Where Has The Time Gone?

It’s been a long journey, but my children are now both finished with elementary school and on to the adventures of middle school! Suddenly, i find myself with more time on my hands, as I am no longer a PTA Mom, but a working Mom with kids in middle school. I’m stoked! I am looking…

Empty Nest of Summer

We are one week into the NYC summer vacation. I began the break with the ACS Relay for Life of Middle Village. I was team captain, and we had a Star Trek theme for our team. I even made a fun hair bow to wear to match my captain’s shirt. As it turned out, the…

My Life is Like a Spiderweb

Here it is, January 2012. Some believe it is the end of the world. Many of us know that the Mayan calendar does not end, but begins again. Does this mean that history is doomed to repeat itself, as the calendar repeats? One thing I have noticed over the past year (from filling out dates…

October! It is over!

It’s not that I am not a happy little creative geek in October – it’s that I’m an incredibly BUSY one!  I made it through the month, and even had a chance to flex my creativity! Since there wasn’t a solid pumpkin crop this year, I opted to paint my front window instead of lining…

Geektober!

It’s here! The busiest month of my year! So much to do, and seemingly never enough time! I could shock you all with a listing of my schedule for the month, which includes fundraisers, PTA events, and oh so many birthday parties… but I don’t want to remind myself of the monumental size of my…

The Whirlwind that is Summer

As mentioned, I was planning to have guest bloggers all Summer because, naturally, it is a very busy season.  It turns out that it is a very busy season for everyone, because several people have had schedule upheavals and weren’t able to send me their promised posts.  No worries! I imagine there will be a…

Summer Creativity for Little Geeks

My kids will be staying home this Summer, as the cost of day camp is high and the quality often low. Since they will be with me 24/7, I have been putting together a schedule of activities to keep them occupied and happy. I’ve already signed them up for the New York Public Library Summer…

Expanding My Mind

I have been conspicuously absent from this blog for a few months. Why? Because I decided to go back to school. I didn’t have a chance to complete my degree the first time around because life got in the way, but I transferred my credits to a new program. So far, I am maintaining a…

Tentative Lunacon Schedule

As mentioned previously, I will be a guest at Lunacon this year! Here is my schedule as it presently stands: Fanfic That Dare Not Speak Its Name Friday 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM Literary classic + monsters = Bestseller? How did this formula, called crazy by any other name, suddenly become the Next Big Thing?…
