New Year's Resolutions

I've been a bit slow on the setting of New Year's resolutions - or maybe I've already blown many of the ones I've set. My patience has been tested (by my kids), my house is a mess (thanks to my kids), and I haven't even gotten a shower every day  (primarily due to my kids having a snow day the 1st day back from Winter Break). 

But, kids don't have to impede on your New Year's goals. Many people are still following through on them.  For those of you still wondering what you're going to improve this new year, consider eating better and getting in shape, I heard of a program you might want to consider.  

My twin sister, who is an Arbonne Independent Consultant, has been telling me about a 30 Days to Healthy Living program she's doing with her husband. This program is more of a clean eating program as opposed to a diet.  During the 30 days, she's going to eliminate highly allergenic foods from her diet (gluten, dairy, soy,artificial sweeteners/flavors).  Of course since this is a program thru Arbonne, there are Arbonne products to help her out.  I've tried some of these products and I have to say they're pretty good, especially if you are looking for gluten free, dairy free, soy free, no artificial sweeteners/flavors/dyes and best part is they taste great.  

The goal of the program is to get rid of the toxins in her body and get her body working the way she says it should. My sister's goal is to get more energy and better energy. Of course, I think she's just trying to find an advantage when we figure out what half marathon we're going to run together this year.  You can check out my sister's website at christiannin.arbonne.com or post a comment for her to get in touch with you.

If you give a mom a coffee cup

If you give a mom a coffee cup, she'll say "thank you" and immediately go to the coffee pot. 

At the coffee pot, she'll start the coffee and pour herself a cup...noticing the full cup of cold coffee that she poured herself yesterday.

She'll take the cold cup of coffee to the sink, dump it down the drain, and go to put it in the dishwasher.

She'll open the dishwasher and realize that it's full of clean dishes that need to be put away.

She'll put away all of the clean dishes and then will put in the dirty - now empty - cup of coffee from yesterday.

She'll notice that there are other dirty dishes in the sink that need to go into the dishwasher, so she'll put them all in the dishwasher.

She'll then realize that there may be other dirty dishes other places in the house and will go looking for them...finding them in bathrooms, on the coffee table, under beds, and in the sandbox outside.

While looking for dirty dishes, she'll notice that ther…

Bummis Super Brite

It's been seven long years since I started this blog as a place to look for cloth diaper reviews.  In that time, my family has grown to a party of five.  For a variety of reasons, we didn't do a lot of cloth diapering with our middle child, but now #3 is here and the cloth diapers have come back out!  With so many new options for cloth diapering, I thought I'd take a look back at my original reviews and update as needed.

So, let's start with the Bummis Super Brite!  I am still a big fan of this diaper cover.  Not only does it provide excellent coverage to minimize blowouts and leaks, but it is also easy to use and stylish in it's super brite colors and new designs in Cactus, Tampa and Circus.

However, there is one point to note.  My baby #3 is not a tiny baby as my previous two children were.  He likes to eat and his size shows it.  So, as we've re-begun using cloth diapers, I've noticed that they don't all fit like they did on his siblings.  The Bummis…

Where has the Golden Rule gone?

You would have to be living in a cave or some extremely remote location with no access to satellite or wireless reception in order to not hear or read about American politics and the upcoming elections.  It's everywhere...and it's an all out war.  Or, at least that's what it seems like to me.  I usually try not to say too much about politics because I was taught that talking about politics in polite conversation was rude and uncivil.  Today's state of social media and 24-hour news has proven to me that this lesson is, sadly, true. 

As a parent, I am trying to instill a sense of respect in my children.  Yet, how am I to do this in a world where everyone is out to get anyone who thinks, speaks, looks, or acts differently than they do?  No, this isn't always about politics.  But, let's face it, we've politicized everything.  There has been no subject left untouched in this year's political race.  There's no topic deemed to be out of bounds.  So, where …
