I Blew It! And What The...?!?

So we go to my daughter's softball league end-of-year picnic. (So many people!) As we are trying to find our teams table I see a neighbor, who is also a friend. (Well, we are friendly when we see each other, but we don't call, or hang-out. You know what I mean.)
For whatever reason my neighbor felt comfortable enough to share some deep feelings.
I just wasn't prepared.
I'm surrounded by Little Leaguers, hot dogs and raffle tables and here is a woman needing to talk.
I was pulled away by my oldest and smiled at my neighbor who smiled back and said "I'll catch up with you". But she didn't. It was a busy afternoon.
I didn't see her when we left and I didn't get a hold of her last night.
She's not a close friend, however she reached out to me and I didn't respond the way I should have. What is my problem?
Ugh.
Well, I think this is all very interesting because I'm just finishing up the book "A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose", and I think I should go back and re-read some chapters!
I am going to take this opportunity to share in a game that I was "tagged" for by Nancy at Vellum and At First Glass.
I'm turning to my nearest book, turning to page 123, finding the fifth sentence then posting the next three sentences.
So here we go...
"A New Earth..." E. Tolle p. 123
"Cooperation is alien to the ego, except when there is a secondary motive. The ego doesn't know that the more you include others, the more smoothly things flow and the more easily things come to you. When you give little or no help to others or put obstacles in their path, the universe-in the form of people and circumstances-gives little or no help to you because you have cut yourself off from the whole."
Holy Crap!!!
What?!?
This is no joke. I did NOT plan this at all!
I'm kind of freaking out right now. Hmmm...
I'm going to try and get a hold of her right now.
Would anyone else like to partake in this "tagging"? If so, let me know.
Something cool might happen.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
