Virtual Girls Night Out & UBP '10 Blow Out!

I woke to the BIGGEST black spider hanging out on the wall of my living room. It was HUGE I tell ya'! And you know what? I took care of it. No screaming, no waving of arms, no telling my husband 'Eek! You take care of it!' It was just me, my trusty Dyson and the leggy nemesis. (It was so flippin' huge I didn't have a jar big enough to fit over it! Good Lord.) But it's gone now to that big-spider Heaven, where ever that is. So you know what I'm in the mood for? A Virtual Girls Night Out and some ultimate partying with 5 Minutes For Mom!

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.

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.

Addiction is a very real problem all over the world, and in the United States alone there are ever 23 million Americans who are struggling with some sort of addiction. Over 64 percent have had to deal with the emotional aspect of having someone close to them who was battling an addiction.

You can feel very helpless when you are close to someone who is battling an addiction, and it can be hard to know what to do.
