Think You're a Stay-at-Home-Mom? Nope! Wikipedia Says You're a Housewife!

Words matter. A lot. The difference between “leak-proof” and “leak-resistant” could mean nothing, or it could mean a kid sitting in a puddle of pee because you picked the wrong diaper cover.

So consider this little tidbit from Wikipedia: If you search for “stay-at-home dad,” you will be taken to this page, titled, not surprisingly, “Stay-at-home dad.” Now search for “stay-at-home mom.” Go ahead.

Last Week in the Working World

Its hard to believe that tomorrow begins my last week at work.  I've worked since I was a teenager.  In my 20's I began a 10 year career as a bartender.  After that, my interest turned to the fitness field.  I've worked in a few different states and even in England.  Its hard to believe I won't have the responsibility any more.  What will I do with myself? I will be able to get all the stuff at home done that I stress over not having the time to do.  I can FINALLY take my writing seriously and actually finish some projects to submit....more
