Some people would say that the cost of silence is free. Those people are not mothers. There is always a cost. Like when your toddler is having a full on tantrum during the 2nd hour of a 14 hour trip so you give him the remaining ½ of a chocolate bar knowing full well that it will leave the worst mess on him, the car seat, the car, etc. but your sanity and that of your husbands is well worth the mess. Or maybe you plopped junior in front of the TV…Continue

Over the weekend I read an interesting article in the Los Angeles Times about the future of wine and it's being called: The Miracle Machine. The proposed Miracle Machine is the blessed counter top product that would give the everyday wine lover the ability to turn water (and a few prepackaged ingredients) into wine.
Two big time wine guys (with lots of fancy wine related titles after their names), have been burning the midnight oil alongside the computer…Continue

I started participating in #ASKAWAYFriday and I have enjoyed it. I love connecting with other bloggers and learning more about them.

I recently had a discussion with some of my family about the boundaries I set for myself in terms of what I keep. I have one bookshelf in my living area and it is divided up into sections; organizing books, business books, social media books, travel books, hiking guides, and of course, fiction books to keep and some are in a “to read” section.
I’ve been reading a lot and while I borrow a lot of books from the library, it means that my book shelf recently runneth over. Instead of…Continue

Yesterday afternoon when my son got into the car, he was asking his sister if she ever put salt on ice. I didn’t realize that he was talking about putting the salt and ice combination on his skin. I just assumed that his science teacher was teaching them about temperature changes using salt and ice. Then this afternoon, I noticed a huge red spot…Continue

My daughter was born deaf and wears two cochlear implants. While the cochlear implants have changed her life, she is still considered deaf and relies on sign language when her batteries or if there is something wrong with her implants. It wasn’t unheard of my daughter going without an implant for several weeks when she only had one implant. We decided to get her a …Continue
I like to consider myself a creative person. But a certain topic that occurs at this time of year always renders me stupid.
Our elf, Marty, first joined us in 2011. This was the first year that the Elf On A Shelf really became a widely known phenomenon. The elves were intended to cause all kinds of mischief around the house. I intended for our elf to be somewhat of a classroom monitor who would report back to Santa any notable behavior. Our elf didn’t only appear at Christmas…Continue

When I was in fourth grade, I remember watching Saturday morning cartoons with my younger brother while my mom would sleep late. In between these cartoon shows, ABC began airing these four-minute music videos by a Puerto Rican group of teenage boys who called themselves Menudo. While my brother would point and laugh at these dark-haired pre-pubescent boys wearing matching outfits, shaking their little hips and singing Spanish songs about shopping malls and…Continue

The biggest challenge and struggle in my life right now is not letting my work mess with my head.
I am working full time and although the job in itself would not be that bad, the environment and people make it the wickedest experience. Quite often I ask myself it this all worth it?
Life has evolved in such a way that it’s become a chore. Is the purpose really to spend our life laboring away, (contributing to) producing a surplus of products/services…Continue
