Early Empty Nest Syndome

I've spent more than half of my life taking care of my kids.  I've been "Mom" for a very long time.  Taking on "Mom" duties is where I've spent most, if…

Things I've Learned This Week

When Sandy gives you rain...

Hurricane Sandy left us cold and wet on Halloween. Normally we would hold Trunk or Treat in our church parking lot but the storm made us make some changes to our tradition.  Because we have a large lobby and gym, our leader - Fred - decided we would be holding what…

Slacker Volunteer

I took on a volunteer position with one of my kids' schools this year and have been doing a pretty good job (if I say so myself).

Then I got sick. That was three weeks ago and I'm just now working on getting rid of my second (or is this one my third?) sickness. I hesitate to say "cold" too loudly because if it hears me, it might come running and lick me on the mouth. Again.

My students are the best!

It's been a while, and this week has been packed. I work at a boarding school for underprivileged kids and every year we have "Creativity Week" where teachers split up into groups with students to work on projects. The students and teachers come up with ideas for the projects and then get to pick which they want to participate in. It's a great week where we get away from textbooks and homework and have FUN! My group is doing "Pamper Day". We are volunteering at a homeless shelter giving the… Continue

Learning to Pick My Battles

Often, I share about my grandfather (Daddy) and the love he showed his grandchildren. He really was a good man. He was not perfect by any means but he did not waiver on things that were out of sync with doing what was right when no one was around to see. One of his favorite sayings was “fair is fair”. Those words were usually followed up by “ball or strike”. One day, I am going to write a book about his poetic sayings.

Once, I accompanied my grandfather to a meeting held at our… Continue

Volunteer stressed? How to say no.

We have all be there before. Someone asks us to volunteer for something that we have no time to do or have no knowledge about but, we say yes anyway. PTA's are notorious for this. Trust me, I know. They never lose a phone number.

The problems begin when something has to give because the day is only 24 hours long. Either your family gets neglected and you hear about it or you do a crappy job and everyone else thinks you're incompetent.

What do you… Continue

I receive emails every day from bloggers and folks who’ve read my book, Mommy I'm Still in Here.

Two stand out. One asked:

“…how much money do you make...blogging, writing, authoring a book, speaking and advocating for the mentally… Continue
