Today I participated in a focus group for a demographic of women of kids under age 2. The focus was on what info is out there about immunizations.The CDC was hiring us to give them feedback about the American Health and Human Services ad's as well as feedback of what we already now. Questions like what do you refer to these as? and are you familiar with the CDC? and do you know the term up-to date? were asked. I gained some useful info about shots that I didn't previously know. Like whats in them. A few things that could be traced to harmful things do go into these shots but not enough is in them to do harm. I was extremely concerned about immunizing my child. I got over my fear when I did my own research instead ofjust listening to other peoples opinions.During my decision making process I also listened to my pediatrician say that it was ok to go on my own schedule. I trusted myself to make the proper decision. Now I'm okay with getting my child immunized and up-to-date. I thought there weren't as many moms out there with the same fears but almost all the moms in the group had similar concerns. The best news about the study is that we got paid!

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
