Preparing for Seasonal Allergies with the Children’s Claritin Mom Crew

Making the Best of It…Always

June 18, 2013
By

I’m a “make the best of it” type of person. In only the most dire circumstances do I allow myself to wallow. When I hit a rough patch I take a deep breath or two or three breaths and make the best of it. Perhaps it’s because I am English and grew up dealing...

Sponsored: Planning Activities for Summer @Kelloggs Frosted Mini Wheats

This is a sponsored post, though all opinions are my own. I only need one word to describe the school year. Busy. BUSY. Very busy. Three children in three schools. Two with school bus service.

People Are Jerks

I’m a collector. Not of shoes or ornaments or paintings. I’m a collector of memorabilia. I scrapbook…when I have time. I frame school photos. I keep programs from recitals. I collect car magnets. I love my magnets as they tell a bit about my family. If I knew where to buy the “family” window...

Quadriceps Tendinopathy…Don’t Worry I’ve Never Heard of It Either

Have I mentioned that I have a gammy knee? I’m quite gimpy. I can’t straighten it at all. I cannot remember injuring my knee. Just noticed one day last week that I couldn’t fully straighten my knee. After 2 days of full-on limping and a week of hobbling, I saw my doctor on Thursday...

This a sponsored post through a SocialMoms.com and Clorox blogging program. Is this a familiar scenario to you? You walk through the kitchen, or perhaps the kids’ bathroom.

Musings from Me Spring and Summer Gift Guide: Carmex Healing Cream and Carmex Hydrating Lotion #skincare #carmex

April 9, 2013

The car temperature display showed 47 degrees this morning. Granted it was 6:45 a.m. But it`s April 8. Isn’t it supposed to be spring? Not according to the temperature gauge. This winter has to go down as one of the most varied on record. One or two snowfalls that deposited a measly 3 inches...

Social Media Moms Doing Social Good #JerseyLove

Last October we pressed pause. Briefly. I knew that something awful was coming. Not a family issue or anything to do with jobs, but a change was coming. The second to last week of that month we braced. We prepped for a weather issue of unknown proportions. I’m not trying to be dramatic. Not...
