Totally Self Disciplined and Focused and Dare I Say Crazy?

I would love to know who I should thank in my family for my self disciplined personality and driven to succeed attitude? Maybe that is all me. Maybe I am a self taught awesome work from home woman, but I think some has to be credited to my parents as well as grandparents and aunt for pushing me to be who I can be. All I can be. I was the first born and a lot of responsibility was placed on my shoulders. My Dad is pretty laid back but always used to refer to me as the responsible child. […]

Things That Irk Me About My Cell Carrier #HelloBetter

I currently have a not to be named cell phone carrier that has decent service, although where I reside it is always in roaming due to lack of towers and having a not as popular cell phone carrier for the area.  The plan is reasonable and I enjoy unlimited data, which doesn’t work lately but I can’t call to speak with my carrier because they need a pin assigned to me during my plan sign up. The problem with my pin? That when I called this company to deal with an issue signing up for online access to my plan, […]

3M Natural View Screen Protector Review

I admit I have had these for a while now and have yet to actually place them on my cell, but luckily I waited because I recently switched from a Blackberry Curve to a HTC Droid Incredible! I was able to test out the new 3m Natural View Screen Protector on my new Droid and here is my review of my thoughts on both the product and the process of placing this product on my Droid. First, let me tell you I have tried other screen protectors and had no such luck with them, oh sure they worked great but […]

Making Others Miserable To Build Yourself Up

All my life I have struggled with sticking up for myself, I like to be happy, smile and avoid conflict as often as possible. If a person in my life is full of jealousy, rage or similar traits I don’t do well with it for two reasons 1) It upsets me very deeply and 2) I don’t do anything about it except leave the situation. One thing I have been working on lately is being more assertive. When it comes to business and online marketing I am highly assertive and can be completely 100% confident but if it comes to […]

Technology & Family

Technology and family can certainly collide. It’s hard for parents to compete with technological advances while raising children. I personally don’t want a cell phone in the hands of my children, but as my children get older I realize it is going to be inevitable that they will end up with one of those nifty little cell phones or maybe a TracFone to start. Either way, as parents we can’t ignore the benefits of technological advances for both adults and children. Let’s talk about my BlackBerry Tour for a moment, which I am going to call BB, why? Well because […]

Embracing Friendship and Community

As I listen to my father and other “elders” {sorry Dad, I love ya, but you are an “elder” to me. LOL} I realize how the “good ol’ days” used to be. Everyone gave to each other, neighbors helped neighbors and people were happy, giving and were grateful for the family they had. All that matter was love, and a safe, healthy home.  When I visit my father’s home in Vermont, I see a large piece of this community type of giving and receiving. The state of Vermont is so friendly, no matter who you pass they nod their head […]

We’ll Talk About It Later

As I was lying next to my 6 year old last night talking to her, I suddenly remembered how adult like she is getting. When we go out in public she has to have her pocket book and she helps mommy out any chance she gets. I often here others refer to her as my “mini-adult” and that she is. About a month ago Ki decided she was in NEED of a cell phone so that she could call me anytime she wanted to while at her Daddy’s house. The conversation went something like this; Ki: “mommy I was thinking, […]
