Communicating is an art. It is a learned skill. There are many ways to communicate, however for the purpose of this discussion we are going to focus on the verbal form of communicating.
Verbal communication is generally defined as the sharing of ideas, thoughts, and opinions through the process of speaking and listening. Communication is the glue that “connects” two people.
The art of communicating takes place when a thought, idea, or opinion is put forth toward another… Continue

“I relaunch”, as in I was out of work for a period of time and now would like, or need, to go back to work. MyWorkButterfly.com had the great pleasure of being a media sponsor for the recent iRelaunch conference held this past week at Seton Hall University. I learned much that day from the founders of iRelaunch, Carol and Vivian, and from the corporate participants: Morgan Stanley, Accenture and Goldman Sachs representatives, all of whom embrace many of you who are return-to-work moms. Carol… Continue

I found this wonderful site, GNC Web Creations
, that has helped me so much with my website.
You see, I was one of those that thought, If I make it they will come. I was sorely mistaken.
I didn't have a clue what I was doing, nor did I have any money for specialized training. Just as I was becoming desperate, I ran across… Continue

Many times I find myself wondering... Why do other women seem to love their husbands more than I love mine?
I read blogs on a daily basis and many mommy bloggers out there are going on and on about how wonderful their husbands are and how much they love them. And it makes me question our relationship.
I love my husband. And I know that he loves me. So how can we be more like that?
I've come up with a few theories that I have been putting to the test. Some of… Continue

One great writer once told me that some people have it, some people don’t.
And then you have Larry Bird, one monstrous, awkward cement mixer in the middle of the basketball court. He should be just standing there and get paid, you know what I mean? He’s an OBSTACLE not a basketball player! And yet, he’s one of the most amazing players known to man. Apart from that lithe speed-of-light Jordan guy. Phew!!
Larry Bird who moves at a speed so slow, I could beat him to the net.… Continue

So today was the big day. When we woke up, I traipsed into the kitchen to look at the clock, and it was 8:58 a.m. Landon is in preschool from 9 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. Holy lateness!! Since we got back from Germany, L has been up at 7 a.m. every day, so I didn’t think we needed an alarm clock! So I panicked for a second and then just pulled myself together. Yes, it was his first day, but I wasn’t going to ruin it by rushing him. So I got him dressed and I gave him his Schultüte, a paper cone… Continue

One of the first things my husband and I always thought of when we had the "baby talk" was how expensive babies are. How many things they need, how much it all cost, and how little money we have to buy all these things. We thought we couldn't "afford" a baby.
Wrong. Besides the basic necessities - clothes, food, car seat, diapers- babies really don't need a whole lot. The baby industry is huge, and many things are completely unnecessary. Having a baby certainly doesn't have the bank,… Continue

New automobile emissions standards
are on the right track. President Obama
is serious when it comes to fighting our global warming dilemma, creating new eco-related jobs and reducing our ongoing dependence on foreign oil. By 2016, all auto makers are required to make new cars and trucks get 30 percent better mileage
. It will be a gradual phasing in process with the 2011 new automobile models. Initially, it will cost the consumers a bit more per vehicle, but these “new… Continue

Stuff. Possessions. Things
. We all have way too much of it. Especially if you have children or if you are one to hold onto things for sentimental reasons. (You know who you are!) There may be a psychological underlying reason why you hold onto your stuff, but no matter what the reason is, there are ways to help reduce and reuse it.
Here are some ideas to reduce and reuse:
Birthday party favors
. When my girls come home from birthday parties, the flood… Continue

How do I stop myself from comparing to all the other, “better,” unschoolers? Here we are, all letting our kids have the individuality the school system tries to stamp out of them, but yet, I can’t help but feel (and some of the online–not real life–community seems to foster) this sense of a Set of Rules for How to Unschool that we all compare ourselves to (and online, get sometimes reamed for not measuring up to) and come up feeling short. How… Continue

Environmentally friendly gifts are all the rage these days, but with the economy still dipping, you can still show Mom how thankful you are. Here are a few ideas that will let Mom know you not only adore her, but Mother Earth as well.
First and foremost, keep in mind what Mom’s hobbies are. Does she like to curl up with a good book? Purchasing books from a second-hand book store is not only a financially great idea, but applies the reusing thought process. Like Netflix’s movie rental… Continue
