Mommy Makeup

5 minutes. That is what I have to get my makeup on and try to resemble a human as best as I can.  That is how long Little Man can be kept busy with a toy before trying to get into drawers.  Gone are the 45 minute sessions of beautification.  In those 5 minutes I…

The Hubs and I are through with week 2 of the 21 Day Fix.  We are loving this program, but come into a slight hitch on the weekends.  We love big breakfasts on the weekend-french toast, pancakes, crepes, you name it, we love it.  Last weekend was tough eating our typical oatmeal or eggs.  I…

Empathy: For When Someone is Having A Hard Moment

I learned so much about empathy when my best friend from childhood passed away.  Too many times did people have sympathetic things to say to me rather than empathetic words.  I felt so much anger towards those being sympathetic; their words weren’t helpful.  They were more hurtful than anything.  I don’t want to make others…
