Sometimes life becomes a little overwhelming and a break is needed.  I’ve been on one of these little time-outs for the past few weeks, but I’m feeling better and will be blogging original material very soon.  In the meantime, here is a post from 2010 — when I first began blogging — that I wrote […]

Like everyone, sometimes I get discouraged and I question life.  How am I contributing?  What happened to my big dreams? Will I ever find a love-partner? What can I do to add more excitement and meaning to my life?  On a particularly low day, I might even think: Is this all there is? But then […]

Hurricane Irene is passing through Boston.  Not really not that bad, and hopefully it won’t get any worse. We are on 24th floor of the Hilton (I’m here getting my daughter settled into her freshman year of college) and the building is creaking, groaning and swaying.  Actually, the swaying has made me a tad sick […]

I remember taking her to mommy & me classes when she was a toddler and several times people asked me […]

Keeping Perspective

by Nancy Wurtzel on October 22, 2010

The trucks rumbled in at 6:30 this morning.  We’re having the streets replaced in my LaLa Land housing development.  Phase one — the other side of our tract — has been completed and now it’s our turn. We had to have our cars out of the development by 7 am, not hard for me since […]
