Try something that scares you

When you’re self-employed and you work all alone at home, there isn’t a supervisor who’s going to assign you a more challenging project or suggest you step outside your comfort zone. There isn’t a boss you’re trying to impress for a raise (raise! ha!)…

Asking for what you want

Werk It Wednesday is a day late this week, guys. I was crying a lot yesterday and couldn’t really focus, so here we go! Once again, I came away from a BlogJam conference feeling 1,000X more motivated, excited and determined than I was going…

Wanted: More time for everything!

We talk about how 24 hours in a day are just not enough. That’s never been more true for me, as a self-employed whatcha-ma-call-it, because it’s hard not to feel like any working opportunity SHOULD be spent working. Here is a complete list of…

Five resolutions to make me a happier professional, mom, wife, person

I’ve told you which five New Year’s resolutions I do NOT plan to attempt, so how about the ones I *am* going to try? Here they are, listed in the exact order in which I scribbled them out on a notepad on my desk…

Five New Year’s resolutions this mom is NOT making

A new year means parents are often inspired to “start fresh” and implement new healthy habits — or drop some of the bad ones. But just because there’s a new calendar on the wall doesn’t mean you’re not already doing a great job raising…

Sixty-five thousand

I hit 65,000 words today on my novel (in my novel?) and it feels … it feels like everything. Fifty thousand words felt like a huge accomplishment — was it really just 12 days ago? — but now at 65,057 words I feel like I’m…

Fifty thousand

I hit 50,000 words this morning on my newest novel — the novel I’m hopefully will actually see the light of day. Fifty thousand and 14 words, to be exact. You know, unlike the first one (55,000 words) that I got up early very…

New year, same-ish me

Happy 2014, Blogosphere! Well, that was certainly a hiatus and a half, wasn’t it? I leave you with the world’s most awesome candy recipe (and caramel corn recipe), and then … just leave? What was up with that? Shared this on Instagram recently, and…

Resolutions? I guess you could call them that …

I don’t typically make New Year’s resolutions. I’m more of the mind that you have to do things when it makes sense to do them, not when you’re “supposed” to think of things to do. If I decide I want to tackle a major…

Seven goals for the seventh month

Happy (early) Canada Day, fellow Northern Nellies! I hope your weekend is full of BBQs, beers, bonfires, and … other B-items? Baseball games? Oh right, and beaches! In the spirit of taking better care of myself, here are some goals I have set for…

The new and improved schedule

Happy New Year to my lovely readers! As I mentioned yesterday, 2011 is hopefully going to be a year of improved sleep for our little family. I am proposing that by creating and following an eating/nursing schedule for Baby Boy, he will not wake…

Double digits

Wednesday, March 3, 2010 26 weeks, 3 days pregnant There are only 95 days — give or take — until Baby Boy arrives. I can’t believe we’re down to double-digits! So how are we doing, preparation-wise? Here’s where we stand on our getting-ready-for-baby goals…
