My husband has loved this song for many years.? It brings tears to my eyes when I listen to it – especially now that my grandma passed away only a few weeks ago.
I subscribe to several different sites and blogs.? I often get daily emails from each one of them and it can get overwhelming.? What I should’ve done ,in the beginning, was created a separate email address to receive all the feeds and updates, but unfortunately I didn’t think of this soon enough.
A friend of mine told me about iGoogle.? It is a personalized homepage where you can store all of your favorite site feeds.? Once you add the feed, each site will have its own section that displays the titles of 3 of the most recent posts.? You can scroll over them to read a portion of the article or click on the title to go directly to the site and read the whole article.
You can also categorize each subject and have a separate page for each one.? Once or twice a week I go into my iGoogle and check out my favorite site posts.? This is a fast and easy way to stay up to date without wasting a lot of time.? I have way too much to do, then to spend hours reading posts.? So, now I am able to read through the titles and only open the posts that interest me.
Another cool feature is that you can customize your page according to the seasons and holidays.? As you can see in the picture above, I have a winter theme on my page.

A friend sent this to me and it brought tears to my eyes. I thought I would share it.
I was on my way home from my mom’s house this past Saturday and I got a call from my husband.? He started to explain to me that he was in the bathroom and the kids kept asking him if they could watch Tom & Jerry on TV.? We have the “On Demand” where you can pick anything out of the kid’s category and play the show just like you would a DVD.? It is actually pretty cool.? The kids have a few that they always want to watch, but their favorite is Tom & Jerry.
Anyway, my husband kept telling them to hold on – hold on.? Hubby was not feeling well and it was taking him a bit longer in the bathroom than usual.? So the kids took it upon themselves to climb up on a stool and grab the remote off of the top of the entertainment center.? Keep in mind that my daughter is 3 and my son is 4.
After getting the remote, they started pushing buttons, I guess thinking that they would somehow get to the cartoon channel.? From the bathroom, my husband thought her heard something weird.? When he came out of the bathroom and into the living the kids were siting quietly next to eachother just staring at the TV.? And what were their little eyes glued to?? A FULL FLEDGED PORN!!
As my husband was sharing this with me over the phone, my heart sunk into the bottom of my stomach.? I was devastated.? I asked him how long they were watching it and he told me that he really didn’t know and that it could’ve been 5 minutes or more.? WHAT A NIGHTMARE!? I had no clue what to do.? Do we talk to them about it?? Do we just let it go and hope that they forget about?
My husband just quickly changed the channel and out on Tom & Jerry for them and didn’t say anything.? I asked some advice from my mom and a few friends and I got mixed answers.? Some said that maybe I should talk to them and some said to just let it go.
What would you do???
I have wanted to have my own “me” website for a long time and now it’s here!
So, why “Painter Mommy”?
Well, a friend of mine…actually That Painter Lady herself suggested it for my Twitter username, and it has stuck ever since.? I am proud of the name because I am both a painter and a mommy.
If there were no limits on the length of a username, I could probably have the name “Painter Mommy Wife Friend Virtual Assistant Jack Of All Trades etc…..”? But for now I will stick with Painter Mommy.
So, welcome to my site.? I will be using this as a place to post anything and everything.? This should be fun!!
