I don’t know about you, but I’m still on a high from this historic election! This is certainly an exciting time for our country. We saw a lot of firsts! The first female vice presidential nominee and of course, the election of the first African-American to the Oval Office. It was electrifying to see people around the country unite, and become intimately involved in the political process
I've had recurring dreams for as long as I can remember. I either end up on a rollercoster that goes up, up, up into the clouds, I'm running from a tornado, I'm naked (and not in a good way) or my teeth are falling out. When I was pregnant, I always had dreams about my cats.
Naomi Epel's Writer's Dreaming, is a collection of interviews from writers on how their dreams influence their creative process. When I got to the chapter on Clive Barker, of Hellraiser fame, I was tempted to skip it. I will confess I have not read his works and have not seen any of the Hellraiser films, so I have no right to any opinion on the man at all. But really, his name did not jump out to me as a great author of our time, as say a Maya Angelou or Isabelle Allende.
admit it. I have a pretty bad case of the new mom overwhelmed. Maybe
it's not even a bad case, it could be a perfectly average case, but
either way it is taking a toll on me. I've been getting out during the
day, trying to get out with just Sherman, trying to be a part of group
activities with friends, but it's still hard. I still feel different,
a little isolated, a little confused.
Communication is the key to making your dreams reality.
So take time to share your dreams and aspirations with your partner. Make it a point to come to an agreement about what you both envision.
Now you’re probably thinking what does this have to with saving? A lot.
By making sure that the two of you are on the same page it becomes easier to plan and keep each other focused on the task at hand.
This was the question that vexed me
during the time I was "away" (which is how I refer to the period of my
affair because I didn't live in my body, I was more like a robot than
anything.) Was Other my soul mate? Was there such thing? I had never
thought so, I didn't think there was just one person out there for me.
year after I was married my best friend and I went to a psychic. She
didn't say anything of much consequence to my bf besides telling her
that she wasn't with her soul mate, that made her angry.
I always wanted to be a mom. From the time I was a little girl running around with my baby dolls and stuffed animals all the way through my college years and beyond, motherhood was something I wanted most of all. No other career seemed as important. No other mission for my life as meaningful. Being a mom was the pie in the sky.

I'm honored to be included in the line up at Heart of the Matter Homeschool Teleseminar!
There are some awesome speakers. I'll be addressing "How to Follow Your Dream and Homeschool" on Friday at 11:45!
I've figured out how to log in and talk, and I'm polishing up my speech.
Randy Pausch is dead. Long live Randy Pausch! And long will he live after spending the last few month his life helping millions think about what they want out of life...and giving them the courage to pursue it.
At a particular point in a stressful life, I stopped painting, sculpting, or doing any needlework. I went weeks without thinking so much as one thought about colour or texture, without an idea for a new garment or song lyrics. And I didn't notice.
What I did notice was that I felt awful. Depressed. Empty but at the same time stuffed with some anxiety that used my heart to bang on the bars of my rib cage in the middle of the night so that I sat upright in bed to fight or flee.
