I cannot be the only one...who has written, edited, spell checked, and re-read a blog post only to hover their mouse over the publish button, unable to click and commit to publishing the post. I have gone through this to-publish-or-not-to-publish song and dance with a particular post I wrote recently more…Continue

It’s the use everything up week - ready for heading into Christmas and a world of cheese boards, cocktail sausages & mince pies!
Breakfast will be a choice of cereal, pancakes, bagels or fruit & yogurt - for fab breakfast ideas see our…
As the holiday season begins, I hope to teach my kids how important giving is. But reality kicks in about one hour after the Thanksgiving pie is eaten. Relatives start asking my kids, “What do you want for Christmas?” Any hope I had about teaching giving, not getting, is gone.
I finally decided to buckle down and start a new family tradition; one that takes our focus off the wish list and onto a giving list.
1. When the giving season begins, gather your family and together…Continue

When we were kids, the only method of solo transportation we had was a solid steel walker that looked like it should have come with its own pair of orthopedic shoes. Hell, for all WE know, my grandmother was working a little side deal with her podiatrist and using us as bait!…Continue

Once, when I was in tenth grade, my mother walked into the bathroom while I was showering to tell me that I had a phone call. She handed me the cordless phone through the shower curtain and laughed her way out of the bathroom. I told the caller (my friend Monica) that my mother was crazy and I would have to call her back.…Continue

If the roll is empty, change it. If it looks like it might be getting empty, change it. If you think that there may even be a remote chance that there are only two squares left, grab a new roll and (wait for it)... CHANGE it!
There's nothing quite like reaching over to find an empty roll of toilet paper after you've finished doing your business; but somehow it happens,…Continue

I cannot be the only one...who has realized that the end of another week in December only means seven days closer to Christmas, and that thought is making me break out in a cold sweat. I don't know about the rest of you, but my normal chores don't cease in the name of Christmas, meaning I haven't wrangled up any extra time to spend getting this holiday thing under control.…Continue

Writing fiction allows you to create chaos for your characters. I love it. In real life, I try not to create chaos for my children. Less chaos=fewer meltdowns=happiness for all.
But not for my characters. Watch out Thomas. You're in for it today.
I can't recall where I read this, otherwise I'd give full credit. But somewhere I learned about one way to make tension in your story.
I call it, And then what happened.
If you're character is walking to school,…Continue

I cannot be the only one....who thinks it is more ridiculous than it is cute when people try to couple up your child with another youngster. I know you've all heard it before as well, the "Oh look, those two really like each other," or "what a cute little couple they make," and I am sure, like me, you have smiled while nodding, but really the whole time your thinking how silly the suggestion is.…Continue

When I was in fourth grade, I remember watching Saturday morning cartoons with my younger brother while my mom would sleep late. In between these cartoon shows, ABC began airing these four-minute music videos by a Puerto Rican group of teenage boys who called themselves Menudo. While my brother would point and laugh at these dark-haired pre-pubescent boys wearing matching outfits, shaking their little hips and singing Spanish songs about shopping malls and…Continue
