The days are all starting to meld together. Florida instituted a stay-at-home order for 30 days – ruining our ‘bug out’ plans because the sheriff did us the courtesy of stopping by several times last Thursday to let the boys know it would be enforced. I find it a bit ridiculous in our little isolated […]Read More CoronaDiary: 4-4-2020
That about sums up my life right now and trust me I am NOT complaining. I feel relatively safe and isolated, but still… 6 teenagers, 1 husband, and 1 dog in a very small house – that’s 8 people! Here is the good news, said very small house, is on a pretty secluded island off […]Read More 6 Teenagers, 1 Husband, 1 Dog & 1,600 Square Feet
I am working toward my itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini bod. No, who am I kidding, I’m working toward my, let’s not look like a breaching yellow submarine in a one-piece bod!

Labor Day is behind us and the kids are back in school, the days are getting shorter… so, hopefully we can all find some time this Fall to curl up with a good book.

Wow! I feel ready to tackle the week. I spent a couple hours last night with my current binge on Netflix, Mindhunter, on in the background while I cooked up a storm! First up was getting ready for lunches – Friday is a splurge day, I have lunch plans with one of my besties. Having […]Read More Meal Prep For Success
Happy Birthday to my oldest wolf who turns 21 today. Indulge me in a little Mom reminiscing because for the life of me, I can’t figure out where 21 years have gone so quickly. You have ventured out from the wolf pack, aka your brothers. I would not call you a lone wolf although you […]Read More Happy Birthday Wolf 1
Do you rush home from work early to go out on the town? Yeah, I know I’m kind of laughing at that one too. Do you treat Friday’s and Friday evenings like any other night of the week? I thought so. Do you wake up early Saturday and knock out all of your errands, the […]Read More Approaching Weekends Differently
Yeah, Akrasia might be a fancy word for procrastination coined by ancient philosophers like Aristotle and Socrates but seriously, I buy presents. I buy cards. Why do I have such a difficult time getting them into the mail on time? I went to a wedding last Fall that I need to send a present for – […]Read More I have Akrasia. Who knew?
