Acceptance Of Illness by Clergy

Often Not

In the media and in personal circles I hear of medical practitioners, educators and community members who dismiss or deny the existence of mental illness, but a recent Baylor University study determined that one of the most dismissive of all professions is...

Getting on with my life!

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

Stress Free Strategy-Week 10

Day 27 :: Some days

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

so fresh and so clean

As soon as I opened the door, my nose was assaulted by the smell. The antiseptic smell. My ears heard the buzzing, drilling, and spraying. I could feel my heart begin to race...

When they called my name I literally cringed and tried to disappear, but I acted like a grown up and got up. Oh how I didn't want to... Once in the chair, I could feel the water sprinkles hit my cheek, my hands were clenched, my knuckles white, and I could hear my heart pounding in my ears. I was on the verge… Continue

Warning About Hand Sanitizer Poisoning in Children!

A few days ago I received an alarming e-mail from a friend about another mom’s little daughter who got very sick and was hospitalized after ingesting hand sanitizer. This is not the first time I have heard about this, and I want to urge everyone, parents and grandparents, to be very careful with these products or not to used them anymore at all!

This little girl, four years old, was very lethargic and incoherent in school, and when they got her to the hospital, she had an alcohol… Continue

Leave Our Dora Alone!

It was with utter shock that I read that Dora is going to get a makeover this fall. What? Surprised are you? So was I. I read with disgust what that change would entail. Mattel and Nickelodeon have announced that they allow “Dora to Grow Up” this fall. Now our beloved adventure girl will become a fashionista. It… Continue

Stress Free Strategy # 9

Plan ahead

If it's predictable -- and many things are -- plan for it.

Take care of "to-dos" before they turn into crises, emergencies or late fees.

Some Examples:

Don’t let the gas tank get below a quarter tank.

In the event of a rushed morning before work, or worse yet, a real emergency, you won't have to make another stop; and you'll…

The Old Hag With the Babe

I felt young when I had my first baby. I was in my late-twenties but had always imagined I wouldn't get started until I was in my thirties. You see, I just had too much to do and didn't need a baby slowing me down. Turns out, sometimes they don't slow you down but speed you up. Regardless, as time passed and the number of babies increased, so did the number of candles on my birthday cake. Last week I blew out 38 of the damn things.

Generally I'm not bothered by aging. We all… Continue

Living Gluten Free

I was delighted to read Media Post's Marketing Daily article on Friday about the burgeoning gluten free market (now estimated at $1.56 Billion). After being diagnosed with Celiac disease in 2002, I immediately removed gluten from my diet, only to realize how expensive and hard-to- find gluten free products were. Over the past 7 years, as the article mentions and my experience confirms, I have gotten used to rice and quinoa pastas, but they generally don't taste nearly as good as I remember the… Continue

I moved to Aspen and got a job working at Photographer’s Aspen, a small photographer’s cooperative for leading editorial assignment shooters. I helped to market their images for stock. Snuggled in the midst of an Aspen Grove, our old ranch style building also housed the Tenth Mountain Hut Division offices. I had radically changed my life from living in the chaos of New York City to living in one of the healthiest towns in America. I rode my bike to work and religiously hiked up the Ute Trail,… Continue

5 Reasons Why I Love Living With My MIL

Since I have my MIL (mother-in-law) here I decided to dedicate this one in her honor. Here is my next dose of the Mommy Niri Friday 5 series.

I love living with my mother-in-law (MIL) because:

Passing On My Prejudices

I have heard it said several times about ensuring that when we introduce food to babies to keep our personal biases out of the radar. This is so that we do not feed kids our prejudices, literally. Did I listen to that bit of smart advice? No, of course not. Was it because I thought I knew better? No. The truth was I did not have the courage (or stomach) to do it. Like I don’t eat (or like) tomatoes so my kids have not eaten it (does ketchup count?). Don’t start to pity their cuisine… Continue
