Vacation Blues

October 22, 2015

Vacation is hard. For those of you who have not vacationed in awhile, your first thought may be “cry me a river,” but I’m telling you that it’s not easy going on vacation. I’m speaking strictly of an actual vacation so let me differentiate to avoid confusion. A vacation is when you leave your home, do not practice any of […]

Lonely Girl

September 30, 2014

After all these months with Adam traveling pretty consistently, one would think that I’d get used to it. One would be wrong. The worst part of him traveling has to be the days before. The anticipation of him leaving is enough to do me in. It seems like the kids are extra hard in the days prior to his departure […]

Sunny Days Ahead

March 17, 2014

There is something that has been happening during a dual parenting situation, it’s almost too unheard of to even discuss. Shocking in fact. I’m finding myself actually enjoying my kids – gasp!!!!! I have blogged in many different ways describing the joys, the frustrations and everything in between but I’m not sure I’ve ever come right out and said it. […]

Such A Girl

February 27, 2014

I’m such a girl. I need constant appreciation and validation. I’m needy. These are all things I have fought. I wanted to believe that I was “better” than this but I was wrong. Maybe it’s the estrogen, my upbringing, etc. Whatever it is, it makes it hard for men (mainly my husband) who aren’t built that way. I guess it’s […]

Absence makes the heart grow…

February 24, 2014

We are going on the forth consecutive week with Adam traveling for work. The first two weeks I really put my best foot forward. The second week my parents were out of town too so I had to really give it everything I had if we were going to survive. By the time week number three rolled around, I was […]

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 […]

I am currently in the cruxes of the Jewish New Year, in between the actual New Year and day of atonement (a.k.a. the day I become the most miserable human being in the world because I am without food and COFFEE all day). So because of this, I got thinking about what are my sins and how I can improve […]

My wonderful, extremely missing in action these days since he took a job in Wisconsin, husband asked to golf on Saturday. On my day “off”???? The nerve… I expect evenings where I can jet from the family chaos and occasionally have a meal with other people where there are conversations and slow consumption of food. It’s not like this happens […]

Wedded Bliss??

August 21, 2013

I sometimes wonder why eight years ago today nobody stood up and said “I object.” Maybe they were distracted by the domino effect of fainters (three people fainted including the bride – doh!). Anyway, who “let” a twenty-four year old get married?!? I’d like to think we were mature beyond our years, although I think that is unlikely. Especially since […]

Parenting 101

August 6, 2013

There are many things I’ve learned since becoming a parent. Like clothes sizes (i.e. 3 months) don’t always correspond with the age of the child. To some major things that I never expected. 1. Discipline There are many gray areas when it comes to discipline. That isn’t my way of cheating the system, although I think parents sometimes feel this […]
