Redefine Relaxing Vacation

August 20, 2012

This morning the alarm went off for the first time in nine days. It was a wake up call…vacation is over. Time to come back to reality. And even though we have been back for a couple of days, it has been slow in getting back into our normal life. After last year’s trip, one might think we didn’t stand […]

I’m in the thick of it…

August 9, 2012

I know vacations are worthwhile. It’s great to get away from the house, it’s nice to have a break from the routine and it’s enjoyable to be forced to have no distractions during family time. The pre-work, though, is enough to do you in! There are a variety of piles all over our house. There are the clothing piles that […]

Is a relaxing beach vaca possible?

August 8, 2012

Much like I explained yesterday, a year can make a big difference! Friday we leave for our second year going up to Michigan between school and camp. My very generous aunt and uncle give us their summer house as a getaway. And last year, (you can read about it here) it wasn’t quite the getaway I had expected. First of […]

Foo Fighters Meet Yoga

July 12, 2012

Today in yoga the teacher played a Foo Fighters song that I have always loved (Everlong) but an acoustic version that really made me think… “if everything could ever feel this real forever if anything could be this good again” Now bear in mind these words penetrated my mind after a grueling workout very close to the point of cool […]

A Single Gal Recharges by Rachel

May 1, 2012

Last week, the lovely ladies and I made our way up to Michigan for some classic R & R. In the hectic day-to-day, it is so easy to get caught up in deadlines, to-do lists, and I end up feeling life is the proverbial hamster wheel. However, after a (albeit short) wonderful weekend, I feel recharged. Glasses of wine lead […]

I’m obsessed

January 27, 2012

Anyone who has ever read this blog has probably gathered that I’m infrequently a “blah” kinda person. It’s a good thing as much as it is a bad thing. When I have a feeling, its usually a strong feeling. When I like something, I really like it. When I dislike something…you get the picture. It allows for me to live […]

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 […]

Win For Mommy!

September 23, 2011

Blogging is definitely therapy for me. Just unloading all the words alleviates some of the stress I go through. Yesterday could have been a very expensive therapy session. Rather I unloaded my frustrations on you, my readers. I sincerely appreciate all the people that reached out to me with kind words, suggestions and resources. When the first “ding” from my […]

One-way Ticket Please

September 15, 2011

Have you ever dreamt of running away from home? Have you ever fantasized about picking up and relocating to another place. Maybe it’s a different climate you are after. Perhaps you’d prefer a different atmosphere. Either way, it’s somewhere other than where you currently are. Last April we went on vacation to San Francisco and Sonoma. It made me really […]

Mission Fun

August 25, 2011

Believe it or not, I not only write a blog but I read blogs. I don’t just read a couple, I read dozens. Hours of my life go by catching up on strangers’ lives. I try to learn what brought them to blogging, what their angle is on blogging and how they got (or if they are) successful blogging. I […]
