More often than I care to admit, I fall asleep without washing my face. I live with the repercussions of blemishes, premature aging, and overall oiliness, meaning I end up needing more skin care products and costing myself more money, not to mention I’m old enough to know better. Why? Why in the world do I do this to myself? Bad habits, baby, they’re hard to break.

In the summer of 2011, on our family’s annual camping trip, my then five year old daughter went vegetarian for the next year. It stemmed from the meager success of our fishing expedition – one trout – being part of our dinner the last night of our trip. You see, when we caught that little trout she was positive we would be taking it home as our pet and her little five year old heart broke when we ate it.
Being organized is one of those elusive ways of life for me, like being a Zen master or not having a Facebook account. In my constant striving for some semblance of order, I have learned to keep it simple. Whoever said “less is more” actually knew what they were talking about. When you have less stuff, it’s easier to keep track of it; that’s a given. But where do you cut back and what do you leave out?
Whether you love it or hate it, the first day of school is right around the corner. It’s time to stock up on all of the essentials to make sure you’re at peak performance level while managing the hectic schedules that come with the school year.
In the warm summer months I love grilling outdoors. There’s something about the simplicity of summertime cookouts that makes me feel like life has slowed down a bit and maybe even gotten a little easier, if only for those couple hours. Whether it’s an old fashion block party with my neighbors or watching a gorgeous evening sunset in my backyard, from creative kabobs to decadent desserts, I love it all. Plus, it cuts the after dinner clean-up to a minimum, and I hate doing dishes.
I’ve given you all the sunblock lecture plenty of times, so I’m not going to do it again…today. Instead, let’s talk about ways to take care of your skin after a long day mountain biking on the trails or chasing your kids up and down the beach.
Every once in a while, mommy needs a little “me” time. But with our busy schedules there isn’t always time for a peaceful morning hike or a refreshing stroll through the park. So what’s an overstressed, overworked, burnt-out mom to do?
