All this go-go-go has me feeling like this lately

All this go-go-go has me feeling like this lately

I wish life had a pause button. Something that would allow me to take a breath when things are nonstop.

Since my first morning back from vacation, I feel like I’ve just been pushing forward, go-go-go, unable to gather my thoughts.

In addition to preparing for this weekend’s furniture move with Scott’s parents, I’ve been getting ready for some exciting news I’m announcing Friday.

One of the things that fell by the wayside was my blog reading – it’s been over a month since my last wrap-up. However, I made time on Saturday and Sunday to fix that.

Even if it was for only a few minutes, it was nice to get away into the Cleveland blog-o-sphere.

Remembering Dominic Cerino

#1  Before we get to the other posts on the list, Cleveland Foodie shared a beautiful remembrance of Cleveland chef Dominic Cerino who recently passed away.

In Ciao, Dominic Cerino, she writes about his cooking, his kindness and a recipe for short ribs to remember him by.

Family Fun in CLE

With Father’s Day this Sunday, here are a few ideas for your family:

Summer Reading List

Once it gets a little hotter, I’m looking forward to escaping to the beach with a book. Enjoy these summer reading suggestions:

#4  Cleveland Chick‘s Book Club: Heads in Beds

#5  Blog – The New Black‘s What I Read in May

Home Improvement

#6  As Scott and I redo a few more rooms in our house this summer, I love devouring design blogs and reading up on cool projects.  And with my love of roadtrips, I really heart I Heart Cleveland‘s Amelia: The Little “Glamper” that Could. You need to check out her nautical Airstream!

Of course, home improvement doesn’t stop at the house and there are times we need to do some renovations on ourselves:

#7  BEaLittleWeird asks and answers Is It Possible for Me to Stop Yelling at My Kids?. Check out his latest Dadstractions podcast for more discussion on the topic.

#8  Am I There Yet writes about the Crippling Nature of Fear and signing up for fitness bootcamp. I’ve been dealing with my own fears lately and found the quote at the top really helpful.

#9 On the blog Table for One, Monina Wagner shares How One Dog Changed My View on Humanity.

#10   Feeling run down? I know I already shared a post from Blog – The New Black, but her 3-ingredient Wellness Shot Recipe was too good to pass up.

Do you have any Cleveland-based blogs you’d recommend for future round-ups?

  1. Amanda, great to find your blog (and you – I’m with the Civic Commons and was tracking the #NCHarbor twitter hashtag and you were someone who has used it and then I wound up at your blog). I just spent about 10-15 mins tooling around it and I have to smile, repeatedly. I’m from an old guard of Cleveland bloggers – started in 2005, and there are several you’ve no doubt come across over time who go back to 2003, maybe even a bit before that. I don’t know if anyone else would be interested, but it might be fun for the Ohio Blogging Assn to have a History of NEO Blogging get-together sometime. I’d be happy to try and get some of my contemporaries to come too.

    What’s most remarkable to me is how non-political the blogs of 2013 NEO seem to be. It’s not even a category here. And yet in 2005, that’s a huge part of what was galvanizing the NEO blogging scene. Not everyone of course, but many of us.

    Anyway – thanks for pumping out the positive. My husband and I are also from the East Coast, I always thought I’d end up in DC, we met out here in grad school and just stayed. 25 years now! We love it and our oldest is now a sophomore at Case Western. Could not be happier, literally.

    Have a great week and glad I found this.

    • Jill, Thank you so much for the thoughtful comment. While I’ve read some of the older Cleveland blogs, I’d love to read more – if you have any suggestions, definitely let me know!

      I’ll reach out to you soon over email about a get-together. Good idea and sounds like fun!

  2. This is a great post! Thanks for doing it! I really enjoyed it.

  3. Thanks for the shout out! I’m slacking on my links posting. I need motivation, thanks for the boost!!

  4. I love reading wrap-ups because I always find new sites to visit, especially when they are local bloggers. There were quite a few “new-to-me” sites here that I’m excited to check out!

    Thanks for sharing the link to the father’s day events! I greatly appreciate it.


  5. Thanks for sharing my little Miss Amelia on your recap. Good luck to you on any future remodeling projects…they really take a lot out of ya! Cheers.

  6. Magnificent website. A lot of helpful info here. I am sending it to some pals ans also sharing in delicious.

    And obviously, thanks to your effort!

  7. It’s very effortless to find out any topic on web as compared to textbooks, as I found this article at this web site.

  8. I know this web site gives quality dependent content and
    extra information, is there any other web site
    which gives these kinds of stuff in quality?

  9. Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  10. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
    It will always be exciting to read content from other writers and use something from other

  11. Hey! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy
    reading your blog posts. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the
    same topics? Many thanks!

  12. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks

  13. Can I simply just say what a relief to find an individual who actually
    knows what they’re talking about online. You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More people must read this and understand this side of your story.

    I was surprised you aren’t more popular since you certainly possess the
