Keeping The Balls Juggling In The Air

I had lunch with a close friend yesterday, and we were doing our usual lunch and chat, and chat, and chat. I love her, cuz she's my no bullshit friend. We cut right to the chase. No small talk. Open hearts on the table, raw emotions. And for yesterday's session, her feelings were that of many of us women, "I…

Getting Yourself Out Of A Funky Rut

I'll never forget how I soaked up, How Stella Got Her Groove Back. I saw the movie with a girlfriend in theaters when it first came out, and for us, it was two hours of bliss. The premise: a gorgeous burned-out forty-something woman reignites her fire by running away to Jamaica and finding a bedmate half her age. Now obviously,…

Taking The Road Less Traveled

So, I was having lunch with an old client/friend of mine this week. It was great. We reconnected over sushi and wine. Yummy food, yummy wine, yummy company. We hadn't seen each other in over three years we calculated, because the last time she saw me, she said I was pregnant. Yeesh for her! But, you know those friends that…

Parenting – Keeping Your Cool and Then Some…

Calling out all mothers!! Although, I have to say, even if you're not a mom yet nor even thinking about it (wow, you're smart... just joking!!), this has gotta sound entertaining. As mothers, we wear many hats depending on the day, the situation, or simply, our moods. Parent, friend, disciplinarian, good cop, bad cop, nice mom, mean mom, and the list goes…

Off The Fence

Hello Ladies! Today I'm taking a little "me" time. I have a nice day planned, and therefore will NOT be writing about on the fence issues. I will be starting my day off with a carpool of course, followed by a second carpool. Followed by a girlfriend's 35th birthday extravaganza. Myself, the birthday girl, and a bunch of friends will be heading…

Off The Fence

So you're all caught up on the week: It's Saturday morning. Like every Saturday morning,  the calm and order that presided here Friday night has vanished into thin air.  Husband is asleep in son's bed in peace and quiet. Boys getting riled up. Me the referee.  In fact, right at this very moment they're physically fighting. My 2-year-old has taken…
