All About Me

I have a friend who posted on her blog the other day about some hurtful things were said to her regarding her children.  It got me thinking, and I wanted to get your thoughts as well.   I’ve heard some pretty ignorant remarks concerning my son and his autism.  Most are annoying:  “Wow, I didn’t know Buddy Boy was actually SMART…kids who have autism can be smart?”, “Buddy Boy is so LOUD”, “Thank heavens you got such an angelic daughter […]

A good, sweet friend of mine has started a new blog, with a fantastic theme. Her blog is called “30 and Loving It!” She chose to start it because she is turning 30 this year, and has chosen to turn this milestone into a positive one by highlighting some great things about being 30 (or older)!   She’s just begun to highlight some fantastic 30-somethings, and it’s so fun! Head on over and take a look at her post all […]

So, as you may or may not know, I’ve been working very hard at night after the kids are in bed to pay down my debt.  It’s been slow and steady, and I’ve begun seeing some real progress.  It’s relaxing, really, to know that my efforts are paying off, and that helps me sleep better at night.   Imagine with me, if you will, the horror:     I left my computer on yesterday afternoon and went to start dinner.  […]

Forgive me for getting a little “religious” on you today, but oh me oh my, I had an epiphany last night.   It wasn’t actually last night.  It was this morning.  Between the lovely hours of 1:00 and 4:00 am.     But then, I’ve never been very good with timing.   Okay, so it all started last night.  I put the kids to bed, helped them say their prayers, and then hopped into the sack myself.  I said my […]

My Middle of the Night Epiphany

Wow, I can’t believe the 30 days are already over!  I think I’ve discovered a new way to make time fly even faster than usual… So, to finish off, I get to share my dreams for the future.  What could be better?  Here goes: – I want to change the lives of children around the world….and I want to do it on a personal level.  I want to provide clothing, food, health care, and school supplies to children.  I want […]

All About Me in 30 Days: A Dream for the ...

Wow…this is a great one, and I’m excited to share. The first thing I want to accomplish in the next year is gonna shock you.  I wanna lose 20 lbs. Never heard that one before, did ya?:-)  This time, it is for different reasons than in the past.  Before I wanted to be skinny and cute.  Now, I just want to be healthy.  And so, in all honesty, if I don’t lose any weight, but I get in better shape […]

All About Me in 30 Days: Hopes, Dreams, Plans for ...

Well, there’s my purse…laying there in all it’s glory. I have to admit, I’m not a typical woman in some ways (although that’s probably not news…and who among us IS typical in all ways?  I’d guess none of us.)  I don’t have a lot of shoes, and I don’t really care about purses.  I own two pairs of sandals, one casual and one “churchy”, and I own one pair of sneakers and one pair of boots.  My purse situation is […]
