  And no, it’s not because I’m lazy, contrary to the belief some hold.   Although, I admit, there are days I feel like a complete failure because my TO DO List isn’t completely checked off. I end up feeling lazy because I didn’t accomplish everything I wanted to in one day. And I do realize that it’s nearly impossible...

I don’t know about all of you, but we experienced some great moments and some rough ones in 2013. Those rough moments were hard to deal with, and often left me crying and wondering “How much more can I/we take?” Somehow, though, we made it through all the highs and lows, and here we are….better because of all the experiences we’ve...

Years ago, before the handsome little guy below was born, I told myself I wanted to find a way to work from home. I wanted to be my own boss and have more flexible hours. Also, I didn’t like the idea of my son going to daycare. His sister never had to because the company I worked for was also the same company as my mom, so she was able to watch my daughter...

Family time is extremely important to my boyfriend and me. We always put our children first and make sure all of their needs are met, no matter what, even if that means losing sleep at night to cuddle one back to sleep because he or she doesn’t feel well, had a nightmare or was scared by a thunderstorm. We eagerly step up to the plate to take care of each other’s children no questions asked. We will even lose sleep to take care of each other when we’re sick. There have been many nights he has lost sleep because...

Disclosure: This is NOT a sponsored post. I wanted to write an honest review of a service that I tried on my own in an attempt to lower my phone bill. Several months back I switched to Straight Talk from T-Mobile because I was tired of a high monthly payment. I pay $45 a month now for unlimited nationwide text, talk, data and 411. That’s a big difference from the $130-$140 a month I paid T-Mobile. As a divorced mother of two, I needed to find a way to cut costs and switching to Straight Talk allowed me to do that. When I switched...

Recently I was sent a link to a video about the new MySpace and it led to a conversation on whether or not I would create a new page on there now that it has undergone significant changes. My answer: HELL NO! Since the site first launched many years ago, it has changed drastically, and I think it almost has a Pinteresty feel now. I remember back in the day when I couldn’t go an hour without checking my account, kind of like how I now am with Facebook. But now, I couldn’t care less about MySpace and there’s a reason...

As you can see, it’s been a bit since I updated the site. There’s been a lot of changes in my personal life that will ultimately impact the content on this site. I’m now living life as a single mom of two. That’s brought about a whole new set of challenges in my life, as well as in my children’s. Now, more than ever, it’s important for me to find ways to cut costs in every area of my life so I don’t have to struggle as much to get by. Single mommydom also opens up a whole new range of topics...
