Now is Your Time My husband and I have been doing a lot of research lately on life insurance. We know it is something important to have, especially now that we have a baby. If anything were to happen to either of us, we want to make sure that our sweet baby is taken care of. A woman came into our home the other day to talk about our medical history and to do a medical exam on us. As we were filling out the paper work, I realized something. Rewind eight years ago. My husband (boyfriend at the…Continue

In second grade we were all encouraged to create a secret code word so that if our parents ever sent an intermediary to pick us up from school, we would know it was safe to leave with that individual. (I can't remember if my word was kitten or Strawberry Shortcake.)…

Years ago when my daughter was 10, I realized that my relationship with my daughter was much smoother and easier than that of the average or typical relationship. Yes! I said easier. I have always been told, wait for it, things will change as soon as she’s a teenager.
Fast forward to age 14, the biggest challenge for myself was that she thought she was “ugly” because she has always been very tall for her age. Those feelings quickly changed after she became more involved in sports.…Continue

The biggest challenge and struggle in my life right now is not letting my work mess with my head.
I am working full time and although the job in itself would not be that bad, the environment and people make it the wickedest experience. Quite often I ask myself it this all worth it?
Life has evolved in such a way that it’s become a chore. Is the purpose really to spend our life laboring away, (contributing to) producing a surplus of products/services…Continue

I live in a home that is male dominated. I spend most of my time, it feels like, washing stained clothing, yelling to flush & wash your hands (that's just to Jacob.... the husband long ago conquered that!). And, I spend a great part of my day watching the two males & having the thought, "I.... just don't understand you people."
Getting dirty and working with tools is one of their love languages. True Story; the front end of my car is "a little broken"…

Did you know that you can teach them how to help with the laundry? Most children are eager and willing to help their parents with new things. Have your child take the sorted laundry from the laundry basket and they can…Continue

I’m a Fantasy Football wife. Not a wife that is any man’s fantasy because she buys brats and makes nachos every Sunday afternoon, takes the kids to the park during Monday night games or wears a team jersey and little else. No, I’m a wife who plays Fantasy Football, and let me tell you I’m no one’s fantasy once the games begin.
Thursday night the first NFL regular season game was delayed by a half hour and my first-round draft pick was playing. I actually got grumpy because a little…Continue

It was one of those days that you start off wishing you could just stay in bed and sleep and skip the next couple of days because you KNOW they will be hellish. My car blew up the night before. The coolant emptied and I drove it while it was overheated. So it didn’t technically blow up like an…Continue

Someone recently asked me how I got to where I am at this point in my weight loss journey.
This question led me to start thinking, "What have I done?"
No, seriously! WHAT HAVE I DONE?

We’re the first generation to hit middle age (and official “senior” status) that knows we’re going to live longer—and healthier. And that means we still have at least another 20 years to make our dreams come true.
Julia Child, Gandhi, Dr. Ruth, and authors Laura Ingalls Wilder and Frank McCourt were all late…Continue

Starting when Hana was a toddler, I’ve raised her to be very polite and respectful. Hana always uses please and thank you, excuses herself from the table, and asks before taking. Her teachers constantly rave about how obedient and helpful she is in school. I beam when people tell me how well behaved she is and how amazing her manners are. There had been no…Continue
