Dee Dum, Dee Dum, Delightful, Redux

[From my blog:]

When I opened the curtains this morning, the sky was overcast. Our streak of nice-ish weather seemed over.

A while later, after The Spouse and children left, I looked out the window and saw people on the street carrying umbrellas.

That's not good.

Just a moment ago, I thought it suddenly seemed quite dark in here. I looked up.

It's snowing.

The kids went to school today in… Continue

Dancing Mothers, Tumbling Daughters

When I was growing up, I always figured I would be on Broadway. I LOVED to dance. I started ballet at 5, and took lessons of tap, jazz, modern, and ballet till I was 18. I was on the drill team in high school.

I never fulfilled my dream of dancing, and of course I unsuccessfully tried to instill the love of dance in my daughter. Lesson learned the hard way! Her first few months of ballet were awkward at best. She didn't like the hard work attached, the discipline of ballet. She was… Continue

LeapFrog Text and Learn - Not Like Mommy's Blackberry

When I heard about the latest addition to their product line, the LeapFrog Text and Learn, I just had to scratch my head and say "WHY???" and then say "What were they thinking?". Most of our kids already know how to use a cell phone, and a large percentage of those can even work their way around a smartphone, blackberry or iPhone device… Continue

Feeling a little out of place...

I want to learn how to do all of the creative and cute things all these moms are doing with their blogs. I am feeling pretty inadequate at the moment. This seems like a really nice clean site and I am just looking for friendly support and uplifting advise. I have so much drama in my real life I need a nice little cyber space all of my own.

Around the World with $80K

For me it would be akin to winning the lottery. Skadden, Arps, a law firm in New York, offered their associates $80,000, one-third of their pay, to take the year off. Wow. Along with that comes immunity from future layoffs. Sparkly isn’t it? Why would anyone say no? Well they’re not. According to this article in the NY Times about 125 associates have taken the firm up on their offer. Some of them will pursue higher education, others will take pro bono work to stay competitive, still others will… Continue

Trying to get some action

It's time to get some more action happening with my Creative Memories business. My time is ticking for me to qualify properly, and i'm *slightly* starting to worry. So far i've been doing as much as I can without having to spend a fortune (that isn't there yet... YET!) but it doesn't seem like its enough.

I've done a letterbox drop, done one lot of markets - just waiting on the next lot of cheaper stalls to come up on the calendar and I started up a Facebook group (if your on… Continue

Adobo Pork Chops

Adobo pork chops are a big favorite at my house. They are spicy and have a wonderful flavor. I usually make the marinade the night before or first thing in the morning and let them soak up the flavor overnight or for at least 8 hours. The chops are very low in carbs so I usually serve them with beans or potatoes.

Makes: 6 servings


* 6 boneless pork top loin chops, cut 3/4 inch thick ( 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 pounds total)

* 2 tablespoons packed brown… Continue

Why is This News?

I just read an article on WebMD about the benefits of a diet high in fruits, nuts, and vegetables and low in fatty, processed foods (Not All Diets Pass the Heart-Healthy Test) and wondered "Why is this news?" Don't we all know this stuff by now?

Don't get me wrong, the article was great, but I am amazed that we Americans still don't get it. Our diet is chock full of fast food, sugar, fat. Why is that? The answer, in one word is convenience. We've grown accustomed to a life of hectic… Continue

Spring Births Life Anew

This is a season of beauty:

melodic rains, lush pine trees, and soft frog croaks.

This is a season of dilation,

laboring hard I am,

becoming is a laborious thing...

Today I see the beautiful, and I know I carry it,

all things are of the Creator,

I am ecstatic to cocreate a blossoming such as this.

Pink buds host a force, a rush of love through their bodies,

ready to acquiesce to the thrill of this season.

White flower softness follows me:… Continue
