Happy Holidays!

Please remember those with less in this time
when we want more.  
I just want to wish all of my YCMs and YCFs a Merry Christmas and I hope that you and yours enjoyed your day.

Where in the hell was Santa?

Yesterday I went out with MIB and my aunt and other cousins to visit and take pictures of Santa at Walgreen's; but Santa wasn't there and I am still trying to find him.

Family Friday - Cardboard Gingerbread House

Do you see the attack of the killer snow?
I REFUSE to go out in that unless necessary.
Notice the leaning trees from the wind...
Baby, it's snowing outside and it's too cold to do anything out there or to go anywhere after sunset.

Something I've been lacking on a daily basis is...

Energy at work.  I am always tired, sluggish, and just not wanting to be there lol.  But I've been doing some things lately that have been helping me out.

How do we protect our kids with words from home?

It's top news this morning, the Connecticut elementary school massacre that claimed the lives of 27 people, 18 (eighteen!) of them young children.

Depending on who I'm around...

For the most part who I am at home is who I am at work...until I have to deal with people who make 5 times as much as me.

His Misery is My Happiness

I am going to take a break from NaBloPoMo to talk about something that has been tearing at me for a while and I've finally allowed myself to let it go.

My 100th Post

Today's NaBloPoMo prompt is: If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?

Working from home and MIB help

This weekend I had to do a few hours of work from home.  I hated to do it but it had to be done.  MIB hates it when I have to work but I've figured out how to get her involved.

Lazy Saturdays and Light Shows

Today was a lazy day...I said to myself on Friday that I was going to sleep "all the way in," and I did.

Nadia G and "It's Christmas Time"

Anyone who knows me knows that I love cooking shows and one of my favorite shows is on the Cooking channel (not to be confused with Food Network).

By myself

After a long day at work dealing with crazy gossipy coworkers, bratty customers, and insanity all around...the best way for me to relax is to be by myself.

YCM Events

Hey all, as we continue in NaBloPoMo's theme of "work" for December, I want to introduce a new page on my blog that will involve a little bit of work.  I want to start showcasing events that occur in southeastern Wisconsin (Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha, Wauwatosa, Waukesha, Glendale, Brookfield, Shorewood, and other surrounding areas) and the Chicago and surrounding area that are about kids, family, and YCMs (and YCFs too :).

After I get off of work, I usually don't do as much as I'd like with MIB because of several things: no energy, no time, no money, or no idea.  Since I have this issue, I'd imagine that other YCM/YCFs have the same problems and would like to go to a site to get information on local (and semi-local) events that cater to our kids, our family, and ourselves. 

The events that I'd like to showcase on a daily/weekly basis are not just about story time, arts and crafts, or the zoo.  I hope that folks offer up ideas for cultural shows, book clubs, martini nights, or even brunch.  Because YCM/YCFs need play time just as much as MIBs.  

So here is my criteria for YCMs Events:

  1. I need notification of said event at LEAST two days in advance. 
  2. Information about said event should include: dates, time, address, website, age range, if it is for adults, children, or both, phone number, contact person, cost, and any other special information about said event
  3. Events can be from ANYONE: clubs, restaurants, libraries, art museums, whatever.  
  4. Please do not send any sexually explicit material or events to be featured in the YCM Events page. 
  5. When sending the request, please place all information in the body of the email and not in an attachment.  Only text (for now) will be used to promote YCM events.  HTML and other specialized event promos will come in the future. 
  6. Oh...and the requests and posts are FREE.  Yeah...I said it: FREE.
If you are a business or non-profit (especially non-profits...my first job was at a non-profit when I was 14 and I have a soft spot for them) please submit all events with the information mentioned above here.  You will receive a confirmation email within 24 hours of submission.  All events will be posted at least one day before the event and taken down the day after the event is over.  Events that are extended or have multiple dates (like every Saturday in the month of December) will remain until the day after the last day of the event. Any questions please email me here.

Thanks and I look forward to seeing all of the events going on in our community!

If you have any YCM questions for me and Thursday's Thoughts...please submit them here!

I need to vent...

Since this month's NaBloPoMo is all about work, this is the perfect way for me to vent about the nonsense that has been going on at my job.

It's been 13 years since you've been gone...

Hair time...

Today is hair wash day...I should've done it yesterday, but it got late, I got tired, and this is a process.
