Continued, unexplained weight loss
Headaches, often with early morning vomiting
Increased swelling or persistent pain in bones, joints, back, or legs
Lump or mass, especially in the abdomen,… Continue

My 9 year old daughter informed our dinner companions last night that I have a "dark side."
Despite the fact that it's true, I was alarmed that my daughter picked up on it. Of course, my sister and cousin were hysterical laughing and pointing fingers at me. I told them to "shut-up."
Does a 9 year old even know what a dark side is? And if so, when did she see it? Did she see me scratch my nose with my middle finger at some old lady who cut us off the other day? Did she… Continue

We added a new member to our family yesterday, a German Shepard puppy. My husband and I are very partial to the shepards. Our last one we lost to a tumor about a year and a half ago. Our kids have been begging for another dog. We are so busy I do not know how we can add another item on our plate. But we will do it for our kids.
Studies have shown that children who grow up on a farm or with animals actually have less allergies. I think there is also something to be said about the… Continue

Today I was reminded of what childhood carefree abandon felt like.
As I watched my boys frolic in the water in the hot hot sun with their friends I was transported back to my childhood.
It didn't start out that way. With Aunty Stacy at the top of the water slides, I positioned myself at the splash pool at the foot of the slides. On the lookout for anything or anyone that could cause any harm to come to our group of boys. But as the time wore on, and… Continue

Right now I am reading a book called: You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. I love this book very much. I came across a very intresting message: I open myselfto the wisdom within, knowing that there is only One Intelligence in this Universe. Out of this One Intelligence comes all the answers, all the solutions, all the healings, all new creations. I trust this Power and Intelligence, knowing that whatever I need to know is revealed to me, and whatever I need comes to me in the right time,… Continue

I haven’t been a blogger for very long, really. Sixty posts to be exact. Very short career so far, however I’ve come to see that there are two kinds of bloggers out here:
1. The bloggers who write to share, vent and keep an online diary. Maybe make a few friends along the way. Get some creative ideas or insight. Be a part of a community of intelligent and diverse women.
2. The blogger who is more of a “get as many followers as I can by giving away lots of stuff”. They get… Continue

I am no perfect parent. In fact, I'll be the first to admit that I am FAAAAAAAARRRRR from being a good parent.
My kids play Nintendo too much, they Youtube too much, they don't read, are lazy beyond WORDS!!! I don't spend enough time with them and I'm not too good with mind games and chess. They don't go for tuition enough and they CAN get better grades in school if I pushed them enough.
These past couple of… Continue
