The Working Mom Holiday Crunch: 5 Things I am Doing

Posted by Angela Caban on December 4, 2018 at 11:50 AM Comments comments (0)



The holiday season has and will always be my favorite time of year. I do know that for many, the holidays can be full of stress and I get it, trust me. Weeks of non-stop events, shopping, family gatherings and trying to squeeze in every ounce of holiday cheer leaves working moms without one minute to spare. It’s a miracle we make it to January in one piece,...

"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...

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...

A Year of Thanksgiving

Posted by Angela Caban on November 24, 2014 at 11:10 AM Comments comments (0)

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...

Who has time?

Posted by Angela Caban on July 30, 2012 at 12:00 AM Comments comments (0)

So life as a mother of two has been hectic, especially since I am writing, managing a website and finshing up my Masters degree. Life is anything but dull, and who has the time for any extras?


I often sit back and think of the days where I had spare time, what did I do to pre-occupy myself? I watched tv, read, cleaned, went out shopping, hung out with friends and did a lot of eating out. Is that all I had to look forward to? I guess at the time yes, but shortly after my 20th...

Can I Do it all?

Posted by Angela Caban on February 27, 2012 at 11:00 PM Comments comments (0)

March 1st is my due date, yes that is this Thursday and I can't believe it! Actually, I can. I have been so overwhelmed by the thought of being a mother of two that I just want my little one to get here and put me to the test. I know that sounds horrible doesn't it? But besides being anxious in meeting my daughter and finally being a family of 4, I am anxious to see how I do as mother, wife, student and working woman. Will I be able to handle it all? I put too much pressure on myself, I know ...
