Sweet Summertime

Due to the fact that this is Summer and I firmly believe Summer is the best time to focus on family fun, my blog does not have as many updates. You see, I started to feel bad because after all this is my income, but on the other hand, I remembered that this is the last Summer I have before all three of my kids are in school full time. Yes, my “baby” is headed off to full day Kindergarten this year and how that makes me sad in some ways. On another hand, I am happy to have the […]

My Daughter and her Hair

Every morning I ask my daughter if I can do her hair. I miss the days when she would happily let me do pig tail braids, one big braid or two french braids in her hair but those days have passed us  in our mother/daughter lives. It is now the season for hair brushed and kept down. All. The Time. And yes at times she does taunt me with that look of “what you gonna do about it?” when I ask if I can do her hair and she replies no then I pout like a little kid. No. Take […]

Short Term Shortage for Long Term Happiness

Sometimes life throws me 100 curve balls at once and it’s uber frustrating to try to stay on the happy train, the oh everything will work out just fine thought pattern. Then there are those times when you have 100 things tossed at you and you take the time to separate each into priority. Once you check off one item, you move onto the next. Do not take too much time, but try to just resolve this one thing then the next and the next. Like I wrote the other day, sometimes you have to just take one thing at […]

Trying to Get Back on Schedule

I have to laugh at myself because I am often saying how I am not routine driven, that I am a free spirit and not a planner but then things happen to mess up my normal schedule or routine that set me off for a loop, taking me a long time to get back on track. It even goes so far as to make me tense, the shoulders get hard as boulders and my mind is completely frazzled. But I am not routine driven like my middle child, nope nope nope! I lied. I am.Totally. 100% routine driven. So when […]

Where Did The Week Go?!

Image via Wikipedia I have been busy working behind the scenes, not only on blogging but my business and doing client work. I may or may not be going some time without the internet here again, lovely little tests of my sanity. Of course internet is my income as well as my fun so really …. no internet means Brandy gets frustrated on what to do, I am a work-acholic you know?! Guess if no internet for a short period of time comes about then I will just have to resort to my mom-aholic skills. I multi-task every single day, […]

End of Summer Blues?

As it nears the end of Summer I find myself in a gloomy mood. I feel sad, just want to sleep and it’s been hard to keep those happy thoughts coming. One thing I am here for is to help spread cheer and happiness. I am not here to say life is perfect and I never feel sad because if I pretended that I am always happy or that I am never depressed then I would be lying to you and that my friends is not my intentions. I wish to be open, honest and approachable by all. I want […]

Writing a Real Novel

Image via Wikipedia I have always wanted to have some published pieces of writing – mostly I thought of poetry – but lately I have been thinking of writing a book or a novel. I have so many ideas, and found that when brainstorming what I would write about I often tried to focus on motherhood, children and other family friendly type topics. Although I would love to write a family friend novel, my passion appears to be in romance or something that would be more of an adult label than a family friendly label. I have always enjoyed writing, […]
