Surviving the Introvert Hangover.

I feel a little jangly today. My stomach feels off, probably from all the sugar in the apple crisp last night (worth it!), or maybe all the socializing, and my muscles are sore from working out. We had a busy weekend and now I feel “hungover” of sorts. I get like this after a big weekend. (#introvertproblems) Except for my…

Happy 2017!

It is a new year! I am wishing you all a…..       There is so much pressure to perform better, faster, stronger and more efficiently in the new year.

Chit–chat ensued and they started…

The Guilt of Not Working

Being a stay-at-home mom is a job. Actually, it is many jobs. Without breaks. Or bonuses. It is the hardest job I have ever done, and I have had 3 jobs at once. So why do I feel so guilty?   I think the image I found above is fairly accurate. (Thank you, internet.) Except in the last picture have…

The Power of Being Alone

Wondering Wednesday: The Power of Being Alone. I recently had coffee with a friend who went on a month long trip and spent some of that time traveling alone. Normally an extremely social person who likes to have a friend along, she decided that this time she would do some of it on her own. She looked at landmarks, asked…
