Mommy Blues

Mommy Blues

Attitude is a funny thing, especially when the person serving it to you relies on you for everything. So if they decide to spit on your pillow and then need their butt wiped, you're at their mercy. My sweet, wants to cuddle, eager to please three-year-old is developing a serious case of the nasties lately. [...]

Decluttering: Expectations vs. Reality

Decluttering: Expectations vs. Reality

I'm definitely a freak for a clean house, but who else gets royally jazzed up over having the chores done? Last Thursday afternoon I went to my couch, commandeered my television from my kids, and faced Mount Laundry yet again.

Black Bean Burgers

Black Bean Burgers

Scrumptious, stay-together black bean burgers (vegan-friendly). The last recipe I blogged was all the way back in November, right around the time that I wrote Eating Mindfully, a post in which I outed myself as a brand new vegetarian. I was optimistic about my new lifestyle and even the dietary restrictions that went along with it. So, [...]
