Media and Croatian Homemaking

(This is what 5 loads of laundry looks like at my house)

Let's Get Together, Yea, Yea, Yea

Okay, so I am a very social person.  (all of my long-time friends are going, "Nah!  Really????")

 

I love people.  I love to socialize.  I am long-winded...I love to talk.  

 

And so I just thought I'd throw out a few ways for me to stay connected with my readers - regular readers, now-and-then readers....any kind of reader out…

Recently I was privileged to be invited to participate in a round-table discussion with a handful of experts in the field medicine and 4 other bloggers who blog about their life as shift-workers.  It was a great discussion and I continue to receive valuable information from them - information that I plan…

Bananas are not only a food, they can be used as a hair conditioner or mousse

 

If at first you don't succeed, try try again.  If you've tried a few times and you don't succeed, scream, throw something on the floor and then throw yourself on the floor.  Usually this wont get your…

Suddenly Singing Again

It was rather frightening as I stood at the keyboard playing and squeaking out a few notes the best I could.

 

I could feel the blockage in my voice.  I had low tones.  A little gravely, but lower than ever, which scared me a bit.

 

I had high tones, too.  A bit thin and weak, but then - I couldn't expect…

Its Taking Over My Child

One thing I have never adjusted to is having the TV running all the time.

 

Actually, as a kid we never had a television.  As I remember it, the first TV we had in our home growing up was given to us when I was 16 years old.  It was always comical watching our friends come to visit for the first time.…

Its Taking Over My Marriage

I am a highly social person.  I love people, I love talking, I can be long winded (all my friends say, "Nah!  Not YOU!").

 

Hello, my name is Miss Sanguine.

 

Now to be sure, I am one of those unique people with a split personality.  I am also Miss Melancholy and can be as much introverted as extroverted.  But, I think my…

26 weeks - Jellybelly update

 

So, my monthly pregnancy updates sort of got left in the dust after having come back from the States.

 

I don't look much bigger than this (umm...and before all the "You're huge" and "baby #2 will be big" comments start, this shirt makes me look bigger than…

Lisa Douglas Meets Croatia

 

I was reminded of this when reading a similar post over at A Pause On the Path, a new blog I am following.  Shanda wrote about how her mom, a missionary in Africa, made an embarrassing language error and that's when I started…

Guilty or Not Guilty

 

 

I really debated about posting this.

 

I don't want to seem controversial and I don't want to use my blog for sensation.

 

Yet, somehow I know I must get some of my thoughts down on what happened Tuesday.  When I first heard the verdict, while watching Fox…

My Thirsties Cloth Diaper Story

I want to start by saying that I was not asked or paid to post this.  I have never posted a review before, and I am not sure this constitutes as a review so much as a an applause for some of the best customer service I have ever received.

 

Let me also say that having worked in customer service for many years, and having gone…

It's Taking Over My Life!

They say people spend about 30 hours a week online, playing games, on Facebook and Twitter, reading, researching...

 

That's nearly 4 1/2 hours a day.  And besides what people do for work.  Many spend their entire 8-hour workday on the computer.

 

In fact, for many social media has become a work distraction and many work…
