Today's fun fact is that I gave blood for the first time ever yesterday. My coworker, and friend, Amy came to my office, grabbed my hand and said "Come on, you're going with me and giving blood!"
Me: Um I am? Wait, I uh *tries to think of an excuse*, uuuh, I don't really like needles you know.
Amy: *eye roll*. Come ON! Your covered in tattoos and you are going to tell me you don't like needles???
Me: Well I mean needles IN my veins. That's different.
Amy: Whatever. If… Continue

Online shopping: I know I couldn’t live without it. It’s one of the most convenient tools the Internet has to offer. Every search engine or guide plugs that they make it the easiest, fastest or have the largest selection available.
Now that green shopping has become the norm, I came across, Thepurplebook Green: An Eco-friendly Online Shopping Guide

A MESSAGE OF HOPE FROM DR. JACK VAN IMPE
Verse 13: And the sixth angel sounded, and heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
Verse 14: Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
As the sixth angel sounds, John hears a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is in the presence of God. Isn't it strange that many of the… Continue

Hello everybody, Hopefully everybody had a nice St. Patrick's day. Aside from the typical green fourleaf clovers and green beer, who knows who St. Patrick was? I have to say that I have no clue. All I know is that everybody has to wear something green, eat green bagel or green eggs and ham or maybe drink the green beer. Anyway, it was a fun day here in downtown san diego ca with lots of parties and concerts. Hope yours was fun also.

Saturday night, 1:45 am, five years ago I might have been stumbling in from Girl Bar, but on March 14, I was up grumbling about the loud neighbors across the street who were yelling, laughing and otherwise disturbing my peace and waking my 18-month-old son who took nearly an hour to put down after a long, long day.
We started at 11 am at the closest thing to a nightclub I have seen in three years, at a playdate at Cinespace in Hollywood where the unique screening-room-slash-lounge… Continue

Today has been a real test in my new found ability to cope through stress. I finally stood my ground to my exhusband about "Spring Break"! I told him that I will wait one hour from the court ordered pick up time and then I will return home if he is late. (Which is quite frequent). SInce we live a state and a half away from each other, we both have to travel quite a ways to mid point. He didn't like that one bit, because he is used to calling all of the shots and being in control of my life.… Continue

Stop pulling your hair out!
Don’t put up with things that don’t work right.
If it can be repaired, do so.
If not, get rid of it.
First, identify and make a list
of life's little annoyances that continue to cause you aggravation. Write down things like the light bulb that blew out on the front porch, broken shoelaces, an alarm clock that isn't reliable,… Continue

I'm not sure of how many of us are affected by this recession but from the looks of it, I'm not alone. What I'm wondering is what everyone else is doing with during this time? Downsizing, job hunting, cutting back, laying awake with worry at night etc.? As I've stated before I'm taking this opportunity to prosper in my own business. Reaching for what it is I really want out of life. I'd like to encourage you all to do the same. No matter if you've been laid off or not. Take this time to… Continue
