The Groundhog and I Are Not on Speaking Terms

                      I was reading a book in my living room. Enjoying the quiet before all the kids were home from school. Something blurry passed in my peripheral vision. I looked up to get a better view. I jumped back when I saw that a...

Get In To Spring with @Kmart #KmartLayawayDance #ad

March 4, 2014
By

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I am a Kmart blogger, though all opinions are my own. Snow is thick on the ground. Winter storm warnings abound. The weather reports are all about how many inches of snow will fall, and not about sun and high temperatures. When was the last sunny day, anyway?...

Enter the @ShopYourWay #Sweeps To Win an HDTV! #ad

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I am a Sears blogger, though all opinions are my own. Have you heard of the old saying…”You don’t know what you are missing until you have it”? I’m paraphrasing it a bit. There are times when you are going on your merry way completely oblivious to what you are missing...

Snow Day Fun #PolarVortex

Two weeks before Christmas, the kids had 2 snow days. Last week we also had 2 snow days plus MLK Day. Snow days have always been a family affair around here. My husband is a former-English-teacher-now-school-administrator. He’s always had the same snow days as the kids. Occasionally, his county will declare a snow day...

The Tale of the Exploding Soda #PolarVortex

The Tale of the Exploding Soda #PolarVortex

Polar Vortex? Is this the official name of the storm? I haven’t done much digging…digging around to find the exact name or digging out from the snow. Instead I’ve been hunkered down enjoying the snowfall one minute…usually when hunkered down inside my house…or cursing the extremely low temperatures as I scrape the ice or...

5 Tips To Get Kids Involved with Chores #home #organization

I wish I had jumped on the chores bandwagon when the children were small. The earlier you start assigning chores to your children the better, right? My little ones always wanted to help me clean or fold laundry…even if I didn’t actually want the help. At times their “help” meant far more work for...

I’ve found that people fall in to two categories when it comes to their homes…the very neat and the very messy. There’s gray area in the home neatness spectrum. I fall in the gray…closer to the “very messy” but with brief brushes with the “very neat.” Where do you fall in the Home Neatness...
