Trump Fans Need to Just Give Us a Minute


Today has been a long day, especially since for most of us it started yesterday. We’re tired. Emotions are high. We’re all raw and feeling vulnerable for various reasons. I’ll be the first to admit that I am not dealing well. Honestly, the last time I cried this much in a day was when my […]

Never Admit You’ve Been Sexually Assaulted


I’d like to thank Donald Trump. And Bill Clinton, really. I’d like to thank both of them for giving me a reason to finally speak openly. I can’t get away from two words these days–sexual assault. They are constantly on the news. In my Facebook news feed. In my Twitter stream. And every single time […]

Beware the IRS Phone Scam

IRS Phone Scam

Yesterday I received a phone call from phone number 509-588-7291. I was on the other line, so it went to voicemail.

New Layout for Pet Connection

Cindy has been busy revamping her Pet Connection site. It looks so much better! I think the new theme is more professional and a little easier on the eyes. She still has a little bit of work to do on it, but I think that you will like it. You can check out her pet […]

Tax Time is Just Around the Corner


Are you one of those people who puts off your taxes until the last possible minute? I’m one of those people who actually loved my tax class in law school! Although my handing out tax advice over the Internet would be in violation of some pretty serious state licensing laws, I’d still like to be […]

A New Look for Helping Moms Connect


  After being online for four years, we have decided to try something completely different! Because of our love of WordPress (and our love-hate relationship with regular HTML), we have decided to switch all of Helping Moms Connect over to a WordPress blog with a theme that acts like a CMS. In the next few […]
