Red, White and Blue Friday #6 - Military Blogs Will Soon Be History, For Some

Red, White and Blue Fridays was created as a way of showing my support to our soldiers by spreading the word on ways we (bloggers, like you and me) can say, "Thank you!" Regardless of the fact that you are a democrat, republican, liberal, independent, conservative, left wing, right wing, or a giant purple people-eater - WHATEVER - wouldn't it be nice if we could ALL just...you know...come together and NOT be afraid to flaunt our red, white and blue....yeah...I mean, that's what the blogosphere is for...YES? This week, I'd like to talk about military blogs - did you know that there's a ban going on? There's an interesting article on the Wired Blog Network reporting how the Air Force blocks access to many blogs. Basically, their argument is that blogs aren't authorized forms of media and shouldn't be read at work. Uh-huh. Not being a military expert, or anything,... Read more →

Don't hate me because I'm dellusional!

I know - keep dreamin' - but, it's my blog and...sometimes...totally haggard-looking, regular-type moms (like me) just want to have fun, too. Still, I can't help but feel at least slightly embarrassed when I meet someone new and they innocently ask: "So, what DO you do, again?" Then, all of a sudden, being a mommy blogger doesn't seem all that beautiful, anymore. Mini-me (she's 6) had a friend come over after school, yesterday and - although, I had heard SO much about her, already - it was the first chance I got to meet Cutie-pie and the first time Mini-me has had anyone over for a play date, since the start of school. "This time, it's MY turn at the Pway-station!" Actually, Cutie-pie and Mini-me decided that dressing up and lip-syncing to Hannah Montana would be way funner! "The boys are hogging it, anyway." The Boy had a couple of... Read more →

Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Toothless in New Jersey!

Lord love a duck; Mini-me has lost her 1st baby tooth! [sniff] The toof fairy weft me ten bucks! Me: Wow! I fink this one's loose, too! Me: Well, that one will be worth a dollar. [beat] How much for my two fwont teef!?!? Me: Well, the tooth fairy has always left a dollar for each tooth, after your first one falls out; just ask your sisters and brother and they'll tell you. The Boy: Yeah, but I know where she can get a WHOLE lot more for it! Me: [blank stare] The Boy: Just call Papa, he's good for at least $5! Join us here, again next week for another edition of The Grandfather Connection - when our children are taught to scalp pool club vouchers and smuggle illegal lawn ornaments into a retirement community.

Body Image: A Conversation with Me, Myself and My OTHER Half.

The key message for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2008 – “Be comfortable in your genes. Wear jeans that fit the TRUE you." And it starts today! This year, my daughters and I have made a commitment to do just that - hosting the I Am Beautiful blog Tour with Woody Winfree on Valentine's Day started us off on some pretty cool dialog - and with BlogHer launching the A Letter to my Body initiative, I can't help but get fired-up about discussing body image. You see, we should ALL love our bodies! [feels tap on shoulder] "Uh, self? Can we talk?" So, as you can see, I am very excited about... "Uh, excuse me, self. We need to talk!" Oh, damn it - please, excuse me for just a moment - okay, ya' got one minute and then you, I mean, I'm outta here! "Tsk, tsk....now, now. Remember your... Read more →

Red, White and Blue Fridays #5 - Thankful for Freedom Campaign

I've pledged to celebrate Red, White and Blue Fridays and showing my support by spreading the word on ways we (bloggers, like you and me) can say, "Thank you!" Regardless of the fact that you are a democrat, republican, liberal, independent, conservative, left wing, right wing, or a giant purple people-eater - WHATEVER - wouldn't it be nice if we could ALL just...you know...come together and NOT be afraid to flaunt our red, white and blue....yeah...I mean, that's what the blogosphere is for...YES? Today, I'd like to tell you a little about a new campaign and this cool t-shirt I found: Thankful for Freedom is a new campaign launched February 18, 2008 by two seniors at The University of Arizona, Nick Stewart and Ryan Brown, as well as a senior from Oregon State University, Brock Amelle. And they're mission is pretty, too: To raise $5 million for our troops by... Read more →

30 Tiny Moments - Day 2: Times when I just can't see the Doofus, for the trees.

There was a time - not so long ago, really - when I enjoyed sleep (I mean, actually slept) and it took every bit of strength - whatever I had left from the day before - just to get up in the morning. I mean, just the thought of having to stand, erect, was enough to make me want to jump right back into bed and pull the covers over my head. Sounds good, yes? Yet, one of the few things that helped see me through was that, one day - once all of my children were in school and I was home alone - perhaps, I would miss all the chaos . Surprisingly enough, I don't! [see picture above] He follows me, everywhere, even after being scolded for the 100th time not to and - whenever I do get the chance to sit - he settles down close enough... Read more →
