What a day it has been! Today marks the one year anniversary since Julia’s last chemotherapy treatment. I am so excited that this day was able to be marked in a significant, though not loud celebratory, way. Thanks to Carolinas Healthcare Foundation, I was able to get the website up for… Continue

I went to my 11th Zumba class last night a little discouraged. I was talking with one of my co-workers yesterday about how my body had not changed – AT ALL. What’s going on?

I believe the battle of mathematics in the Beck household is now over *for now anyway*. When homeschooling it's all about trial and error and sometimes more error. Then you will hit a speed bump and stare at your child wondering "Am I doing the right thing?"…

I have always eyed the quality, visual and beautiful clothing on
Zutano. I am one of those people that would go online and just go
through clothes I wish I could get other than those I get at the
stores. And sometimes I do but was I tickled, when I got a pair of
gorgeous Zutano wears for my one year old daughter? Oh yeah. It was a
great moment for me. I couldn’t wait to feel the texture, and try it on
her. And I am here to tell you the God honest truth. The colors… Continue

Well the Day is upon us, are you getting pinched today or are you pinch proof and wearing green? If not then it might be a little too late but if you're anything like me you're always seeing ideas and saving them for planning for the next year so this is my little posts of ideas to do next year for St Patrick's Day.
I really wanted to make these to take to the monkey's class today but she's been home sick with a virus and well momma did good to make her a bow so… Continue

Are you like me and have a favorite coffee cup? I have a few that rank in order of my fondness for them. Our coffee mug shelf is made up of a mish-mash of different cups. There is a set of matching mugs with roosters painted on them, but they rank far down on my Fondness List. And then there are mugs that have different purposes. Some mugs are used for tea,… Continue

I received my first piece of hate mail the other day. It was from my friend's spouse. She may not hate me, but she really does not like me. A fact that became abundantly clear the other day. I sent a valentine picture of the girls addressed to both of them. I thought it was more respectful this way. I guess I was wrong. She sent it back with a note that said
I will never be phony with you. I do not like you.
I will admit - it was a gutsy move, one I wouldn't have… Continue

Hey everyone! It has been wayyyy too long since I have posted anything.
I've had busy 2 weeks. Between a wedding, having family in town, and the 3rd cord for my laptop dying (That could be a whole other post!) I've
been slacking on my blogging duties. So here is an update on whats been going on.
Last week I discovered that the baby making Gods didn't have it in the stars for me to get pregnant this month. I am disappointed, to say the least. I really… Continue

“There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.” ~ Deepak Chopra
Of all virtues a human can have, patience is certainly one I never mastered. For that reason mostly, I’ve never been a fan of jigsaw puzzles. Last night we decided to have fast food for dinner, and my daughter found a puzzle as prize in her happy meal bag. As soon as we got home, she opened the small bag… Continue

I read a story a few weeks back about a school district in California pulling all copies of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary from its libraries because a parent complained the dictionary was being used to look up "age inappropriate" words by students. When I read this story I literally laughed out loud. Continue
Banning the dictionary? Really?
Let me start by saying, I'm all for keeping things age appropriate. When our kids were younger, we were some of those weird parents…

Anyone who has ever read my blog knows that I am a super advocate of
sisterhood. I think that cat fights between women are ridiculous and
that if we all spent a lot more time being real and supporting each
other, life would be so much better for all of us. Why does it always
have to be a competition? My kid does this, does yours? My husband
makes this much money, what does yours make? My house is bigger than
yours. It truly is a… Continue

I have been suffering with pain in my joints (on my right foot, ankle and fingers) for ten days now. I went to the doctor (after much research) and thought, for sure, I'd get some help for Gout. To my surprise, the doctor caughed it up to a "stress fracture". He pulled, pushed and stretched my foot till there was nothing left. He gave me a shot of pain reliever and anti-inflammitory (sorry- so dizzy and frustrated, if I sound confusing- bare with me please).
I just don't know… Continue
