The biggest challenge and struggle in my life right now is not letting my work mess with my head.
I am working full time and although the job in itself would not be that bad, the environment and people make it the wickedest experience. Quite often I ask myself it this all worth it?
Life has evolved in such a way that it’s become a chore. Is the purpose really to spend our life laboring away, (contributing to) producing a surplus of products/services…Continue

Exercising regularly was definitely high up on my list of goals when I got divorced. It was yet another way to get myself out of rock bottom. Before Hana was born, I went to the gym 4 or 5 days a…Continue

It doesn't feel like it’s been almost 4 years since I was divorced, but I do feel like I've come a long way. Working on remodeling my interior during my transition was outrageously more difficult than Eva 2.0—The Exterior.…Continue

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
A poem by the great Langston Hughes.…

This recent article on Babble Mom Crunch was most refreshing — and provided a jolly good laugh — for a work-at-home blogging mom like me. Why refreshing? Well, it’s been a beautiful albeit hard-to-define line of work! A lot of people ask me what I do for a living. Somehow, it’s been tricky to define what I do exactly, especially since a lot of people…Continue

It’s January 25, do you know where your resolution is?
Mine is happening right now as my little fingers fly (poke) over the keyboard of my hand-me-down laptop; Resolution 2012, more writing.
Only took 25 days to get crackin’.
Do you know that almost half of all Americans make a New Year’s Resolution…Continue

What’s a work-at-home mom got to look forward to in the new year? Isn’t life the same as last week (which was, incidentally, last year, too): We’re at home, working from the dining table (for some, in their pajamas)?
Well, if you’re a more-often-than-not-optimist like me, you’ll ring in the new year…Continue

Last week I called the instructor at the local Ropes Course. We were set to attend with our homeschool group in a few days, and I realized that although it may be interesting to watch the older kids climb, zip and whirl, it'd be more fun if my two oldest could participate fully.
The answer I got: The harnesses can be fit on very young children. It's more about their personal will and interest.
So, we woke early a few days later, tossed our picnic in the car, and drove as…

So, I took a training on time management last Friday, and I am just now getting to post about it. The training itself was enjoyable, and I'll tell you some of what I learned- but first - can someone please explain to me how I'm supposed to manage time that doesn't exist?
Maybe that's a bit dramatic, but it's really how I feel this week. Too many things on my plate, all of which seem pretty important. It stresses me out and makes me feel more disorganized than I already am.…

Argh! YOU DID WHAT?!
Yes. That's me on many an afternoon. Make that morning. OK, truth-be-told, it can happen at any moment. Today it was the crayon-covered rocker that did me in.
And despite the fact that children are not the behaviors they exhibit, I honestly have difficulty sorting the two when my impatient Aries-anger ignites.
Whew. Deep breath. Calm down. Re-focus. Now move forward.
Yes, having children who are ages 1, 3 and 5 can be challenging. But…

Top 10 Reasons Why People Don’t Reach Their Goals
1. Goals are not clearly defined. Knowing exactly where you are going and how you are going to get there will help you achieve success! In order to achieve your goals they must be clearly defined and written down. Make sure you are as specific as possible! Don’t write “eat healthier” write “replace my regular lunches with a salad.”
2. Lacking Focus. Posting your goals where you can see them every day helps you to…

So do you guys have any blogging goals? I mean do you set goals for yourself as a blogger and then try to reach them? Do you just blog for fun, or to relieve stress? Do you blog for work, are you a career blogger? Is that the real term?
I was just talking with my husband last night about how much this blog means to me and goals that I want to achieve. F.Y.I. I have a lot of them. I'll share a few of the "blog" ones with you.…

I think the last thing to go back into storage was the "Cookies for Santa" plate.
Tomorrow the kids go back to school, and I go back to work. Holidays are over, and reality returns. I'm not sure I'm ready. In fact, I have that unsettled, nervous feeling in my stomach - the one I used to get on Sunday nights when I knew I had a test Monday morning.
I don't have any exams tomorrow. I guess handling the morning routine will be a test in itself - seeing if I can get two sleepy kids…Continue
