Fall from grace

It still feels surreal to me. I’d always thought of myself as being accomplished, confident and certainly much higher than average at what I do. I pushed myself to limits I had never known possible. I battled asthma attacks in the office, but willed myself to stay on in the name of responsibility and doing […]

In a fit of anger…

I am sick and tired of things around here. Why won’t you see how our marriage is falling apart? Do you know how unhappy I am each day? That you expect for me to work, care for our child exclusively, and keep our home clean and tidy? I don’t know for how long more I […]

A Problem

You have a problem, he says. Because he is my husband and he says this, like he is perfect, I resent him. I get angry. I become defensive. I cook up reasons why I don’t have a problem. I tell him, this is my money. I’ve earned it through sheer hard work. I want to spoil […]

Whoever said that…

…money doesn’t make the world go round, or that it doesn’t bring happiness, or that it’s less important than love and health- is a big fat liar! Money SO makes things work, and I’d be happy beyond words if only I had more money. As it is, I had to fork out over almost 2 […]

There must be more to life…

…..than loafing around, drinking beer every night with your male buddies, and making the appropriate wolf whistles to pretty young girls. You want them to think you’re macho, even though you have more respect for girls than that. …..than spending loads of money on your car and buying up every kind of Dodge Charger accessories […]

Credit card tips

Only use your credit card when you know you have that same amount in cash and can afford to pay that back. Carry only 1 credit card in your wallet for emergencies. And no, a sale at Miu Miu or Prada is not an emergency. A cash advance service is extremely enticing because, if you […]

Fixing things up

Of late, I’ve noticed little things in my home, little things that didn’t really matter to me before but now do. Like the broken doorknob in the guest bathroom. The squeaky hinge of my wardrobe door. The countless number of bulbs in our living room that have blown and have yet to be replaced. The […]

Technology

When I bought my Sony Ericsson mobile phone six months ago, I was excited because finally, I was going to get a Bluetooth headset with it. No more silly hands-free units with dangly wires and bits that get caught in your ear-rings  or tangles with your seat belt while you’re driving. Just a nifty little […]
