I'm in a much better mood today than I was yesterday. Eric got a chance to Facebook me before class and said that he *did* in fact try to wake me to get me to come to bed. I'm not sure if I believe him, but at least he was feeling bad about it. When he got home we relaxed… Continue

It's an interesting time for the local real estate market in Hampton Roads, VA. I track the local economic factors for trends in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Norfolk. What I have found is that we are in a transitional time where it is neither a buyers market nor a sellers market. However, buyers think it's a buyers market and sellers expect full price offers.

The great… Continue

Remember the movie, “A League of Their Own” when Tom Hanks delivered that memorable line: “There’s no crying in baseball.” Of course, those angry words were uttered as he berated one of his players severely who then began to cry. I might be crying too after a tongue lashing like that.
But, when children are three, four and five years old, it’s not surprising or… Continue

We've all heard the tragic stories: mom or dad forgets that a sleeping baby is in the back seat and they trudge off to work with baby in the car. They come back for lunch, or at the end of the day, and are faced with a dead child. It's heartbreaking, but it happens… Continue

Hello, many moms, grandmoms, aunts and other kids' caregivers,
I am new to this forum, but I am glad to be called a mom again. I am mom of 2, now fully grown and mature "children"; one of each sex, both equally "above average," to borrow the proud phrase from "Prairie Home Companion." Nowadays my grandchildren… Continue

You will all be happy to here that I did not jump on the gurney when they wheeled my son off to surgery on Friday. Actually, I barely had time to shed a tear, or read the first page of my People magazine before they were back with a crying, maniac in my arms. The procedure went great, however, my little man is not a big fan of waking up from anesthesia with a bunch… Continue

Now forgive me for the awful things your about to read. You may wonder, Where the heck my mother was while all these things were going on.. Well, my mom was a hard worker, She wasn’t a single mom, she had to work 2 jobs most of the time while my step father was a farmer working dusk till dawn. Farming wasn’t a very lucrative paying job.

As soon as a baby enters our world everything changes. We no longer have the extra funds to eat out, nor do we have the energy. After all, isn’t just finding time to take a shower a feat that makes us smile from ear to ear?
I don’t find it necessary to be an extreme couponer to be frugal. While I would truly love the idea of being able to dedicate the kind of time, focus, and dedication it requires to take couponing to that level of success that…

At a recent workshop I facilitated, a participant shared that she didn’t understand the big ‘hype’ about having a website. Though she had one; she hadn’t attained any customers from it. I explained that having a website is a good first step, but not enough to gain clients. If you are not engaging your visitors, chances are they will never return. Do you have a website… Continue

. . . was the question from the very irritated and judgmental man who almost ran my children over in the Target parking lot! “YEEEEEEEESSSS!” was my defensive and embarrassed response.
It’s Spring Break and my “oh sh*t, I’m a stay at home mommy” hives have kicked in. I have to entertain the children all day and maintain some semblance of my sanity. It’s gonna be a long week. But, on the bright side, Camp Runamuk is in full swing.
Here’s what I learned about… Continue
