An Epic Mommy Update…

It's been a while since I've shared anything here on the blog, and I felt the need to share what's been going on. The Next Step in Motherhood First and foremost, motherhood continues to be a journey.  But hey, what should I expect? My lil' man is almost 5 years old now - only 4 months away.  I registered him for kindergarten last week *sniff sniff*.  I struggled through deciding whether or not to put him in public school or keeping him at his day care for kindergarten.  After some very … [Read more...]

Cutting the Cord…One Year Later!

It's officially been a year since we made the big cut -- cancelling our cable that is! If you asked me 2 years ago whether or not I would be able to successfully survive without cable for an entire year, I would have said absolutely not. There was no way that I would be able to survive without watching some of my favorite television shows live (who am I kidding?

Am I Crazy For Returning To School When I Have No Idea What I Want To Do?

I've been debating going back to graduate school for quite some time now.  But life always seems to get in the way.  And graduate school gets put on the back burner yet again. In other cases, I just can't decide which degree program I want to pursue.  I have considered pursuing my love of education, but with numerous opportunities and limited pay, I just couldn't see myself in the field.  I have also considered degree programs in health education, public health, and even pursuing my MBA. … [Read more...]

You Don’t Have To Agree with Me, But You Have To Respect Me…

I rarely touch any political or controversial issues here on Epic Mommy Adventures; it's not that there aren't issues that I want to address, I just choose not to share them here. I choose not to get into the debates about numerous issues, and having to get frustrated by the comments or applauded by those that agree with me. That's not what I'm about and it's not what Epic Mommy Adventures is about...so I just don't share my thoughts. I leave my thoughts in the abyss that is my mind. But this … [Read more...]
