I had a strange experience at my local retailer last week. I’ve been in search of some “on ear” headphones. My old ones are tattered beyond recognition and I need a better pair. I like the semi-sound canceling kinds because, as a work-at-home mom, I am bombarded with billions of interruptions throughout the day (and […]

New Rules for Credit Card Companies

February 16, 2010

3 Comments

I saw this in my Clark Howard e-magazine today, and thought it was worth repeating. I’m very glad to see the banks and credit card companies FINALLY getting some accountability (I think the banks own the United States, lock stock and barrel!!). They have been allowed to railroad Americans for too long. These changes take […]

I’m feeling strangely domestic today. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I’ve been working 10-11 hours a day on my job. :pinch: But today, I actually had TWO loads of laundry done, soup cooking, bread machine humming, and school work printed out, all before 9am! Yay! The soup I am cooking […]

I’m going to have to scale back, I think… I get under six hours of sleep and every morning I hit the ground running, to go at top speed all day… and golly, I’m just bushed. I got a new work-at-home-mom job recently, and it’s great! But it’s very time-consuming… and so is blogging… and […]

Oh yeah baby. I have a confession to make. I LOVE disco! I was one of those really crazy girls in high school who loved Donna Summer and the Bee Gees. (Donna Summer became a Christian, too!). I hated the punk of the 80s and the grunge of the 90s. I love the disco of […]

It’s Tough Finding a Watch

I have HAD IT with those battery-powered watches. I hate them. The kids all need watches, as do we adults, and I spend a fortune on watch batteries! They seem to run out almost every other month, and it’s usually *right before* the kids have to wear them to school. Crazy! The batteries are $5 […]
