I Shop at Goodwill

Actually it’s even worse than that.  My mother shops at Goodwill for me.  And only on 50% off days.  And only when she can get her senior discount.  I really hate clothes shopping.  I think it’s a hold over from my days at Catholic school.  I mean who really needs more than two plaid jumpers, five […] Read more…

Ode to My Dog

Four years ago it dawned on me that there were only two things in my life that brought me Pure joy without any accompanying angst: my assistant Anne Cowley and my dog Rupert. Anne has since moved onto bigger and better projects besides my sorry self.  But Rupert remains, as always, loving, loyal, and by […] Read more…

Embracing Your Inner Slut

Slut:  noun 1. a dirty, slovenly woman. 2. an immoral or dissolute woman; prostitute.

Calling Donna Reed!

I apologize to everyone in advance because I am not a techie.  But this clip from YouTube (which for the longest time I thought was  spelled “utube”) is so awesome I had to face my fear and give embedded URLing a try:   The World According to Bernadette In this clip from “The Big Bang Theory” (which if you […] Read more…

Family, Inc.

As working moms we juggle a HUGE amount on a daily basis:  clients, meetings, making lunches, dropping off at school, picking up from basketball, doing the laundry, mopping the floors.  The list seems literally endless.  And somehow we all manage through.  But that is just it!  We shouldn’t just be “managing” through.  I’m incredibly guilty of […] Read more…
