We are picking up and leaving this town. Tomorrow marks, in addition to being the beginning of the three week break from Drew’s school, the first day of our beach vacation to Michigan. In so many ways I’m ecstatic about having some time away from real life. In some ways I’m thrilled about abandoning the craziness of our rituals of […]

Utopian Vacation

June 12, 2011

It’s very infrequent in one’s life to be in a place of complete and utter utopia. Of course I have moments of sheer happiness but complete and utter utopia requires your brain and all emotions to be completely involved in the one thing you are doing. And being a complex individual, such as myself, it is very difficult for me […]

Give a little, get a little

April 13, 2011

So I did it! I successfully went on vacation and left my two kiddos. And believe it or not, I actually had a nice time.

Ruined for life!

April 6, 2011

I realized shortly into motherhood that being a parent ruined me. Any sort of sanity, inner serenity I had went out the door. I will never be the same as a result of parenthood.

When I thought of not holding, hugging and kissing my kids, I just ached with pain and guilt from going […]

And as we accumulate those days we dream of luxurious vacations, warm destinations and days filled with relaxation. And as the days at work get long and hard or the climate becomes […]

Do women have to roar? Can’t we just meow?

December 21, 2010

Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate is just further evidence of how far women have come. Women suffrage has given women like myself the opportunity to compete in a male dominated world. And all I have to say to the women who worked hard to break the glass ceiling is thanks a lot, please insert sarcasm. Women were traditionally seen […]

All we got…

November 29, 2010

Over my nice Thanksgiving “break,” I was afforded the opportunity to spend time with three of the most special people in the world – Adam, Drew and Gabriela. I’m really at my happiest place when the four of us are together. It didn’t hurt that the weekend was actually full of fun activities, progress with chores, downtime to relax and […]
