Blogging Is Cheaper Than Therapy

30 days of blogging. This is what I have accomplished this month in addition to all the other things I do in my life. I went from the ultimate writers block to full speed ahead. I bet I could even go another month if I wanted to! If I wanted to… Part of me really […]

The Other Side Of The Desk

I approached the desk with a lot of hesitation. A nervous smile was planted on my face. Sitting down, the tiny desk didn’t faze me. That’s something I was very familiar with.  What I was not used to was the side I was sitting on. Today, I was sitting on the other side of the […]

Remembering Abraham

For many years, I worked at Staples. It was my first job and shhhhh… don’t tell my current bosses but probably my favorite. I loved working retail and doing different things. The best part was the people I worked with and the unique customers we came across. This blog post is dedicated to the memory […]

Glare Of The Holiday Lights

Before the turkey had even digested, holiday lights were twinkling in my neighborhood. There were new Santa blow ups and more candy cane lights than ever. No problem. It was a beautiful day so hubby went out to hang up our own lights. After being the last ones to put them up last year, our […]

Fur Baby Love

Growing up we were that family who would always pet sit the dogs but never had one of our own. I always wanted a dog. Now that I know what it is like to clean up after two little ones and a husband , that dream is far from happening anytime soon. After a couple […]

Undefined Moments

There are these moments in life that can be so simple yet matter the most. As you know, we live in North Carolina and the majority of our family lives in New York. For Thanksgiving, my parents came to visit us. It is always awesome when the visit. Hubby and I get breaks, extra sleep, […]

Giving Karma Thanks

Karma. The whole idea of what goes around, comes around. We use it to make sense of things that happen. Usually it’s the bad stuff. When something bad occurs, we wonder if it was because of something we did in a past life or if it was something someone did, we can’t wait for karma […]

A Case Of The Randoms

One of the best things about being a teacher is sharing some really memorable moments in my life. Children always get a kick out of the fact that teachers were once children too. During my first year of teaching, I was referencing Twinkies…you know the Hostess treat. At some point while I was speaking,  I […]

Racing Thoughts Of A Modern Day Mommy

Wake up after only a few hours of sleep. Make coffee. Feed kids. Forget coffee. Make breakfast for kids. Find coffee. Don’t drink coffee. Someone needs more milk. Steal five minutes to take a shower. Can’t find the coffee. Kids laughing. Kids fighting. WHERE IS THE DAMN COFFEE!?Diaper change. Everyone get dressed. Find my coffee. […]

Pass the Gravy (but not the turkey kind)

I proudly told my first boyfriend back in the day that I loved to eat Chef Boyardee raviolis. Wrong statement to make when you are talking to a 100% Italian. He was horrified to say the least and insisted I come over for some real cooking. So, I went over for Sunday dinner. While the […]
