Virtual GNO - Yes. I Am Aware Of What This Sunday Is.

This morning my 12 yr. old has to give a speech in front of the class. Ugh. Does anyone enjoy doing this?!? And last night she decided to change her topic. Way to add more stress there Honey. Her father and I have experience speaking in front of an audience so we gave as much advice as she could handle. I'm still nervous. I know what I need to take my mind off of it... a Virtual Girls Night Out!

"A Rap For Mother's Day"


"You're my mom, Mom. And I love you like my mom." Fantastic!!! (I'm going to pretend that these are my girls due to the fact that, like in the video, my youngest is also named Lily. Pathetic... I know)


Time For A Giveaway!

Guess what giveaway I have going now? The NINE DVD! I love musicals! For your chance to win please visit Ann Again... and again Reviews. (Due to advertising restrictions giveaways happen on my other site.)


Time For A Question!

So, what are your plans for Mother's Day? What has been happening for the past, oh say 6 years, is that my husband takes our girls and has Father/Daughter time while I get the house to myself, watch a movie and drink champagne. Yeah baby! Well, this year will be different in that my 12 yr. old will be leaving for Outdoor School on Sunday afternoon. *sniff* I'm sad, but her little sister, who she shares a room with, is very excited! ;-> . What are you doing this Mother's Day?


*OK, blog pals. Time to visit blog friends at this VGNO. Add your blog link to Linky Tools and have fun hopping around. And... if you don't have time to blog-hop tonight, that's cool. Add your link anyway & I bet you'll be able to visit friends tomorrow... or the next day... or the next day. Happy VGNO! *

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.
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 Help Your Loved One to Recover

It can be very difficult to have a loved one who is battling an addiction. It can be hard to know what to do or how to help. Luckily there are many resources, programs and even rehabilitation centers that are specifically designed to not only help you to know what to do but also to help your loved one to recover.

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. You don't want to make your loved one resent you or to be angry with you because you are trying to get them to stop, but you also can't just stand by and watch.
