Daydream Believer

December 27, 2011

It was bound to happen. I have been on “go” mode for quite some time now. Between the packing, unpacking, repacking, Disney and Chanukah, there hasn’t been a second of downtime. Fortunately now is probably the best time for my system to say enoughs enough, but it doesn’t make it any easier. I’m sick. It’s not really THAT bad, I’ve […]

Things I learned on our trip to Disney…

December 22, 2011

1. A single trip can be the most fun, the most stressful and the most exhausting all in one. 2. A kid in costume always looks cute, unless they are assaulting you. 3. Family pictures are near impossible, even in Disney World. 4. I don’t need many excuses to dress Gabby as a Princess, and Disney seems like as good […]

Birthday Blues

December 21, 2011

Every year I dread my birthday. It’s not an age thing, although I’m not pleased about that. It’s more a time thing. My birthday is sandwiched between Christmas and New Years. It’s really the worst time to have a birthday. For the last twelve years, Adam has consistently made my birthday wonderful. He has given me countless amazing presents, thrown […]

Winter Break

December 20, 2011

Oh winter break, how our love affair is over. I spent so much of my life loving winter break. Who doesn’t love time off of school. When you have kids, however, its a whole new ballgame. Without school to structure our days and the insane crowds at every kid friendly location, I could go crazy keeping these rugrats occupied. Of […]

I NEED it!!!!

December 16, 2011

I try so hard to keep my greed and financial focus in check but I’m failing miserably. For so long I thought having a single family house was all I needed in life. That having a home for my kids to run around in would answer all my problems. I have learned that its never that easy. Of course I […]

King of Spoiled

December 14, 2011

One big present or eight little presents? For the majority of my childhood, I received eight presents for Chanukah (one gift per night). Of course the eight gifts weren’t huge – some were things like new pajamas, others were fun earrings or maybe even a book. My mom always made sure I had a gift each night to open. I […]

Bumpy Ride

December 12, 2011

There has been a whole heck of a lot of packing going on in the last few weeks. And with all the packing I’ve done, I decided that packing for a trip has got to be the worst! Don’t get me wrong, packing glasses and weird shaped objects in such a way that nothing breaks is no day in the […]

I’m Sorry

December 9, 2011

Recently I read an article explaining that my former employer will be laying off 25% of their employees, most of them coming from sales (which is where I was). One nasty evening last February when I was whining about my ongoing woes of being a working mother, Adam told me he thought I should quit my job. At first I […]

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas

December 8, 2011

I, much like most people, love the holiday season. The lights sparkling along streets and shopping centers, the buzz of people coming and going, the joyful upbeat songs in stores, the whole thing is so uplifting. Drew, being three, is finally starting to pick up on the season. For the first time I am confronted with what Christmas means to […]

Time Machine Wanted

December 7, 2011

Yesterday I braved the mall. I figured that the festiveness would be a nice change from the world of home improvement. I went to my childhood mall, the mall where I’ve been hanging out at for many years. It’s easy, I know it like the back of my hand and I could get all my errands done there. While I […]
