A warm-hearted technician helped the author through a scary rite of passage.
Over the last 10 years, as I journeyed through my thirties, so many ‘marvelous’ things have happened. Grey hair, my metabolism changing from ‘not so great to begin with’ to ‘that of a bag of rocks’, the constant, and I mean constant, ticking of my biological clock (if you listen closely you can probably hear it right now) and now that I have turned 40- my first… Continue

Original Posting at NewlyParents.com
In a random stroll through the Internet today I came across this article at yourtango.com entitled, "15 Signs You're Meant To Be". After glancing through it I thought I would apply it to my husband and I to see if the results match what I think.
1.) You tell him things you don't tell anyone else.
Very true. My husband is my vault… Continue

Ever since the quirky Flight of the Conchords series appeared on HBO, people have been telling my husband that he looks like Jermaine Clement, the sideburned, black glasses-wearing, taller of the two musicians/comedians.
Skye hadn’t told me that he’s been receiving these comments from people everywhere he goes. He kept that unflattering observation to himself and sprung it on me after luring me into the mancave to watch the comedy that is woven around the theme of culture class, as… Continue

How many times as a mother do you not feel like doing something that your kids would like you to do? There have been times that my kids will ask me to play a game, go swimming or hang and watch TV with them but I say “no” either because I’m too tired, too busy or too selfish with my time.
More and more I’m being internally prompted to stop, listen to what my kids are asking me to do with them and just act in a way that is opposite of how I feel. As I take that step forward and begin… Continue

My mum arrived exactly a week ago and as always the rollercoaster has had as many highs as lows in the last 7 days and 5h09 min... I love her more than anything and she truly is my best friend. I have always had that sort of amazing relationship with her. The sort of relationship most my friends envied with passion. She is my confident and the shoulder to cry on, even miles away. We have always been able to tell her everything, I mean EVERYTHING. She knew all our little secrets as well as my… Continue

Many times I find myself wondering... Why do other women seem to love their husbands more than I love mine?
I read blogs on a daily basis and many mommy bloggers out there are going on and on about how wonderful their husbands are and how much they love them. And it makes me question our relationship.
I love my husband. And I know that he loves me. So how can we be more like that?
I've come up with a few theories that I have been putting to the test. Some of… Continue

Like all mothers out there, I love all my children the same, but differently. The amount of love I have for each of them is immeasurable, but the things I love about them and the experiences I have with each of them are quite different.
I love my first born in a special way, because he is just that … my first born. Together we have experienced so many firsts that have been indelibley etched in my brain and on my heart. God willing, we will have many more before my journey is through.… Continue

Some days, you'd think my blog was sponsored by Trojan. But this occasional venting in no way means I regret becoming a mom. I knew from the day I tossed my Pill pack that sacrifices would be part of the deal. And I also know plenty of women who'd give their front teeth to only have it so easy.
I wear my hairy legs and deflated boobs proudly, and here's why:
1. Any given day, I can handle a thousand micro-crises and be ready for more before my childless counterparts--hell,… Continue

Noah wants to be a coffin maker
Noah my grandson is six years old and we had a chance to spend a few hours together yesterday and I almost drove off the road when he told me what he wanted to be when he grew up Noah’s already talked about being a gymnastics or a clothing designer and as a family we really never worried about what he wanted to do because one of… Continue

So we are coming up to the end of the financial year, tying up loose ends, filing all up to date, ready to be archived.
Right.... and then I woke up and smelt the coffee, unfortunately towards the latter end of the financial year things have gone a bit pear shaped, so another one of my mid-year resolutions is to get more organised, and to try and get straight financially.
I'll be honest with you this year has been a struggle, living from one pay day to the next, and for a family… Continue

The one that got away....
Oh, in my story there are many. I was never a long timer in relationships. I think my longest was a year, and whew, that seemed like an eternity. I always tease Jimmy that he is my longest relationship.
I have the story that I think most girls have.
I've definitely had my heart broken. I've been hurt, lied to, misunderstood, unforgiven, broken up with for no reason, strung along...even cheated on by two different guys who I honestly… Continue

Today's Love Dare
was accomplished with a skillet of Hamburger Helper, which my husband loves, but which I find barely palatable. I consider myself an above average cook and am always trying out new recipes or creating new dishes, and while Steve enjoys most of my creations, I get the most satisfied reaction from him when I stick with the basics.
Today I made an effort to stick with the basics of love--patience and kindness.
I have… Continue

Last year I fell apart. I have been with my wonderful husband for 15yrs, including dating time. Unfortunately for a long time I didn't believe my husband to be as wonderful. We had difficulties and I had feelings that were harder to express and fix than I know now they should have been. My husband is suppose to be my best friend but I didn't feel like that. And it hurt! It hurt me to know I didn't feel it and later it hurt him. In the end I found emotional comfort somewhere else and didn't like… Continue

Today, it is so cold outside that school has been canceled. I am happy because I didn't have to get up early, get the kids ready and drag my youngest out in this freezing cold weather. However, I have things I was working on today. Trying to finish my book, returning some phone calls and doing some work on the Internet. As much as I need to work on my stuff, I have decided to finish writing this blog and give my kids 100% attention today. No phone calls, no Internet, no emails just hanging out… Continue

So, my oldest daughter is getting older and with that she wants to make more decisions on her own. I have to realize that she is getting older as much as I don't want to! In one way its great because we can do more and talk about more but then you realize how fast time goes and one day she will be all grown up and on her own. Time goes by to fast. It seems like it was yesterday when it was just her and I. Now, she has friends and those baby moments are just memories. I don't want to loose one… Continue

Hi every one, I wanted to talk about how lucky we are and how we need a little reminder of that in the holiday times arriving. I was raised with a lot of love and I'm going to give it to my precious children so they know I love them.
Many Families don't have that kind of environment and it's not obvious for them to share their love with their kids as they suffer from money problems, and are focusing on the wrong things.
Can you imagine a Christmas tree empty of gifts? Only… Continue

Ok so I got a new sink strainer and I love it!! Absolutely love it. See my ordinary metal one broke and it was a pain. When I needed it to strain it wouldn't work. When I had to empty it out in the garbage it was a big to do.
Well I found a sink strainer made by OXO. It is silicone and the best thing about it: It si so simple to clean out. Just push it through until the one side pops out.
Love doing the dishes and cleaning the… Continue
