Single Mom Relaxation 101

September 28, 2008

I’m trying to do it all and it’s catching up with me. Something has to give. Can’t be Benjamin. Can’t be my job. Can’t be my home. Actually, I can’t drop anything. So it seems I need to add something to make everything else easier. Like yoga class for example, or maybe Pilates. But as […]

Denmark, Part 2

August 27, 2008

I wasn’t expecting an extremely romantic vacation that would rock my world. I was expecting a vacation filled with many long days of shopping and sight seeing followed by long nights of dancing, drinking and sorted drunken debauchery.

Pulling teeth, my nerves, and the Dane.

July 24, 2008

Benjamin will probably lose his second front tooth tomorrow. I’ll have to watch them strap him down, gas him and then pull. All of this after they stick a needle into his gums. And I’ll have to do it alone…again. The first time they replaced his cracked tooth with a cap, the second time they […]

Sick Thoughts.

June 5, 2008

I’m sick. Can’t write much because my brain is going to explode…but I do have some sick thoughts to share, not really sick thoughts, but thoughts I’m having as I sit here – sick. 1. Barack Obama could be the first President of the United States who was raised by a single mother. There are […]

Copenhagen or Bust!

May 25, 2008

I bought a ticket to Denmark. I know what you’re thinking. She’s lost her mind! She’s wrapped up in a torrid love affair with the Dane! My little brother called me when he found out, “Alaina? You’re flying to Denmark? So you’re really serious with this guy, huh?” There was an obvious hint of concern […]
