Mommy Needs A Nap

Every morning, I wonder the same thing….will I ever sleep all night again?  I wonder what people who DO sleep all night look like in the morning.  Probably no bags or dark circles under their eyes, while mine look like my toddler did my makeup with a paint roller.  Do other people’s children sleep all night?

Runner Wannabe: Here She Goes Again!

running woman

Let me start this post by saying I LOVE running.  I really do.  I just suck at it.  For a myriad of reasons (including my miniature height, being extremely *ahem* top heavy, and pitifully out of shape), I don’t run well.  But I still love doing it.  I have the heart of a runner.  I hear stupid theme songs like Eye of the Tiger in my head as my feet hit the pavement.  And if anyone asks me, I proudly tell them of my love for running.  But the truth is, I am a far cry from actually BEING a runner.

It is raining…Again.


It is raining.  Again.  Not like it did last month.  Last month, I took a second to count the hash marks on my wall, and it confirmed my fears: That watery prison held me and my offspring captive for eleven days straight!  Rainy days like these mean I haven’t been able to say “Go outside and play”.  Rainy days like these mean I’ve heard “Mom there’s NOTHING to DO” approximately every 3.9 minutes.  And rainy days like these mean throwing my little ones into the SUV for our typical beach days has been off the menu.  Will. It. Ever. End…?!

Ever have that day where you just don’t feel it?  The day that starts with you telling your alarm to “snooze” and it hears “Never mind” and doesn’t go off again?  The day that involves the two year old who wakes up 5 minutes after you put her down for a nap…all three times you try?  Yep.  Me too.  That is the day I’m having.

Top 10 Dating Do’s and Don’ts

Top 10 Do’s and Don’ts of Dating:

This particular blog is stemming from my recent re-entry into the dating world, and it is truly more of a public service announcement than a blog.  Because….wow…there has GOT to be a manual out there somewhere of dating do’s and don’ts, but if there is…my first date hasn’t read it.  So below I’ve taken the liberty of compiling a list of things that you should not try, and should not tolerate.  Finding Mr. (or Ms.!) Right presents its own difficulties without the below mentioned ridiculousness! O_o

1)      Please, oh please, DON’T talk about your ex.  It cannot be said enough.  I repeat, it cannot be said enough.  I realize there is going to be the “So you’re divorced?” or the “I’m back on the market” comments that will come up, but this is not an opportunity to spill the entire saga of your relationship’s demise.  Just answer the question, and move on.  Trust me – if there are additional dates, there will be plenty of times for details.
