Getting the Job Done: Women and Work Life

October 12, 2011 by


Women are good at compartmentalizing, juggling, balancing and yeah, bringing home the bacon. Well, some women. I have orange sticky notes all over my desk outlining each day otherwise I’d stop somewhere after walking my dog, Orli. Actually, after walking Orli and drinking crazy strong tea with Gail. See, it seems to me that after Gail […]

Sex After Pregnancy: AKA My Postpartum Booty Call

October 10, 2011 by


Guest Post By Andrea Chisholm I will never forget the sloppy red crayon heart drawn around the date of my six-week postpartum visit.

We Love You, Man

August 17, 2011 by

His head ached and his teeth throbbed and then, he began to feel better. But while he was healing, I had the privilege of watching the most touching […]

An Open Letter To Jennifer Aniston On Relationships and Narcissists

July 26, 2011 by


Dear Jen, Hey! I’m so glad you are finally dating a man who seems like he’s your equal. He ain’t above you. He ain’t below you. (Well, only when you want him to be.) He ain’t some guy who you took off your panties for because he made you laugh. This guy Justin Theroux has […]
