Life Has Been Kickin’ My Ass

Okay, so I guess it is time to pull my head out of my ass. This summer I have accomplished a lot of nothing. Well that is not completely true. I have read 32 books. I have managed to get behind in housework, laundry and self-maintenance. I don’t care what anyone says the crazy little hairs that seem to make and appearance after your 4oth birthday suck. What the hell! I shall now die with a pair of tweezers in my hand.

I have a ton of things to be really pissed off about. However, because I am trying to get over it and move on with my life I will only list my top 5.

1. I am not very good at not having extra money. Momma needs a spa day!

2. The kids need to go back to school and stop destroying my house. I AM NOT THE MAID!!!!

3. I should be in New You’re at Blogher 2012. Why am I not there? Please see number 1.

4. My laptop needs a new hard drive. It is going to cost $175.00 to repair it. Again, please see number 1.

5. Although I love cooking – if I hear , “mom I am hungry” one more time I am going to blow! I can’t buy food fast enough. I am now avoiding my local super market. It is embracing when the check out clerk asks you everyday, “what are you making tonight”.

Today, I crawled out of the hole that I been hiding in. I cleaned the house, did 6 loads of laundry and wrote this blog post. These task my not have been earth-shaking but hey….. give a girl a break. It is a start.

Crabs in a bucket.

Have you heard the saying a crab in a bucket? Well it’s a bucket full of crabs.

When a single crab is put into a lidless bucket, they surely can and will escape. However, when more than one share a bucket, none can get out. If one crab elevates themselves above all, the others will grab this crab and drag’em back down to share the mutual fate of the rest of the group.

Crab bucket syndrome is often used to describe social situations where one person is trying to better themself and others in the community attempt to pull them back down.

The reason I started this blog entry with a definition is because I have been thinking about this for a while now. I have been working day and night, and I do mean day and night. I am building a my brand (me) and I am still being supermom. I love my life (most of the time). I would not change the fact that I work hard but I wonder if the people around me feel the same way. Am I in the bucket? Am I a crab? If so let go of my damn legs because I am getting the **** out of here. Join me. Brake free of the bucket and run to your future. We can do it together.

The Man And The Glass

“The Man” is my husband for better or worst. HE is very supportive and is my biggest cheerleader. There are times when makes me melt with the way he supports me and tells me, ” you go babe”. He thinks I can do anything which is a lot to live up to. He even listens to my crazy southern home remedies, such as: yesterday he had a sliver of glass in his finger and he couldn’t see it and he could only feel it if he hit his finger on something. I told him to wrap is finger in bacon fat and tape few hours. He looked at me like I was smoking crack, but he did it. I tried to explain that the fat and the salt in the bacon would pull the sliver of glass out of his finger. This is how I explained it to him, “My grandmother used this method to remove splinters and it worked every time. Take a very small piece of bacon fat and a band aid or piece of tape. Place the bacon fat on top of the splinter and cover with a band aid or tape. In the morning the splinter will have risen to the top and can be removed. (If the splinter is completely embedded under the skin you will need to put a small prick in the skin above the splinter with a clean needle before covering with the bacon fat.) Wash the area well once you’ve removed the splinter. This remedy never failed to remove even the toughest of splinters.

Guess what it worked about 3 hours later a very thin sliver of glass fail out of his finger.

Victory once more.


Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. ~Buddha


Friends are like panties… .Some crawl up your butt. Some snap under pressure. Some don’t have the strength to hold you up. Some get a little twisted. Some are your favorite. Some are holy. Some are cheap. Some are naughty. And some actually cover your butt when you need them to. I love you all!!

Blogher 11 – San Diego -Part 1

Last weekend I attended the 2011 Blogher 11 conference in San Diego, CA. This was an amazing adventure and a life changing event for me. Over 3000 people in attendance all focused on changing the world one blog entry at a time. I only have one word.. “inspiring”.

One of the most amazing conversation that I have ever witness was given by the female CEO of PepsiCo INDRA NOOYI.  Here is a part of the transcript from this keynote conversation.

Yeah, so Pepsico set up a Women’s Inspiration Network. What we wanted to do is create this network where stories of inspiration about women, about what is happening in society around the world can be brought into a central place. And we connect stories and post them here.
So women can go into this women’s inspiration network and actually listen to these stories and draw lessons for themselves.
At this conference we are announcing we are going to select three correspondents from people who apply to be a correspondent for Pepsico’s WIN Network. You can go to the WIN website and register and post your stories. We are going to pick three people who are going to travel the length and breadth of the United States at Pepsico’s expense, collecting stories that are uplifting that really provide inspiration to women so we can keep this WIN process going and keep refreshing and updating it.
At this conference we will announce we are going to select three people who will be correspondents for us in the project.
Apply for this job. It will be a wonderful assignment for the three lucky people selected for this.”


“I think it’s very important that companies should not forget that we are big. We are agents of efficiency and effectiveness, the world cannot be solved by governments alone, cannot be solved by people alone. It has to be solved in partnership between companies and governments. Public private partnerships are the only way things can work.
Go back. What happened, why did we have the crisis in 2008 that has brought global economies down? It was a maniacal focus on performance to the expense of everything else. I think it’s capitalism that ran amok, is what it was. Capitalism is fantastic, it spurs innovation and creates wealth. All of this is fantastic.
But capitalism without a conscience is dangerous.
And I think that’s what happened. And Performance with Purpose is saying: Yes, performance is critically important, but let’s make sure performance is done the right way, delivered the right way with the view to the long term, not just the short term. With a view to carefully thinking through what’s your impact on all stakeholders, not just the shareholder?
Because you cannot enrich the shareholder at the expense of the other stakeholders: Your employees, your consumers, regulatory bodies, society. You cannot enrich a company at the expense of the others. If you did that, somebody else has to pick up the cost or fix all of the issues that you’ve created.
Performance basically says companies should do better by doing better. We set ourselves a goal which says we are going to be the best performer financially. We are going to do it with an eye to the long term. We are going to do it with an eye to making sure our portfolio has a balanced range of products from treats to healthy eats.
Make sure everything we do is environmentally sustainable.
But most importantly, we want to create a company where every employee can bring their whole selves to work. I say that, Willow, because we see that many people who live in the communities, the cities we work in, they come and park themselves at the door. Come to the company, they’re a different person. When they leave they pick themselves up and go out again.
That’s not how it should be. It should be seamless. We want to create an environment in Pepsico where we can get the best out of everyone. Taken together, it’s Performance with Purpose. It’s just a way of saying capitalism should have conscience.

I only have one word, “amazing”.
