They Don’t Know Better

I was walking right behind them in the school. I wasn’t eavesdropping, but they were really loud. “She’s so annoying. Why does she even sit at our table?” “I don’t know. Maybe because she thinks I am her best friend.” “She’s so NOT, thought. She’s so annoying.” They all laughed and the six of them [...]

Unsteady on the Mat

There’s something in yoga called chitta vritti. Simply put, it’s mind chatter. Some call it monkey mind. As a monkey jumps from tree to tree, with chitta vritti, your thoughts move from place to place. It makes it hard to balance and stay centered in your practice. Tonight, my mind was in full-on monkey mode. [...]

A December to Remember

Another year over. One that saw my baby go off to kindergarten and those last five pounds I’ve always tried to get rid of have finally left my belly due to food poisoning. (In retrospect, I’d rather have the five pounds. Hell, I’d take ten if I could eat dairy again.) It was a year [...]

This summer Big Girl had issues with two kids who live close to our house. One of the girls just couldn’t tolerate her. Whatever. Her loss. I’m okay with that now. The other one has made it her mission to try and get under my poor kid’s skin. On Friday, Big Girl came home with [...]

I woke up with tears on my face early this morning. I had been dreaming about being browbeaten by the director of a local nursery school — someone who has known me since Big Girl was three. I can’t remember everything about the dream, but I remember the gist of it. She was telling me [...]

I cried after Big Girl got out of the car today. The late bell rang as she walked through the doors. Little Girl asked if I was crying because her sister was going to get a late pass. I told her yes. What else could I say? I couldn’t tell her the truth that I [...]

Sandy has created a lot of headaches. There are so many people living in trailers or RVs down by me. There are so many people living with family members. These people and even people like me who are less effected are also dealing with depression, fear, anger, and pain among other things. I wonder if [...]

It’s been a while since I posted. There’s a good reason for my absence: Hurricane Sandy swept through my town and the fallout has sucked, to say the least. We live on the South Shore of Long Island in a little beach club community. We live .22 of a mile away from a canal and [...]
