1 YEAR 12 MONTHS 365 DAYS 8,760 HOURS 525,600 MINUTES 315,360,000 SECONDS A couple of months ago I came across a blog post about a very interesting topic. When I saw the title of the post I immediately raised not one but both eyebrows and let out a quick hmm. As I read the content [...]

Pulling the Weeds and Trimming the Hedges.

Pulling the Weeds and Trimming the Hedges.

And this just in: “I’m making some changes in my life. If you don’t hear from me you were one of them.”~unknown So nice, I had to say it twice! The second time doesn't sound as cruel as the first. At this stage of your life change, it actually might be music to your ears. Now [...]

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Change?

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Change?

Over the next few days I will be sharing my opinion on the importance of something we all need yet many despair. "Change is hard at first, messy in the middle, and gorgeous at the end.~ Robin Sharma The only thing harder than personal change is finding that needle in the haystack. Over the years [...]

Reversing Murphy’s Law or, at least, remaining sane while it wreaks havoc.

Reversing Murphy’s Law or, at least, remaining sane while it wreaks havoc.

For those of you who are not familiar with Murphy's Law it simply states anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Feels good to have a name for the chaos in your life now, doesn't it? Have you ever had one of those days where Murphy's Law and all of his friends camped out [...]

A Cup of Coffee

A Cup of Coffee

It's amazing how normal everyday things can be a source of inspiration when you have the desire to write. Something as simple as a cup of coffee can help you tell a story. Imagine sitting across from someone whom you haven't seen in years. Imagine, placed between the two of you, a table on which [...]

Family Ties

Family Ties

It's true. Our family are the first friends we have in life. They are the ones who witness just about all of our firsts. They are the ones who pick us up when we fall-after they laugh, of course. They are the ones who wear our clothes without permission or steal the last ice cream [...]

The Top 25 Things I Don’t Understand.

The Top 25 Things I Don’t Understand.

  Morning people. You know who you are. You guys wake up like the Looney Tunes Tasmanian Devil and immediately start hurling your good mornings and chipper smiles all over the place. I secretly hate you! People who watch tv shows that you dislike but insist on having a full-blown, one-sided conversation with you in an [...]

Reflection

As Sunday nears to an end, I prepare for the week ahead.  Dinner made (vegetable lasagna and garlic bread).  Check. Laundry done (done as in washed no guarantee on the fold).  Check.  Kids ready for school.  They are today but, as routine goes, they won't be able to find anything tomorrow.  Ditto for my husband.

The Countdown Begins

Well guys, it's that time of the year again!  With the start of New Years Resolution season vastly approaching, I thought it would be fitting to highlight some resolution inclusions that are definitely worth considering for the new year, new me crowd. Getting healthy and staying healthy is not just about what you eat and [...]

We Can’t Be Friends…Or Can We?

Among the top age-old debates is the controversial question, can men and women be friends? As a woman with male cohorts, I can confidently say that, yes, a platonic relationship can exist between the sexes. We can stand to gain valuable insight from the benevolence of having friendships with the opposite sex. Having male friends, [...]

A Cure For Chaos

A Cure For Chaos

It's that time of the year again. The slow trickle of the back-to-school celebrations have commenced! Newbie back-to-school parental units, fret not. You'll catch on. This is the time of year that your home becomes more hushed during the day and bedtimes arrive a little earlier at night. For parents that means the first and [...]
