When Death Became Him

It was a flawless morning, everything had gone perfectly according to plan and my daughter was in a fabulous mood - we dressed alike and enjoying our mother-daughter primping - then reality reached out through one call and gave me a tremendous slap to the face.







You see, I knew he would die one day and though I had wished for it, I never imagined it would be so quick or unexpected.  Not that death is normally something we plan for but I admit I thought…

Families and Fighting…Is It All Bad?

stop fighting My husband and I recently got into an argument and while of course I was right, as usual, I could not just walk away.  I knew that my kids were watching but I needed to express how I was feeling at that moment and don’t regret it.

Aren’t we supposed to save our arguments when…

Types of Folk Music and How They Can Be a Great Tourist Attraction for Lovers of Culture and History

Folk music, also sometimes known as world music or traditional music, can have a lot of cultural significance apart from the usual entertainment that music brings. Whereas there is no consensus as to what folk music is or is not, most people agree that the term was coined in the mid-19th century to describe music ‘of the people’.

It is also quite widely agreed that it was music that was meant to entertain and pass information in an age where books, TV and radios were not…

It's the first day of Summer, time for Summertime play

What else is open year round, lets the kids tire themselves out and is totally FREE? Kids get to run wild, make friends and get a feeling of independence. Meanwhile they're oblivious to the fact that we're actually watching their every move. After all, for a semi helicopter mom like me, who used to…

T is for Trip!

It won’t be long before the T’s and I make our annual Fourth of July trip to Ford City, Pennsylvania. I absolutely love the Fourth of July; the parade, the fireworks and particularly my grandmother’s homemade ice cream! I have got to master that recipe, but that’s beside the point.

There are so…

Should I Care What People Think of Me?

I will never forget one incredible moment a few years ago while working a temp job. While finishing up some work, one of my co-workers asked why I never seem to get bothered by off the wall comments by others. That day was a special day. It was the day I realized that although I've always identified myself as…

OMG I'm The Female Version Of Steve Jobs!!

Hubby is a crazy fast reader. He can blow through one of my 250-page manuscripts in an hour...less than the amount of time it takes me to drive to the nail salon, get a mani and drive home. 

He recently read Becoming Steve Jobs by Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli...in about two hours. 435 pages, by the way. What the WHAT?????…

No, I am Not Trying for a Girl so STOP ASKING!

If I had a dollar for every person that questioned me about the sex of my children and had an opinion on my non-existent future child, I would be sitting on my private beach with a delicious cold cocktail in my hand waiting for my personal chef to deliver my lunch. BUT…sadly I don’t, so I am sitting in my house writing this article…

In Seasons of Empowerment for Adolescent Girls, Ms. Roth argues that there are four seasons of empowerment for adolescent girls.

Becoming empowered to be who we are can be truly difficult. This book consists of a step-by-step guide to help adolescent girls achieve self-improvement.…

Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist - Who Am I???

Here's just one more reason why Robert Downy Jr. stands strong at the top of my "list." <3

Microsoft's social media campaign, The Collective Project, celebrates students using technology to change the world. How better than to give young children use of their limbs back using 3D print technology? That's exactly what Limitless Technology does. The volunteer group started by a University of Central Florida engineering PhD student recently constructed a special "Iron Man" arm for a…

Slime Time!

Glue

 

Pour the 1/2 cup of warm water into the glue. You can use less. This is where it gets fun to play around with the amounts and how it changes the consistency. Keep the conversation, and laughs going with the kids.

Once the water is in, you can now add the Borax solution. You can see in the picture below, it immediately starts blobbing. Colin was not all for putting his hands in…

Pearls and Yoga Pants

Being a mother, though the most amazing gift in the world is not always the most glamorous! It is messy! The house needs to be cleaned, meals made, laundry done, kids chauffeur, etc. There are no red carpets, no amazing award shows, and no races requiring fancy hats! Let’s just say my son’s Boy Scout Pinewood derby is the fanciest derby I will be attending this year! Haha! So why dress up? Why wear jewelry? Why not just be comfortable? Why…

Book Review for: Shadow of the Hawk by K.S. Jones

My initial reaction as I began to read Shadow of the Hawk was that the writing was fluid and graceful. The feel, mood and era all reminded me of John Steinbeck and I was hooked from the very start.

Sooze is a 16 year old girl growing up in the Great Depression. She has agreed to marry a man she does not love in order to save her family. She is mature for her age and you immediately feel for her. Her character is equal parts young lady and woman and the author does such…

Shadow of the Hawk by K.S. Jones

The writing is graceful and artistic. It’s fluid and organized in through and action. When I first started reading it I thought of my love for John Steinbeck and Grapes of Wrath. You get that feel of what the Great Depression was like and how families responded to it, and to each other. You feel the desperation and admire the courage and integrity of many of the people of that time. 

This story is about a young girl in her teens who considers marrying a man for the…

Lego Alert! Fifty Shades of...Brick?

You've all seen the movie trailer but have you caught...the Lego version????

I eat, sleep, breathe and step all over Legos on a DAILY!! I need to wear slippers to protect my feet from those tiny plastic pieces which have drawn blood more than a couple of times.

Then I came upon this trailer and thought it'd be apropos to share with you all, you know, since I'm a romance author as well as a mom to a bunch of little Lego master builders. =)

Happy Friday!!…
