Wednesday Wisdom: Working Moms Get The R.e.s.t. You Need!

One of my outfits
Being a working mom can be draining. We have to please our bosses, our kids, maintain a household and serve our communities. Indeed, I was recently appointed to our local water authority. How did that happen? I was asked to do a job that needed to be done. As a mom, I couldn't say no. Oh, I also have my ever handsome husband who has demands needs as well. If I'm not careful, I could be an exhausted walking zombie all of the time.

So, how do I keep the pep in my step? I get my r.e.s.t.

Mother's Day Reflections (#CorporateCulture)

I was blessed with an idyllic Mother's Day. It began with a breakfast prepared by my family, which included presents. A few hours later, we got ready for the day and had a wonderful brunch at Capital Grille. We also visited my mother-in-law, who I like. So, by all accounts, my day was epic!

On Monday, I went to work early, worked an extended day and went to the grocery store. It was the day after Mother's Day that got me thinking about the state of the working mom in America and helped me appreciate the dichotomy between our exaltation of mothers and the lives working moms. My hope is that this past Mother's Day motivates a conversation in this country about what working mothers truly need and that we see real change.

Cruising is an ideal vacation choice for working moms because you can book it and just wait for the fun to begin. We went on a Disney cruise last winter and had a great time. It started with an amazing launch party!

Working Mom Tip: Organize Your Car (#PrimpMyRide)

My ride #PrimpMyRide

Working moms are in search of tips to make their lives easier. One thing that we all tend to do in our increasingly busy lives is to spend lots of time in our cars. Without proper planning, our cars can get really messy. Indeed, early this AM I was cleaning out my own car so that it looks like an automobile a scarp book/garbage can.
