The Pause Button

Before I speak and before I react, I am going to pause, breathe deeply and think.  I am going to get into alignment and use each new situation to steer myself back into the vortex.  I am Calm and I am peaceful. I am going to think of the joy that these precious beings bring me.

Page Turners

I devour books and want to instill the love of reading in my kids. In the past year we have delved into some great storytelling. The Percy Jackson Percy Jackson and the Olympians Paperback Boxed Set (Books 1-3)series was a favorite of all three of my boys, ages 6, 8, and 14. It is a great way to learn about greek gods and enjoy some adventure.

The next series we read was Fablehaven Fablehaven (Boxed Set): Fablehaven; Rise of the Evening Star; Grip of the Shadow Plague
This series kept us up way after bedtime and on the edge of our seats. This one only appealed to my 8 year old, and put my six year old to sleep.

Currently we are reading The Land of Elyon Land of Elyon - Boxed I will keep you posted. Happy reading.

I can't believe its been 10 years and counting....

Just in case...

I thought about posting this on FB or twitter but people actually read my updates there, so I decided I am going to say it out loud but in a whisper here on my blog. I am tired of diapers and I think its time to go back to Shooter using the potty. Status update is 2 peed in pants, but he did go to the right spot to pee. No more disposables and cloth in the car, unless of course my mom is watching him. There I said it, sorta.

Manifesting Style

I live on a hill in large town in a busy state yet where I live feels totally rural. I have a garden and chickens and neighbors I can holler at, yup life is good. Since my youngest was born, i have been walking every day, stretching my boundaries outside my hill. On one such walk I realized that almost everything I needed or wanted was within walking distance. Ok, I can't walk to the beach but I can get to a grocery store, movie store, and many fine restaurants. Which brings me to my latest find, thrift stores. Now, up until now, I would say I am a boutique girl. Love the one of a kind feel, and support the local guy thing, but lately I am loving my goodwill. First off there is never a nosy sales lady hanging over your shoulder, you shop in peace and quiet. And, it is a quest for the treasure, the hidden gem. Every thing is under $5 bucks and there is no sales tax! Woo Hoo! The best part is I can walk there. From designer jeans to my theory trench, I pick um up and drop um next store at the dry cleaners and voila a rotating wardrobe of delectable duds!
