Warrior Woman Wrap-Up: One Year Ago…

16 comments

Going back and digging up some favorites from the archive always makes me smile.

And I like to infuse some happy in my day, don’t you? πŸ™‚

It’s interesting to see that the themes I write about today – transitions, kids, fitness – are constant.

And evergreen.

One of these oldies is a regular favorite with readers continuing to visit, months and months after it was originally published. Can you guess which one?

Sit back, take a while and have a read through…

 

Transition The Neutral Zone

What is the neutral zone, huh? It’s a process we all go through when we’ve ended one thing (relationship, job, lifestage, etc.) and not yet embarked on another. It’s an uncomfortable place to be and many people shy away, jumping prematurely to the next shiny, new thing (relationship, job, lifestage.) But that’s a mistake…

 

8 Things Moms Can Learn From Cats

Oh yes, those cats know a thing or to about getting their needs met. Observe their behavior and see what we can apply to our own lives.

 

Tapping Teresa Tapp

One of my heroes and fitness expert who has designed one of the most effective, time-efficient home workouts out there. And yet, no-one seems to have heard of her. I aim to put that right.

 

How Little Inconvenient Things Can Make A Child Smile

Sometimes often it’s a pain for us moms to do certain things that aren’t terribly exciting to us. But sometimes often, they are the very things that mean so much to our children.

 

When Three Year-Old Twins Learn Four-Letter Words – From Their Mother

I admit it. It’s all true.

 

I Am Hairy

Strike a chord, anyone? πŸ™‚

 

So which one was it? Which is the post that keeps being read over and over, long after it first came out? Let me know in the comments!

Hey Alex! Good to have you here! Those cats are wise, girl. They know how to get us running around after them. I am perched on the edge of my chair as I write this so as not to disturb Princess Star from her cosy seat. πŸ™‚

Alison, I always love your humor and personal stories. These are treasures because they always make me remember something from my kids’ life, or they touch some crazy thing I’ve done.

Wishing you many more years of happy stories to share. Thanks.

Makes me glad you are the one with twin boys. My girls are all I can handle and they are 20 months apart.

Girls bring their own challenges. Or at least that’s what people tell me. Twins have their challenges and blessings and we take them all. As they come. I’ve always loved having twins and take the tough parts willingly, and sometimes with grace. πŸ˜‰

Alison,

My bet is that it’s the hairy one that continues to be read over and over. First of all, it caught my eye. And I’m guessing it’s because there’s some key words about hair removal and tweezing, plucking, shaving, etc. that get googled regularly.

Sooooo, am I right?

By, the way, I am going to go read that post NOW!

Alison,

Just stopping by to say hi! I have been busy trying to do things before the kids start school and all that I don’t make it to my favorite blogs. πŸ™

Anyhow, great post. I was not around here a year ago so I missed a lot. I love the way you combine motherhood and life, it helps me get to know you.

If and when I am ever ready to diet or eat better/exercise more I will definitely ask you for help and your T-Tapping.

Hey Allie,

Yes, I know how that goes. We’re not there yet, still a few weeks to go. And as for getting to know me, people who’ve known me for twenty years in RL tell me, they know more about me now than they ever did. Is that a good thing? πŸ˜‰

I agree with Beth. The title “I Am Hairy” is the one that caught my eye first. SU from BF πŸ™‚

A great list of posts.
I’m looking forward to seeing what new ebook my recent post, on writing an ebook, made you think of.

Aha, Ann! I systematize everything in my life and if I don’t, I’m trying to. I don’t even notice, it’s part of my being. So I liked the system you wrote about and I thought about *my* systems…

I am actually quite hairy also…It bothered me much more when I was a lot younger. Still bothers me, when I’m done with school, I plan to invest in some laser hair removal. Quite excited in it actually!

Wow, imagine after leaving anaesthesia school, you throw yourself into…laser hair removal! You are a sadist, woman! But seriously, I understand the drive. Truly. I’ve thought about it but haven’t the patience. I can’t even sit through an eyebrow reshape and I have soooooo much hair it would take me forever! πŸ˜‰
