Now that the school year is over, I’ve been able to reflect on the year and think about some of my experiences.  Something that I really enjoyed was being a room mom.  I was so busy during the year that I never really made time to sit down and write about what that was like.

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

So I finally finished reading “After You” and I definitely have some opinions.  When I go through the reviews for a book, I find that most of them are very editorial-like.  Many of them talk about the development of the characters and what not.  Well, this is not that kind of review so if you

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

A few years ago I saw “Me Before You” on the NY Times Bestseller list.  I try to go through the list often and read as many titles as I can, just to find out what the fuss is about certain books and why people are reading them.  I’d rather find out for myself than

I usually visit my rheumatologist every three to four months if everything is going well.  I’ll go more often if I don’t feel that great.  On the occasions when I am not managing so well, he tells me the same thing without fail.  Sleep. Exercise. Manage stress.  Those are the three most important things that

Let’s face it.  Fibro sucks.  You know what sucks just as much?  Paying for prescriptions!  I don’t even consider it an option to not get my prescriptions.  I know that I will literally feel like I want to die if I don’t take the medication that I need to manage the symptoms of fibro.  Why

The view from the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel was beautiful!

I recently attended my first Mom 2.0 Summit.  The president of the company that I work for suggested that I go.  I’m always up for a new learning opportunity so I was definitely up for the challenge.  Once I heard it was at the Ritz-Carlton I was totally in!  Regardless of the location, I thought
