The last time a shared a "day in the life" post was almost a year ago. Today I am sharing what a fall "day in the life" looks like with a hybrid kindergartner and [almost three year old] twins. 6:45am: I try to wake up by this time [the latest] so I can get my … Continue reading Fall “Day In The Life”
My daughter started Kindergarten (hybrid model) on September 10th.It's been a few weeks since she's started her A.M session and only two since she started her "remote learning" sessions. The in school portion is two and a half hours. She is going five days a week unless she happens to be off on that particular … Continue reading Kindergarten, COVID Style.
I recently took a trip to New York; just me and my oldest.To be honest, I just needed a break from the norm. It's hard to believe that the fall is almost here, but I am highly excited for sweater weather.I surprised my mom with a stay at Bear Mountain. It was kind of a … Continue reading R&R.

In the past few days, I … Continue reading August Favorites.

We've been spending a lot of time at that local "field." I honestly don't know we haven't before.It's only a two minute drive away. There's a pond, a soccer area and picnic benches. We've had meals there, played with kites and even just thrown rocks into the pond.They have a small "beach" area, that is … Continue reading Enjoying Simple Things.
Last Friday was a rough day. The kids were misbehaving and just bugging each other as per sibling usual. There were toys everywhere. I had asked them to clean up and they did. An hour later the house was a wreck again and they started misbehaving... again. Most parents threaten to take their kids favorite … Continue reading I Took My Kids’ Toys Away [And Gave Some Back].
This week I made the hard decision to stop doing YouTube videos. With finding out that work is going to be closed until next year and just trying to navigate my thoughts, I just have not had the energy to make a video. It's time consuming to not only make a video but edit one … Continue reading Decisions.
A few weeks ago it seemed as if the "stay at home" order in my state was going to be extended. But then all of a sudden, New Hampshire was [pretty much] going to reopen on June 15th. That's just how it's been; things can turn a complete 180 the next week or even the … Continue reading NH Reopens.
