Passing The Remote

My husband has waited four years to be able to sit with the little man and watch sports. When our son was two, he would sit for about 10 seconds, then move on to something else. Hubs would look at me, defeated and nervous that we had brought a man into this world that may not like sports. I assured him that the day would come when they could sit together and marvel at the wonders of Tiger's swing, Brady's arm and Kobe's jumpshot.

That day has finally come and as they watched Monday Night Football together last night, I could see the pride in hub's face. The little man wanted to pull for the "red team" because that's his current favorite color, and I convinced him that Tom Brady was all that (because he is). The two sat in the chair closest to the TV, locked in a football trance, while hubs explained the game of football.

And so, the little guy that never wanted to leave his mommie's side has begun his transition to manhood. Afternoons are now filled with football toss and soccer and evenings are filled with ESPN and The Golf Channel.


The remote has been passed.

P.S: I also realize that this may end my quest for creating a TarHeel, but I will continue to fight that blue devil down the road and the influence he has over hubs and my son.

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from.


moo.com has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards. Cathe at Just Something I Madeposted some great examples of blog cards she's used in the past to promote her blog -

Let me know if you need a design and I can put something together for you!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
