What do you get when you combine the following?
5 bottles of wine
3 bottles of champagne
3 batches of chocolate chip cookies
1 box of macaron cookies from Ladurée
2 hours of free time
LOTS of gossip

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays where you can eat way too much, visit with relatives way too much, and need to chill even more. We can't wait to do this and while we are doing it we can't wait to be done with it. Yet, in the end, we learn to be thankful for it all.
CREATION OF THE FIRST TV DINNER.
In 1953, someone at Swanson severely overestimated the amount of turkey Americans would consume that Thanksgiving. With 260 tons of frozen birds to get rid of, a company salesman… Continue

Today a student asked my feelings regarding hospice care. We had a patient that was in the process of being discharged from the ICU to hospice. He asked if that would be a hard decision for me to make. Without hesitation I answered "No."
The greatest gift you can give a person in their last days is dignity. I would much rather be in my home surrounded by family and friends, eating cake and drinking Diet Pepsi than in a hospital setting. A hospital is the last place on earth you can… Continue

So, I have had an organization problem, lately. Some areas are completely organized, everything in it's place, others halfway, and then there are those where I don't even know what is going on. My goal is to take one small part of one thing each day this week and work on it. So send your prayers and good thoughts my way as I start today. Lots of Love, Jami

Yesterday I was waiting in line to use a public restroom for longer than I would have liked to wait.Like everyone else in line, I was contemplating some issues that we ladies have about the ladies room.
1. Has anyone ever given birth while waiting in line?
As a matter of fact, yes, according to one woman waiting in line. A pregnant woman in a line she was once in thought she was wetting herself while waiting in line. It turned out that her bag broke.
2. Why… Continue

Wow! It's been a while since I've posted here. Visited! Browsed around and visited some wonderful places, but haven't posted.
We're looking forward to Thanksgiving here in Savannah. Not the cold we've been having, but the holiday spirit and warmth of the family. We have no family nearby, but our phone line will be busy as soon as California wakes up.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

My son who is 6 years old spills a drink at least once every 2 weeks. I don't know how normal this is, but in my opinion, it's not that big a deal. I mean, of course cleanup is bothersome and the frequency of this is upsetting, but it's not something that I feel calls for disciplinary action. My husband however feels that at this point, it's happening because we have yet to really punish him. It's clearly evident that when he does it, he's completely sorry and sometimes will start crying… Continue

Hey, Mom Bloggers! Check out how cute my Turkey Baby was! The news crew came to the hospital that day to film all the "turkeys" in the nursery. That was FIVE years ago!!! Sniff.
I found some great FREE Thanksgiving resources. I've also got a new article for you... "How to Celebrate Thanksgiving,"
which quite honestly is a more personal note but hopefully one… Continue

Oh, my wonderful Va-j-j, you got me into this mess to begin with.
With an "oooh" and a "ahhh" the damage was done.
Then came the nausea and gas.
Now at 8 months, I can no longer see you, but I know you are there.
Weekly question: to shave or not to shave.
And now that I cannot see you, I have hijacked my husband's electric shaver.
I will not be cutting you up. My death grip on… Continue

Ladies, I have to share...
I am SO excited because my book release party for Organize Now! is tonight at 8pm!!! I have waited SOOO long for this day to get here and now I can hardly believe it. Over 100 people will be there-I haven't had an event this big since my wedding almost 10 years ago! I am a little nervous about having time to thank everyone for coming. I am planning on saying something on the microphone but I would also like to talk to everyone individually. Any suggestions would… Continue

Holiday Organizing Idea
Hello! Here are some of my favorite organzing tips and ideas for Holiday Cards:
Organize Your Addresses
. I keep a running template of address labels just for holiday cards. That way I only have to update a few-people that have moved or new friends to add to my list- each year.
Add something unique in your card
. Last year I printed a label that said "This Year We Would Like to Thank You For..." and added something that we… Continue
