Summer vacation is a stressful time in terms of motherhood.  My son is home, which is wonderful, but there is a certain amount of anxiety that comes with summer.  He is home everyday,... read on

  • Good Whore. Bad Whore.

    I use the word whore a lot.  I have no problem calling a woman a whore, and I get asked about my use of the word often.  Some are offended by the ease in which I label someone a whore.  Important to note that calling someone a whore is not necessarily always meant as an insult.  By... read on

    After being pregnant for about a year and a half, Catherine and William finally had their baby, a son.  It is very exciting. I got caught up in the hoopla and watched the live feed outside the hospital for the big announcement.  I think they are a lovely couple and it is such a... read on

    I recently wrote about the “Vegetarian”. We met for a movie and he decided he was going to turn it into a date.  He specifically told me it was a date, and he sealed it with a kiss.  When I wrote him this week to make plans to see him again, he told me he is actually dating... read on

    The sad truth is that when it comes to sex, I write about it more than I participate in it.  It is a shame because I am at an age where I feel most accepting of my body, and what I bring to a relationship in terms of my sexuality, yet there is nobody to have sex with.  Of course... read on

    July 9, 2013 | 4:01 pm

    I know that abortion is a touchy subject. I understand that people are passionate about the debate, and that faith plays a role in how strong people’s opinions are.  I think abortion is a personal decision, and in the interest of full disclosure, I support a woman’s right to... read on

    After years of comments on my blog, and months of texting, I finally met the man we will call, the “Vegetarian”.   The Vegetarian has been reading my blog on and off for years, comments often, and has not been shy about sharing his take on them.  He shares not only his opinions,... read on
