It's the End of the World As We Know It...

And I feel fine.

I know I promised to blog on a more regular basis, but I gotta tell you...I'm not sure what to write about. Sometimes I try to think of something I think you'd want to read. Others, I feel like venting. But, what should this page truly be about?

Tell me, oh wonderful readers, what would you like to see me blog about more often? Would you like more writing tips from experts? Or maybe some more guest posts by some of the most awesome people I've ever had the privilege of meeting? How about just a whole lot of pictures of naked people....seriously, I'll do it.

Here's your chance, peeps. Tell momma what it is you want to see on a regular basis. It's all about you at this moment!

The story of Drexel: She was more than just a dog...

Everyone means well when they say they know where I am, they had to put their dog down. But, I think I need to explain my relationship with you. Drexel was more than just a dog to me.

I adopted Drex from the Humane Society on June 1, 2000 as a four month old puppy. In the beginning, she annoyed the piss out of me. I've never been one to enjoy puppies, kittens, or even babies. Oh, I know that sounds bad. It's not that I don't like them, I just prefer to enjoy them and give them back to their moms. Drex chewed up everything; my shoes, my clothes, my furniture, everything. She couldn't seem to get housebroken, nor trained.

One day, while she was in heat, she got out and I found her mating with a male dog from the neighborhood. The next day I called the Humane Society and asked what would happen if they received a pregnant dog. At this point, she was about six months old. They told me they would put her to sleep if she was indeed pregnant. I hung up and bawled.

I called my mom and told her "she doesn't even know how to sit," to my surprise she sat. Within the next few days she was suddenly housebroken and listened to commands. From that day on she went everywhere with me. If I wasn't going to be in a store more than twenty minutes, she came along. If she was allowed in the store, she came in. She went on camping trips, canoe trips, and family trips with me. I was unable to conceive a baby, so she was my child. I embroidered her stocking with her name, bought and wrapped Christmas gifts, and stuffed her stocking. She had a bandana for every holiday, every special event.

I even kept the first puppy tooth she lost. (Yes, I still have it packed away somewhere)

I was in an abusive marriage; she was my protector. I was always alone; she was my friend and companion. Even after becoming a mother to my three awesome kids, she was still considered my first born. She was always in our holiday portraits, and I talked about her as if she was one of my kids.

Drexel was in my life for almost twelve years, and I will never stop loving her. I will never forget her. I will always hurt for the loss of my baby girl.

I love you, Drexel. Forever and ever!!!!

Did I mention I'm multi-talented?

I've been remiss in mentioning my other business endeavor. I not only write about the supernatural, I create things for babies. Yeah, I know. Kind of opposite ends of the spectrum, huh?!

Don't worry, this blog won't be taken over by my crafts, I just thought I'd mention to you all, as any publicity is good publicity. I may open a separate blog specifically for my other business, but as for now, I have my hands full with everything else!

So, without further adieu, here's a few of my items I offer in my Etsy shop at

My all natural homemade diaper wipe cubes come in a variety of formulas. All the soaps are infused with Vitamin E oil, but I also offer Lavender essential oil, Jasmine essential oil, and Green Tea and Cucumber essential oil. These are perfect to use with your reusable cloth diaper wipes. Just dissolve in one cup of hot water, then pour over your cloths. They're also great as a foot soak, a mild cleaning solution in your favorite spray bottle, or toss them into your bath for your own benefits.

I have a variety of prints for the reusable nursing pads. All pads are made with flannel and fleece for extra absorption, and max comfort.

I also offer contoured nursing pads in a variety of colors and prints. These are also made with flannel and fleece or minky for extra absorption, and max comfort.

Okay, don't worry. I'm not going to post everything in my store, but make sure you head over and take a look around my shop.

Thanks for sticking around for this post, y'all! Until next time, see you in the funny papers!
