When I was a little girl I never daydreamed about the white picket fence and the husband. In fact my daydreams didn’t include a man at all, they definitely didn’t include children. Instead I envisioned myself as a young, successful woman living in a white condo on the top of a skyscraper in New York […]

My imaginary husband

April 6, 2009

It’s been so long since I’ve had a husband, or even a steady boyfriend for that matter, that I now can only imagine what it would be like.

Houston…

January 8, 2009

My blog is her blog. And until she starts her own (which I think she may) Mia will be posting her story here. As most of you know my best friend Mia just found out four weeks ago that her boyfriend of 6 years and the father of her daughter is leaving. Two weeks later […]

Eyelashes

December 27, 2008

The other night on Twitter (my new addiction) I stumbled across an interesting Tweet from a guy named Seth. Then I clicked through to his blog and felt like I’d slipped into the world of my male alter-ego. If I were a dude and childless, I think I’d be him. I immediately asked him for […]

Mr. [Blank] – Your turn…

October 30, 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 […]

Men, men, men. They certainly are falling from the sky lately. Leah, of Mama Dharma.net, 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 […]
