After coming across a conversation on Facebook by one of my sister bloggers, Christine Wolf, talking about how exhausting all the driving kids around can be, I thought I would write a post with some tips to make the most of the car time. By the other comments on the thread, it was obvious that she was not alone in her sentiments.
So how can you make the most of your time in the car? Check out these 10 tips below:
1. Learn what is going on in the lives of your children and the lives of their peers. If [...]
A stitch in time saves nine…
We’ve all heard that saying. And we may even nod our head at it. Makes sense, right?
It really is true, though. When you have a small hole in something, if you sew it up right away it will save you from having to make a major repair later. Have you ever thought about how this can apply to other areas of your life?
Many times, because we are in a hurry, we put off doing the one stitch when we first see the issue, only to be plagued by a much bigger problem [...]

Sometimes we long for an adventurous life. We want to throw caution to the wind and go with the flow.

I hope you will grant me this deviation from my normal topics. I want to keep this short and sweet so here goes:

From now until the end of February, I am offering the products I have on hand at a 40% discount. No sales tax either. I can ship all [...]
Many of us started this new year off wanting to change something, wanting to do something different. Chances are though, most of us have not been as successful as we would have liked. The biggest reason people fail at creating and sticking to new habits is that they don’t keep doing it.

When you look at it this way, the key to forming a habit is not how [...]
Many of us work in an endless stream of tasks, browser tasks, social media, emails, meetings, rushing from one thing to another, never pausing and never ending.
Then the day is over, and we are exhausted, and we often have very little to show for it. And we start the next day, ready for a mindless stream of tasks and distractions.
I am a fan of going against the stream of what most people do, and taking a step back. Is it really worth it? Is this the best way? Are we losing our lives to busy-ness and distraction?
