    I had a date last night with a man I met on Match.com. He is 52, 5’10”, dark hair, blue eyes, works in finance, divorced, two adult children, and a great sense of humor. We spoke on the phone twice and our conversations were short but fun.  We decided to meet for a drink. He... read on

    My son is with his dad for 10 days over his winter break and will not be back with me until New Year’s Eve. The first day he was gone I didn't get dressed or out of bed. I was overcome with sadness that I would not see him for so long. That got me to thinking about his leaving for... read on

    I like to think I am a good negotiator, especially when it comes to my son. I have mastered the “You Do This, I’ll Let You Do That”, technique. It really is an art, requires discipline, focus, and a straight face. I have long been admired by family and friends for my negotiations... read on

    I watched the Victoria’s Secret fashion show last night and I sat in awe of the true beauty. Not only the women, but the outfits, the wings, the artistry. They do interviews with the models and you want so much to not like them, but the truth is they are lovely girls. I found them... read on
