Spending Habits Teen through Working Girl through Mom

As a teen I loved shopping with my best friend. We ventured in to our city’s shopping district many, many weekends. We browsed. We tried on clothes. We looked at clothes that were way out of our budget. We laughed at clothes that we thought were ugly. My friend and I bought clothes that...

I Can See the Numbers on the Coffee Pot!

August 14, 2012
By

I remember it as if it was yesterday. This is one of those cliches. Probably a tad overused. But appropriate under certain circumstances. Seven years ago, I was sitting at my kitchen table. It was spring and I was wearing a worn denim shirt. Comfy clothes. I’d slept most of the afternoon and awoken...

Reclaiming My Office

Reclaiming My Office

December was a blur. So was January. No, I wasn’t overwhelmed by the holidays. Nor buried under a mound of Christmas wrapping paper. I am hazy about February and March as well. The holidays were long since over by March. So no holiday excuses apply. As I reflect back on the last four months,...

Family Fun: Going Home #sogoodsosweet

April 26, 2012
By

As many of you know, I write about family…a lot. I may not get in to specifics. Or details. Or the nitty gritty about our family, but as much as I can I write about our lives. Although, you would be hard pressed to know my children’s first names. You won’t see references to...

Cyberbullying in the Digital Age #Blue4Grace

April 20, 2012
By

If you read my blog, you will notice that I have several topics that I talk about over and over again. My blog evolved from a general catchall for anything to do with raising a kid, a preteen, and a teen when I first started to a destination spot for ways to seize with...

Explaining the Unexplainable

April 11, 2012
By

I was offline on Monday. Tired. Exhausted. Taking a break from the internet. After a week of kids off for Spring break, a child recovering from wisdom teeth surgery, and hours spent collating my end of the taxes, I was fit for nothing more than snoozing on Tuesday after putting the kids on the...

Commuting by the Numbers

Commuting by the Numbers

I was in the rat race. I’m still a worker bee now, but back then I was not only working but commuting over an hour to work. About 10 years ago, my commute took up two precious hours of my day. While I earn far less working from home, I DON’T miss commuting. If...

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

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...
