I was chatting online today with a new mom. She's lacking sleep, her baby was fussing in the wee hours...for hours. I remember myself feeling exhausted, discouraged, frustrated, thinking I just don't have what it takes. Her words were, "Seriously good for moms who can handle dealing with their kid for 4+ hours while they randomly… Continue reading Mom-Hood: What Every Executive Wishes They Could Do
Remember my post about Baking? 'Batter...the New Hair Gel?' This is similar. You know that little voice inside your head that says, 'Maybe not today Sandra'? Or when you know it's a Monday and there are certain things you should not do? Also, have I mentioned I'm impatient? Proper safety attire was adhered to throughout… Continue reading Mirror, Mirror

We thought it might be a gentler adjustment for us small-town folk. I remember in December, our first winter there, my husband Ward texting me saying 'It's snowing!'
