We Only Have 100 Days Left in 2018
As I write this quick blog post, it is September 20.
September 22 marks only 100 days remaining in 2018, AND we are only 10 days away from the beginning of Q4. The last and busiest quarter of the 2018.
We all know it’s traditionally the start of the busiest shopping season, but that’s not even so much what I’m talking about here.
The Busiest Time of Year for Moms
As moms we are already strapped for time. Kids are back in school, and many of them are back in after school activities as well.

Not something many people know about me….

In The Midst of Chaos, Clutter and Struggle
Life is busy – we all know this, I’m not telling you anything new.
I am a midlifer, caregiver, mom, grandma, daughter, friend, business owner, dog owner, and the list could go on.
We all have these different hats that we wear. We all have responsibilities, commitments and obligations.
- We want to be available for our children, grandchildren, parents, extended family
- We want to be in good health as we age
- We want to be financially secure
- We want to be awesome and well established in our career
- We want to be a fabulous homemaker, cook, and organizer
- We want to be able to offer help to others by giving back to our community and/or church
