The post I have been trying to write for months…

December 12, 2019

Because of my ADHD: 1. I have sat down to write this blog post over a dozen times in the past few months, but somehow instead ended up being a member of the Love Your Melon monthly club, reorganized my mug cabinet, watched every video of my children ever recorded, typed up my lines for …

Mama’s First Mammo

December 7, 2019

Technically, I was not due for my first mammogram until next year when I turn 40, but as this year comes to a close, I decided I wanted to have all my parts checked. I don’t know if it is my age or something in the environment, but I feel like everyday I hear about …

Whack-a-mole. And life.

November 4, 2019

Recently, I have been feeling like as soon as one part of my life feels settled and under control, inevitably something unexpected in another area of my life pops up. I started feeling like I was constantly swimming upstream, some days barely keeping my head above water, and then it hit me: LIFE IS A …

Do scary shit.

October 20, 2019

This year I committed to doing scary shit. Now, let’s take a moment to clarify what that means: When I say “scary”, I mean things that feel out my reach or out of my comfort zone. That is vastly different than doing STUPID shit that could cause me bodily harm. Big difference. Big. Learning a …

When are you going to try stand up?

October 5, 2019

Of all the choices I have made in my performance career, the one that has been most surprising to friends and family (and, frankly, to me) was a few months ago when I dipped my toe in the Chicago comedy circuit. The most frequent question I am asked these days is: HOW did you end …

Blessing Bag Day!

September 22, 2019

Hooray! It is one of my favorite days of the year! Blessing Bag day. When my middle son, Elliott, was five years old, he had to choose a mitzvah project for his preschool class (a mitzvah is a good deed). Since he was three years old, he has been interested in homelessness and how he …

History? Herstory? MUGSTORY!

September 17, 2019

Every day begins with the ritual of choosing the right mug for my coffee (there are about 110 of them, so this is no easy feat!). Do I need inspiration today with a motivational mug? Do I want to think about someone I love who gifted me a mug? Do I want to close my …

You are enough.

September 11, 2019

The first time my acting teacher looked at me and said, “You are enough,” I burst into tears. Full blown ugly cry. Here is the truth: while being back on stage filled my cup in more ways than I could imagine, it also swung the door WIDE OPEN for all of the voices telling me: …

What do you say to RBG?

September 9, 2019

Today I had the honor and blessing to witness the wedding of someone I love very much, officiated by RUTH BADER GINSBURG. I mean, she literally walked down the aisle, three feet from me. I knew better than to try to touch her, for fear of being shot by one of six US Marshalls who …

Steam Room Etiquette

September 2, 2019

I went to the gym this morning and decided to steam out my cold and allergy yuck. I wrapped up in a towel (you know, the gym ones that someone designed and thought were large enough to fit around a human being, but must have forgotten to enlarge the trial size). I walked into the …

Purple Flowers

September 1, 2019

Before you proceed with this blog post, please know that this has been my experience with my own spiritual journey. I know not everyone believes in guides or spirits and some think it is flat out bullshit. For me, it is significant and has brought me strength and guidance. If that resonates with you, we …

O God. The Pressure of a Blog.

August 15, 2019

What, you want me to blog? You want like a blog? Oh, God, the pressure of a blog. If you understand the reference, you are currently replaying one of my favorite movie scenes in your mind. If not, then you were likely born after 1985. I will give you a pass this time, but please …
