Buyers consider these rooms when they are house hunting because of the difficulty of renovating them and the expense that would be required. If you have been diligent in the upkeep and upgrades of your home then this…

In two days the bathroom remodel (that has been desperately needed for over 10 years) begins in full force. Our cast iron tub will be demolished with a sledgehammer, our old parquet floor will be torn up, cracked sink thrown in the dumpster and the walls will come a tumblin' down. I'm trying to focus on what the final product will be - not on the…Continue

In the few moments that you are able to sneak away to write while the kids are asleep or at school, the piles of laundry continue to grow, the dishes aren’t washing themselves and no celebrity chef is showing up with a week’s worth of groceries and pre-planned…Continue

This is sooo very cool. I've been doing it since January for Purina, Dollar General, Oil of Olay, NutriSystem, Samsung, Crest and Braun. Why not get paid for something you like to do, right? The joy is you get to do it from the comfort of your own home too.
I've been working with IZEA since the beginning of January advertising and have been paid already for the brand names I mentioned above to post and tweet. All I have to do is bid on their job and I just paid $5.00 up front to…Continue

My son likes to tell me stories about his classmates' behavior at school. (He's a bit of a talker.) I know all about the children who use too many paper towels, or the ones who never sleep during quiet time, and even about the ones who have too many "hateful words." I remind my son that I am only interested in his behavior. Then I remind him that…Continue

My name is Mary but everyone has called me Katie since birth. I was once a wild party girl and I am now a military/ law enforcement wife and a stay at home mother to a beautiful daughter.
I grew up in a tiny town in southern Arizona. Moved from West Virginia at a young age and noone agreed with my country thinking.. (although now its cool to be country!) I moved to Flagstaff after graduation and did not succeed in school. I was that small town upbeat girl in a whole new world and it…Continue

I am so happy you are home from work. Before you walk through the threshold here are some guidelines of what NOT to ask:
1. Wow, what happened here? Life, Life happened here. The minions came home from school, and the living room, kitchen, playroom, and all other applicable areas exploded. If I wanted to follow them around with a basket, vacuum, and trash can, I would. I’m doing my best dude.
2. Whats for dinner? Food, food that…Continue
