You Are my Sonshine

This post is dedicated to my sons.  Yes, I also have two daughters, but they will each want their own post, which will have to include photos, so that will be another day.



Ten Rules Mother Wants You To Live By:



1.  Don't be a dick

2.  Only stare at one set of boobs at a time.  Dude come on, they're JUST boobs.

3.  Be nice

4.  Do not speak back to policemen-they're not going to call me to come…

The Art of Negotiation

This blog is dedicated to the Art Gallery Hiring Lady, whom I had the immense pleasure of interviewing with last week.  If I'm not mistaking, and I'm not, you were going to call me back last Friday, with a time and date for my second interview.    Strangely, I have been to Sprint twice in the last 48 hours, and it appears that my phone is working properly. On a side note, I also found out that I am not due for an upgrade until January as I gave my first iphone upgrade to my daughter H, who…

A Vicious Cycle

So I had my yearly gyno check up this week.  I always approach this day with fear and a sense of dread as do most hypochondriacs.  As usual, I enter the waiting area and go right past the shining, youthful faces, bursting with child and the ridiculous notion that their future is bright,  and take my place along the wall with the other women over 50, clutching our purses and reading Fosomax brochures.



Thirty minutes later I leave with a prescription for an…

My wedding ring is a newer, bigger, way more obnoxious version of my original, although it does have some history.   For many years, my grandparents owned a jewelery store in a small town in New York.  When they retired, they went from displaying their jewels in glass cases to wrapping them in wads of toilet paper and hiding them in various places in their apartment.  You could sometimes sit on Grandma Evie's maroon lazy boy and look down to find a TP covered diamond brooch poking you in a…

Weight and See: Dieting is so much more fun with a friend!



A good friend, my best friend, (you know who you are, stop hiding in the shadows and come forward,) and I have been commiserating over some of the changes taking place in our middle aged bodies, mainly a slight weight gain that has us both puzzled. We're not happy.  We don't get it.  We have our…

Tax to the Max

I received an email today from my beloved Madison Pierce, (so what if I didn't get permanent alimony and lost all rights to the country club membership -she looked so polished in the judges' chambers,) reminding me it is tax time and to contact her if I need assistance with my taxes.  Why would I need…

Help a babe out!

Hi babes!



I am seeking out your true online dating stories for my book proposal "The Frontline of Online Dating"  I am taking a humorous approach and am seeking out what may not have been a great date, but looking back, perhaps a really funny one.  I am surprised that I have so many men sending me their stories and very few women!  We need to vent too! 

Needless to say no names will be used and if the book is picked up, I am paying 100.00 to each contributor.  If you are…

Fine Tuning My Resume

There was a point in time when I thought I might like to work in the family business.  Instead, I decided to join a tennis league.  Now, Giselle has her own office right next to my ex, (Well, if I would have known I would have my own office...) and I feel totally at ease knowing she is watching over our finances and my personal well being.  Nothing to worry about there. 



Since that avenue is now closed to me (you…

I AM TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL

During my divorce and days on end with Real Housewives (how I love Jill Z and Countess D, ) and Hoarders, it became clear to me that I really had to do something.  What to do...what to do...I tried volunteer work.  I volunteered at a local television station taking calls for the "Problem Solver." People would call…

A DIVORCEE IMPRESSES HER FRIENDS, or sometimes it's better to go it alone

During my first holiday season as a divorced person, I received two bits of news back to back. First, my ex called to inform me that he and Giselle would be out of town for the holidays. To me out of town is a day at the Gap Outlet, which is about 50 miles from here. To them, it is a two week ski vacation in Switzerland.…

What's in a Name? Everything. or How I Picked My Divorce Attorney

Here is what I did during my divorce:



1.  Wandered through my house in my Snugli, looking like Friar Tuck, and carrying a box of Captain Crunch.

2.  Drank a lot of wine and then sent scathing emails to my ex, which will definitely come…
