I was recently inspired by my friend J. ( from In the Gutter
) who wrote a blog post titled "A Penny Saved... is a Missed Opportunity"
that begins with the sentence "What are you saving your China for?". It is a good post and you all should head on over and read it. She has… Continue

I have not seen the movie AVATAR in 3-D, but a thought suddenly occured to me: How would a child from some remote African village, one who has never seen a movie react to wearing special glasses and watching AVATAR in 3-D? Would they think the characters were real? Would they run out of the movie theatre screaming? Or would they simply get hooked like most teenagers since the movie surpassed the $1 billion mark.
What are your thoughts on that?

I suddenly came to the realization that eating organic, market-fresh, good for me fruits and vegetables was going to be nearly impossible here in GiTMO and I am disappointed because this is, after all, a tropical island where things are supposed to grow abundantly year round. So yes, my expectations were a little on the high side. In the Dominican Republic, where I was born, we had just about… Continue

(Part of 15 homemade beauty treatments in 15 days)
What I did
I purchased some cheap peppermint tea(clearance bin @ grocery store for $1). I brewed a really strong tea using about 4 cups of hot water and 6 tea bags.
I then soaked my feet for 10 minutes in the tea (make sure it's not too hot). Since I have dry skin I added a few drops of baby oil to the peppermint bath.
When my 10 minutes was up I dried off and took the foot… Continue

Wow, a New Year and a New Decade!!! What an exciting time. It's hard to believe that I am near the end of the first work week of the new year. This week I spent time going back through my calendar. I used this time to help me reflect and think about 2009. There were aspects of 2009 that brought joy, sorrow, frustration, happiness, etc.
After reflecting on the past year I became excited with the possibilities of 2010. I am ready to let go of 2009… Continue

My body is angry. It is resisting, pushing, shrinking back, lashing out. Angry. I guess I am too. At my body.
I know, I need to be gentle with myself. I need to accept, like my word of the year. It is hard to accept a body that fights you even when you sleep.
I am 38 weeks pregnant. My body is completely hijacked right now nurturing, growing, developing a human that needs everything I have to give to it. And so I do. I give my body everything it needs. I can't wait to see the… Continue

Ever notice how the end of the holiday season brings out the contrariness in some of us?
Bah humbug, and all that jazz.
Oh, not me. I'm still on a holiday high. In fact, I wish it would never end...
But that's just because I've been procrastinating with a new book proposal.
But enough about me. I about laffed myself silly at… Continue

If asked if you are you an “awakened” parent you would probably pause to consider what that actually means. What constitutes being an awakened parent? Many equate the term “awakened” with “eyes wide-opened” or being “aware”. In terms of parenting, to be awakened means to be conscious of what your role as a parent consists of…examining your role, determining if it is working to produce the results you intend, and finally, making necessary changes to achieve those goals.
Parenting is… Continue

I just finished my second cup of raspberry leaf tea for the day. I read about its uterine stimulating qualities in one of my pregnancy updates and kept meaning to buy some. I didn’t get around to it until earlier this week, so hopefully I’m not too late to reap its supposed rewards!
I know that less than 4% or so of babies are born on their due date. Still, I can’t help the emotional and mental attachment I’ve developed about tomorrow....it has been my lighthouse on the horizon, the… Continue

We all know that parents arguing is not a great thing, especially if it happens in front of their children. New research from the University of Rochester, Syracuse University and University of Notre Dame, however, is showing that parental conflict may also affect how children perform in school. One recent study followed 216 6-year-olds over a period of three years. The children's teachers were asked about the kids' behavior at school such as interaction with peers, participation in classroom… Continue

Weight loss, fitness, health, and eating right is on everyone's to do list for the new year. An activity exciting for both men and women - consider regular sex as an effective approach to weight loss and fitness, as well as a couple of extra perks toward healthy skin, hair and immune system.
1. Recent research shows that exercise in short bursts over the course of the day can be as effective as a continuous 30 to 40 minutes. This means that a person could… Continue

Weight loss and sleep have a relation to one another and believe it or not the impact sleep loss has on your weight loss success is massive.
Within a weeks time many people will be, if they aren't already, trying to get rid of the extra pounds they put on over the holidays. They may also find themselves desperate to catch up on sleep due to the demanding parties, gatherings, social events, and fundraisers we find ourselves involved in over the holiday season.
It is… Continue

...After we stopped in town to get the mail, my sister-in-law and three of her kids came over for the afternoon. Don and Maria wanted to watch the movie “Food Inc." I decided to entertain the kids with making cupcakes.
I had just bought this muffin-making kit for a dollar on sale yesterday, thinking it would come in handy one day. Reading the ingredients made me shudder . . . Let’s just say making these was more fun than eating them — not even the kids ate much of… Continue

Sitting at work thinking of all of the things I could be doing at home instead! Laundry, NAPPING, mopping floors, NAPPING, vacuuming (I can never spell that word right) and did I mention I need a NAP! Anyways, I'm reading the bible in 90 days using the book The Bible in 90 Days - Cover to Cover in 12 pages a day. I'm only like 40 pages behind and I started January 1st. But I am not going to get discouraged - I read during my lunch hour and I'll read a read some extra pages over the weekend if I… Continue
