Mom’s Group

So, I finally joined a mom’s group. That’s a big thing for me since I’m super shy, and it’s really hard for me to get to know people. I’ve only gone to a couple of meetups so far since work and Lucy napping tends to get in the way, and it’s been a lot of fun. I’ve enjoyed meeting the moms, and Lucy really enjoys seeing the other kids. I can tell she really wants to get down and run around with them. I love all the various events, like playing at the park, going to area attractions and indoor play areas, and mom’s nights out. I’m going to my first mom’s night out in a couple of weeks, and I’m really excited (although I know I’ll miss being home with Joe and Lucy).

I know some of you guys are in mom’s groups. What are your favorite events to attend?

Getting Rid of Mosquitoes

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Mosquito Magnet. All opinions are 100% mine.

I hate mosquitoes. They’re one thing I absolutely hate about summer (besides the insane heat, of course). Mosquitoes are really annoying, and mosquito bites are horrendously annoying! Nothing, including calamine lotion, seems to help when I get mosquito bites. Besides the annoyance, mosquitoes can carry diseases like the West Nile Virus, which is something I always think about whenever I see the bugs flying around.

I’m lucky that where I live there doesn’t seem to be a huge problem with mosquitoes. We don’t have a pool or a bird bath or anything like that, so we don’t have a problem with standing water, which is typically what attracts mosquitoes. My parents, however, have a small lake in their backyard, so they could have more of a problem with the bugs. I think I might talk to them about getting a mosquito magnet. I read a mosquito magnet review, and everyone seems to really like the product. People who have used the product say that they wouldn’t be able to enjoy the outdoors without it. That says a lot to me.

I definitely think this is something my parents should try so we can really enjoy the lake this summer and not have to worry about any mosquitoes ruining it for us. Do any of you have mosquito problems where you live? Have you tried anything to get rid of them?

Battle of the Schulmans

Tomorrow is the annual Brain Bowl, a competition aimed at finding “the smartest business in town”. Every year, three of the businesses owned by my company compete. Every year, WBHF makes it to the finals but loses to one of the museums (because, you know, they ask questions about astronomy and science in the final round last year for Tellus).

This year, though, is going to be different. I know it. This is our year to kick their butts. And, what will make it even sweeter will be beating Joe. It’s Schulman vs. Schulman tomorrow. Bring it.

Wordless Wednesday: Coffee Break


This teething thing is not a lot of fun. I feel so bad for Lucy, and I wish there was something more I could do to make her feel better!

I’m really getting frustrated with my lack of weight loss. Sure, I haven’t put in as much effort as I probably should be, but I just am having a hard time finding the motivation. That and my knees have been hurting a lot lately. I just wish there were some diet supplements that I could use that would burn the fat off. That would make this so much easier.
