SAHM Project - Entry Two

It is day two of the SAHM Project, and today is fine example of why I am so desperate to leave this place! Cut-throat. Pirates. Betrayers. Back stabbers. All of these things perfectly describe my co-workers and the organization I work in. ...more

Black History Month, An Interview with Karyn Parsons

With the recession still looming one might fantasize about moving into the Bank’s California home from the “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” To think that this family took in a relative to give him a better life sounds more appealing today than it sounded as I watched with friends during my teenage years.

I’m short tempered with my husband. I’m pulled in a million different directions, and I’m completely frazzled!”...more

Will I Attend College – Again – With My Daughter?

Our youngest daughter, Maddie, just turned five. She has slept in our room about 220 nights out of the last 270. No jokes here. She started in our bed and after a month or so, we told her it was her sleeping bag on the floor, or back to her room. I’m beginning to wonder if I’ll need to go away to college with her too. She’d better pack her sleeping bag in that case ...more
