Wellness Wednesday: Nooming Right Along

Yesterday, I was scanning Facebook and I ran across Noom….again.  I’ve seen it about a dozen times on my feed.  I guess their paid ad worked because I finally clicked on it, opened it up, and decided to give it a try. I’m on day 2 and so far, so good.  Being a Weight WatcherContinue reading “Wellness Wednesday: Nooming Right Along”

Solution Sunday: You’re Grounded Chore Chart

In the words of my Grammy, “I don’t want to sound like I’m airing my dirty laundry,” but we’ve been having some behavior issues around here and problems not minding the first time, etc., etc., etc…. And a while back I saw a few Pinterest posts that had some ideas for grounding, including a “Congratulations,Continue reading “Solution Sunday: You’re Grounded Chore Chart”

Mommy Review Monday: Faster Than Normal- how to use your ADHD super powers

I’ve never been diagnosed as ADHD, however, I’m pretty sure I’ve got it.  For example, this is the third time I’ve started and stopped writing this blog and I’m only two sentences in. Or another example:  I’m having a serious conversation about school and discipline with a friend about grounding from TV. I go fromContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Faster Than Normal- how to use your ADHD super powers”

Photo Friday: Mr. Chairman, My Dad

My dad doesn’t often read this. And it’s a good thing because he’s a very humble man and may not approve of me bragging on him so much. However, I’m going to brag about him anyway. Last night he was “inaugurated” as the Chairman (equivalent of President) of the Mason Contractors of America (MCAA). He’sContinue reading “Photo Friday: Mr. Chairman, My Dad”

Sweet Saturday: In the Kitchen

Today was a great day with the girls. They love to “pay kitten” (aka Play Kitchen). They’re very creative and I only had to retrieve one chewed up plastic French fry from Kate’s mouth. I call that a success. People often ask if they get along well. And I always answer with “Eh.” Their personalitiesContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: In the Kitchen”

(Not so) Tall Tale Tuesday: What Makes a Great Mom

Today’s prompt for (Not so) Tall Tale Tuesday is: Write about the woman who has had the greatest impact on your life. This didn’t take more than a few seconds for me to know exactly who I’d write about- my Mom. We’d both freely admit that we don’t always agree about everything- far from it.Continue reading “(Not so) Tall Tale Tuesday: What Makes a Great Mom”

Thursday’s Thoughts:  Like riding a bike

From my Five-Minute Journal, today’s quote was from Albert Einstein: Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.  Although this morning was the first time I’d heard this quote, I think it’s been something that I’ve always subconsciously tried to use in my life when things are a challenge. Continue reading “Thursday’s Thoughts:  Like riding a bike”

Today, one of the things I aim to accomplish is to drink enough water. I live in a state of dehydration- most days running on coffee alone. Yes, I realize that this is terrible. So…I’m working on it.
