So do you wear your ideology on your sleeve? Should you?

So, are you the type of person that lets everyone know where you stand in regards to things that mean the most to you? That could be religion, politics, your lifestyle, your commitment to veganism or helping animals. Many of us have at least one thing that we feel strongly about and once we get…

So, when is it time to let go? When it comes to pets, the answer is all too difficult…

So, ML's sister is constantly taking her dogs to the vet for surgeries, or at least one of them is ill and older and needs more care. I made the comment to ML that at some point, it might be more prudent to put the dog down. I know that sounds harsh or uncaring. But…

So, the old adage is true! Attitude is EVERYTHING…

So, I have this super sweet and kind friend who works at my neighborhood grocery store. She is the customer service manager and has worked there for the 14 years it has been open. She was a stay at home mom/seamstress until both of her sons finished high school and started work at this store…

So, I have decided to define “clean” and “fit” for myself…

So, I am a size 12/14 and I am not super tall. Some would call me chubby, some say I look fab as I am and what others say, I don't really care at this point because I eat better and healthier than I know. I have a goal of losing 20 percent of my…

So, I had a mouse in our house and now I am all Martha Stewart or something…

So, we had our dreaded yearly mouse. And I got really sick around the same time with asthma and a virus. So I went on this cleaning mission. Or journey or better yet quest. I can't tell you how completely obsessed I have been about cleaning starting around President's Day. So almost a month, I…

So, Changing it up today-5 things to consider when parenting…

Tell Don’t Ask I think one of the things that bugs me the most about parents is that they ask the opinion of their children whom are not even in 1st grade. Sometimes the kids haven’t even been out of diapers for long. So my advice as a child education specialist for over 15 years,…

So, I am not a “woe is me” kind of girl, but my family really sucks… (warning this is long)

So, I don't have a great family. I don't really talk about it a lot. My mom has helped me a lot over the last 8-10 years as I have been a single mom and have had contract jobs and have needed financial help from time to time. But I have always been the kid…

So being on a higher spiritual/emotional/intellectual plane has its cons…

So, I am not saying I am Oprah or Iyanla or Dalai Lama. I am just a thinker. A deep thinker. Even when I was at my most "ratchet" in my younger years, I always felt intensely. I am super emotional and I care more than most. I have a penchant for trying to help…

So, everyone wants to be loaded or known or both…

So, everyone wants to be rich, but don't riches come with work most of the time? I mean there are the Trump's, the Rockefeller's, the Carnegie's. But someone, somewhere in those families sacrificed a hell of a lot. They either were involved in major illegal activities, risked life and limb to provide for their families…

So, I have this restless desire to get EVERYTHING organized, stat!

So, I am a self-proclaimed organized person. But I haven't truly been that organized over the last few years. If I had, my house wouldn't have gotten so allergy ridden. I would have not accumulated as much crap as I have and I would be in better financial shape. But I am not perfect, so…
