"I'm finished, I'm getting you off my chest..."

*I just want to say "I'm sorry" in advance to some of my nicer friends who may read this journal. I am about to say something not very nice. *


One of the things I love about my fiance , is the company he keeps. Pete has some amazing friends, who he loves very much and who love him very much in return. He has friends who would throw down with any one or any thing, who have been there for the better and can stand by at the worst. Pete has some awesome people around him, and having them in my life- even peripherally- is a privilege.

Sadly, though, he has a friend or two (who shall remain nameless) who happen to be complete waste of space. Who let themselves be dictated by immaturity and an inability to be a leader, not a follower. And I feel really, really sorry for you, and not just because you are married to a complete C. Uou Next Tuesday who is completely devoid of personality (unless she has a few drinks in her). I feel sorry for you because you are a spineless loser who has no idea on earth what kind of friend he has.

So bite my ass.

* For those of you who I love, I am sorry you had to read that- I usually do not like to speak badly of other people. I usually don't have to! I am a very lucky person in that way. That said, sometimes people need to be called out, even in my passive-aggressive way I displayed just now. Not to mention that people should really know better then to act like idiots when I am getting my period! The End. *

My LTYM Experience or How I Accidentally Ended Up On A Stage

The final chapter of my participation in the Listen To Your Mother Show ended with our live performances. I turned 39 on May 3rd and on May 7th, I was on a stage at the beautiful South Orange Performing Arts Center with 12 other souls  (as well as our incredible producers, Sandy, Brooke and Deborah) that handily out-shined the beauty of the space. It all still feels as if it may have been a dream. A very gratifying, emotional dream.

It ended the same way it began, with my worrying about clothes. Before our first rehearsal, I was stressing out knowing that the next morning, I would be meeting a room full of strangers. Not only that, I would be taking a cast picture with these strangers and reading a story of the worst moments of my life. It seemed like too much to be vulnerable about my story and about my precarious self-esteem at the same time.

Despite all of that, I got into my car on a Saturday morning, armed with coffee and the soundtrack to "Hamilton." Clad in the pink a…

Maybe I'm An A-Hole, But I'll Pass On The Pity Date

Do not hate me for this one, guys.

It would seem that "Prom-posals" are the new thing. It's when one teen asks another to prom, but makes it an event. Balloon bouquets, flash-mobs, celeb cameos, flower arrangements- some of these put my actual marriage proposal to shame, much less my awkward heywannagotoprom conversation I had with the guy I was dating my senior year.

It just occurred to me that I should dig up one of my prom pictures. {shudder}

Anyway, back to proms. These extravagant invites have become the stuff of YouTube videos everywhere and, even thought I think the way these have become over-the-top is kind of insane, I'm totally along for the ride. Roses in math class? A flock of minstrels from the glee club to serenade a prom hopeful? I will watch the shit out of that. I think the romanticism is sweet.

At some point, I start to think about PJ as a prom-goer. Right now, while he's in kindergarten, it's hard to know if that's in the cards for him.…

There's still much to learn, so many dreams to earn...

Today is April 2nd, World Autism Awareness Day, and it is Autism Awareness Month.

The month begins on the heels of news from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that Autism is on the rise. 1 in 68 children in the areas followed by the CDC are identified as having an Autism Spectrum Disorder, up from 1 in 88 just a few years ago. In New Jersey, the numbers are far higher then the national average at 1 in 45. 

You can view a summary of the latest CDC report here, but there are two points of the report that stood out to me:
Less than half (44%) of children identified with ASD were evaluated for developmental concerns by the time they were 3 years old.Most children identified with ASD were not diagnosed until after age 4, even though children can be diagnosed as early as age 2.Content source: National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities
PJ was diagnosed with Autism shortly after his second birthday. Pete and I had already utilized an e…
