365 Days. 41

365 Days.

One year ago today I received the last call regarding my Dad and his health. The one where the nurse very apologetically says, “Your Dad. He died some time in the night.” He had died in his sleep as most kidney failure deaths occur. As the body becomes more riddled with toxins the periods of consciousness become shorter and shorter and the sleep becomes heavier and heavier. He had a strange bought of lucidness the night before where he told my brother he wasn’t dying and he needed to go home. While we had both read about this occurring as...

A Day. 4

A Day.

Today was one of those days. Not bad in any way, but a day I never really understood until I became a SAHM. A day I used to read about from other women who were Stay At Home Moms, and then silently acknowledged that days like that are why I couldn’t be a SAHM. A day that went non-stop from the second I woke up until now…when it is still currently going on. When I worked in an office my days were long, but they were broken up between OFFICE and HOME. Not a solid day of ONE JOB. Because...

I’ll Never Be a Nutritionist

So…we watched the much-hyped Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution this past Friday. It got me really thinking about how I feed my kids. Thinking for THREE days. THINKING AND THINKING AND THINKING. Because since I’ve watched the show, I’ve monitored feedback on blogs and twitter and have come to the realization that this is a VERY touchy subject. For me. Let’s begin with the facts: Our family is mildly healthy. We rarely eat fast food, and when when we do we rarely choose fried options. When we do go fried it’s inevitably the Chik-fil-A chicken sandwich because OH MY GOD. They’re...

Time Keeps on Ticking, Ticking, Ticking…

I’ve got a few different daily meditation books I’ve been using to try to give me focus points throughout my day. There were too many to choose from and I felt like I need a little of what each were offering, so I picked a general one about spirituality, one about anxiety, and one for busy women. This is the meditation from yesterday from the busy women option. …how much of the constant repetitive housework I do is because of my need to keep busy and not because it actually needs to be done? One of the characteristics of a...

One of those boring entries ABOUT blogging. Feel free to move along if you’re not a blogger.

Recently a someone asked me how I recommended they increase their traffic as, “My stats have only gone up, like 5% in the last year.” Heh. And you’re coming to me…WHY? I am constantly caught off guard when people assume I know about successful blogging. I dont make money of my site, I’m not on any sort of A-list of SUPER ENTERTAINING BLOGGERS. And I’m most certainly NOT an expert in traffic. Especially since my numbers have been consistently declining since I signed up for Sitemeter in 2006. August 2006 thru March 2007 This was my first few months of...
