An Unmade Bed is a Healthy Bed

Make your bed before you start the day!  Yep, I was that mom.  There was just something about looking into Boy’s room and seeing the bed pulled together that made the rest of the chaos easier to accept.  Didn’t hurt that this was an important household issue, drilled into my youthful brain by The German. […]

Revisiting NoseFrida, aka the Snotsucker!

In April 2013, I wrote about an amazing baby product that Boy and Girl were using on Sweet E, a product that I never knew existed and one, to be brutally honest, that made me literally gag a little.  The NoseFrida. Why in the world would I revisit a product that had the power to […]

It Takes an Army, A Swiss Army

How many times have you been out shopping at T.J. Maxx, reach for a 50%-off the already 50%-reduced item and gaaa! a painful hangnail or a jagged nail. The horror! There’s nothing left to do but go on home and drink; your whole day has been ruined. DON’T BE A WIMP!  There are still amazing […]

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.

Heel Cup Tutorial: Dealing With Heel Pain

Y’all know I’m a lifelong runner.  I’m like Forrest Gump; once I started, I just kept going.  As I lifer, I’ve had injuries along the way, one of which was thought to be fat pad atrophy.  I know, I laughed too. ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon referral links. When you do your shopping […]

I can’t believe that we’re already up to nine posts on the subject of how Perimenopause Can Suck It. This series started innocently enough with Post #1 and here we are, eight more later.  Just so you know, it’s not over yet.  I still have a few more informative (horrifying?!) posts to bring you up […]

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 […]

It’s How I Roll

If you’ve read here for any length of time, you know that I have an ongoing tweaky back issue that I’m working hard to resolve. I use my foam roller, I do strengthening work, and because I sit for a large part of every day, I have started using my stability ball as a chair […]

Required Summer Reading: Secondary Drowning

I’ve written about drowning before and how the actual process of drowning doesn’t look like you might think it would (if you missed that important post, you can read it HERE).  Today, let’s take a look at secondary drowning. If you’re like most of the world, when it gets hot, you want to cool off […]
