Don’t you love a good personal reinvention story? They are always inspiring to me, because when we’re young, we think we’ve figured it all out. Until we realize that we haven’t. That usually doesn’t come until years of unsatisfying experiences in the job market. But, the courageous ones among us do reinvent themselves and sometimes do it through their…Continue

Many parents often wonder if they should drink alcohol in front of their children. If you do drink alcohol in your home, do you wait until your children are in bed or do you consume it in front of them? I personally feel that if you are going to drink in front of your children that you should consume it…Continue

Many of us probably remember the joy of having our very first car. Getting our driver’s license was a good feeling of control, the freedom of being behind the wheel without supervision was as exciting as it was scary!
It is a very exciting and scary time for your teen as well and you really need to consider what type of car you want them driving while they are so inexperienced. The additional expense of a new car probably doesn’t sound like a great idea right now so I wouldn’t advise…Continue

Writing can be one of the most solitary occupations. Many writers carve out time from busy schedules that often include family and job responsibilities. Setting the alarm early or staying up after everyone else is in dreamland are two ways to find ‘quiet’ time.
Even though most of us need to be ‘alone’ when we are creating, it is really important to be part of a community that can…Continue

It is fantastic to know that work and home are independent entities, so do your work at work. Work, also know as employment, is commonly defined as the state of having paid work, one's trade or profession. Work is a serious activity. Employers who are paying people to work, expect them to work. While it is typical for employees to spend a little work time goofing off or doing personal things, both these activities are frowned on my most employers. When the goofing off at work or spending…Continue

So there’s really no denying that my little man LOVES the water. Splashing in the lake, the pool or the bathtub, he will spend hours pretending he’s a fish. Or at least, that’s what I think he’s doing. So when some of my mommy friends were going to the local splash pad yesterday, we of course could NOT miss out on the fun! The water was a little cold, but the little guy had a blast. And even though he can’t tell me this yet, I know he can’t wait to go…Continue

Today is Friday – time for a children’s book and an activity to keep the kids happy and busy!
I found this book in a box at an open air town flea market when I was visiting my daughter and grandson in New Hampshire. I get into trouble at these places – how can you say no to a beautiful picture book for 25 cents? The seller wanted me to take the entire box of over a dozen hardcover…Continue

I decided that I wanted to think back over the past 4 years and come up with 27 things that I have learned about being a mom.
Some are silly, some are serious, and some just aren't right!
Why 27 you ask? Well, simply because today is my birthday and I am 27 years old! Makes total sense right?!?

It was one of those days that you start off wishing you could just stay in bed and sleep and skip the next couple of days because you KNOW they will be hellish. My car blew up the night before. The coolant emptied and I drove it while it was overheated. So it didn’t technically blow up like an explosion, but it may as well have because it was a super scary…Continue

Many mother’s typically lose a small amount of weight after having their baby. However, I often hear mom’s talk about losing the baby weight a few weeks after they have given birth. Rapid weight…Continue

I've been having a hard time lately with this whole growing up thing that my kids insist on doing. It's like every time I turn around, they're gaining an inch on me, wanting to run around town with their friends, and begging for a cell phone. Seriously, what is the rush already??!! I, for one, am not entirely ready to…Continue
