At Long Last Sitting in the Front Seat

Someone might not be happy about me posting this pic on this blog. Someone might give me a look. Someone might roll her eyes. We’re very much in the teen years over here. Two teens in fact. Teens are the new toddlers. Teen are remarkable. Teens are frustrating. Teens are helpful around the house…except...

Doing Good As a Team #MembersUnite

Doing Good As a Team #MembersUnite

As a college student, I discovered the Jerry Lewis Telethon one Labor Day Weekend. I was new to the U.S. having recently moved from England to Pennsylvania for college. As a kid in England I watched TV, but I had never seen a televised program designed for the sole purpose of raising funds for...

2012: Resolutions and Then Some #Tots2Tweens

I don’t write down my resolutions. I’m not sure if I have ever written down a New Year’s Resolution. Maybe, years ago? Perhaps, I jotted something down on a scrap of paper? Did I write something on my calendar? In a day planner? Truth is that I never write anything down. As much as...

Remembering a Friend

I only knew Susan from her blog. By that I mean I didn’t meet her before I started writing my own blog. But, Susan was among the first group of local bloggers that I met. We have a vibrant and very supportive group here in D.C. Second to none. But, to say that Susan...

Retirement Is a Long Way Off…Or Is It?

December 13, 2011
By

As a 40-something, retirement seems far off. I’m not ready to retire. Heck. I’m barely back to work after some years off as a stay-at-home mom. Now that I have been back in the workforce for a couple of years, I suppose I should give retirement more thought and consideration. But isn’t planning for...

What Is Technology to You? #windowsphone

What Is Technology to You? #windowsphone

As a kid in England, technology meant nothing to me. I was as far away from being a tech geek as you could be. My neighbor was super cool as he had an Atari system. Even the little kid I babysat for had a simple computer through the TV. I remember a handful of...

Getting All MacGyver with It

September 14, 2011
By

I’m your man…uh…mom….I mean woman for the job. As a mom of 3, I entered the blogosphere late…very late. My youngest was already 5 years old. Can you say scramble? That’s right I had to scramble and race and forage for stuff to post about. 12-, 10-, and 5-year-olds are interesting and fascinating creatures...

Kindergarten, Preschool, Work… Where Were You? 9/11

September 11, 2011
By

It was an ordinary Tuesday morning. Nothing out of the ordinary… I woke up after my husband left for his teaching job at as local high school. Once up, I woke up my 5- and 3-year-olds for school. Breakfast, teeth brushing, picking out school clothes, arguing over why you can’t wear a tutu to school,...

Achieving Balance Naturally

August 3, 2011
By

I’m 46…I think. I tend not to think about my age. I do dwell on the passage of time, but not much. I get wrapped up in the fact that my oldest will go to college in a few short years. But for the most part I don’t worry about how old I look...

In Our Home Service Is a Family Affair — @VolunteerSpot Summer of Service

I have fond memories of going on retreat as a teen. My school would schedule several trips throughout the school year to a monastery a few hours’ drive from my home. The retreats were a way for us to get away for a few days to the quiet of the monastery. I enjoyed getting...
