We've been back from vacation for almost a week and oh boy, do we miss it.  So great to have a break, so wonderful to be able to drive a few hours and be in a completely different atmosphere.  LOVE Central Oregon!  Have you been able to have a break yet?  Well, if not, how about we have a little one now at the Virtual Girls Night Out?!

For our weekly Friday night blog party all you need to make this party complete is to grab a beverage of your choice (cocktail recipe below for inspiration) and your fuzzy slippers!

Time For Some Tunes!

The Sunday's "Summertime"

I've been going through a late '80's / '90's alt music phase this Summer. The Smiths, The Psychedelic Furs, Cocteau Twins.  Ah, youth.  (For those of you who say "That's before my time" - aah, yeah.  How nice for you.)  What were you listening to in the '90's?


Time For A Cocktail!

Time For Some Knowledge!

For those of you who don't know how to create a "cent" symbol when you're writing about prices, etc. I've found out how to do it!  Well, I found out for Microsoft Windows.  (If you're an Apple user - time to search!).  Here's the formula: Push your Num Lock button.  While holding down the Alt key push the numbers 0162 then voila!  A little cent symbol appears. (Num Lock + Alt key + 0162 = ¢).

I hope you enjoy your Virtual GNO everyone! I think I'll try to find my Walkman and play some tapes.  My girls will be so-o-o-o confused ;-> . Thanks for stopping by.  Cheers!

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…
