Single People

Do you ever notice that people feel sorry for you when you are single? Quite frankly, except for needing some sunscreen on my back this past weekend I can't think of a time since I've been divorced that the thought "I wish I had a guy here" has really entered my mind.

My singledom has been a wonderful opportunity to "find myself" again, not raise bratty children, and reconnect with some fabulous girlfriends. But, I have realized that people don't quite see it my way.

Little Jewish mothers are constantly "hooking" me up with their sons and telling me stories about how hard it was for them when they were single. When did the phrase "my better half" move from a compliment to literally mean we are only half a person when we are single?

Not that I don't like going on dates with nice messianic men, but I'm not half a person and I'm not lonely.

Plus, they have sunscreen in spraycans now. :)

Happy Anniversary to Me!!!

Today is the one year anniversary of opening my law office. Yay! We had a big celebration at lunch.

God has truly blessed me the growth of my firm, and I give Him all the glory.

Europe was wonderful and I am planning on sharing pictures with you all soon.

4th of July!

My family celebrated the 4th early this year...on the 3rd. We all came down after work and had a wonderfully grand time. My parents brought their usual Albertson's cake (their icing is the best!) and then my cousin and her husband lit fireworks for about an hour. We're talking real fireworks. They spent a lot of money and the family had a wonderful time.
I'm not sure if you can tell from the picture, but that is a trailer out in the middle of the pasture that some of the small fireworks are being shot from. You know you're from Oklahoma when this seems normal to you. :)

I'm leaving for Europe tomorrow at 7a.m. YAY!

hugs, love and chihuahua kisses

p.s. I have updated my goals, books, etc. on my sidebar.

Condoms, Wal-Mart, Babies oh My!

Yesterday after services I went by a local Wal-Mart to pick up a few last minute things for my trip. I'm bringing full bottles of most things since I'm going to be gone almost two weeks. Travel size things are just too small. So, I'm leaving the deoderant aisle and heading toward the contact solution aisle. To get to contacts, you have to go by condoms.

There is a young man, about my age VERY intently studying the condoms. I'm thinking, somebody is preparing for a wild Saturday night out. Then I see his daughter. I'd say she was about 2 or 3. She was just sitting right there looking just as intently at the condoms with him.

Now, I know a 2-3 yr old doesn't know about condoms. But, it was a very funny sight to see him checking them out so seriously with his sweet and innocent little girl right there.
