About a month ago I started a new journey. I have started a job share, so instead of working full-time and being a mom full-time, I am now working half-time (and still being a mom full-time– that job share is much more complicated to get).

I think I’m having a mid life crisis. I’ve given it a lot of thought. I don’t want a midlife crisis, but facts are the undeniable. The writing is on the wall and I need my glasses to read it.

Or Really Any Mom: The things they don’t tell you in prenatal class.
2018 is going to be my year. 2018 is the year I’m going to finally lose the 10 pounds I have spent 5 years trying to lose. I’m going to eat better and stretch every day. I’m going to drink less wine (maybe). I’m going to spend more quality time with my family, advance my career, and… Continue reading New Year’s Resoloosens
