Will YOU Join Me in My 30 Day Challenge?

A few days ago I shared a blog post (read it here) about recognizing an opportunity before me… an opportunity to change my own mindset about how each day is experienced.  I know for certain that the steps I’ve taken toward making this mindset change have already made a difference to…

The Flower Power Entrepreneur

Do you know what I absolutely hate spending money on?

Greeting cards.

I spend tons on cards for people that may be displayed on a counter for a couple of days and then casually get tossed into the trash.  Even the "discount" cards are still around $2.99.  And let's not even discuss the dollar store cards.  Much cheaper but...scary-looking!  You know what I mean?  If you've ever seen one, we're on the same page.

But a friend of mine recently formed a business that…

Pregnancy Workout Mama: The First Trimester

So, before we found out we were pregnant, I was really working hard on getting to the gym four or five times a week. And I was doing such an awesome job.

And then, we had a crazy week where Ricky was home for six days – no working breaks for mama – which meant mama got really behind. Which led to two weeks of playing catch up, and only two or three workouts.

Then there was this week, where I’ve basically been nauseous and just trying to figure out how to cope with severe…

Negotiating a game of Calvinball

Like many other very cool people, I am a fan of Calvin & Hobbes. And because of that, I know the rules of Calvinball:

  1. You make up the rules as you go along.
  2. You can't play the game the same way…

Sand with a side of blueberries

A few Fridays ago, I had the day off, and decided to be spontaneous and scoop my boys and toys and towels and chairs and snacks and drinks, and diapers and sunscreen and bug spray, and hats and just whimsically jump in the car and head to the beach! After 90 minutes I was ready to go!

A good friend came with her 3 girls. We had 5 kids under 5 to two of us. I felt vulnerable...

The walk from the car to the beach was epic. Together, she and I looked like we were Sherpas to a… Continue

Blogging Tips: Getting Back on a Fall Schedule

Happy fall!

Ok, it’s not really fall yet – we’ve still got another week. But it IS back to school time – which means it’s time to get out of summer break mode and start focusing on your blog again.

I know how it goes during the summer. The kids are home, you’ve got barbeques and bonfires to go to, vacations to maximize, beach trips to enjoy. Summer really is the time to get outside (and away from your computer) to enjoy everything that the outdoors has to offer.

Trust me…

Morning Sickness: So Bad I Scared Myself into Researching Twins

When I was pregnant with Ricky, I had moderate morning sickness. By four weeks, I felt a little nauseous in the afternoon, would lay down for 20 minutes and be fine.

When I was pregnant with Addison, I have some nasty morning sickness (relatively), and spent a lot of nights moaning about feeling like I was going to puke. But it was still workable – as in, I could work around it, and just rest in the evenings.

With this pregnancy, the morning sickness is not so fun. It’s not all…

My Personal Experience with Depression

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day.
I took to Google to find the definition of suicide.  
"The act of killing oneself intentionally."
It's such a clear-cut definition but the road to suicide is not so clear-cut.
I know this because I have been suicidal.  I have felt like there was nothing left to live for.  I tried to take my own life but I'm still here to tell you about it.

Diaper Bags and Imperfections

Joel and I registered for two diaper bags.  Yes, two.  Why?  Because we are immature and we don't know how to share.
I personally like to have everything ready to go, before we go somewhere, and in a certain order.  Joel is sort of a fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants kind of guy and almost always misses something.  So to avoid any arguments over who forgot this and who didn't grab that we each got our own bag.
See if you can figure out whose is whose.

I am a Mom

I was finally able to capture Caleb saying "mamama" on video.

He has been saying it for a few weeks now but of course every time I lift my camera, he stops.  It was so easy to catch him saying "dada" on video because I would just record him saying it to Joel.  With Joel always working I had to try and catch him saying "mama" on my own and that was no easy task.

The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship

I met Joel September 3, 2005.
Actually I don't know the exact date that I met him.  I came up with that date burning pictures onto CDs from my old computer years ago. I organized all of my pictures by the "Date Taken" listed in the picture properties.  I have since learned that a lot of those dates aren't accurate but the first picture of Joel and I together was listed as taken on September 3, 2005 so I stuck with it.

Why One Ruud Mom?
