Coach Bags

What is the fasination with Coach bags these days? Anyone and everyone seems to be carrying a coach bag. Are these bags really that fabulous? Are they worth the $ 500.00? I myself have always bought a bag that catches my eye and use it till it is unusable then start the search for a new one. Last winter I did step outside of this pattern and had to have a purple purse. I found the one that I loved and again used it till it died! On average I go through a bag a season but I have had a few that will last for a few years. I just can't bring myself to paying $ 500.00 for a bag, even though I know it is something I carry everyday. Is this wrong? Yet..... more and more I find myself drawn to the coach bags!!! I want one!!! Should I break down and find the one for me or not??

OK here's a rant!!! lol Why do stay at home Mom's think they have the hardest job going?? I am a working Mom who is away from the home on average 10.5 hours per day. Luckily the family car pools so an hour of that time we are travelling and can converse on our days without much interuption. Beyond the 10.5 hours per day I am also a hockey Mom which occupies more then a few hours a couple of times a week. I also have to prepare lunches, cook meals, help with homework, do laundry and keep the house clean and in order. When is the Mommy time??? I know numerous stay at home Moms, of which a few have cleaning ladies. These are always the Moms that complain that they are sooo tired and have no time to themselves. Seriously???? When you try to explain to them that they are very lucky to have what they have and be able to stay home, they just don't get it. Have you ever tried to explain to a stay at home Mom that their life is easy compared to most (the working Moms)??? It just doesn't work. I myself am not the stay at home type and love being busy and being a working Mom. I just get tired of hearing from the stay at home Moms how hard their lives are! They need to take a hard look at the average Mom! Any whoo, enough of a rant for today.

Back to it!

Well yesterday was the first day of the new year back to reality! phew Glad that day is over! It is funny how you always think of the New Year as a fresh start and then we had back to reality and the same old same old returns. Wake up early to rush around and get everyone out the door with proper lunches, backpacks etc. Work the entire day then had back home to think about dinner, homework help and the usual household duties. I think this will be the year I take on something new!!!! I have often thought of joining a gym or a fitness class but hate the thoughts of starting something new alone! :( Maybe I will take up a craft or something?? I need some ideas??? Help me think of something that will change the boring day to day we have become use to!

Happy 2010

Well it was a wild and crazy night! Just as I wanted! We ended up with extra guests and gain a few kids and partied the night away. Our dinner was amazing and then we headed to the bar in the basement for the fun to begin. Who doesn't enjoy a party with dancing on the bar and sparklers inside the house??? Ok maybe things got a little out of hand! lol But the pictures are so hilarious! It was a great start to a new year! Here's hoping the fun and festivities continue!

All the best to everyone for 2010!!
