Dream Date with Adonis

August 19, 2017

A date so good that I’m not even sure it really happened.  It’s the opposite of  dating horror stories. While I want to recount dates like this to each of my friends and family, they don’t want to hear it. But I want to tell about it, if you’re interested. James Dean + a satyr […]

Dishevelment

May 20, 2010

The next time I say I am going to start my own business and a new workshop series – just stop me, shake me and then throw some cold water in my face. After two weeks of prep while managing client work and all of that new business stuff, the final Sway Workshop is under […]

Self-portrait

February 2, 2010

I took this picture of myself in my office the other day. It felt weird. To take my own picture, but I had to for our Sway website (currently in the works). So I set the camera on top of three books and an end table then hit the auto-timer. Somewhere in the span of […]

Working Girl

January 6, 2010

I am not sure working like this is entirely healthy for anyone, let alone a single mom. My back and shoulders are a tight, tangled mess of nerves and poor posture induced kinks.

I need to buy one of those jacuzzi tubs or a personal massage therapist. I am also tempted to throw away everything in my house away so there is nothing left to clean. The cleaning, the working, the mothering. Rinse. Repeat. Rinse. Repeat.

How do you work it?

November 7, 2009

Today during my pedicure (oh, so awesome) I pointed to a headline on one of those magazines with a quote from Kate Gosselin, “I never knew how strong I could be,” something to that effect. I read the line to Holly and then she said, “Yeah, but there are a lot of emotions along the […]

The other side

September 3, 2009

I spotted my first fallen leaves in the grass of the baseball diamond near my post office last Thursday. The bag over my shoulder was bursting with little brown packages. Each containing a silver or bronze new leaf necklace destined for one of you. I make this walk to the post office, with Murphy in […]

The Trip Story, Part 4

August 26, 2009

On the Friday after the Wednesday night when we finally got home, we took off again. This time Benjamin and Murphy were stuffed into the back seat and we were driving John’s car instead of Fiesta Dave. Even after hours of driving on our vacation, John never could get comfortable driving the stick. The rehearsal […]

Seeing things

July 27, 2009

As I’m putting the final touches on Ms. Single Mama Uncensored I’m finding that in nearly every thought and in every piece there is even more I want to write. But at some point I have to stop, right? I guess I don’t want to stop though… so expect a Part II or an expanded […]

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 […]
