My cousin died. But please don't express your sympathies to me, I hadn't seen her in years and years. I'm still sad. But I'm more sad for her immediate family because they have to go through IT. Through the loss and the change of definition of what daily life entails. Through all that stuff that really, … Continue reading You Just Don’t Know What Tomorrow Brings
So I have quit my job several times but it never takes. The first time, I was offered part time instead. When I still found it hard to keep up with because we were moving, I quit again and it was suggested that I hang in there until after the move and see how I … Continue reading I Want To Quit My Job And Clip Coupons
I had to take a First Aid/CPR class at work, the other day. It would be safe to say that I didn't want to. Initially, that was just because I'm lazy. But, as it progressed, it was hitting a little too close to home. See, if you bring up anything related to the heart, I'm … Continue reading I Wanted To Save My Dad
Let me just start with saying, I love my children. We all know this. They are the best and make my days brighter and my heart full. But, seriously, what is with their inability/unwillingness to clean?? Well, not necessarily clean, but just pick up their stuff. Well, not necessarily just pick up their stuff, but … Continue reading Is There A Handbook To Get My Kids To Clean?

As my mom asked the girl her name and introduced us, I wanted to run and hide. But that girl ended … Continue reading Singing Is Embarrassing When They Hear You
I was talking to a mom of someone I knew in high school and she was telling me how her daughter was often made fun of in school. I was shocked. So shocked that I called a mutual friend and asked her if she had any idea. (She did not.) You see, this girl always seemed very confident … Continue reading Everybody Hurts
It's been an eventful bunch of months. I adjusted to working outside the home, weathered motherhood, and had countless moments of self reflection. Blah blah blah, I lived. I got wrapped up in it. This is just the obligatory explanation that I feel compelled to make after not blogging for so long. I (we) also … Continue reading What About My Son?
So, recently, a friend posted a Secret Sister invite on her facebook page. Like many others, I was enticed by the idea of 6-36 presents. I'm not gonna lie, I am pro-present. I absolutely love getting presents. Now to be fair, I also love giving presents so it's not that I'm selfish or anything like … Continue reading No Secret Sisters For Me!
I want to be happy. I want to feel fulfilled. I want to figure out what my passion is and follow it. But, I'm not. And, I haven't (yet). A couple of months ago, I started working. It's not because I wanted to. It's not because I thought I needed time away from my kids. But, I … Continue reading Hired For a Job That I’m Not Doing
I don't generally like change. Or change that doesn't involve chocolate or a new pet, anyway. But, the last couple of weeks have been full of change. After a lot of soul searching and discussing (some might say that I nagged), we made the decision to send William to a very small k12 private school. … Continue reading My Son Wasn’t Happy To Change Schools
