Recently we had some powerful storms rip through the area, causing widespread blackouts. Contrary to popular belief, losing electricity isn’t all that bad. Depending on how long it’s lost for, of course!
Some of the "upsides" to going without power I found were:
- Having an excellent excuse to make a meal out of ice cream.
- Enjoying all the candlelight
- Not feeling the need to check my social networking sites/emails/etc because I…

So then the night comes and Jaliyah… Continue

I was reading San Diego Momma's blog this morning and her post really resonated with me and got me thinking. (Thank you, Deb for inspiring my post today).
Deb's blog was about boundaries and not being able to set them. Not being able to say no. She also wrote about the inability to stand up for herself when a man had gone too far. This is the part that… Continue

Have you ever been told you have a bad attitude? I have. While I was not sure if the person’s assessment of me was correct—I’d never been told that—I did take some time to ponder over the criticism.
What causes one to have a bad attitude? Can it be fixed? How can I guarantee that I will always project a good attitude?
What I found is that there are a myriad of things which causes us to have poor attitudes: the lack of money, too much… Continue

We have all be there before. Someone asks us to volunteer for something that we have no time to do or have no knowledge about but, we say yes anyway. PTA's are notorious for this. Trust me, I know. They never lose a phone number.

After Friday there’s going to be a new revised Elle. I’m having a lower eyelid revision and I have my wonderful Graves disease to thank for it. I’m kind of freaked out because I’m going to be awake for it. I don’t know how I’ll feel as that needle gets close to my eyes, Yikes! At least my insurance will pay for it. That was a big surprise.
