Fathers: The Household Heroes – 6 Ways to Say Thank You

Fathers: The Household Heroes – 6 Ways to Say Thank You

No family is complete without a father. It is a common opinion that mothers are to have the most impact on the children’s life since they spend the most time with them. However, we forget that the role of a father is also important. A child needs the attention of both parents and both roles complement the actions of each other. Every year, on the third Sunday of June, the world celebrates Father’s Day. It is a day where we can honor the role of a father. Thousands around … Read more…


On Hiatus – Stay Informed

On Hiatus – Stay Informed

Hi folks. Short and sweet. Following my breathing issues, I slipped into a severe pain episode and have been there for some time. I haven’t been here in more than a year and have now relented to being admitted to the hospital to go through the heavy dose (it’s the only thing that will touch it when it gets this bad). This is for the pain in my head but there are a bunch of other things going on. I’m not making much sense. Crap. Wanted to keep … Read more…


Ray Harrington Brings Funny Back to Portland!

Ray Harrington Brings Funny Back to Portland!

Ray Harrington is funny. And not just because I know him personally. I barely do, actually. He was in a thing and my husband worked on that thing and then we went to the premiere of the thing and then there’s been some Facebook… ANYway. Ray Harrington is funny. And if you’ve never seen him do his thing on stage, you are missing out. Funny – I said. Engaging – just ask Scott. Endearing – go ahead and make it all about Finn for the next 17 years; … Read more…

Video: Week 6 Hair UPDate – Blending – 6-2-1.5!

Here we are with our week 6 hair update (the real week 6, I said) and we are blending today. YAY! I don’t want to give too much away before you watch the video but it’s a multi-guard experience, people. Whoa. Want more? See the whole series at Hair It Is… I had to. We (me and that mouse in my pocket) were starting to look a bit straggly. Yikes. So yes, Blending. With a #6, a #2, and a #1.5. And it is FABuLOUS. Of course. I … Read more…


Veterans Day – Honoring His Legacy

Veterans Day – Honoring His Legacy

In all the many times I’ve written about my father, I have never done so in this way. That I have chosen this week to share  with you this piece about my father, one of many fine American Veterans, I am once again honoring his legacy – in a way that even I don’t realize on a daily basis; even though I do think of him that often. Veterans Day – Honoring His Legacy My father was the best dad in the whole wide world. Fortunately for me, … Read more…


Video: Dear President Obama – An Open Letter

Please Note: The video below is LONG. I make no apologies, I tend to be wordy and often say what I mean and mean what I say, more than once. This message is meant for President Obama, but is also for all of us. For those of you who don’t wish to sit through the entire “letter”, you may fast forward to 12:35 and most likely feel like you didn’t miss a thing. You’re Welcome! 🙂 Getting to meet the President of the United States of America was … Read more…


Video: Week 3 – No Shave, Just Some Shout Outs!

Video: Week 3 – No Shave, Just Some Shout Outs!

No Shave Just Some Shout OutsI do sincerely hope there is no disappointment with this week 3 update. I probably should have told you, could have certainly told you – last week – that there would be no shave this week. But even without the shave, I’m giving shout outs and updating you on the growing out progress so far. Well worth the watch, I think. 😉 So. No shave, just some shout outs? Yah. Tis okay, though. I don’t want you to get bored with all of this. Either with the shaving nothing off when there is nothing to remove or with me just going on and on about whatever.

To that end, I promise to do my best to keep it interesting each week. If you could let me know if I start to suck in any one area OR if there’s anything you’d like to see or hear, that’d be swell, too. YAY! For now, let’s just see what’s happening in week 3, the update…

Week 3 – No Shave, Just Some Shout Outs!

Well now. That was fun. I am so thrilled by the response so far. And just incredibly blessed by the positivity flowing all around me. Thank you for that. I know I said it in the video but you have to know – it matters greatly to be supported in this way. I could thank you all year and it wouldn’t begin to express how grateful I am. You all ROCK!

Next week, I reckon there will be a bit more shaving, as my hair seems to be growing quite normally, so keeping it trimmed on the sides and back in essential for the current plan*. I’m still not inclined toward any sort of coloring; at any rate it’s still too short.

That’s about it for this week 3 update. Unless you have any fun and fab ideas for this head of mine; please feel free to share below.

~ Cheers

*current plan: as I’ve said, I have a plan for growing it out but am open to ideas. Hit me up with yours and maybe we’ll switch directions. At this point, anything goes, really. And I would love to hear what you have in mind. YAY! And remember, sharing is caring!


Do What You Can…

Do What You Can…

It’s funny. I had this post planned – the title, anyway – and then life happened. You know, that old saying, “…life happens when you are busy making plans…” (John Lennon). Do what you can…whenever, wherever, however – fits in perfectly today because that’s exactly what I’m doing. The flu has struck our house and we’ve managed to save one of us so far (he’s escaped to work) but Mags and I are down for the count; at least for today. Coupled with a rise in pain level … Read more…
