  I look forward to our golf outing every year. Anyone who knows me for any length of time has just burst out in a big thunderous belly laugh. For me to say I look forward to anything even tangentially sports related is a feat. Of course, our golf outing also comes with day long great food so maybe that explains it. (The chilled lobster tails and shrimp with never ending rounds of lamb chops were a great start to the cocktail party. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.) But seriou...

  Dads spend twice as much time now with their kids than they did in 1989 and triple the time they spent in 1965. I saw this statistic reported as Father’s Day was coming around last week. With all of the social and economic issues wrapped around these statistics, they made me think generally about their impact. Putting aside a discussion of the reasons why, this statistic says that today’s generation has the benefit of more active involvement of their fathers. In my es...

  It was one of those crazy commutes this morning. At every turn, something went wrong – and I had to be at a meeting at 10 am. I hate those pressure filled kind of mornings. First, my line on the LIRR was pretty much just down. [Did you know that I hate the LIRR? Are you my Facebook friend? If so, you would know for sure.] After fixing that fiasco, with a special thanks to my husband who drove me across the island to a different line, the subway was delayed too. I wa...

  About what I do. Yes, my job. I had coffee today with a networking contact. I hope you all meet her someday. She was talking about how sometimes after years of doing the same thing, people get bored and lose interest in what had once brought them joy and excitement. She made me think. When I started practicing years ago, quite honestly, I did not have a specific path in the law. My direction in employment law was accidental – but things happen for a reason. I have alway...

Based on my apparent blog themes, I think I must be missing my children. So, here is today’s story and it goes back to Passover. In my house we have had a Passover tradition for over 15 years. When we get to the part in the Seder where we talk about frogs, we sing a frog song from nursery school (yes, nursery school)– and then we pelt Eric with little plastic green frogs that each guest has been given. Actually, the frogs sit right on top of the Haggadah at each place sett...

  I don’t really like the title of my blog but here’s what’s on my mind. Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday and this is the first time that neither of my children will be with me. My daughter is across the world working in India and my son is a lot closer but working hard heading into finals. I am super proud of both. Don’t get me wrong. I know that I will have a lovely day spending time with my own mother, my sister and her family. I know that I will hear from both ...

This is a blog of few words because I can’t find the words. Pittsburgh, New Zealand, Poway. And that’s the short list. Are we growing numb to ever burgeoning evidence of unabashed hatred? Does this list really need to continue to grow? Must houses of worship create armed barriers so that their congregants can worship without fear of facing a gunman? Really, no words. ...

  Some of you may know that my daughter has accepted a new job for the fall. She will be working at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor doing health economics policy research. We are all super excited -- but that is not the purpose of this blog. I am a pretty regular poster on Facebook about my children but for some reason, this news hasn’t yet made it to my feed but without intention or thought on my part. Really, just busy. The result has been interesting to me. ...

  It took more than 8 1/2 hours but the fire at Notre Dame is finally out. I’ve never been to Paris, but I’ve always wanted to go. A bucket list kind of thing. People who have visited speak with such excitement about the Cathedral of Notre Dame, its beauty and history and the amazing artwork. The video coverage was horrifying. Through the scaffolding, the flames were whipping large and everywhere. I can’t imagine what being a Parisian must have been like while this was...

For those of us in the Northeast, it was in the air today. We’ve flirted with the change in weather a few times over the last few weeks, but today the thermometer hovered around 75 degrees. That got me thinking about summer – and the beach. I’m a big fan of the beach and a book. A day like today reminds me that time of year is just around the corner. It also brings back that back in school feeling knowing that summertime is coming. Do you remember that? How exciting it...
