Life Changes
As a woman one of the hardest things in life to do is find a good friend.  It’s really almost easier to find a husband than it is to find a female friend who shares your interests and isn’t too bitchy.  I’ve been blessed for a few years now to have multiple friends, a luxury I did not have growing up.  Sadly, it is a luxury slipping away from me.  I’ve gone back to work so the group of women I have been such a integral part of for the last three years is slipping away from me.  I see them less and less and we are moving on with different directions with our lives.  It is very sad to me and will take some time for me to work through.

 Upcoming Blog Contest- Prize Giveaway
I am currently planning a contest with a real prize!  So if you are interested in participating, you will need to register to make comments on my site.  More details to follow….

An Oxymoron…Well Maybe Just a Moron
I’m good at a lot of things, but GREAT at nothing.  I can do almost anything I try to do well, but I can’t master anything.  One of the things I am pretty good at is saying the wrong thing and not meaning to.  I’m a pretty big nerd.  There isn’t much hiding that.  Well, nerds have a way of saying the wrong thing but not meaning it.  I make a joke with someone who I really like and it comes out sounding mean and nasty.  How did that happen?  Then how do I take it back and explain what I really meant?  Which is why I tend to keep my mouth shut a lot.  Which alternatively gets me in trouble because people think I’m being snobby when I’m really just trying to keep from sticking my foot in my mouth.

Toys and Childhood
Growing up, I was very poor.  I mean my family used food stamps to buy food.  So as a child, I didn’t have many toys.  I got 1 present at Christmas and I was excited to get it. Any other toys or clothes I got was from hand-me-downs. Recently I had a conversation with some friends and they were talking about what toys they played with as children.  Barbies, Cabbage Patch Dolls, Strawberry Shortcake, etc.  I didn’t have any of those.  So as a result, I buy a ridiculous amount of toys for my kids.  However, in all reality, I don’t think toys matter that much.  The reasons which made my childhood good, had nothing to do with toys.  And the reason why part of my childhood was bad, also had nothing to do with the lack of toys.  I’m just saying…keep that in mind and try to plan lots of personal one-on-one time with your kids this holiday.

  1. Know your thoughts are mirrored lady! I moved to South Africa and work from home. If it wasn’t for social networks keeping me in touch, I’d be ‘Billy No Mates’ as us Brits would say. Awesome Santa pics :-)
