I am exploring several theories as to why so many friends of mine have the summertime blues right now.



Is it because it is the beginning of August and all the stores have started their back-to-school sales already? I know this is really bothering my son, as he doesn't even want us to visit that section of…

Our Visit to Legoland CA

Our family recently visited Legoland CA in Carlsbad near San Diego for the first time and we had a great time.  Before going I had heard from a few people that it is a park geared for younger children and that you only need one day at the park.  My boys are 10, 8, 6 and 2 and all love Lego’s so I thought they would be the perfect age.  You can definitely see the park in one day if that is the only time you…

I know when summer is here it is easy to get caught up in vacation mode, relaxing, and spending more time with family and friends.  It is easy to see others posting on social media pictures of where they are visiting and it stirs you to want to go away too.  I want to encourage you to stick to your budget even though it is summer time. Stay on track with your financial goals if that…

Where to save money on your vacation

I had an amazing time with my family on vacation last week: We had periods of adventurous fun and some downtime to just read and relax. It was a mix of everything to appeal to everyone. Some of our time was spent on paid excursions, and I didn't wonder at any point if they were worth the money: They were all super fun and I loved doing them.…

All those vacation days...gone

I am fortunate enough to have an amazing group of people who report into me at work. But I am on their case right now: I want them to take some time off. I'm asking them to look at their calendars from now until the end of the year and plug in the days they want off. I am not worried about being understaffed over the holidays or about them taking days all at once - I am worried that they will not use their vacation days at…

Vacationing at home

My son wants to know when we are going on vacation again. It is a subject he is highly interested in as of late. It may be because we've had some really memorable ones as a family and he wants to recreate the adventure, but my guess is that he just wants a break from school.…

Stressing out right after your vacation

I think by now, most Americans realize they don't take enough vacation. There are plenty of stories out there telling us we don't use all our vacation time, and polls measuring how many people are going to take a vacation this year and even reminders that vacations actually boost…

It's March!

Hey ya'll!  For the next few weeks I'm going to take a little break from the whole step mother and depressing topics.  I kinda bummed myself out a little.  I've got to throw some excitement in here every once in  awhile!  

March is probably the best month there is!  What normal person has a favorite month?  Well everyone if they choose their birth month.  March just happens to be my birth month.  Along with my mother's as well.  I think that's the reason we don't see eye to eye on…

Working parents are suffering in silence

At 5 pm, I have been working for eight and a half hours. I probably don't even know what time it is. In fact, I am probably in a meeting, since I work for a bicoastal company and it is only 2 pm on the other coast. (That tends to be a popular meeting time.)



By 5:14, I am trying very hard to focus on whatever…

Doing nothing on a day off

I have a day off soon. I am not going on any trips or spending time with friends or traveling somewhere fun. I am not doing anything but sitting still, ignoring all chores, and enjoying the idea that no one needs me. And I am crazy excited about it.…

S'mores Recipe for Kids

Camping isn't on our list of trips for this year (maybe next year), but I still wanted to introduce my kids to one of the great camping experiences ever... S'mores! There's just something about the ooey, gooey, stickiness of the marshmallows and the sweet, smooth chocolate that is enough for me to deem camping as one adventure that everyone must try... at least once in their life. (Of course, there is the beauty of nature and all the creatures you may not normally see, but I'm speaking…

To the Parents of the Missing Boy:

toddler-390535_640

You don’t know me and I don’t know you, but yesterday, I was looking for your little boy.  We had been swimming at a hotel down the beach from yours when a security guard entered the pool and asked for all of the parent’s attention.  There was a little boy, only three years old in a bathing suit bottom without a shirt, who had wandered away on the beach.  My heart sank. We were to keep our eyes open.

The hair raised on my arms and on the back of my neck and I felt…

5 Tips for Caravanning with Young Kids

Having a successful caravan trip with young kids comes down to planning, every, single, time. Your planning and the kids involvement should begin well before you set off on the road. While planning your itinerary get the kids involved. Ask them what kinds of things they’d like to see and do and plan in accordance. Of course, you might have something even better in mind, but it will help your kids get excited about the trip and ease any anxiety they may be dealing with at the thought of…
