Texting while Dating: A Cautionary Tale

May 24, 2017

Some typos can’t be deleted. Introducing Wild Animal Man. I’ll explain plenty more about him in future posts. All you need to know for the purpose of this tale is, we first met when we randomly ran into each other twice in two weeks, and then we had one great date. Also, his name might seem like an insult, […]

Sad Clown in an Arcade

May 15, 2017

Sitting in an arcade for Tim’s birthday party with a bunch of twelve year olds. This is pretty much the last place I want to be right now, since I just had a little bit of a break up conversation with Cat Guy, and now I need to be fun and cheerful. It can hardly […]

Single Moms with (a few) Answers

February 17, 2016

My single mom friend and blogger, Emma Johnson, is such an inspiration. I met her years ago at the 2012 BlogHer conference. At the time, she was just about to begin her own blog on being a single mother. Flash forward to today and she has tens of thousands of readers and is still a […]

In bed…

July 11, 2012

Sleep has always been a touchy subject for me. I never get enough of it and I am jealous of people who do. I envy well rested people like most women envy dewy, perfect skin or thin thighs. You can have your thighs and your skin, I just want sleep. I used to dread sleeping. […]

Romance vs. Love: What’s the difference?

November 23, 2011

I always pick books up, read a chapter or two, set them down for weeks and then pick them back up later to read a few more. If you recall a few posts back I recommended Gloria Steinem’s Revolution from Within. And as usual, I then didn’t finish it… but a few nights ago I […]

A Single Mom’s Guide to Finding a Manperson

November 28, 2010

Blast from the past posts: Remember when Benjamin used to call every man on the street “Daddy?” I missed the third anniversary of starting my blog. Typically I give myself a pat on the back for making it this far without either a) quitting or b) losing all of my readers. And then I offer […]

Went to the grand opening party of this ridiculously awesome t-shirt company. Homage. They’re based in Columbus but sell to the world on their website, Homage.com. Has absolutely nothing to do with single motherhood, but has everything to do with cool. And the t-shirts are SO cozy. I bought a size small Cleveland is THE […]

One Year

April 28, 2010

One year ago today… When I got dressed that morning I thought about him. What should I wear? Something that doesn’t look like I’m trying and something that will still look cute at 5:45 when I leave work. It didn’t take long for me to decide on a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and a […]

Happily Ever After?

March 29, 2010

“Maybe you shouldn’t have kids,” I sigh into the phone. Typically I’m encouraging my little sister to just have a kid already, but my sister has caught me in a post Benjamin was being a pain in the ass moment and I don’t really feel like talking, or doing much of anything. In fact, I […]

Single and Childless

September 29, 2009

I had an amazing day yesterday… not because I am all in love and stuff (although that made it nice too) but because I got to see two of my best single and childless girlfriends. And now I’m wondering what or who I would be without them in my life. First, there’s Alison… (who is […]
