** My kids think Santa can make ANYTHING, which means that I am totally and completely SCREWED.

If you've read my Mission Statement, Dreams & Goals you'll know that I want SHH to be a place where no masks are worn and all are loved. If you haven't read it, you can find it here. Today I'm being honest, no masks ;)
This week has been crazy for us. Being a stay at home family, we tend to move at a much slower pace than most. My son has been attending cub scout camp all… Continue

It's frustrating being sick. If you can't sleep but have to rest what do you do? For the first few hours it may be fun but after that it is just boring. How do we keep the mind busy while the body rests?
For a lucky few this isn't a problem. They are able to sleep and heal. Sleep is a struggle for many of the rest of us though and those hours in bed or on the couch get very long.
Whether you are a child or an adult there are lots of options though. Some you may not be… Continue

Seems like everywhere I went today I heard someone comment on how tired they felt. I thought is was funny in an interesting way since I have been feeling the exact same way lately. No matter how well I sleep and how much rest i get, lately I have been feeling sluggish. Hmm, can it be something in the air, perhaps many of us have not adjusted to the time difference or just plain ole vitamin deficiency.

Perchance? Fat chance. Sleep is not happening in my household.
The fantasy of a good night's sleep is a distant memory as I consider keeping my eyelids open with toothpicks. Yea, it's that bad.
On a recent work night, I had the honour of being woken up at 1:24am, 3:27am, 4:17am and 5:20am respectively. The last occurrence was the one where I threw in the proverbial towel, made myself a huge pot of coffee and jumped in a steaming shower with hopes that … Continue

As I sit here and type this entry on this dreary, rainy, humid Tuesday, I'm asking myself how on earth
is it possible that I'm just as tired now as I was before Kevin and I
took our 'stay'cation? Yep! It's been back to the drawing board over
here and today feels like a Monday for me. I'm already pooped! However,
we did have a relaxing, extremely needed weekend to ourselves and it
was so nice to have the weekend for just the two of us. We laid around,

While I tend to stick to writing about antiques, vintage, and home décor, today I’m venturing into the world of fashion for a change. I wouldn’t say that I’m a fashionista, but I do have a degree in fashion (yes, those do exist. Cool, huh?), and I try to pay attention to what’s out there. This blog goes out to moms or ladies over thirty who may be feeling a little frumpy today. No worries – we’ve all been there.
So this morning while perusing my new issue of InStyle magazine I recalled… Continue

Please excuse Deb's less-than-prolific (and kind of sucky) posting as of late.
As this writer's physician, I also pronounce that this letter does not violate blogging commandment number 3, as there is a legitimate medical reason behind her lack of inspiring prose (and ability to wash the kitchen floor). In particular, Ms. NoReturnMom's iron level is staggeringly low. How low? Well, an adult female should expect to see an iron count around 100, in order for… Continue

So its almost midnight here at home and my 4 year old is still awake. If he doesn't nap he has such meltdowns and then if he does we stay up late! I'm listening to his child stories of frogs, then he talks about playhouse disney, he just switched to another chair, its like he has ants in his pants.
What should I do about the naps?
Then to top it off he is the early riser in the family. Regardless of the time he falls asleep he is the one to wake everyone else up. Man this… Continue

School is out and all of my kids (nieces and nephew) came to visit. It is my job as an aunt to keep everyone entertained. From 5 years old to 11 years old, what a mess! Since they come and all want to do a collection of things I have decided to set up stations at the house. Of course, swimming, the doll section, the Wii, two TV zones, my nephew refuses to watch anything that has to do with dancing princesses, etc. They move around in the different areas, but the whole house becomes a disaster.… Continue

Any other mamas out there with the Monday morning blues? Maybe it's the "let down" after Mother's Day. Who knows. I know I've got 'em bad enough that my daily post today on ChitChatMom
was about wanting to crawl back in bed and pull up the covers.
If you've got those Monday morning blues... leave me a comment and tell me what your excuse is.
