I Meant For This to Go Differently

I’m an organizer; I love it.  Nothing better than a good list and solid plan to follow in order to get things done.  Make the list.  Do the list. Throw away checked-off completed list.  Make new list. What follows contradicts everything I just said.  In my busy gal defense, it happens.  Not often, but when […]

October: Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

October is Adopt A Shelter Dog month!  Yep, these sweet babies get an entire month of love and why not?  They need us; we need them.  Get to adopting! Every single dog we have brought into our home has been a shelter baby, or a foster, as in Dexter’s case. Dexter, oh our sweet Dexter. […]

Depression Facts and Stats

October is National Depression Awareness Month. Even though I’ve written about depression before, I thought I’d take a moment to talk about it again. FACTS: 1)  Most people who are depressed, about two-thirds, do not seek treatment. 2) Women are TWICE as likely to suffer from depression as men. 3) Exercise can alleviate depression and […]

The Easiest Inexpensive Face Cleansing Method: One Year Later

Last summer, I wrote about The Easiest Face Cleansing Method…Ever and I wanted to come back after a year’s time to let you know if I gave it up or if I’m still a convert. Still a convert, my babies.  Even more so if that’s possible. This is a staple in the shower (to be […]

Why are Women Still Hating Based on a Number?

Back in 2013, I wrote You Are More Than A Number. Cliff Notes: what the hell are we doing letting a number define us, instruct our behavior or allowing us to diminish or expand our feelings of self-worth? WHAT. THE. HELL. Yep, 2014.  I just looked. The funny thing is that almost a year later […]

Is Your Steak Done?

Father’s Day seems like yesterday and while I offered a few fun thangs for dear old dad, I hadn’t come across this WHAT-WHAT?! gadget yet, so I’m telling you about it now. ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links. When you do your shopping through the Amazon links on this page, you support […]

U.S. Flag Primer

I have written on this subject before, but I thought it important enough to offer a flag primer once again.  Kinda like getting a yearly checkup with your doc; it’s always nice to be educated on the important stuff. Coincidentally, I’ve seen a growing number of confused facebook posts regarding the proper/improper way to fly […]

May Is Melanoma Awareness Month

As a melanoma survivor,  I feel a strong responsibility to share this post every year.  It’s important information that can save your life.

A foam roller is essential for anyone with muscle pains, aches, and injuries.  It’s also essential to prevent injuries (OMT likes this one!). BONUS: It’s easy!  You basically […]
