Help! I’m having technology overload!

Help! I’m having technology overload!

              Every now and then I come across another rant about how technology will prompt the downfall of modern society. Technology via the internet and the like, has been blamed for a multitude of evils such as… unhealthy escapism and addiction social isolation shortened attention...

Finding Peace at the Kitchen Sink…

Finding Peace at the Kitchen Sink…

I hate doing dishes. Before we had our son, this job was relegated to my husband, who didn’t mind doing dishes and I thought it was a fair trade since I usually cooked dinner. I was 100% fine with that arrangement, although sometimes felt bad about being such a messy cook! Having our first child changed a lot of things around the house and...

Make a “Give Thanks” November Countdown Calendar!

Doesn’t it seem like November always flies by? Every year I have such good intentions for assuming the spirit of thankfulness and giving this month, and every year I  feel I get so caught up in the bustle of Christmas preparations that all my good intentions are lost in the shuffle. Last year, while bemoaning another fast and furious...

The New Mom Identity Crisis

The New Mom Identity Crisis

I went into labor on my due date. The contractions started around 8 am, not too painful but pretty regular. I knew it wasn’t yet time to go to the hospital so my husband went to work and I hung out with my mom….biding time. We did a little shopping and went out to lunch where I ordered a turkey sandwich (which came back to haunt me later...

Is your life balanced? Find out with this fun exercise…

The idea of balance means something different to everyone, an obvious conclusion after reading each multi-faceted post this month! So, what do you think about balance? Is your life balanced? I initially wrote about the balance-wheel exercise back in the Spring when we were talking about Play. I admit, I am a sucker for this kind of thing. Whether...

A Modern-Day Sabbath: Two Moms Share how they are Learning to Rest

A few weeks ago, I received two separate emails, from two different people, recommending two individual moms to share their stories on MomColoredGlasses. The crazy part about this? Both of these moms recently started observing the Sabbath – a day of rest – every week! (and as far as I know they don’t know each other) When I got the...

I’ve got the post-baby-body blues…

Something’s got me down today and it has nothing to do with peace in the Middle East, world hunger or the fact that we have to spend another $800 on one of our cars. No, it’s much less noteworthy and much more personal…like how my body has changed since the whole pregnancy/childbirth/breastfeeding thing. For some reason (can’t remember...

Make a Vision Board to stay focused and inspired!

Make a Vision Board to stay focused and inspired!

A few months ago I came across an article in a magazine (I can’t remember where I found it now) about making an inspiration or vision board. It seemed like an interesting idea at the time since I’d gone through so many transitions over the past year – my life was so jumbled and disorganized! But then of course the busy-ness took...

The Art of Taking a Bath

The Art of Taking a Bath

Last month at the end of a crazy week, I decided to take a bath.  No, not with the intention of bathing myself, but in order to relax and get a little “alone-time”; for me a bubble bath is always an instant stress-reliever. Here is the play-by-play on how my “bath” went down that evening:   8:45 – Rinsed tub of 1-inch layer of...

The Best Things in Life Aren’t Things

We recently bought our Dream House. It is a fully renovated farmhouse built in 1899, complete with high ceilings, wood-carved fireplaces, rustic pine floors and lush views of the verdant countryside.  The house can easily accommodate a growing family, the price was right, the interest rates were low….so we bought it….our 6th place of...
