Wading the job market water

I have a love/annoyed relationship with LinkedIn.  I love it because I have been able to reconnect with prior co-workers which is always a good thing in case a need for a reference ever occurs.  I like the news feed feature where I can customize the article content I see. (I really like the Jack […]

Naming a Pet (Mahna Mahna)

By this name of this post you would think (rightfully) that we are naming a soon to be new pet (perhaps).  What I mean by this is that my husband is tossing around name ideas for a new puppy.  We have not actually said when we would pick up this puppy, nor have we actually […]

The Innocent Genius of a Child

I think that every parent experiences those moments when your child says or does something and you stand there in amazement thinking “I have a genius of a child!”  I had this experience recently and it was one of those moments that felt profound I have found myself rehashing it in my mind several times […]

Words of a Mom

Do you ever look back on your recent life and wonder what strange movie you’ve been cast in?  With two children and a dog odd things are sometimes said by us parental figures, not out of the ordinary for any family but if you caught only soundbites it is odd.  I have caught us saying […]

Six Degrees of Sylvester Stallone (pt 2)

Continuation from yesterday’s post: Do you remember the game we all played as teenagers, Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon?  In this game you try to link yourself to Kevin Bacon using no more than 6 connections.  The connections could be almost anything but eventually it was via someone who worked in a film or dated Kevin […]

I Don’t Own Snow Boots

I was born, raised and still live in Wisconsin.  It snows here, at times quite a lot (the best winter picture of me is when I am two and the snow drifts are three times my height).  It has been known to snow anytime from Halloween to Easter.  And it is expected to get COLD […]

TGIF

Today I did something that I haven’t done since I was a young, dumb teenager. I locked my keys in the car! This is a fabulous way to start the day, but at least I am laughing about it!! I guess the cold is affecting my brain, that must be it since my hat is […]

Shifting Perspectives

With the new year I find myself going through a perceptive shift on how I define myself.  Ever since the birth of my son I have proudly worn the badge of a mom.  When my maternity leave ended I upgraded myself to Supermom (I think once you wear spit-up on your shoulder and oatmeal in your […]

Holiday Break is Not for the Weak!

It sounded great when it first started, we would all be home, off of work, school and daycare for 11 whole days! Some great family time where we could, laugh, bond together, make some memories, and just be relaxed at home.  We would have fun every day and enjoy every minute together.   Eleven whole days […]
