No worries about a thing……

Vacation was great yet somehow it already feels like a lifetime ago since we returned back home. It has been a few weeks since I have written (for quite a few reasons) and in a way the time away left me with a lot of things to consider and think about before I started posting again. Being back home is even better because I missed my boys terribly and seeing their faces when we returned was just awesome. There is something to be said for going away on vacation now that we are parents because while I used to cry on our last day of a vacation and be sad about leaving, now I have something way better to look forward to in going back home and it makes the end of vacation just as good as the beginning…but I digress.

My husband and I enjoyed an extremely relaxing, chill, fun and wonderful vacation in Jamaica. Days were spent on the beach, napping, swimming in the ocean, kayaking and of course enjoying the many fruity cocktails on hand. It was a much needed break from our hectic lifestyle and a chance for us to “just be” with no expectations, deadlines or needs to be met. We missed the boys a lot and talked about them or looked at pictures often because no matter how far away we may have been, our boys are a part of who we are and nothing will change that. I considered writing while we were away but decided that it was best to leave the computer at home and just take the time to unwind and recharge which was exactly what I did. (more…)

Bring on the sunshine…….

oprah

I am pretty sure that at this point everyone is ready for spring time, sunshine and warm weather. Yet another snow day today which means the kids are home, parents are cooped up inside, food stores are emptied out and we are all trying to come up with new ways to stay entertained. I am certainly no different and after catching the stomach bug again this week (that is twice this month!) I am itching to get out but alas the weather has different plans for me. We have a lot going on in the next month or two and I am getting stressed about all that needs to be done (more to come on that in a future post). When I get in the mode of worry, anxiety and stress over everything that I have to do, I often become paralyzed and unable to start any one project. But time is not always on my side and if one thing is for sure, my husband is getting on a plane to Jamaica next Tuesday whether or not I am with him so I best start packing, start planning and start getting excited because whatever may be happening here in NJ I am most definitely only 5 days away from some serious sunshine.
