Yesterday I turned 37. It was my 'scary' number. Sure, 30 was hard and 40, ooph, I know it will be too... but 37? I had always dreaded it. It's my official welcome to Late Thirties. Even though I have a truly solid life, I still feel somewhere inside that... Continue reading

In the last 4 weeks I have worked 380 hours. I found out on Monday that the cause of the work, the hope and the reason, didn't happen. A different direction, everything I had pinned a lot of future plans on, had simply disappeared. It was crushing. I have been... Continue reading

When faced with a crisis, or issues, or hell even stress, my first resort is comedy. It's generally unintentional and I typically just say the first thing that comes to mind. It's inappropriate, 90% of the time, and in retrospect funny. Today was one of those times. I was at... Continue reading

My grandma died on Friday. It was both completely expected and a total surprise. Expected as she had been in bad health for awhile, and was, let's face it, 90. A total surprise as I had just heard from her a few days before via iMessage and she had been... Continue reading

I have gotten the following question from a few people. It always comes at weird times and in various prose. But the core is always the same. Sometimes I answer it with pure positivity. Sometimes I don't answer it at all. But this time it came in via Facebook Messenger,... Continue reading

There's that moment when you realize it's your little one's bedtime. It's a sigh of relief because soon you'll have time to be you again. The you that you used to be. You can sit on the couch or call a friend or just breathe, really and truly. No one... Continue reading

A lot of my friends are currently trying for a baby, or at the very least, entertaining the thought. They often text me about how adorable my daughter is and how fun parenting looks. Yes, fun. If parenting is fun then so is falling down the stairs, while using your... Continue reading

Since January 2015 the scope of my day to day life has been remarkably narrow. My daughter, my work, my pets, followed very, very distantly by me. That's it. My friend pool shrunk by about 90% as I moved and they underwent life changes in a different direction. It meant... Continue reading

The world has made me deeply sad lately. It's mass chaos and I have considered building a bunker to keep me and those I love safe. But, I know I can't do that (unfortunately) and so we have to just keep pushing on and figuring out a way to live... Continue reading

My 35th year ended just as the year had gone: literally bumpy. You see, I was covered head to toe in hives again, in and out of the hospital, having all of my blood drawn. There were and still are, undiagnosable. Technically they are called 'idiopathic' and technically I call... Continue reading

My phone rang today with a 'no caller id' shown. I generally don't answer those but as I was feeling a touch salty I figured I could spare 5 minutes to destroy a spam telemarketer. Instead, the conversation went like this: Me: Hello? (salt dripping from voice) Her: This is... Continue reading

Awhile back I declared that I was on a forever man ban. I was, and I wanted that to be it. I was ready to be done with dating until one day, at the age of 70 I found my new boyfriend Sven upon the day of his college graduation.... Continue reading

It's been a really weird couple of months. This is, of course, saying a great deal given the fact that the last two years have been exceptionally bizarre, but it's true. After my last post I was feeling really great. There was an outpouring of love and support from friends... Continue reading

Conrad, I vote for both. It makes for a long business card but I like it.

Dude. I cannot wait for these babies to sleep! (Also wine and tutus)

Megan -- thank you and thank you for reading along with me. That statement is worth a lot, and I truly appreciate it.

This last weekend my daughter turned one. This week is the one year mark of be being single and full-time single parent. The space between those dates is causing a lot of emotional turmoil. Joy that she's one, sadness that she's technically no longer a baby, anger dredged up from... Continue reading

It is no secret that Christmas is my favorite time of year. So much so that my tree has been up since mid-November and the matching Christmas pajamas I ordered for me and my daughter were delivered months ago. For the first time though, this season is a bit fraught... Continue reading

I said it previously but I am part of 4 different Facebook mom groups. As such, I see a constant stream of mom related questions flow across my timeline, and well, they are all exactly the same. Here's my new handy guide on postpartum: 1) OMG my hair is falling... Continue reading

Welp, I had my brain scan. Technically one of two but that is neither here nor there. The conversation leading up to it went like this: Them: We need to put you under for it. Me: Can't. I'm still breastfeeding. Them: Ok, well, just come severely sleep deprived as we... Continue reading

Last night I started to get more hives. They weren't bad so I showered and went to sleep, thinking that when sleeping I couldn't itch them and therefore they would get better. This is what the internet said to do and I trust Dr. Google implicitly. Also: logic. At 2am... Continue reading

Yesterday sucked. A lot. I don't want this space to become one wherein I only write about crappy things that happen, but the fact is I need to get this out of my brain so I can sort through it all. We woke up at 4:45 as that's what time... Continue reading

The other day I texted my old therapist. The text said 'Hi. Remember me? I have a baby now and need therapy'. Verbatim. Within seconds I had a response that said 'OMG!' and then 'I have missed you'. My therapist gets my sense of humor, which, for me is one... Continue reading

This last week has been super heavy and pretty damn brutal. There's been a lot of tears and pain and general crap. It's also been great in that an article I wrote here was republished and went viral. With so many ups and downs, I've learned a few things this... Continue reading
