The last time I went to get my haircut, my hairdresser Lynn and I were talking about how overwhelming it can be to try to fit everything into one week. We were saying how great an 8th day would be. I was thinking of all the things I could get done on that extra day. But, Lynn had a fantastic idea. She said the 8th day should be your sleeping day. You could choose where in the week to have your day and you could sleep the whole day. And other people would be understanding when you turned down… Continue

Losing a child is the worst pain any parent could ever have to go through. They shouldn't have to go through it alone.
Something as small as a note of encouragement waiting in the mailbox can be the hope they need to make it through another day. Sometimes, that's the best any of us could hope for.
When my dear friend lost her baby girl at the age of 4 months, I could think of nothing to do to help her. So, I began writing and I began asking others to join me. You all… Continue

Today we had the unpleasant experience of letting Diva endure a life lesson.
You see, last night at bedtime she says to me that she will need me to get her sand (ah, yeah, sand) to take to school in the morning. She needs enough to cover the bottom of a shoe box about an inch, she says.
The funny thing was, that she said this in a way that she really expected this to take place, like there wasn't any rational explanation why it wouldn't work out. My mind is racing with… Continue

Trying to stay relevant in an every changing environment is constant challenge.
My site Single Rose
went live in 1995. It was born out of my personal situation as a young, new mom with two small children, with a husband that abandoned us. He announced he was in love with another woman. And here I was with a newborn and a 3 year old. Anyway....searching to connect with other women who could relate to my situation; the only thing online around… Continue

Did you know that most homes in Texas do NOT have basements? This fact is also true in many other parts of the country!
Color me ignorant but I didn't know this until yesterday. I happened to be talking to one of my blogging buddies yesterday, Jeannie - from Musing From Left Field
(aka the exclamation point queen), about her new treadmill purchase. I told her how we keep our treadmill in the basement in front of… Continue

Talk about the universe giving me what I wanted. For the past 6 ½ years I would have done just about anything to have some time at home alone. I don’t even mean time to get out of the house without any kids, I mean at home. Just to be in the house alone. If I was without the kids I was either at work or running errands, I was able to get away a bit, but never be at home alone. Never have peace and quiet at my own house. I wanted it so badly.
When I quit my job in Jan of 2008 I still… Continue

Today, I dropped the boys off for a class on their own for the first time!! We have been going to a toddler gym class together for about a year now. And this semester they are offering a class for 2-3 yr. olds called "Crafty Climbers." The kids have free play time on the gym equipment, organized activity, make a craft and have snack all in 90 minutes. I debated a bit if the boys were ready or if I was for such a big step. I decided it would be good for them on many levels. First of all because… Continue

I haven't been on the internet much during the last couple of months so I am trying to catch up.
I am trying to get adjusted to having a baby again. I tell people that it isn't four kids that is overwelming it...it is having a teenager and an infant at once.
Honestly, I don't know which is the bigger baby. The two month old is supposed to be a baby, but the 13 year old whines, cries, and pouts like a two year old.
Trying to adjust and create order in my… Continue
