Where’s Waldo???!


As a mother of 4 boys it is important to know and understand how “this” all works. “This” doesn’t just happen. ”This” requires a lot of work, awareness, balance, effort, patience, acceptance, yoga & meds. Awareness is key and the first step toward inner peace. (“This” being simple survival skills of the psyche.) Due to […]

…’cuz I gave you life, that’s why!


Like a flock of seagulls assaulting a newly-opened-bag of chips on any hot summer day at the beach, I too am attacked the second I walk thru the door by relentless pandemonium from moody teens & their imbecile statements; They attack from all angles; ‘I’m starving! Why do I have to empty the dishwasher?! SQUAWK! He’s breathing on me! […]

…wait for it…


Its pretty sad and pathetic, that in my quest for INNER PEACE and SELF DISCOVERY my own Doctor, a TRAINED PROFESSIONAL IN THE MENTAL HEALTH INDUSTRY, could actually look at me with a straight face when offering his PROFESSIONAL advice. While looking over his notes and intensively listening to my latest concerns and steps on […]

The ‘iPod-incident’


        Being a mother and raising a family is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. It never occurred to me how overwhelming raising 4 boys could be! As if keeping track of them 24/7 and making sure they’re fed, clean & smart wasn’t enough, I’m responsible to make sure they’re “well-adjusted” and […]

I have been a PUMPS member for about a month and am so impressed by the classes and facilities that I can't seem to stop myself from trying to recruit every friend I know from joining! I spent many years refusing to join a gym and thinking I could take care of my fitness needs on my own through jogging, etc. I was so wrong! The classes are fun and challenging at the same time and have shown me how much I have to gain by being a member--sore muscles that are growing stronger by the day! The instructors are top notch and truly the best around and the prices really can't be beat.
