I never had any sisters, so I cannot relate. The age spread between Lora and Sarah was huge (10 years), so that was a different situation as well.
Over the last few days I have noticed an interesting dynamic brewing in the house. Ruthie (8yo) has all of a sudden latched on to Sarah (13yo) and [...]

I confess…I am a tightwad. Almost everything I buy has to be on some kind of special or sale. Want to hear my latest acquisitions?
Well…unfortunately, I sold all of my baby-wearing gear after Isaiah grew past babyhood. This means that I have been shopping the baby carriers trying to decide what I want to [...]

Do you do the heated water bed? Electric blanket? Tons of quilts? Heated mattress pads? We have a wool quilt and an electric blanket that keep us toasty. Every year I look at heated mattress pads and wonder how nice it would be to have heat coming up from underneath you in bed too. [...]

Interrupting the regularly scheduled posts on vitamins, colon cleanses and adult acne to brag on my daughter for a moment.
She has decided to donate all of her birthday money to the people in Haiti devastated by the recent earthquake. Honestly…my jaw dropped when she told me her decision…and then my old mama heart swelled with [...]

It all started about 23 years ago when my aunt made a birth sampler for Lora when Lora was a baby. Although I knew how to cross stitch, it never occurred to me to make a birth sampler. Well…that little gesture started something that has become a tradition as our family has grown. When I [...]

Yep…that’s what I’m aiming for this pregnancy. I started a tad underweight, so hubby is actually pushing me to gain a little more than I’d like. So far I seem on track and I’ve definitely filled out already.
I can hardly wait for the end of all of this when I am faced with the [...]

Winter skin is a tough one…Cracking hands, dry face, scaly legs…the works. I just detest what the dry and cold weather do to my skin. Thankfully it seems like my skin rejuvenates when the weather moderates. Sometimes when it really gets to me and I start looking around for some high quality skin care products, [...]

There’s me and my wrinkles! Blech!
I was just looking at this website that is reviewing jan marini products. Wrinkle creams are so expensive…I cringe at the thought of spending a lot of money on something that is a low quality product.
When I do get to the point where I’m ready to plunk [...]

Poor Sarah…adolescence is not being kind to her skin. We are noticing a pattern that connects her diet with her skin so she is becoming very aware of what she eats and what she wants to avoid eating to have clearer skin. Sometimes she decides a break-out is worth it…and sometimes it isn’t. Such is [...]

I was perusing the internet the other day (no, not looking for benefits of colon cleansing…although there is plenty of that information out there to be had on the internet, too) just looking at what the current maternity styles are…I can hardly believe I’m dealing with this again. I know I got rid of [...]
