As I sit here at a library computer typing I am thinking about how crazy the last three weeks have been while my husband has visited family in China . I am also very grateful he will be home soon and I will no longer be single handedly taking care of our three childrens. The day after Christmas my husband left to visit his family. Since then I have been trying like crazy to keep up with our three very active children. F is 8 yrs old and a loving sensitive boy. F is also very…Continue

So I'm starting off the year with a pretty hefty worry, and it's one I've had before.
There is nothing like creating life or being solely responsible for the life of another human being.

I leave the room and sit in the lobby for them to finish my paperwork. While I’m waiting, I send Jason a text saying, “I just wanted to let you know that I’m at Planned Parenthood. They confirm that I am pregnant and due in November.”
He sends a text back saying, “I don’t even know what to say to you.”
Stunned by this reply, I’m at a loss for how to respond. How does he not know what to say to me? Last I knew, it takes two for this result to happen.
He sends a follow-up…Continue

If you’ve been with us for some time, you may remember when I had a ‘blog hater’ (aka. bully) a long while back. She was like a stray cat to me. If I fed her, she’d come back the next day. Long story short, I didn’t feed her and wouldn’t post her nonsense. She left… moved onto the next victim. Its been a long while since I’ve had someone new come along that felt the need to call names, degrade and write inappropriate things… Bullies come and go though; we all know that. It’s…Continue

I am by no means an expert when it comes to having a successful blog. My version of success when I started was a goal to have 1,000 followers and 20,000 views within a year. Within two years I wanted to make money off my blog either by means of a book, advertising or having my blog in a newspaper where I was being paid.
Here I am, just about seven months in and I will tell you what I've learned and how far I've gotten. Why? Because people have asked me for advice or are just…Continue
