One very difficult part of going back to work has been the separation from my stay-at-home-mom (SAHM) friends. Read More

The cure for resentment: A simple prayer

January 27, 2012 | | 2 Comments

Do you know what resentment feels like? It’s a consuming feeling of anxiety, sadness, tension and other unpleasant things.

What is resentment?

Simply, resentment is letting someone live rent free in your head. They don’t even know they are there most of the time. It’s just you and them hanging out and going over every recent interaction between the two of you.

While several years ago I could’ve claimed several resentments, there’s really only one that I’m working on correcting right now. Read More

Returning to work has been very exciting for me. I’m proud of what I do, which is a great feeling and I love the people I work with.

Surprisingly, it hasn’t been as hard as I expected to get back into a routine of putting on clothes that don’t stretch and fixing a lunch in advance.

What’s been harder than I expected is the separation from my mama friends. We have a close-knit playgroup that started on The moms I call my best friends probably never would’ve crossed paths if not for that group. They are all Read More

Earlier this week I was having lunch with one of my dearest friends and she told me she has been offered an amazing work opportunity. She seemed so hesitant, though. It turns out some of the people she currently works with have been a little passively aggressively negative about her move. My guess Read More

Last night one of my great friends came to this tiny town we currently live in. He’s running for Secretary of State, and I couldn’t be more proud. We met in college as officers in the Young Democrats (wait Republicans, Independents and otherwise undeclared readers! This post isn’t about politics).

He held a fundraiser here because one of his best friends and political allies is a native son of this town. The friend has Read More

Are You My Julie

May 6, 2010 |

After my last post Charlie and I went to Sprouts (baby story time) at our local children’s library. We were, of course, 10 minutes late but no one seemed to mind. There were only two other moms there, one with a 2 1/2 month old and one with a 19 month old. The girl leading it was very sweet and patient as none of the kids were paying any attention to her stories or her songs.

But the real fun started after “story time” was over. Read More

I Miss My Julie Friend

Lately, I have found myself longing for the kind of friendship I had with a former coworker in Little Rock. Julie and I both worked as sales reps for a fortune 5 (not 500) company we’ll call MegaBigCorp. Read More
