Matt also is a skinny man, the skinniest, like has to force a pint of Ben and Jerry’s down his throat to gain weight. I’m a saint for listening to his weight-gain troubles. A saint. Because of our own body shapes, for years doctors told us Lexi was just small because we were small. It made sense.
Flash forward to moving back to RI and…Continue

I started this blog several weeks ago to talk to other moms about my journey to become green. My hope was to share information and maybe inspire others. Being healthy, taking care of the planet and giving back are all very important to me and that’s why I typically post on my blog daily.
On a normal day, I am up at 5:45 AM. By 8:30 AM, I have gotten my son up, made sure he was ready for the day, cooked him breakfast and driven him to school. The beds are made, sinks and toilets…Continue

Little ones might be frightened. Tweens might get very quiet, and teens? They might just get angry. So how…

I’m having a bad day. I had a bad day yesterday, and the day before. I am feeling off my game. And I don’t like it.
I spent yesterday afternoon in a cardiologist’s office. For once, it wasn’t for my father, but for me. Daddy has had a couple of sets of stents placed in the grafted veins of his heart. The first round was in January, and again in April. He is fine now and is feeling much better, but the effects of sitting in the cardiac unit of a hospital have shaken me…Continue
