Embrace the Mantra

January 23, 2012

I’ve been raised with this impending doom feeling hanging over my head. My mom is not to blame for this mentality. It’s more like a cultural thing. Maybe its from being a part of a religion that was repeatedly persecuted for their beliefs. Maybe somehow being neurotic is an inheritable trait. Either way I come from long lineage of insane […]

Survivor

January 20, 2012

It’s that lovely time of year where people are starting to get out of dodge. It is frigid one moment or snowy and slushy the next. Either way, it’s miserable. And frankly the weather is just the least of it. I think I may need a vacation from my children. Surprisingly Drew has been doing a little better. All it […]

One of the Big Boys

January 17, 2012

There’s a time in every Mother’s life where they learn that they have to let go and let their children figure it out for themselves. It sometimes happens 12 weeks after having the baby, the broken hearted farewell back to work. Or it happens when you finally leave your kid overnight for the first time. Or it happens when its […]

My Footprint

January 16, 2012

***Archive from January 19, 2011 Thanks to Martin Luther King Jr. I had the day off from work. In memorializing this extraordinary person, that continuously took harder routes in order to make a point or help rally the world to look at situations differently, I couldn’t help reflecting. It makes you really feel insignificant when you look at a person […]

Diva Style

January 13, 2012

Those of us who haven’t reached celebrity status remind ourselves that even celebrities are human. They put one leg in their pants at a time. Sure they are designer $500 pants but they are just like us. There are sections of gossip magazines showing celebrities being just like us. They go grocery shopping, take their kids to the park, and […]

I’m Lovin’ It!

January 12, 2012

When we first moved into our house, there was an insurmountable amount of projects. And with the completion of each project, our house became more comfortable for us. It started with unpacking – once our bedroom was unpacked it was much better, then the bathroom and kitchen. This house that I dreaded moving into because of the state it was […]

Monster Man

January 11, 2012

Since we have been back from winter break, I have been so strict. Frankly, I have made Stalin look like a nice flexible guy. I have been so strict that I barely have even enjoyed my eldest child. Every moment of conversation dedicated to good behavior mantras…keep your hands on your own body, listen to teachers, use nice words, etc […]

Is our schedule our downfall?

January 9, 2012

I’m a routine kinda girl. I like a schedule. Even if life doesn’t encourage a particular schedule I find myself naturally falling into one. That aspect of my personality, coupled with an inability to properly sit still, makes for a very active life. Everything I’ve always read has said that kids thrive in a structured routine life. And definitely having […]

Marriage Boredom

January 4, 2012

Do you ever get bored of being married? My single friends are going to hate this blog like I hate it when they say that they are bored nights and weekends because they have too much downtime. Do you ever get bored of being married? I don’t mean bored of your husband because that’s a problem that you need to […]

What’s inner peace?

January 3, 2012

Last week I celebrated the ten year anniversary of my 21st birthday. This anniversary coupled with the conclusion of 2011, really got me thinking about where I’ve been, what I’ve done and where I’m going. I’ve only been able to legally drink for ten years, vote for thirteen, drive for fifteen. Yet what I’ve accomplished, created, in those thirty one […]
