Just One Inspirational Sign on my Bathroom Wall

Just one inspirational sign can change your life far beyond measure. Brandy Ellen shares her story of how one sign made her life so much happier.

Sitting there working in an office for a year, at first it was exhilarating. I was in charge of tasks, I was interacting with people.  I worked for local staffing agency downtown as an administrative assistant in house. This means I wasn’t one of their temporary in the field workers, I was right there in the office helping with the hiring process – well doing the office side of that, where the recruiters did the interviewing and recruiting side. The year there proved to be a great learning experience, while I utilized most of the skills I had used in […]

Mid Night Wakings, History Repeating, No Sleep

Mid Night Wakings, History Repeating, No Sleep

It seems that history enjoys repeating itself, if you look back upon our American history you can see some subjects coming back. Situations seem to reappear in different ways all through history. It’s just how it is. That is the same when it comes to parenthood, always something repeating itself yet with a different child or in a different form. Mid Night Waking’s For the first 4 years or so of my middle child’s life I had very minimal sleep, it made me miserable. I was quick to be angered and easily frustrated. Breaking down into tears was a common […]

A Boardwalk Stroll and Fireworks at Hampton Beach, NH

Hampton Beach NH Visit

Every other weekend the man and I head out on a random road trip. We don’t always have a destination in mind, but one time months back my man had a destination in mind. He was going to test my dang anxiety and see about playing Bingo near the seacoast. He had told me about this Bingo option in the past but I was reluctant to agree, so he just brought me knowing that my anxiety may take over and I wouldn’t go in. That’s exactly what happened and I felt horrible, but being the man he is, having compassion […]

Candy in the Morning?! What the What …

There's never a dull moment in this Happily Blended household of a teen daughter and two young boys. Read this story of one fine Saturday morning ...

The joys of being a work from home mother means that the kids are sometimes left to fend for themselves, after all they aren’t toddlers anymore. One would think a 7, 9 and 13 year old could make good decisions for the few hours I need to work in the morning. That’s where I was wrong. You see, I only ask for a couple of hours each morning during weekends and Summer break, after that I leave the work behind and put on the Mom Duty hat. It usually works well for us, as that’s what our life has been […]

We Can All Thrive to Be Better

We Can All Thrive to be better today for others and ourself

We all carry baggage, a past that haunts us, decisions we made that continue to play out as part of our present day. There’s no explanation for the reasons we do what we do, but what can be said is that regardless of the past baggage, everyone has a chance to turn a new leaf. You see, I firmly believe in learning from mistakes. I have made many mistakes, just like you, it’s those mistakes that helped mold me into who I am today. I’ve let people down, I’ve reacted out of emotions and I have done many things that […]

When Should I Go To the Emergency Department?

When Should I Go To the Emergency Department

When Should I Go To the Emergency Department? As a busy Mom of three that works from home, there are often times where I will debate heading to the emergency department because time simply is precious to me. One would argue that my health is what matters most as a means to have more time on this Earth, but the reality is, with the day to day hustle and bustle of motherhood and client work, I tend to put myself last on that priority list. Most recently I had a situation where I wasn`t sure if I should go to […]
