How To Help A Friend Who Is an Addict

One of the most devastating things that can happen to any family is substance abuse in any form. Anything in excess is never good for anyone. That could be anything from too much food, exercise, alcohol or even shopping. Addictive behaviors can turn relationships upside down for those who…

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm a homeschooling mom of two great kids. I enjoy gardening, reading, cooking and decorating--- and a clean house (although I don't enjoy the cleaning part!)

I blog what's on my mind. Sometimes it may be the kids, the garden, a recipe, a top ten list or a rant. I'm strengthened by what I blog because it helps me sort my feelings, frustrations, triumphs and ah-ha moments.
I have been blogging since...

Thinking About the Summer

Posted on May 18, 2010 at 11:46am 0 Comments

I'm thinking about the summer....dreaming of July 1, when mine really starts (last day of work!) But just as soon as I start turns into a nightmare...You know. It goes something like this:

We sleep in a little later, eat a leisure breakfast, do a few chores, play outside before the blistering temperatures get the best of us. Then we eat lunch, read a little....and then........WHAT?

What I learned at my garage sale

Posted on May 16, 2010 at 4:26pm 0 Comments

As stated previously I hosted a garage sale on Friday. Here are a few things I learned:

1. When you say your sale starts at means your sale starts at 6:30am.

2. Price all the kids clothes at 25 cents and they will sell.

3. Live on the corner....ideal for garage sale traffic

4. Older women who like flowers, might stop and ask if they can dig some up....or perhaps nearly fall into your pond in order to get the right colored water… Continue

Tomorrow I am scheduled to have a garage sale. I opened my big mouth and set the date....and invited friends to join me so now I HAVE to do it. Funny thing is that I could really care less about selling anything...I really just enjoy hanging out with my friends. But as I was scanning the closets for things outgrown, worn out or rarely used I came across a few things that I thought twice about giving up. The sweet dress, the old toy, the unread book, the old purse....sometimes you just want to… Continue

Favorite Mom Moments

Posted on May 8, 2010 at 4:39pm 0 Comments

In honor of Mother's Day I'd like to list my top mommy-moments (so far):

1. The birth of both my kids.....incredibly different since one was full term and one was at 27 weeks...but they both rank right up there as a couple of the most beautiful moments in my life.

2. Savannah's first smile

3. Tucker's first round of stitches...and then second round 10 days later!

4. The fact that Tucker (4yo) still wants to "snuggle up" first thing in the morning

5.… Continue
