Blog

I am a fun-loving dedicated wife and hardworking mama of two. Not only do I work full time, but I do it from home. Lord, help me!

I like to write about my experiences of being a working mom, as well as sharing some of my trials and triumphs. It may not always be pretty, but I promise my stories will be light-hearted, make you laugh, and possibly even teach you something. 

Thank you for stopping by!

Love,

"Me Time" Does Exist

Posted by Angela Caban on August 4, 2018 at 12:40 AM Comments comments (0)


I love that picture. It was taken right after I asked my husband to please take the kids to the water so I could relax. After a blissful hour of them playing in the sand, while my husband sat with them, I got to read and work on my tan.


That would have never happened if I didn't open my mouth and ask. Not that my husband doesn't help out, bu...

Ditching the Working Mom Summer Guilt

Posted by Angela Caban on June 28, 2018 at 2:40 PM Comments comments (0)



Summer break is here and while many of the moms I know are planning out their summer activities of places to go, things to see, days lounging by the pool and spending quality time with their children – for me, these next 11 weeks will look the same as all other weeks of the year.


I am still up by 5:30 am, my morning routine will not change and I will be...

6 Truths Kids Learn When You Work from Home

As I am typing this both of my kids are home. I can hear them yelling at each other right above me just one floor away. I wonder if I can write one more paragraph before I have to step away and play referee.


Hold that thought, be right back…

This is the life of a work-from-home mom. This lifestyle isn’t always about convenience or ...

Defeated By Spring Break

INSERT STOCK PHOTO OF STRESSED WORKING MOM HERE.

(p.s. all the work from home stock pictures looked happier than what I feel today.)


How defeated do I feel? As I sit in my writing nook typing this, it is the end of spring break day 2. I am worn out, with absolutely no desire of even typing this. I figured that tomorrow this day will just fizz out and...

Work from Home Chronicles: The Balancing Act

Posted by Angela Caban on April 23, 2015 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (1)

Did you know that 80 percent of workers feel stressed during the workday? Where does this leave us that work from home? Here’s the thing, we aren’t exempt. If anything, I would say the stress level goes up just a tad higher then working out of the home. Why? At least for me, because I work for myself and have various clients and projects – I can never leave my work at the office. My office is in my home, and sometimes my bed, kitchen, laundry room and car. Yes...

Encouragement is All Around You

Posted by Angela Caban on March 13, 2015 at 10:10 AM Comments comments (1)

Why do we tend to get sucked into the drama and negative things in life? I am certain everyone has made the comment, "Why does the drama always follow me?" Well, this is most likely because you allow it to.


I tend to stand back, and instead of participate in encouraging the negative, I spin it around and try to make whatever mess they're in, positive. I know many times when I do, people think I don't care or don't want to listen. That simply isn't the case. If you're like me...

A Year of Thanksgiving

This Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. No matter how you spend this day, this is normally a time in which we all reflect, count our blessings and give thanks.

Did you ever realize that this month is filled with Facebook statuses in which why one is thankful this month. Does this go beyond one month a year?

I am guilty of this as well. I will count my blessings and remind myself of why I should be thankful – but life gets in the way. EVERYTIME!

Grief Healing

Posted by Angela Caban on October 6, 2014 at 11:15 AM Comments comments (4)

Death is inevitable. Yet why is it that the loss of someone you love always showers us with a range of emotions? We may desperately try to avoid the pain with these emotions clouding over us. Clinging to what comforts us the most, feeling like we have no other choice but to accept that this is life and that we are grateful for the opportunity God has given to have loved in such a large capacity. Other days we have anxiety and feelings of helplessness hanging over us, feeling angry and not wan...

What to Seek in 2014

Posted by Angela Caban on January 4, 2014 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (2)



Why do we anxiously await the arrival of a New Year? Is it in hopes of starting over, a fresh start to keep us looking forward to something in the New Year? That's fine. But have you ever thought about why you are making a resolution in the first place? Many want to better themselves or perhaps prove a point that they can change and do better. The start of a New Year does not h...
