On the second Saturday morning of every month, you’ll find me in the middle of a gaggle of one and two-year olds as I attempt to teach them about Jesus.In our church, the kids are taught by volunteers – usually women – who have day jobs and who spend part of Friday night trying to figure out what church outfit will work with the bending, lifting, squatting and reaching that is required when working with little kids.
I made banana bread today. My kids love it. The oldest ate four pieces after he woke up from a two-hour nap. (This means he won’t be going to sleep until 9:30 tonight but the silence in the house was golden.)It’s my mom’s recipe and it’s amazing.
It happens every year: around November 1, I go to Starbucks, ask for an eggnog latte and spend the next few days enjoying the delicious and expensive drinks every morning until I’ve spent my entire eating out budget before half the month is over.I’ve blogged about how to make eggnog lattes at home before, and here’s yearly reminder for all the eggnog latte lovers out there: they are cheap and easy to make at home.
You know that amazing feeling when you find a wad of cash in the dryer, all crumpled up and soft from surviving the laundry cycle?That’s how I felt when I re-read a blog post I wrote in May.I have another doctor’s appointment today, and I needed this reminder: You can’t do everything and that’s okay.Here’s my post from May:***
Once you have established your business and company and have made a very appealing website, now the next step will be to hire an SEO company to increase the ratings of your business on the main search engines., for that what you will do is type for top most SEO companies and you will get thousands of companies who all will promise to deliver the best to you.
Your instinct would be to select the top companies on the first page and contact them and give your business for search engine optimization.
I spent a handful of days not feeling like laughing. Luckily my husband was on a trip out of the country so he wasn't around to witness the mood or push me to snap out of it before I was ready. I'm probably still not ready but I have work to do. I am all about the work. I have been married to the same guy for 23 years. We have been together for 24 years. As you can imagine the past decades have afforded us many "funny" things. I am prompted to write about five funny things my relationship has taught me. Only 5? Meh.
When thinking about Human Resources and social media, notions of walking on eggshells, being politically correct, and biting your tongue might come to mind. But HR professionals are actually heavily engaged on social media platforms, and you ought to be aware of what they’re talking about. Why? Odds are you’ll one day be looking for a new job one day, and having solid connections can keep you consistently employed.
No word count on todays NaNoWriMo, mostly due in fact that I am hosting a Write In down at the library and will be doing my writing then. So, it will be later tonight before I get my writing in and get that word count. Only 15 days left to go!! WOOT! So now on to BlogHer Todays prompt:
My car was overdue for an oil change. Overdue in miles, not time. I was barely past the suggested 3 months. But I was about 1,300 miles past the recommended mileage. With colder weather heading our way, I figured I should take the time to get this done. Plus, it's a task that was easy to accomplish - go to my normal dealership where people there know me by name (or at least by vehicle), go to a very early morning appointment on a weekday, sit in the waiting room listening to music and/or reading a book for about an hour. Easy.
Blog attempt - Round 2! Sharing what I am learning about striving for an uncomplicated life of faith that is rooted in love.Lord, give me the skill to be a woman of consistency who doesn't quit in the face of failure or opposition:)
No one ever said that life was going to be easy. From the moment we are born it is all about hitting milestones, then we hit school, there is the constant nag from the teachers about how hard we need to work in order to achieve and succeed. I, like probably most, knew I would have a family at some point but left school with the desire to create a career for myself. We all want to earn our own money and earn our own stripes in the world.
Like millions and millions of other people in the US, things are still hard. They are still emotional. We're moving through grief and fear and sadness and anger and depression and rebellion and rage and everything in between. We're not experiencing them in a linear fashion. We're not experiencing them all at once. We're not experiencing an emotion and then moving on, never to experience that emotion again. We experience them often. We experience them deeply.We wonder if we'll ever feel anything positive again.
Campbell downtownPublishing a post every got a bit challenging this weekend. It's hard to take the time to post something good when you're planning and celebrating your birthday party. My post from yesterday was a bit blah. Happy birthday to me! We had a wonderful night with close friends, champagne and cake at midnight and with lots of laughter and dancing and almost no political conversations. And today my family and I rode our bikes to Campbell downtown for a birthday brunch (acute lack of clean dishes).
We are all on the same journey.Each generation assumes their children will have the same values and desires—even though the world changes every day. Because people are living longer and leading more productive lives, we are in a unique situation where, for the first time in history, there are four distinct generations working together under the same global roof—at the same time.
What I’ve learned is that sometimes people give only because it gives them something, said my friend. It is a self-serving pat-on-the-back, not because they want the recipient to be truly honoured. But because they feel needed, she continued.My friend is a giver, she is generous and quiet about doing it. She does not speak of how she gives of her time and encouragement unless
Another day with no offered writing prompt from BlogHer, so another snippet of my newest novel will have to suffice. Little snippets, little teases. I did managed a decent word count today for my NaNoWriMo – 2065, bringing my total up to 30402. Not bad at all.
The kid's games on the online sites are much trendy mainly because of the presence of interesting superheroes and beautiful dolls. Teen titans go games are also such games, which have many recognized characters, which are depicted here.Raven-

Strategies are successful, like running Instagram promotions and connecting with influencers.
I feel like such a fool. My post yesterday about the election was about the damn sticker. I was being light hearted and making light of the election when I should have been doing more to get Hillary elected (or Bernie for that matter).Everyone was so hopeful and joyous and having fun posting pantsuit selfies and reveling in the awesomeness of being a woman and witnessing history.And now here we are.
The day after the election I found myself in the presence of a more than likely Trump voter.I was curious. I was surprised. I was wary. I wanted to say something but it was too soon; I was still trying to process what had happened. I was also a little bit scared of what I would find out if I engaged with her.But I regret being silent. I was a coward and chose to ignore her because I couldn’t handle her truth. I wasn’t confident that I would be able to represent my side well enough.
Blogging is really fun, even if you do not enjoy writing that much. You can easily express your ideas without too many constraints of literacy. Not that you will create a piece that is painful to even try to read, but it is a place where you can drop your ideas as they come to mind. If you have found a passion and you want to write about it, blogging is a great way to express your feelings and thoughts on it. Or maybe, you have started a blog just to write the mere thoughts of your mind on any topic to be named.

It's been a slow day in my world. I don't have much to say today. (I can hear the collective sigh from here.)I did some work for GCLS, because, as a lesbian, I feel it's important that our stories continue to be told. So I will do the work I need to do to keep our organization thriving. The books my friends write serve as a powerful form of rebellion. Besides buying their books, this is one thing I can do to assist them.

I've read an interesting blog post about the benefits of Expat life and I realized once more that I am not a huge fan of the term expat. It sounds a bit pretentious sometimes. For me expats often are these mid-twenties who go to Hongkong, Shanghai or Dubai, work a cool job, earn shitloads of money and only hang out with other expats, in expat bars and do expat stuff. I do definitely not consider myself part of this group.
Well, my word count for NaNoWriMo is climbing daily, even though I only managed 1669 words this morning. I am in pain so bad from my back. This spinal surgery, though I dread it, is not coming along fast enough.
