The loneliness of moving

One of the hardest things about moving is the emminant loneliness that is sure to plague you for the first few months. Really, that is why more people don’t do it: the fear of loneliness. I’m convinced of

that.

Let’s face it, being alone stinks. There isn’t any fun in it. And even if you have kids and a husband, you still don’t have your own friends who you can meet up with for coffee every once and awhile and

chat. Or possibly leave your kids with while you get a mani-pedi.…

Our Kinder, Vegetarian Diet: Week 11

After my first post about this, and many inquiries about how things are going, I wanted to finally give you an update on our kinder, more vegetarian diet. We started changing things in our kitchen mostly because Don got sick with some kind of inflammatory illness five months ago, and since he got no diagnosis or pain relief from conventional medicine, he needed to try something…

Big Birthday Year for 2010

This is NOT my year, the only thing missing from my “NOT” year is a high school reunion – that would just take the cake.



My “not’s” for this year (that I’m already freaking out about, but haven’t actually happened yet = the story of my life):



1. my husband is turning 30

2. my son is turning 3

3. my daughter is turning 10



Why is this my not year you ask? Let me explain.

It's A Wrap!



Don't be fooled by the pretty packing...heartache and destruction may lie under the wrapping.

Society makes everything look attractive...but in reality they are

momentary distractions. Stumbling blocks, we call cultural attractions.

Cheers...What's wrong with a couple of beers? Join in

everyone...getting inebriated is fun! And when you're done...tying on

one...and your faculties are none.

Spices Every Kitchen Should Keep on Hand





The great debate will always rage on for the essential spice spot in the kitchen. What spices should I keep on hand? Every starter chef has asked this question at some point or another, only to find the standard black and white, boring list that everyone else has.

Salt and Pepper have reigned long enough and are slowly being picked off by other, more tasteful spices. Basil and Oregano moved in for a stay at the top while Rosemary and… Continue

spin (for) the bottle

Husband and I have a pretty good system going in terms of who does what with Baby S. For middle of the night feedings, we switch off. If one of us is particularly tired or working late, the other picks up the slack. Daytime feedings are a breeze. It's a fair and balanced agreement so successful I think we could teach a seminar.



This is going to shock all of no one, but yes, changing poopie diapers are another story. I know, you're…

“...I just want to be myself and go to the prom that I was supposed to have since I've known what prom was.” Constance McMillen



I have wanted to write about Constance McMillen, since her story began to

filter into mainstream media. If you aren’t familiar with her story,

to read about how her school canceled prom instead of allowing her to

Bread Crumbs are how much??

Lean ground beef is on sale @ Metro for $1.99/lb. So away I went and purchased a couple of the large family sized packs of meat totaling about 10lbs. On the menu-

The Cock I Got in Jamaica

I collect roosters, a lot of them. At last count there were over 90 roosters/chickens in my kitchen. All reside in the kitchen because my husband won’t grant them visas to migrate past the boundaries of the kitchen. Some are old, some new, some art deco, some classic and some from around the world.… Continue

Choices

“In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt







One of the most intriguing things about listening to people describe news events is their tendency to remember – and their preference to discuss – the most gruesome segments. I once heard someone say that the newscast he had just watched was not very interesting because nothing really… Continue

Are You A Hero?

Some say we don't have anymore heroes but I say we do. Let's take a look at what a hero is and decide if you are one.



A hero travels the hero's journey. That's when regular people such as you or me are asked to leave our routine life because something serious has occurred and we are asked to do something about it. We are "called to help." We are called to save our king, our country, our friend, or ourself. And because the task is arduous, we really don't want to accept it.… Continue

Another Free Tutorial

In opening my new store on Etsy (MooseandWormy), I decided that I would give away all my designs for free on my blog. I am a firm believer in free crafting. Most of us have more skills than cash, and it seems dumb that we all have to reinvent the wheel every time we try to make something new. Silly. So, I give away all my designs for free.… Continue

Ingrid Michaelson and Mat Kearney Rock the Electric Factory

Ingrid and Mat

First of all, I’m not much of a music blogger, but since I love Ingrid Michaelson so much I figured I’d agree to blog about the amazing concert I went to see her perform on Friday March 19th at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia.

I first heard both Mat Kearney and Ingrid Michaelson on the TV show Grey’s Anatomy, and were both on one of the Grey’s Anatomy soundtrack CDs (I…
