover. I […]

Trapped (and free shoes).

August 2, 2011

I’m in an odd limbo right now when it comes to blogging and I don’t feel worthy of you, my reader. I owe you more than this, but for many reasons–some external, I can’t write what I want to write. I can tell you that I am happy. Incredibly happy. Content even. I don’t have […]
