Wow..Whew...Where do I begin?
I feel like I was chugging along in the blogiverse and fell into a hole, much like Alice did in Alice In Wonderland. Boy, did I meet a host a characters just as she did too! I guess I will save that for future posts because I have learned so much in the past six months or so that I have been held hostage by life's little pitfalls. One Aha Moment after another and it would not be right not to share the blessings with all of you.
I just hope all of you are still with me, or at least when you see me post again, you will right back on this Happy Train.
One thing I did realize with doing this blog was that I was trying too hard to make it perfect and in doing that, I got so overwhelmed that I often didn't post if I felt it wasn't an earth shattering post...That won't happen anymore. I made the mistake of believing that if I didn't have anything to give away then nobody would read. Well, what kind of friendship does that make? So, in the future, I will post anything and everything that I want to share. After all, if you don't want to read it, then just click the X, and come back with the next one.
However, I did alot of internet traveling and have found more hot spot for freebies, coupons, deals and more- you just never know what you will find here.
I think I have gotten more comfortable with this "empty-nest syndrome" and now I fully understand why it's called as such (yes, that will be another post). Suffice it to say, it does take some adaptation...not just running around naked and having "nooners" whenever one wants (although, that does now fit into the equation *wink*). I now feel like I know what I am doing, working toward and finally, FINALLY learned that to love someone fully and help in their growth, you need to let go sometimes...My friends, that is THE hardest part of parenting for me.
So...without boring you to tears with this post, I will end here.
Looking forward to hearing from all of you again, and wow, the giveaways...much in the hopper, so do stay tuned!
Once again, thank you for sticking with me.
Great friends can always just pick up where they left off and not even miss a beat!

I love September!
By far, it is the busiest of all months for me, but it also brings with it, the energy needed for all the upcoming "little whirlwinds".
I got to open all the windows the other day and it was wonderful!
Last night, I could already smell bonfires in the air...ahhh, Fall:-)
September is busy on the National Calendar as well.
Here is just a taste, but these things will be mentioned on here, coming up. Many things are in store for this month.
National Menopause Awareness Month- I was blessed with the opportunity to review a book by Staness Jonekos; just wait to see what that's all about and the generous giveaway that will be happening with that!
There will also be other things...links, freebies, and information that is so important and helpful for this time of transition.
National Chicken Month -all month there will be chicken everything. Facts, recipes, freebies and links, links links!
National Cholestrol Education Month lots of stuff about this. Something that we really don't think about...until the doctor says we need to. So, I have gathered links, references and info.
National Literacy Month- can you imagine just for a second what it would be like not to be able to read? I can't. Reading is an escape for me. I can go to any place in the world that I want to...and that is by picking up a book. Some people cannot even write their name, or read...anything. We will explore some of that this month. Reading IS Fundamental.
National Sewing Month can you My mom can sew anything...absolutely anything. Me?? Haha. We won't go there. Let's just say that after I took my sewing machine to a class and tried SO hard to sew a jumper for my daughter, the teacher politely told me that, "Perhaps sewing just isn't your thing, dear". I gathered all my pieces of my now completely sewn inside-out, pockets upside down jumper (hey, it WAS unique, right?) not saying a word, not shedding a tear...until I got into my car. I went home, put my sewing machine in the closet and that is where it stayed. OK, so I can do other things. The apple fell into another stratosphere on that one!
Lots of goodies for this...hang on
and... National Chocolate Milk Day which is September 27 (hubby will LOVE that).
Then...oh, do I have the reviews/giveaways!
New scents- candles, bath potions, lotions and massage bars.
New things for the house- *whisper* Tupperware is not like what it used to be.
Food products galore. and did I mention bling?
I am giggling as I type this...so much for all of you is coming...and fun for me- I LOVE this!
I also have lots of places to sign up for surveys, if interested, as well as other things I have found in my days of exile in the bed room air conditioning days. I don't about you, but these days I am looking for ways to add to that bottom line. Christmas will be here before we know it...and every little $1 helps!
So...make sure you have this place bookmarked! I know you already have subscribed, right? If not, then there is a place for you to do so, and of course, follow me on twitter and facebook- it will all be there too!
Let the fun begin!

This has been a summer of discovery for me. The blog name I have reflects just that, as I am "reinventing myself", and learning about myself all over again after raising my daughter.
In my quest to make this blog perfect, which is something that will never happen with a blog, I have often always looked for a better way and then instead, ended up not posting at all.
I mean, I was thinking, who really wants to hear about my life?
As I have found...many do!
Some fly through the empty-nest stage. Myself, I am stumbling along asking "where do I belong now". Some days I just don't feel, well, needed, I guess is the best word...not like before. We live in a VERY small town and that has alot to do with it. Take note, if you plan on emptying the nest, maybe you should do it somewhere that you can DO things. I would love to take classes, but other than online, there is nothing for me. I am learning though, what I do want to do and pursue.
I also learned about friendships. I have made some of the most meaningful friendships via Facebook. It took me quite awhile to jump on the bandwagon, but now that I have, I am so very happy to have "met" people that I have otherwise wouldn't have.
I have also learned that sometimes, we have to let go of the toxic ones. The ones that leave us so drained that we wonder why we have these people in our lives to begin with. It is getting easier to spot now, and easier to let go after seeing the devastation it can bring to myself and others.
So, that that being said...I am saying goodbye to the summer of discovery. This past summer I have started a dream journal, gotten back in touch with my spirituality and even gotten into reading more. I am learning that "technical" stuff isn't as scary as I thought and now I am addicted to crossword puzzles. Even though I couldn't do the things I wanted to outside...we went fishing twice, garden dried up, and we lived in a cave, with the curtains all drawn- all was not lost.
I also say goodbye to the hot, hot summer. As mentioned in my other post, here in Wisconsin, I didn't expect this...at all.
I am grateful, VERY grateful that we had that because the nights would have been unbearable.
Now, as the cool night breeze is wafting through my office window and I can blog again...I feel *home*...sigh....good to be back.
September is National Menopause Month, and many great things are planned. I am really jazzed about it. All this time has given me time to research many things, authors, doctors, natural medicines and wow, so much more!
I have some great ideas for this blog now, whereas before I felt like I was wandering blind. I want this to be as individual as I am and not a copy of someone else's work.
I am going to be taking some classes online and will share what I learn on here as well as making and creating some things that I have IN my mind.
So, bring on September. I am more than ready to dive in.
Moms are getting their kids ready to back to school, silently thanking God that they will be getting some peace & quiet back. Kids are anticipating so much...what friends they will be making, what boys will be new to the school and what fads will be "in".
Stay tuned! It's going to be a rockin' month!
