Tips For Getting Girls Into Sports

Would it surprise you to know that girls are twice as likely to drop out of sporting activities through their teenage years than boys? Or to realize that most young girls start engaging in organized sports up to two whole years later than boys? …

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…

"We are in the midst of moving. This would ease the stress of cooking during this. We were considering going to King's for turkey."

I am a 40-something wife and mom who lives in the outskirts of Pittsburgh, PA. I am always in a perpetual state of chaos or stress but still you gotta laugh. I've recently been thrown into the role of SAHM. Sixteen years ago that was my main goal in life. Nothing happens as you plan it though. I had been working full-time for 18 years and then I had to switch to part-time for the last 8 years. Now, in order to help my son, I've had to quit the work-force. Whoo hooo! Reality of it is though, I work from home. I help my husband with the administrative duties needed to keep his business running. Not to mention all the household stuff. My blog is a work in progress ('coz I don't really know what I'm doing) so if it looks different from time to time that is because I'm learning and growing, hope you won't mind. I want to run with the big dogs of blogging but cannot figure out how they find all that time to tweet, facebook, blog, attend functions and still maintain the role of wife and mother. Maybe their husbands do not work 12 hour days, I dunno. I'll figure it all out one day.

We have been having a really bad 2 months with my son who is 5. We have been very much against medicating him because we fear side-effects and the fact that there just isn't enough research out there to tell me that there will not be damage to his brain/body long-term. I could never forgive myself if I gave him the medicine and then something awful happened to him that was irreversible.

We have started him on some vitamin supplements that were recommended to us by and expert in… Continue

A Diva Lesson

Posted on February 6, 2009 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Today we had the unpleasant experience of letting Diva endure a life lesson.

You see, last night at bedtime she says to me that she will need me to get her sand (ah, yeah, sand) to take to school in the morning. She needs enough to cover the bottom of a shoe box about an inch, she says.

The funny thing was, that she said this in a way that she really expected this to take place, like there wasn't any rational explanation why it wouldn't work out. My mind is racing with… Continue

“Consider it pure joy, my friends, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything”. James 1:2-4

I’m considering how joyful I truly feel right now. Many of you know me and many of you don’t. Let me just say that I am an enigma to my friends and family. They are truly befuddled at the fact that I have endured and maintained my… Continue

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
