My cousin Cathy is a constant source of strength and encouragement to many people, most of all her four beautiful daughters and her wonderful husband Nick. As an Army wife she has endured near solitude at times moving from base to base, squishing her family into less than desirable quarters.
Beginning with her first daughter, Hannah, Cathy has been dedicated to encouraging her children to be proud of who they are, do what they want to do, learn with a passion and serve God. She has always… Continue

Looking for a job and working for a few I do not get paid at. But I thrive on bsy days. The running around multi tasking is just my nature. I just wish I could find another at home job.

I played with my good buddy Tim's musical endeavor Ohm's Law
while on our road trip. On the Friday we were in Portland we drove across the river to play at an old time soda shop called Pop Culture.
Someone caught the entire set and you can watch it here!

Give time time. I heard someone say that many years ago when I began my spiritual quest to find peace and serenity. Well Alzheimer's definitely interupted that quest. It does not allow me to be peaceful and it destroyed so many of my dreams that I was hoping were going to allow me to keep myself in serene places. I think now that time has something to do with acceptance of my situation. I want so badly to accept where I am but that acceptance is not coming as fast as I want it to. I know that… Continue

I know 29 years isnt long but I have learned alot. Here is a list that has popped in my head.
What I knew when I left high school wasnt really how the world worked.
When I was a child what was a mountain of difficulties would be like a day at the beach.
Food that was good for you when you were young is now known to be horrible.
The grass fertilizer that everyone over used was distroying the enviorment and our health.
Everything you are told is never 100% right.

As parents, we teach our children about their bodies. For those of us with children, we all know that it is no easy task when it comes to knowing what term to refer to as one's "private parts." How do we assign them names? What do we teach our children? We know that the terms we create will be used by our kids and be remembered well into their adulthood and… Continue

When she is old enough to understand this all, she will see this book and know how she has changed the world just by being alive~ A Mothers Quote
I see this quote I read and I think about our struggle as a family. We are given lessons to accomplish and come out stronger and to help others. The fight of a life time. We constantly worry about little things but isnt it amazing we even breathe ? The smile of our children and their laughter and this is for only moments in time. What a… Continue

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?
We know… Continue

A band that I always come back to, regardless of my mood; Tears for Fears

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.

Her first book is entitled.... It's a Beautiful Day for Yoga!

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
