  • Happy Birthday to SNORK!

    Happy Birthday to SNORK!

    SNORK turns 2 today! Many thanks to all of my subscribers and supporters. It’s been two years since SNORK’s painless delivery, and it’s been a labor of love ever since. I recently had the chance to share some thoughts about reading, writing and SNORKing in an interview with Prose.  You can read it by clicking HERE. As […]

  • Daddy’s Greatest Hits

    Daddy’s Greatest Hits

    On weekdays, we didn’t see much of my dad – he’d usually leave the house before we got up for school. If he made it home in time, we’d all have dinner together and then, after the dishes were cleared, Dad would open his briefcase and spread out the work he brought home. He’d toil […]

  • Horsing Around

    Horsing Around

    Summers in my heyday included weekend trips to Lake George, sunbathing in Grafton Park, and the much-anticipated Saratoga Racing Season. Spending the afternoon at the flat track wasn’t just a day at the races; it was an event. Each year, I’d plan what I’d wear, how much money I’d bring, how much I’d be willing […]

  • Good Grief

    Good Grief

    Our family vacation was only three weeks away when we got the bad news.  It would change everything. About a month earlier, we decided that our health routine could probably use some tweaking…a lot of tweaking, actually.  None of us were really feeling our best, so we had full work-ups done at a wellness center in Manhattan. […]

    Ladybug

    When I worked on Wall Street, the CEO of our company would sometimes ask me for huge, labor-intensive projects, which were tons of extra work and would prevent me from doing the job I was supposed to be doing. When I would turn these projects in, he’d say things like, “What’s this? Oh, did I […]

  • The Lady Of The House

    The Lady Of The House

    By the time our daughter was born, it was obvious that our little garden apartment could no longer contain us. We’d shoved her crib into her big brother’s room, and wedged her changing table in a corner next the closet (the door of which could no longer enjoyed its full range of motion).  Her dresser […]

    What’d You Call Me?

    For the Podcast, click here!  In the Old Testament, God sent Adam out to name all the animals. He came up with things like, dog, cat, hippopotamus – which is a lot of syllables for a guy who was just created. Kudos! Even so, people names can be a bit trickier because, let’s face it, a […]

It just so happened, that was also the weekend I chose to bring my boyfriend home to meet my family. Since we are Catholic and he is Jewish, […]

  • It’s Not A Floater

    It’s Not A Floater

    Every year since we got married, it’s been the same thing: my husband forgets Valentine’s Day. In past years, this has made me mad, sad and exasperated – especially during those early years. He was working long hours, building his company and I was working hard as a stay-at-home mother. It was exhausting. What little […]
