You Can’t Go Home

February 19, 2016

In the 50s, my mom grew up in a neighborhood that paralleled many communities in suburbia. The tides changed in their community in the late 60s/early 70s and everyone moved away. For a child who left for college, it was pretty traumatic not being able to actually come home. My mom and her peers from her community have felt an […]

I Resign!!!

January 27, 2016

I’m ruining my kids. There, I said it. For a million reasons, I am ruining my kids. The one I’m choosing to focus on right now is that I have resigned from teaching them to be self-sufficient. We are going backwards to the days of infancy and I’m doing everything for them. Why would anyone want to do everything for […]

You know those people who march outside of hotels, construction sites, restaurants, etc. with their large signs and the huge blow up rats? I want my sign, I want my blow up rat, I want to go on strike. I need the Union of Mommies to negotiate a better contract. I’m getting the short end of the stick. I get […]

My arch nemesis – FOOD!!!

February 26, 2014

I have a confession to make, I am a processed foods junkie. And much like most women, I have done my fair share of dieting over the years. In high school, I did the whole Weight Watchers thing – except I thought that I could fill my 18 points with chocolate chip cookies and Swedish Fish. And it actually worked! […]

Last night I did the unthinkable. I turned off the lights. Um…don’t I do that every night? Yeah, but I don’t usually do that when there’s a disaster of toys and unkempt kitchen everywhere. So either I’m totally exhausted, which I am, or have reached an all time low in the amount I can handle with my children. But somehow […]

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 […]

The Value of a Dollar

April 3, 2013

Drew has a constant NEED. He needs an unbelievable amount of sports jerseys. He’s not even particular. He’ll take any team and any player. They do need to have a number on the back, which frequently adds to the price tag of his NEED. We have recently started facilitating a “Responsibility Chart” which spells out his required tasks (make bed, […]

Constant State of Construction

March 19, 2013

My life is under construction. It’s an eighteen year, multifaceted job with several different rollouts. We are in the demolition phase. And it hurts…boy does it hurt. I’m told once they get to pour the concrete, the roads may get a little smoother. Right now, however, it is in an utter state of chaos. And although all that is true […]

Growing up, my house was quiet. I used to put on music, the tv and talk on the phone just to feel like there was action going on. It’s not that I couldn’t stand the quiet, I just craved noise. I would go over to friends’ houses that had siblings, people coming and going and be jealous. Be careful of […]
