It’s hard to believe our twins are already two. I have been eagerly watching them grow and hit developmental milestones, yet the graduation from baby to toddler is paired with feelings of sadness and worry. My babies are grown and it’s happening fast. Just as it did with Thomas. Days… Continue

Before I became a Mother, I had a long track record of successful endeavors. I was driven by an internal force that was more powerful than me. When I set out to do something, I would not stop until it was done. My identity was tightly knitted by my attachments to hard… Continue

It is wonderful to develop a loving attitude toward your work and having some pride in what you do. In my opinion, a good place to work is anyplace that pays a fair wage for a fair amount of labor. Based upon that definition, there are good places to work in almost every industry and almost every person has the ability to work for a good employer. Your job and how it is viewed is determined by you. It is important to have a sense of pride about the work that you do in order to have the… Continue

Reposted from my blog Living Lusciousness
came out with Own Your Beauty and I felt so inspired by what it means! It puts in mind my favorite Dove soap campaigns about real beauty and a positive self-image no matter the size, shape or color you are. Olay also has the Love The Skin You're In campaign that features caring for your skin and keeping it healthy. I'm absolutely happy that big… Continue

Writing prompt instructions:
This week we're going to switch gears and write a little poetry. Writing poetry helps us work on cadence and rhythm which can make for better fiction. So by flexing our poetry muscles, we can in turn create more fluid fictional pieces. Please write a narrative poem that focuses on the workings of a family, whether it be your own or one that you've created from scratch. Good… Continue

I found a nail salon does the trick.
I realize it's a risky endeavor and it could have gone a completely different way. I was a brave future step mom to take that chance. This is where I use the tired old excuse; I only had one child to raise and with… Continue

How long would it take to get there? Can we reach it with our spaceships? Can we see it in our telescopes?

Is it just beyond our nature walk? Half past, the serene beauty flowing under picturesque landscape. A path we… Continue

Have you ever seen that movie, Sliding Doors
, with Gwyneth Paltrow?
It's about a girl who loses her job. She goes to catch the tube home early. In one instance she makes the train, but in another (parallel) instance, she watches the doors slide close, and she misses it. The movie follows both scenarios.
This movie fascinated me on the scale of what if? The what… Continue

Two summers ago, these two little girls came unexpectedly into my life. Unexpected because I did NOT want to date anyone who had children. Not because of the children, I love kids. It's the other parent I have problems with and that messy situation is a little too much, so I thought. There's plenty of single childless men in the sea, right?
But.......the man upstairs had other plans (and isn't that JUST what I get for thinking that?).
I am glad he knows better than I,… Continue

Possible? Plausible? Urban legend?
Actually no. Listen all you parents of young girls, you don’t have to stress. I have the secret to success and since I have been asked, many times to share it, I thought, what better way than my daughter’s sixteenth birthday week.
First off, throw out the schedules, unless you want your child a stressed out ball of anxiety, screeching monkey, and peeling the wall paper. Micro-managing is not the answer. Forget it. I think the most routine we… Continue

Not life. Not spirit. Not soul. My job. I quit my job and I have no regrets.
No job is perfect, there are always little things here or there that could change. Sometimes workers might not see the “big” picture that a company does. One particular way is not always the best way and we have to rely on management, trusting they know what is best, for the smoothness of the company operation. It takes a lot of confidence… Continue

I’ve been car dancing for as long as I can remember. Maybe I got a little more free with my moves when tinted windows became popular. I guess I thought I was semi-hidden until someone I knew saw me and never
let me live it down. Eventually, I just didn’t care anymore. I busted
my moves, cut my rug, and mashed those potatoes – in the car, in the
grocery aisles, on the sidewalks. If the mood struck, I was DANCING.
Of course the fine art of car dancing is no fun alone, so… Continue
