See how I really feel about the holidays, and Free Student Portfolios by Virb

It is a chilly night and even though we’re in California it does get cold in the East Bay. A reminder that the Holidays are upon us and that for the next several weeks… the kids will be home FULL TIME, significant others – also home, much more often than usual. I do love having them home, but it is not secret that there is more work for me.

Even the basic grocery shopping will be a nightmare for at least another month, people are now in full “beast” mode. From now until Christmas eve it is a mad dash to see if it is humanly possible to get everything done before Santa makes his way down the chimney – and if you do – is it possible to survive until after the new year?I don’t know, so after getting the tot into bed I start with a little late night social media browsing/research/guilty pleasure tomfoolery – still thinking of the chaos about to ensue… then I see this.


Virb wants students to succeed—so much that we’re giving Virb away for free to anyone with a .edu email address. Build your own beautiful portfolio and go get the job of your dreams.  Source: Free Student Portfolios

That is pretty darn awesome offer from Virb. If you don’t know about this company; they are a group of professionals who love to build

websites. They help simplify the process for others, so they can focus their efforts on their own business. Here is the list of features.

I can’t take advantage of the offer myself because I am not a student, but I am a mother. I know other mothers. Do you know what we all have? Students, or children that will be students. Thanks for looking out during their slow roll into the future.

I like to pass along a good deal/deed when I see it.

Tell your kids.




A new blog, medical cannabis, and a huge penis.


If anyone can help… I am looking for the owner of this book.

No, really… I bet this book is actually for women who live with a total dick!

No, no… honestly…

File this one under jokes, please ;)

just in case you thought I was really looking! I am not!

That is all! a-hem…

The weekend is here. Lighten up! Avoid the shopping centers. Stay in and make cookies with the kids. Watch Polar Express. Snuggle.

This week I finally added a much needed blog to You will now be able to see the updates and new additions as they happen.  If you have never been there, you should check it out. It is a website that includes a ton of information about the public domain and creative commons. It also has many pages of links to resources like movies, artwork, music, graphics, and photos all of which are in the public domain (copyright free) or other open license.

Just a reminder to my California family and friends. If you are a Medical Marijuana or Medical Cannabis patient using cannabis as an alternative to the poison provided by the drug companies…. your salvation is here. Head on over to – click the link there to save $20.00 off your first Medical Marijuana / Medical Cannabis delivery. If you don’t have your recommendation, or need to re-up – you can do it there at NuggMD, right online… quickly and rather affordably. Alternatively, you can click that neat image above this paragraph to do the same thing! When you are ready to order, I personally recommend Community Gardens if you are in the Richmond Area.

I think that is all for now. I have some things brewing on the back burner. The holidays are approaching fast and I want to focus on giving Madeline the best Christmas yet! Happy Holidays everyone.
