So I too had my first Improv workshop, and signed the family up for the Joliet Drama Guild. No worries, I am not giving up my day job just yet. Kayce Alltop was the Improv master, or the one who taught the work shop. She made even those who were not actors like myself very at ease. I must say, that I learned alot. I also feel that Improvisation or this type of workshop can help one with every day work as well, not just actors. It certainly helped me.

I was excited to hear she was an accomplished actor/person. She's directing and doing improv @ second city, which I find very cool. She also does voice over work. If you ever do get a chance, out of curiosity, as I did to take an Improv class I encourage you so. It was a lot of fun.

The one exercise I really like was the YES AND.....
you couldn't start a dialogue without saying this. This did two things. Yes and....
built on story line. I bought donuts...(next person: Yes and....)
Acceptance was another theory. You accepted what the other person said...I bought donuts, YES AND...yes and I ate them, yes and, Yes and they were good donuts, I need more.

We keep conversations like this going in our every day life and don't even realize we are doing it.

Our next something I am sure we all ask our kids during the day at one point...."what are you doing"
You really had to be quick and think. Creativity was a must. This is a great tool, and can beeven made fun at parties.

I really look forward to more Joliet Drama Guild workshops. I plan to be a little more active, although my degree is in nursing, and I am no actor....I am going to see where this might lead me.

Unitl next time.

Carole Harris

Ten reasons to choose Caroles Party Central for Black Friday!

1.) We are well known. We advertisie on yim, face book, twitter, ning,

2) We were the leaders in vendor parties for 2 straight years, everyone knew Caroles' and still do.

3.) We do print advertising as well, and send out biz cards. We don't inundate our party goers or customers with newsletters so they tire of us. We don't bombard our customers with alot of emails or nag at them.

4.) We network with our collegues who also do parties and have their sites on our website. This is constantly changing.

5) Our spots are 1/2 hour because we know you can't effectively market or sell your product in 10 mins. We KNOW people walk away from the computer, that's why we give you that 1/2 hour, so you don't loose out on that recruit.

6.) We are a mompack member, and offer to help when we can.

7.) We offer free advertising as prizes, and give out many more prizes as well.

8.) We offer guidances to newbies who have never done an online party before without making them feel awkward or shunned.

Is it my duty/obligation or MY CHOICE?

I say it is MY CHOICE. To vote that is. I realize that many have suffered and won for women to vote. But it is still my choice of whether or not to vote. I came from a large voting family. Republican or Democrat, or what ever you were, you voted. Not me, in fact, I didn't register to vote until I was 26. Yep, I was that jaded. I hadn't seen many of the politicians do much of anything besides talk, and REALLY couldn't see what I could do to help.

Well then I became a nurse, and got involved in my union, so I needed to be involved in politics. Met my husband who at that time was a Republican. A Republican!

Since then I have become an Independent, as is my husband. Alot of time has gone by, and in the Era of BLAGO and the like, I vowed never to put another criminal in office. Now I know all those who say it is my dare I! But how are we to know who is criminal and who isn't. I've always said Hollywood bought the race for the president. Whether that is true or not I don't know. It sure seems like it though. Alot of hollywooders campaigned hard for President obama.

Getting back to the topic at hand. What I do feel is my obligation is to keep the criminals out of office. So is not voting the answer? I don't know. And do I have the right to complain, since I didn't vote. I think I do. There is still a first ammendment. I don't complain much anyway. To be truthful...unless a huge meteor crashes into the earth, I don't see much hope for a better economy. I'm sorry but there is no fix or cure all. We all live above our means, whether we want to admit it or not. Obama or any other president will not fix the mess we are to say we won at any election at any point, is in my opinion a mute point.

Unless we can get on the right track, and things improve, jobs, growth, spending, smaller government, no one wins. Fix the homeless, domestic/elder/child abuse. Fix illiteracy. Fix the schools, quit arguing...and DO something. Until the politicians do. I am not voting. That's what I am doing.

Until next time.

Candidates, and politicians alike

I'm seeing it all over. The I did it. I voted. I'm seeing this all over facebook and on blogs. I must tell the truth. I didn't vote, and have no plans to. I did my part. I listened to the town meetings over the phone, Kirk was one. I went to the parades and met some of you politicians, Aj wilhelmi and cedra crenshaw. I read the adverts, and watched the tv ads. I even participated in the marketing surveys in hoping I'd understand what it was YOU were going to do in office.

The only thing I understood, was that YOU, the candidate, the non politician, the accountant, the honest guy, told me absolutely NOTHING. So why should I put you in office. It is my right to gripe whether or not I voted. Freedom of speech is what they call it. I will NOT put another criminal in office. Or anyone I think or deem is a criminal any way. Juries can be tampered with, and NO ONE speaks up before billions of dollars are wasted. Well I won't do it. Give me an honest and I mean HONEST soccer mom, and then we'll talk.

I mean listen up candidates, who else knows how to balance a business, entertaining for the hoiidays and special occasions, homework, doctors and dentists for everyone, bills, tv, movies, pets, and clean a house? WHO? and I truly hope you didn't say DAD.

Now that the rest of my collegues have done their best in trying to put the correct person in office....can you please quit with the phone calls. I mean really, if telemarketers bug us, the majority, what gives you the right?

Until next time


Wish me luck!

In my quest to improve my writing, I've done few reviews and entered few contests. Well, I'm entering a doozy of one today. I'm going to rough draft it first of course because I want to win. Ten tips, that's all I need to give is 10 tips. My miracle is 12 yrs old, you would think I could give more, but we will see. Wish me luck and be sure to tune in to my blog where I'll be giving new moms 10 tips to keep their newborns healthy. It's been a while but I think I can remember how I did things.

What are your family traditions

Aside from any religious traditions, do you have any family traditions? Like game night or movie night? My youngest daughter deemed Friday nights as movie night. A night where the whole family gets together and watches movies. No stress, no friends, no family other than us.

Another tradition we have is gift buying. The whole family participates, like today for the girls birthday party. I went with the girls to buy the present, and dad help get the present ready for show.

How about game night. I bought the girls a new game yesterday. A junior apples to apples. I don't know when our game night will be. Maybe after all is said and done it will be Saturdays. My girls are growing up so fast, I want to catch as much time with them before they don't want to spend any time with me at all.

One tradition I'd really love to start is bike riding together. If I can ever get to get my bike out of the garage I'd like that.

Another tradition we have is pumpking hunting. We usually carve one pumpkin for Halloween. Sometimes the girls and I will roast the pumpkin seeds. I need to figure out the best way to do them .....

What are your traditions? Share them with me in a comment, I'd love to hear.

Until next time.

Childhood ambitions

Wow! I finally have the time to take one of the bloggy challenges! The challenge of course is childhood ambitions. The big question is, did I ever think I would be where I am today or not? Let's take a walk down my childhood dream wish list of ambitious professions shall we. Feel free my Harris family to take the walk with me, and see if you can tell exactly where it is, was and how I met your mother....LOL....(yes a little pun on the show.)

Well at the age of 7 I began playing the piano. I'm not really sure how I got started, I just remember working with the nun in my elementary school. This is where I think I got my musical ambition and dream to play musical instruments. I later went on to play more piano, although on my own. I played the organ at my cousins, and I learned the flute and guitar later. I played my guitar until it got stepped on by my brother. I now have a piano in my home, and have since taken some more lessons, and can play a little...I still would like to be more proficient. My daughters are also interested in playing.

As I went further into elementary school, we (me and my best friends) dreamed of many things. We dreamed of being nurses, or for me writers and even actresses. I wanted to be a dancer at one point until I found out I had scoliosis. That crashed that dream for some reason.

My sister and I would practice doing tooth paste commmercials in front of the mirror. It was fun and something to do. I still believe there was a missed opportunity for my sister....In her younger days she really should have been a model! (my sils too)

In Junior high, at the last minute I worked on the year book. Because I was such a last minute decider, my picture wasn't taken. I thought I would want to work on something like that or a newspaper. So in high school I thought I would work on the school newspaper. But, because I didn't have a lot of encouragement, I was too scared to go for it. Shame, because I really did want to become a writer! I still can do it at my age however. I tell my children you can do whatever you want, and am forever their cheerleader. Even though I never made cheerleader in junior high, and yes, I did try out...I am my childrens cheerleader as every parent should be.

In highschool, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, so I took a bunch of business courses. To tell you the truth, my future looked grim. Alot of kids were on drugs, and those I didn't really know talked about college. So my dream or ambition at that time was to go to college. Why did my future look grim? My family had never really prepared for me to go to college. It was never discussed, or even thought of. My parents didn't think about it and didn't plan or put any money away for me, and they didn't allow me to drive. That prevented me from getting a decent job to put money away for my self. My older brother had gone to JJC, but had dropped out, and that was the end of college days, or so my family thought.

I got a pell grant to start off my college days, and I got very lucky. I didn't do well in junior college for a long time. I dropped out, failed out....wondered if I made the right decisions, when really the trick for me to do well was to be around people who wanted me to succeed! I made it through the nursing program at JJC.

In 1991, I graduated, and I met the love of my life. OOPS, I forgot,,....when I was little, I absolutely dreamed of having the big wedding and the white dress...which I did do! Three years later, after I graduated I married Chuck....Edward Charles Harris....(ya can't tell when I met my mil?) (me neither, for another time I suppose)
I also dreamed of being a photographer, and have to admit, that some of my pictures aren't too bad!

I didn't become the actress that I wanted, but, I help my daughters now practice their plays, and one day, who knows I may even get a chance!

As far as a writer, well I blog, and write reviews, and market for my business. That's a lot of writing. I do plan to write some books, I need to be a little more focused then what I am now however.

Right now I am happy at where I am. I got offered a great job, and if I can take it I will. IF I can't, I'm still happy! I am a nurse, and it's a great job. I am a mom first, and it's an awesome job. I am a wife and it's a worrisome job. I am a friend and facebooker and those are fun jobs. I have many jobs, and look to more in the future.

The Aristocrats

That's my daughters next play. They rehearsed one of the songs today, or just learned it. Such a great bunch of directors and the kids are so gung ho! There are 27 kids this summer. I think the record count was 40 one summer. Some new and old faces. Nice to see our Brenda return and our pianist. Both are very busy all year round anyway I am sure. I don't think our main director has even sat down from the Wizard of Oz yet. We have 4 more performances for that play. I was supposed to be in a play, but I don't think I'll get my big chance just yet. I hate to bug our director. It's so menial, and my way to stardom can wait. LMAO. I'll take some pics when the girls are dancing. I'm going to try and have the whole 2 hours off from work, but it may not be that way all the time. Until later.


Product Reviews

Good morning from hot humid Illinois! It's been quite rainy and gloomy here recently.
It is summer though, and with summer there is swimming, beach parties, plays outside, picnics, fun and plenty of SUN.

In saying that I will be reviewing a product for neutorgena. It is a sunblock. I haven't been outside much. Right now it is very very dark outside....I wonder if there is a thunderstorm warning.

In any case the product I am reviewing is: Neutrogena, Ultra Sheer liquid helioplex
daily sunblock. It is 70 spf, weightless liquid formula and is waterproof.

Disclaimer I am doing this product review without any monetary donations from Neutrogena or any other company.

Oz time is getting closer!

It's so funny! I never thought my husband would enjoy doing what he is doing. But he does. Chuck is a stage hand, handy man, jack of all trades at the play. He's into it. He loves doing it, and even bought the makeup for their play. Of course, I have to apply it. I am so proud of my three! I can't wait for the play. Abby and Chuck are thinking about voice lessons for Abby, and Becca still wants to learn the piano. I can help her with some, but other than that, she needs to go to the instructor. Ah girls after my own heart. Abby also wants to do soccer camp, and basketball camp.

Becca will be going to after school activities for about a month, which I hope includes SOME tutoring. I have to find new tutors for the girls, as I will work with them too, but it just is a better situation with someone else. If you are in the Illinois, Joliet area, come see the Wizard of OZ!!!!

see you soon


Tuesday, June 1, 2010

It's a new month, and so much has happened!

Rebecca made her first communion, and Abby will be going into jr. high next year. My girls are growing up! I'm not nearly ready for it. Becca loves farmville, and loves to help me harvest my crops. We are still planning a vacation, just not sure when. That is because the girls are always busy with something. We recently had cousin Karen here for the memorial day weekend. The girls went swimming. Work has been really good for us. We've been able to get to our debts, I just hope it keeps that way for a while. We all got our first summer colds. Abby also got her bike stolen. That makes 2 bikes stolen out of our yard, Chuck wants to move to a bigger house.

School is out in just a few days! The girls are in the Wizard of oz, and Abby has two parts. She also was in the talent show at school. So busy!

They will be in plays in the summer also, but not sure what. Well off to work and school.

Until next time.

You can't be young forever

My beautiful 7yr old just woke up. Her birthday is in March. I gave her a huge hug and said, Becca can you stay 7 forever. Silence. I hugged her even tighter. "I can't be 7 forever, my age is coming up." What I said. "I'm going to be 8." "Well then can you be 8 forever?" I said, still hugging her, even tighter now. She says to me, "You can't be young forever." "Why not?" "You just can't be young forever, I'm going back to bed"

Oh why can't they be young forever!!!! Wishing I could go back to bed too!

Have you tried Monet Minerals Yet?

Have you tried monet minerals yet? It's mineral makeup that's good for your skin. Anyone that makes a purchase of 10 dollars or more, I will chip in a free lip balm, but you must tell me!

we have awesome specials, just click on the tab! Let me know you purchased....I am also looking for party hostesses!

Why should you buy Mineral makeup? Because it is gentle on your skin, doesn't clog your pores, and no expiration date. It has soothing actions for your skin.

We at Monet minerals have low cost samples, so you can try a little at a very low price. We also have a preteen line, and skin care line. My favorite product is the mud mask. Give us a try!

This time of year

This time of year brings all kinds of sickness. I know from experience, my children and husband were sick this Christmas and New Years. My husband had the worst of it. If you choose to get the flu shot this year, I encourage you to do so. If not, below are signs and symptoms of the flu, not to be confused with the common cold. I believe my oldest, and hubby have really bad colds. Becca may have had a touch of the flu. While the biggest prevention is washing your hands, even with the best asceptic technique you can get sick. The best way to wash hands, is under warm water, and RUB your hands for least 5 mins. Wash them up to your wrists, and rinse well. You can choose to use a hand towel, or paper, just make sure you dry your hands well.


1.) Temperature over 100 degrees. It's important to drink lots of fluid to replenish fluids lost with temp. If you're on any kind of meds, consult your physician for further action. Some medications are diuretics, and you want to be communicating with your physicians when you are sick.

2) Headaches may be related to sinus problems due to a runny nose or other sinus problems. Some people may have general aches and pains associated with the flu. Queasy stomachs are also common.

These are just two symptoms to pay attention to. If you have persistent vomiting or just can't get well after being sick, go see your doctor. If you're on a roller coaster with your family and passing things back and forth...go see your doctor. If you're unsure of ANYTHING...go see your doctor. I know from experience, and not just because I'm a nurse. My family has been sick on and off since Thanksgiving with hubby having it the worst. What did they do? They went to see the doctor. Have a good night everyone. Have a very healthy New year.

Til next time.
