Alone vs Lonely (Part II)

While writing "All Alone" earlier this week, my fingers actually kept tap-tap-tapping away. And I looked up, and the sun had not only set, it was pitch dark outside. And a whole story had poured out. The post was so long I had to chop it in half, wrap up my thoughts and finish it in this post.

These past few months I've been thinking a lot about what "loneliness" and "being alone" are. 'Tis typical for me every…

The “you won’t be able to do this anymore” list

“You won’t be able to do this anymore!”

This is what I always hear when people talk to brand new moms or mothers to be.

A very short list of the main topics?

Well…here it comes.

You will not:

- travel as much as you did before (you will…

Italy - Rome, Florence, Lucca, Pisa

Today Kelly's Korner is hosting a Show Us Your Life: Vacations link-up.  Upon seeing this, I got a bit bummed that I haven't taken a vacation in awhile and won't be doing so for at least a few months.  Then I realized I never posted any photos from our trip to Italy exactly one year ago! 

We didn't take as many photos as we wanted to.  We always just get so busy having fun and seeing the sights and forget to take the camera out.  These… Continue

How Disney Brings Out the Liar in Me

I was recently given an amazing opportunity from my friends at Disney Canada to attend the Disney Social Media Moms conference in Orlando. I jumped at the chance – by March, who doesn’t need to get a hit of that happy drug the Big Mouse deals out?

The added bonus was that this conference is a family getaway….well, for a family of four, anyway. Once I got a friend to agree to come…

24 Outfits with One Dress and One Pair of Shoes

I have been invited to a weekend away. My only fashion requirements are a bathing suit (yikes!), a bathing suit cover up (whew), a sundress for dinner out and a casual skirt for sightseeing. I pulled out all my clothing requirements with accessories and realized that I was going to need a bigger suitcase.

I resent having to pay to check luggage – and the wait to retrieve it at the carousel – and every other nickel and diming the airlines have had to resort to, especially when I’m just…

Not Your Mother's Ebay Auction


Well, by now, I’m sure that each of us is subscribed to at least a few of the discount shopping sites à la Ideeli, Gilt, RueLaLa, etc… And then the Deal-of-the-Day sites, à la Groupon. Will we ever buy retail again?

Of course, all of these shopping platforms have been born to the Web, which has made it all possible. The latest shopping discount model? Online auctions that combine auctions  with the…

Surrounded By Beauty

Follow my blog "Rub Some Dirt On It" at


I used to live in San Diego, California, quite possibly one of the most beautiful places in the world and without question the most beautiful place I have ever lived.  My life then was lazy and chaotic, rocking Uggs and flip flops, exploring mountains and deserts and beaches.  But the most central part of my casual life in SoCal…

Flying with kids- What goes around comes around

In the past week I have read a few stories about traveling with kids and the disparity between those who travel with them and those who don’t. Of course the latter group is highly against the former being anywhere near them when they're traveling, especially flying . We parents know that most kid-less travelers wish our families would take a kids-only airline somewhere or better yet, stick to the back of the plane with a sound proof partition around us. We get it. They’re looking for a…

Inconsiderate Fu*kers!

After my initial horrific solo mUm travel experience, I developed a strong 'fuck you' approach towards anyone who even dared look in my direction when Michael cried, however, on my recent international travels, again as solo mUm, my patience and language profanity ability were truly tested!

The story begins, again, as our 36-hour… Continue

A Letter From A Remarkable Cat

Dear Potential Servants,

I'm Dash - quite possibly the most remarkable, handsome and unusual cat that you're ever likely to have the privilege of meeting.

But I digress.

I'm writing this because mUm and Dad just confirmed that unless that whiney black fuzz ball… Continue

Traveling with special diets

I considered myself to be a pretty healthy eater until this past Tuesday when I attended a lecture called "Special Diets for Special Children." As if traveling and eating healthy wasn't hard enough, now I'm faced with traveling and supporting a special diet for my kids. Talk about pre-planning...

Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane...(

Yup, call me crazy but I did it. I booked myself a flight to the psych ward...well, not quite but.... I did do what some believe is the unthinkable. I booked myself and my two "toddler" daughters on a cross country (San Diego to Newark) trip for the holidays and am flying solo....meaning no hubs in sight.

TripIt App Review

I’ve been a Disney Passporter girl for at least a decade, faithfully purchasing a new guide book for each trip to get all the latest and greatest information, organize my plans and track our spending. But I hate, absolutely loathe carrying that guidebook around with me. As soon as I got my iPhone last year, I decided that I needed a way to put all that Itinerary information that I keep in my Passporter into the… Continue

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
