Multi-Tasking Monday

I am starting my own theme for Mondays as I have so much to share... First, my vlog for Monday Mingle, hosted by Eighty MPH Mom. The questions this week were: Do you have siblings?  Did you want more or less siblings when you were growing up? What was your wedding song? Did you do anything special for Valentine's Day? Tell us something special about your spouse/partner Here are my answers: Then I need to give you my Mamavation update.  I am down another 2.3 lbs this week (which is absolutely amazing considering all the awesome food we had at Blissdom).  I have not been able to walk outdoors because there is 4 feet of snow on the ground but the hubby and I did a lot of unpacking/cleaning so I am assuming that is where I burnt off most of the calories.  I continue to drink ice … [Read more...]

Dr. Phil says I’m a good mom…

and other random things about moi.  First of all, I tuned into the Dr. Phil show today (as I usually do but today had a reason other than I looove Dr. Phil) to catch my friend, Kadi Prescott.  She was a guest, along with her adorable daughter talking about tween issues.  So, anyway there was another little girl on the show asking Dr. Phil to help her talk her mom into allowing her to get a Facebook account.  This little girl is only ten years old and I completely agree with Dr. Phil that she is too young to have a Facebook page. Better yet, Dr. Phil continued on to say that when kids do get a Facebook page their parents should be closely monitoring the page, the messages, etc. because the internet is just not a safe place for a child to be unsupervised.  And the best part- my 13 (and he … [Read more...]

Random Mama Updates

Okay, so Tuesdays seem to be my day for random updating. I am such a creature of routine and habit :-) So, anyway- ya know how when you finally "give in" to God and just do what He's been telling you to do things seem to go a lot smoother? (well, actually they get a little bumpy for a while when the enemy is testing to see if you are serious, but I just ignore him) Things are smooth right now. Not meaning life is grand and I am eating bon bons on a tropical island but that my spirit is at complete peace with the direction I am headed- personally, professionally, spiritually and emotionally (my physical body just has to stay healthy enough to participate). I don't know where God is taking my ship but I am going to enjoy the ride. Just thought I would share that :-)In line with that I … [Read more...]

Random Mama Updates (Advice Welcome)

Boy, I have a lot of random things in my multi-tasking brain to share with you. First off a parenting dilemma (those of you with terrible two year olds- hug them and thank God that they are not terrible twelve year olds). As my regular readers know, Jared recently got a cell phone. This was a huge concession on my part but one I made because LITERALLY he was the only one on his middle school basketball team without one. But, the deal was he has to pay the pay-as-you-go bill with his allowance. Well, he has been slacking and didn't earn enough to pay the bill this month.His phone still works- he just didn't have the money to pay extra for unlimited text.Hubby and I decided to let him sweat this month out and it will probably never be an issue again.Insert grandparents. Well meaning as … [Read more...]
