by RealMomofNJ on April 02, 2013 in Food & Recipes, Schedules, Tips

I’ve been doing No Cook, No Bath Tuesdays for awhile now, and I have to say, I love it. When I can pull it off 100%. It makes a big difference in my happiness on Tuesdays. But after almost 6 months of doing it, two very important¬†addenda needed to be added because I noticed there were still plenty…

December Plan

by RealMomofNJ on November 30, 2012 in Holidays, Parent Stuff, Schedules

Do you remember when you were little and December was the slowest month of the year because all you had to do was wait to collect your presents? Me too. Do you remember December 2011 being the fastest December ever because you’re now a grown-up and have a kid or two? Me too. It used to be “OMG, is…

A Schedule! For ME!

I just had a huge a-ha moment related to Monday’s post about feeling chaotic because I neglect myself to take care of my family. What enables me to run my family smoothly? A consistent schedule. What practice do I apply to my kids, husband, and pets, but not myself? A consistent schedule.

Because I’m always scrambling to fit myself and…

This is normal; I am often most exhausted on Tuesdays because that’s when the weekend catches up with me.

My Weekends Aren’t Weekends

by RealMomofNJ on October 15, 2012 in Mom Stuff, Parent Stuff, Schedules, Tips

It’s Monday, and I’m more exhausted than I was last Friday, after a full week of work. Our weekends are insane with social obligations, household chores and projects, errands, and cooking for the coming week. It’s clear that 2 full weekend days aren’t not enough time to accomplish all I want to accomplish; by Sunday night I’m tired from…
