Ah, sweet guilty pleasures!
Today both of the girls napped! Of course it’s because Juliet was sick (poor baby!) but this left little ol’ me with out a clue on how to keep busy!
Two o’clock, on the treadmill.
Two-thirty, MySpace, Facebook, Blogs….
Three o’clock + a pile of laundry + M&M’s + Dr. Phil = a happy mommy [...]

Today I have come to a full stop. It snowed last night, and my Julie has a fever and my other parents (aka, inlaws) are coming to visit for the weekend. The past few days have been busy, busy as usual but I have been making a point to take time for me and exercise. [...]

I often feel that two very distinct sides to my personality can be seen through my two girls.
Juliet, my oldest, is headstrong and emotional, controlling and takes comfort in routine. She is so extremely smart, gung ho for something new and hands on to try, and she can belt out showtunes like there’s no tomorrow.

How much to I love the internet?
Quite a bit.
How much do I love the internet, on my laptop, in the kitchen???
THIS MUCH! (holding arms waaaay out!)
So, on this lovely St. Patty’s Day (which originally had NOTHING to do with rainbows, gold, leprechauns or Guinness beer!) as my corned beef boiled away, I had the urge [...]

Today was a really good day.
Generally my days are good, but today was busy and full of smiles and conversation and fun and giggles. As I sit here on my bed, typing away on the laptop, my whole body is more exhausted than it has been in a while, but in such wonderful ways.
My shoulders [...]

Oh the Hormones! Darn hormones…
Do you know the awful things that run thru my head when I’m hormonal? Today is a quote from the film “The Darwin Awards.” Joseph Fiennes’ character in a moment of sheer frustration declares, “I could shove a spork up your ass!!” As yes, this is how skewed my perspective is [...]
