I Miss Summer Break

Posted Aug 7 2013 in , , , , , , ,

Yes, I know it’s technically still summer, but this year has been too busy for me to enjoy it. I’m also very aware that for most people, summer is simply another season that doesn’t necessarily mean much. But for me, summer has always been the time to kick back and relax. I’ve always had summers […]

Holiday Traditions 2012

Posted Dec 21 2012 in , , ,

I grew up in a family with very few traditions. Christmas was the one time of year that we had things we could count on. Christmas Eve dinner was a meatless affair at my mom’s mom’s house (good Catholics didn’t eat meat on Christmas Eve). We would each get to open one present at Grandma’s […]

Friday Favorites – Catching Up

Posted Aug 31 2012 in , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Now that the kids are back in school, I’m doing my best to catch up and get back into my regular routine of blogging. Not an easy task. I spent way to much time attempting to read the backlog of blogs and finally gave up. I really, really hope I didn’t miss anything vital. I […]

At the Beach

Posted Jun 7 2012 in , , , , ,

I’m being a total slacker today. My kids woke up early and convinced me to take them to the beach. I had a million things to do, like go grocery shopping, grade papers, and edit the stuff I do daily, but I let them win. We stopped at Subway and picked up sandwiches and hung […]

The Mother’s Day That Wasn’t

Posted May 15 2012 in , , ,

It’s Sunday night and I’m going use this post to vent a little. Mother’s Day around here wasn’t just a typical day. It was a typical day leaning toward bad. Like I’ve said before, I don’t expect big celebrations and lavish gifts. But today was a tough one. My godson spent the weekend with us […]

Meet My Cast

Posted Feb 7 2012 in , , , , , , , ,

I’ve been blogging for a couple of months now and I’ve mentioned a few times that I have 3 kids. I find that it’s been really hard to blog and not include such a huge part of my life (motherhood). I believe that since they are minors and haven’t asked to be a part of […]

Family Dinner – Blue Bloods Style

Posted Dec 22 2011 in , , , , , , , , ,

One of my favorite semi-new shows is Blue Bloods. Yes, it’s another cop show, but this one focuses more on the Reagan family than the crimes themselves. The Reagans are an Irish Catholic family in New York. The whole family is cops, except for Erin, the only daughter, who is a DA. There’s so much […]

Revenge is…

Posted Dec 8 2011 in , , , , ,

Scary. I don’t know if you’ve been roped into this show, but I sure have. When I originally saw commercials for Revenge, I hadn’t planned to watch. I thought it was going to be a Mean Girls kind of show. I think that mostly came from the lead actress looking so young. For whatever reason, […]

Thankful

Posted Nov 24 2011 in , , , , , ,

Since I’m traveling for the holiday, I’m going to keep this one simple. It’s Thanksgiving and here’s what I’m most thankful for this year: 1. My kids (this year and every year) – Although I work part-time, I work from home, so I’m always around for my kids. I never thought this was the life […]
