Find out how I became Mom of the Year!

On the first day of football practice, my son who was doing so well, fell wrong on his arm. He’s a bit on the dramatic side so we didn’t think too much about it (theater camp and all). The next day he’s still being cautious with that arm. Finally, my dh reaches over and squeezes […]

Wordless Wednesday

What a lovely day for a canoe/kayak on the lake. It’s so hot here that this is about the only way to stay cool. It will be in the 100’s again today! Sweet ducks swimming on the lake to keep their feathers cool. Although the geese kept chasing us if we got too close to […]

Is there a cell phone out there that is lighter on the family’s budget?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I’ve finally found one. Our current plan is so costly for 4 phones. We decided to check out TracFone. TracFone has no credit checks, no contract, no cancellation charges and no activation fees! They have one of […]

You never know when it will be your turn to choose a skilled nursing facility for your loved one.

It’s been two years ago this November since I had to make that decision. It came out of the blue. There was no planning for it. You can’t plan cardiac events or car accidents. It is so much better to know in advance how to pick one than to try to do it when you […]

Stevia anyone?

Ok, so I was given a stevia plant and am experimenting making sweet tea with it. I have to admit I like the way the plant tastes better than the powder. To me, when I make tea with stevia packets it is just way too powdery. So, this is pretty much a note to myself […]

Yeah, that’s the ticket. It was so […]

Parent’s Choice Infant Formula College Savings Sweepstakes offer…must see…

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PBM Products for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. When my children were babies I loved feeding time with them. There were many times when I was not available to feed them. As a working mom, I was so glad that Parent’s Choice infant […]
