So close ... to being famous on Amazon

For just a few minutes there, I was almost famous. I was so close.

See, I called up my book, Death on Deadline, on its Amazon page to see if I had any more reviews posted (I have a few pending) and my jaw dropped in amazement.

There, right by MY book, my hard-scrabble indie little baby, was an Amazon seal of approval. YES! It was right there! It was GOLD! And it said "Best of 2011 So Far." Really? Seriously?

I did my traditional seated happy…

Things To Be Happy About Today

While it hopefully came across as humorous, my last couple of blogs were too negative as I'm wasting too much (of my precious few) brain cells worrying about the crazy neighbor. So today, lets be positive and be thankful for a few things.

 

1) As its Wednesday, its swim meet night in our town and probably countless thousands of other towns.  Today and for the next several Wednesdays, I'm beyond thrilled my kids are NOT doing swim team.  I know you get free lessons and they get…

My Handmade Hospital Gown

This past week I started (and finished) a sewing project which I just had to share with you! I made my own labour gown for when I go to the hospital to have this baby!
A few months ago, I had discovered online a variety of beautiful labour & delivery gowns for sale. When I saw the price I decided against such an investment. I would love to wear something cute on the day our baby is born, but realistically, having been through birth before, I thought the odds of a gown…

A Perfect Getaway - Movie Review

Where did you go on your honeymoon? Was it someplace tropical with soft white sand and tall fruity rum drinks? You are having a wonderful time enjoying the scenery, being together and occasionally conversing with others. Did you meet another couple and end up chatting with them? "A nice couple", you think. Think again. WOW! I am so glad I went to Disney world for my honeymoon.

 

Directed by David Twohy, Rouge, 2009. Starring Steve…

Con Air

This past weekend, Elliott and I flew to Boston for the weekend.  For the most part, it was an uneventful trip. 

If you’ve flown lately, you know what a hassle air travel has become.  There are the security lines, the overbooked flights, and the testy airline employees.  With a cancelled flight out of Kansas City, air traffic control issues in Chicago, and weather delays in Boston, it took us 13 hours to get to Boston, but only five hours to get home.

Mommy On A Budget: Lotus ORGANIC Cosmetics

 

So I talked about Totsy.com a few weeks ago. It's a fantastic website where you can sign up for great deals for your family. Seriously, the deals are awesome. I went on there again today just to check it out and I saw that they are having a sale on Lotus Cosmetics starting in 30 days. What really caught my attention is that this line of make-up is USDA certified organic. I don't know about you but my skin reacts to anything harsh I put on it and I've been on the look out for a good…

I'm a Weed

I have a weed problem. I can't keep up with them. They are running rampant through my flower beds. Every day there are more. Each time I pull them, they seem to come back bigger, and stronger. Aggravating, they are.

But...

I'm like a weed, though.

I'm not welcome in the carefully tended beds.

Finish I'm a Weed here

Do You Love A Happy Ending?

 think if you really enjoy doing something and you really get out of it what you put in, that you should carry on and enjoy yourself in the process. Well that something for me, is blogging. I guess I'm a little addicted to it. Some might say I'm obsessed with it. Especially my husband and my sister, neither of whom understand blogging at all.

Awkward Aspie Moments @ McDs

Oh… boy this one both embarrassed me and made me mad.

 

We were at McD’s about 7mos back, right before we got on our GF kick. And the boys were being their loud, but happy selves, when a worker started sweeping under their feet. A little annoyed because they were eating, and that kinda of distraction, well makes them stop eating.

 

This young man had no hands, but had 1 thumb on each numb. I know that sounds cruel, but it’t the truth. And I he was…

From one Aspie son to his Aspie father....

Ok, most of you know my hubby has Aspergers too. I try to avoid writing too much about him. Not because I don’t care, it’s just well I spend most of my days being a mom. I really should, Ian is amazingly brilliant and oh so funny. I love it.

Last night, he was having a man-trum… well maybe not quiet a man-trum… but he was complaining.  I was just looking at him and eating my dinner. Thinking to myself, “yeh well they need to learn to wipes the butts better, or lift the seat up, and…
