Did you know August is National Sandwich Month? My family has been eating a lot of sandwiches this month. Not because we are celebrating National Sandwich Month, but because I haven’t had time to actually cook! “Mom! What’s for dinner?” “I’m working. Make a sandwich.” “Not sandwiches again!!” “It’s that or go hungry.” “UGH!!!!” Between work, back to school shopping, unpacking from our move, and my firstborn heading off to college, August has been one of the toughest months for me.

Although I was compensated by Starwood Retail Partners with a payment, product, or something else of value in exchange for writing this post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.  It’s that time of year again!

I don’t know about you, but I started the count down to back to school about two weeks after my kids last day of school. Summer usually drags on FOREVER.

"Go outside and have fun!" Come home when the street lights come on.

Go outside and have fun!

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.
