The 36 Day Delay

I’m super-pumped to share that last year I was invited to contribute to Seacoast Moms, a collaborative site geared towards parents in my area— the Seacoast of New Hampshire. Pieces are written by moms for moms (and dads, too).

While I only contribute monthly, man that month rolls around quickly. But I gotta admit, I love a deadline. The only problem is that I haven’t been as focused on sitting down and writing for Finding Alice because I am the deadline setter and I’M A PUSHOVER FOR A BOSS!!!!!!

Truth be told, I’m constantly thinking about this blog and what I’d like to write about. If procrastination were a sport, I would be, like, the Simone Biles of it.

“MOST DECORATED PROCRASTINATOR DOES IT AGAIN, MARIE KONDO-ING SOCK DRAWER INSTEAD OF TACKLING TO-DO LIST”

But, it’s all about to change in 2020. Oh, we’re a month in?

New idea. I’m starting my New Year’s resolution 36 days in. That’s actually my resolution, put everything on a 36 day delay, and so far, I am off to an excellent start.

Here are a few of my pieces for Seacoast Moms, if you’d like to take a little gander.

Diagnosis? A Case of the Man Flu

I used to reference “the Man Flu” all the time, and tease Rick for it whenever I saw a window of opportunity. No more. Here’s why.

One Thing You Shouldn’t Say When a Friend’s Mom Dies

Obviously inspired by my personal experience losing my Mom, Alice, I wrote this to remind myself and anyone reading about how important it is to reach out to someone going through something tough. Even if you don’t know what to say.

Allergies & Halloween: 4 Easy Ways to Welcome All Trick-or-Treaters

Although this was obviously written for Halloween, it may be helpful to get you thinking about food allergies when it come to any kind of group gathering— BBQ, birthday party, etc. If your family members or friends don’t have food allergies, they probably aren’t on your radar at all. My son, Ryan, developed allergies to peanuts, tree nuts and egg before he turned one, so it’s been on the top of my mind 24/7 since 2013.

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for more coming very soon. Sooner than another 36 days!
