It's Pizza night
at our house, and the good thing is... everyone LOVES it. I like it because it is easy! My pocketbook likes it because it is cheap!! I used to buy the Pillsbury pizza crust,
but now I mix it myself using the Kroger pizza dough packages. Let's just say that it now cost about 1/3 the price,… Continue

I am so inspired by my daughters desire, and actual action, of playing Volleyball this year. I've spent so many years on the sidelines, wishing that I had the nerve to get out there and play. Most of my life I've had severe anxiety and couldn't make myself take that first step. But, if I had the nerve, I would have loved to be a… Continue

We've all been there as new time moms. Your child cries in the middle of the night and you run down the hall to see if they are ok. You comfort, rock and sooth them and hope you can lay them back in their crib and they will fall back asleep as you tip toe out of the room and quietly crawl back in bed. When you are nursing, you do this several times a night. (Read More)

Some three weeks ago our friends asked if we would like to try out an Italian Restuarant they had recently found, good food and take your own drinks; helps to keep the costs down more important these days since I no longer work.
As part of our " keeping life normal " philosophy we agreed to give it a go, knowing as a sufferer of CFS / ME that at some point I would suffer a little bit more for my pleasure. But what do you do ? Whats the option? Stay within your four walls of home, which can… Continue

The people that used to occupy a space are ousted from their homes and forced to seek refuge somewhere else (usually the couch). Adding a twist… Continue

My niece invited all the Bleasdale women to New Hampshire to celebrate her bridal shower, and I was exited to go. L is 2 ½ now and I have never been away from him for a night. We practice attachment parenting and co-sleeping, meaning he sleeps next to me. So going to the shower meant that Don had to take care of L by himself for two days, including one night. I am the only one who can get our sweet little boy to sleep, by bouncing with him on an exercise ball or nursing him, so this was going… Continue

This scenario is all too common. Recognize it? Is this your household? 5:30 hits, the kids are cranky, singing loudly, asking questions, pushing siblings, the kitchen is hot and steaming with chicken baking in the oven while you answer the phone and say, “I can’t hear you, I’m a mom.”
It’s no secret that moms have a hard time finding time for themselves, let alone… Continue
