Summer Camp Is Just A Test Drive

I'm sitting at my kitchen table this morning in a total funk.  Something is just not right in my world.  My oldest is away at camp and I miss her terribly.  It's only been two nights and she'll return after two more.  I should be relieved... the other kids are getting along better, I'm less...

Was It Me?

With my oldest getting ready to start high school, I've been thinking a lot about when she was just starting out in Kindergarten.  It wasn't easy, but we made sure she (and the other two that would follow).  The first few days were a blur, a combination of the newness and excitement, and the fact...

Sleep Is My Nemesis

My husband has no idea how lucky he is. Not because he's married to me, but because he is what I like to call an "Easy Sleeper". He can sleep anytime, anywhere, anyhow. Camping in 100 degree heat in a sleeping bag in the rocky ground - he's asleep within minutes. Neighbor dog barks all... Continue Reading →

Letting The Sun Come Through

As the sun caught my eye through the kitchen window today, I heard a small voice in my head say "The sun is up and I am alive".  Seemed odd at the time, but it gave me something positive to contemplate during meditation this morning.  What a gift today is!  I should be paying attention...

The Great Procrastinator

  I am the Great Procrastinator! While I'm not proud to admit that procrastination is a huge issue for me, it does feel rather empowering to shout it (at least virtually) and own it.  As far back as I can remember, I waited until the absolute last minute to do everything.  For a while, it...

Mommy Issues

From the moment I found out I was pregnant with my first baby, I had some pretty clear "Mommy Goals". : Raise empowered, independent, resilient, happy, and empathetic children. Love them unconditionally. Always have an open line of communication. Don't turn into my own mother. Number four sounds awful doesn't it?  It feels so unnatural... Continue Reading →

Today, I Give Myself An “F”

I like to think that I am a good parent. Not AMAZING but definitely doing my best with the tools I've been given. Especially since I quit drinking. Today, I failed in a huge way. I am embarrassed by some of the words that came out of my mouth. It was not anything to be... Continue Reading →

Get Thee To A Gym…Pronto

I've written a bit about my battle with alcohol, but I don't often talk about how I replaced one addiction with a few more.  One being my phone.  I can scroll my way through social media and play mindless games like a real pro.  I'm working on this issue, but it takes a backseat to...
