The honeymoon is over- Phase two

November 13th, 2013 by Rose DesRochers · No Comments

Raising a granddaughter

The definition of who I was once defined as daughter, wife and mother. I was the woman who put her child’s needs before my own.  23 years later I still do that as evident of my new role.

My youngest son left the nest two years ago.  I worried that my role of motherhood was ending with his independence into adulthood. I wondered what I would do with an empty nest. I asked myself time and time again- what now? Where do I go from here?

I soon realized my son was not leaving me, but moving towards his life.  After he moved out I missed him and worried about him. I still do. However I know I contributed to his growth and am very proud of how I raised him and the man he has become, even though at times he can vex me so. (more)…

The World’s Largest Scrabble Game

September 20th, 2012 by Rose DesRochers · No Comments

The World’s Largest Scrabble Game

Among the many board games that have come and gone, Scrabble by Hasbro is one of the games that have withstood the test of time. New to Scrabble? Scrabble is a word game in which two to four players score points by forming words from individual lettered tiles on a game-board marked with a 15-by-15 grid. The game is educational, fun and entertaining. If you suck at Scrabble as much as I do, the prospect of paying 12,000 US just to embarrass yourself may not be too appealing. (more)…

Borderline Personality- The I’m sorry game

April 25th, 2012 by Rose DesRochers · 1 Comment

It vexes me so. Has life really become that mechanical? My feeling oblivious. “I’m sorry” has lost emotional value. Meaningless words utter all too often. A way only to escape actions. Once again I’m standing here the recipient of empty words that can not mend my broken heart.

What Makes a Man Respect a Woman

July 30th, 2011 by Rose DesRochers · 6 Comments

I’m so very tired of listening to women complain how they have been used for just sex by a man when they allow themselves to be used and portrayed as sex symbols. There is one thing to be said about being confident in your appearance and another thing to be said about flaunting oneself in a degrading manner. When you do this all you have done is allow yourself to be treated as an object.

Not one woman is a victim when they allow themselves to be used over and over again for just sex by men. How can a man respect you when you give up sex too soon? Do not allow yourself to become a victim. Respect yourself and you fill find the man who respects you too. Men respect women who love and respect themselves.

CSN Stores Review

March 16th, 2011 by Rose DesRochers · 1 Comment

CSN Stores is widely known in this blogosphere! I have done a review for them before on my other blog.

Last month I approached them with an interest in reviewing for this blog. I was sent a gift certificate to use towards an item.

We are changing our living room decor and I have had an eye on a media cabinet that I saw on the CSN stores website for a few months now, so I decided to use my gift code towards the cabinet.

I will admit I was really nervous about ordering such a large item from CSN stores, however the media cabinet arrived very well packaged. (more)…
