So I said to myself, “Self…you have been sorely neglecting your duties as Mayor of late…”. Myself responded with a rude gesture & a string of expletives that made even me blush. Then I was clocked over the head with a calendar. A sad reminder that September is looming, & with it, the two things I struggle with the most…the loss of my babies back to the school system, & the impending arrival of…
If you live within driving distance of Los Angeles then I am looking for you. I have teamed up with the P.R. agency for Habitat for Humanity L.A. to coordinate a "Mom Blogger Build." You would just need to show up for a day or two (probably on a weekend) to help work on a house for a family that really needs it. We also ask that you blog before, during and after the build just to document your thoughts, why it's important, how it touched you, etc.
Exactly as I planned it will happen. Following My blueprints, it
will take shape, Isaiah 14:24...for He decides destiny and
controls fate. Whether there is a feast or famine. It is He who
examines...each phase of the plan. The motives of each woman or man.
Will we do His will or pursue our own plan...void of the Masters
commands. For committed and persistent work, will pay off;
get-rich-quick schemes… Continue
The second day of our visit to my girlfriend’s farm we spent at the local pool. For such a small town in the country, they have a very sophisticated pool with tons of water features, and the boys were in and out of the water for four hours. Since I didn’t have a bathing suite and had just burned my skin to a crisp on Nantucket, I was in no mood to swim, so Karen “swam” with the boys and I took… Continue
Did you know that the #1 cause of divorce is money? You've probably heard that statistic before but have you really spent time thinking about it? Maybe you have, you are married, and you fight over money most of the time. Bills owed can be a stressful thing. Then again maybe you haven't spent much time dwelling on it, you push it aside and don't deal…Continue
Or Queen. Although even in my fantasies, I only ever make it into the kingdom as far as a court jester. Sometimes, if I'm lucky, I make it in as a royal loaf of bread.
However, as I mentioned in my last post, I did get the "One Lovely Blog" award from the always ever so thoughtful Marieke from mformommy.blogspot.com. Go visit her and say hi! She's one blogger… Continue
I still can't believe it....I'm a MOM!!!! lol I always thought that having a baby would be like having a puppy....HA It's more like having a whole farm! I no longer have time to indulge in myself.....
In my last post I ended with a backside picture of me taken in Aug.2007 just a few months shy of my 30th birthday. I was newly pregnant with my first child (like that ass looks like it's had any babies! lol), I had no idea what I was in for! I was in preggo bliss! I hadn't had my…
On the upside I can appreciate that we just closed on a new house (my first home) which is beautiful and perfectly accommodating for our lifestyle. What I would have done differently was keep better track of our funds while purchasing items needed for our house. While moving it was difficult as we were without phone and internet service which I depend on for checking daily account balances. I have a tendency to blame some of it on my DH who tends to be quite the spend thrift but meant well.…
I am an anomaly: I married right out of high school and started having children at a young age. While most of my classmates are only now starting their families ten year later, my third baby is starting kindergarten in the fall and baby four is almost ready for preschool. I am not, however, one of those barefoot and pregnant women. I am part of a new, yet growing, segment of the population that is having children first and then growing a career after their family is…
buggy, child out and running wild, chasing after child to prevent a
accident/incident/angry shoppers... Then the whole thing crashes
backwards under the weight of milk and bananas, crushing your shopping
and any suggestion of parenting competency along with it. Every time it
happens, you curse yourself because it's so bloody predictable (laws of
physics and all).
I often find myself wondering if my parenting is that of a regular mom. A mom untouched by the death of her own mother..but I quickly realize, when you have lost a parent nothing you ever do will be untouched by that loss. For as long as I
can remember I have…
I have a lot in my life and I am very blessed. I have a man who adores me, I have two beautiful daughters, I have my health and I am truly happy. But there is one thing in my life that is missing, not exactly missing, just not something I have close by. Girlfriends.…Continue

Getting teens to open up is one of the most important tasks of parenting a teenager. It is also one of the most challenging parts of parenthood. If your teen rolls her eyes, walks away angrily, or retreats to his bedroom when you try to talk to him or her, you are not alone. Many parents…
Most parents find that training their non-disabled children for life's activities is challenging enough. However, parents of physically challenged children have to be especially creative to make sure that their young people learn the daily life skills that they need to be self-sufficient. Occupational…
