Breakfast in bed.

October 28, 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 sweet […]

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. If romance happened, it would happen…  We saw castles. We saw canons. We took a ferry into […]

Oh me, oh my. The sparks are flying.

June 18, 2008

Remember what crush butterflies feel like? Sparking all over the place, in the flesh or online – in your head, in your heart or in your throat. They’re palpable and you feel as if you could reach down into your soul and touch them. But what happens when those sparks are one sided? Or when […]

My prince sent me a castle.

June 11, 2008

Thomas has been sending me little clues on the places we’ll be visiting during my trip to Denmark… like this one: A castle. Couldn’t resist passing it on. I’m so excited!

Man wanted.

April 17, 2008

If I were to write a personals ad on Craigslist here’s what it would say.

Dear Man.

I like you. I really do. I’m just trying to figure out why I need you. So if you want me (and I’m quite a catch) you’ll have to prove your worth.

In order for me to deem you valuable you must be able to:

1. Cook

2. Clean

3. Pamper

4. Love

5. Respect

6. Trust

7. Laugh

8. Intrigue

9. Provide

and…last but not least…

10. Have a nice ass.

Sincerely,

Ms. Single Mama.

And no, I have never posted a personals ad on Craigslist.com. But I do browse and they’re out there. Look at your own risk! Most of them actually have naked pictures of guys showing off their you know whats. Ummm… yeah. That’s hot.

We’ve got a live one…

April 16, 2008

Here we go again.

Another commenter bashing us because we’re happy single parents.

Today’s live wire comment thread is coming from a particularly bitter stay-at-home mom who calls our families “broken” and also says she would never spend a millisecond away from her children to find someone to get her “jollies off on.” (I didn’t know people still used that term – “jollies.” Ha. Anyway….)

Does romance really exist?

February 8, 2008

As Valentine’s Day approaches it’s got me thinking about romance and the idea of romance. When it comes to romance – the ball is usually in the man’s court, because society tells us it should be. But personally, I can count on my hands the number of men who have actually done anything “romantic” for me. Somewhere along the line I just stopped expecting flowers, chocolates or sweet nothings – leaving those fantasies of romantic gestures behind with my youthful optimism. But when you’re a woman it’s not easy to lower your expectations. And should we? Or should we just take a look at our definition of romance?

Just when I thought I was safe…

November 5, 2007

Six weeks ago I had reached a point of complete contentment with being single. Over the past year and a half I have been looking, searching for someone. There was a pattern. I liked a guy. We hit it off. I scared him off. My friends told me, “You’re calling him too much.” “What? I have […]
