No Time For Mom's Health?

If today were three months ago, I would have said “I’m so happy to find so many moms just like me.”

Today…today I can’t say that, because it saddens me. Two weeks ago I wrote a post about the big blogger butt blues.

I won’t lie, I’m happy that so many commented, but I’ve got to tell you, at the same time, reading through the comments, breaks my heart.

So many women, dwelling in the land I lived for 4 years. A land that where everyone but me came…

I’m sharing this with you this morning not because I’m pissed, because I’m not anymore, but as a warning to you. As you can see, I’ve removed my sidebar for this post. I want your attention focused.

Time to Refocus

Well hello MBC! It's been a while since I posted here. Being 2 and 3 years old now, my toddlers are at a stage where they've finally calmed a bit and I can get back to networking. Ok, they haven't calmed that much, but at least they're taking naps again. LOL So I get two hours per day to myself.

 

Join me in a YAY!!! won't you?

 

For some reason as my son neared 3 and his baby sister neared two, they became a bit more of a handful than usual. My daughter became to…

Measure Me, If You Must

Measure Me . . .

Not by the dimensions of my waist.
Not by the cup of my bra.
Not by the width of my behind.
Not by my age.
Not by the color of my skin.
Not by the unruliness of my hair.

Measure Me . . .

Loving Your Bully

Bullying in the Rawlobsters bullying crabs

Recently Christal at So Many Ways has posted a handful of heartbreaking posts about bullying. Bullying is a subject she's living with right now through her teen and it's an issue that she had to deal with as a child too. Her posts are heartbreaking and honest and have made me cry multiple times.

I know that pain of being bullied. I went through it myself. After Christal's recent mention of an article she'd come…

Who's the "Woman of the House"?

. . . I can't compromise on the way my children are raised.

I'm their mom, what I say, goes. But my mom? She likes to undermine my efforts at teaching, raising and disciplining the teens. When I ground them and say no phones and no friends for a week, she gives them the phone and let's them go to their friends house when I'm not home. When I say a piece of clothing… Continue

Goodbye GFC, I'll miss you so.

Goodbye Facebook Like Box,

I wish I didn't have to let you go.



No longer shall I be shackled to my desk,

waiting and watching,

watching and waiting for your numbers to rise.



No longer shall I move your widget around my site,

searching for the best placement for visiting eyes.

free as a stallion that's been let loose into a…
