Well, I actually never left, I just took a pause. Here’s what’s been going on, friends. Know that I hope to be back on the posting job to give you new info and musings. During our last episode, I was blogging along and trying to get healthy (aka getting less “fluffy” and improving my physical […]
Yes, Even You Can Homeschool!

Kid’s Glasses Insanity
Both my husband and I have worn eyeglasses since we were children. As a result, Aaron had virtually no chance of escaping his wearing glasses too. Our little man has worn his specs for a couple of years now. He’s been complaining that things aren’t as clear, so it was off to get an exam […]
Is Your Protein Shake or Bar Safe?
As cynical as I was in my former career, I am generally a glass is half-full type of gal. I don’t automatically assume that either people or companies will cut so many corners that harm could result.

All About the Olive Oil
It’s all about the oil, olive oil, that is! Anyone who’s familiar with celebrity chef Rachel Ray recalls her extensive use of EVOO. For the uninitiated, that means “extra virgin olive oil.” Uhhh, virgin? Yes, Virginia (oh look, I think I made an unintentional pun) — meaning that it’s not been processed. An interesting use […]
Dinner for Busy Nights
Not ready for the commitment of meal kits? Have a small-ish family or are you or you and your significant other? Not to worry. I personally think that Dinner Mixers are a great solution for getting your feet wet with organizing your dinner prep for the week. They’re also great to have on hand […]
Great Memoirs about Women and Alcohol Abuse
I’m a sucker for a great true story – particularly about women who have had an issue with alcohol abuse. They are often raw, real and hilarious. I want to hug these women and profusely thank them for being brave enough to tell everyone about it. You are my heroes for being so vulnerable and […]
