Flying Solo

February 12, 2014

I miss my husband. Period. I want him to come home. End of story. But… Things are going pretty darn well. Of course I just jinxed myself and I’m sure the shit will hit the fan now. As I am about to eat my words, things have been going rather smoothly in his absence. We eat dinner when it naturally […]

There must be something about my cool, calm and collected demeanor that Adam must feel I have things under control or something. Not! The fact that he comes home to a disheveled, stressed, frantic wife who throws her children at him doesn’t seem to raise any flags. Otherwise he would not even consider leaving this state yet again (that would […]

In a far away, distant world I was a pharmaceutical rep. A working parent’s life is far from slow paced, but the job itself at times could be. Wait an hour to see a doc, thirty minutes until a lunch starts, etc. Now nothing about my life is slow paced. I’m either running late to something or trying to squeeze […]

Lowdown on Jockey

July 19, 2013

Speaking of BOOBS (how is it ever appropriate that I start a blog this way?!?!), Wednesday night I went on my Jockey (#jockeybra) excursion. Previous to Jockey (#jockeybra) contacting me, I thought of Jockey as an undershirt store that was at outlet malls. So why would they contact me?!?! Jockey (#jockeybra) is launching this new bra system. If you are […]

You know how you never really feel like a grown up? Like two mortgages, two cars, three children should be a pretty good sign that I’m grown up but I still keep expecting someone to march through the front door and override me (and no I’m not talking about what my five year old does everyday). Anyway, I feel just […]

She Works Hard…not for the money

May 22, 2013

Today someone mentioned to me about a position, a good position, available at her company. For a second, a solid second, I got excited at the prospect of re-entering the workforce. The thought of dressing up, engaging in adult conversation and having something to talk about besides nursing, day camp or kindergarten enrichment really inspired me. How will I ever […]

My Jobs

May 15, 2013

One week after my sixteenth birthday, I drove myself over to Outback Steakhouse and applied to be a hostess. It was my first job ever, minus camp counseling, and I continued there on and off for four years. It took me awhile to get the hang of things – understanding how to keep the restaurant equally weighted by customers, making […]

The Return of Snow Days

May 14, 2013

The worst part of Adam working so close to home, besides the difficulty in maintaining a “relationship” with the gardener ;), was that he never could have a snow day. You may remember how challenging I found our recent day stranded at home due to the snow. Adam is leaving his employment of seventeen years! He was contacted by a […]

We survived another week!

March 1, 2013

Two years ago when I was just learning what life was like balancing two children and getting back to working full time, I felt a huge weight lift when we made it through the week to Friday. Although I would like to think it was because it meant that I could spend two consecutive days with my kids, it really […]

The Land Before Time

January 21, 2013

Since my “maternity leave” from being a stay at home mom has been behind me with Adam going back to work, I find myself slightly wishing away these initial weeks of Noah’s life. In my sleep deprived haze, I am secretly wishing him to be four or five months old so that we can be more in a rhythm. You […]
