Pregnancy opens the floodgate of comments

Good Morning All, I don’t consider myself very sensitive, but I have noticed that during both of my pregnancies people feel very comfortable saying just about anything.  I wasn’t going to post about this until yesterday when I was talking to two male coworkers about how stunned they were at the comments their wives received […]

Compassion and Compromise

I read an interesting blog this weekend about the relationship between a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law.  The more I thought about the article the more I feel that it relates to all relationships and interactions.  Many conversations and news stories today are me, me, me.  I’m sure this isn’t news to anyone or new to society.  […]

Last night was my first time to purchase something on ebay.  I know, I know…I am late to the party.  I have perused it every now and then, but never had a huge desire to bid on anything.  That is until now.  As I have mentioned baby #2 is on the way and along with […]

Sugared fruit, anyone?

It is definitely Winter.  We are not experiencing super cold weather this week, but it is dreary.  I was flipping through a Better Homes & Garden magazine earlier this week as I impatiently waited to take my glucose test and ran across this beautiful fruit arrangement. This arrangement can serve multiple purposes; it can add […]

Planning for Visitors

Upon the arrival of a new baby you are going to have family and friends lined up to see you and that precious baby.  It might be a good idea to put together a plan for visitors and share that plan with everyone so you can enjoy your new baby and all your visitors.  And […]
