Please Don’t Thank Me for Being A Working Mom.

I read this wonderfully sweet post today, thanking us working momsĀ for basically holding down the fort, if you will, in the work force.

I write on divorce, motherhood, relationships, personal life events, kindness, and acceptance. Nothing new here. Nothing extremely unique.

The Distraction Called ‘Election Year’

Is it over? Can I come out yet? No. Apparently not. My social media feeds are telling me it’s not safe yet. Hasn’t it all been awful? Trump. Clinton. Racism. Emails. Misogyny. Emails. Bigotry. Emails. Pussy grabbing. Emails. Trump University fraud. Emails. 4000+ law suits. Emails. Homophobia. Emails. I mean, no matter what side of… Continue reading The Distraction Called ‘Election Year’
