I’m Back – I Think – Life is Hard and then you Die.

My blog has been the target of multiple issues, attacks and locked down for months. I finally figured out how to use it again! Hurray! It is an outlet for me. I need to write. I need to do weird giveaways, review movies and books and generally engage in life in a different way. I try to keep this blog positive, but I am struggling to find the positive in my life or to be a positive type of person. I have also been really sick all year. If I don’t have bronchitis, it is something else. In May I had a routine (for me) procedure on my neck that resulted in severe migraines, and unbearable pain. I tried everything, my doctors tried everything, and I ended up in the hospital for four days. The first night I was admitted I fell in the bathroom. I hit my head and...

Captain America – Civil War or Iron Man is a Jerk

I took my son to the preview of Captain America – Civil War. He was so excited he was bouncing in his seat, and I couldn’t get him to stop until the movie started. He is 11 now, but he has watched superhero movies his whole life and loves them. We got to preview the movie in return for our honest review. This movie is PG-13 and earns that rating due to violent action scenes and mature themes. We have made the decision that when it comes to our child such movies are okay as long as they are set in a fictional world, and we always preview or watch the movies with him to make sure he understands what he saw and can put any scary or difficult situations in perspective. As there will be countless other children who see this film, I want other parents to understand that...

I failed

So, I am having a panic attack. It is just one in many that I have had over the years, and this last week. I couldn’t go to an autism Lego event because I was panicking. Stupid, but true. I love events like that with my son. I love talking to other mom’s, sharing experiences, and playing with the kids. Anxiety sucks!  I was supposed to write about Inside Out, but cannot write it. I have a health blog I am afraid to get wrong. I think nobody will read this or anything else I have to write because, well anxiety. I am not the mother I want to be due to chronic illness, and cannot accept it. I am a horrible housekeeper, in fact, my husband does almost all of it, and makes the meals. I am not the best writer. I am sick I sleep too much I...

He and his father both wanted to go, but in the end he won, because Dad...

Young Living Essential Oils – Healing the impossible.

Disclaimer: This is my blog and all opinions in it are mine. I am a distributor with Young Living, but unless you buy from me, I get no financial or other gain from this post. These are not the views of anyone but myself, and should be used as such. I just came back from Young Living’s 20th Anniversary Convention. I have many medical conditions, and was actually forced to come home early because I reacted to medications that doctor’s were trying on me. I did get to meet the people involved in Young Living. I learned where and how the oils are made, the stringent testing required and a lot of other wonderful and amazing things. Top of my list are they have some NEW oil blends for people with PTSD, Depression and Autism, and I can’t wait to share and use them. Because of my medical conditions, I...

Our parties have had to be canceled, and even ideas of going from person to person celebrating in little moments have fallen through as my son broke his arm, and I got bronchitis, again. I will eventually use the party supplies and...

Blackmoore – A Review

Disclosure:  News Wahl received one or more of the products mentioned in the post below free for evaluation purposes, received compensation, and/or is an affiliate of one or more of the products, links and banners you will see on this site. Regardless, all opinions expressed are still 100% genuine. This is disclosed in accordance with the FTC 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides concerning the use of endorsements and testimonials in advertising. Thanks for reading  Natalie.     My Review Blackmoore is a heartwarming classic that I enjoyed immensely. I laughed and cried as Kate made the transition from girlhood into womanhood, and adored the romance and love story. This book is everything I would expect from a period novel and more. I especially appreciate the true nature of love as described in the characters relationship. It is refreshing when most love stories follow a given pattern and are utterly unreal...

Bored to Tears

This week has been hard. I am trying to start a new career as a health coach. I just graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and received my license, except, I got sick. My son gave me a sinus infection and pink eye. Then he got to go to a Lego camp with Dad while I slept all day for most of the week and recovered. Sometimes I hate that my body won’t keep up with my will. Me home alone and sick and sleeping a lot equals depression, which is not something I want to admit to, much less write about, but there it is. I get depressed. I am lonely and I feel really useless. It doesn’t help that my son comments on how I am “finally useful” when I manage to cut up the watermelon for them, or when they come home and nothing has changed....

Bringing In Summer Giveaway Hop

Congratulations – Jamie Leigh Martin, you have won the giveaway! This giveaway is hosted by Karma Media – http://www.karmamediateam.com I sold Mary Kay for several years until health issues made it difficult for me to keep up with appointments and other commitments. I have the mineral colors, foundations and bronzers left from those days, and love them. I also have more than I can use. Most of my palettes are for fairer skin, as that was my primary customer base. I would like to offer my readers a chance to try these great products. I will customize a compact with either a blush, eye color set, or bronzer for one lucky reader. Mary Kay has been sold for years, and has a great reputation. I started using their products because I have sensitive, acne prone skin. Their anti-acne face wash and other products worked wonders, and I adore their powdered mineral foundation....

Other Movies I want to see :)

I love movies. My husband and son love movies. We have to subscribe to Netflix so we don’t buy every film that comes out on DVD or Blu-Ray. So when Disney, Pixar and others come out with a family friendly movie, we count days until we either get to go to the theater, or can buy or rent the film. We also liberally use our local library to watch our favorites over and over. I can honestly say I’ve seen all the Ben 10 cartoon series at least 10 times, and I don’t watch a lot of t.v. like that. It is just one of my son’s favorites, so I got to watch it a lot with him. When I am sick and tired he gets movie time, and I am sick an tired a lot. Not my favorite parenting method, but we all do what we can. So Madagascar...
