The first week of my vacation is already behind me and I did not see it go by. It has been busy! I have been looking to replace my vehicle for over a year and this week I went for it, albeit unexpectedly. My friend leases her vehicle, and she likes it—how I understand the… Continue reading Summer Break – Unexpected
This... that above... mine is... fubar. I napped twice today and still I would go back to bed if I could. Close to 20 years of sleep issues make me a very tired woman. The first culprit was my becoming a mother. No stranger to interrupted sleep, it did not get better when the second… Continue reading Circadian Rhythm
I look forward to summer break. The spring in my step is not what it could be. I won't travel this year, I need rest, I need a rested brain.

May will be a month of travels, and say what you will, long drives tire people. As the… Continue reading When Exhaustion Hits
Never an easy feat! Between the job, the kids, the household, the errands, the chores, the side-career you are trying to launch, and some forced leisure time, taking care of oneself only becomes another item on your to-do list. I am no exception. Sleep? Hum... only during the weekend because I have no reason to… Continue reading Take Care of Yourself
