Making Your Cookies Last

You have a hankering for a cookie, go in to make a batch and end up with 3-4 dozen. One of two things happens: you either waste some because you have too many, or more often than not eat WAY too many because they are there to tempt you at every turn. I started doing this with my cookie dough a few years back and thought, why the heck didn't I think of this 20 years ago!

This Is NOT Easy!

I love being a mom. I have loved every stage of my mothering adventure. Each stage has been a blessing and a joy. Cuddling with a sleeping baby, the excitement of the first steps, craft time with the grade schooler - I actually even loved the teen years and really connected with my kids on a deeper level during that time. One of the things I loved the most as my children grew up was watching them interact with each other, and seeing the amazing bond that they had: my kids have always been incredibly close. But, this adult thing has been a huge challenge fore me!

Men Are Dirt Blind

I'm not sure what is wrong with the male eye, but it doesn't work as well as the female eye. The problem is either in the eye, or in the connective/computing tissue between the eye and the brain. It's a strange phenomenon, but men don't see dirt. It can be right there in front of them, staring them straight in the face, and they either don't see it or just cannot compute that it's there.

Here is an example to back up my theory.
