Things I Learned From Motherhood

November 28, 2012

I made it. All my children are young adults and they survived my mothering skills. Well, just about. When you are a very young parent, (I had my first child when I was 22! TWENTY-TWO! I was a BABY!) a lot of parenting is trial and error. I can’t say I grew up knowing how […]

Anybody remember that old folk song? I grew up with folk songs. While my peers were rocking to Jimi Hendrix or Donny Osmond, I was listening to Elizabeth Cotten, Burl Ives, Pete Seeger, and James Taylor. I later found out that Elizabeth Cotten lived in Syracuse in her later years — just a hop, skip, […]

The reason I haven’t been around is because (a) I’ve been busy, and (b) I’ve been sick with a nasty cold. The husband works in public service (post office and in a grocery store) so he is exposed to all sorts of sick people. We haven’t been sick like this in years. My poor husband […]

I saw Karen’s post 12 Things I’ve Done That You Probably Haven’t and was intrigued by her answers. Yep, I haven’t done those things (except maybe I’ve read as many books or more in my lifetime). Her post got me thinking, so I thought I’d join in and have a little fun. I’d be really […]

It’s another Monday! How do they come around so quickly every week? Questions: 1. The thing that scares me the most is __________? Ugh, I can’t think about all those things! It’ll ruin my day. šŸ™ I’m kinda high strung and if I meditate on how the politicians are ruining our economy and out country, […]

I’m Back!

It’s good to be back home, although I say that with mixed feelings. We spent a week in the Adirondack Mountains and IT WAS INCREDIBLE. If I could buy property up there, I SO would. I have never met anyone who visited the Adirondacks and didn’t gush and gush about how wonderful it is there. […]

What a whirlwind of weeks. Just TOO MUCH to do lately, and it’s been so hot that I haven’t felt like doing anything. Today, the humidity is back down to “people level” (as opposed to “fish level” where we’re literally swimming through the atmosphere) and the temperature is down to 85 degrees (wahoo, yippee). I […]

After I posted my article about the the TracFone cell phone plan, I was rather surprised at all the enthusiastic responses! It makes me wonder if the no contract phones are putting a dent in […]

It’s with incredible joy that I read this news report about another up and coming movie from the Sherwood Films dudes. If you have never seen “Facing the Giants” or “Fireproof,” GO SEE THEM. Good, good movies. The same folks are making a new movie, “Courageous.” My kids have been talking about it for a […]
