After I received the lovely email from my husband about the water heater being ready to burst, we decided to shut off the hot water for the rest of the evening until the repairman could come out and fix it.
Anna and I decided to go to my parent's house which is about 40 minutes
away and eat dinner and take our baths for the evening.
The spicy smells of Italian cooking on the stove tickled my nose as we walked in to my parent's house. Anna… Continue

You're feeling sorry for yourself.
Your (fill in the part of your body) hurts, you've got a meeting you're not looking forward to, you cheated on your diet, you had an argument with someone close to you, you're looking for work, or perhaps, like me, you've got a deadline to meet and you're stressing out whether you'll finish on time.
So what better time than, now, to shift to a positive attitude. After all, "A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than… Continue

Many would argue that the first 5-years of life are the most developmentally important years in a persons life, both physically and mentally. Of course, as adults, we continue to grow and develop and become the teachers of the younger generation. The earlier argument is based on the idea that no matter how much education and experience you gain as adults, there is something about the teachings from those first years that have been imprinted on our DNA and is difficult to alter.

We announced our top picks today of the top green toys. We had a wider selection of toys to review this year (a good thing)...many did not make our list. It's not enough to be green--they also had to be something our kid testers wanted to play with! Take a look at those that were a hit (www.toyportfolio.com

The Sand Man
I think the Sand Man is lost. I think he headed this way when me moved, got lost in the trees and gave up. I do not think he has made an attempt since. I am exhausted. The victim of a teething baby who thinks that 2 - 4am is an appropriate play time. A three year old who thinks that just because she has an hour nap at school, she is done for the day. And a four year old who thinks that being up late is "super cool".
I would like anyone who knows the… Continue

Running out of ideas for your kids’ school lunches? Nobody wants to eat the same lunch day after day. That’s why LEFTOVERS are a perfect idea for lunch.

Finding the time to plan and pack the perfect lunch can be a challenge for most families. School… Continue

Set up, for yourselves highway markers, make for yourself
guideposts; turn your thoughts and attention to the way by which you
went into exile. Retrace your steps, O Virgin Israel, return to these
cities., Jeremiah 31:21
...don't look back over your life with
regret and pity...get down to the knitty gritty...of it. Backtrack and
rewind...replay the choices you made in your mind. Dissect each and
every one of… Continue

Once upon a time, I lived in Fargo, ND, that cold, windy, desolate place with an Academy Award winning movie named after it. Tom’s first job out of college took us to this unthinkably isolated part of the country. I remember the day he received the phone call informing us where we would be moving. We were hoping for St. Louis, or Savannah, GA.… Continue

I am my mothers, still, I am very much my grandmothers child. I was willed this sense that elders are our angels on earth. I would walk behind my grandmother in the pouring rain carrying an umbrella if asked.
