Desperately Seeking Sleep

Desperately Seeking Sleep

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you probably know that I suffer from insomnia. Between my husband Colm’s snoring, our God-awful knockoff Tempur-Pedic mattress and my racing brain, I’m lucky if I get four hours of sleep a night. Some nights it is closer to two. Then of course at 5:30 am when it’s time to get up, I’m so exhausted that I have to drag myself out of bed, rouse the first set of kids to get ready for school, get them on the bus and then I sleep on the couch for 30 minutes until it’s time to get the next kid up and out the door. After I drop off my two oldest at school I get home and either start working right away or I go back to bed and …

A Day at the Spa

Mother’s Day at the Spa

My husband, God love him, is a wonderful partner, friend, and father, but he is the WORST gift-giver. Three years ago he bought me a vacuum cleaner for Christmas, and he STILL doesn’t understand why that was a bad gift. Two years ago he bought me a soft, fluffy robe… that was an extra small (but thank you for thinking I could fit in it!) This past Christmas he didn’t get me anything; I think he has pretty much given up trying. He used to buy me perfume, flowers, gift certificates to the spa. Now I’m lucky to get him to buy milk on the way home from work. I haven’t received a present from him in years, unless I bought it for myself. Last week he came home and handed me …
