Tips for Preparing for Back to School

Have you seen the back to school supplies at all the local retailers?  When I first see the school supplies going up, I usually do not feel ready for back to school; yet as I look at the calendar and each day passes I know it will be here before I know it, so it is easier if I just embrace the change and get in the back to school mode.  



I hope you all have had a fun summer vacation!  Here are…

Waiting to be a parent

There is no end to the debate on what the "right" age is to be a parent: Do you have your children in your 20s so you have the most amount of energy to chase after them? Or do you have them in your 30s, when you feel a little more settled and are at your peak health (and before you cross over to the high-risk pregnancy zone after 35)? Or do you wait until your 40s when you have had enough success in your career and are fully ready to…

Our Visit to Legoland CA

Our family recently visited Legoland CA in Carlsbad near San Diego for the first time and we had a great time.  Before going I had heard from a few people that it is a park geared for younger children and that you only need one day at the park.  My boys are 10, 8, 6 and 2 and all love Lego’s so I thought they would be the perfect age.  You can definitely see the park in one day if that is the only time you…

Using Your Blog to Organize Your Financial Life

I recently saw a coffee mug in a gift shop. The Inscription on it was, “Budgets are for Wimps.” I chuckled but then thought about my own budget laziness. It seemed that every month, I would begin with a healthy checking account balance and start spending money. Toward the last week of the month, I was existing on “air” and eating ramen.

Why don’t my kids get it? No, really means NO!

What is wrong with my kids is a question I ask myself at least 10 times a day!  Anyone here with me?  Don’t lie!  I don’t mean it in a bad way, of course not, I love my kids to the moon and back; more then anything.  That question is more generally speaking because there really is no answer when it comes to this one!  

There is nothing wrong with them, they are just normal, fun-loving, and BIG personality kids that I have created BUT is it really too much to ask that they learn no…

I'm a little bummed. I got a text from a faraway friend who is going to be in my city next week, but it happens to be on a day I will not be around.
