Women Dreams vs. Men Dreams



Men probably dream about racing a car or making money or traveling all around (for free) while women (me, generally speaking) dream about falling off the edge of a plank, losing a loved one, getting trapped in a place that I am unfamiliar with and, more recently, dreamed that buildings were crumbling like crackers all around me...and I stood on the only last remaining solid building in the whole...whatever that was.



Things changed for… Continue

Pumpkin Patch!

When we went up to Pismo a couple weekends ago not only did Easy get to ride a horse, we also visited one of my favorite pumpkin patches. It was pretty much a weekend to kick start Fall. It was the first weekend of cooler weather, bonfires, pumpkin pie, first fire in the fire place of the season, and visit to the pumpkin patch! Such festive fall family fun!!! OMG...check out Easy at this farm last year HERE! Such a little sweet guy!…

Juggling Work & Kids, Is It Possible?

As a freelancer there are terribly long stretches of time when I’m not working and others when I’m working like a banchee. Most recently I missed my girls first day of school while I was away for work. (Continue)

Umm, Should I Be Scared? And Wow Do I Need To Monitor What My Kids Watch A Lot Better!

Ok, so here’s the deal. I’m not exactly as vigilant as I should be about what my kids watch. I tend to watch something, get seriously into it, and then when it’s too late, notice my kids are with me watching it, and it is TOTALLY inappropriate. Bad news. Well, this bad habit has come back to bite me in the ass in a somewhat disturbing, yet totally hilarious way. %

Here is a pic of my son’s latest homework assignment, front and back.…

Mommyhood Moment-You Need a Bigger Mom to Use the Racecar Grocery Cart

I have had fun comments about this blog entry. Here is the link Mommyhood Moment-You Need a Bigger Mom to Use the Racecar Grocery Cart



I have tried to use the racecar grocery cart. It is the most unyielding thing to try to push down the aisle of a store. JDaniel was placed in one at Home Depot once and ever since then he has pointed to them frantically as we enter the… Continue

The Step Sanctuary

I belong to a few social networking sites like this one, and I am often asked about where stepparents can go for support. I created The Step Sanctuary to fill that void. It is a 4-week facilitated support group that meets via conference call once a week.

To learn more and to sign up, please check out my website at http://www.blackwellfamilyresources.com/step_sanctuary

But hurry, space is limited!

No Girls Allowed

I won’t say the name of this organization because then I can speak more freely, but there was a meeting last night that my son and husband attended. It was a meeting for kids. Boys only, to be specific. While I say this with complete and utter respect, compassion and understanding, women and girls have no place at these meetings. Trust me. [more HERE]

For You...Four Movie Passes

As you know I’m not real big on the give away thing. I just don’t have it in me to ask someone tweet, retweet, post, follow, add a button, blah, blah, blah and then tally up points.

HOWEVER, I was sent a package to pass along to my readers. Here’s what the promotion is about (And yes, there is a “for you” part to this.):





General Mills wants to send you and your family to the movies for free and here’s how! You can receive a free… Continue

The Road Kill List

As I am sure it is apparent by now, I like to get good deals – and I enjoy it even more if I can get things for free. But, believe it or not, even I have my limits. There are just some lines I will not cross, and I know the perfect story to tell you to demonstrate this fact.



When my husband, Rob, and I had been married for about 3 or 4 months, we were living in Manhattan, Kansas. Rob was in the Army, stationed at Ft. Riley, a post located about 30 minutes away from our… Continue

Now That All The Windows Are Closed - Homemade Reed Diffusers: How-To & Tips

Homemade Reed Diffusers: How-To & Tips

Reed diffusers are decorative air fresheners for the home that work with scented oils and reeds. The oil travels up the reeds to release their fragrance into the air around them. No need to use aerosol sprays, light candles or plugin air fresheners, the process handles itself naturally.



They’re very popular since you can choose from an endless amount of fragrances, have no open flames…

Scheduling blog posts ahead of time

One of the cardinal rules of blogging is to be consistent with how often you post. Whether you post several times a day, a once a week, or even once a month, its important to be consistent. So what do you do if you know you are going to be away from your computer for a few days or weeks and don't want your readers to miss an update? Schedule them in advance!



Most blogging platforms allow you to create drafts of posts and schedule them for later publication. You can usually find this… Continue

If I Could Do it All Over Again

Even though it’s a rainy day, I want to take a drive out to Ohio farm country, specifically to drive by our old house. I expect it to look the same — a little, two-bedroom farmhouse surrounded by mature trees. I had to have that house when I saw the 200-year old shagbark hickories and enormous oaks, the woods, the barn, the long cement driveway lined with peony bushes, the bird houses atop posts planted along the creek that divided our property from a soy field, farmed by a man who goes by the… Continue

It's Just Me and SuperFutureDad... For Now

I am having the “baby jones’.” Much like an addict, it’s this uncontrollable urge to want to have a baby. In college, the ‘baby jones’’ crept in like clockwork twice a year. It was easy to push aside. “I'm too young/selfish/adventurous/immature/single”', I'd tell myself.



Now, I’m jonesing for a baby fix constantly; it shows no signs of slowing. Many of my previous issues are resolved. I have no more valid excuses. It’s time.



At least, I think it is. I am 30-years-old and… Continue

This is Lovely, But...

I have people send me this link regularly:





I’m always so chuffed when people take the time to forward something that might be of interest to me. Have a look – this clip is a beauty. A lovely teenager with autism gets his chance on the basketball court and absolutely shines – elevated to hero status by his supportive peers cheering him on. It is truly moving.



It also annoys the crap out of me.



When I see this clip, it makes me want to… Continue

The Halloween Treaty and Glampire Selah, Not



For the past nine years my daughter, Selah and I have lived a peaceful life abiding by our Halloween treaty until now. This year we both find ourselves at an impasse, and neither party wants to concede or compromise. But I’m the Queen Bee of Kingdom Stewart, so by default what I say goes. Yet, as a parent I find myself mulling over the situation. I want Selah to understand why Halloween—rather the unHalloweening-- matter to the Kingdom and to her.… Continue
