Hold My Calls; I'm Napping

Hold My Calls; I'm Napping

When my son was just  few weeks old, I jokingly gave myself the title of his Executive Assistant. I, of course, was (and am!) a lot more than a dedicated employee of his: I love him more than I can begin to describe. So it was not your average boss / employee relationship, but there were a lot of similarities. I took his calls. Sure, it was my cell phone number, and I got the occasional call myself, though most of the calls were for him (I'd put him on speaker phone so he could hear the caller), or at least about him....

Three Weeks In

A lot of people in my life know how anxious I've been about having my son go to preschool. We have been almost inseparable for the past two years, excepting when he was with a very short list of trusted baby sitters or family. Now, he's out there, learning so much about how to interact with other little people. Many friends have been asking how it's going, some who know the struggle firsthand. I never know how to properly answer that question because it's a complicated one. After three weeks of school, the short answer is: It's going. This may sound...

What's That Smell??

Right, time to bare my soul here. This is a pretty embarrassing story, so if you have one about yourself you feel inspired to share to make me feel better, please feel free to comment away! I'm hoping that if you know me now, you'll read this and be in awe. Because if that happens, that means I've achieved my goal. :-) My first job out of college was as a Sales Assistant at a financial company. I worked in DC and lived on the outskirts of the metro in Virginia. Every day, I would walk to the bus stop on...

Celebrating Life

Happy Good Friday to those of you who celebrate! And for those who don't - happy Friday! Having been raised in a Catholic family, I have a lot of nice childhood memories from Easter weekends, starting with Good Friday. We used to all cram into the family car to head towards Mount Saint Mary's University in Emmitsburg. To paint a picture, there were six of us, with me being the shortest kid, squeezing into a station wagon-sized ride. As someone who likes her space, getting there was NOT half the fun, though the destination made it worthwhile. We'd arrive at the...

Spring "Cleaning"

Wait, where did spring go? Feels like we've jumped right into summer in NJ! I think I'm okay with that. We've been able to enjoy a lot of outside time the past few days: going on walks, hanging out at the park and just playing in the backyard. Mother Nature may have skipped over spring (at least temporarily), but my spring cleaning urge did not tag along. Okay, I should probably clarify that. I rarely get excited about cleaning. I enjoy having a clean house, so I will try to muster up the oomph to get rid of the dust as...
