Not Just Another Time Saving Parenting Post

Any parent can tell you how much work goes into raising children. Having a career and raising a family are both time consuming and take a lot of energy. Any steps that you can take to save time should be considered. I know there are a million sites out there, telling you to do this or that, but the following tips are tried and true for me- and I’m a single mom! Simple tasks like grocery shopping may need to be done multiple times per week- but you can save hours through the grocery delivery services that more and more […]

Self Induced Anxiety

I was diagnosed many, many years ago with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I was so painfully shy, which I have told you all about this before, that I couldn’t even walk into a bank or small store by myself without suffering major anxiety issues and sometimes I would just plain refuse to go anywhere alone, even a walk downtown. Image: graur razvan ionut / FreeDigitalPhotos.net My mother always had a real hard time with this, because I was a teen when this all started happening and I guess, for good reason, she couldn’t understand why I wasn’t able to go into […]

Feeding From Other People’s Energy

Positive Lifestyle How Can I Be Positive

I am taking some time to find me again, it seems I was lost somewhere. Don’t ask where because I don’t know. All that I know is I am off balance again, this happens with a particular relationship but not friendships. I do well with some people and not so well with others. I don’t mean to say these people I don’t do well with are bad people, after all most of the people I know and/or have dated are really decent people. It’s simply a matter of fact that I feed off others energy. I have a more positive […]

Speaking of a Vacation Idea

Not that long ago I had been discussing that I am ready for a vacation, and with Summer just around the corner here in NH I know I long for a few days away. I was checking out the site http://avistaresort.com that has Ocean Front rentals, and wow can you imagine staying in a Myrtle Beach Hotel for even just one night? Oh I can, for sure and if I wasn’t afraid of flying and had the extra finances to spend on a vacation I would certainly look into one of the resorts in Myrtle Beach. Amazing, beautiful scenery or […]

Walking on Egg Shells

I admit I walk on egg shells when it comes to some of my family members and people I shouldn’t even associate with. I have a hard time being assertive I guess the word is. It could also be that I worry about what others will think deep inside my head even though I walk around telling myself I don’t care what others think about me and my life. I am working hard at coming to terms with being a single Mom, I am working hard at knowing I am truly happy with the decisions that have been made to […]

Headed to The Big Apple Circus

My family and I are heading to the Big Apple Circus this week in Boston, MA. My daughter’s father, our daughter, my sons and myself will be taking the couple hour drive to venture into City Hall Plaza to have a look at what this Big Apple Circus is all about. I remember attending the event as a young child with my aunt and uncle I believe, however, I haven’t been ever again. My daughter’s father and my children have not been to The Big Apple Circus ever so this shall be an event to remember. I will go to […]

I Think I Can – A Lesson Learned

The other night AJ chose Walt Disney Dumbo at Bat for his bedtime story and as I was reading it I realized the message behind the book was pretty much “if you think you can, then you can”. I immediately thought about writing a blog post, why? Well because this is a great topic for Happily Blended. I am a firm believer that anyone can accomplish anything if they simply change their attitude and truly believe they can. Something from feeling fat, to being depressed to wanting to gain that big time job or career you feel you deserve, it’s […]

Friends Are Special

I am a huge fan of having friends, just wish I had more local friends to be with. My best friends are those I have met through this blog but I am slowly beginning to meet some new friends both male and female. I am thankful for all the old friends coming back into my life and the new ones I am meeting on a weekly basis! When you are going through changes in your life it’s best to surround yourself with those you love or at least those you like. I ended up surrounding myself with my sister at […]

Stay Strong, Be Happy

I will admit I am a firm believer that you always work as hard as you possibly can on anything in your life before giving up, this holds true for relationships as well. I am a firm believer that you are to work hard to keep a marriage long lasting and happy. This is not to say that a relationship will always be happy, in my opinion a relationship where two people never disagree in a healthy way would be boring. I like to have a little bit of everything in my life and that goes for the perfect relationship […]
