My own wardrobe malfunction

I have an awesome closet.  It is HUGE and it is full of clothes.  I have blouses in just about every color.  There are so many shoes, I have two shoe racks and I still do not have a place for every pair. My husband only uses a small fraction of the space so I am a lucky girl!

Okay, I was wrong.

As you know, I have been trying to be frugal lately.  I rarely go shopping at the mall these days but, I wanted to go shopping this weekend.  My mom had just recovered from surgery so I thought it would be great to invite her to go with me. I anticipated having a leisurely lunch followed by some shopping.  The day looked bright! (more…)

Frugality is rather boring!

I don’t think I am alone in this but right now I am trying to be good and save money.  I am bringing my lunch every day to work.  I am not running to the mall everyday and my trips to Wal-Mart are less frequent too.  All these things are good and I am happy I am doing them.  My savings are increasing and I think I will survive Christmas this year.  The problem is, spending less is kinda boring and it just makes me think about all the things I want that I shouldn’t or can’t buy.  The following is a list of things I have thought about SIMPLY because I can’t have them right now!

ADD – A Difficult Dilemma

Fair Warning – This is a hard one.

My fantastic, perfect, and delightful boy, Jesse, has ADD.  I have known this for a while but the reality of it hit me full force recently.  We weren’t having huge issues but, we were accustomed to a lot of drama and anxiety in our house recently, I have had to take a step back and take a long look at my family.  It reminds me of the first time I had a sleep-over at a friend’s house.  I thought everyone’s family was pretty much like mine UNTIL, I spent some time at another person’s house.  That is when I then really saw how others families lived. Well, today I didn’t visit another person’s house but I did look at my house with different eyes.  (more…)

This is not optional!

As I go through my day I realize that many people have a different idea of what is required and what is optional when it comes to everyday life.  What I think is a given seems to be debatable to others.  Not to be bossy, but I think the following things are not optional.  Rather, in my world, they are required!

  • Saying, “Thank you.”  when someone holds the door open for you.
  • Wearing a bra if your boobs sag below your belly button.  I am all for natural but boobs at the belly button is too natural.  They must be contained and controlled for your safety and the safety of others
  • Blowing and/or picking your nose in private. A public place is NOT where you do those things. Yuck!! (more…)

I feel good!

I have had a tough time lately.  As a family, we have been extremely busy and a lot of  unexpected stuff has happened.  Having said that, I know there is so much good going on at the same time.  I have found that if I just seek out the good, it very quickly overshadows the bad.  Sooo… I feel good.  Here are some of the reasons I feel this way!
