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!

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 (3)

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

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...

The Many Challenges of Working from Home...

Posted by Angela Caban on August 27, 2013 at 2:55 PM Comments comments (1)

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 (1)

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 scholar...

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...
