Who Stole My Minivan?

When I came out of the grocery store last weekend, I trundled my laden shopping cart straight toward our silver minivan, only to discover that it was not our silver minivan. It was a Honda Odyssey, and a rather filthy one at that. Our vehicle was a slightly less soiled Toyota Sienna—and it was nowhere in sight.

 

I was a little embarrassed at my error. After all, I had chugged up to someone else’s minivan with utter assurance that it belonged to me. I had even taken out my keys…

Stir Crazy... But BLESSED!

Check out the latest post, and updated baby pictures!!

http://soapboxbyob.blogspot.com/

So, I've been in a slump for the past week or so. I think maybe the anti-anxiety meds and cold weather keeping me inside are working on my nerves and emotions. I've been feeling a bit down, and a bit fluffier than I would like because the cold, wet weather has not allowed me to continue with my running routine I had started a few weeks…

Story of My Final Pregnancy - My Birth Story

I was super excited and nervous when I found out that I was expecting in September of 2010.  Just a few weeks before I found out, I was watching my mother struggle with her battle with Pick’s disease.  Pick’s disease is a rare form of Alzheimer’s that affects the frontal lobe of the brain.  In August of 2010, she was in the final stages and was admitted to the ICU with severe case of pneumonia.  My dad was out of town, so I spent the last few days with her at her bed side along with my…

Dreaming of sunshine series part 2

SUN LOVERS HAVEN # 4  ST. LUCIA

One of the advantages of traveling to St. Lucia or any of the Caribbean Islands, is its proximity to the east coast. Just a few hours of  jetting and you’re in paradise.

St. Lucia is simply stunning. Located midway down the eastern Caribbean chain, between Martinique and St. Vincent, this exotic destination is only 14 miles wide and 27 miles long. On the eastern shore of the island is the Atlantic Ocean while its west coast delivers the calmer…

New Idea for Work - Keep Your Job Off Social Media

It is wonderful to keep your job by remembering to keep use social media like a responsible adult.

It seems that almost every day there are new laws being passed all over the country concerning the activities of workers on social media both inside and outside the workplace. I am located in Pennsylvania where you can be fired for good reason, bad reason or no reason at all if you have no employment contract and you are not being fired for a reason that is against public policy. For…

How to Have a Valentine's Party Without Hurting the Planet

If you’re the parent of a child in elementary school, you are likely very familiar with the concept of the “classroom party”.  As a mom of three, I spent many years helping to plan and organize these festive events for squirming, giggling kids.  And I loved every single minute of it!

And then after my kids…

Why I Would Be A Terrible Life Coach

Yesterday, I attended MomCom Austin. It is exactly what you think it is: it's a conference for moms.

I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm not one for big groups of people, particularly women, especially moms. But I've been struggling to meet people and I thought it would be nice to…

This is one fear I don't think I'll ever conquer

5:45am



That's what time it is right now and I'm as close to wide awake as I can get with less than an hour and a half of sleep. 



I love the weather.



Rain?



Love it!  Walking in it. Sitting on a porch watching it. The scent of it. Everything about it!



Snow?



As long as I don't have to go…

Be Silly

How many times have you heard a parent utter the phrase "stop acting silly" to her child? We may have done that ourselves knowingly or unknowingly because they are seemingly harmless words. I have, on a few rare occasions used a few variations of that phrase on my children too, especially when they are "out of control" in public...Read more here.

Am I Having a Miscarriage?

The next week passes rather quickly. In addition to the Pre-existing Conditional Insurance Plan, I decide to apply to Medicaid. Not sure if I’ll qualify, but it’s worth a try anyway. Since I’m still waiting on any insurance to take effect, I haven’t been to the doctor.

The first time it occurred I was at work and didn’t know what to think. I wasn’t sure what was happening, and it scared me. I was fine throughout the day. Then around 6 pm, it happens. As I’m walking around at work, I…

Hold up, wait a Minute!

Who said I had time for your foolishness? "Not I!”, said the girl who's moving and shaking and making things happen. Back up! Give me my space and let me breathe.  The last I checked, time is not stopping or slowing down for no one. One minute I was a feisty, the world can’t stop me now, twenty one year old; next…

Dreaming of sunshine

Yesterday  I wrote a piece on seasonal affective disorder. Writing that piece made me reflect on my first years as a transplant in New York.

Moving to New York was an exhilarating, pivotal episode in my life. One memory that sticks out to me on my first year as an official resident of NY is getting bundled up to watch the parade down 5th Avenue for St. Patrick’s Day. Who cared if I wasnt Irish, I was there to partake of the revelry and stand in awe of the new life ahead of me.…
