A Teacher’s Two Cents

September 20, 2011

As a teacher, I am asked for a ton of childrearing/teaching advice. I give it too. Strategies to increase math calculation skills? Check. Potty training? Check. But I always admit I am not a mom. While I can dispense the “perfect” advice, I have yet to be able to implement it. But I do have one piece of advice that […]

Full Time Mom

September 12, 2011

I know the day will come in the not too distant future when I am cooped up inside the house with sick kids and haven’t seen daylight in way too long and I will yearn for the chance to be back amongst the working folk. But today I’m too wrapped up in the thrill I have for being a stay […]

Face Lift

August 31, 2011

I got a face lift!!!! Well, not exactly, but my website got a face lift. What do you think? I’m spoiled because my wonderful husband, reference Adam’s Spell, actually enjoys building websites. And in case anyone was interested, he also does freelance work. Have I mentioned how much going down to one salary sucks, please reference Waxing My Wants Away […]

Joining finances and learning how the other person manages their finances can be a huge hurtle in a new marriage. Different people place different priorities for their resources.

Acceptance Comes From Within

August 9, 2011

I went to work with my husband all by myself. And while I was there I got a phone call from my mom’s store (I managed her store for three years). They had a question about an order I was working on. It was important I leave in a timely fashion because I had a meeting at work, CDW (my […]

Dear Adam,

July 19, 2011

I just got off the phone with you and you sounded so depressed. I spent the conversation babbling about the great day I had with the kids and the funny things they did. You were engaged, hanging on to every sentence. When we hung up, though, you sounded so sad. I can’t blame you because I would be worse if […]

As a working mom I felt the prejudice of stay at home moms that seemed to judge whether I was making the right choice for my family by working. I forgot that there would be a reverse bias when I crossed over. I always prided myself on being a business woman with confidence and intellect. I took pride in the […]

Saying Goodbye is Hard to Do

June 22, 2011

I’ve never been one for goodbyes. I prefer “see you later” or something more non-committal than an actual goodbye. I’m not exactly sure why I despise saying goodbye but I usually try to avoid saying goodbye at all costs. As my time at my job is winding down I’m faced with approaching those goodbyes. I visit offices weekly and it’s […]
