Pet Marking Be Gone

Could this adorable fuzz ball completely wreck carpeting in pursuit of “claiming” territory as her own? You bet! No matter how many times we’ve tried to get her to go potty on the potty pad (what a concept!) she has this one spot in the back of the living room that she prefers. Lotsa money, scrubbing, and cleaning of the area does not seem to affect her marking habits one bit. Cut to the chase…….

Peace & Calming

I’m willing to take a stand when it comes to the notion of Peace & Calming® as a major part of my ninja mom arsenal to create an environment of harmony, agreement, calm, serenity, composure, cessation, order, pacification, reconciliation, truce, unity, congeniality, contentment, hush, lull, quiet, relaxation, repose, rest, stillness, and tranquility (I do so love thesaurus.com.) Is there anyone out there who would be opposed to these qualities in their life? Kids, teenagers, dogs,…

Essential oils bugs don’t like

Hospitality is good and all, but I draw the line and hosting insects.  Ewww.  Here is a list of some oils to discourage the nasty little things. Ants: Don’t like Peppermint or Spearmint.  I can personally testify to the Peppermint thing, which was the only way I was able to win the war on hordes of ants marching into my home one summer.

Our furry kids…

There is only one kid left around here that I am allowed to call my “baby.”  All of 4 1/2 pounds, her official AKC name is “Slightly A Princess Grace Jubilee,” but she answers to “Gracie,” “muppet,” “frog” (teenager), and “dawg.” Nobody that has a pet can do so without our furry friends having us wrapped around their little paws, our hearts in their pocket, and causing us to act like complete idiots talking baby…
