Making Your Home Sing Monday: Juggling Act

I can SOOOO relate to this post at Moms The Word today! I won’t admit how many times I’ve discovered a load of laundry in my washer – 2 or even 3 days after it’s been washed. UGH! It’s easy to forget that I started the load – my washer & dryer are in our dungeon basement, and I only go there to DO laundry. I need to find a way to post a reminder

Happy Mother’s Day! A Tribute to the Mothers I Love!

Being a mother, I have a new appreciation for Mother’s Day. And for my own mother. So when writing a post about Mothers & Mother’s Day, I have to start with my mom. After all, she IS the woman who gave me life. =) She & I have had a pretty good, although not always smooth, relationship – We have our moments of disagreement.

National Honesty Day

Seriously. It’s a real holiday. Should I be concerned that it’s at the opposite end of the month that begins with April Fool’s Day??? Anyhew, I decided to just put it all out here. Well, not ALL of it, but a lot of it. Honestly. Things about me you never knew. And probably don’t WANT to know – Hey, I’m just being honest! READY??? 1. I have a dead-skin picking fetish. Sunburn. Dandruff. Whatever. Compelled
