The weekly ramble: where I blog like it’s 2004.

Last weekend I unplugged when we headed north to Santa Barbara. We stayed one night with friends. The next night with the grandparents. Super fun times!

This weekend I’ve been unplugged enjoying time with my parents. Dad brought me two cases of lemons from his tree, so I spent the  morning juicing and freezing the fruits of his backyard Meyer Lemon tree. So awesome.

After a quick lunch, Grampa Jack took us to The Lego Movie, and now my mom is making Goblin Goo with the girls. Spending time with family instead of balancing the books or hammering away at the keyboard has been a nice change of pace.

Now, after months of deadlines and big projects, unplugging is nice. I have another big deadline approaching in June, so I’m not out of the woods yet, but it’s nice to come up for air.

Meanwhile, here’s what’s been happening on Life as MOM:

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
