Cottage Cheese and Rolling Pins

I am all about the cellulite.  Not getting it, although I have become a bit obsessed about having it.  As I mentioned in Homeotherapy, I have a Home Spa Kit that I picked up in a bargain bin at Borders, complete with rollers, files, mitts and a recipe book.  In the recipe book was a nifty recipe for ridding oneself of cellulite.  It required essential oils of grapefruit, thyme, fennel, lavender, geranium and juniper berries mixed with two cups of…

Coyote Ugly Crying

I’ve been crying a lot lately.  Normally I would assume it is just PMS, but since I am winding down on the PMS front, I don’t think it is fair to blame my crying jag on PMS.  I know it is pre-menopausal related, but it is really hard to call it PM….wait, it is PMS.  It’s just that the “M” now stands for something else.  Gosh, I feel so much better realizing I still have an acronym to blame for all my blubbering.

Embracing the Hour Glass

“Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.”

Nope, this is not about Days of Our Lives, or soap operas, or even time or sand…it is about aging and accepting the parts of us that no longer look like a twig, but now look like an hourglass.

Old High School Hurts

The other morning, I awoke to a cold, rainy day. I got the kids off to school and made the long commute to my office via the staircase. I sat at my desk, my coffee in my hands and my feet propped up, listening to the rain. It was a few minutes before 7:00a and it was still dark outside. I knew any motivation I might have to get dressed and go to the gym was slowly fading away. I needed to do something to cheer me up a little, and to keep me from commuting back to my bedroom and crawling…

The Trouble with Titles

I am always amazed at how some bloggers seem to effortlessly put out a blog a day, day in and day out. I guess they can sit down at their desk in the morning, and over coffee tap out 500 words that are witty, or wise. I just don’t work that way. I am an uber-organized person, or at least I try to pretend I am, and I need to write on a schedule. Everyday, Monday through Friday, I try to write something. I like to write a post for A Mother’s Hood and because I actually get paid at…

Hash Wednesday

...Yes, you read that right.  At the University of Illinois, we celebrated Hash Wednesday.  Because of the inclement weather of east central Illinois, Hash Wednesday was later in the spring semester, when it was sunny and warmer, usually after spring break and a few weeks before finals.  For one day, every spring the main quadrangle would secede from the nation and become its own country…where smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol was legal…for all ages.

Published.

Yesterday I became a published author. Not an author of a whole book, but a published contributing author. A published, contributing author in a book that was printed and showed up on a bookstore shelf. The latest Chicken Soup for the Soul New Moms came out yesterday and you can find me on page 231.

There Used to be a Peninsula

My husband, like most men, is going bald. He is the unlucky recipient of the androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) gene. And to add insult to injury, what hair he does have is starting to turn grey.

Poo-Poo Gumballs

My husband’s name should be the Candy Man, not Colby. Colby is a man with a penchant for all things sweet. Usually this isn’t a problem, but when it involves two little co-conspirators, then it can becomes a problem. I can’t trust Colby to go to the grocery store for me without him coming home with candy, ice cream, or baked goods. Somehow, when I send him out for broccoli, I get broccoli plus refined white sugar products.

Tilting at Windmills

 

The hardest thing about being a parent of special needs children is…

Wow, I can’t tell you what the hardest thing is because it keeps changing. When it was just Elliott with her RAD, there was a small chance I could keep all the balls in the air. I had a fairly good handle on her current issues and how she was handling them. She has made great progress over the last 10 months, but she still has her moments.
