Eating Healthy With A Busy Schedule

So we're all busy right? Running to and from places. To Starbucks, to the office, to visit an elderly grandparent, to the gym, to an extra-curricular activity, a meeting. Running running running. And yet, I always roll my eyes at those skinny girls who say, "I just don't have time to eat!" Yah, WHATEVER! Rome could be burning, and there I…

A Week of Insanity

I'm starting to think October just really ain't my month. So, you all know about the scare we got from our little one a couple of weeks ago.  Well unfortunately, we are just coming off another night visit from the Children's Hospital. In fact, more like a 1:30AM morning visit, but this time for my six-year-old. Big asthma attack at 11PM last night…

I love the display of pumpkins and mums at every grocery store or market that I frequent (and I MEAN frequent. I have three small children and a fully stocked 'fridge is a…

Parenting – Keeping Your Cool and Then Some…

Calling out all mothers!! Although, I have to say, even if you're not a mom yet nor even thinking about it (wow, you're smart... just joking!!), this has gotta sound entertaining. As mothers, we wear many hats depending on the day, the situation, or simply, our moods. Parent, friend, disciplinarian, good cop, bad cop, nice mom, mean mom, and the list goes…

Off The Fence

Hello Ladies! Today I'm taking a little "me" time. I have a nice day planned, and therefore will NOT be writing about on the fence issues. I will be starting my day off with a carpool of course, followed by a second carpool. Followed by a girlfriend's 35th birthday extravaganza. Myself, the birthday girl, and a bunch of friends will be heading…

How Fragile Life Truly Is

Hi Ladies. I had a few things I wanted to cover today, so this one will be a bit of a mixed bowl. I firstly want to thank WordPress (www.wordpress.com) for choosing yesterday's blog on GUILT as one of the featured articles of the day. It brought me insane amounts of traffic, and I was excited beyond belief. One of…

Guilt… Guilty, Guilty, Guilty!

Knowing When to Pull the Plug on your Career

Good Morning, m'Ladies. I started writing a book a few years ago. I just found it on my computer today and thought I would share the first page with you. The issues are pertinent today, and it's what some of you have been stuck on the fence about. I owned a good business at the time, but was deciding if…

Taking A Little “ME” Time

It's Saturday morning. Right now, as I'm writing, the Wii is going strong in one room, another child  is climbing on me, and my husband is calling out some order down the hallway. And guess what... I just don't feel like it all today. I just feel like sitting on a secluded beach, aqua blue water, waves crashing, sun shining,…
