not just another momma blog, the down & dirty of finding my groove, an ALL-access pass to becoming a mompreneur

We never ran out of toothpaste when I was a SAHM

List 1 –

Yesterday I thought it was grilled cheese day at school, and I sent my 7-year-old to school without a lunch.

Last night I went to brush my teeth, and we were out of adult toothpaste (kid’s toothpaste is awful).

Yesterday I skipped my workout, so I could enjoy a haircut in the middle of the day.

Last night I went to sleep with the dishwasher clean and full AND dirty glasses in the sink.

wordless wednesday – 1st ever for bckngruvmom

just a few words on the 1st ever wordless wednesday here – picked up  a grande skinny caramel macchiato on my way to visit my mom in the hospital – aaaah! now time to prioritize!


snow days part 2, getting groove back, & girls night out

After a week that included one snow day, one 2 hour weather-related delay, my crazy attempt at a vlog, a mostly non productive Friday, and yes – no school this coming Monday…I felt the need to address the snow day discussion again.  I will not spend a lot more time on it — just a few more thoughts.  By the way, Backngroove Readers — did you ever notice that my background pic is the ocean? Guess what? I do not like snow!  I know crazy…I should move, but my mom would miss me too much (and that is a blog for a whole different day).  My groove was totally off track this week.

First of all, I am not the first to say this, but what is with the snow delay?  We did not have snow delays growing up (I know – my grandmother used to walk miles to school), but honestly the delays are ridiculous.  Not ridiculous because the school wants children to safely travel to and from school, BUT ridiculous because why is it not a priority for cities, townships, communities to make certain that roads are clear so buses and cars can take kids to school on time.  As far as the cold weather goes — I cannot even go there because in reality how much does it warm up between 7 & 9 a.m.? Not much.
