How to be Chill:  Partly Sunny with a Chance of Tsunami

How to be Chill:  Partly Sunny with a Chance of Tsunami I used to rant and rave. Honestly, I can still go on a tirade.  There is stuff that offends me.  And, there is stuff that makes me throw up a little. Maybe it is because I am getting older, but I don’t get as crazed as I used to. Perhaps it is just a season, a season of chill. But I would like to believe, this is me, the …

“Dude!?!?!” and Other Inappropriate “Prayers” I Say to Jesus

“Dude!?!?!” and Other Inappropriate Things I Say to Jesus Here among the humans, which call me mommy, mom, Baby, Jami-Jo, and ‘Muuuuther,” insert premenstrual 16-year-old insolence, I am well known. They know. And the stuff they know, some of you know too. Because I am known for being… candid.

Oh no… did I order pizza…are those Snicker’s wrappers?” Back off, I never promised you a health and wellness blog.  Alas, I am awake, and words are fresh… and I have not been …

Get a Bikini Ready Body In Two Easy Steps

Get a Bikini Ready Body In Two Easy Steps

Get a bikini ready body.  I’d be lying if I said I didn’t frequent the Dr. Oz page.   The desire starts early.  Our fourteen-year-old just performed in a recital and when she watched the video after she said, “Oh my gosh, my abs are a mess.” While choosing her swimsuit, she lamented the same.

Jesus Loves Mommy: Salvation In Spite of my Motherhood

No, no, I am so glad you are here!” I gave away my dinner to a college-baby who popped in for the evening. “Oh please, I don’t need new shoes!” And I hobbled through the next few months in shoes that needed to be replaced …
