With a Blink of an Eye

Whoever thought of the saying "Time Flies," is brilliant! Because that's exactly what it does -- it flies by SO QUICK!  With a blink of an eye -- BOOM, it's six months later since this post. Where does the time go? The weekends definitely seem too short, especially when it's Monday and you're already wishing it were Friday.  There really isn't much time to do everything you planned for during the work week.  Between the cooking, the chores, laundry, homework checks -- the quality time with … [Read more...]

Friends: How Many Can YOU Count On?

"If you're lucky, you'll have a few great friends in your lifetime", my grandmother once told me. I was young at the time and it didn't really set in until after I married and had a child. Life's natural filters sifted out my real friends and soon I found myself with a pretty tight, supportive, and wonderful circle of friends - they're really my sisters that have become the greatest resource I could ever attain. Thinking back to my junior high school years, my friends and I would gossip … [Read more...]

Yes! My Prayers Have Been Answered.

Image: graur codrin / FreeDigitalPhotos.net Finally! My prayers have been answered.  Thank you Lord! I tweeted a few weeks ago that I had to get a fine-needle biopsy because of an abnormal ultrasound (results showed spots of calcium deposits) of my thyroid. I stated I was scared on Twitter and I received so many heartfelt replies and concerns, I was beyond overwhelmed with all the "Twitter love," it was amazing. You guys made me feel so much better. THANK YOU ALL WHO REPLIED!! You know who … [Read more...]

Back to School Shopping With Staples

Did you know that Staples have declared July 14th as the official day for back to school shopping? (I know it's August but life gets in the way of blogging sometimes ;)) Yes, you read that right. While everyone is still enjoying the beach, pool, swimming and the sun, Staples has countless amounts of school supplies on their shelves ready for your child. I was recently invited to a Staples event in New York City to check out the latest in school supplies for back to school.  They have … [Read more...]

When Friends Help

This past weekend, my family and I went away for the weekend for a road trip to Lancaster, PA, Philly and Washington D.C with a fabulous ride - The Volkswagen Routan that was loaned to us (post on that coming up) for review purposes.  It was a great experience (post coming up). While I was away, I knew I wouldn't be blogging or Tweeting so I didn't want my blog to be on a standstill.  So I asked a few of my friends if they wanted to be guest writers here and two of them agreed.  I was so … [Read more...]

My Frown is Now Upside Down!

Thanks to my dear friend, Mariana, whom I've only known for a short time but who is dear to my heart has took (almost) a full day (I can't tell you how appreciative I am of you for doing this) to fix a MAJOR problem on my site for me. Apparently, my site was hacked because I never updated my Wordpress account (don't ever let this happen people!) and my password was the same for 2 years (a huge no-no!).  It also messed up my Feedburner email updates so no one was getting my blog updates.  It … [Read more...]
