Holy Shit, you guys. I met Boo Radley this morning!
So for the past few days I have been sharing about my neighborhood Boo Radley house – a source of mystery and intrigue on many a dog walk in the past year or so. Well, hand to God: this morning when I was stalking the Boo Radley House walking the dog, who should walk into the... Read more »

If I were to die tomorrow, here is what I know right now

Sometimes words invade my head like a catchy tune – and the only way to exorcise them is to sing them out loud. And for two days now, a single, tuneless phrase has played itself over and over in my mind: “If I were to die, tomorrow, here is what I know right now…” I know,... Read more »

A garden railroad, an RV park, and a magnificent love story
This past weekend, I spent time in an RV park in Rockford, IL. As I was walking my dog after dark one night, I felt a shimmering sensation radiating from the corner of the park. One of the lots was twinkling and … humming?  When I realized what it was, I ran to get my... Read more »

I'm a grown-up! (so why do I still care so much about what people think of me?)
The other day, my six year old son said to me: G: Mom, you’re not like other moms, are you? Me: No, kiddo. I’m not. I would say I am a little odd… XANADU ! from Old Single Mom on Vimeo. And by God, I’m determined to teach him that it’s okay to be a... Read more »

I'll admit it: sometimes being single sucks

I'll admit it: sometimes being single sucks
Okay, yeah. I’ll admit it. Sometimes being single sucks. Over the weekend, I fell down. Now, falling, in and of itself, isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In my experience, you can accomplish a lot between the misstep and the ground: epiphanies. Brainstorms.

Pajama Jeans? I have been wearing those since the day I discovered booze
(Disclaimer: the Pajama Jean company in no way knows, endorses or gives a flip that I wrote this.) Pajama Jeans are real things. Their motto?  Pajamas you live in. Jeans you sleep in.

Being single ain't for wusses...
When it comes to being single, I live on some weird border of Prideland. I mean for Heaven’s sake, it’s my middle name! I have never had a “wedding fantasy.” I am baffled at why people still spend so much money on wedding rings. It seems to me like it should be more an “a... Read more »
