Today is my birthday. My 42nd year. I have always loved celebrating and enjoying all the fun that comes with the special day- the cake (caterpillar, of course!), the presents (new books and skincare goodies, woohoo!), and especially the notes and calls from those near and far, in distance and in time. Of course, getting… Continue reading Better than Ever
Last night I closed my eyes around 9:45. I blinked and now my phone reads 4:50 a.m. How on earth did that happen? Not to mention, that I got approximately 7 hours straight of decent sleep, so why do I still feel so exhausted? I turn 42 next month and for the last few years,… Continue reading Sleepless in Ohio
If I won $5... At this point, I would probably start perusing my ever-growing Amazon wishlist for something in line with this frugal budget, like a new hair accessory. Justin would go to Condado for tacos. If I won $100... At this point, I'm going to indulge in some little items that can add up… Continue reading Mega Millions has me Mega-DayDreaming!
I adore birthdays, especially my own. I have never been the person that says, "Oh, it's just another day..." (Looking at you, dad). I love the celebrations, the gifts, the desserts, the general attention for my special day. However, I was recently thinking about my upcoming day (April 7th, I like flowers and have an… Continue reading So THIS is middle age?
With all that is going on in our world today, finding the good in each day proves difficult for me on many days. I used to love sitting in the quiet early morning with my tea, watching Good Morning America and having a few minutes to myself before the rush of our days began. These… Continue reading Look on the Bright Side
This weekend could NOT be better, weather-wise! Sunny, mid-sixties, a slight breeze. It's almost like a fall temp. and I adore the fall. Which means I intend to spend the majority of the day outside again, just like we did yesterday. If you're into weekend vibes of getting stuff done and enjoying every second, might… Continue reading Listen up!
We (I) started this blog as a way to force myself to write regularly. And it's not like I don't enjoy it, but finding the time to ...sorry, I was called away by Justin to see some ridiculous moment on Tarek El Moussa's new TV show...another distraction! Oops, sorry again, Emerson just came in to… Continue reading Why I can’t get ANYTHING accomplished
Ugh...week 5 of our stay at home order in Ohio started this morning. I'm sure you can relate to my 'blah' feelings towards this new normal. At first it wasn't awful, we were all together and we were making it work and finding creative ways to stay busy, aside from our strange new work days.… Continue reading Combating Boredom: Part 1 of MANY
Like most everyone, this last week has been like something out of a Sci-Fi film. With the coronavirus rampant in our states and the attempt to quell sickness, many are getting creative to avoid cabin fever and keep their sanity. As a teacher with two little ones at home and a husband in an essential… Continue reading Stuck…
Photo by Binti Malu on Pexels.com This school year has been a struggle. Creating and feeling confident in my lesson plans, juggling kid extracurriculars, planning that once in a blue moon date with Justin, and just finding time to sit and not have a single thing to do seems impossible (it really is!). I won't… Continue reading Feeling Your Best
