Why does everything have to break at the same time?

water heater in atticIt started with the car breaking. The computer broke next. At this point I’m thinking “OK, I can handle the extra time and expense of two things breaking around the same time.” But the “breaking” had only just begun because before I had gotten the car and computer fixed more things broke that required more of my attention (and time and money). The air conditioning started breaking (at the […]

Why I took 30 minutes to invest in my health today…

No appointment needed. Those three words helped me get two immunizations today to help protect myself against the flu virus, whooping cough, and tetanus.

Ramblings 4 Mom

I went to the CVS Minute Clinic and I was impressed with the quick service (and the important ‘no appointment needed’ policy). As a mom I won’t skip my children’s annual exams or immunizations – […]

Why I read to escape the stresses of the day…

eBooksReading a book is my favorite way to unwind. My mind is taken to another place, another time, another story. I know ideally I could take a vacation from my normal routine and go somewhere exotic…but let’s be practical – that takes money and time that I don’t have.

We’re still […]

Why I close the dishwasher when it’s completely unnecessary (yes, I need CLOSURE)

Dishwasher ClosureMonotonous tasks. Endless chores. We all do them every day. And sometimes I just want CLOSURE on them. I want to be able to say “I am FINISHED” (even though I may only be finished for a minute or two).

This is why when I have a sink full of dirty dishes and I’m unloading the clean dishes out of the dishwasher and I’ve got […]
