yesterday we tried to go meet and greet with Miss DC. We live in Hampton Roads and to DC is about a 2 1/2, to 3 hour drive give or take. It was Friday, It was raining, it took 5 hours. We missed the event by 9 minutes...
I’m just going to come right out and put it on the table here. I suffer from C.A.P.S. (Cyber Addictive Personality Syndrome,) and I am seeking help for my Facebook addiction. This confession is the first step of my therapy with Dr. Facebook.
Ironically, I heard about Dr. Facebook online. Typically, I try to ignore those insulting advertisements on the right side of my screen. Wondering if the sinewy grasp of Facebook’s… Continue
I have a wedding anniversary coming up and if you asked me how long I've been married I couldn't tell you. It's not that I don't care, I just don't remember. It's a numbers thing with me. Can't add, subtract or recall them in any way, shape, or form. I admit that I am numerically challenged. I rode the "special" bus with the other mathematically dim children when I was in elementary school.
I was married in a beautiful Pacific Heights mansion overlooking the San Francisco Bay. My… Continue

Thanks to the wonderful people at Silver Cross and Amy Jonston at Wolfstar my Halo buggy arrived today for me to review and try out.
The Halo's main feature is the unique elliptical frame (the ‘halo’ around the child) which delivers exceptional protection and simple flexibility. It also Converts to a complete travel system with the Ventura car seat.
I can honestly say it is the best buggy I have ever had. With 2wheels to click on and the hood to be attached (which also… Continue

You may know that Causecast leader Matthew Modine is really into bicycling. His comparison of automobiles to cigarettes inspired some strong reactions from readers on The Huffington Post. For some time, he’s been an outspoken voice urging us to change our culture and especially the way we think about transportation.
If you’ve been involved in the great bike vs car debate and live in or near New York City, you can share in Modine’s revolution by joining him and his organization,… Continue

If there's one lesson I've learned in my life, so far, that I can pass on to your wondrous ears (or eyes), is to never assume anything. Oh, you've heard this one before? Well, how often do you actually follow it?
I believe this to be one of life's most important lessons. When you assume something, anything, about anybody, you're also in danger of passing on some kind of judgement, which is also a faux pas in my eyes.
Case in point: last year I worked at a high end… Continue

My oldest was diagnosed in the Asperger's spectrum when she was 5 years old. I wasn't surprised. I knew that there was a disconnect somewhere but what ever I read about Autism was a step too far from what I was experiencing with her.
Everyday is a lesson. Everyday we try to remember the tools that we've been given to guide her toward good choices. Her first reaction to things always seems to be 'anger'. That emotion is so far removed from the rest… Continue

I've been wanting to do some sort of mural/art design on "Easy's" wall for awhile now, but I'm sooo not creative. I think it really makes a room pop. I love the personalized feel it gives. So when I got the opportunity to review removable decals I thought... PERFECT! This should be easy for me. I didn't want the cheesy, small, just looks like stickers decals. I wanted the look of art work. When I got the opportunity to try out CuteyBaby's decals I was very excited! Her designs are adorable and… Continue

This is how a conversation with myself went....about a villain in one of my little stories. It's interesting how I manage to argue myself out of writing anything bad about ANYBODY in the story. But if I don't, the story would be utterly, positively and irrefutably BORING.
You can't write that! The poor girl is just too nice to be injured like that.
OK, I'll write off the guy who spat the gum on the side of the road then.…
I know I may be alone on this but is anyone else fed up with and disgusted by reality shows?? I feel like if I watch a show of a family exposing themselves to the world, I am contributing to the downfall of the children. Are all of those kids destined to the scary child star fate that has destroyed the lives of so many young and famous?
What do you think? http://tinyurl.com/realityshowsyuck
Moms and Grams teaching kids working is for a long time
My daughter has seven children five grandchildren and she’ll be 43 August which makes me a mom gram and great grandmother I’ll be 63 this July. Over the last 22 years it has taxed my responsibilities while being fair to each child and I tell my daughter it’s not easy being grandmother to so many children when you want to give each child a special part of you however we’ve managed which brings me to William my 14 year old… Continue
I have been divorced for over 2 years now. My son and I are quite close, but I had to do the hardest thing when I got divorced... I had to leave.
My ex-husband wanted the divorce and even wanted full custody. I did not allow it and went for joint custody. The problem was that when the divorce was going on, I was only 6 months into trying to get back on my feet. My ex wanted me to pay half of the house bills when he made 2 times more (nearly 50K). The other part was catching up to old… Continue
