I have been thinking it over and considering all my obligations and I am afraid this blog will have to go to the waistside.  I just don’t have the time for this blog…I feel I am busy enough with the 6 other blogs, blogging gigs, 4 kids, 1 hubby, and a partritge in a pear tree.  Maybe someday in the future, I can commit the time and research this blog needs.  For now, I just can’t.  Sorry.

But I do have 6 other blogs if you want something fantastic to browse:

Kerith’s Korner of Momdum

The Momdum Chronicles

Freelancing, My Road Less Traveled

Artsy Fartsy Fantastics

Kids With A Side Of Twins

Chunky Yet Funky

The “Greenest” Make-up in the Land
December 3, 2007, 9:02 pm

This is the coolest.  I found this “green” make-up.  Well, the packaging is green.

The boxes are so cool.  Not only are they made of recycled materials, but they are embedded with seeds.  So when you are about ready to throw away the box…STOP!  You can plant it and watch it grow.

The first one is Pangea Organics Malagasy Ylang Ylang & Linden Flower Facial Cream.  It is only $29 and the box becomes Italian Basil.

The other one is Cargo’s PlantLove lipstick in Sagarmatha.  This one is only $20 and it sprouts wildflowers.  I just think this is such a great way to take the pain out of the packaging.  You can’t beat wildflowers from a box.

Family Fun Time

If any of you are fans of my other blog Kerith’s Korner of Momdum, you may have noticed the Family Fun Friday as disappeared. It is still around but I had a brain storm about it. Then we kept getting sick and it kind of took a back seat.

I have so much fun doing the activities with my kids that I thought that maybe I would try to start a Meme about having Family Fun Time with stuff found on the internet.

There is so much on the internet, that most of the time, a person doesn’t really know where to go for kid friendly and fun stuff. So every week or 2 I am going to give out Family Fun Time assignments, so to speak, on Kerith’s Korner of Momdum. I will give a few web sites concerneing the subject matter at hand. Then we all will go and do our Family Fun Time. Then you can E-Mail ( with your story and pictures and links to your blog. I will post them and then give out another great assignment.

Feel free to take any banners I post. I will make more later and post them.

Our first Family Fun Time is Holly Hobbie. You can click here or go anywhere on the web and find family fun stuff concerning Holly Hobbie. Maybe you want to make paper dolls and play with them with your kids. Maybe you want to buy a Holly Hobbie movie and watch it with your kids. Maybe you want to make a day of Holly Hobbie with your kids. What ever you want to do….have fun with it.

Going Green: What Does It Mean To You?
November 20, 2007, 8:20 pm
Filed under: Going Green Choices | Tags: , , , , ,

I was asking the hubby what Going Green meant to him.  Here are some of his answers:

  • Using only renewable resources
  • Recycling is not going green–only a different form of pollution
  • No cars…walking, riding bikes–not even hybrid

I think Going Green is the choices a person makes. 

  • New home-older home-dome home-shipping container home
  • Wooden floor from trees from rain forest or cork floor
  • SUV or Aveo
  • Hybrid SUV that gets 35 miles per gallon or diseil volvo that gets 50 miles per gallon
  • Composting or no composting
  • Even recycling is a choice…but that is a post for later

Going Green means alot of different things…and my family and I are trying to Go Green one choice at a time!
