Unstoppable - Book Review

It's quite rare that I pick up a book and don't finish it. When this has happened in the past, I've plowed through it on occasion, finding some satisfaction in the book or (more often) just being plain bored and uninterested. In more recent years though, if something doesn't interest me by around halfway, then I just stop reading it. To continue is torture, for me. To stop is freedom. I can move on to something more interesting or enlightening or entertaining....more

The Importance of Taking the Time to Do Reviews

It’s that time of year again. Time for turkeys, ham, stuffing, gravy, family toasts, tiffs over where the Christmas party will be held, and, of course, time for year-end reviews. As a mother of two, the word “review” firstly makes me think of the school reviews my husband and I sit through regarding how our boys are doing in elementary school. Though as a business owner, the word applies to my reviewing  employees. It’s an important thing to do, review, both in the school and office setting.Here are three reasons to take your employee reviews seriously this year:...more

My Unexpected Day of Pumpkin Puree

Today I got to have an unexpected day off of work! I was notified this morning that my babysitter's daughter was up all night last night getting sick and had a fever. That meant I had (got) to stay home with my youngest son as the two older children went to school. Lately I have been really needing an extra day off, and saw this as a blessing. Of course I hope my friend's daughter gets better quickly and doesn't have a serious bug or anything… BUT I decided to use today to my advantage and do something I have been wanting to do. Spend some time on myself, for myself… and my kids. ...more

Just My Thoughts- Rant, Raves, and Reviews

This is my first foray into blogging of any kind but I wanted to try to find a place to put up my thoughts, like most everyone else now a days.  A little bit about me, I am a wife and mother, wife for 13 years and mother now for 10 and I love every minute of it.  I work nights so I don't see too many other people so I wanted a way to express my thoughts about stuff that came to mind.  I hope whoever reads this enjoys it.  A bit more about me and my pseudonym.  Fool's Angel comes from a twist on a phrase that my husband and I came up with years and years...more

Thursday's Three

Thursday's Three  This week has been more mellow than the past few. My baby has been sleeping through the night (thankfully!) my husbands' work schedule seems to be more consistent, and I'm more rested. So thinking of three things that made my life simpler this week was rather difficult. But after much thought, it really wasn't as hard as I thought....more
