I am a travel writer and the Owner/Editor of my blog. I also am the mother of three flyboys and a Macfly husband.

My husband is a remarkably tolerant and patient man with me, with the boys…not so much. We did not grow up with a house full of boys and are often dumbfounded by all of the bountiful energy. I often wonder how to capture their excessive energy and somehow convert it into something renewable.

I have been told that my Blog inspires other parents to face their family with a new positivity that isn't induced by taking Xanax.

Finding Inner peace

Posted on April 7, 2011 at 2:36pm 0 Comments

It's been a long time since I have checked in over here. How is everyone? Did you survive spring break? I'm not sure that I did with a husband getting his ribs broken by a snow boarder and the usual shit that goes down at this time of year but....I did take an inner peace workshop, for the sake of the blog, and I have to say…

Most of us don’t wear pointy, golden brassieres or sexy tight cat suits so it may not be so obvious but I am convinced that all mothers are either Super Hero’s or Goddesses. Personally, I am far from being Helen of Troy or Hestia I feel as though I am more of a cross between Hera and Aphrodite with a little Medusa thrown in.

In the past three months my superhuman powers have reached dangerously high toxic levels as I managed to survive four… Continue

I put my boots on and trudged through the new snow out to the barn to fax a 137 paged document to my mortgage company…. yet again.

As the cogs in the fax machine began to squeak I stood in Wade’s sacrificial office, which is the antithesis of mine, playing with the smoke that was emitting from my mouth and nose. For me he built a beautiful office, inside the house, with a huge window facing South and situated directly next to the kitchen so I can jut in and out preparing meals and… Continue

Are You For or Against Health Care Reform and Why?

Posted on September 18, 2009 at 8:28am 0 Comments

I am wondering how many parents are like me in their inability to keep up to date on political issues. It is frustrating to say the least, to not have the time to listen to the news or to read the newspapers and whenever I do get the chance to get better informed I usually wind up either in tears and angry from reality or completely confused.

Listening to educated people is my alternative and I try to listen to all sides so that I can make my own opinions. One of the most important… Continue

When I got my second call from Brevitt’s teacher, in a three day span, I hung up the phone and had to think for a few moments. Almost ten, Brevitt is becoming a calmer and less anxious boy and is learning how to respect authority. So why was he getting into trouble? I could understand the teacher’s fear that energetic Brevitt and his pack of friends were going to be the bain of his existence for yet another year but I felt the need to tell him to give Brevitt a chance and to practice patience… Continue

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
