For some odd reason, I hear circus music playing in the back of my mind. And you know what I realize? My life is a three-ring circus. Or is it six rings? It’s a circus because it’s May. The month of May will make the crustiest, most veteran mom want to curl up in the fetal position and bawl like a newborn. I’m not [...]
A UM field hockey game. A hike. A trip to the dog park. The neighborhood Easter Egg hunt. Earth day “Day of Service” for the elementary school. Two soccer games. Three soccer practices. One bike trip. Two Tigers’ games.
Delayed. Postponed. Canceled. Rescheduled due to rain.
This has been a very frustrating spring [...]
I’m a joiner. I always have been. If there’s a committee, or club or volunteer organization, I’ll be there to sign-up to help or maybe even lead. I never have understood the people who don’t help with anything or join a group just to be a number. That is just a foreign concept. Volunteering gives me a lot of joy. But… (there’s [...]
Last year, I decided I didn’t have nearly enough to do in my life and wanted to add something new…collecting sap to make maple syrup.*
So, I bought a “maple syruping at home” kit and read a couple things, Googled a few things, and jumped in.

Having children can sometimes be like stepping into a cold shower or looking into a mirror. They will shock you by imitating things you’ve done or said, and they reflect your actions in how they look at problems and how they handle responsibilities. Sometimes, it is a refreshingly cold shower, and then you get out and look in the mirror [...]
This month’s article theme is responsibility. As I sit here three days after my article was due, with an
annoying voice (my own) nagging me to call the tile guy and finally get that quote, the contractor and complain about the excessive time the house repairs are taking, and the bank to get me back [...]
I love the scene in the original Willy Wonka when Veruca Salt’s golden ticket is found. Her mother says something very interesting. She says for children the thing that matters most is happiness. Happiness and harmony. Well, based on Veruca’s actions and attitudes, I have to humbly disagree with her mother. I’m afraid that there are many new [...]
Can you feel that? That is my desk shaking at about 10:30 am after a 24 oz. large hazelnut coffee with cream from <insert popular chain> that sends me into superwoman mode where my job just can’t keep up. I admit that the warm morning beverage is a comfort food. I don’t have to have it, and honestly I have worked [...]
I had a post all planned out for this month’s “cooperation” theme. I had planned to talk about a bunch of
different crafts and projects anyone could do with their kids after the winter had begun to drag on. When putting on snow pants and jackets had begun to seem like too much of a chore, and [...]
Life changing moments
We’ve all had them, and more than likely you remember where you were the exact moment one happened. Some life changing moments are big and some are small, but each one helps to shape and mold the person we are.
I had one of those moments Christmas Day. No, it wasn’t while [...]
