Happy Halloween!

So my very first post I gave you a you might be a Housewife if line...

Well here is a new one  for you.
If your husband asks where are you going? Why are you dressed up?

Well dear, I am not dressed up. I just have jeans and a shirt on. haha
I told him no where, it's Halloween, little kids will be coming by.
Then I realized, I don't actually get dressed most days. I wear pjs or a pull over dress.
So I see his point.

Happy Halloween!
Be safe tonight and wear something that glows.
Have a great night!

11 going on twenty

So our son is almost 11 going on 20 and he is learning the violin and is very crafty.
He's a little artist in his own right.
He has a craving to travel and learn new cultures.
I see do many great things he can do with his life.

Last night we had a discussion with him about drugs.
How he can have all he wants in life and be a successful person one day.
So long as he stays away from drugs.

Schools do inform your children of the dangers of drugs and alcohol but I think there's still things to talk about at home.
Some have drug abuse in their family and addictive tendencies that may affect more than one of your child's relatives, and I think that's vital knowledge they need to know and understand.

I wish all you parents out there the best of luck with your children and bright futures ahead for them!

Writing, an Outlet

Some of you may know this,
but when I write many times I sit and am not
exactly sure where it will go.

I may have a topic in mind,
but it comes from me.

I let my fingers do the work and just let
it flow.

I hear people say, I wish I could write.
Well, do.
sit down and see what comes out.
You may really be surprised.

Do you notice that at times there is a
lowercase i in my posts.
Its not really a typo.

My father wrote poetry.
He was not the best at grammar.
His i's were always lowercase.
I think it was out of not knowing.
But I like to leave mine sometimes as a tribute.

So writing can be anything you make it.
As long as you make it yours.

been around..

My Motto has been
Everything that happens
Happens for a Reason,
ever since I was 16 or 17.

That has really been a strong presence in my life.
There have been things I wish I could change.
Like my father dying.

There have been things I have tried to change.
Like empowering women.

There has also been things I can not change.
Like the women that no matter what I do I
can not reach.

I used to completely run from change,
I was afraid or unwilling to seek a newness.

I do remember that time. I do feel the negative aurora that
fear and stubbornness had placed there.

I did however learn in time to embrace change and accept new things.
Change brings greatness if you let it.

I feel a change coming. I do not know in what form, but I can feel
it peeking at me from behind the wall, as if it is watching the "little fat girl,"
just waiting to introduce it's self to her. Like a best friend waiting to be.

I know that I haven't blogged in a few weeks. I have had some topics for you.
Even have some typed up that I haven't posted.
It has been a crazy time here.
With school starting back, my son picking up a new hobby in the form of
learning the violin, and stuff going on with friends.

But my writing bone has been calling to me.
It it almost NaNoWriMo time again.
I failed last year, but i have been thinking of trying again.
Because what is life, if you never even try?
It's no life at all.
