I dubbed myself The Evolving Mother because I want to continually be learning. There are many reasons why. The one for this writing is, as we learn we are smarter and make better decisions. I read my v.1 of this blog and cringe, just a little, at some of my word choices and phrases. The cringe comes with a huge pat on the back too. Because I wrote it and PUBLISHED IT! YAY ME! I could keep all versions of my writings in a file or I can choose to evolve. It has been so wor
What determines the successful are the plans they have for their lives. Wise words from J.D. Vance that I say to myself often. I used to think that a prestigious degree and a six figure income would make me successful. Sure there would be money in the bank and a diploma on the wall. Is that what success is? You may have figured out sooner than I did at my age that these papers, money and diploma, are just that-paper. It is what you do with them that makes the difference. I
No. It does not smell better, AND you still have to eat your vegetables! I can tell you where you can get some though if you live a gluten free life. This product is not yet readily available like many gluten free products. I had the opportunity to try some in San Diego. Unfortunately, the pump to purchase this fuel was not electronic! I stood at this kiosk dumbfounded. What century am I in? I thought for a second about the movie Back to the Future. 🚗 If gluten free is good
After all it is fall ya’ll! So, does an apple a day really keep the doctor away? Only if you eat them. I like apples as much as I like going to the doctor. It has taken me a long time to learn there is more than one kind of doctor. I mean apple. Fuji is my favorite kind of apple, but I still do not eat one a day. Now a banana, that is a daily morning ritual no one in my family wants to see broken. And, yes, it says a lot about my monkey-like behavior. I am full of ener
It’s important for me to feel productive. In order for that to happen, I must know my boundaries. There is a trick to this. It’s knowing your personality. Say WHAAAT!
As organized as I am, there are days that I do not get much done. While that might be ok a couple days of the week, I have commitments that I want to honor-to myself and others. I get frustrated on work days when I do not accomplish what is on my calendar. Sound familiar?
On days where there is so much
The title is not an oxymoron. It is possible to declutter AND save money! With knowledge and motivation, you can save money by decluttering and organizing your home. Did you know, 1 out of 10 Americans rent a storage unit because they have so much stuff? And, did you know, there are 5 times more storage units then Starbucks cafes!! Just think how many more Starbucks coffees you can have if you did not have that storage unit. Now there’s a motivational thought for you. Thi
This fourth of July was indubitably without its usual sparkle. Every writer this holiday weekend will take time to think of a word that will be unique so their message will be appealing and be read thoroughly. I didn’t have to tap my friend who has a ‘way with words’. I’m so proud of myself. I am even prouder that I finished this message as I have little sparkle or inspiration today. My mom would laugh and say I was full of bologna. It is true. When I was little I ate a lot o
There was a time not long ago when I was feeling deprived. Even when I followed my daily routine, I felt a sense of longing. Then this thing called a pandemic happened. I just thought I was deprived! So for the first two weeks of the stay-at-home order, I didn’t accomplish much. Or did I? I sat in my family room looking at my back yard mesmerized for long periods of time. I WAS out of bed though. Smiley-face. I wasn’t satisfied. I found that I was feeling deprived because I h
