I’ve been thinking how bizarre it is to be one of those people who uses a leaf blower. I never thought I would be the leaf blower type, especially not the type to use one indoors. When we moved to the burbs in 1999, there were two people in my audible surroundings with a leaf blower. I imagine they happened to be in the home and garden section of one of the big box stores on the very first day leaf blowers went retail. They just had to have one, the way Homer Simpson has to have a doughnut:… Continue

I won’t say the name of this organization because then I can speak more freely, but there was a meeting last night that my son and husband attended. It was a meeting for kids. Boys only, to be specific. While I say this with complete and utter respect, compassion and understanding, women and girls have no place at these meetings. Trust me. [more HERE]

My grandmother was a breast cancer survivor. She had a mastectomy at a time when I was too young to even understand what that meant. I am now 38 and acutely aware of what it means as we honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My grandmother outlived her cancer, dying of natural causes, and I know many of you who are taking care of your elders or dear friends are praying for the same outcome.
Not too long ago I was introduced to a few remarkable women who created the TNBC foundation in… Continue

I like to believe that at Mom Fuse are all about helping moms, usually we post topics and articles on different parenting related issues but this post is more special and dear to me than any post I’ve ever done.
Recently a good friend of ours was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and their family is in desperate need of some financial assistance. She was employed as a nurse and brought in most of the money but she’s recently had to quit her job because of the cancer. Now that… Continue

I love to entertain. There's something about creating an atmosphere where people feel comfortable, enjoy good food and good conversation, and can relax that really gets me. Playing hostess is fun, and being a good (nee exceptional) and attentive hostess is important to me. I thought that if I was ever give the opportunity to have my dream business, it would be in party planning. Well, after the stress of this week, now I'm not so sure.

Author Kelly Corrigan wrote this moving essay about women's remarkable capacity to support each other, to laugh together, and to endure. This actually brought me to tears and makes me feel so proud of my gender. I also feel sorry for the men in our lives because they miss out on so much by not having this kind of support system. If you haven't seen this before please take the time to watch it now. Women are truly special and I raised 3 great ones, this is for them. I only wish I had written it.… Continue

I only stuffed my bra once.
Not bad for someone who for all of Junior High was mercilessly teased as being a carpenter's dream

But growing up, these things certainly have their impact. Now, I didn't really care. I was one of those girls that was someone embarrassed of "growing… Continue

Hello Fabulous Women!

Say Hello to The Creativity Coach!
My coaching practice and my website have been in hiatus for several months. I truly appreciate my clients (and potential clients) for being so patient with my reconstruction. As I am always committed to bringing you closer to your inspired life, I had to take into consideration my own inspiration. I spent the latter half of 2008 re-crafting my authentic life plan to understand what kind of coach I… Continue

I have to let my male readers in on a secret. A secret that is so intriguing to most men that as women we each take a pledge that we will rarely discuss this topic with you. This secret is usually reserved for "Girls Night Out" or other similar girls only events. For example group trips to the bathroom. As a man you might wonder why we can't manage to go tinkle alone, and finally I'm going to give you one of the many reasons....

Although this is written mostly from my perspective, I write this entry with the permission of my beautiful sister Amy who is a true warrior and survivor.
I remember the day last February that my sister called me.
I was sitting in my car in the parking lot at the community college where I was taking classes. My phone range, and on the other end of the line was my sister, barely able to speak. She was in tears after leaving her general practitioner's office and on her way… Continue

Pink is the new black....well at least in the month of October. In stores, newspaper advertisements and magazine articles you will see this color permeating our consumer landscape. Will you cave to societal or peer pressure and jump on the new color trend? Will you outfit yourself or your home with this rosy hue? Are you willing to go pink and support breast cancer research?
If so, read on....
Now I don't advocate going out and spending money just for the sake of spending… Continue

If you have been anywhere this month, you have probably seen the barrage of pink everything, everywhere. The sudden invasion of the oh, so happy, oh so rosy, oh so PINK is a result of October being National Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Retailers are participating in cause related marketing - the cause being breast cancer awareness. According to *foundationcenter.org, cause related marketing is when a profitable company partners with a non-profit organization to promote their… Continue
