You at the Center

I am too busy. In general. I am always telling people, "I am too busy!" but then, here I sit, on the computer with Facebook going on endlessly in front of me. I realize it's happening, I know that I should get up and do something about it, but I just don't, I am too overwhelmed! So much I should be, could be, want to be, doing that I can't figure out where to start... so I don't.  This describes me, and I wish it didn't. I am working on it though, and it is improving so much, what helped … [Read more...]

Stocking an emergency preparedness pantry #WalmartGrocery #PartyToGo

emergency preparedness food

I've been thinking a lot about emergency preparedness. We've been researching it, talking to friends about it, and trying to plan for an emergency preparedness pantry of our own. I see other people who are in situations they never thought they would be in; stuck in their house for days, trapped inside because of weather, sick for a long period and can't get out to get things for their family, etc. I mean, the truth is that you never know what is going to happen to you, or your loved ones, or … [Read more...]

Mr Peabody and Sherman time travel party

Mr. Peabody and Sherman crafts

I've said it at least twice before, we loved the movie Mr Peabody and Sherman. The boys wanted to have a movie night with some friends, and who am I to say no? So, we put together a Mr Peabody and Sherman time travel party as part of my awesome gig with the Fox Home Entertainment Insiders. We were chosen to do the Italian Renaissance time period, which was pretty exciting for me! FHE Insiders sent over some crafts for us to do that would be a fun representation of the time period. I … [Read more...]

I found the perfect phone for young kids

Kyocera Brigadier

As you may, or may not know, we have 2 young sons (8 and 10) and we've been looking for a phone for them... well, not really for them, more for the house. There has been a huge shift since we were kids, no one has a house phone anymore, how are kids supposed to call each other to talk about school, and games, and going outside to play together? I know you don't think they are calling my phone to talk to my kids, that's what's not about to happen. I mean, I let my kids use my phone, but they … [Read more...]

You at the Center

You at the Center

My whole life has revolved around doing things for others, ever since I remember. I never think of myself, only others, and I hate that as much as I love it. I love helping others, but I also wish that I could feel ok about helping myself.  I was offered a chance to join a 100-day course called You At The Center and after thinking about it, I decided that it was worth a shot. If nothing else, maybe I will learn to put myself first on some level, no matter how small.  YOU at the … [Read more...]
