If you've been at all following the movement of state legislatures who want to tax WAHMs and other home-related businesses who rely on the internet to sell their products, you'll want to read this article in the Wall Street Journal on how these state-by-state battles are going.
As reported in PUBLISHERS MARKETPLACE: "In the long-running battle with states moving to collect sales tax based on online affiliate relationships, Hawaii's governor… Continue

Soooooo, it is a rainy day and the kids were up early. I swear they do it on purpose!!! Since the weather is crappy ( mostly for the twins) or I would be out puddle jumping with the big kids. Marshal isn't too fond of water, so I don't think a torrential downpour would suite him very well. Well, now to figure out things to do for the day. Is it reallllllllllyyyyyyyy so wrong to let them watch TV all morning??
Okay, okay. I decided to bake with them. We have done this lots before, but… Continue

As with most families in the northern hemisphere, it's summertime, which means twelve weeks off. What to do? sports, summer camps, summer school, volunteering, or jobs? With a fifteen-year-old, it's different. They're a little too young to get a summer job, and often quite lazy.
Well this year's different. Jordan, my youngest son, has shown some initiative, and I'm feeling quite proud of him. He wants to earn some money for his passion: Paintballing. Now, don't get me started on the… Continue

So we finally did it - we took all 3 kids out to eat at a restaurant! This was the first time taking them all out at once since the baby has been born, and I must say, it went much better than expected : ) Of course, when I tell you where we went, you will probably think it was cheating because I don't think I've ever seen any kids misbehave at this restaurant - haha!
So where did we eat? Rainforest Cafe - and let me tell you, the kids LOVED it!!!!!
We were seated a table… Continue

I am giving it a shot to start writing, so that I can keep my sanity while staying home with my 4 kids. I have 4 wonderful kids under the age of 5. As any mom can imagine, life is HECTIC!! Our twins have turned 1 and are just about walking, so my life as I know it is about to change. I remember back to when my oldest was first learning to walk and how "cool" it was and egging her on to do it. Alas, these two are almost doing it and I keep saying, "You don't need to walk yet, Take your time!!" I… Continue

Well, they are back! The Transformers are waging another battle of good vs. evil on the big screen. This means that we will get a chance to witness the Autobots and the Decepticons duking it out under the guise of sending a positive message about how good always prevails over evil, and as a bonus blowing A LOT of stuff up in the process. I would not care about this in the least except that along with the new movie the new Transformer merchandise has landed. I am especially irritated because I… Continue

I joined Mom Bloggers back in March?! This is my first blog post. It's amazing how time flies when you are consumed with everyday life. There isn't even anything relatively interesting happening in my life. But, there is a lot of life happening.
Changes are happening now. Big changes have been happening over the last two years and I'm wondering when the Universe is going to give me a breather.
We are currently in the middle of packing up our house to move… Continue

So I have been incredibly busy due to moving. And I am just now getting back into blogging on a regular basis. I have crappy news about my blog though.... I am unable to get the followers thing to work. No matter what I do, it just will not work. So I guess the only way to receive updates about my blog is to subscribe via e-mail. By the end of the week I hope to have a new layout up [3 column] and I will try to have all of my feedburner stuff on there so that those who are interested can… Continue

I just finished taking a bath. I don't mean just any bath. I mean a big girl bath, one without any kiddos. For those of you with kids, you know what I am talking about.
First, I go in and turn on the IPod to Choo Choo Soul. No wait, I said NO kids. I can listen to anything I want. My choice, Michael Jackson Dangerous album. Next, I turn on the water to lukewarm, pour in tearless baby wash and pull out the color dots. Wait, Wait.....tonight it can be scalding hot clear water with the… Continue

A week ago or so, I stumbled upon this post
written by the Mummy Whisperer and here is the comment I made:
That’s a very interesting and yet very tricky question…
I have to say that when I read the title of your post I wasn’t expecting the content to be mainly on co/Independence, because to me this is not so related. But that’s a good point you raised.
To me you… Continue

To hit the terrible twos: to hit head against wall because toddler decide to not cooperate in crucial moments such as when crossing the road. To scream at the top of one's head because one's child decide to play hide and seek in clothes rails in shops and won't listen when being called once, twice, twenty times. To loose one's marbles when toddler laughs at one's face when being told off.

I hesitated long and hard before writing this post but today, I was in the sort of mood when you over analyse things of the past.. you know for example why did that girl hit you in the playground 10 years ago...? ok 20 years ago, FINE 25 years ago at least! Or what about that boy who was a real jerk and broke your heart. That sort of memories that make you think, why? what did I do to deserve this? It rarely happens, I am more the sort of person who gets up, brush up my hands and moves on, but… Continue

This was written for VA's but useful for all business websites:
This evening I was delivered a news item through the Virtual Assistant group on Linked In. The post talked about 5 Items You Must Include on Your Virtual Assistant Website .
I was intrigued because I have to say 85% of the virtual assistant websites I land on result in an immediate ‘No’.
