Virtual Girls Night Out - Controlled Chaos

I've planned 3 birthday parties for the month of December.  I'm on the eve of the first one for my newly minted 11 y/o old and her friends, so I really need to hang with my blog buddies and have a Virtual Girls Night Out with the "big girls" before I'm covered in pink and glitter and too much sugar.  Whoo Hoo!


Time For Some Tunes!

*I'm not going wild with this choice. Feeling a calm vibe from the impending full moon tomorrow night.*

Nick Drake "Pink Moon"


Technically the Pink Moon is in April so... I will most likely be playing this video again.  Love it so!!! :->

Time For A Cocktail!

Full Moon Number 2
Ingredients:
Directions:
Tilt a brandy snifter and pour in the amaretto. While still tilting, add grand marnier. Gently "roll" snifter in the tilted position, set upright, and serve.

Short and sweet.  How delightful.

Time For A Question!

How is your holiday season going so far?  My husband and I have by-passed the logical "family planning" part of the program and have 2 wonderful children, soon-to-be 14 y/o Katie and newly minted 11 y/o Lily, that have both been born in the month on December.  This is a fun month, let me tell ya' !!!  How are things for you this season?  Do you embrace the chill that falls around you and go for long walks while all bundled?  Do you visit special neighborhoods that decorate with a thousand lights while you're supplied with mugs of hot cocoa?  (And perhaps other yummy adult beverages? ;-> )  Do you partake in Christmas pageants at church, tearing up at the precious little one's and their sweet voices reciting sacred words?  Do tell.  I would love to know.

O.K. dear blog buddies, I hope you have a wonderful time at our Virtual Girls Night Out.  Thanks for helping me through my birthday party extravaganza!

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 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. An addiction, no matter what it is to, can consume the person who is addicted and it can also be fat…
