Dealing with Grief and a Four-Year-Old

I've had a rough week. A rough month really if you add in trying to adjust to my husband being deployed to Iraq and then the house slowly falling apart as the air conditioner goes out and mystery leak shows up in the garage closet. Then one minute you are trying to pick out a … Continue reading Dealing with Grief and a Four-Year-Old

What Happened to the Cereal Box Toy?

I got a little tingle of nostalgia this morning when I noticed our box of Froot Loops proclaimed it had a Spider-Man figure inside. Now that sugary morning cereal has reentered my life, I'd been wondering when the toys went away. I still recall the days of choosing my breakfast cereal based on what awesome … Continue reading What Happened to the Cereal Box Toy?

I Make Lists About Writing Lists

I am a list maker. It's the only way I can remember to get anything done. If you tell me something and you don't see me write it down or make a note in my phone, then it's not happening. Sometimes on my To-Do List is a note about making a new list. Once one … Continue reading I Make Lists About Writing Lists

National Dog Mom’s Day is Almost Here!

National Dog Mom's Day falls on May 11th this year. It's celebrated the second Saturday in May, usually the day before Mother's Day.

The Not-so-Baby Shark at Atlantic Beach

I love to walk over to the beach in the evenings, after most of the crowd has left and the sun is starting to go down. I usually find some sea glass and a shark tooth, if I'm lucky. Last night was a little different. I found more shark's teeth than ever, just this time … Continue reading The Not-so-Baby Shark at Atlantic Beach

Enjoying Life Offline

I haven't posted since last week so figured I'd pop on with a little update. I've just been enjoying life offline and soaking up some family time. I didn't plan ahead, so I didn't have anything scheduled, but I know the blog isn't going anywhere. That's the great thing about blogging...as long as you have … Continue reading Enjoying Life Offline

I Lost Two Days to a Migraine

Good morning world! It's good to be back again and rejoin the world of the living. I've spent two days hiding in a cool dark quiet cave, willing myself into a semi-comatose state to try and deal with the intense pain in my head. As migraines go, this one was quite a doozy. I really … Continue reading I Lost Two Days to a Migraine

The Newest Soccer Mom on the Block

I officially became a Soccer Mom last week! Do you think I need a minivan now, or will my SUV suffice? I'm pretty sure it has room for soccer balls, a portable chair that I still need to buy and a cooler that I may or may not fill with wine. I've been wanting to … Continue reading The Newest Soccer Mom on the Block

Endometriosis Awareness Week: When Your Cramps Are More Than Just Cramps

Endometriosis Awareness Week 2019 runs March 3 - March 9, and unfortunately it's a disease I'm all too aware of. I was diagnosed in my mid-30s, after visiting a fertility specialist when our efforts to start a family weren't working. Infertility is one of the possible side effects of endometriosis. I was just relieved that after … Continue reading Endometriosis Awareness Week: When Your Cramps Are More Than Just Cramps
