This past week has been a welcomed change....the temps at night have been in the 60's....and even though the day temps...

    Interesting challenge. Must admit that I am having trouble with Penny's personality and how can you serve something that is burnt? What's your take on this season?

    So it's only the third week of summer break and I'm ready for the kids to go back to school. Everything I suggest they do is immediately shot down and if they do choose to do it, it lasts about 15 minutes. Kids ringing the door bell all day, they start to fight and go home. An hour later they...

    For those who are home during the day while kids are at school, what adjustments will you make to your daily schedule/routine during the summer break to ensure that you can keep up with your house?

    Don't forget as summer time draws near that many school provide (and a few other places) serve free breakfast and lunch. Where I live they have done this for several years. The first time I heard of it was when my oldest was a baby, I was teaching at the time. Here the breakfast in continental...

    I'm just wondering if its as bad in your area as it is here to try and find a summer job. My dd has 1 more semester of college and desperately needs a summer job to help pay expenses. With gas prices so high she will have to find something local because she can't afford on minimum wage to drive...
