Great to Meet Everyone!

Hello to all! I am a single mother with 4 kids, ranging in ages from 6 to 15, and I work more than full-time right now trying to start up a company with my sister, as an internet marketing consultant, and as a website designer (though somehow I'm not earning any money yet, LOL).  I'm hoping to make some great connections here, learn some new stuff, and have fun.  Thanks!Sandrawww.DailyOrg.comOrganization for Life...more

Introducing Myself

Hi everyone. I am just now joining some more groups here on BlogHer and wanted to say hello. I am 42 and have children. They are my step-children, but I adopted them and so they are bought and paid for. They are 11 and 13 and I still have my sanity, but am unsure about the future of my sanity. Today, I blogged about human motherhood vs. raising puppies. Prepare for cute puppy pics!   Cindy Brown ...more

  Has anyone had a book published? Did you do self-publishing? If so, which company did you use? How was your experience?

Also I make him repeat his sentences in a much more polite manner until he gets it right. Thoughts?   ...more
