Have you ever adjusted the temperature on your water heater? If not, it’s probably set to 140 degrees, which is the default setting from most manufacturers.
.
Try turning it down to 120. You’ll not only reduce the risk of scalding, but you can save 10% of the energy you use just by making this one small change.
.
There should be a thermostat dial near the bottom of your water heater or a digital readout on a tankless water heater.

When it’s 6:33AM and your 8 year old asks you how smart frogs are😳
Que inteligente es una rana?
It’s 6:33AM, I have no clue how smart frogs are.
Enter Google. Thank you Google!
Do you know how to save the day or what?
It’s too early for these questions.
Follow up questions by this same 8 year old to his 12 year old sister:
“V, what do you call it when you buy something from a back alley, from a stranger? Is it the black market?”
What’s happening in my household?
Thanks We Bare Bears 😳 These morning questions require I have some coffee ASAP.

I’m finished with you, SUGAR.
But it doesn’t mean I don’t love you. 
I just can’t be around you.
Let’s take a break.

Do you like old photos? I’m slightly obsessed to be honest! Particularly love looking through the mountains of old family photos when I’m having a hard day. One of those days I came across this photo and it made me literally #lol This is a photo of my maternal grandmother and her brother in 1937. I cannot wait to find the perfect frame and spot in my house to display it!

There’s just something so special about a clean kitchen with minimal items on the countertops. It makes my heart so happy!

Isn’t this so sweet. Just a tender moment in between contractions 🥰 I’ve been redoing and updating my website and going through pictures is making me all gooey inside!

Today has come. The day I turn 40. I don’t feel different, but I am beyond grateful that I have had the opportunity live these 40 years and hope to live another 70 more....so please don’t call me middle aged because I have no plans of leaving until I am way older than 80. 
Thankful for my hubs and friends who “surprised” me with a great lunch celebration.
And like my shirt says, I’ve think I’ve nailed my first 40 years. #40thbirthday #notmiddleaged #cricutcreated #cricutcreatedshirt #dutchesscounty #ny #februarybirthday #14igchallenge

If the mind is overthinking, overanalyzing, or just plain worrying how do you think the body is going to react?
.
The body will become tense because the mind is tense.
.
Being able to relax the mind can help you relax the body and vice versa.
.
This week I’m going to be giving you some skills on relaxation that will help you both before and DURING your performance!
.
It will also help with mental barriers such as fear of injury, burnout, failing under pressure, anxiety, overthinking, and poor concentration and focus.

“Alaska Scene”⁣
—Fossilized Walrus Jawbone⁣
⁣
⁣
I like to post multiple pictures showing different parts of each scene I carve.  I do this because I don’t want any of the little details to get left out. ⁣
⁣
And this little feather dancer is a pretty special detail.  The face and feathers are carved from fossilized walrus ivory—a rare and precious commodity.

Are you enjoying your Presidents’ Day? .
My kids had school, but we had some visitors and their kids had a blast building snow caves in our path banks and a sledding track from our plow piles. .
It’s so fun to have friends come visit!!

How do you teach your kids to have a positive body image? This is something that I have always tried so hard to do even during my own disordered days. I didn’t want my kids to ever feel the same way I did because the world is sending them a very different message daily.

Here are a few things that I have learned and implemented while trying to raise body positive children. I also expand more on this in my ebook.

1. Teach them that bodies come in all shapes and sizes. All bodies are good bodies. Celebrate body diversity. Consume media that showcases all types of bodies.

2. Expand your compliments to others. Make sure your compliments aren’t appearance based. Compliment them on what they do and who they are as a person. Let them see you compliment others with all body types.

3. Never comment on a child’s weight or size. Even if it is to give them what you perceive is a compliment. For example, “you’re so skinny”. It sets up an unhelpful belief that not being skinny is bad. We don’t want them to internalize that skinny is their only worth. Instead try, “I love the compassion you show to others”, or “you’re so great at soccer”. If you’ve made some mistakes before do not worry! It is not too late to start teaching body positivity!

And if it is hard for yourself to internalize these beliefs what better way to start than teaching them to your kids?

There is power in hearing your own words out loud. This is the fastest way I was able to internalize these beliefs and understanding on the subject. Try it!

What’s something you could do today to show gratitude instead of just say “thank you”? How about a hand written note? Visit and spend time with a person? Pray for that person? Your kids could show gratitude for their rooms by cleaning them etc.... ⁣

Happy Presidents Day! I know each of our presidents was only human but some of them had some amazing things to say. Don’t you think?⁣

“A kingdom of isolation, and it looks like I’m the queen.” It’s almost like Elsa knew what it was like to be a mother of young children 😉.
.
.
Let’s be real. Motherhood can be incredibly isolating. My entire family is in the car in this picture, but you can’t see them, kind of like how as a mom you are both never alone and always alone. You would give almost anything for just a few minutes to yourself, but you also would give almost anything for some adult interaction! .
.
Between nap & bedtime schedules, meal times, car seats, fit throwing, and diaper changes, it is almost impossible to go out with your spouse, let alone to make and spend time with friends! Not to mention that not very many people seem to understand you and if they do, you most likely are trying to work around their nap & bedtime schedules as well!
.
.
So if you are feeling isolated, I’m sorry and I’m right there with you! We can be isolated together 😂. And someday it will get better, right??😜

Yesterday a customer shared a photo from Harry Potter World with her HP tassels from my shop on her bag, and it reminded me that I had a few more tassels stashed away to restock. It also reminded me of when our family traveled to Orlando and had the most magical (and rainy) time at HP world!✨🤓⚡️
.
These are an original design (by me!) and you won’t find them anywhere else! I love working with the artisans to create something unique and special, and then seeing them bring my ideas to life! 😍 These one of a kind Hogwarts house pom tassels make the perfect gift!
.
Funny side note: The Slytherin poms get the most ❤️’s or favorites in my Etsy shop out of all the other HP tassels and yet, I haven’t sold a single one!😆 What does that mean?!😅
.
I’m probably going to watch some HP movies since I’ve been sick in bed all weekend. My favorite book is Prisoner of Azkaban, but my favorite movies are Goblet of Fire and Order of the Phoenix. Which are your favorites?

Growing up in my family meant there was typically a nightly game of Uno. We had our own “house rules.” I had no idea our way wasn’t the way everyone else played.
Once I was invited to play Uno at an activity. The game started, my turn came and I started laying down cards, calling out things. Drawing new cards....everyone stopped and I stopped confused. I realized I wasn’t playing by the same rules everyone else was and vise versa. We all thought we were playing a familiar game, until we weren’t.

When trauma has been experienced living and coping changes. You might still be surrounded by a familiar lifestyle, yet your way of organizing that experience is completely different. The “house rules” change.
🃏What should feel safe and good, doesn’t.
🃏Strong feelings sometimes don’t feel like there is a way to share them. Maybe you can’t articulate the feeling. Maybe it doesn’t feel like there is an accurate emotion to describe it or just “can’t find the words.”
🃏Time and distance from the event is jumbled and disorganized.
🃏Triggers are experiences without context, warning or understanding.
🃏Chronological recall is difficult.

Recognizing how trauma interrupts your life experience, becomes an empowering step in organizing and processing your experience.
