I left my phone charger in California. And after one day with no interruptions and no friends to run my emotions by … I realized how nice it is to be disconnected. So I didn’t buy a new one. Now it’s been five days of phone free bliss and a lot of time to reflect. […]

On fake wedding rings.

Need to save your marriage? Talk to Mort.

May 18, 2008

This post was inspired by Google searches to my blog for “working harder than my husband.” I used to be there. When your man isn’t acting like a man, and you’re taking care of the kids, cleaning the house, cooking and bringing home the bacon – you start to wonder why in the hell you […]

Go pick a man up. I dare you!

April 22, 2008

It’s Spring. I’m feeling frisky … and I know you are too! So… I dare you to ask a guy out. If you’re like me and the idea of going out on a date makes your stomach squirm, then you get a reprieve. It’s only been one week since my break up, so I get […]

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.
