Time To Play "7 Random Things" at Tonight's Virtual Girls Night Out!

Ann Again and again the original Virtual Girls Night Out

Booga Booga Booga!  It's almost Halloween, are you ready?  For The Harrison household let's go down the list:
  • Costumes?    Check
  • Decorations?   Check
  • Silly and or Scary Movie viewing?  Check
  • Candy?  
  • Candy?
  • Um, hello.  Candy?
No!  I haven't bought any candy yet.  I've learned my lesson from years past not to store bags of Halloween candy in our cupboards, even though the price was low and it would be more expensive the closer to October 31st.  You know why?  We always end up just wanting one, or two (or more) little bars of candy late at night, finish the bags then buy more candy later. Packing on the pounds because those darn 100 Grand bars are too hard to resist!  I'm going to distract myself from going to the store right now and immerse myself in our Friday night party, the original Virtual Girls Night Out!  Join me!

To participate In The Virtual GNO:  Enjoy this post! ;-> For our weekly Friday night blog party all you need to make this party complete is a beverage of your choice (cocktail recipe below for inspiration) and your fuzzy slippers! If you choose to participate with the meme and/or leave your blog link for guests to visit you that would be oh-so-nice! I started this blog party in 2008 and bloggers have been virtually partying ever since.  Visit your fellow party guests - say "Happy VGNO!!!"  Share the blog game/meme/question on your site to play along.

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.

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…
