Seriously, why do we? No matter what it is, we always look back and think, what could have I done differently to prevent this? And 99.9% of the time, it’s nowhere near our fault. Looking back to an earlier post (Your cheatin’ heart), I mean related to this. Currently, I am with the close friend … More Why do we always blame ourselves?
As I sit in the airport, two hours early for my flight, I sit and drink a glass of wine. And while I sit, I have time to think. What’s that, you say? I haven’t the faintest idea. In our world nowadays, we are moving faster than we can think. There is more demands on … More What did I do with all my free time before kids?
Every now and again, there is something that makes you happy, makes you smile. You try to make those moments last forever. Many times, I find myself just looking wistfully at my kids, until they snap me out of it with a cute smile and a “what, momma?” It makes you happy to just look … More Wowed.

Case en … More The mildly introverted extrovert
I have been playing with the idea of going to see a medium ever since I was pregnant with my second visiting my good friend in San Francisco. We happened to go into a “really cool store” that she liked, and while we were there, I saw the man who ran the store. I immediately … More Finding peace where I least expected it

But then, one day in 7th grade, I got a note in my locker which was the same words, over and over again, that showed me I was out. Done. Finished. They ignored me to my face, refused … More Breaking into the “mom friend” circle
