Sometimes little challenges in life are annoying, embarrassing, and if they happen frequent enough, they become our lovely pet peeves (I think I wrote a post about pet peeves, oh yes, that’s right I did… after you read this post, you should head over and read that one… do you see how I was clever in bringing up an old post- the old ones need attention too ya know?! it’s screaming out “read me! please read me!” so click here when you’re done reading the rest of this awesomely, most cleverly, creatively post.) yup, made up some words to add more umph and power to the discription!
So you’re at a park, a kid is running out to the playground happy to be among his own age group to talk fart-talk, ramble on about Pokemon, Lego’s, Barbie’s and can’t forget about Shopkins, when all of a sudden one of the hover-parents comes along to change the entire atmosphere of the group… shoot the little Minions think, we’re being watched, run away from the kid whose parent is spying on us. Oh dang, your kid is thinking… all alone, so alone…
What do you think hovering tells your kids? How does it affect them? What happened between the generations that has caused parents to hover and worry so much? Why do we judge other parents as neglectful parents when they let their kids roam free in the park as they sit on a bench talking to others or reading a book? [Read more…]
So many of us live in the great nation of the United States, we go out and celebrate the 4th of July and I wonder how many of us remember from school, just what this Holiday stands for, what is the history of the 4th of July, what exactly is Independence Day for our nation? …And I know I have wonderful subscribers from other countries, and I encourage you to research more about your country and share it in the comments if you’d like!
Let us all take pride in the places we live and keep an open mind to learn about other countries as well.
The History Of Independence Day
So you have little rooms, hardly any storage, where in the heck do you put your awesome things? No, not the trash, not in a storage area located outside of your premises, not under the bed, but in the wall… say whaaattt?! In the wall? what are you talking about?

Is there a right or wrong way to tell children Mama and Dada are no longer living in the same house, and that things are going to change for everyone? It’s a conversation that is difficult, saddening, and hard for kids to understand. So how can we make this conversation the best it can be, so they understand and still feel some hope for happiness in the future? [Read more…]
The Almighty Rebound
No this post is not about Basketball, although I love that sport! This post is about ending the war between you and your loved one, it’s about splitting up, it’s about calling it quits on a long-term relationship and getting back into the single life. But how does one re-enter the dating world after being in a marriage or long-term relationship? Have things changed after not dating for 10 years, give or take? When is a good time to go out and start this ‘does he/she like me or is he/she just not into me?’ Do people, in general, jump right back into dating? Do they give themselves enough time to cope, to find themselves, to readjust to their new life? and Do they need a rebound? [Read more…]

What To Do This Summer, Ideas & Gear For You!
Oh dang, someone has asked you to do something you don’t want to do, but for some reason you feel guilty saying no, you feel obligated! Your mouth blurts out Yes, and your body wants to detach your right leg, for a brief moment, to kick your own butt, then grab your left arm and give you a good smack to wake up and be brave enough to say NO! Why can’t we just say no? what’s this extreme guilt that clouds our mind and takes over our morals and happy to relax time? why must we say yes? why can’t people let us say no without taking it personal or giving us the hurt puppy eyes?
