Please Stand By

April 18, 2011

This is the longest that I’ve gone without blogging, but I have a great excuse. I spent the last few days in New Orleans at the Mom 2.0 Summit. And it was so much for me to take in that I am still processing it. I will write about it as soon as I can, […]

What Does This Email Say To You?

April 6, 2011

* * * Because to me it says, give me your father’s cell phone number, because my father died this afternoon and in my grief, any father will do. Apparently, that’s not what Husbandrinka meant. To translate from Husbandrinka to English, he meant that he wanted my father’s cell phone number, because his CELL PHONE […]
