Pumpkin Nabbed

Pumpkin Nabbed

North Natomas- If you see this pumpkin let me know!

Okay ,so this broke my heart. My daughter found a beloved pumpkin at Goblin Gardens and since it was so big, rolled it into the car. We put it in the near 50 pounder in the front seat to get it home then rolled it up the driveway with a dolly. My daughter said do you think it's safe to leave outside and I said "oh yes." She was so proud and checked it and played near it everyday in the last week.

Then...this weekend came out and it was gone. Someone or more than one person came up on our lawn and took it we think overnight? I drove around to see if it was dropped anywhere nearby and no luck.

We'd love it returned no questions asked as it means alot. Wouldn't it be nice to have her little heart feel better and get it returned? Where's the Halloween Spirit?

One Body, Two Worlds by Natachi Mez

I’ve never really walked through the mind of someone other than myself. I’ve attempted it, but then again, how could I be accurate? I don’t know what makes me different from every other girl in the world, but I know the factors that multiply to equal me.

I remember, when I was a lot younger, I wanted a more common name. How many people do you know with the name “Natachi?” I wanted the straight, flowing hair. I wanted the hourglass. As I continue to evolve into a young lady, I embrace my culture. I love my name, which means “from god.” I embrace my hair, and I appreciate everything I have because without them, who would I be?

It’s funny sometimes, looking back. Thinking of all of the ridiculous things that ran through my mind and straight out of my mouth.

Dressy September

Dressy September

One of the most basic pieces of advice I hear from folks who work from home is to get dressed for work every day. While that seems easy in theory, the level of dressiness differs from person to person. I've never been a big pajamas person, so I always get dressed, usually in shorts and a tee. But does this minimum make me feel like I'm ready for work? Nope. Sure, I got dressed a few times last week, but for real consistency I need to learn better habits.

They say it takes 21 consecutive days of doing something for it to become a habit. If you can do 21, why not 30? So for the month of September, I'm making an effort to get dressed—really get dressed—every single day. Partly to get into the habit of getting ready for work each morning, but also because I don't think you always need a reason to dress up. Just because is just fine.
