Dude, when did going to the movies become something you had to save up for? I know that bitching about the cost of movie-going these days has been done, but I can't help it. Everytime I go, I wonder how the people that run the theaters and/or the people who run the concession, are able to get their A.I.G. on and continue to charge consumers prices for things like candy and soda that are so clearly robbery. Oh, and now, not only are they continuing to violate us in the most base and lube-less of… Continue

A bit of history: About a month ago, a friend of mine decided that she was going to have her IUD un-installed. She thought she was "ready to start thinking about trying to come to a decision about" getting pregnant. She knew the consequences. We both knew the consequences dammit but that didn't stop us from throwing caution to the wind and then watching it fly right back and smack us in the faces with the sound that I imagine liver makes when dropped from a great height and lands on the… Continue

27 Handy Kitchen Gadget Tips You Didn't Think Of

Healthy Living is the number one goal among North Americans. However, 80% of the population do not know that cooking healthy, eating healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables, and making healthy choices can mean the difference between life and… Continue

I found this wonderful site, GNC Web Creations
, that has helped me so much with my website.
You see, I was one of those that thought, If I make it they will come. I was sorely mistaken.
I didn't have a clue what I was doing, nor did I have any money for specialized training. Just as I was becoming desperate, I ran across… Continue

I've been trying for a few days to get one of those little scroll boxes with the HTML code for my button up on the site. I know that I am not the first one to have a hard time figuring this out because I found a lot of different sites that claimed to explain it. I've been trying for three days to do this so obviously all of these sites do not make it clear. I decided that I would do a quick write up of exactly what I did to get the little scrollable box to finally appear on my site. First of… Continue

I decided to add a cute little favicon to my web page. As with the other HTML aspects I have added to my page it took more than a few tries to get it right. I decided it was time to write another HTML lesson to help you guys out if you've been wanting to add a favicon but didn't know how to. Having a favicon for your blog isn't just cute. It will definetly make your blog stand out among others. A lot of people don't have them and don't know how to put one on their page. This is good for us… Continue

I almost always forget to add my signature to the ends of my post. I have a signature and I think it is a very nice signature but it always slips my mind when I finish writing a post. I knew that there was a way to have your signature automatically load after each post but I just kept forgetting. So, anyway, here's a little guide on making a signature for your blog and where to put it so that it always shows up on each of your post.
First of all, you need a signature. The easiest… Continue

I was having a hard time concentrating on my work because my son has become extremely active and only sleeps 1 hour during naptime. I was thinking of getting a babysitter and my friend suggested that I should try Sitter City
because that's where she found her son's babysitter and she's been raving about her. So I signed-up and found someone based on her ratings and I've been using her since. My son totally loves her.… Continue

I was startled to find a big, green praying mantis hanging out on our garage door as Munch and I returned home today. I love these little bugs- they are really cute and intelligent-looking- and I hear they make good pets. But we certainly don't need another creature to raise right now (I'm still nursing Sari back to health) and didn't have a place for it (other than a plastic jelly jar...)… Continue

This morning, I was walking in to work and there were several people walking in front of me. We all had our bags and our lunches and we marched slowly into the building. Kinda depressed me but as I reflected on it, it started to motivate me. It's a cold gray metal and glass building. We all work in cubicles, some offices, some labs. We sit in front of a computer for 9 hours a day so we can have every other Friday off. At the end of the day we grab our bags and we all march out only to do it all… Continue

So... My first husband and I actually went to the same high school together. We started dating when I was 17. We got married when I was 19. I'm 32 now. Our oldest daughter is soon to be 12. Our younger daughter is 9.
I simply am not the girl I was when I was a teenager. I've changed, a lot. I've learned a lot as well. My husband and I grew apart. We get along very amicably and have a working arrangement for our girls.
Lately, I've been feeling the missing part of being a… Continue

I have this friend Steve who was recently on a flight. Across the aisle was a new mama with her babe and a very elderly man, who from here on in shall be called ‘old dude’.
As the airplane was taking off, mama started breastfeeding babe. As any travelling mama knows, it’s good if you can get babe to feed on the way up and the way down to relieve any ear pain due to changing air pressure.
As she is feeding, old dude is shuffling around, mumbling under his breath, clearing… Continue

This is a title of an article in the Orlando Sentinel Newspaper today. These statistics come from a study done in Atlanta, but have no fear, these statistics are more common across the country than not. A report done in 2007 and 2005 found that only 13% of U.S. high school students get a minimum of 3 servings of vegetables per day and only 32% get 2 servings of fruit. The sad thing is that the numbers did not increase from 2005 to 2007.
The Federal nutrition goals for 2010 call for at… Continue
