Bottle it Up or Let it Out

I consider myself a sensitive person. Although, I keep a lot of my sensitivity on the inside. Something someone says will offend me and often, I don't say anything. After years of therapy, I've learned to express my emotions better. The trouble is, it takes me an extremely long time to get the chutzpah to [...]

Motherhood is Not Glamorous

Ari just slammed my finger in the bathroom door. Given it was an accident, but I screamed and cried. Wil was there, thank G-d. He gave me a big hug, and after he realized exactly what happened, he said:"It's okay babe, he didn't mean it."I know he didn't mean it. He was trying to close [...]

Fighting With Text Messaging

This morning I got a text message from a friend asking me how I was. I thought about replying and then I decided against it. I think the text messaging era is out of control.People are calling each other less and less. I can't tell you how many text messages I receive asking "how I [...]

Internet Emotions or Lack Thereof

What I'm about to write may sound hypocritical. It makes me sad that we, as people, express our ourselves and our emotions primarily through the internet and text messaging. Now I know what you're thinking, "You're a blogger!" Yes, I am. And I love blogging! But I also relish in expressing myself in "real life."I [...]
