So, there is something that is a huge part of my life these days that I was not sure if I wanted to publish in a blog... but last night I realized that it truly and irrevocably impacts who I am, so I need to include it here....
I am in a 12 step program for addiction... my particular vice is not really important to share, and since they are supposed to be annonymous, I will keep that private for now.
But last night was an amazing meeting for me....
There was a… Continue

Since I got my new camera, I just had to go to the beach today and both walk and, of course, snap some cool photos with my new lens.
In fact, I was walking on the beach when an Earthquake hit Southern California today.
I had no idea it occurred let alone the fact I didn’t feel it.
It wasn’t… Continue

Ever get asked that question? Sure. Have you ever been asked that question by your husband? This is a very famous saying in our family with all the men. This is their classic question after one of us falls/hurts ourselves or just does something we didn’t mean to do.
Stacy: For me, I fall, a lot. I admit it, it’s embarrassing. I’m so totally uncoordinated. I can be walking straight and just fall on the ground. And every time I will get “What’cha do that for?” Hmmm let me think…I… Continue

if I am depressed or just want to take the time off and relax. My body says get up and move, go find a job but my mind says "Wait, take it all in stride and you'll be ok..
I am so confused today.. I dont have the inniative to do anything.
We were supposed to bring the granddaughter to Universal Studios but that may be on hold. I want to make sure bills are all paid first. Hoping we can survive on one major income for a while.
Why did this have to happen?

It’s been a long week, folks.
service, Grandma’s service and reading the stark words of a fellow blogger who’s just been diagnosed with cancer, I realize that staying positive is more than just a rainbow and kitten-nose outlook on life. It’s really freaking hard work!
I watch the way others cope, not in a judgmental way, but more in a “if that works for them, would it work for me?” introspective way. At… Continue

What a day I had yesterday!!! First after 5 years, I was let go from my job.
I have mixed feelings about this. First, I was wanting to leave this place for many years, but didnt want to go like this. I think we can survive now... I know we can survive!! Just have to clip coupons, look for sales and no extra things for a while.
Everyone says that God has a purpose and plan for everything. What is my purpose and plan? I dont know yet. My mom has been sick in Chicago for a long… Continue

I admit it... and I suck and I am sorry for that....
So I finished all three books in the Twilight series and I am anxiously waiting for Breaking Dawn to come out..
And it makes me think, do we always see people for who they are on the inside? It seems a central theme to these books... how often do we let preconceived notions affect who we allow ourselves to love?
I think seeing the REAL truth about someone is hard... and courageous... and its a goal to strive… Continue

After Friday there’s going to be a new revised Elle. I’m having a lower eyelid revision and I have my wonderful Graves disease to thank for it. I’m kind of freaked out because I’m going to be awake for it. I don’t know how I’ll feel as that needle gets close to my eyes, Yikes! At least my insurance will pay for it. That was a big surprise. I figured they’d say no and then I wouldn’t actually have to go through with it. So it’s now or never. I didn’t think I’d be getting plastic surgery on my… Continue

Today I was a victim of produce abuse.
I still am trying to come to terms with the harsh reality of the events that occurred today, so bear with me as I work through this as the emotions are still quite raw...
I will be the first to admit that I have some--how shall I say this--anal-esque practices. (I can picture my husband reading this post and nodding his head vigorously.) Grocery shopping is no exception.
In my defense, I am a mother of… Continue

J Man and Sissy are at it again. They both came running into the kitchen yelling “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy” non-stop. Each “Mommy” getting louder and whinier because they both want to be the first one to tell on the other. Somehow I manage to convince them to get along which results in them ganging up on me.
I’m sitting at the computer trying to figure out what to write when all of a sudden there’s a Monkey Webkins on my head. Those two love nothing better than to torment me… Continue

I'm an avid dooce reader,even though I just found her recently- like a month ago. Lately, she seems to be writing less than usual and when you get hooked on a blog, you kind of forget it's a real person writing about their daily life. They become like an online book and when you can't read what happens next, you can get frustrated. So, last night I decided to use the wayback internet machine to read as far back as the archives would let me to really get my fill of the dooce life from the… Continue

I may be stirring up the hornet's nest with my opinion
that musicians should learn to read and speak the language of music. It's true that a lot of musicians have become very successful without these basic skills, but I really don't see why they never made the effort to learn.

Let me start by saying ahhhhhh today has not been my day. So I take Katie to swimming lessons today which was so much fun and I had Collin with us as well so all 3 of us were in our swimming soups (as Katie says) and I realize I left our change of clothes bag and Collin's lunch bag on the floor of the garage. Why? you ask because I was running late and then my car wouldn't start (my brand new car) so as I'm trying to figure out what was wrong I gave it one more try and it turned on. I call the… Continue

Every year after embarking on a long summer journey I utter the very same words: "I will not get into the car with children and drive any farther than Target ever again." Well, I mostly sigh it with my fingers pressed into my eye sockets.
Last year wasn't too bad, we did Madeline Island on Lake Superior and that wasn't terribly far. Madeline has a rockin' beach which feels exactly like the Bahamas but instead of white sand and warm water has brown sand and toe freezing water, but it… Continue

I write and speak on behalf of mental health awareness. I am an advocate and an activist.
I've lived with depression my entire life, managed well with medication for the last several years. I also have two children with bipolar disorder. In our extended family this illness affects nearly a dozen others. I know the challenges. I also know the possibilites and blessings. I work hard to share a vision of acceptance, treatment, recovery, wellness and joy. All are possible!
