Okay, I'm been MIA from my blog. I hope it isn't a case of outta site outta mind with those of you and are following me. I have an excuse though, really. My family has been living out of our suitcases for the past month while we were taking a road trip to our new home. It was a long road trip with stops at both of our families. Continue

There is something elemental about a pedicure. Not the neon bright colors that often adorn the toenails, nor the callus grater they use to scrub the skin to baby-butt soft, it’s about touch. Pedicures are about making a human connection. That and the opportunity to have your toes look like a traffic… Continue

Each quarter I think it's a good idea to check out my schedules and see if I need to make changes. School is back on the routine and my nephews had to get picked up from school this month. So October is really going to look different. So lets get started.
I want to make time for all of you here at… Continue

I have so many friends who have the latest smartphone – with all its fancy apps and productivity tools – yet, they still prefer to carry the good old-fashioned paper agenda.
I get it, actually. There is something very rewarding about jotting down do-not-forget’s and to-do’s on paper. And there is an immediate, tactile satisfaction too in scratching off that “done” item and… Continue

What would you do if you weren’t too busy?
If you had a free hour… or even a free day, what would you do with it? You may imagine that you’d read all the books and magazines that have been collecting dust in your home. Or maybe you’d rent the entire season of your favorite show from Netflix and watch nine episodes in a row. Or maybe… Continue

Who decided that the weekend should only be two days long? Lately it just hasn't been enough for me. I posted the title of this post as my facebook status last night, and I got about 20 "likes". It seems I'm not the only one with this unrealistic wish.
This past weekend my best friend got married and I was in the wedding party. While I was thrilled to be a bridesmaid (first time!), I was kind of bummed when it was Sunday afternoon and I was getting ready for the workweek... I… Continue

I have a number of working mothers in my marketing department and several have arranged flexible work schedules to accommodate their changing work/life demands. Flexible work schedules are becoming much more common as employers recognize it as valuable tool for retaining their top talent and promoting work/life balance. In my department we have a number of different kinds of…

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? Continue
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.…

Sixteen-year old Anna Sullivan is an outsider at her high school. Quiet and shy, as well as cursed with a tortuous family past, she can’t hope to attract the attention of popular Tyler Marsh, for whom she has a crush. How could a girl like her, a girl with a low social status, an alcoholic father and a mother who abandoned her, dare hope…

I used to be a madwoman on the weekends. Dr. D. avoided me Saturday mornings as I rode around on my broom frantically trying to cram in as many tasks before noon as possible. As a busy working mother, I found that my weekends were consumed with catching up on all of the stuff I couldn't get done during the week -- laundry, cooking, errands, you name it. Even before… Continue
