Time Stands Still..

Life these days has taken on a new meaning. As we head into September, I think back to the long days and sleepless nights and how we are now here. To me, time stands still. While days may not seem as long anymore, life just isn’t the same. As I look around at the new…

Quarantine Restlessness

My thoughts have been drifting mindlessly this week (which is why I haven’t written in a few days.) Most days I feel good and strong. The next, I feel fear, anxiety, sadness, and helplessness. I try to steer clear of the media and radio but no matter where I look the impenetrable, overwhelming sadness is…

Tales of An Exhausted Mama

As I write this, I am pretty sure I am (somewhat) present with a rather LARGE cup of coffee today. With just 1 hour of sleep, I tend to rethink myself quite often throughout the day. As life would have it, all 3 of my children suffer from asthma (just as I did as a…

Back to School or not..THAT is the real question

As I write this, I have noticed many parents on social media (and rightfully so) conflicted on whether to send their children back to school in the Fall or not. While I do fall into this category as well (somewhat), I have always been a very black and white person. Always. And because of this…

I left my role in healthcare (HR) just 2 months shy of the pandemic. Had I known what was coming may or may not…

United We Stand..or Do We?

This should never be taken lightly. However, I can’t help but wonder..do we really stand united today? Of all days, do we really? So much…

Quarantine Fatigue..is REAL

As I write this, I find it hard not to feel a bit envious of those planning their holiday weekend getaways. Why you ask? At the moment, I can only imagine it has to do with what is now known as “quarantine fatigue.” About a month before the pandemic started, (mid February) my son came…

I Said What I Said.. MOM

These exact words were said to me from the back seat of our SUV not even 1 week ago. I turned around and tried not to laugh. His exact words were, “I said what I said Mom. I don’t know what I said, but I said it.” If possible, this is where I would insert…
