Jordana’s Blog: A Brand New Car!

A brand new car is a luxury. My dad never bought a new car, he always drove used. “A better value,” he’d say. He’s probably right. But I like new cars.

Sick Day!

Remember sick days from school? They were awesome. You may have felt awful, but the idea of staying home alone, eating soup and watching “The Price Is Right” was the best!

Did I Leave The Oven On Or Did You?

“Mom, can we use the oven?” That was the last thing I heard before I drifted off to sleep Sunday afternoon. I’m pretty sure I didn’t answer because the answer would have been, “No.”

The Cure Of IRSphobia

I am afraid of the IRS. It’s irrational as I always file early and usually get a refund. But I get that knot in my stomach every year thinking about what could go wrong this time.

Is She Gonna Blow?

I know it’s absolutely insane that I keep a toy in the house that may (or may not) spontaneously combust at any time. I’ve wrestled with this. But the kids made a compelling case.

Not Naive … Optimistic

Have you ever gotten sucked in to buying one of those As-Seen-On-TV products? Maybe you resisted the late night ad but then you saw it at Walgreens for only $9.99 you caved. Guilty.

Jordana’s Blog: What Are You Selling?

Are you working on your pitch? You know, the one you’ll repeat at every holiday gathering in the next few weeks. It’ll sound like an elevator pitch at your company party, it’ll sound like a sales pitch at your friend’s company party, and it’ll sound like a defense argument at your family holiday party.

Jordana’s Blog: I Love It When I’m Wrong

My favorite yoga class was canceled a few weeks ago, so after boycotting the new class that replaced it for a while, (my silent protest that hurt no one but me) I decided it was time to try the new teacher. After all, it wasn’t his fault the other class was canceled.

Jordana’s Blog: Not Too Soon Anymore

Nearly two years ago a very well-meaning friend sent me a book called ‘Divorce is a Mitzvah.” I threw it in a closet … too soon. Two years later, I still haven’t read it, because now I don’t need to. Is it too soon for me to write all the good things about my divorce?

Jordana’s Blog: Women Are All The Same … All Fabulous!

I had two extraordinary meetings with amazing women this week.

Jordana’s Blog: Spring Cleaning

I love cleaning. Not toilets or ovens, but my closet, yes. Usually when I tell my friends I’m about to embark on this endeavor, they get nervous. Because my closet (and yours) is the physical manifestation of what’s going on in my head and heart.

Jordana’s Blog: What 93 Has To Tell 40

My Grammy is 93. She’s sharp as a tack, lives independently in Florida, still drives and wears as much bling as my 9-year-old. I saw her this week for Passover and my dad’s 70th birthday party.

Jordana’s Blog: Who Said That?

When did I get to be the grownup? Some of the things that come out of my mouth have made me pause and look around for who actually said that. This happened the other day in the car. In the car that wasn’t totaled.

Jordana’s Blog: The Wisdom Of A 9-Year-Old

Crazy title I know, because when my kids were little and I was doing ECFE some mom’s would wax poetic about how much they were learning from their infant and how they were growing as a person now that they were a mother.

Jordana’s Blog: The Most Beautiful Things I’ve Ever Heard

Words are powerful and when they are used for good, spoken with love, they can create moments and feelings you never forget.

Jordana’s Blog: Honor Thy Father And Thy Mother

A visit from the parents is always an adventure. You never know if there will be a blowout fight, some passive aggressive verbal slights or just typical disdainful judgments about who you’re sleeping with or how you parent.

Jordana’s Blog: Sisters, Blood And Otherwise

I had a sister once. (I still do have one blood relative sister, she’s amazing, alive and well in Long Island, love you Deb.) This sister was not blood, but we shared a brain and a heart.

Jordana’s Blog: It’s Official — Part 2: Got The Get

I got the get. Let me give you some background (thank you Wikipedia) before I dive in to the experience.

Jordana’s Blog: It’s Official, Back Away From The Credit Cards

The need to shop is overwhelming. It’s a familiar feeling. It’s my vice, my weakness, what I do when I’m super stressed. Not healthy, but I’m aware of it. And here it is again. The trigger was the email from my lawyer that I’m officially divorced.

Jordana’s Blog: Judah Maccabee Threw Up In My Living Room

It looks like Judah Maccabee threw up in my dining room. And I love it. Dreidels hang from the ceiling, menorahs are fully candled, Hanukkah is here.

Jordana’s Blog: Humility, Thy Name Is Motherhood

So, I’m in the Target checkout line with my youngest, my sweet, angelic, perfect, Ruby. I say, “Ruby, say thank you to the Target lady, her name is Trish.” Ruby deadpans, “Your name sounds like trash.” I turn ruby-red, apologize profusely, and slink out of Target. OMG! Humility thy name is Motherhood.

For the first time ever, I mean ever, my house was too quiet on Thanksgiving.

Jordana’s Blog: Perspective (In Yiddish)

I like to think I have a good perspective on my life…but then I meet with real adversity and once again get schooled on how much perspective matters.

Jordana’s Blog: Click Moments

If you really listen and pay attention to the stories and lessons of your life, you can find them. Click moments.
