Yesterday was a great day. (Not really, but for purposes of this post, it was fantastic) I finally had a meeting with the director of the organization, Friends of Seniors, where I'll be volunteering to drive senior citizens to their doctor appointments, or grocery shopping or wherever. Plus, I got my first "assignment" which was pretty exciting. (Omg...when I re-read that sentence, as noble as it may sound....dude...I'm a freaking loser) Anyway, the other thing that made it fantabulous was the… Continue

Here are some truisms about “starving artists:”
- Most artists will indeed continue to produce work throughout their lives whether or not they ever receive payment, sufficient compensation, or recognition for his or her work, simply because they want to.

Did you know that your children are sometimes your mirrors? They come into this world to teach us something about ourselves? What does your child teach you about yourself?
My daughter taught me determination, persistance and perseverence. My 4 year old daughter is a very independant child. She wants to do everything by herself and she will try and try and try until she will succeed. Sometimes she will get frustrated when she tries to button a shirt or some pants, but she will persist until… Continue

I had a big carton of buttermilk left over in my refrigerator from a recipe I tried recently- what it was, I don't even remember now... but with the little chill in the air, thought I'd whip up a hot batch of biscuits. My go-to recipe has always been Fannie Farmer's baking soda biscuits

So here we are at another October page on the calender. As most of you know this is the month that changed my family’s life for the better and the worse. Julia was diagnosed 5 years ago this month and we are looking back from this place where we are now, in awe. Julia is still doing well and is almost 7 months out of treatment this time. We are beyond happy but never relieved. This past few weeks has brought many declarations of bad news in our little… Continue

Your son just turned 2 and you feel it's time to enroll him in a daycare setting where he can socialize with other children. You decided to look at the 5 closest schools to your home.

I have wrapped up my maternity leave and am now enjoying my official Mabel duties. One of these duties includes overseeing the Sales Department, which is kind of funny since I almost killed a sales guy this week.
The other evening I was nagged by the sound of a faint knock at our door. I was just starting all the bedtime routines and it was a particularly challenging evening since daddy-o was out of town.
I ignored the nagging knocking as long as possible then finally… Continue

Benjamin Franklin is remembered for a plethora of great things, ranging from his ability to rise in the world as a printer to his inventions to his role in the formation of our country. In The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, Franklin writes of how he came to create his Thirteen Values in order to live a virtuous and productive life. His eleventh value, "chastity," carried the notation, "Rarely use venery but for health or offspring; Never to dullness, weakness, or the injury of your own or… Continue

At 15, most of Jason’s friends had dropped out of school. At 17, Jason was thinking about dropping out, too. He found himself sitting in school suspension in October of his senior year of high school for skipping too many days of school. He plotted his escape by telling the teacher he wanted to check out the colleges who were recruiting students in the gymnasium that day. Jason wasn’t interested in college. This was just a way to get out of suspension. The first booth he came to was a Marine… Continue

Let's face it, being "Momalicious" isn't easy. Some days I look in the mirror and say "how the heck did I get here!?" Some might think "what's the big deal?" But if you see what I see looking back at me in the mirror you'd understand. I'm not proud of it but I can go weeks without tweezing my brows or waxing my hair lip.
