A Mom’s Quest For “Me Time”

How do moms get “me time”? Is it even a possibility? Or just a faraway dream? This is something I struggle with all. The. Time. I work outside the home, so my days and weeks feel like a constant tug-of-war (internal and external). I literally run from one task to the next. I have an everpresent feeling of guilt, hovering somewhere over my left shoulder.… Read the rest

On The Island: Wonderful Publishing Story, Lovely Book.

I recently read the book On The Island by Tracey Garvis Graves. Admittedly, my primary reason for reading it was my fascination with this author’s path to publication. This is a woman who, after slugging it out trying to get her novel published via the traditional route, decided to self-publish. Now, publishing a novel yourself–if you’re hoping for any degree of success–is notoriously difficult.… Read the rest

Roundup: My Recent Health Posts, January Edition

Here’s what I’ve been blogging about in the past couple of weeks on my other blogs:  9 Ways To Boost Your Brain Power Learn how chocolate, blueberries, and a good night’s sleep can help you become a much smarter cookie.   Is It A Cold Or The Flu? So you’re sniffling, your coughing, you’re feeling pretty miserable…is it the flu? Or a cold?… Read the rest

Ready, Set, Go: Resolutions for 2013 (even if you hate New Year’s Resolutions)

On my healthy living blog, Savvy Health, I just wrote a post about alternatives to old-school New Year’s Resolutions. If you’re keen to take advantage of that January fresh-start vibe, but you’re not crazy about rolling out the same old list (and then admitting defeat after, say, week 2)…here are 3 different ways to go.

2012 Rewind: A Year For The Books

I might be a little late to this, reviewing my year. But the holidays were such a mad frenzy of activity, I find that only now am I able to sit and reflect. And I admit I was going to skip doing a 2012 review post, until I started thinking about what a truly kick-ass year 2012 was. So, better late than never, these were the highlights of 2012 for me: I started running, and ran my first official 5K.… Read the rest

My Holiday Playlist

I love music. It’s therapy, medicine, and one of the great pleasures of life. The cool thing about music is there’s so much variety. It’s totally acceptable to have eclectic tastes, and you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy it. The holidays, however, are an interesting time, music-wise. There’s some gorgeous music out there, there’s some overplayed stuff that starts out great and ends up tiresome after you’ve heard it 332 times, and then, of course, there’s the downright tragic.… Read the rest

“I’d rather be one of the kids”

I’ve been having a very difficult time coping with the recent horrendous school shootings in Connecticut. I’ve been feeling stuck, unable to find the words, unable to move forward. Writer’s block has never affected me in the past. To be honest, I have never fully believed in it, as a concept. (Writer’s block? Quite frankly, I don’t have time for that.) And I’m not sure that’s what’s happening right now, but it might be something close.… Read the rest

Roundup: My Recent Health Posts

Here’s what I’ve been blogging about in the past couple of weeks on my other blogs:  How To Deal With Morning Sickness Because having your head in the toilet is not very ladylike. Or duchess-like. But if you’re pregnant and suffering with morning sickness, what can you do? Lots, as it turns out.   Facing A Fear of Cancer Most of us live in fear of cancer.… Read the rest

Coffee & Writing

A while ago I wrote a post about the perfect food pairings for a writing life. But I’d like to expand on that and talk about something near and dear to my little heart: the brown gold otherwise known as coffee. To my mind, coffee is the perfect desk accessory when you’re writing. Allow me to make my case? (Or, indulge me as I wax about my love…) Coffee is warm, cozy, and comforting.… Read the rest

Moms Chasing Dreams: How To Manage Your Time

I don’t know how you do it all. People say this to me, from time to time. And they’re referring to the fact that, admittedly, I have a fair few things on the go. But I’m not alone in this–MANY moms have multiple roles, multiple responsibilities.  Truth be told, sometimes I’m not exactly sure how I do manage it. Also, sometimes I *don’t* manage it, and then the meltdown begins. … Read the rest
