Eating After a Lip Lift

A lip lift is an operation that modifies the appearance of the lips to a more appealing one. It reshapes them to enhance the facial area above the lips. Most people who undergo this procedure usually have an elongated gap between their noses and lips and want to make the…

Time? What Time?!

So, I took a training on time management last Friday, and I am just now getting to post about it.  The training itself was enjoyable, and I'll tell you some of what I learned- but first - can someone please explain to me how I'm supposed to manage time that doesn't exist?



Maybe that's a bit dramatic, but it's really how I feel this week.  Too many things on my plate, all of which seem pretty important.  It stresses me out and makes me feel more disorganized than I already am.…

End Weekend Insanity

Get More Out of Your Weekend

I used to be a madwoman on the weekends.  Dr. D. avoided me Saturday mornings as I rode around on my broom frantically trying to cram in as many tasks before noon as possible.  As a busy working mother, I found that my weekends were consumed with catching up on all of the stuff I couldn't  get done during the week -- laundry, cooking, errands, you name it.  Even before…

Kind of Like Groundhog's Day

I've been telling my husband lately that my life is a lot like Groundhog's Day.



Monotonous. Yes. But I'm actually the one choosing to shape it that way, since it keeps everything flowing smoothly and sanely here.



My personal Groundhog's Day is complete with:

* Anticipating hunger by pre-preparing snacks.

* Thinking of meals in as far advance as I can stand, so I don't end up in a hot…

Reflections of a Recovering Good Girl

Get More Out of Life by Ditching Your Inner Good Girl

Hi, my name is Portia and I am a recovering good girl. I think as the oldest of three children I came to my good girl tendencies naturally. At school I studied hard, tried really hard, got good grades and helped my teachers after school. I was such a good girl that during the planning of my high school’s (unsanctioned) senior skip day I was asked to collect my classmate’s money…

Washing Dishes...Again

When we moved to our new home eight months ago, I was worried. You see, our new home has no dishwasher. And I had kind of made a personal vow that I would never move to another home without a dishwasher again until all my kids had left the nest.



I love dishwashers. Matter of fact, if I had to put all my appliances in order (yes, odd, but something I've done while living without electricity in the rainforest), it would be like this:

1. Stove (Burners beat out all. Plain and…

Email Management: Using Multiple Gmail Accounts

iPhone Email Management: View Multiple Accounts At Once

Make email management easy by viewing all of your email accounts via the  feature on the iPhone or iTouch.  

These days many of us have multiple email accounts.  At the minimum we have one for work and one for personal use.  Most likely you have many for personal use and maybe even a couple for work.  It is easy to waste a lot of time logging in and going through email in each of these different accounts.…

Motivation to get out of bed

Yesterday I was so tired and lacking motivation to get out of bed, I decided to stay in bed instead of getting up early and taking a shower before my little monster woke up.  Boy, did I pay the price for that decision.  Instead of the nice, relaxing shower I usually take while she is sleeping I had a really hot and then really…

The All-Purpose Cloth Napkin

2010-06-13 - Simple Sunday - The All-Purpose Cloth Napkin



Years ago, when I moved out on my own, I didn’t have much money. As I began figuring it all out with limited funds–simple, frugal living happened naturally.



Paper towels cost money, so I began to use them with more thought (completely opposite of how…

So Many Books...So Many Colors

A task for the kid-less weekend…



Yep. What do I do when the girls are at their grandparents and my wonderful spouse is at work?Organize our book shelf by color! Yes, I’m weird. (And just in case you think I’m nuts too, I also took walks and had lots of time to write.)



I’d seen this long ago on some blog and thought, “Now that would really improve our bookshelf.” I’m always searching for ways to simplify things in our home since clutter and mess really…

5 Simple Ways to Teach Children to Clean

Call me old-fashioned, but a clean home does wonders for me. And not for just me, for my family.



At this stage in our lives, a time when four out of five of us are at home nearly all hours of every day, a clean home keeps us sane. Daily cleaning provides us with a sense of peace, routine and respect for our home and ourselves.



If your children are still under the age of five, you’ll find their natural instincts to be involved in most clean up is…

Another Way to Go Green: Freecycle.com

It’s spring cleaning time, and between the nesting and the mad-rush to get things into a comfy place before my husband returned to work, our house is feeling pretty “clean” at this moment. That is if you can look beyond the disassembled couch, sea of blocks, piles of books and dress-up strewn about the house. So, when I think of spring cleaning I think of not just cleaning, but getting rid of things, starting fresh for the year. And on that note…



I still remember the day…

Dining Out on a Budget

One way to save money is by eliminating or cutting down on dining out. My family of four has put a limit on dining out to once a week and even with that, we almost always use a gift card, a coupon, or dine at a place where kids eat free.



Where do the gift cards come from?



  • Mostly from doing…

~ If we get split up at the mall, here's the time and place we'll meet.
