I went to see psychic John Edward last night.  He is a very interesting and engaging speaker, and probably very similar in his non-public persona as well, just guessing.  Anyway, he spoke about his psychic process, energy, and a lot about signs and reminders from the Universe.  He reminded us that putting out negative energy usually attracts more negativity in return.  He talked about how your personal energy is part of a larger consciousness.  It reminded me of this chant that has the words, "with the power of 3 times 3" and how I try and live by the rule of whatever you do comes back on you threefold.   It was an expensive trip, but well worth it.  I enjoyed quality time with one of my favorite people in the world.  And even though I didn't get a personal reading from John, he was a conduit to me from the Universe and I got the message loud and clear.  For a long time, I've lived by the rule that the only person I can change is myself.  It has proved me well since the break up of my first marriage 12 years ago.

You have the power to control how you feel and think about anything.  You have the power, you can share it, embrace it and hopefully not squander it.  I feel very reflective about what I saw last night.  It will stay with me.  I hope that by writing about it, I can look back and see this when I need it.  I am the only person in control of me.  I don't control anything but me.  I am OK with that.

One of the most painful things in the world is watching your child get bullied.  Needless to say, I didn't stand for it.  In these modern times though, I cannot discipline other people's children, so instead, my child had to suffer.  He had to suffer because I had to take him out of the situation where he was being treated cruelly, and he thought that it was because I was being mean to him, and really it was the other way around.  I can only hope that I can teach him how to always handle himself with grace, respect and dignity.

Daycation? Yes, please!

Taming the wild beast.

How domestic am I? I use an online calendar and shopping list to plan out my weekly shopping trips and dinner every night....and it is working!  I always have kid-friendly snacks in the house and they are mostly healthy foods.  I steam mop my floors, use my bread machine and crockpot, I compost, recycle, pack lunches, make all my baked goods from scratch and I produce my own Christmas cards each December.  I don't know how or when any of this happened.

On another note, I recently drank myself silly and passed out on my husband's shoulder by 10:30 PM at a bar.  I went there to see some bands and run into some friends, I don't really remember much.  I'm pretty sure I know what led up to that.

OK, I'm addicted to polyvore.  What is the point of this site? I guess there is a lot of purposes but for me, it is for fun.  I posted some of what I'm calling my greatest hits below.  It is just an experiment really, to see if I could link the 2 sites.  Now I will decide if they should be linked.
