The dictionary defines guilt as “a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, or wrong, whether real or imagined.” Real or imagined, that sounds about right. Might even be more accurate, at least helpful, if they added a footnote, “Warning: Duration of guilt known to last several years. Atonement not guaranteed.” Now that’s the kind of guilt I know. Come to think of it, I didn’t know there was another kind.
It’s taken me a while, but I’m fairly proud of… Continue

I'm sure that when many of us think of Mother's Day thoughts of personalized gifts for mom and Mother's Day cards fill our heads. And some of us are even thinking of all the party invitations to Mother's Day related events and dinners that we've received. Yes, believe it or not Mother's Day is a huge deal!! Honestly, I never knew how truly big Mother's Day was until I became a mom myself.
And no it wasn't because of the gifts, the cards or all the kind words I received from husband,… Continue

Recently, DJ got a chance to ride a mechanical bull. As I stood by, I realized it translated to life. Life's like a mechanical bull. It really is. You're on this thing you CAN'T control & all you CAN control is holding on for dear life. And then? Like the bull, you get kicked off sometimes, don't ya? And whatta ya do? Lie on the ground? Run away? Kick the bull? Or...maybe like DJ, we simply get back on. If life's got you riding a…

I was looking at my mom bloggers posts and noticed it's been a while since I last posted and wanted to update everyone. First I must apologize to all my fellow friends..... I've moved and will be relocating as well. In the midst of all of the changes a close relative of mine passed away just a few days after Thanksgiving.
There have been times that I wondered when the rain would let up and suddenly realized in my conversations with God that I could learn from all life's… Continue

I have a confession to make: my name is Teri and I love reality shows!
Now, not every show is my cup of tea, but several have me by the remote
One is the Real Housewives series on Bravo. I am intrigued by different
cultures of women as well as the variations from coast to coast. Oh
yeah, I like the clothes too.
The wannabe sociologist in me is fascinated by people's behavior,
motives and… Continue

During my time a tattoo artist, I had plenty of people come into the shop asking for Koi Fish tattoos. Yes, when done correctly they are beautiful pieces, but the more people came in, the more I tested them. What's the symbolism behind the Koi tattoo? What does it represent? What does it mean to you? I wasn't being a bitch, per say, but I wanted to know what it was about the koi that was special to this person- it helped me draw them a custom one, too. I wanted to know they… Continue

Today, I hang my head in shame. Attempting to keep the tears at bay & failing dismally, I contemplate ending it all & making that leap over the Brink Of Insanity. Surely I deserve such a fate, throwing myself in to the abyss, after a day that finally saw my children turn on me…nearly in unison, almost as one, declaring me the “worst Mommy ever!”. And what was it that brought… Continue

The biggest thing I’ve learned as a parent, is the biggest thing I struggle with the most as a parent. Because it demands that I engage in a constant inner struggle with the very fabric of my being. Here’s the lesson…BEFORE I give in to my immediate reactions, stop & ask myself: are MY opinions/actions/decisions what’s best for THEM?? It’s usually not…thus the struggle. Having to back down, bite my tongue, stay out of it, go with the flow, often requires a massive dose of happy pills… Continue

I was in disbelief watching the news last month about a fatal home invasion robbery in my neighborhood. The victim had surveillance cameras outside his house and after I watched how he and his wife were forced into their house at gunpoint, I was very alarmed and terrified. I see myself vulnerable too because whenever I walk to my house leading up to my front door, I don't look around and do a quick scan of my sides or back. I just walk to my door. In the video, you can see one suspect walking… Continue

Right now I am reading a book called: You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. I love this book very much. I came across a very intresting message: I open myselfto the wisdom within, knowing that there is only One Intelligence in this Universe. Out of this One Intelligence comes all the answers, all the solutions, all the healings, all new creations. I trust this Power and Intelligence, knowing that whatever I need to know is revealed to me, and whatever I need comes to me in the right time,… Continue

A week ago, our community has faced a very sad event, a 4 year old girl has drowned in our community swimming pool. The same pool I often take my kids to. I was not at the scene, but the story has effected me very much since I also have a 4 year old daughter. I do not want to go to the details of the story because the facts are still being investigated. What I do want to ask is the foloowing question: How much can we trust life guards? Should we put all our faith in them? When you go to the… Continue

Today I was watching the Oprah show and she was talking about the most important stories so far. She brought up the Tanya Harding and Nancy Carrigan scandal. Tanya Harding had a chance to explain what has happened. What i learned from that show is that you should never judge what you see on TV because you never know what emotional pain drove these people to act the way they acted. These people act in aviolent way because they have a lot of emotional pain such as physical, and verbal abuse or… Continue

Many like to call it work, life balance…I think it is more like juggling! It is not just the job and family pins that are up in the air…there are MANY more. In my world I have the baby, the husband, the house, the career, industry boards I am on, my friends, social networking, blogs and me time. If you sit back and look at it is will make you dizzy. I have decided that the only way I can functionally get through a day and be a rock star at all of these is to juggle them and be completely… Continue

Finding a good music teacher can be a rough go. They don't usually list in the Yellow Pages. I had a couple of crummy music teachers when I was a kid. I also had some really good ones. So far, I've been pleased with the instructors I've chosen for my kids.
If you're considering music lessons for your youngster, here are some tips
that may help you along.
