Thank You, Teenagers (This is not a paid advertisement.)

So far this November, I’m thankful that Facebook (at least on my newsfeed) hasn’t been deluged with that tiresome habit of people posting one new thing every day that they are thankful for. My eyes were sore from rolling them last year. I finally stopped reading when I saw, “I’m thankful for the love...

DIY All Natural Sore Throat and Cough Soothing Syrup

Nov 21, 2014

Hybrid Rasta Mama

Cold and flu season is in full swing and that brings sore throats and coughs of all kinds. I don’t know about you, but I become a big ol’ baby when I have a sore throat. Aside from intestinal illnesses, there is nothing that sidelines me more than a sore...

Epilepsy Awareness Month Day 20: Memories

Epilepsy Awareness Month Day 20: Memories

One impact epilepsy has had on Robert is on his memory.  I don’t quite understand why he has memory problems (which have definitely increased as time goes by) but I am positive it has to do with his overall decline from epilepsy, his brain surgeries, medications, head trauma and uncontrolled seizures.

Perfect Gifts for a “Little House” Fan

“Once upon a time, sixty years ago, a little girl lived in the Big Woods of Wisconsin, in a little gray house made of logs.” I opened that first book, Little House in the Big Woods, when I was 8 years old and instantly fell in love. The stories of...

the easiest pre Thanksgiving meal to prepare!

the easiest pre Thanksgiving meal to prepare!

This past Sunday, we had an early “Thanksgiving” celebration with friends thanks to our friends at Raley’s. We got to sample their Holiday Dinner selections a bit before the actual holidays, and let me just share that they were fabulous! A few years back, we discovered the brilliance of the “prepared” holiday meal… and...

Epilepsy Awareness Month Day 19: The Careful Dance of Sickness

Epilepsy Awareness Month Day 19:  The Careful Dance of Sickness

Despite my best efforts to keep Robert from getting my cold (which I got from Richard, by the way), Robert got sick.  He was congested for a few days then it hit in full force and last night Robert was wheezing and shivering which usually means a temperature is about to break out and...

This Cranberry Gingerbread Is A Must Bake This Holiday Season

Nov 19, 2014

Hybrid Rasta Mama

Show of hands. Who here has tried cranberry and gingerbread rolled into one delicious somewhat sweet, somewhat spicy, somewhat tart treat? Oh, you haven’t? Well then…let’s change that right now! This creation was completely accidental. My daughter was helping me in the kitchen and spices just started flowing into the...

These Moms, They Don’t Know Me

I don’t recognize any of the faces at pick-up. It’s been two years since kindergarten, and I stand in the hallway like the nanny in our small town of well-dressed, Volvo-driving mommies. They chat like old friends, tossing the occasional glance my way. I know there are checking me out, wondering which kid I...

Epilepsy Awareness Month 2014 Day 18:  Caregiving as a Team

Richard and I have been together for 18 years and raised three kids together (two his, one mine, although we just call this “family”). Even though we have different parenting styles (mine is better, of course, if only because I am the one writing this), we managed to get the kids to adulthood with...

Ironic Reactions and Ravioli Season

I’ve noticed lately that when I read certain stories in the news, my first reaction isn’t always…typical. In fact, I guess it could be called ironic. Like, for instance, the other day I read a story about a dad who kidnapped his 9-year old son in Seattle instead of returning him to his ex-wife,...
