Round and Round I Go

Posted by 40 mins ago 2 Comments 84 views

Last week I wrote about my post-work dinner pity party and Jaime commented: Don’t you feel like you’re on a hamster wheel sometimes? … I saw it days ago but I’ve been busy spinning my wheel to respond! My answer is a resounding… YES! OMG yes, and I think it’s getting worse the older I get. […]

Here it is… I can’t do it. I can’t do one more thing today. I’m done. I just wrapped up a phone interview for What You Can When You Can: Healthy Living on Your Terms. I came from work and made dinner plus a pot of chili so I would have some lunch options the […]

21 Years and Counting

Posted by 1 week ago 14 Comments 430 views

Last night The Husband and I went out sans kids for dinner to celebrate 21 years — not 21 years married but 21 years together. We hooked up, err, I mean “started dating” Feb 1, 1995. 1995. Doesn’t that sound like eons ago? I mean, I actually know people who weren’t even alive in 1995 and […]

This Picture Says it All…

We’re going on day 5 of no school from the blizzard and I may be losing my mind. Not necessarily because of the kids. I’m just flying by the seat of my pants at the moment. Earlier in the week the 10-Year-Old was sick. Now the 4-Year-Old is sick. I’ve shoveled snow in some capacity […]

We survived the Blizzard of 2016! Now that it’s all said and done we have about 2 and a half feet out there. It’s a bit crazy. The Husband and I shoveled and shoveled and shoveled! Our neighbor helped at the end with his snowblower and we were ecstatic to get a break. The kids? […]

The hatches are battened down, the snow is falling and I spent the entire evening cooking… and doing puzzles. I’m not going to lie. I’m looking forward to being snowed in for a couple of days. I just hope the power stays on and the kids don’t drive me crazy. Anyway, I thought I’d take […]

If We Had Coffee…

Posted by 3 weeks ago 10 Comments 427 views

I’m taking a page out of my friend Carla’s book. She used to do these posts called “If we had coffee” and I always thought the idea was way more clever than my go-to, the brain dump post. Even though “brain dump” is more descriptive of my need to get all the thoughts out of my head. If I don’t, I start […]
