It’s five o’clock. You’ve just finished work. Now you must pick up the kids from daycare and get home in time to make dinner. You’re half-way home when you realize you have no idea what’s for dinner. What to do? Other than panic of course? Do you: a) Make a quick stop at the grocery […]

Help Wanted

Posted on in Stay At Home/Working Mothers | 0 comments

For the past few weeks I’ve been struggling with balancing home and work. As a work-at-home-mom (WAHM), one of my biggest battles is getting my work done and still having time to be wife, mother and household manager, and maybe even enjoying some time for myself. With Dawson now in preschool two days per week, […]

Is Sarah Palin Willing to Fight for Women Everywhere?

Posted on in Stay At Home/Working Mothers | 0 comments

With the 2008 Presidential Election creeping up on me, politics has been on my mind lately. More specifically, John McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin, has been the center of my attention. Who is this woman, this working mother of five, who appears to be grabbing the GOP bull by the horns? The emergence of Sarah […]

Back to Life, Back to Reality

Summer is almost over. The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting darker and many parents are ready to get back to reality. Ready to send their kids back to the life of text books, loose leaf paper and sharpened pencils. I don’t know if I’m ready. In less than three weeks, my son […]

Work is a Four Letter Word. So is Jose.

If you’ve ever worked in a busy office, you know that phones are constantly ringing, fax machines are incessantly beeping and the click-clack of keyboard typing fills every moment of potential silence. It’s enough to drive a person to drink (after work cocktails anyone?). If you’ve ever worked in an office full of women, you […]

Money (That’s What I Want)

Last week my neighbor, Shelly, and I were discussing employment and the topic of wages came up.  Shelly is an Advertising Sales Representative for a local radio station with an exceptional sales portfolio.  For the last five years she has exceeded every sales goal imaginable, yet she told me she hasn’t had a salary increase […]

They Say That Breaking Up Is Hard to Do

Just after I lost my job, one of my closest friends took it upon herself to call me anytime a position became available at the company she works for. Since I have a background with insurance sales, and my friend works for an insurance company as a claims adjuster, she thought I’d be perfect for […]

Job Seek and You Shall Not Find

Posted on in Stay At Home/Working Mothers | 0 comments

Today marks the two month "anniversary" of losing my job. I’m not celebrating unemployment, although it’s wonderful that I’m no longer in the worrying stages of this unfortunate situation. In the last two months I’ve submitted countless resumes and applied for various positions in a variety of fields. There was the bank teller position that […]

All Fired Up.

No sooner than I discussed my frustrations with my job, the company I worked for decided they could no longer keep up with the competition in the Audiology/Hearing Instrument Sales Industry, and axed my position to stop their "financial bleed" within the corporation. The irony of the situation still gets me. Here I was complaining […]

All is Fair in Love and Work?

It’s Valentine’s Day, the holiday in which lover’s express their love for each other (according to Wikipedia), typically with flowers, chocolate and romantic dinners at fancy restaurants, not always in that order of course. But for those who aren’t in a couple, Valentine’s Day can have entirely different meanings or purposes. One can express their […]
