Hilary

CFO by day, writer by night… I try to find the absurdity in life, or maybe the absurdity just finds me?  Lately I liken my days to playing dodge ball... I am just trying to catch as many balls as I can without getting smacked in the face.

Time makes you bolder...

“How are you holding up,” my friend asked me a year ago today.“Fine!” I answered with forced enthusiasm.She didn’t say a word but raised her eyebrows, questioning my answer.“I’m fine,” I repeated.  “Why wouldn’t I be?” I asked as my mind raced.  Truth be told,  I was beyond stressed, overwhelmed and quite irritable....more

Seven Hundred and Thirty Days Later

“Is that a mobile home?” My mother asked as we were driving through a neighboring beach community this past summer.“Yes,” I answered, quietly.“They’re allowed to park it in the street?” She asked, innocently.“Yes.  After all, what choice do they have? They have to live somewhere.” I replied.  “Look at the house that it is parked in front of.  It’s still condemned.  They probably didn’t have insurance and don’t have money to repair or rebuild it.  Under the circumstances, that mobile home is probably the best they can do.”...more

Time after time

It changes slightly, but pretty much the same scene unfolds at my house every single day of the week.  I race around like a madwoman, trying to cram three and a half hours of activity into the two hours I have before I need to shower and dash off to work.“Can you slow down, please?” my husband pretty much begs. This request usually comes as I am yielding a knife.“What are you talking about?” I ask.  Confused.“You are flying!  You don’t even realize how fast you are going.  If you don’t slow down, one of these days you will really get hurt.”...more

To Napa with Love

The pictures of Napa are haunting me. I can’t erase the devastation and destruction from my mind.Is it because I have worked in the wine industry for the past fifteen years, and my professional life is so tied to this region?  NO....more

And time goes by so...

I don’t understand it at all.  All last week, everywhere I seemed to go, I kept hearing the same thing repeated again and again.   “Summer is already over,” friends, co-workers, and even radio personalities kept saying.  In reply, I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs, that it’s not.  We have almost two full months left.  But I couldn’t mutter a word because I felt the same way. ...more

Sweet Baby James

“I wonder who is playing at Jones Beach this summer?” I uncharacteristically asked my husband a couple of months ago. Now don’t get me wrong. I love going to a concert but my husband is more the music lover in our house.  He has always been the one to initiate getting tickets for every concert we have gone to. I picked up the iPad and started scrolling.  “Oh my GOD!” I exclaimed when I saw it.  “Jams Taylor is playing.” “What?” my husband questioned. “He is playing this summer.  I want to go. We have to go!”...more

Size. Does it really matter?

“Wow! I don’t know what it is but I am loving my new office,” I said to one of the girls I work with several hours after we officially moved into our new space. “Really, you do?” she asked ....more
