Rosh Hashana is Coming!

Sunday Yup, I’m posting on a Sunday.  Not sure what possessed me.  Usually I wait until Monday, but with a busy (short) week ahead, Sunday it is! Computer Part of the reason why I haven’t been posting too much is because our computer is under repair.  DH says it should be up and running soon… Work Another reason for my lack of posting is because I recently switched departments at work.  My new position is awesome, but keeps me so busy!  By the time I Read More +

Getting Ready for School

I cannot believe that we now have 2 kids in school!  Both boys started school on Wednesday and seem to really love it so far. Getting ready for school was tough.  I have had the most crazy work schedule I can remember.  I’ve had to give up some of my work from home days and have been leaving work later than I used to.  The thought of shopping for school was overwhelming! The Sunday after we received the school supplies list, we were at Target. Read More +

12 Months to a Healthier You: September 2014

12 Months to a Healthier You is a monthly challenge I’ve decided to take on. By taking on small challenges every month I’m hoping to make lifelong changes in the way I live.

As a reminder, here are this year’s focus areas: 12 Months to a Healthier Read More +

Shabbos Menu: P’ Re’eh (Aug 22-23)

It’s been quite a while since I posted one of these!  My menus haven’t changed much, but the time I have to cook them has.    With new work responsibilities and kids who are staying up later and later, it’s been hard to spend time by myself, so posting has taken a slight back-seat. I cannot believe that camp is over and the school year has almost started!  This year we will have 2 kids in yeshiva, so childcare will continue to be a challenge. Read More +

Blueberry Muffins

I’ve never been that great of a baker, so I was really surprised when I made blueberry muffins the other day and they came out really good!  The muffin tops were amazingly crisp and high and I really had a hard time believing that I made them. Maybe it was the fool-proof recipe I used… or maybe it was my secret baking powers that made them turn out so good.  Whatever it was, I found that these were the perfect solution to a breakfast-less morning.

Our Friday Afternoon Trip to the Doctor

Last Friday night I felt like I was on top of the world (and completely exhausted). It started at about 3:15 pm when I got that dreaded call from daycare.  “DS3 has pink-eye.  You have to come pick him up.”  That morning DS3 was in perfect health, so of course I double checked with daycare, “oh, he was fine this morning.  Are you SURE it’s pink-eye??” They were sure.  And they were right.  When I got to daycare 15 minutes later (yay for working from Read More +
