Woman Writing

Unfinished For Now

Do you know anyone who deals with change well? I don't think that person is me. 

I started sharing my essays as I was coping with uprooting my life and moving to another part of the country, re-entering the workforce after a brief hiatus from professional life to really random things.  The outlet provides a way of sharing humorous, exasperating and often ridiculous stories, from the mundane to the obscure. The title of the blog, Unfinished For Now seems completely appropriate, as I am not done with anything.  


My essays are well received, appearing on Scary Mommy, LinkedIn, Newsweek and Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PANCAN) delighting readers all over the world with heartfelt realism and humor.  My hope is that the stories will resonate and take you to some far away place, even for a few minutes.   


Thank you for reading.

And, by the end of each day, the proof of my experiences show up when I feel a twinge in my lower back when getting out of

Relying on Others – It’s as easy as it seems

Relying on Others – It’s as easy as it seems There comes a point in time when the light bulb goes off in your head and you realize that you aren’t as self-reliant as you formerly were, or ever was. It’s humbling when you acknowledge your limitations. Asking for help, even for a small thing may seem like second nature, but when it involves more than just time, it is intimidating just to ask. Sure, when I was in New York, I took it for granted that my parents, my next door neig

On the Right Track

On the Right Track My days of being a professional interviewee are over.  Since moving to North Carolina, I’ve haven’t worked, and the transition hasn’t been easy.  One would think that since I had all the time in the world, I would be much more productive than I’ve been.  That happens they say, when you suddenly stop what you’ve been doing – you lose that momentum and that is what I did the minute I said my farewell to my last job. I tried to find humorous things about my jo
