My fitness challenge is nearing the end. I’m reflecting back on the journey and looking forward to the final results.
Those who know me well know that I’m extremely organized. At home and at work, I’m usually the one with all her ducks in a row. I truly believe this is the only way I can juggle being a wife, mom, manager, professor, friend and colleague. Since the New Year is really right around the corner, I’m reminded that for many, it’s a time to renew commitments to being organized.
It’s back-to-school season. The kids start next week and I have already finished one week of teaching at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. For me, this time of year is a reset, much like the New Year is for most. It’s a way to get back into a routine and try to recommit or commit to something new. This year, my new commitment involves trying for the 98th time to be better about my diet.
We celebrated over the weekend, just a tiny bit. What did we celebrate? We celebrated the fact that we’re finally making some progress on things around the house and the busiest of days are behind us.
A Wrinkle in Time fails to satisfy but maybe with time, as with wine, it will get better.
Five years ago this month, my husband and I went on our honeymoon. Of course, we had to visit the highly rated wine bar at the Rio casino.
My middle child experienced a rite of Catholic passage this past weekend when she made her first penance.
Pets are a lot like children. They need constant care and feeding, playtime, discipline and all your love. They also are not immune to accidents. Saturday afternoon around 4 p.m. we had our first experience with the emergency vet clinic.
My husband took a road trip to Canada for my Christmas present this year – Niagara-on-the-Lake wine.
I received an Instant Pot for Christmas. So far, I’d give it a positive review.
