Is This Thing On?

OMG you guys. It’s been a while. It may have even been a while and a half, I am not even sure. I fell asleep and I woke up and it was the year 3076, blogs were obsoletes and I was actually deceased.  Yet here I am. Ever the crafty one, I built a time-machine in 3076 (yes from beyond the grave) and I beamed myself back to 2019. I found a tiny 11″ laptop and a sofa and I figured: why not? I came back here to ask you and ask myself some very fundamental questions, such as: do I even still lik...

Get a Raise Last Year? Choose Savings Inflation and Not Lifestyle Inflation

Getting an annual raise or a promotion that comes with a higher salary is a great feeling. It makes you feel appreciated for what you do, and, if your finances were tight, it brings a sigh of relief. What’s the first thing people tend to think of immediately after a raise? What to do with the extra income, of course, and usually, where to spend that sum. It’s not the immediate reward that’s the biggest problem though. Going out to a nice restaurant, taking the weekend away, or even purchasing a...

Your Next Big Job – Who To Talk To

Your next big job may not come from an in-house counsel board as many positions never go public and are filled via word of mouth. When you are are looking, don’t forget to talk to those closest to home – your next gig may be closer than you think. Don’t forget to continuously evaluate whether you are in the right spot for your career goals, and keep close contact with a legal recruiter you know and trust. “If you’re looking for a new job…“Which influential person would I invite for a networki...

Block, Rinse, Repeat

Ten years ago, I was writing about a new chapter in our lives as a family. My oldest was 5 and starting Kindergarten, my daughter was a toddler, and I hadn’t even entertained the thought of adding a third child to our family! The worries and issues were different and living online was different. I was brand new to Twitter, and the online world was essentially new for all of us. Mommy blogging was as brand new and bright eyed as my babies. My girls! (As in most photos I share publicly onlin...

From the Atlantic's James Fallows. . . to Pete Buttigieg

In the Fall of Rome, Good News for America. The October Atlantic just arrived and I was immediately intrigued by James Fallows fascinating article. Actually, it's a response to Peter Mellon's, The World of Late Antiquity and the new book, Walter Scheidel's Escape from Rome. Fallows argues that though the US government is essentially sterile and self-paralyzed, he's found a terrific amount of resilience in state and local governments. In fact, he's found that state and local g...

When LinkedIn Doesn’t Matter In The Job Search

I was talking to my friend Susan Joyce, owner of, and she was telling me about someone in their job search. She said something profound… as she was talking about this person and how they were (or weren’t) using LinkedIn: “I don’t think it matters what he puts in LinkedIn. He is so well connected, he had his list of target companies,…” She went on to talk about how this person is really into networking. Of course, this person might not say it that way, but the reality is that a lot o...

To Know the Love of Christ

What do you pray for your church? I find Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians interesting: For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth an...

New status symbols of middle age

The last time I wrote a post with this title, I wrote that women need a stay-at-home husband. And clearly, I was wrong, because later research showed that women who are breadwinners with stay-at-home husbands are headed for divorce. And so was I. So I think what I’m best at is showing what we think we want, regardless of whether it’s actually good to want these things. 1. A traditional marriage You probably know that men report being a few inches taller than they are, and tall women report b...
