Sometimes LIFE happens, and sometimes, you kill something…

Last year, I had a friend of mine, who is certified in feng shui, come over and help me with the feng shui in my home. LUCKILY, she said that my home laid out pretty well, and I wouldn't have to correct too much in the ways of "bad feng shui." THANK the COCK of JUPITER (OK, I've been watching too much SPARTACUS > and if you haven't, you TOTALLY should!), because my husband already thinks I am looney, and if I had to tell him "honey, could you please relocate the bathroom to the opposite corner of the house - because it's bad feng shui" one more time, I think he *might* just divorce me. This is usually when I remind him, "don't forget, I one DAMN hot bitch." I *usually* get what I want until the next time I ask him something that seems ridiculous at first blush. Anyway, I digress. So my feng shui friend asks me, "Do you have any problems? Sometimes we can address problems in your life by re-directing the feng shui in your home." Well, since you mention it, I have these … [Read more...]

And that’s how you NINJA kick Lupus in the ass and take back your life…

PERSPECTIVE - some times you've got it in spades, and some times, it's so easy to loose. And some times, it hits you at the most profound moments in life - moments that make you just want to cry for the shear simplicity of it all. And that's what this blog post is about. If you're looking for something funny today, come back tomorrow. This one will hit you right in the heart - in that place between love and heartache....if you stick through this entire post, I promise you, it DOES have a good ending. So, my daughter has Lupus. It's really hard for me to say it out loud, as at times, I feel if I say it out loud, I am giving it more life than it deserves. But, it's a fact, and the worse part of it is, I'm not the one dealing with LUPUS. My daughter is. My sweet little bundle of hope and joy. My baby! She's 16 now, and she's been living with it pretty much her entire life. She was diagnosed with it at age 5. Lupus is one of those chronic diseases that can take away your ability to … [Read more...]

Overheard a 5 year old say: Dear Lord, Please let this day be better than yesterday.

Yesterday, at a local bagel shop, I sat across from a table of 3 people - a mother (a neighbor I recognized), and her two kids, ages 4 and 5. The mom comes back to the table with bagels and cream cheese. Before digging into his bagel, he stops and puts his hands into prayer mode and says: Dear Lord, please let this day be better than yesterday. His mom looks at me, and says, "They've been working on prayers at Sunday school. I *really* have to work with him on his gratitude prayers!" and we both burst out laughing. So, I thought, what better way than to start the day than with a few words of gratitude. Here are mine for the day: Dear Lord, I am very grateful that I am not in childbirth today. I am also grateful that if I were giving birth to a child today, I would have a choice of an epideral or an epideral. So I guess what I'm saying is that I am REALLY grateful I am not only NOT birthing a child today, but that we are no longer in the 1900's when women were expected to … [Read more...]
