Mo’Ne Schools ‘Em Again

baseball, Catholic, motherhood

My love for another resident of the City of Brotherly Love has just been magnified! You rock Mo’Ne!

@pontifex Holy Father – you need to meet with her when you go to Philly!

The City of Brotherly Love and Rock Star Superpowers


Took 36 hours off and went to Philadelphia to drain and recharge my batteries.  Got to see Engineerasaurus  score a goal,  but most importantly to be a part of the dynamic that is him growing into a young man. I also got to spend 4 hours in the car with Biolosaurus  and sing songs,  talk and giggle like we haven’t been able to in a while.  I thank God every day for my big,  non-traditional family and my awesome Papasaurus  who stayed home with the JV squad to clean the house and get them ready for the new sports season ahead.  I know I caused him grief by rolling into the driveway at 6:55 AM this morning just that bit late for him to leave for work,  but I needed a shower and a nap at 1 am and 3 am as I’m not a 20 year old rock star any more!  I spent most of today in sleep deprived blissful sleep. Now,  I take up the dinner making gauntlet once again!

Hi-Tech Motherhood and the 21st Century Economy



Greetings from Albany Law School. I would not be here if it were not for Arcadia Spring Break and Biolosaurus being my sister nanny for the day.

There is my point. As an economist by training, educational technologist and teacher by profession, hi-tech entrepreneur by layoff, and most importantly Mamasaurus through gift from God, the ability to take a day to recharge my intellectual battery is an amazing achievement.

Graduation is rapidly approaching for my Engineerasaurus and I am forced to look back on 2010 and where I was at this time prior to his previous commencement.

2010 I was working 40 to 60 hours a week at 3 different job sites (schools and BOCES) 2.5 hours away,  renting a house,  trying to mother 5 busy children including a 3 year old,  being a daughter to an Alzheimers patient and finally a wife of 19 years who was not doing a great job at any of the occupations.

2015 I am happy. Mamasaurus and wife is my joy not my job.

The difference is tangible!
