Busy Busy

Wow, this week has been busy. Dentist appointment for Lil Man. He has 10 teeth. He didn't care much for the visit, but he liked the monitor of the fish swimming around.

Then there was the follow up Dr. appt for me.

Waiting with me at the Dr's Office 
Thankfully, Lil Man was cooperative during my Dr. visit. Dr. said I wasn't 100% well, but well enough that I could run and train for a marathon if I wanted to. 

I have made more cookies this week than I have in my entire life! I made some for Hubby to take to the office. Made some for the mail carrier. Made some for the paper delivery guy. And I made several dozen for us to munch on over the weekend. 

I have to say that the Mint Chocolate chip were pretty tasty! Yum. I'm enjoying them now, because once they are all gone, there won't be any more for awhile. 

But today so far has been productive. I made tons of cookies/brownie bites, then cleaned, worked on my freelance stuff while Lil Man napped. His speech teacher will be here soon. Once she leaves, I'm sure it will be more cleaning/picking up things, then cooking dinner, and then I will have to work some more on my freelance work once Hubby gets home. Oh yeah, and I have more laundry to do. 

Good thing I just bought another massage off of +LivingSocial, I'm going to need it.

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss
