Adulting is Hard - Adult Reward Stickers

It's no secret that being a grown up is tough work. Once we graduate high school, the praise of doing the crap we're meant to do (school work, getting up and going to school, getting dressed, brushing our hair, acing a paper) ceases and we're all just expected to do these things because we're "adults". Well there's a new trend called "adulting" and I can't say that disagree with the consensus that adulting is hard.

When mom and dad are your roommates

I have returned to my Mother's nest twice in my life. The first time was right after college, when I stayed there for three months to search for my first job. The second time was when job situations caused me to live apart from my husband and I was pregnant and no one wanted me living on my own. I was fortunate that both times my Mom and Step-Dad were there to take me in and take care of me.…

EVERY STAY AT HOME MOM GETS ASKED THIS: “WAS YOUR COLLEGE DEGREE WORTH THE COST?”

I’ve been fortunate enough that my husband’s profession has provided me with the opportunity to stay home off and on over the years. Like many of you, I reached a point where I had to decide if it was worth it to go back to work (and by “reached a point” I mean every time I got pregnant).

What's better: The ACT or SAT?

Think back to a memorable Saturday morning: You wake up early, somewhat refreshed from a dodgy night's sleep. You eat a decent breakfast, despite the fact that your stomach is roiling, and then you head off to school to take your SATs. Because there is nothing better than to spend four hours of your Saturday taking a test that you believe will decide your entire future.…

Paying for your future philosophy major

In college I had a roommate that was a history major. I have nothing against history. History is important; we learn from our past; it's good to remember where you've come from. However, her goal in life was to get a job working within airport administration. If you are wondering how a degree in history relates to that goal, then you are not alone.…

Please Brand Me Now!!!

Branding.

Argh.  Sooo challenging...and so permanent.  It needs to be just right.

Identifying your "brand" is kind of like going to college, where the goal is trying to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life.  But at eighteen, who really knows THAT?

You have to pick a major but what are the odds that in a few years you'll even be interested in pursuing a career in the field?  Your scope of interests expands, you identify and refine your skill sets, you…

Footing the bill for college

Falling in love 101

When my son sees two people kissing, he often says, "Those two people are kissing and then they will go and get married." Evidently my sex talks with him have paid off. (Just kidding.) When I ask him about the leap from kissing to married, he shows me the various wedding pictures of my husband and I kissing right before we tied the…

React Mobile App Can Send Emergency Alerts at the Touch of a Button – Keeping You and Your Family Safe

Safety is one of my biggest concerns when it comes to going walking, going to an unfamiliar place, or spending time outdoors with my family, especially this time of year when it gets dark outside earlier in the evenings.  Having a cell phone is a great accessory but in the event of an emergency it is not always possible to dial 911 or reach…

Road Trip!

It was a simple quest.



Andrew and I were going to take a relatively quick 5 1/2 hour road trip to the Capital District so we could get India from college for the summer. 



But someone had decided her van wouldn't make the 30° grade of the Driveway From Hell over the winter and parked it. Not in the barn on the hill, where it would be protected. Nooo.  I parked her in the driveway and let her sit - under 3 feet of snow…

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…

College Planning- The Prerequisite Course

Every job has its parts that we could live without.  For me, there is a significantly large part of my job that I am not a fan of. I mean, I really, really don’t care for it. College counseling.  Its not for me and is by far, my biggest pet peeve.  Which is unfortunate, because it takes up a large chunk of my time I feel would be better spent doing other things.

Let me begin with an…

Finding Your Happy Place

So, today I'm beaming. Someone has nominated The Inklings of Life for the eCollegeFinder Top Parenting Blog award. This honor actually comes at an amazing time in my life, because I've been thinking of going back to college in the spring to pursue a paralegal degree. Funny how life works sometimes.



In my acceptance email, they asked me for a few words of advice for their student parents. Considering I've been giving thought myself to…

The Sanitary Faux Pas

 

In the spirit of sharing embarrassing moments, I thought I'd relive another little doozy with y'all. Cause, really, what good is a humiliating memory if you can't share it with others?  This one, however, was TRULY mortifying because it took place during a time in my life when I hadn't yet learned to laugh at myself.

 

This went down eons ago when I…

Save Money on Event Planning

Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that? Because we are human, and along with our humanity come life celebrations: baby showers, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, funerals, and the list goes on and on.
