Roasted Dandelion Root Tea

Do you like to drink tea?  I love it!  There’s nothing more cozy as having a cup of hot tea on a cold winter day.  We are getting a winter blizzard here in Michigan so I’ve already had two big cups of tea today.  I had one cup cold to start my day and another hot, a little bit ago, to warm me up.

Life with Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder

It all came crashing down on March 12, 1998.  My ex-fiance and I had a horrible, nightmarish fight and broke off our engagement.  It was two months and four days before we were supposed to say, “I do.”  It was one of the worst days of my life.  I felt like I was in a black hole and that I would never get out.  I tried to take my life that night.  I had no idea how I would ever feel better.  Ever.  I was so ashamed, embarrassed, felt like such huge failure and had no idea what to do.  I felt so alone.

Free Yourself from Stuff!

For the past few months, I have been using Marie Kondo’s tidying method, called Kon Mari, to go through and clean out the extra stuff in our home.  It has been an incredible experience so far and very liberating!  I had heard about this method of cleaning about a year ago.  I tucked it way in the back forty of my brain and low and behold, forgot about it!  LOL!  You ever do that?  Me?  All.the.time!!

As a Stay at Home (and now Homeschooling) Mom, I Needed More

As moms, we have a lot on our plates and often forget about ourselves. Before I got married and had children, I was a busy and successful career woman. Once we got married, I still worked and then when I got pregnant with our daughter, I was put on bed rest at 7 1/2 months. My husband and I were in agreement that once we had kids, I would stay at home with them.

Cannabidiol

Have you heard of cannabidiol, or CBD, yet?  If not, I’m sure you will sooner than later.  According to Project CBD, “Cannabidiol is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for patients looking for relief from inflammationpainanxietypsychosisseizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.

Naturally Curly Hair

Do you have naturally curly hair?  Do you love it?  Hate it?  Have a love-hate relationship with it?  I know this last one is the way I feel about my naturally curly hair.  Some days, my hair turns out great and others, not so much.  It’s the nature of the beast and that beast is  hard to tame!  The pic below is from a day that my hair turned out well except for a funky part on top.  That piece got clipped back! LOL!

Homeschool Curriculum We Are Using for 2016 – 2017

Trying to figure out what curriculum to use for your homeschooler(s) can be such a huge challenge.  It can feel very overwhelming knowing that you are in charge of choosing your child’s books, online courses, etc.  One thing that has helped me a ton is talking to other moms who have been homeschooling for a while and have some experience with choosing curriculum.

Spending Time with Positive People

A few years ago, I started to realize that some of the people I was spending my time with were not the healthiest for me.  I am the kind of person who makes friends very easily and since I have lived in a lot of different cities and states, I have made a lot of friends.  Every place I have ever lived, I have made some life-long friends and some that God just meant for me to have for a short while.
