The Wallflower

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?Among other things, I would most want to be more socially capable.Parties and social gatherings are a part of life. They are intended to be happy occasions where friends and colleagues get together to catch up and unwind.

Cold Feet

Last week I made a major decision.  This week, I am freaking out about it.  Lord, help me!This is the thing about having cold feet.  It's really a reaction to fear.  It doesn't mean you should stop.  It doesn't mean you've made a bad decision.  It simply means that you are scared out of your freakin' mind because you aren't quite sure what lies ahead....more

I Don't Want To Be A Cat Person

She told me how when the old boy died they mourned that kitty, a family circled around the memories and stories and laughing and crying and doing it together because they had loved him together.  I told her how I felt affirmed in my choice to not have a pet in my home, in turn saving myself and my children the inevitable grief of losing it.  This made her sad.  "But isn't it better to have loved something than nothing at all?" she asked.And I felt like an idiot....more
