Road Rage

At the red light, at the exit of my office’s parking lot, I slowly edged out a little bit, trying to see if I could make a right turn onto the main road.   The road was packed with bumper to bumper traffic.  I made eye contact with the driver who was stuck where my traffic light was.  He was unable to clear it due to the congestion.  I didn’t expect the driver to be gracious and let me pass.   ...more

“Ok, Hilary, I will email you the link for you to post your discounted ad,” my Monster representative told me on the phone.  “If you have any questions, just call me back, and I will walk you through anything you need.” As I said thanks and goodbye, I received her email.  I clicked the link, and was able to quickly paste in my help wanted advertisement.  I swiftly navigated through the subsequent screens, and put in my discount code.  Practically done, I selected my payment method and began inputting my credit card information. ...more

Funny thing.The past month has been particularly dreadful, for a host of reasons, topped only by a family-wide illness and my laptop squealing, then failing, in my lap.There is a significant upside, though. A very unexpected one. My family's bonding.I know what you're thinking. How could we have gotten this far and not bonded yet? I probably have a few good reasons, or rationalizations, or what-have-yous, but that's not why I'm here....more

My Baby Stole My Awesome Body And Won't Give It Back!

I’m smart. So smart that I convinced my husband that having our children 15 months apart was a good thing. So I have a 16-month-old and a 4-week-old, and I love them both. But my body is a wreck, and my self-esteem has suffered to the point that I’m afraid to initiate sex with my husband for fear of rejection! I am wondering if you have any ideas for toning and strengthening muscles (both inside and out, if you catch my drift) because I can’t tell if I’m doing those stupid kegels right.  Meanwhile, I fear that if these bat wings (aka arms) get any worse, I’ll be swooping into my kids’ rooms in the middle of the night for the (many, many) feedings. ...more
