After having my second baby just a few weeks ago, I've now decided that my name officially sucks. How did this happen? I loooooooooved my name. I still love my name. But it just doesn't have the same magic anymore.
Ah, first dates. They can drive you mad. If you only knew the future, you could plan out everything in advance. But first dates are kind of like playing the lottery. You don't know if you've won until the drawing... and the odds are about the same.

I recently calculated how many dinners I have prepared for my three children, who are ages 15, 13, and 9. My best estimate is 5,000. When I cook, I also do their dishes and clean up the kitchen, so I’ve also done that at least 5,000 times.

These are some actual J-Date e-mails that I received when I was on the site, looking for a man. To amuse myself, I commented on the e-mails (but I never sent them). I also never found a man - but when you read the gems below, it won't be hard to see why. Clearly, I thought that I’d want to use these one day.
