Note: I’ve been trying to publish this post for WEEKS, but between school vacation, sick kids, sick mommy and snow days, time has NOT been on my side. A couple weeks ago, for Valentine’s Day weekend, my boyfriend and I went to York Beach, Maine, for some much needed R&R. After all the stress we’ve been under in recent months, we figured...

I don’t know about all of you, but we experienced some great moments and some rough ones in 2013.

Last year, my husband, now ex, took my daughter to Scarborough Downs for their haunted hayride. She loved it. We had contemplated taking her to Destination Haunt here in Lebanon where we live but we decided it may be a bit much for our daughter based on reports we’d heard from others who had taken their kids. ...

This past weekend my parents and I took the kids to the Zach’s Corn Maze in York since it was my weekend to keep the kidlets. Every other weekend their father picks them up at about 1pm on Saturdays and keeps them until 5-7pm on Sundays. I try and find something fun to do with the kids when they stay home with me. It’s not always possible but I try. Based on their reactions, I’m pretty sure they had a blast at the corn maze.   When we arrived at the farm, we rode in a wagon bed down to the corn maze. (That’s...
