What’s going on. Tuesday edition.

It’s cold. You guys knew that – and I promised I wouldn’t whine about it (I haven’t!). But this article giving tips to Floridians on how to deal with the frigidness made me giggle. For the record, I did go out this morning and no, I did NOT wear socks. Legwarmers: yes Socks: no I have always sucked at time management. I’m starting to think procrastination is just the way I’m meant to deal with my to do list. I’m …

Ode to 2013

Ode to 2013

Twenty-Thirteen was a good one. I’m going to be cliche and do a reflective post about it. Enjoy. p.s. When you click  play on the video below – don’t blink. It goes by fast. Like real life. I started thinking about it a few days before the New Year and I actually feel pretty damn good about it. Here are some of the goals I actually accomplished this year: We became financially solvent. Do you …

Happy Birthday to my Main Squeeze

Happy Birthday to my Main Squeeze

Yesterday was Christopher’s birthday. Since our little mini vacation a couple weeks back was intended to be a shared present for his birthday (and my Mom’s), a huge deal was not made on the actual day … but you know we had to make it special for him anyways. The kids helped with this awesome poster I threw together for a ‘birthday banner’. It’s a lot of fun making your kids create letters with their …

Mini Vacation Magic

Mini Vacation Magic

Last week we let the kids’ play hooky (a little) and take 2 days off school for a mini vacation to the other side (east coast) of our sunshine state. We had a wonderful time & only wished we could stay forever. A couple things noted: My kids do this thing where they control the weather. They can make it rain, windy, sunny, etc. The day we left for our hotel, I had a class …

Watermelon Cleanse-slash-Challenge

Watermelon Cleanse-slash-Challenge

I considered myself a fairly healthy person. I eat healthy, I think. On a range from 0 to 10 (zero being McDonalds every day, 10 being organic raw vegan diet), I’d rate myself a 7. I exercise regularly. I don’t smoke. I don’t do drugs. Yet, I have always struggled with anxiety. And lately, more days than not I wake up feeling less than refreshed. Okay – a lot less than refreshed. I’m sleepy, sometimes …

Summer 2013 Wrap Up: Part III

Summer 2013 Wrap Up: Part III

This is the end of my Summer Wrap Up Posts – the third in the trilogy. … While I am always so sad to see the summer come to an end, now that we’ve been at this whole school thing for 3 weeks now, the initial somber shock has started to dissipate & we are settling into our new hectic schedule. Don’t get me wrong, there are still some kinks to work out, but it’s not so …

Summer 2013 Wrap Up: Part II

Summer 2013 Wrap Up: Part II

The big highlight of every summer for the kids (and me!) is going to ‘Mimi’s Beach House’! Every summer since I can remember (save 1 or 2 exceptions) my family has taken a week to vacation in the Outer Banks, North Carolina (OBX – as the locals call it). This year was no exception & while things were a bit different since we rented 3 ‘cottages’ in lieu of one gigantic house, I think the …

Summer 2013 Wrap Up: Part I

Summer 2013 Wrap Up: Part I

Holy Shrimp. Summer is over.  <insert sad face> My excuse for not posting in a blogger’s eternity? I developed an addiction to Supernatural. You know, the TV show… Christopher and I watched the first episode on Netflix back at the end of June (68 days ago) and as of last night, we’ve watched 79 episodes. So – yea. That’s pretty much been my life after kids go to bed since then. I know – summer’s …

I was brave.

I was brave.

Lately I’ve been a slightly braver version of me. I’m not questioning how I got here, I’m not even going to reflect on what triggered the extra courage.  I’m just going to celebrate it. Example #1: See that fuzzy spider up there. I caught it, I looked at it. I even lifted up the glass to take a clear picture of it. I didn’t scream. And I set it free in our backyard. Example #2: …
