My Ford Fiesta

Dread Pirate Benjamin

November 2, 2009

My decision I am going to keep blogging and I want all of you to know – this is my corner of the world where I do get to talk about my feelings, uninterrupted. This is not a true reflection of my day to day life. Believe me. And if a family member is going […]

The Trip Story: Part 3

August 23, 2009

John Bear jumped out of bed at 7:00 am to feed Fiesta Dave’s meter. We’d parked in a haze of exhaustion.  After spending the entire day in New York City we hit a monstrous traffic jam on the way into Philadelphia. Between reading our iPhone maps and asking cab drivers which turn to take next […]

New roommates

July 13, 2009

Our new roommates, now I think there are six or so, have crushed Thomas the Tank and even Elmo. Even Woody and Buzz Lightyear haven’t moved. And I’ve become all too aware of the fact that apparently I’m not the only one who has been lacking a man’s attention and affection. We had just woken […]

Unexpected reality

May 27, 2009

A few weeks ago, or was it months? my ex offered, or did I ask? to take Benjamin two nights a week instead of one. For several weeks he upheld his new commitment, enjoying every extra moment with his son until on week four he told me he was tired. I understood. It’s hard. This […]

His eyes, the Governor & Dave.

May 7, 2009

I could swim in his eyes. The only bad thing about being in the dark with the bear is not being able to see them – ice blue, almost transparent and surrounded by his fuzzy face with a smile he saves only for me. The two together – the smile with those eyes melt me […]

My Tattoo

April 30, 2009

I know I have been scant.  I hate that.  I have so many things to write about. But time is not my friend, especially when I have a video to edit. Here’s the result. I hope you love it as much as I do. Special thanks to Biggs at High Street Tattoo for coming in […]

Rogue Mission

April 28, 2009

If you missed it… Last month I entered a video in hopes of being selected as one of 100 Ford Fiesta Movement agents. A few weeks later I got a surprising phone call from Ford that I had, indeed won. The call came from this guy… Andrew, my Mission Control point of contact. Isn’t he […]

The wow factor.

April 26, 2009

My Ford Fiesta. I am absolutely divinely head over heels in love with my new ride.  I just got home last night but Benjamin and I were out and about all day cruising.  Now I’m wiped out.  I have a lot of video to edit, some posts to write and a secret self-induced single mama […]

Out

April 20, 2009

I’ve been hiding my location, or attempting to, since starting this blog. I deliberately chose not to reveal my city to avoid that one in a million chance that a psycho would decide to stalk and/or kill me. You never know. And being a single mom, living alone with my son, I think it’s logical […]

Clearing the Mr. Man Air & Morgan Siler

April 19, 2009

Here we all are… happy as can be. One week from today Morgan and I will be on separate flights to Chicago where we’ll meet to pick up that new car I won. After my top secret agent and drivers training (I have to re-learn a stick), Morgan and I will be driving the car […]
