Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm a SAHM with a bachelor's degree. I don't want to work, I'd rather stay home so I am not complaining about that. I do however, feel like I am losing my knowledge one day at a time. To counteract that I am posting about little bits of knowledge I am trying to relearn.
I have been blogging since...

Dancing With The (Who is That?) Stars

Posted on September 10, 2010 at 11:26am 0 Comments

Dancing With The Stars will see yet another season. Aren’t

we all getting a little sick of this show yet? I have to admit I have

seen episodes here and there, but have never watched a season in its

entirety. If you are having trouble counting how many seasons this

makes, that’s because you have now run out of fingers. Yes, that’s

right, this will make the 11th season.

Don’t worry, I won’t hold you in anticipation any longer. Here is your cast according…


Catholic Tomatoes

Posted on September 10, 2010 at 11:25am 0 Comments

I’ve been thinking a lot about religion lately. Having grown up in Massachusetts, most of my friends in school were “Catholic.” I give the quotations there because they said they were Catholic, but they were as Catholic as a tomato is fruity. What I mean is, they say they’re Catholic but they don’t smell or taste like a real Catholic would. I was always jealous of their First

Communions and Confirmations. It was like another birthday.…


“You’re Fired”

Posted on September 10, 2010 at 11:24am 0 Comments

“You’re Fired.” Besides Donald Trump and every angry boss in a

movie, who really says that? By the way, it may just be a rumor, but I

heard that The Donald tried to trademark the phrase, but that idea

didn’t go over too well. There are so many other ways to tell someone

they will not be working for you anymore and most people do not actually

choose “you’re fired.” Have you ever been told that? I didn’t think

so. So, if not many people are actually saying it, why is… Continue

Those Pesky Mosquito Bites!

Posted on September 10, 2010 at 11:23am 0 Comments

Mosquito Bites! As I sit here scratching mine, I’m wondering what

makes them so itchy? I know that this is something I have learned

before, but it’s obvious that it is something I must learn again. Some

say mosquito’s have been around for 30 million years. That sounds like

plenty of time to get their genetics perfected. In fact, there are over

2700 different mosquito species throughout the world (according to and they also describe, in detail,… Continue

Welcome to MBC Stephanie!
I completely agree with losing our knowledge-once we have kids I think our brains slowly leak from our ears. I look forward to reading your blog!
Have a beautiful weekend

Welcome to MBC, Stephanie. Don't worry, you will not lose your knowledge. My last child leaves for college next week and then I am going to start a new career. I think I know what it is going to be, just not 100% sure yet, lol. I started off my life after college as if I were going to be this big career woman. And, I was for quite awhile. But, I could not stand leaving my children, so I gave up the career. My husband and I started our own business so that we could control our time and lives and be with our children. It was a smart move by us! But, I do know I am not going to return to a life of living to work! I want to work to live, instead. And, I want to love my job!!!

I will check out your blog over the next few days. Enjoy your family life. It is what really matters! We have been fooled to think it is about having it all -- and having it all is not possible all at once! It is possible over a lifetime -- but not all at once.

I hope you find MBC helpful to you.
