New Year, Same Vision

( Me )

I’m not a big fan of resolutions. When I have made them, I have typically broken them right away. It’s just not the way I enact change in my life. That said, I do like to reflect on the past and think about areas of my life that I’d like to change or keep moving […]

Voyeurism, Holidays and the Guilt Factor

( Me )

I haven’t written here much lately because I’ve been busy with this and that and far too many product reviews and kids and hives and Christmas and… bunches of other stuff. The kids are playing nicely together and I have a moment so let’s see what I can do. I was just reading a blog […]

Food Allergies Revisited

( Me )

So, I’ve been coping with a mysterious case of hives for more than 6 months. They started small and I didn’t realize what they were. Over the past two months, the hives have gotten increasingly worse until the point where I wasn’t sleeping, barely working and stumbling through my job as a parent. Not good. […]

Mama’s Holiday Wish List Meme

( Me )

TodaysMama and Provo Craft are giving away a sleighful of gifts this holiday season and to enter I’m sharing this meme with you. I don’t usually do things like this, but they’re giving away goodies from Provo Craft and I might just walk on broken glass to get freebies from Provo Craft. 1. What 5 […]

Saying No and Setting Boundaries

( Me )

I recently canceled my trip to the Type-A Mom conference in Asheville, NC. I was really looking forward to it as a way to re-connect with some of the fabulous ladies I met a BlogHer. I booked it while still on a BlogHer high, but over the next few weeks I was asked to speak […]

Things Are Looking Up

( Me )

Yeah, yeah. I’m overdue for a post here. Then again, this is my spot to do whatever I want, right? I’m here in good spirits. First of all, an overdue link to an article I recently wrote for the 360PR Trendletter on Dad Bloggers: http://www.360publicrelations.com/trendletter_0709_web.htm#daddy. It was fun writing about something a little different and […]

Universal Balance

( Me )

I am a firm believer that you have to remove all of the negative forces in your life to make room for the really good stuff. It’s not some weird metaphysical thing, either. It’s simple. If you’re wasting energy on negative things, you don’t have it to reach for the positive things. And, if you’re […]

Mom’s Nite Out

( Me andMy Family )

Mom’s Nite Out with My Favorite Ladies!

Loss, Love and Eveny Knees

( Me andMy Family )

We buried my grandmother yesterday. She passed away late last week and I’ve been trying to figure out how to explain what I was feeling at the time.

No New Members in the Food Allergy Club!

( Me )

So, Bug has been breaking out in a rash around his mouth and we’re pretty sure it’s a mild dairy allergy. He had a dairy allergy as an infant and at his last test, it was still a low positive. The worrisome thing is that it wasn’t bothering him and now it is, which suggests […]
