  9. Vacations and Travel
    Ever notice how you don't even use half of the stuff you packed into your suitcase/bag/carry on thinking you *might* use them while you're away? (Examples: books, magazines, work out clothes, dressy clothes 'just in case you get last minute/severely discounted tickets to a play etc) What are...

    My youngest daughter is now 17, graduating in May, turns 18 in September 2011. This whole school year, and last year, she talked about moving out when she was 18. This whole time I've mentally prepared to be on my own and come to terms with the stuff that goes along with that. i.e. end of...
  18. Green Living more 'regular' light bulbs after 2014. One plant has already closed. The LED bulbs are SUPER expensive.....can be triple the CFL....and they (cfl's) aren't cheap. CFL's are becoming more 'moderately' priced BUT: 1. shouldn't be used where the light is turned off and on...
  19. Baking Breads
