How did you spend your New Year's Eve? We took our three girls to dinner at their favorite Chinese restaurant, and then searched in vain for an ice cream parlor. They finally had to settle on a box of Neopolitan from Walgreens, but the kids didn't mind. Once they were at home, the youngest settled down in front of the Disney Channel for their year end marathon, the sixteen year old locked herself up in her room to watch another marathon, and the oldest went to a friend's house for a party.… Continue

On the hottest day of the summer thus far, with fires raging a few miles away, the sky is raining soot. Since we are nearing the end of the summer, and I have been in lock down with Thing One and Thing Two, while trying to work in my cave of privacy, it seems we are all at wits end. I have run out of tasks for them to do, they are sick of sweeping the floors, writing letters to Santa, and scrubbing the bath tub. So they have taken to fisticuffs. Though playful, someone always gets hurt. Not… Continue

On this New Year's Eve many people will be asked what their New Year's resolutions will be. Some will say to lose weight, quit smoking or nothing at all.
I’m not a big fan of resolutions. I never have been. When I come across things that I am telling myself that I can’t do then I just want to do them even more. So I’ve decided to set goals this year for myself instead....

What kind of luck is it that there is only 8 weeks left in our pregnancy and we are just now finding out about this free pregnancy journal. We ended up buying a couple of different journals around week 20 of our pregnancy so we could fill out parts along the way before we forgot the details (it's almost completed now minus the birth). Never the less, we… Continue

My Dad is dying of prostate cancer.
It's a frustrating fact that I've known for some time, but the desire to be sad about it became even more intense two days ago when I called to check in on him and his hospice nurse told me that he was so deeply drugged with Morphine that at this point, he has about a couple of days to live.
There are obstacles to me rushing to my Dad's bedside. Read… Continue

My mom carried me for 10 months, and I was born with an open spine. The doctors told my mom if my spine wasn't healed by the time I was 3 years old they would need to operate. My mom was so upset and went home and called her church, and asked them to pray for God to heal me, and God answered their prayers. I was healed and I didn't have to have surgery. The doctors said it was a miracle!

It took me two years of searching for help on graphics.
I got a lot of ideas, but nobody could do what I wanted.
I learned from ideas, but most of all I learned from mistakes.
If you want help on the basics I think I can help.
No cost. Just trial and tribulations!
Contact me if you are just starting and don't have a graphic and
are not sure how to make it your own. I think I can help at No cost!!

I'm sitting on the couch at 3:52 in the afternoon. The kids and my husband are off in my room playing some game on the PS3. I'm pretty sure I can hear the laundry calling out my name every once in a while. It is cold and rainy outside so the house is darker than normal. I'm curled up with a blanket off of my 4 year old's bed. In less than 2 days it will be 2010. It seemed like when I was a teenager - in THE 80's (gasp) - the thought of 2010 brought on… Continue

I had a difficult time this Christmas when people asked what they could get for Munch. She's REALLY into drawing, coloring, and writing right now and I ended up getting her lots of art supplies- coloring books, fat & bright colored pencils, some fun, decorated tape-
isn't it cute? I always felt so badly for her because our main work space is a train table with lid. I'd find… Continue

I'm pretty proud of myself for getting to 340 subscribers. I think one of my goals for 2010 will be to double that number. I need to get savvy about drawing readers in and keeping them. Also planning to increase my Technorati number and followers.
And I plan to do all this without letting my blog take over my life.

We were given this list of questions and answers during our last prenatal class, Breathing & Relaxation. We thought you might find them as humorous as we did.
Q: I'm two months pregnant now. When will the baby movie?
