Why I took the pledge to support moms:

Take the StrongMoms Empowerment Pledge

Being a Mom is an on the job learning experience every single second. We have to pay attention because our kids grow up way to fast. I know we all have those long nights when we are all tired, and babies are crying, but the joy of watching our kids grow up healthy, happy, and loved is so worth lack of sleep, because we can always take a nap!

My two girls are turning into young ladies, and young women. I home schooled them when others wondered why and how. It was our time to stay together and learn together. I never have regretted one day of homeschooling. By sixth grade I think we outgrew our school at home, and Dad and I enrolled them in a local Parochial School.  They were ready, they slide right into their appropriate grades and sailed through school with ease.
Maybe our families wondered how the girls learn all they needed to know.
Maybe people wondered why we all out shopping while it was "school hours"
Maybe their friends wondered why the girls got to stay home from "school" all day.
Maybe the school system even wondered what home schooling was.
Being a mom qualifies us to be their teacher.
To teach skills, values, and morales.
How to tie their shoes.
How to read.
How to spell.
How to do math, well my husband had to help in that area. I just don't like Math.
How to learn about other countries and their culture.
How to learn all the things "school kids need to know"
How to respect each other.
How to play nice, share, take turns.
We learned it all, all together.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews. My kitchen sink has never shined so much, the bathrooms are cleaner, and now Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care is now here! It is new, it smells nice, and it is so easy to use. Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara. Easy to understand directions are on the back of the box, and don't forget to cut out the Box Tops For Education Label before you toss the cardboard into your recycling bin.   How to make this warm hearty meal for your family: open a box of Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet. I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
