All things must end, even mediocre missives published over a dying medium at increasingly sporadic intervals. In other words, I'm retiring this blog. It's not for any one reason, but I'm doing an overhaul of my digital presence in light of my impending career change and it just makes sense.... Continue reading

Hello darlings, and thank you for the outpouring of support and rah-rah regarding my last entry and our new professional adventure. It's straight-up overwhelming to be on the receiving end of such love and confidence in us and it's the kind of overwhelm I cherish. There's no big news to... Continue reading

Let's start the month off with some hot-off-the press, officially official news: as of November, Mike and I will taking on the job of Co-Executive Directors of The Boston House. It is a huge move for us, both professionally and personally, and even though it seems scary in ways we... Continue reading

While we were busy making other plans, this guy turned 13. Pretty rude, right? Imagine me, the mother of a teenager. Preposterous! Yet, true. I like having a teenage kid, now that I've had a few weeks to get used to the idea, but as with all things HR, so... Continue reading

Families, you got one? You like 'em? Me, yes and for sure. I'm pretty vocal about my love of a fam jam so it's not a big surprise to hear that. I always love hearing about families' quirky bits, and I wonder if mine is unique in some ways or... Continue reading

I am hopelessly addicted to lists, as you probably know. I find them them soothing, they help organize my brain, and it's satisfying to cross things off when when they're of the to-do variety. In this modern age, I keep a lot of lists in my notes app. Books I've... Continue reading

You wouldn't know to look at me these days, but if you've known or followed me for any amount of time you're aware that I am and have always been a clothes lady. I don't know or care about fashion per se, not from a "rules" standpoint. I understand things... Continue reading

I don't think that anyone is really cut out to parent a sick kid, but some people are better at it than others. Certainly they're better at it than me. Not that I don't attend to my kid when he's under the weather, actually I think I'm great at doing... Continue reading

Well I had this pointed ambition to blog more (Blogmore, sounds like a terrible fictional kingdom) and that went off the rails for a bunch of reasons, one being the loss of my dear Uncle Bob. I know that last time I wrote I was all rah-rah about authentically experiencing... Continue reading

Whoa, February, eh? Time flies when you're deep down in a fun new obsession with the fragility of life. It's really getting to me lately, both specific and general examples of how fleeting it all is. In the past few months I've read too many obituaries of people I sort-of... Continue reading

Well here I am writing the first blog entry of 2023 and I'm feeling fragile, vulnerable and freaked out about everything. In other words, New Year/Classic me, pals! I didn't come here just to share that earthshaking non-news or even try to impart any bon mots. The purpose of blogging... Continue reading

I love Samantha Irby. She's not for everyone, but her brand of humor is very much my brand of humor and I envy her writing career as well as her talent as someone who can write candidly about bodily functions with so much heart and hilarity. Yadda yadda yadda, read... Continue reading

It's Thanksgiving week, my absolute favorite week of the year, and though it's not an original concept, it is indeed a good time to pop in and share my gratitude. I'm feeling especially lucky right now. Grounded, loved, dare I say fulfilled? My plans for the last week were totally... Continue reading

So obviously I haven't been writing much these days, though if I barely noticed I don't think anyone else has. I'm popping on to fulfill the once-a-month blog quota I've settled into. Words for the sake of words, sometimes I just need to do this in the guise of self-discipline... Continue reading

Happy 5783 (as of last week) to the chosen and everyone who celebrates with the chosen! You know I'm not a religion guy, but I believe in the power of community, culture and the mindful observance of the holidays that are important to my family. The past year has been... Continue reading

This summer has been a tumbling twirling swirl of travel and activity (and sweat, dear god it was so hot), jam-packed with people and places and sights and sounds and flavors and I feel so grateful to have experienced it, but I don't know where to start writing about it.... Continue reading

How to live a life not overwhelmed with despair when everything is literally on fire: I have no idea. It's cute that you bought my authoritative tone for a second though. Maybe that's really all it comes down to, though. Faking it until you make it, or rather, what I... Continue reading

Here's a note I wrote to myself: blog - summer and creativity break; the funeral et al - the turtle 4th of july nah. Translation: I want to write a blog post, but it's summer, my kid's camp hasn't started and I haven't arsed myself to cough up a damn... Continue reading

I haven't been around in awhile, you know how it is. Mother's Day was cute. I had a great concert experience, seeing Gang of Youths, my favorite band of the last decade. I knew it was during a surge and I wore my KN95! Still... got COVID. I did OK... Continue reading

I had my first colonoscopy last week (welcome to my late 40s!). All was fine, I don't have to do that again for 10 years, huzzah etc. When I was doing the work-up with the lovely anesthesiologist, he asked if I had any surgeries in my history. I said yes,... Continue reading

Milestone alert: I got my first rejection from a literary agent. It was kindly worded, but still a hard pass. I'm not getting down about it though, it's actually kind of exciting because it symbolizes that my journey to publication has officially begun. This is part of it. Ask me... Continue reading

I am still cruising on a wave of inspiration, which is arguably preferable to a wave of mutilation. In order to keep it going and not psych myself out of putting in the work every day, I've been experimenting with the "Pomodoro Method," which basically means I set a timer... Continue reading

I am in the midst of a creatively explosive period in my life and I can't really say why. I reckon it's not in spite of, but in reaction to everything being shit. When there's not much you can do besides observe and wait and let your fear eat you... Continue reading

There's a suffocatingly large list of important and devastating things going on right now, yeah? Sounds to me like a perfect opportunity to ruminate on my pointless tiny existence! I was recently obsessing over the Winter Olympics, particularly figure skating, like I do every four years, and (as I also... Continue reading

Oh, hi Valentine's Day. As you know, I'm meh on the non-candy aspects of this holiday. The first Valentine's Day that Mike and I were together, I was in another country and he managed to get flowers delivered to me which is pretty damn impressive in those pre-internet days. After...
