Halloween falls on a Saturday this year- what a bonus for working moms! No need to race home from work to take your children door to door. No need to feel guilty that you can't make it home until past dark. Halloween is on Saturday this year- what a wonderful thing! My son is of the age where he thinks it's hysterical to dress up like a cheerleader and actually convinced me to buy him the outfit. Pom poms and all. My daughter, on the other hand, had her mind set on being Hannah Montana which… Continue

There is great concern, bordering on hysteria about the swine flu/ H1N1 virus spreading across the country and beyond and the battle over who should and shouldn’t get the vaccine. Pregnant women are getting mixed messages and several hundred (already suffering) kids have passed away from the flu, as they do each year. Rightfully so, everyone is worried about the children and what they should do to protect them.
There is great concern about child abduction. There have been terribly… Continue

Men probably dream about racing a car or making money or traveling all around (for free) while women (me, generally speaking) dream about falling off the edge of a plank, losing a loved one, getting trapped in a place that I am unfamiliar with and, more recently, dreamed that buildings were crumbling like crackers all around me...and I stood on the only last remaining solid building in the whole...whatever that was.
Things changed for… Continue

When we went up to Pismo a couple weekends ago not only did Easy get to ride a horse, we also visited one of my favorite pumpkin patches. It was pretty much a weekend to kick start Fall. It was the first weekend of cooler weather, bonfires, pumpkin pie, first fire in the fire place of the season, and visit to the pumpkin patch! Such festive fall family fun!!! OMG...check out Easy at this farm last year HERE! Such a little sweet guy!…

As a freelancer there are terribly long stretches of time when I’m not working and others when I’m working like a banchee. Most recently I missed my girls first day of school while I was away for work. (Continue)

Ok, so here’s the deal. I’m not exactly as vigilant as I should be about what my kids watch. I tend to watch something, get seriously into it, and then when it’s too late, notice my kids are with me watching it, and it is TOTALLY inappropriate. Bad news. Well, this bad habit has come back to bite me in the ass in a somewhat disturbing, yet totally hilarious way. %
Here is a pic of my son’s latest homework assignment, front and back.…

I have had fun comments about this blog entry. Here is the link Mommyhood Moment-You Need a Bigger Mom to Use the Racecar Grocery Cart
I have tried to use the racecar grocery cart. It is the most unyielding thing to try to push down the aisle of a store. JDaniel was placed in one at Home Depot once and ever since then he has pointed to them frantically as we enter the… Continue

I belong to a few social networking sites like this one, and I am often asked about where stepparents can go for support. I created The Step Sanctuary to fill that void. It is a 4-week facilitated support group that meets via conference call once a week.
To learn more and to sign up, please check out my website at http://www.blackwellfamilyresources.com/step_sanctuary
But hurry, space is limited!

I won’t say the name of this organization because then I can speak more freely, but there was a meeting last night that my son and husband attended. It was a meeting for kids. Boys only, to be specific. While I say this with complete and utter respect, compassion and understanding, women and girls have no place at these meetings. Trust me. [more HERE]

As you know I’m not real big on the give away thing. I just don’t have it in me to ask someone tweet, retweet, post, follow, add a button, blah, blah, blah and then tally up points.
HOWEVER, I was sent a package to pass along to my readers. Here’s what the promotion is about (And yes, there is a “for you” part to this.):

As I am sure it is apparent by now, I like to get good deals – and I enjoy it even more if I can get things for free. But, believe it or not, even I have my limits. There are just some lines I will not cross, and I know the perfect story to tell you to demonstrate this fact.
When my husband, Rob, and I had been married for about 3 or 4 months, we were living in Manhattan, Kansas. Rob was in the Army, stationed at Ft. Riley, a post located about 30 minutes away from our… Continue

Homemade Reed Diffusers: How-To & Tips
Reed diffusers are decorative air fresheners for the home that work with scented oils and reeds. The oil travels up the reeds to release their fragrance into the air around them. No need to use aerosol sprays, light candles or plugin air fresheners, the process handles itself naturally.
They’re very popular since you can choose from an endless amount of fragrances, have no open flames… Continue

One of the cardinal rules of blogging is to be consistent with how often you post. Whether you post several times a day, a once a week, or even once a month, its important to be consistent. So what do you do if you know you are going to be away from your computer for a few days or weeks and don't want your readers to miss an update? Schedule them in advance!
Most blogging platforms allow you to create drafts of posts and schedule them for later publication. You can usually find this… Continue

Even though it’s a rainy day, I want to take a drive out to Ohio farm country, specifically to drive by our old house. I expect it to look the same — a little, two-bedroom farmhouse surrounded by mature trees. I had to have that house when I saw the 200-year old shagbark hickories and enormous oaks, the woods, the barn, the long cement driveway lined with peony bushes, the bird houses atop posts planted along the creek that divided our property from a soy field, farmed by a man who goes by the… Continue
