Today as I was eating breakfast I decided to try to finish my book. After I’d been sitting there for maybe 20 mintues reading, my son (who had a day off of school) looks at me and says, “You don’t have anything to do today?”
Well, child, guess what… I do. I have all this fake shopping that needs to be done. Ha!
Little does he know I have so many things on my to-do list that I keep leaving one thing halfway done to go start something else. I am in such a distracted mood today. Maybe it’s the upcoming 3-day weekend, or the fact it’s the official opening of all the beaches here, or the hot dogs I am most assuredly going to eat at Monday’s BBQ.
And no, I still haven’t finished my book. But I did do my yoga!

So remember that time I said yoga was most certainly, definitely, not for me? Well, it turns out I lied a little bit. I was feeling my life becoming super lazy-butt, and was at a loss of what to do. I … Continue reading →
Last week marked a wild transition from full-time-always-crazy work to full-time-always-crazy home with kids on spring break. As work-free as I thought I was going to be, it turned out not the case. But I didn’t have to go into the … Continue reading →
I’ve had about every work-mom position in my life. Part-time working mom, work-from-home working mom, full-time working mom, stay-at-home working mom, student + part-time single working mom, full-time single working mom, unemployed looking-for-work mom… (and just about as many child-care options to go … Continue reading →
I cannot go to Target without a walk through the clothing section. And yes, I frequently end up taking something home. Because why pay more for staple closet items like v-necks; and there is no easier way to try out … Continue reading →
Writing for a living has definitely given me plenty of “writers block” moments. Blogging, although giving an open forum to write anything I feel like, is also a great place to practice procrastinating. Sure, you don’t want to blog if you have nothing to … Continue reading →
Apparently when you are searching for those one-piece outfits that look like glorified pajamas, you cannot search for jumpers. Because jumpers are sweaters. What you actually want to search for is jumpsuits. (Not that I have issues calling jumpsuits jumpers … Continue reading →
