I am usually beckoned by "Mrs.," "Ma’am," and most often ...

    Why I Eat Meat (And Why You Should, Too)

    Why I Eat Meat (And Why You Should, Too)
    I started writing about food because I was tired of vegetarians and vegans telling me I should stop eating meat all together as my carnivorous consumption was inhumane and contrary to humanities’ evolution as a species. I eat meat. I will continue to eat meat. And I think you should too. One of my quickest responses to the vegetarian/vegan anti-meat rhetoric ...

    The Art of Caring: The Difference That Makes a Difference

    The Art of Caring: The Difference That Makes a Difference
    Robert Fulghum’s seminal 1986 essay, "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten," invited us all to reflect on simple ideas for getting along that are typically taught to young children. I liked the concept of the essay and saw in its simplicity a timely and timeless message about caring. I also thought it interesting that some critics considered ...

    The Bittersweet End of Maternity Leave

    The Bittersweet End of Maternity Leave
    I enjoyed a glorious twelve weeks of maternity leave home with my baby girl thanks to FMLA (Family & Medical Leave Act.) I can’t even believe that I contemplated taking less time off from work. Twelve weeks fly by fast even without twelve weeks worth of sleep. And just when I’ve started to get the hang of how to be a ...

    Searching for a Job... Again

    Searching for a Job... Again
    I arrive at the crossroads of desperate lost souls and hopeful promises. I sign in at the marble lobby with the overly friendly receptionist in a tight skirt and frizzy ponytail. A clipboard, akin to a doctor’s office, holds the names and the arrival times of us job seekers. A man uses the tactic of innocent flirtation with the receptionist. He ...

    Ecofeminism

    Ecofeminism
    Gas prices make us cringe. Ninety-three dollars to fill my SUV last week. Sad, but true. Old habits die hard. Many of us still spend hours per day in our cars. Ever have a day when your errands seem to span the length of Route 3? Carbon emissions from our vehicles are depleting our ozone. What’s a poor little feminist to ...

    Women's Work Wardrobes Through the Decades

    Let’s face it. The way you dress at work says a lot about who you are, what you do, and where you want to go.

    Nine Ways to Be On Time Every Time

    Nine Ways to Be On Time Every Time
    There are three things that remind me of my father’s car: the Beach Boys, ChapStick, and a clock that is intentionally ten minutes fast. My father is one of those people who lives in his own time zone: Jeff Standard Time, sandwiched somewhere between Greenwich Mean and Mountain. I used to tease my father for setting his clocks fast to try ...

    Facing the New Boss Whose Job I Wanted
    Yesterday was a blissful day: A day of purging closets, toy boxes and all out onslaught of cleaning. I love these days, the feeling of bagging up that which has overstayed its welcome in my closets and donating it so it can be adopted by the next person. The feeling of passing my things on gave me a lift as I ...
