Mom Guilt During Covid

Mom guilt during Covid.......I am tired. I can’t kick this feeling that I should be doing more.  I  finally lost it today and hid in the closet and cried. Anyone else feeling “Mom-Guilt” during Quarantine?  My social media is telling me that I should be playing more games with my kids, going on more walks, cooking healthy meals, and having fantastic bonding moments baking with my kids.  Instead, the kids are tired of my cooking, are ...

It Is Hard To Believe

It is hard to believe that I just celebrated my 47 birthday! It is hard to believe where the time went..

The Unseen Hero

The unseen hero...Steve Jobs once said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” Everyday I get to come to work and do great work, I get to share my passion for caring with my coworkers, callers, and road officers.

What I Believed

I was reading Noelle’s Blog the other day called ”What Do You Believe” and I was going to comment at the bottom but wasn’t sure if you’d see it.  Go to the Blog & read it,  It’s a really GOOD one!!!  It’ll open your mind. It reminded me of my first marriage. In the beginning, I did not really, really, really see the effect his outbursts were having on me.  Mainly because whenever he did ...

Siri Is My Friend

Siri is my friend. There is a commonly held idea that men don't like to ask directions. As a guy, I am here to say it's true.

First, open settings on your iPhone and go to Siri & Search and make sure ‘listen for hey Siri’ ...

The One They Claim They Want

The one they claim they want but cannot handle. “Looking for a girl who’s tired of the games.” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen that exact phrase listed on a dating website bio.  A guy claims he wants something real with someone real.  But then when he gets it, he ghosts it. I’m one of those girls that goes all-in on everything.  Work, motherhood, friendships, dating- if I’m invested in something, I’m ...

TWSM Smoked Salmon Flatbread Pizza Review

Smoked Salmon Flatbread Pizza One of the things I’m discovering about working from home is how nice it is to take a break and pop into my own kitchen to make my lunch. All the ingredients I may want are there. I don’t have to prep something at 6:30am. If I decide on something different or have a craving for something, it’s easy to change my mind. I can also take my lunch on the ...
