Slow Cooker Chili

Throw In The Ingredients and Go

by: Sharon DeVellis

I try to plan meals.  Not always successfully but for the most part we have a flow to our week that makes mealtime making easier. 

Monday I went grocery shopping with the boys after school. Not the best of scenarios because they're both tired and grumpy but sometimes a girl's just gotta do what a girl's gotta do.  List in hand, I was prepared to go all Jersey Shore cast member having a one night stand and get in and out as quickly as possible. There would be no deviating from the list this week.

When Little Boys Get Blisters

These Things Are Never As Simple As They Seem

by: Sharon DeVellis

Son No. 2 got a blister and god forbid it's as simple as putting on a band-aid and being done with it.  Also, my patience only lasts so long.

Honey, how did you get that blister? Does it hurt?

Don’t touch it mummmmmmmmmmmmy!

I’m just going to look sweetie pie, I promise I won’t touch it.


Honey, I need to put a band-aid on it so it doesn’t get worse.

It's Okay To Say No

Seriously. The World Won't Blow Up Or Anything

by: Sharon DeVellis

While at Blissdom Canada last week I had an 'aha' moment. It didn't come from a session or a panel or a key note speaker, it came from a dinner date.

I don't sleep well in hotels. It's a curse.  I get a night or two to myself in a big bed with fluffy pillows and a heavy, warm duvet and I'm up looking at the clock every hour.

1:31 a.m.
2:19 a.m.
3:42 a.m.

It sucks.
