The End of an Era

My hubby is now in his 13th season as a professional basketball player. I have been overseas with him for all but 3 of those years, making this my 10th season abroad. His first year overseas was my last year of law school. It was tough being apart, especially because we had just had our […]

The Time Change Vortex

So today I caught poop in my hands. Not theoretical poop either (if such a thing exists). But I literally had to catch the poop in my hands. Had I really thought it through, it would have been best to just let it hit the floor and deal with it in one clean swoop. But […]

In The Blink Of An Eye

It was just last week when I wrote of my frustration at my husband not being signed yet. But this business moves fast and within a few days, sometimes hours, of entering negotiations with a team, you’re expected to drop it all and hightail it to the next location. As was the case with us. […]
