Why Don’t You Care That We Are Dying??? Why The Silence???

I generally don’t say too much on fb. I mostly just post cute pics of what me and the kiddies are up to, so that our friends and family can share in some of our daily happenings. I’m not even on US soil for 9 or 10 months every year but it is my home […]

How to Maintain Your Sanity When Flying Internationally With Kids and Dogs

I’m very much a wing-it type of woman. Dinner time is whenever it’s ready, bed time is after the kids are fed and bathed, and our daily schedule is so fluid I wouldn’t even call it a schedule. However, when trying to maintain my sanity on a long haul flight, I try to be prepared. […]

Mastering the International Move

I have always thought of myself as a free spirit, even as a young child. I did have goals and aspirations for myself, but I knew that there was a world beyond what I had experienced, and I knew that I wanted to see it all. In my pre-marriage, pre-baby years, I moved around depending […]

For The Love of My Overseas WAGS

I often talk about the good and bad of overseas life, with the good far outweighing the bad. While some things hold true regardless of the team or country, I’ve found that my experiences are greatly affected by the city or town I’m in, and by whether I have a friend to help me pass […]

When Bad Things Happen in Foreign Places

I always try to believe that people are inherently good, and even if they aren’t I still try to find the good in them. Throughout my travels I have met so many great people, some who have become friends, and others who have helped me or shown kindness in some way. As much as I […]

Living That Hotel Life

I used to love the hotel life. The plush, comfy beds. The 24 hour room service. The immaculate cleanliness. I could do little more than go about my day and then come back and revel in my laziness. It was what dreams were made of. That was back in my Ritz Carlton days, when I […]

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade . . . and Then Sip it poolside in sunny South America

I’m a firm believer in Murphy’s Law, where just when you think it can’t get any worse, it does. But I am also a believer that when one blessing comes your way many more are to follow. My husband is such a great player and great leader and he gives his all on the court. […]

How Long Can I Last on the Dukan Diet???

I used to be one of those women who could eat whatever I wanted and not gain a pound. I’ve never been on a real diet and I never thought I would need to. My secret is the worst kept secret around. I work out. I eat fried chicken. I run. Nutter butters. Run. Buffalo […]

Is All Hope for Humanity Lost or Am I Just a Crybaby?

If anyone follows me regularly they will have learned that I write about the good, bad, and funny things that happen while living overseas. But recently, in light of the tragic crash of the Germanwings Flight 9525, my mind has been elsewhere. I’ve always felt that I was a strong, smart, and almost unemotional kind […]
