Well, my rant from the other day has come to a happy resolution.
Before I go any further....I must clarify. I did not intend to paint my amazing, handsome, incredible, smart, dashing, sophisticated, loving, caring, considerate, awesome, dapper.....(KISS!KISS!) husband in a poor light. He truly is amazing and went the extra mile to help our daughter recover her losses. After the emotional dust of me going into fighting mode for my daughter, we calmly discussed many options about how… Continue

One of my favorite memories of fall from my childhood is coming home from school one day and seeing the our house turned into a festive Halloween spectacular.
My family had never really decorated for Halloween before. We always went trick-or-treating, but the whole Halloween scene was not really our thing as a family. We dressed up as angels, fairies, rag-dolls; things that were fun but not scary. Ghoulish garb and horror based themes just didn't sit well with three girls growing up… Continue

Just a reminder as October is nearing an end. This is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. Remember to do your self exam, schedule your mammogram and make an appointment for your clinical exam (Dr. exam).
This month, my blog http://www.azmomofmanyhats.blogspot.com has been dedicated to cancer awareness. I have shared my sister's cancer story - her battle with IBC, How you can go PINK, Cancer Hope, and Cancer Blessings. I shared information about IBC and posted resource links for… Continue

At first glance, these two words don't fit together. They appear to be an oxymoron. How can cancer, something so horrible and devastating, be paired with such a lovely word as blessing? How can a word that brings on the feeling of mire and darkness sit next to a word of hope and light?
I would say that they do fit together. I know my sister Amy would.
Amy and I have been in almost daily contact since her diagnosis. Many of the days have… Continue

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

I am writing this with the permission of my beautiful sister, Amy.
Several months ago, Amy noticed some changes in her breast. But, she didn't think much of it. Like many women her breasts had always been a little lopsided, so when that increased, it wasn't that concerning to her. She felt some fullness ans soreness, but she had breast fed her son when he was a baby, and the feeling felt similar to when it was time for him to nurse. Her breast looked rashy and was a little itchy, but… Continue

Elsie and Fina stand at my bedroom door. They anxiously await the treat in the pantry, the treat that I give them each morning. They follow me downstairs into the kitchen prancing and voicing their excitement for the yummy morsels they are about to get. They beg, sit, then in a single bite their treats are gone. They stay underfoot as I prepare my morning coffee, hoping that perchance, I will show them mercy and give them one more treat. They stare at me with longing eyes.
Once they… Continue

"Medium mochajava, half-caf, soy, sugar-free, no foam, no whip, 115degree, latte - double-cupped and sleeved."
"Large caramel, skim, decaf, iced, upside down macchiato."
" Small drip. "
Isn't it amazing that there is a whole culture and language associated with coffee? This coffee culture looks and sounds something like this:
Inhabitants enter their caffeine habitat and form a long row, each facing the back of the next. They stand in silence,… Continue

Oh...It seems like yesterday.
We had just spent the summer with my parents. I couldn't wait to be back home with my husband whom I missed terribly. My girls, likewise missed their daddy and were anxious to be home with him.
We boarded the plane looking fresh and crisp in our nice white summer clothes. The girls were wearing matching white shirts with sweet little green frogs that I had just happened to find in all three sizes. I was wearing crisp white linen shirt and… Continue

Part of the Body: Elbow
Since moving here to Arizona, this is how many of our family dinners end. No, this is not a regional tradition or an activity mandated by some obscure state law. This is not out of observance of any religious activity. Nor is it because we have some strange vocabulary obsession. This is the result of a school book sale.
It all started about six years ago when my daughter… Continue

Now, I'm no ace of cakes.....but, I can make a pretty pastry if I do say so myself.
I've been making cakes for about 15 years now. It started with a class at an arts and crafts supply store and has become a long lasting hobby. Since my first cake ( a dalmatian cake for my daughter's third birthday) I've crated a litany of cakes. Wedding cakes, birthday cakes, shower cakes, baptism cakes....cakes with flowers, cakes with motorcycles, cakes with cartoon characters, cakes with… Continue

Boy! Some days I feel like I'm just not any good at anything!
This morning I woke up 45 minutes late. My kids in turn were running late to school. My house was (still is) a mess - didn't get the dishes unloaded last night or the laundry done or the miscellaneous clutter put away. As I picked up a friend to take to our Women's Group at church, I apologized profusely for the mess that my car was...and for being late. I over-scheduled my youngest daughter's activities for the weekend,… Continue

Today I choose to wear a patriotic American Hat.
If you were to ask people what that hat looked like, you would probably get a variety of different descriptions, maybe even none that were exactly the same. Some might say that the hat looked like marching in a parade that supported, celebrated or protested something. Some might say that it looked like standing up for a particular cause. Others might say it looked like speaking out against that same cause. To others it may look like… Continue

Hello all!!! Like many of you, I am a mom that is in a transition period in life. My kids are getting older and don't need my hovering attention anymore. Motherhood is changing for me and I am moving in to a sub-phase of motherhood that I like to call me-hood. I have been so focused on mothering for so long, that I now feel the need to reconnect the neuro pathways in my brain that tell me who I am. I am hoping that through blogging, I can connect with other moms that may be in the same… Continue
