Wake Up Calls

I have two beautiful, wonderful, amazing and stressful teen daughters. They’ve spewing negative comments and criticism seemingly non-stop since their dad and I split up last fall. I know divorce isn’t easy on anyone, but their words have been filled with anger and malice and it’s wearing me down. After facing the ridiculousness of post-divorce... Continue Reading →


A Different Kind of November Challenge

I read a blog this morning that really gave me pause to review my life and analyze things differently (thank you to stilllearning2b). I’m a grudge holder and I know that holds me back from many things. I tend to destroy things that were once dear. Despite my efforts to hold back, I find myself,... Continue Reading →

Loving and Letting Go

A friend I’ve known for several decades is laying his son to rest today. Even as I type the words, tears fill my eyes. Again.His son was a handsome 22-year old just beginning his life with an energetic 2-year old daughter.Unfortunately, what began as smoking weed in high school turned into a heroin addiction less...

Okay. But is s/he dead?

My kids have always had an odd concept of time and death. Or maybe it's just an odd concept of time. And curiosity about death. Let me start with saying that I'm one of those moms who likes to talk to her kids constantly. We will talk about anything. Literally anything. We have had some... Continue Reading →


My friends made sure my bad choices weren’t tragedies

The Steubenvile, Ohio, rape case is the most recent case to show how impersonal and hands off our society has become. There is nothing about this case that gives me an okay feeling. A girl made a mistake and drank too much. I've been there. Many times. It's not a good place to be. Her own "friends"... Continue Reading →


I’m raising a Mini-Me and today she’s fun

From the day she was born, I knew this baby girl would be trouble.She has my eyes, but they're a completely different color. They change color depending on the level of mischief she's stirring up in that devious brain of her's. Just like mine.From her earliest days and the moments of her sitting in her highchair...

I wish I was back in college

College was a great time. Being an adult without all of the "real" adult responsibilities. Endless opportunities to learn. Endless opportunities to meet people. Just an amazing all around experience. Why I was so eager to leave? Stupid student loans. And a naïve desire to earn a living. Had I thought about it more, I... Continue Reading →


I live you. Yes, autocorrect, you got that one right!

We’ve all seen those crazy autocorrect screen shots. Some of them are absolutely, cringe-worthy hilarious and some are just so outrageous they can’t be real. A skeptic by nature, I can’t help but “know” that many of them were staged for our entertainment. Nonetheless, in this era of text messaging rather than using that same... Continue Reading →


I’m reliving my teen years and not the good parts

I really was happy when high school and college were over and I thought I was done with dealing with “mean girls.” You know the type – the ones who look you up and down passing silent judgment as they do. You walk away either hearing the comments, the whispers, or just KNOWING that something... Continue Reading →
