Think of Me as Steven Covey's Go-To Girl

An excerpt of a post on using "highly effective communication skills" to get my baseball glove back from a guy who just doesn't want to cooperate.



...Having authored several New York Times best sellers on effective communication — How to Win Friends and Influence People with the Overuse of Vowels; How to Talk to People So They Give Your Stuff Back; How to Stop Obsessing and Start Living; The 7 Habits of Highly, Highly, Highly Effective People; and… Continue

This Is What I Signed Up For

When the stresses of Motherhood become more then you can handle, where do you find refuge? Some might take a long bath when the husband gets home or hand the kids off and go for a run. Some might steal a moment to read the Bible to draw strength from The Almighty, while others will turn to drinking, perhaps to wash away their thoughts. I myself find it difficult to do any of these. Why, you might ask? Well, I’ll tell you why…



First of all, the most obvious choice would be drink… Continue

Can't we all just get along???

I was just looking through some posts on a site for Moms that I am a member of and thought "this is supposed to be a place for moms to connect and get support from?" I won't use the name of the site but I am seriously thinking of leaving the page.This site is supposed to be about connecting, supporting, freedom for moms to vent, meet others who are like you and just chat about being a Mom and Mom things. I have noticed the last few days, there is very little support in the forums.

I think… Continue

Horrible Memory at the age of 26

I swear I have no memory at all. Acutally I think the problem is that I try to do to much at one time and forget the smaller things. Like this website and my page here. Completely forgot I had one until I tried to make a new one and it told me I already had one. How is that for silly.



What gets me is I can remember the most random things. Like a movie from when I was 10, but I can't tell you the name of that I can't tell you what I did two weekends ago. Maybe it is the curse of being… Continue

How Your Way of Thinking Can Affect Your Success

Have you been trying to promote your business, but no one seems interested in what you have to say? Has there ever been a time, when you thought that you couldn't possibly be successful in an online business? Did you ever wonder if maybe it was your thinking that was preventing you from being successful? "Limited Thinking will get you Limited Income." If you think positive thoughts and envision things happening for you, then it really is possible to get what you want.



So many times,… Continue

Let's Talk Healthcare & Unemployment

The past Thursday marked the culmination of a very exciting 10 days at MyWorkButterfly.com. The "Nick Lachey Dream Dinner Date Charity Auction" pulled in $10,600! Thank you to those who bid in an effort to raise money for VH1 Save The Music Foundation and its mission to keep music education in America's public schools. Please know that we are mindful to those who did not have the financial means to turn this opportunity into a reality. Our mission was two-fold: to raise money and to generate… Continue

Favorite Halloween Memory

As part of Etsy bloggers, I have to blog on certain subjects each month. This month being October the subject matter is Halloween.



Without having to think about my favorite Halloween memory is of the Chainsaw Murderer. My friends and I were trick or treating and we came to a house at the end of the street. Nice house with a beautiful landscape area sitting right in the middle of the yard. We approached the house and got our treat (pencils) and as we were leaving the guy asked if we… Continue

Newborn Cloth Diaper Review

Emery is our first little one to have a fluffy bum from birth. I chose to go with mostly fitteds and covers for the newborn stage. I also ordered some all-in-ones for this stage. I love the fitted option for a newborn! Those explosive newborn poos never leaked with our fitteds and covers. If the poo somehow managed to make it out of the fitted, which was rare, it was still trapped in the cover. So, no up-the-back-and-into-the-hair poo messes with Emery. And his little bum was oh-so-adorable!… Continue

Life

How much of what we put out into the universe is true to who we are as humans?





It seems to me that life is like that of a work of theatre. You have your opening act, birth. You make your way front and center and become the one person that everyone pays attention to. As you grow you realize that people stop paying attention to every little detail that is your life. You start to become a diva as you enter toddlerhood. Constantly learning but struggling to stay the… Continue

A Word of thanks

Saying Thanks.







When someone does something for you so amazing, how do you say thank you? How can you possibly use two words that have become so over used in today's society, when it means so much more than just a simple thank you.



I am very grateful for the friendships that I have in life. Only because I don't honestly have that many. I have people who I talk to and would go have supper with now and then, but true friendships, I can literally count on the… Continue

Out of the closet!

OUT OF THE CLOSET!



No, not the broom closet LOL But the guys at work officially know that I am a surrogate, and they are cool with it. THANK FREAKING GOD! I feel like a weight has been lifted some. I was worried about the reaction as many of the people I work with on the dock are really close minded. And I literally had to explain the process because they had no idea it was possible to do that. SO yea, tells you how close minded they are.



But now that its out I feel like I… Continue

Mommy What is heaven?

Mommy, What is Heaven?



For the last two years, I have been dreading this moment in time. My five-year old asked me with a curious look in his eye. My mind raced, my heartbeat sped up. What do I say? How do I answer that question?



On Monday, September 21st, 2009, my husband lost his last grandfather to heart failure. We told the children that he died. They know what death is and are somewhat okay with the idea. They understand it when bugs and animals die, but they have… Continue

Top 10 Reasons You Couldn't PAY Me to Have Another Kid

This post could very well get me unfollowed on Twitter. Mommy bloggers all over are going to read this (this assumes, of course, that I have that many readers) and say "See? It's women like that who don't deserve a child." Look, I'm just one of those women who knows her limitations. I have one very awesome daughter and absolutely no wish to roll that particular set of dice again. Nope. I know when to fold and walk away from the table. And don't ask me about these gambling metaphors either.… Continue

We Attended the World Breastfeeding Challenge

When I heard about the World Breastfeeding Challenge, scheduled for October 3, I immediately knew I wanted to go. I’m up for a challenge! All over the world mothers would unite and latch on their children at the same time — what a great idea to promote breastfeeding! So Landon and I drove to the White Plains, New York, location, which was Full Circle Family Care. I told him there would be a lot of babies, and since he loves babies, he was all exited.



I was proudly sporting my “Yes,… Continue

I'm dreaming of a white.......halloween??!

I am sitting in my living room listening to the wind whip everything that isn't nailed down around. I really hope nothing goes through our living room windows!lol.

Dare I say winter is upon us and the warm weather is just a memory that will have to keep us warm for the next five months.

All summer you hear people complaining about how hot it is, how unbearable the heat is, blah blah blah. Now the cold has arrived and a new wimper will be heard around Alberta. "It's too cold, is it… Continue

Don't Cry For Me Argentina, You Whore

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
