Is it really Friday already?  I'm not sure why but this week flew by.  How was it for you?  My sister and I are heading up to Federal Way, WA to get my dad's house packed up and get him ready to move closer to his family in Dundee, OR.  He'll only be a 50 minute drive from us now :->  (Little more of the story here: "This Should Be Interesting".)  We're also getting into Halloween gear here at the Harrison house.  We're looking for some scary movies to watch; some for the kids, some for the adults.  Have any suggestions?  Any favorites? Please leave in the comments below.  And let's get our Virtual Girls Night Out going! :->

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!

Time For A Question!

Halloween is weeks away and my daughters are so excited.  My youngest, Lily, has said that this is her favorite holiday.  (More than Christmas?  Wow.) We're pretty tame when it comes to scary movies, incredibly tame actually.  Scary movies just aren't my thing but I have a brother-in-law that absolutely loves them and is always recommending movies for us to see.  The last scary movie we saw was The Ring.  Egads!  Not that I'm in the mood to see another movie that will have me screaming and hiding my eyes but... do you have a favorite scary movie to recommend?  Please share in the comments.



Thanks for hangin' out at our weekly Virtual Girls Night Out.  See you next Friday!

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.
