Barter Bliss

For all of my new readers, people that are joining me here and have been following my new series on Working Mother Magazine – welcome.  I wish that this could be a longer, more profoundly detailed blog, but considering that I can’t see straight, every bone in my body is aching and I’m dreaming of my…

How Far Down the Rabbit Hole?

In my last posting, A Mother Cries…, I shared that I have begun a medication protocol for both of my children.  I am still not 100% at peace with this decision.  But once you begin down the rabbit hole, there is no choice but to keep tunneling forward.  At times the journey seems overwhelmingly dark…

Winter Wonder-what?

Remember the joy you felt as a kid waiting expectantly at the crack of dawn for updates to the Winter Advisory?  303, 303, 303, 303!  I chanted my school number as a mantra – hoping and praying as fervently as I could to the snow gods to close my school. Ah, those were the days…

Art imitating life? You decide.

Peeling back the cover of his Zen soy pudding cup, my 7 yr. old son stopped, wide eyed and strangely silent. Curious, my 9 yr. old daughter peered in and gasped: “hey, that looks like The Scream”. Life imitating art?  You decide. Of course, my daughter was convinced her next spoonful of the vanilla version strangely…

Crud, Mud & Laundry

Blog post 2.  Here’s hoping it under promises and over delivers.  The purpose of this blog isn’t to needlessly expose you to the rantings and ravings of an overworked, underpaid, super-stressed single mompreneur.  Rather, I wish to reach, encourage and activate any of you who have had similar experiences balancing work, family, relationships and everything…

Diva-Mama Debut!

After much fanfare, a few false starts and some sleepless nights, my website and blog are now “live.”  Oh, the pressure!  If only my mind could keep up with the millions of things I want to write about; the kids, the job, the blog, the boyfriend, the trip to Sedona, the blog, the mean dad,…
