  2. Bright Horizons
    The teacher pulled me aside today to tell me that they don't know if they can take Diva next year. because they don't have enough staff available to help her because she needs more educational help than they can offer. This school has the smallest student:teacher ratio available. She is...

  4. Home Environment
    I posted last week I wanted a puppy. I'm ready to adopt. I'm working on earning the money. I hadn't yet breached the subject with dh. As he's been grumbling about our doggie..lol. (she's a little bratty sometimes in his opinion because she minds me very well, and not so much him). Anyway, he...
  5. Christmas
    This might seem off to some, but we don't have our kids exchange Christmas gifts. I think Christmas is for the immediate family exchanging gifts, and spending good times and cheer with immediate and extended family. I'm looking to the future. My kids each have 3 siblings. If each of them have 2...

  9. Goals and Dreams
    I'm asking the question, how often do FV set goals? Daily, weekly, monthly, yearly? Maybe you set your financial goals 6 months-a year in advance? Maybe you set them monthly? Do you set your personal goals daily? Or do you set goals weekly and break them down into daily chores? This...

  19. Home Environment
    I want to ask a question about cleaning/organization within your home. So often, we read the helpful tip to set a timer when you are cleaning and then when the timer goes off, move to a different project or just stop altogether. I've never actually tried this (maybe once, but I don't really...
