Pinterest Make Over

Since becoming a SAHM in October my house has become my masterpiece. And I blame it on Pinterest! haha. But, I am not complaining. However, there are a lot of things there that make me realize how NOT-CRAFTY I am or have enough time to do those things. When we bought this house I never really noticed the little things that were wrong with it...until I became a SAHM. Then I started obsessing over every nook and cranny in every room....more

National (not really) New Carpet Day!

There's nothing really exciting about carpet...unless you've been waiting for it to be installed for exactly 2 months and 3 days. That's just enough time to completely forget what you've picked out and when you refer back to your pictures on your phone and the color is totally off you start panicking that you really did pick out mauve carpet. ...more

Home and Work Are Independent - Work at Work

It is fantastic to know that work and home are independent entities, so do your work at work. Work, also know as employment, is commonly defined as the state of having paid work, one's trade or profession. Work is a serious activity.

While it is typical for employees to spend a little work time goofing off or doing personal things, both these activities are frowned on my most employers. When the goofing off at work or spending time on personal things1 goes too far, a person can find herself unemployed....more

6 Reasons I love living in a Village

Eventhough most young people in my age want to move out their hometowns to the big cities, I like staying in this small village I lived my whole life in. Of course I love seeing new places everywhere in the world, but only in vacation or for a short period of time. It's not that I never ever want to move somewhere else, it's just than I haven't been to place where I felt as comfortable as I do here. Yet.So, here are some reasons why I love living in such a small town:...more

Just Keep Going...

I swear sometimes I totally feel like the Energizer Bunny and I have to just keep going and going and going. LOL! The other night, as the rest of the house was in bed and it was just before one o'clock in the morning, I was sitting here at my computer with my headphones in and the melodic voice of Myles Kennedy blaring in my ears accompanied by either the guys in Alter Bridge or Slash and The Conspirators, finally with a few moments to wind down from the last few days....more

Balance Work and Home to Avoid Excess

It is fantastic to balance obligations at home and work by avoiding concentrating on either area to excess. Excess is commonly defined as an amount that is more than necessary, permitted, or desirable. It is not ideal to live in excess.   Balancing our obligations to home and to work is a balancing act. When I think of it I always think of a seesaw with the things I need to do for home on one side and the things I need to do for work on the other side. A reality is that many women work at home and outside the home....more
