10 Fun Family, Budget-Friendly Ideas for Celebrating Valentine's Day at Home!

I love Valentine's Day.  I  love going out.  I love good food.  I love romance.  I love chocolate.  The list goes on...

But sometimes the pressure of finding a babysitter for that one particular night, then heading out to an expensive restaurant only to find it will be a 1 1/2 hour wait time just  to eat, seems like more trouble than it's worth.  Last year, we decided to do something different - celebrate at home - family style!  We still went out, but just chose a different…

Finding the Right Kind of Replacement

     Ever since my autistic son's Orange Tabby Cat (named Orange) went missing three years ago, we have never stopped searching. We went to the shelter the other day think we had finally found him, but alas it was not him. We did see a lot of orange cats that looked a lot like the one that went missing ( we still suspect fowl play from the shady neighbor we had been living across the street from). I think my…

A Conversation with Children's Author Beverly Stowe McClure

When Beverly was a child she hated to read. Even though her eighth-grade teacher sent her poem “Stars” to a high school anthology and it was published in Young America Sings she hated to write. In spite of her rocky relationship with books, she managed to graduate from high school then attended Midwestern State…

Moving Forward By Backing Up

My laptop is on the fritz.  I am prepping myself for the day (probably soon) when I go to turn it on and it goes "poof".  Now I know there is probably some sort of technical fix to retrieve all my personal and business information but frankly hunting down a laptop will take all the extra energy and time I…

The Social Media Time Vacuum

I am totally guilty of getting sucked into Twitter.  And Facebook.  And now Pinterest.  It doesn't help that as a small business owner with a limited advertising budget, social media is a great way to meet new clients and advertise.  I may say I go on for my business, but I know I stay for the pleasure of social…

No Children Allowed, AKA THE BRAT BAN?!

I'm so rarely ahead of the curve however just last week some 28 yo friend of my youngest sister was hollering at me on Facebook about "my alleged parental indignation" over not being ALLOWED to take my kids to see a Harry Potter movie, at ten in the morning on a summer's day. My sister had gone to a movie theatre that had a bar and reserved seating and was gushing about drinking cocktails at ten am while watching Harry Potter with nary a kid in sight. Her friend chirped in, "I hate kids and…

An Organized Potty?!? You Betcha!

When we were visiting friends a few weekends back in Chicago, I noticed they had a great toilet seat with a built in potty chair.  The Church NextStep Toilet Seat is available at your local big box hardware store or online through Amazon and…

Hangin' With Miss Frizzle & the Magic Schoolbus at Impression 5

I was pretty darned excited when I heard that The Magic Schoolbus exhibit was at the Impression 5 science museum for kids in Lansing, Michigan.



My children grew up with Miss Frizzle and her insanely over-the-top field trip adventures into the curious and mysterious world of science.



We packed into my Magic Yukon and departed for the capital of Michigan, with (as my…

Never Too Old for the Playground

After the nutty shaving cream fight on Saturday, Sunday was not measuring up on the fun scale.



I really didn't have anything planned but my kids' half sister, Gracie, was getting antsy as all first graders do.



The sun was out so I grabbed my camera and we loaded into the Yukon for a mini field trip to Ithaca's Woodland Park.  They have an updated safer play area towards the back of the park but I still…

Cathy's Critter Corner is a family friendly blog about my critters and their antics.

   Hello,  my Alpacas, chickens, and dogs bring joy to my life and I hope you will feel the same.  Updated 1-2 times a week, it is fun, educational, and pictures are updated weekly.  Shearing for the Alpacas will happen soon and I hope to have some Alpaca products to post.  Alpaca fiber is hypoallergenic and as soft as cashmere!  Come meet them before they get their 'haircuts'.  PS. I won't have an animal that I have to kill to profit from or one that could kill me:)  Hope to see you soon at…

How I Met Your Father

My husband will hate that I’ve shared our story. I love him, but mostly I don’t care if this bothers him or not. It’s my story too. It’s the story of how we met.

When you are in high school, everyone wants to know when you will get your driver’s license.  When you are in college, everyone wants to know what you are majoring in. When you finish college, everyone wants to know where you are working. When you are working, everyone wants to know if you are dating anyone. When you are…

Life Labeled as a ‘Working Mom’

Hi, it’s me standing on my soap box. Yes… again.

Moms make difficult decisions every day: Should I buy the generic diapers on sale or should I splurge on name brand? Breast or bottle? Is my child crying because he really needs something or is he crying because he’s a little fussy? Despite the unsolicited advice and lectures I have endured regarding my…
