One of Mama Kat‘s prompts this week for her Writer’s Workshop is: 2.) Write a blog post inspired by the word: goals. I have five goals that I’m working on right now – some quicker than others and none of them terribly quickly at all, to be honest. We’ve been wading in deep waters this month as we continue to adjust to all the new. I … Continue reading 5 Goals for the Fall Season
As a reward for making good progress with potty training, I took the kids to the bookstore this week to get BB a new book (::does happy dance::). Side note: I LOVE that the prospect of a new book excites my children as much as it does me. If there was any question about whether these kids take after their parents, this fact firmly settles … Continue reading The girl I used to be.

This week’s Tuesday10 theme is Professions I Wish I Had. Being a SAHM this is something I actually think about often. If I wasn’t doing this wonderful, amazing, mothering thing, what would I be doing with my life? Surely I’d have some traditional type job in which I am compensated for my time and energy with something other than sticky kisses and manic hugs. When I … Continue reading Tuesday10: I wish I was a…
Did I mention that my husband is going to NYC this week for a training class? He left this afternoon for the airport and won’t be home until late Friday night. Of course I already miss him like crazy but I guess we’re doing alright so far. I’m trying to keep myself feeling positive about this by thinking about things like having the whole bed … Continue reading I’m flying solo this week

Still nothing. I’ll just get that out there right away since I’m sure many of my regular readers were hoping this would be The Post. I know I was hoping this would be The Post. I have been kind of avoidy lately – not wanting to answer the phone just to say, “No, nothing yet.” Not wanting to write another post about how we still … Continue reading The Post That Isn’t The Post
Yeah I know, I’ve become a disappearing act. To be fair, I’ve barely been home and when I have been home I was dealing with the Case Of The Disappearing Internet. Or rather, hubby has been tinkering and it took out my internet for awhile and then he had to scratch is head and fume at my iMac for awhile because they don’t speak the … Continue reading Here, Sort Of
Just wanted to check in quickly. The boy just went down for his nap and I have 2 hours before people might start coming over (it’s quasi-game night, don’tchya know) but I didn’t want to leave you all waiting with collectively held breath any longer – haha – that’s right, you can exhale, sort of. So the interview went very well and Dan’s more smitten … Continue reading On Dream Companies and Cities and Reality
