Trying stand-up comedy in her 40's, because being a broke single mom just wasn't stressful enough.

CNN story

I am 2 for 2 in getting my iReports chosen to be vetted by CNN and to appear in the feature story.

I wrote the producer and thanked her and told her that I could be depressed that my life is CNN-worthy, but that I choose to believe that they like my writing style instead. She wrote me back and said that my writing style is entertaining, relate-able, and captivating and that in this case, they really wanted the point of view of a single mom. I’ll take that.
