Do you cut an ex out of your life after a breakup? Sometimes it is too sad to simply walk away from someone completely, but then again, breakups are supposed to be sad. It is tempting and seems right to remain friends with someone that was closely intertwined in your life, but does remaining friends make things confusing and hinder you from moving on? Does cutting contact mean a faster road to moving on and starting a new chapter?

A band that I always come back to, regardless of my mood; Tears for Fears
. Leaders Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith wrote of the best new wave/pop songs in the 80s which turned into some of the most timeless pieces of music, and one of my favorite records of all time.

Everyone knows technology moves fast, but the adoption of new technologies often takes long periods of time... especially in the case of mainstream media.
Since their inception in the 1930s, vinyl records were the primary medium of recorded audio until the 80s, when audio cassettes became popular for their size. CD replaced the cassette, and though digital formats such as mp3 and mp4 have nearly replaced the cd, sales of vinyl records have… Continue

When I was pregnant with my first child it seemed that everyone I spoke to had advice to dispense on the joys of parenting. As I went on to deliver my daughter and entered the world of parenthood, I found that there was a certain aspect of parenting that everyone “forgot” to include in their offerings. Yes, parenthood is simply amazing. It is everything everyone said it would be and more. I cherish my children and even on its worst day, being a parent is something I wouldn’t trade for anything.… Continue

Wanted to share with all of you here that there is a recall of children's liquid cold & allergy medications. Below is the article from CNN!
(CNN) -- A voluntary recall has been issued for more than 40 over-the-counter drugs for children, including Tylenol and Motrin, because they don't meet quality standards.
"This recall is not being undertaken on the basis of adverse medical events," McNeil Consumer Healthcare said in a statement Friday. "However, as a precautionary… Continue

On auction at PROPWORX.
I was excited to see the dress on a mannequin to get a better idea of how to sew my own. And wear it where? I don't know. Somewhere. I would find a party fancy enough to wear it at or go out to some fancy restaurant for one of those fancy dinners that require the use of four separate types of forks. It's just so gorgeous!…

What is your defenition of acting like a child?
Would you blame a sibling disability on you dropping out of high school?
The reason why I am asking this question is because my 19 year old brother thinks I am (28 years old) is acting like a
child when he made a rude comment about one of of our favorite artist and I told him something (not being rude) back to him.The next question was asked because my younger
brother blames me on him dropping… Continue

My daughter is writing a series of books that adhere to various parts of attachment parenting. I am so proud of her. Hopefully some of her theory comes from the way I raised her and her brother and sister :-)! Nevertheless, I thought I would share a link to her website for her books.
It is: http://www.withmychildseries.com/
Her first book is entitled.... It's a Beautiful Day for Yoga!
Her second book entitled....… Continue

Research shows that children learn differently. We know that all students benefit differently from the classroom setting and that schools now try to incorporate many different styles to teach. Does receiving a grade in a class and on assignments help or hinder learning? Some children are bad test takers, while others are great at cramming the information last minute, performing well on the test but coming away having learned very little.

It's possible. I had a male friend that gave me awesome advice about men. He was right EVERY time. He defined the saying "cool people". Ladies don't fall for that one. It means your just super close to wifey material, but you are still lacking.

Whether it ws in school, on the internet in a chat room or even among friends, I have always been floored by the "Don't Speak" concept of speaking about mental health. And, whether it is addiction, depression, anxiety, dimentia, eating disorders or anything else, no one talks about it because they feel ashamed to or again, the "Don't Speak" concept sneaks up. What about Mental Health is such a scary topic? It's more common than people care to think… Continue

This is a favorite topic of mine. I say absolutely NOT and many of my friends think I'm crazy. In my mind, a true friendship is a relationship in which there is an equal give and take AND one person doesn't secretly have a hidden agenda or want something FROM you. I just feel that it's easier to have a friend when certain things aren't in the equation...in this case, that would be sex. I do understand that having friends of the opposite sex is… Continue

How many times have you had dinner with your family when you have had to go take a call or check your blackberry? We all fall victim to this. We see people in restaurants sharing a meal together where each person is on his or her blackberry for the majority of the meal. When it comes to spending time with your family, it is important to get unplugged from work and to be present and in the moment, especially with kids. Children know the difference and… Continue

I posted a blog
recently about the value of saying “No” to kids. The gist was:
1) Your kids will be fine if they don’t get what they want all the time.
2) If you’re going to say “No” then be sure to follow through – unless you like to lead the double life of parent and white noise machine.
I just discovered another good time to say “No”– when it comes to buying them nice things. Ya know why?… Continue

This is a question many fight with on a day to day routine. Finding your meaning and the way of your life is a challange that some times is never met. Figuring out who you are and what is right for your destiny. But do we really have to find our destiny? The saying where one door closes another opens. Well this fits true for many. I know that our little lemonade stands have made a splash but impact is minor to some. Money is not big in the lemonade bussiness and little donations do not walk the… Continue

With increasing requirements by airlines, most people are forced to find ways to pack light in order to avoid extra baggage or weight fees. In my travels both on tour and for vacations, I've developed very punk rock methods that anyone can use to travel with the utmost efficiency.

Our 7 year old daughter Natalie, 1st grade, has been in a wonderful school for the last 3 years. It’s a private school, arguably the top school in this area. It has solid security, beautiful campus, excellent teachers, extracurricular activities abound. It is a calm and nurturing environment for children. Alas it is somewhat exclusive and extremely expensive. In fact about double what I am comfortable squeezing out of our budget, really out of our savings. We were just notified of the award, it… Continue

In high school, the SATs were a huge pain (insert words here) for everyone involved, especially stress and anxiety provoking for the students. Parents paid through the nose to enroll their kids in SAT prep classes, while students desperately tried to raise their scores a few extra points. A self proclaimed procrastinator (and exaggerator), I even attempted to memorize a million vocabulary words the night before the test with the help of my handy flash… Continue
