What Life’s All About

It's Saturday night. I'm in a strange bed. My hubby is next to me. My boys are in another bed, passed out cuddled up into each other, wiped from a day at the Zoo and running around. I'm bloated and my jeans have left bruises on my hips (literally) from the tightness from all of this week's eating, but I'm…

Complaining: “Would You Like Some Cheese With That Whine?”

Attention All Complainers: Listen Up! I knew someone, actually someone I used to work with, who complained about EVERYTHING! Frikkin' everything! About the unfairness of her being given the worst clients, to having the worst behaved child in the world, to having the most unsupportive husband, and the list went on an on. I can complain with the best of…

On Wanting More

Have you ever asked or prayed for something and promised yourself that if only you get through THIS, you'll never ask for ANYTHING else again?

Spring Cleaning

It's March Ladies! Spring is in the air. Out with the old, in with the new! I was hoping to check in yesterday, but unfortunately I caught my son's stomach flu and spent the night and day in the toilet. Fun stuff! It was great to take a total time out from my life, and I thoroughly enjoyed it (in…

The Bucket List

I must be subconsciously thinking about my mortality this week, because Wednesday's Blog was about aging, and now I've created my Bucket List. I watched the movie "The Bucket List" last night, and cried for two straight hours. What a fabulous movie. But my bucket list, (everything I want to do before I "kick the bucket") is really a Hodge…

Can Women Have It All?

Of course women CAN'T have it all! You tell me one person who has absolutely everything! Perfectionism is an illusion of the mind. Today's Blog post is about the women who try and have it all, and then go into therapy when they realize that it's virtually impossible. Over the past few decades, women have made incredible strides. We make…

Being Thankful

When I awoke this morning, I wasn't feeling connected to a particular topic for today. My thoughts were scattered. And then a Blackberry text message from a friend I haven't spoken to in a while set off a light. I wished my husband's friend a quick happy new year this morning and asked him how he was doing. His reply,…
