A perfect hygge Sunday morning


It’s the little things….

A perfect cup of coffee

Your favorite candle burning

The smell of bacon cooking

Rain hitting the windows

And your kids sleeping safe in their beds….

Stop fearing and live your life


If you want to eliminate fear out of your life, the simplest way to do so is talk to a kid.  Kids have no fear to a degree and I guess that’s what gets them in trouble at times. But think of this, what do you have the greatest memories from and you more intense moments? Your childhood right? Think of all the careless, carefree things you did without hesitation when you were young? What kind of feelings did it give you then and what feeling does it give you now just thinking about it?

My kids do just that for me.  Not only do they bring me back in time, but they say to me, mom stop worrying just do it. So little by little I am.  Yesterday though I missed an opportunity of a life time.  I had the chance to go with both my sons(13 and 14) on a flight lesson over Piseco Lake in NY. Why? Because I was afraid.  That fear slighted me of something so amazing. How stupid can I be??? 

I guess I can’t beat myself up too much. Baby steps right? I fly high on the swings with them, I race on bicycles with them, we play manhunt at night, and we tell spooky stories by the fire.  I’m getting those feelings back and I feel like I’m starting life all over again. What a feeling!!!

Swing high on that swing my friends. Go for that rush you once had when you were younger.  You never know if you’ll get that opportunity again.  

Lunch in upstate NY, Casa Too Mucha


For a Wednesday a.k.a. hump day, I must say it turned out to be a great day. My kids had a snow day, the office was slow, and I didn’t have to substitute teach either. Woo hoo! So we went to lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant called Casa Too Mucha. The title is very deceiving because its far from expensive.

The menu ranges from Mexican food to anything and everything else. Everything on the menu is homemade and delicious! My favorite is the chicken chimichanga. Oi!  And yes they still have their Christmas tree up but that makes the place even more special. The owners are so welcoming and the place is cozy as heck.

Since we had a little time to kill after lunch we did a little shopping at Marshall’s in Rome, NY. If once or twice a month I can go in there just to catch some deals I am more than a happy camper. Seriously, you can’t beat their prices on some of their stuff. Good quality leggings for $5.99 really??? And a sweet little tunic for $9.99. How can you go wrong??

I love finding good buys. Two recommendations if you’re ever in the upstate NY area. Casa Too Mucha for a great meal and Marshall’s for great deals on household items, clothing, etc. You can’t go wrong.

The weekend is almost here and we are suppose to be going to the movies and out to eat. I’ll be doing a movie critic review as well as dining review again this weekend! Enjoy your day everyone!

Note to self and you, relax


I have about 4.2 mins to write this post.

Everything can change in the blink of an eye. Moods, emotions, circumstances, etc. It is all about how you deal with those changes.

You make them worse when you don’t take a deep breath and analyze.

Ask yourself is whatever just happened or happening worth stressing or worrying over?

Sometimes, yes it is. Other times probably not.

Take that deep breath. Relax and re-group.

 

Enjoy the day everyone.
