Mash-Up: Fictional Career Women on TV

Some of my favorite television shows are those set in the workplace.  I love getting a sneak peek into worlds I haven’t experienced. And, since I haven’t worked regularly in an office for many years, I’m fascinated by the dynamics between the characters.  Now, I know this is fiction. A lawyer or editor on a TV show is going to be exaggerated, dramatized, too snarky or silly or just plain scary (like Glenn Close’s character on Damage). We are looking for entertainment…

Today

Today I am a freaking rock star! Today I am not only surviving my husband's deployment to Afghanistan, I am kicking some deployment a$$! Today I am mom to my 2 and 3-year-old kiddos, and I am Detective to nearly everyone else. I am also covered in buggers from a sick little one!



My husband, CJ, is a Black Hawk pilot in the National Guard, and he has just begun what will be around a 9 month deployment. That does not include all of the pre deployment crap he did before. Basically he… Continue

All I want for Christmas is a can opener that doesn't SUCK!

Well, that's not all I want of course, but after months or probably years of replacing the crappy can openers I have bought I figured I'll vent my frustrations on my blog!



You know how you kind of splurge on household goods when you buy your first house or apartment? Well, that's what we did. We spent $30 on an electric can opener which was pretty…

Juggling the School Holiday

I cannot be the only one...who, as a working mama, associates school holidays with a mad scramble to find someone to watch their child; making phone calls calling in favors, while dropping discreet reminders of something you did for that person in the recent past. Harboring hopes that the person you decide to ask will offer their assistance before you have to resort to begging and making future promises of your services when needed.…

My Breastfeeding Journey After I Returned to Work After My Youngest Son Was Born – Breastfeeding and Working Moms

I was bummed with the thought of having to return to work after I had my baby.  Due to the circumstances, I was unable to stay at home with my baby after my maternity leave was over.  I remember counting down the days until I returned and I felt a deepening sadness overwhelm me.  Once, I returned to work…

More or Less?

The biggest challenge and struggle in my life right now is not letting my work mess with my head.

I am working full time and although the job in itself would not be that bad, the environment and people make it the wickedest experience. Quite often I ask myself it this all worth it?

Life has evolved in such a way that it’s become a chore. Is the purpose really to spend our life laboring away, (contributing to) producing a surplus of products/services…

Making Fitness Fit

Exercising regularly was definitely high up on my list of goals when I got divorced. It was yet another way to get myself out of rock bottom. Before Hana was born, I went to the gym 4 or 5 days a…

Yoga Bitches

I wrote about the experience I have had dealing with insecurities at my Yoga Class. Maybe there is something to be learned about never comparing ourselves to others and measuring our best against ourselves and no one else!

What are your thoughts on this? Have you had any experiences simular to this? I think it keeps a lot of…

Stef G. ~ One Inspiring WAHM

Work-at-home mothers do not equate to being isolated. Well, slightly yes :)

But being able to connect with people is still very possible. There are the various social networking sites and messengers providing voice, chat and video connections. All of these, I have utilized when I started working from home.

So aside from my current friends, I have been able to gain…

Travails of a work-from-home mom

Yes, being a work-from-home mom is not for the faint-hearted. And I’m not even getting started on the bad days when schools are shut, or the children fall ill or the help mysteriously disappear to their gaons (villages) for vague, unexplained reasons. So the next time, someone you know tells you she’s a work-from-home mom, give her an encouraging pat on the back. Even better, take her out for coffee or offer to watch her kids while she takes a luxurious ten minute shower. Trust me,…

Life with 5 kids is truly a joy and a whole lot of work

Really glad it's Monday after a crazy weekend of non-stop kid activities and sports.  Even though I'm working, I'm actually sitting down as opposed to any given day on the weekend.  Read more about it on my blog...Room for One More

Blood is Thicker than Water

Yesterday I shared with you my Child Care Woes.  The day care we use will be closed until August 13th for a suspected mold they found in one of the rooms.  On one hand I am happy they take any concerns like this seriously and promptly.  On the other hand I have been worried that I wouldn't be able to find child care for the days I work.  Right now we do not live close to family or friends.  I…

Pump it Up! - Working Pumping Mom

Yeah, pump it up!  If you're a child of the 80's like me (yes I'm a nerd, and a music nerd)- than this might be the first song that comes to mind and it's totally okay if you sing along:

http://youtu.be/0HtyF0jux2Q

But I wasn't really talking about that type of pumping it up- I'm talking about the working mom! The mom who's gotta nurse her baby even though she works 8-5, kind of pump-it-up.  If you don't nurse, or have boobs, you can…

"Hunt"ing for Camp Runamuk fun!

Last Friday was the last day of Camp Runamuk (the affectionate name we call life at my house when the kids are off school and fun is involved) and I decided to host the First Annual Dugdale Trifecta Easter Egg Hunt.



Here’s what you get when you have 4 mommies + 14 kids + 225 eggs + 12 tons of sugar =



1)      Sometimes even the snails want some chocolate!  The eggs had been out for literally 10 minutes, and we had an attempted robber!
2)      If…

"How many of these kids are actually yours?!"

. . . was the question from the Dish Network installer at my house today as we were entertaining 14 yes, I said FOURTEEN, children.

Today we had Camp Runamuk, Day 2 – Gettin’ Dirty.  We made “mud” cupcakes, bird houses, paper butterflies and mommy made a sad attempt at a cardboard boomerang . . .

. . . and here’s what we learned:

1)      Bribing the children with Fun Dip for breakfast will ensure that they get their rooms clean in no…

"Are you watching these children?!"

. . . was the question from the very irritated and judgmental man who almost ran my children over in the Target parking lot!  “YEEEEEEEESSSS!” was my defensive and embarrassed response. 

It’s Spring Break and my “oh sh*t, I’m a stay at home mommy” hives have kicked in.  I have to entertain the children all day and maintain some semblance of my sanity.  It’s gonna be a long week.  But, on the bright side, Camp Runamuk is in full swing.

Here’s what I learned about…
