Posted on Tuesday, January 3, 2023

Are you planning on getting organized this New Year? I absolutely love getting things organized, but sometimes I need some motivation. So here is the motivation that we need to start getting organized and to stay organized!

Avoid Car Break Ins - Don't get Grinched!

Posted on Monday, December 19, 2022

As Christmas shopping and traveling is in full swing, we wanted to touch base and remind you that car break ins are also on the rise.

I had a chat with a police officer earlier last week, and he told me that that was majority of all of his responding calls the past few weeks. Almost every day, he had dozens and dozens of responding calls to cars that were broken in, glass shattered, or attempted break ins. And as the snow starts approaching this week, he anticipates more and more car thefts as people leave their cars running out front of their houses.

True Crime = Glorification?

Posted on Sunday, September 25, 2022

I love a good true crime podcast, documentaries based around true crime, and occasionally I will read a book about a serial killer. It's not that I idolize them, but I can't turn away from the train wreck of a person that they are. Do I idolize the killers? Absolutely not. But the psychology behind the killer fascinates me. What turned them into the monster that they have become?

Sneaky Teenagers and Location Services

Posted on Friday, July 22, 2022

Yep, it's finally happened to me. My second eldest teen boy has been sneaking out and doing things that we do not approve of.

Summer days are made for kids, and swimming, biking, and sports are always the go-to activities of choice during warmer months. And thanks to the ability to work remotely, it's easier than ever for parents to get out of the house, get some work done, and enjoy some time in the sun.

Better Mental Health

Posted on Thursday, January 6, 2022

Millions of people in the U.S. are affected by mental illness each year.

These numbers are also powerful tools for raising public awareness, stigma-busting and advocating for better health care.

Opiod Addiction and Young Adults

Posted on Monday, November 29, 2021

Picture this: Thanksgiving Day - you're in the kitchen, getting the big meal prepped. Your counters are full of food, cans of green beans, boxes of macaroni noodles, potatoes galore, and your child's purse on the counter as well. As your frantically pulling things from the pantry trying to find your last container of broth, you knock over your child's purse onto the floor and all her belongings fall everywhere. As you try to clean them up and place them back into the purse the way they should be, you come across a tiny pill container...

Helpful Tip or Not : Emergency Voicemail

Posted on Tuesday, October 26, 2021

Recently a viral post has spread on and around all the internet, especially Facebook. It's telling people that if they get lost while hiking or their car breaks down somewhere they don't really know, and their phone battery is already low, to change their voicemail message to include where they are and details JUST IN CASE they go missing so that responders can locate them. Not only is the information given incorrect, it could just waste your already low battery life where you could have used it wisely in other ways.

Missing Persons

Posted on Monday, September 27, 2021

Last month the nation watched as the Gabby Petito case unfolded and went viral all over social media. Which leaves us to the question, why is not every missing person's case going viral?

It's Time to talk about Self Protection

Posted on Friday, April 30, 2021

One of my favorite things to do at night when I have some wind-down "me time" is watch some crime television. Whether it's "The First 48", "Law and Order SVU" (Elliot is back btw) or "How I survived" - it always comes to my mind - "What would I do if I was in a situation like that?"

The answer is, I don't know. Sure, I have watched enough TV shows that other's have had that same thought and some make it out alive, while others do not. But what can help my chances of survival if I was ever kidnapped, assaulted or held against my will?

From my research, there are a few different ways to protect yourself...

Teacher Relationships

Posted on Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Lately, it seems like it has become common to see news stories involving the arrest of teachers who are being charged with sexual abuse and misconduct involving their students, some of whom are as young as 11 years old. Schools are expected to be a safe environment for children, but these arrests make people realize kids aren't as safe as we'd like them to be when we send them off to school.

Keeping Things Organized

Posted on Monday, January 4, 2021

If you are anything like me, organization means the world when trying to find a healthy balance between work, home, hobbies and appointments, you know how hard it can be! I myself have OCD to the point that I have to write notes down, all over, all the time. (Thanks Dad!) And having a daily planner was just not cutting it for me. So let me tell you about this little journey I am starting that I hope can start calm my nerves and keep me a little more organized.
