Redefining The Working Mom

Click here to edit subtitle


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!

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

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...

The Many Challenges of Working from Home...

It is a beautiful morning as I look out of the window of my office space. We have lived here for 2 years already and this has to be my favorite part of the house. A room that is for me and me only. Minus the small play area in the corner for my daughter, my office space is put together nicely, everything is always organized and in its place. This is the only way I can get work done.

My name is Angela Caban, and I work from home.

Why do I work from home?

End of the Road...

Posted by Angela Caban on July 3, 2013 at 2:25 PM Comments comments (0)

I can't believe I made it. I never doubted that I would, I guess I am just surprised at how fast the time passed. Just yesterday I was writing about the "Bumps in the Road" and today that road ends.

On June 28, 2013, I graduated with my Master's degree in Human Resources. Going back to school was a long journey that started with the activation of my husband's Army National Guard unit, and ended with him safely home and now on a "temporary" break from serving his country.

Recently, the Department of Education decided to do away with the subsidized portion of loans for graduate students. This news hit me like a ton of bricks, and I had to find out what other options were available to me. Would I need additional funding? Would I qualify for a grant or perhaps a scholarship? Unfortunately, grants are not an option for graduate students and th...

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?

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 ...

Moved in and ready to roll!

The past few weeks have been hell. No that is not me being dramatic, it literally was HELL! Between moving, writing, attending the 2011 MilBlog conference and finals - my life has been turned upside down and I have had many teary nights.

But now all is settled and I am slowly getting back into the swing of things. We are so happy in our new home as well as our state. I feel as if the past 2 years in our old home were a blur because we were not happy being there. One of ...
