Pandemic or not – It’s Single Working Women’s Week 2021!


It’s that time again to reflect on what an amazing single woman you are. You not only earn the bacon yourself, you also bring home the bacon, cook it, clean it up, and take out the trash. You keep the house clean (in whatever way makes you comfortable), keep the pantry and fridge stocked, and pay the bills. You comfort yourself when you get hurt. You find joy in the small things as well as the big ones.

And if you’re lucky, you have a few other amazing single friends to share your joys, trials and tribulations with. Friends are precious – golden. Chicago has been a gold mine of friendship for me. Happily, we’ve been able to maintain our bond via virtual gatherings/happy hours while we’ve remained sequestered during this pandemic.

If you’re also a single mom, extra-extra kudos to you. There are no words to describe the joy – and agony – of meeting the challenges of single parenthood.

Congratulations on your successful single life, ladies. Hope you are vaccinated and surviving the pandemic with grace and good humor. Even if you haven’t achieved all – or even any of – those lofty goals you hoped you would during lockdown, you’re still afloat. Be proud!
