One Thing Leads To Another

You never know what kinds of discussions will come up while watching television with your children. While watching a program about teams of people trying to catch fish with their bare hands (don’t ask) one team was made up of a father and daughter who owned a funeral home. My daughter didn’t understand how people

The Digest Diet – My Beginning

My path to healthier eating and correct portion size starts today.  I’m using The Digest Diet by Liz Vaccariello. I read about this plan in Reader’s Digest and was intrigued.  Eat foods that help release fat storage?  OK.   I looked over the foods and the recipes and they sounded, well, normal.  I kept thinking,

Green Works – Spring Cleaning

Perhaps it feels like summer where you are, or you are still fighting off the winter chill, but our calendar is showing that it’s officially Spring (in the Northern Hemisphere).  And no matter how much I may dread the idea of cleaning I’m also inspired this time of year – especially when the sun streams

Wife Swap

*** Thanks for the post, Kathy Shelton They started off a long time ago with the television series Wife Swap and now they have a celebrity version of the show. I use the term celebrity loosely though because the people on the show are what you would call C List celebs at best. Nothing against

Newman's Own Organics For Pets

I’ll never forget the day I was in the Pet Food aisle and a woman saw what I was purchasing and said to me “You’re not going to feed that garbage to your cat, are you?”  Um… yikes!  She wasn’t in my face, but her words were powerful enough that I took a step back. 

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Eyeliner Review

Love! Love, love, love this eyeliner. If you are looking for an eyeliner that is easy to apply, is smudge proof for hours, and removes easily with normal make-up remover than you will want L’Oreal Paris Infallible Eyeliner. The reason I chose L’Oreal Infallible Eyeliner was because of the claim of “Up to 16 hours

Latchkey Children

***Thanks for the guest post by Donn Schroeder*** When I first started thinking about what I was going to do with my children after I went back to work they were much younger than they are now. Now they are getting a bit older and want to be independent and the thought of going to
