I know it is Spring: My car is covered in hyper-yellow pollen and my son and I have started to take our allergy medicine more seriously than in the other months. I used to think that he wasn't going to develop allergies, but a quick glance at his puffy eyes and runny nose has me breaking out the children's medicine so he can dry up and get back to bike rides.…Continue

Have you been thinking about changing some habits but just can't seem to get started or when you start you can't stick to the new routines? Are you feeling like these are just things you are going to have to live with? I have been there and I can say that with some focus and mindful choices all is not lost.

I love my Netflix,…Continue

But that's a topic for another day.
This is just about planning YOURSELF.
Yes, that's a thing.

You have no idea how high up the platform is, if it is the 1-meter, 5-meter or the 10-meter platform. You have no idea if there is water in…Continue

Let’s be honest – households are not that easy to maintain. It does not matter whether you have a big or small family, there are always things that get in your way and prevent you from enjoying the moment.

No kids. And it was glorious.…Continue
