Pulling Up Weeds

I live in California where water is at a premium so when I decided to landscape our front yard a few years ago, I designed it with about forty percent rock, and sixty percent grass.  I was really happy with how it turned out.  I’ve since learned that the landscaper I hired did not put […]

Fresh Season, Fresh Habits

Did you know that 40% of our daily activities are simply habits? We’re on autopilot almost half of our time! So the obvious question is, “Do I have good habits or bad habits?” Now honestly most of us have a combination of both so don’t start beating yourself up over your bad habits so quickly. […]

Information Overload!

I wholeheartedly believe in the Law of Attraction.  What you focus on increases.  Also, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.  But holy cannoli, I think my Lenten promise to get out of my comfort zone and break free of my limiting beliefs has opened a floodgate!  Teachers that I’ve admired and observed […]

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 4

Oh yeah, that menu planning thing again… Tonight is our monthly dinner with my bestie and it happens to be her birthday as well. The goddess wants Spaghetti Factory so the goddess shall have Spaghetti Factory.  I ain’t complainin’.  Tomorrow, we’re traveling up north a couple hours because momma wants a Christmas Tree with a […]

Merry Pamper Month!

AAAAAGGGHHHHH! A new month starts tomorrow and I still suck at menu planning, my Flylady habit for November.  If you all will humor me, I’m going to try to stick with this one for a while longer and continue to post about it here for accountability’s sake. But tomorrow a new habit starts and it’s […]

I Currently Own Two Pair of Pants….My Experience With the Konmari Method of Decluttering

My headline is mildly misleading.  I have two and a half pair of pants, two that I don’t hate and one that I do hate but I’ve dragged out of the “goodwill pile” three times now in desperation. See the Konmari Method basically works like this: category by category, you pull out all items in […]

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 3

Holy Yes, it’s Friday! It’s been another week that I’ve basically sucked at menu planning.  Wait, no, I’m awesome at menu planning; it’s the shopping and execution that’s been giving me trouble.  So here’s how this week went down:  Sunday I made chili.  It was awesome.  Go me!  I peaked early.  Monday, I didn’t feel […]

A Day in the Life of a Working Mom

Time Management Basics First, let me say that I don’t really like the title “working mom” because I’m hard pressed to think of a mom who doesn’t work.  But work-away-from-home-mom is too much of a mouthful, so I’ll stick with the standard.  I’ve already shared with you the magic that is Flylady; I couldn’t keep […]

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 2

So my last post was the instructions for the soup I ended up making Monday night.  Tuesday, I made the pork chops. Wednesday I did the French dips, which nobody ate because nobody was home, which is usually when I give up on menu planning.  Last night, Thursday, no one was hungry at dinnertime so […]
