FishMama Unplugged

Years ago before I started a writing business or a blog, or two, FishPapa and I would occasionally call for a media fast. That meant that we would give up our “computer time” for a few days or even a week. Shocking, isn’t it? We found that taking a break dispelled the “power” that the […]

Links of Love

Reading that got me thinking this week: I’m inspired by Rachel and Doug’s No Spend Month. We’re being stretched to stay within our spending budget these days. Not as much went into savings in June as we had planned. Birthdays, AC repair for our rental property, a trip out of town — all good things, […]

Links of Love: The Coffee Edition

You know that I’m a big fan of do-it-yourself-ness. While I love to have someone else do the work for me, my budget says, “What?” So, over the years I’ve learned to make things myself – or find less expensive ways to get the full-service experience.

FishMama’s Got a New Blog!

You know that I am a total glutton foodie. It tends to come out in my writing. talking. breathing. But, since this is a blog about motherhood, and not just food, I decided to consolidate my food writing in one place. That doesn’t mean that I won’t be posting recipes here. No ma’am. But, I’ll […]

Just Wondering….

I so enjoy your comments, questions, and emails. They are a fantastic reminder to me that I am not talking to myself. If that were the case, I might as well go get that laundry done! I gain so much from those who read and offer feedback, and I’m really enjoying the friendships I’m building […]
