It's only three days into the new week and already I've burnt up 7! Long story short. Helped DD1 with kids at 5 am Sunday as the 2 year old decided to reject the bag of mini peppers he ate when she wasn't looking! It was her first time wi... Read more

About 20 years ago, trying to get the man to eat better, I started using threats like: If your toes fall off I'm not helping you walk. If your stroke out, I'm not wiping your drool. If your kidneys go you'd better find someone else to driv... Read more

Monday, May 09, 2016      7 comments

I am not going to take classes or yoga or whatever the heck else there is out there to learn calmness. I tend to give others the advice I should follow myself. FIFI sent me a message about my reaction to my stress not helping me. She was right a... Read more
