If you make toys, clothes or other items for children and sell them – listen up!!

I just got an email from a WAHM doing really well in the bow making business, regarding a new law that is supposed to go into effect in February that could possibly affect anyone who makes anything for children – toys, clothes, jewelry, accessories, etc., etc.. Please see her page at this link to read about […]

Bring it on, 2009

Another year, come and gone.  They seem to be zipping by so fast now. It’s it funny how when you’re young, the year just seems to draaaaaag by, but the older you get, the faster it seems to pass? I really need to get my hiney in gear this year with a lot of stuff.  […]

They will meet their doom

The termites, that is, I hope.  Tomorrow the exterminator is coming back out again to hopefully drill into the slab of the house to start getting rid of those creepy crawlies. After I cleaned out the closet in my husband’s office I pulled up the carpet to track the trails, which go all the way […]

Merry Christmas – now here’s a cold

Oh yippee. A cold is making its rounds in our house.  I am pretty sure it started with the Kiddo – she still has it – then moved to my husband – he seems to have been hit the worst, and I am kind of teetering on the cusp of coming down with one.  I […]

Holiday recovery mode

Whew. That’s all done with… now to recover over the weekend and go back to the grind on Monday. I did quite a bit of baking this week. Cookies all day Tuesday, and a “deep dish pumpkin pie” last night while we were putting the Kiddo’s “Santa” toys together.  I discovered that I need one […]

Time to go wrap presents

All the shopping is done, now I just need to wrap the presents that aren’t the Kiddo’s so I don’t have to worry about rushing to get all that done before bed.  So I’m about to go do that now, and then after my cookie baking marathon yesterday, I need to pick out a bunch […]

Thanks for the heart attack, cat!

I’m working from home today.  The Kiddo is at preschool, so all there is to bother me while I work is the neighbors dogs barking, and the annoying whine coming from my crappy work laptop. I have a pair of noise cancelling headphones that, even when they are not powered on, still do a fair […]

College just keeps getting more expensive

My senior year of high school, I received a scholorship that I could use at any of the local community colleges.  It was for $1000 per semester, and I really can’t remember whehter it covered books in addition to the classes or not.  Regardless, I do remember how expensive books were even then, and I […]

Insomnia bites

Obviously from the timestamp on my post last night, I was up past bedtime.  I couldn’t sleep.  So I went into my office and sat down at the computer, and posted something to pass the time. Boy did it bite me in the rear come morning… I usually set two alarms on my phone every […]

Almost done shopping and upcoming holiday frenzy

I did most of my shopping online at Amazon this weekend, so most of it should be showing up starting tomorrow hopefully.  I only have a few things left to buy for my MIL and GMIL (grandmother-in-law) that Amazon was either out of stock or just didn’t even sell.  For those things I may actually […]
