Workshop here and I blogged over at GenX stories here . But,
alas, Clemson Road, I did not post anything new in March. It
was my birthday month which I've written
about before . My ...

What parents of onlies know
Charlie and
I are both middle kids. Classic cases of left-out, overlooked, constantly
compromising, and all that other middle kid BS.   Maybe it was all we knew, but we expected to
have multiple kids in our household. For any
number of reasons, though, we s...

Now Hiring
The correct
response when someone says, “I need to lose 30 pounds,” is: “What? You
don’t have 30 pounds to lose!” (my BFFs Tami and Jodie). Not, “How
are you gonna do that?” or, “By
when?” or, “Oh,
that’s totally doable,”  (the trainer). That’s
right, I hir...

No Longer Virgin
Two weeks ago
I ran a 13.1 mile race delightfully called a Diva Half Marathon. It was not my
first time. My first half was in Greenville, SC in 2011. After having
Hollie in 2008, I went back to running in an attempt to lose the baby weight.
When the first 3...

Charlie turned 40 this Summer
By the time
I met him, Charlie had the confidence that comes from knowing you’re somebody
worth knowing. He says I was a diamond in the rough but maybe I just hadn’t
acquired that confidence yet.  He was 22 to
my 19 and he was not my usual post-grunge artis...

What the hell happened to May?
So I knew it had been a while since I’d posted here. I’ve
done some posts on GenX Stories . I participated in Submit-O-Rama May, so I had
to update the progress there. I have also been on the Northeast Area Update on the Chamber
blog, though I have a great ...

I Don't Want to Break Up with Brian Williams
I’m broken
hearted over this whole Brian Williams thing. By all
accounts, Williams is a gifted storyteller. He’s known for spinning yarns,
entertaining small groups of colleagues and coworkers with quips and tales.
He’s engaging and magnetic and his stories...

Teachable Moments on the Side of a Mountain
There’s a great recurring joke on Modern Family wherein Cam
and Mitchell are attempting to respond to Lily’s behavior and they declare the
instance a “teachable moment.” It reminds the rest of us that we can react irrationally to
our children or we can help...

Waiting
Lately I’ve noticed our lunch-time servers in various
corporate restaurants are older. They look to be about 50 or higher.
Yesterday’s Red Robin waitress was certainly a grandmother. I’m sure there are employment trends tracked on sites like
Salary.com and ...

Raising a Fighter
Hollie’s a
picky eater. She’s got the foods she likes and she sticks with them. She’s an
only child. She likes her alone time. She’s also an independent child. She
doesn’t like being bossed around by me and Charlie. More than
once on vacation we found ourse...

Mom to one, just one, my one
I’m a pretty
good mom but I’m not good with other people’s kids. I don’t know
those children as well as I know mine, haven’t grown used to their voices,
their questions, or their habits. Perhaps I might. Were I around them a lot, I
might. Our friend
Torie, ...

What the Will to Lead Looks Like
On Wednesday, I met Governor Haley.   She looked me straight in the eye, shook my
hand firmly, greeted each of the panelists to whom I had been speaking, and
took a question I had prepared for her. “We were just about to share the best advice we’ve ever rec...
