Desk to Dinner

A day that begins with a train ride, followed by 2 subway changes and a lunch meeting, another afternoon meeting (and yet another subway ride) and ends with a client dinner at a jazzy steakhouse (and of course bath night for the three year old) is quite the wardrobe marathon. In late May, with the ever fluctuating temperature, a blazer is your best friend. (So is long-wear lipstick, and a nice full glass of wine.)

Happy Birthday!

My prince is 3 today, or as his Godfather Tim calls him, HRH Tucker

May 13, 2014


Before my Dad passed away, he and my mom had gone to contract building a Kadey Krogen 55 foot yacht that would be their retirement home on the water. After some deliberation, my mom is going ahead with the purchase of the boat. Currently the boat is is nearing completion in Taiwan and should be stateside by next winter. I know Tuck will love going aboard and sailing with Nana, it makes my heart hurt thinking what my Dad is not here to see. But to see the glass half full, his dream boat is coming to life.

On another sentimental note, 3 years ago today (Friday the 13th) I went into labor with my baby love and he began his 36 hour journey into the world.

Thoughts on a Friday

Its OK to feel very stupid, after you've spent months bemoaning the fact that your toddler wont sleep alone, only discover that if you tell him you are going to sleep in your own room, he says 'OK' and goes right to sleep.

As the weekend approaches all I can think about is eating baked ziti, drinking margaritas with my friend, and playing trains on the kitchen floor with Tucker.

I skipped the gym most days this week, promising not to eat any dinner to make for it, and ended up drinking wine and eating pretzels while standing in the kitchen come 9:00 pm. Each Night.

Choosing the cake design for a 3 year old's party takes as much time as outlining a legal brief on Health Care Reform for a new client.

I still get excited about my birthday. Even if I say I don't.
