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 [...]
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.
Despite the overt cynicism of those who know me [...]
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 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 [...]
With a New Year creeping up on me (and how did that happen so fast??) I started contemplating resolutions. What hadn’t I done that I wanted to do this past year?
I really need to do more writing.
And running or exercising.
And certainly have a few more date nights with my husband.
In my glorious (vain) attempt to stay on top of life all the way through the holidays, I began planning out not just our festivity and event calendar, jam-packed first with baking Thanksgiving pies and roasting the turkey, then with the Christmas tree lighting, Santa visit and pictures, the Nutcracker ballet, and holiday parties (school, work, [...]
Every November, as the stress of the holiday season (now including one extra holiday for our family, that being our little one’s birthday) begins to set in, schedules fill up, “free time” is spent drafting holiday cards, baking cookies, decorating the house, and shopping for infinitely more presents each year, and sleep deprivation firmly sets in, [...]
After putting the kids to bed, making tomorrow’s lunches, putting away the laundry, and picking up errant toys, I sat down to ruminate over this month’s blog post. Should it be the awesome fall walk the kids and I took, collecting a massive amount of acorns along the way? The mobile we made out of [...]
Sexism is out there.
In fact, I bet it’s deep somewhere inside each and every American today. Even the most feminist of feminists.
You scoff, I know. Sure, some people are sexist, you say. But not everyone. Not feminists.
Let me convince you.
I have always thought of myself as a feminist. I think women [...]
I am so very, very worried about missing part of my children’s lives. I wish I could stay home rather than working so I could spend weekdays with them and not lose those precious daytime hours. Stay at home mothers can make me jealous with their most mundane of stories. I’m even jealous of my husband because he [...]
