How to Save Money on a Saturday - Coupons and Church Sales

Today was a great day, and even better — a frugal day. We got up after 9 a.m. (somehow Landon seems to know that it’s the weekend, during the week he gets up around 7:30 a.m. I needed that sleep, I had been up until 2 a.m. again blogging!) and ate a healthy breakfast. I made oatmeal because Landon asked for it (ot meow). I spend a little time on my computer marketing my blog (Twitter and Facebook updates, an e-mail to my friends) and got ready to head out. I wanted to check out the rummage sale… Continue

Finding Time for Exercising and... Taxes

Taxes, ugh… I just spend another evening compiling the necessary information for our accountant. Yes, we still haven’t sent him what he needs. I have been meaning to give him a call for weeks now, to at least let him know that we intend to use him again this year! But I have been so crazy busy with work (and blogging!), I was pretty sick for two weeks, and here we are, three weeks before the deadline. Wasn’t it just Christmas a little while ago? How does this happen every year? I am such an… Continue

My Stimulus Plan -- Being Grateful

What makes you feel grateful for everything you have in your life? For me it is hearing the wind howl in the trees outside. I’ll explain…



Last night, I crawled into bed at 1 a.m. after finishing an editing project, and as I sighed and got all cozy and warm next to Landon, I heard the wind howl outside. There is something about that noise that instantly makes me appreciate that I have a roof over my head. Sure, most people do, but it’s not just about having a roof over my head. It… Continue

Warning About Hand Sanitizer Poisoning in Children!

A few days ago I received an alarming e-mail from a friend about another mom’s little daughter who got very sick and was hospitalized after ingesting hand sanitizer. This is not the first time I have heard about this, and I want to urge everyone, parents and grandparents, to be very careful with these products or not to used them anymore at all!



This little girl, four years old, was very lethargic and incoherent in school, and when they got her to the hospital, she had an alcohol… Continue

Tips on Being Frugal and Green!

I want to share some tips with you on how I save money—and who doesn’t want to these days—while being kind to our environment.



1. Save cardboard, address stickers, and toilet rolls for art and craft projects

Growing up in Germany, I remember that my mother always collected little boxes and toilet rolls and would drop them off at our kindergarten when she had saved up a whole bag. We would use those materials for art and craft projects. Do people do that here as well?… Continue

Things are Kind of Crazy Around Here...

Things are kind of crazy around here. Don is sick with aches and a cough and a headache, so I am trying to get him better, emphasis on trying because he doesn’t want to take anything. Why do men have to be so difficult when they have a cold? Take two Advil and some cough medicine already instead of groaning so much! I think he’ll live…



And then I got a message today that the deadline for my latest proofreading project—the most tedious one I have worked on in a long time—got… Continue

I Don't Get Facebook!

Am I the only one who doesn’t want 300 “friends” on Facebook? Am I the only one with a cell phone that doesn’t have a camera? Am I the only one with no interest in texting? The latest and greatest for a lot of other moms I know is being on Facebook, everyone declares to be addicted to it—I have to admit, I don’t get it.



I finally decided to sign up with Facebook and Twitter about two weeks ago, since I understand that as a blogger you “have” to be on them, it is one way how people… Continue

New Organic Toy Line - "My Natural" Plush Toys

review-my-natural-2-toys2



We got a package two days ago that Landon (and I!) could not wait to open. We received two soft plush toys from the My Natural Toy line. They are made by Hosung, the makers of miYim Organic toys, a Brooklyn-based company that created these and many other cute, cuddly characters out of organic, environmentally friendly materials.



The frog,… Continue

My Husband got Hooked on "The Bachelor"!

Guess who could not get enough of The Bachelor this morning? My husband, dear Don, who criticizes me so much for liking some reality TV shows like John and Kate Plus 8 and The Bachelor! I started watching the episode that aired last night after I noticed that my DVR had recorded it. I had not seen the show before that, the one where Jason had made his choice between Molly and Melissa, so I was getting… Continue
