Wedding Planner Contracts & Legal Advice

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas, and often meet to gossip or share ideas. On the other hand, we bossed ourselves around, set impossible goals, and demanded longer hours than office jobs usually entail. It was the ultimate “flextime,” in that it depended on how flexible we felt each day, given deadlines, distractions, and workaholic crescendos. Aristotle made several efforts to explain how moral conduct contributes to the good life for human agents, including the Eqikh EudaimonhV and

Picture Perspective

When your grown children live several states away from you, a visit from them is precious. My youngest and his girlfriend are here with me now. Both are studying for bar exams, so I delight in the chance to be the supportive mom to the studious.

Being a Believer

My daughters went to their first concert this month and I missed it.  Last December, their dad and I decided it would be their gift from Santa Claus.  He was Santa this past year and in charge of making the purchase.  I knew all along I would not be accompanying them.  I felt the sting when the initial decision was made, but I knew I had 7 months to get over it. I also had sufficient time to figure out how I would participate in some small way for this momentous and fun occasion.  We went shopping to pick out

Cheating Statistics

The percentage of married women having extramarital affairs is on the rise.

Others speculate that technology from texting to Facebook is upping the numbers. Regardless of the stats, each person who divorces during or after their affair has

Independence

I bought a can opener.  One of the first things I needed after my ex-spouse moved out of the house was a can opener.  He had taken the electric one.  I bought one for cheap – the handheld kind.  When I used it for the first time, I started crying.  In that small, tiny moment, I felt self-sufficient.  I felt that I could take care of myself.  Fireworks erupted inside my mind.  I felt independent. I have found there is a fine line between independence and loneliness.  As a divorced person, I may celebrate that I can have pink polka
