My son's birthday just passed. Since it's the beginning of the week and we'll be celebrating on the weekend, we knew we still had to do something ON his birthday so I baked a cake and cooked dinner. We always eat food at the same time, which is whatever time I finish cooking, but we eat in different rooms. My kids eat in the kitchen, I usually eat in my room while watching one of my favorite shows and my husband likes to eat in…Continue

** A three-day weekend is directly followed by an entire week of not knowing what the hell day it is.

Before I joined Scentsy I was struggling working 2 jobs and practically homeless. After some mis-communication over parking tickets my husband and I decided to work on our marriage. One of the things I made clear was that I wanted to be independent and continue to work from home, but also make money from home. The kids were in daycare and my…Continue

That moment you realize that everything is going right, all that you need or want is coming into your life right when its suppose to be. Some call this luck, coincidence, or just plan chance, but I call this synchronicity or being in the vortex. This whole week I have been focusing my attention on what I do want. Everything you can imagine has gone wrong and I just didn't let it phase me. I just allowed the Universe to do what it must in order for me to get what I need. I have been reading…Continue

** The first day of school is a blessing like no other.

You can find serenity in learning that it can be really fun to create a family game. In most areas around the country, the new school year has either started or is about to start. At the same time, many families enjoyed the closeness and fun of the bonding and fun of summer vacation. One way to keep the fun going throughout the school year is to create a family game.
The great thing about a family game is that you do…Continue

I don't broadcast my blog as much as I probably should. So, when I do mention it to friends or families and give a brief explanation of what it is about (news that all parents could use), I usually get one of the following reactions:…Continue

As a parent, I've often found myself doing things that I wouldn't dream of doing on my own free will -- cleaning poop off a wall, catching puke with my bare hands, dining at a germ-infested Chuck E. Cheese. But the hellacious thing I got roped into doing last week on vacation? Well, that should earn me fabulous…

I've got family on my mind.
I live close to my Mother (you're welcome, Mom). But most of my extended family lives in an area of the country that requires a 9-hour car drive. (And, if you have ever been in the car for nine hours with a…

Yesterday when news of Robin Williams' death popped up in my feed I felt an incredible emptiness in my core. Despite the fact that I usually hold this kind of sadness for those closest to me, those I knew in real life, there's a deep anguish that feels like a web of energy amplified by the mere existance of 'movies' and 'internet,' of places like 'facebook' where each of my friends and acquiantences is sharing the moment to acknowledge the loss and power of one amazing individual. One person…Continue

After I posted 50 Facts, a friend mentioned to me that she didn't know if she could write one herself. And it got me thinking in tangents about things I thought about writing here a while back when I had little time to blog but plenty of inner-chatter to chat out, if you know what I mean.
I explained to her that truthfully, that list of 50 took me a few years to complete. A little idea jumping out here and there on occasion, and…

I've always been of the opinion that Play-Doh, Silly Putty, and all things gooey should be "outside" toys. They just always seem to crumble into little bits all over the floor for someone's feet to drag throughout the entire damn house. And this is EXACTLY why I should have known better than to allow my children to…Continue
