My blog is in my siggy, too. I've spent some time sprucing it up. It's just general ramblings...whatever pops into my head that day. http://barefootmama-crystal.blogspot.com/ I also keep a book log of all the books I've read this year... http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...ndID=102845938 And no, I don't earn any money from either site...unless someone wants to donate?
I'm going to do it this year...my first time, too. I've got several novel ideas that have been floating around in my head. I know they would make good books, but I have no motivation to write them. I'm hoping nanowrimo will be the kick-in-the-butt I need. I've been preparing a little. I know my characters names, a little about them. I haven't done an outline, but I have a general idea how the story will go. Right now I am researching some history stuff that I will...
DH is working on finishing his Liberal Studies degree from Excelsior. He mainly picked it because they accepted all his other credits, so it will be a fairly quick path to completion. He is in the military right now and has no idea what he wants to do when he retires. He chose this degree, so when he decides what he wants to do, he can just study that in grad school. He's actually thinking about counseling veterans through the VA, but it's not set in stone.

I actually used DS in a lot of activities... The kids would "read"...
I went back to work after four weeks off, but my situation was a little unique. I taught at a small, private preschool where my boss/director was like a second mother and I was good friends with my co-workers. I was able to bring my son into the class with me. I kept him in a sling most of the day. He got floor time when I did circle time with the class. Sometimes I would let him sleep in a pack-n-play I had set up in my room. When he was sitting up, I got a chair that...

Thank you...I haven't seen that last site. Quote: Originally Posted by...

We have a couple of criteria for it: 1. I don't want it to end in an "ay" or "ah" sound because of the middle name starting...
Thanks. I really didn't want to give it back, but DH is livid about it. I'm going to keep it! I was just worried about the warranty and if it was a good price.
Long story short (maybe)... I bought a Vita-Mix for $300 (from a store) under the impression that it was a demo model that had only been used in the store for thirty days and that everything was in the box. It was missing all three cookbooks and when I went to register it, they (Vita-Mix) said it was originally purchased in 2005. So, there is only about four years left on the warranty. When I called the store to complain, they offered me $30 (hence the $270), so I...
