My Ford Fiesta

Dread Pirate Benjamin

November 2, 2009

In a flurry to find comfortable shoes before I started my new job I found these: And I have been wearing them ever since. They’re by Teva, so they’re beyond comfortable and oh so cute. I found them in a store in Charlottesville but you can also find them on Zappos.com for the lovely price […]

August 23, 2009

When I started this blog I had one single mom friend, now I feel I have thousands and I don’t feel alone anymore. I know many of you feel the same way having found my blog. Often many of you send me photos of yourselves and your little ones and my heart melts each time, […]

New roommates

July 13, 2009

Take a look at this one. Even down to his fuzzy little tail, he’s got muppet written all over him. And just when I thought I’d never see a dog that looked more like a muppet this one showed up.

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 […]

He […]

Rogue Mission

April 28, 2009

There are few material things that ever really wow me.  Here are two. Benjamin’s new “water boots”. For the first time in three years Benjamin’s father bought him a pair of shoes. He had no way of knowing this but I’ve been trying to find a cool pair of puddle stomping boots for months. But […]

The wow factor.

April 26, 2009

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 […]

Clearing the Mr. Man Air & Morgan Siler

April 19, 2009
