Hey folks, this is my first post here and I am really excited. I love gardening and I am sure many of you would too. So here is an article for all you people looking to have a kitchen garden of your own. I would really appreciate comments and suggestions.
The only thing that distinguishes a kitchen vegetable garden from any other sort is that the
shrubs and plants are specifically selected to be eaten. Given that, the primary consideration in choosing your plants is what you… Continue

So there are people who blog for business, and people who blog as a journal and after M-Lyons hung out "God Blogging" the other night I asked myself what is what that I liked about blogging anyway???
Well - One I love it when someone takes the time to read my random rambligns and then they let me know they did so - that is such a good feeling... but I think too it is total narcissim on my part. I google my name and the entire page is me... and my blogs (seeing as how I blogspot and that is… Continue

So after too many nights staying up, organizing, packing and being bossed around by my husband... we are on our way. I spent this morning keeping Bitsy and M-Lyons out of the way as the rental house was deep cleaned by a GREAT group of girls... crazy... I cannot stand working with this cleaning business. The owner and who ever she has running the office cannot get their act together. And then they promise whatever it is the client is asking for even thought they know they may not be able to… Continue

As I read this article
, I could feel my blood starting to boil. Parents at Wright State University have created a "mentoring" program for black male students that is essentially a hand-holding program for parents who can't let go or can't trust their sons enough to be men and handle their business. If you have done your job right, parents, you shouldn't have to follow… Continue

packing, packing, packing...
I spent my younger life moving... but packing was a no-brainer... my mom sent us to a friends, the moving truck came, and voila we were packed.
Here I am packing, with a 3 year old and an 18 month old "helping" a 10 year old who doesn't want me messing with her stuff, a husband who changes our departure plans daily and a son who wants to have one more friend from school over...
and another son who is being refreshingly undemanding at the… Continue

Jonathan has been completely uninterested in sleep this week.
Too bad that is not the case for me.
I am sleep deprived. Apparently playing and making messes are more important to an 18-month old than drifting off into a pleasant sleep.
What? You already knew this?
OK. And when were you planning to fill me in? Never?
You just wanted to laugh at me, didn't you?
Yeah, so Wednesday night was the worst night for my sleep deprived… Continue

Our community’s foundation is predicated upon all of us being aware of the amount and types of foods we consume.
We discuss what we eat, compare and contrast our experiences and issues about diet, fats, the consumption of fruits and vegetables, and so much more.
But do we watch what we don’t eat?

So, we all know what PPD is. We may have even experienced it. Do you know about PAD? I didn't and boy did it knock me for a loop... if you are in the position to support an adoptive parent please keep PAD in mind and let your friend know if they start to exhibit symptoms. If you are a new adoptive parent, just know that PAD is real. It happens, and it isn't your fault.

Yo Betty, lets go camping and pack the cocktails! A review and giveaway!
Where I live, Memorial Day weekend is the kick off for camping season! Except the cost of gas is $4.20 a gallon and its freezing cold. I haven’t seen too many campers headed into this normally booming tourist town. I could be wrong though. Personally, I’m not much of a camper but that doesn’t mean I haven’t slept ina tent with gross, camp fired scented clothing and toxic bug spray fumes and the sticky… Continue

For today’s post, I’m focusing the use of, or rather the non-use of seat belts because it our national Memorial Day. I think that it’s very apropos.
A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)… Continue

it is WAY past bedtime and my 3 year old "M-Lyons" does not want to sleep. She is staying up to make sure her daddy does come home and to hang with mommy. She is sitting next to me with a pocket sized Bible, and an old key board, alternately fipping through her Bible ("God Book" Mommy) and reading and then typing madly. Hmm... at least she has a Bible...
Daddy just arrived.
Perhaps we will get her to bed now...

I started writing for AC kind of on a lark... I stick to two general topics "interesting people" and things that matter to me as a mom... this one, however, is a pretty good intro to my "why" behind Arbonne.
Comments always welcome.
