Friday Reads (and talks with loved ones): April 3

This week I’m reading ‘Get a Life, Chloe Brown’ by Talia Hibbert. So far I’m really liking it. I didn’t expect for the book to be so humorous! The chemistry between Chloe and her family (most especially the handyman) is very vibrant! Throughout all the craziness of working remotely, and establishing a new work/life routineContinue reading “Friday Reads (and talks with loved ones): April 3”

December 24, 2018: Special Times

Christmas Eve, a special day for many. Not only because it’s a holiday, but I actually have the day off due to the lack of children at the center. I definitely needed the extra time for myself to refuel mentally. I even have some time to read my book today. I’m about 71% through withContinue reading “December 24, 2018: Special Times”

Blogmas Day 19: Christmas Memories

This photo features myself with my good friend Melinda, and her sister-in-law Allyson. This was taken about four years ago. Andy and I were visiting them in Morris County, NJ during Christmastime. Earlier in the year I returned to New Jersey after living in New York for seven years. Moving back was a bit ofContinue reading “Blogmas Day 19: Christmas Memories”

December 18, 2018: Appointments and Plans

I took care of my physical last night. There was some confusion at the beginning, and I needed to show proof of confirmation since I was told that I had no appointment. The issue was cleared up in a matter of minutes. Andy and I told our good friend from Andover that we’ll visit herContinue reading “December 18, 2018: Appointments and Plans”

December 13, 2018: Solutions When Stressed

The things that keep me grounded when I’m stressed: Reading: No matter how exhausted or strung out I’m feeling on any given day, I can read a couple of chapters in my book before bed. I’ll feel more refreshed. Watching short films. This can take the form of YouTube videos, or a television program. I’llContinue reading “December 13, 2018: Solutions When Stressed”

December 12, 2018: Two Months Apart

Last night I spoke to my best friend from Puerto Rico. We shared about how the life paths my cousin and her niece have taken, who were born two months apart, are very different. It’s been 13 years since I last saw her niece, and she’s made a successful life for herself. Had my cousinContinue reading “December 12, 2018: Two Months Apart”

December 9, 2018: West Caldwell with Friends

Yesterday was an eventful one. Andy and I began our journey in Somerset, headed towards the New Brunswick area. A couple hours into the journey, we received word that a good friend of Andy’s was having a birthday gathering an hour away. It was an hour away, yet we still wanted to hang out withContinue reading “December 9, 2018: West Caldwell with Friends”

October 27, 2018: Halloween Weekend Excursions

It’s the weekend before Halloween, but I’m not in the mood to go out anywhere, for once. As much as I enjoy this time of year, there are some things I need to attend to first. So it’s a night of watching the World Series. There’s always Halloween weekend 2019 to look forward to! ThereContinue reading “October 27, 2018: Halloween Weekend Excursions”

October 12, 2018: Books and Friends

My current read is Daughters of the Lake by Wendy Webb. I came across the book on kindle reads, where you can receive one free book if you’re an Amazon Prime member. From what I gather about the story so far, it flips back and forth between the 19th century and the current period. I’mContinue reading “October 12, 2018: Books and Friends”
