Tuesday Thoughts | Ahem...Exercise

I remember when I found out I was pregnant with baby #3. Yahoo! Wonderful. So excited.



Oh, the commitments to myself. ‘Boy, this time I’m going to stay on top of things. I’m going to do plenty of exercise. Eat healthy. Lots of rest.’ You see, pregnancy #2 was full of rich, dairy cravings,

and with my first child just turning one, our walks were just about as

fast as a snail’s pace at that time. Not super-fat-blasting, if you know

what I…

Monday Muse | The Beauty of Buttons

Buttons. Yes, a strange fascination, I admit. But I love them.



2010-05-31 - Monday Muse - The Beauty of Buttons



I’ve always loved buttons. Those colorful, textured little baubles from the past. And yes, I know, it doesn’t exactly match up with the whole de-clutter philosophy…but they do bring me such happiness. And…

Leaders & Followers

For those who believe leadership is a trait one is born with — well, I disagree. I’ve seen my kids follow their own peculiar drum beat but I’ve also seen them emulate the traits of others they admire. They’ve vacillated between both extremes, exerting leadership traits when confident and relinquishing that role by choice when unsure of how to proceed. In these situations I’ve observed them follow their instincts and have been…

I don't use mine often cause I want them to be encouraging at just the right time...wait, hold on, I feel a God-tangent comin,' yep, it's a God-tangent…

The Path of Least Resistance

When I first became a parent, I remember very clearly my mother advising me to "choose my battles carefully". It was her belief, and soon became mine, that when raising children, you must not put yourself in a position of "dictator". "Growing up shouldn't be a battlefield" my mother would say.



Her words were always in the back of my mind as I was raising my daughter (now 32) and are still a very large part of my parenting philosophy as I now raise my grandchildren.

Good bye, Schmorl's Node

This week, I’m thankful I can now say, “Good bye, Schmorl’s Node!” Although I know that each node is still actually there in my back, at least they’re no longer inflamed and making life uncomfortable. Who would’ve thought that adjusting from cup size C to cup size H when Glenn arrived could cause back pain?!



Thankful for my…

How to Raise a Happy Teen

Possible? Plausible? Urban legend?

Actually no. Listen all you parents of young girls, you don’t have to stress. I have the secret to success and since I have been asked, many times to share it, I thought, what better way than my daughter’s sixteenth birthday week.

First off, throw out the schedules, unless you want your child a stressed out ball of anxiety, screeching monkey, and peeling the wall paper. Micro-managing is not the answer. Forget it. I think the most routine we…

Call me old-fashioned, but a clean home does wonders for me. And not for just me, for my family.



At this stage in our lives, a time when four out of five of us are at home nearly all hours of every day, a clean home keeps us sane. Daily cleaning provides us with a sense of peace, routine and respect for our home and ourselves.
