  1. Relationships
    I'm confused. All my life I dreamed of reaching the top of my career. Now I have such a chance. But for this you need to move to another state, because there is only a place for a top manager. My current husband is against this move, since all our relatives are here. And I've always wanted to...

    Hey Everyone, I just purchased two books that Dave always recommends-Dan Miller's "48 Days to the Work you love", and Jon Acuff's "Quitter". Witch one should I Read first?

  5. Drugstore & Grocery Store Deals/Product Reviews
    While I was shopping this morning I noticed the store (Price Chopper) had marked down Stove Top stuffing to 69c a box. I was looking at the display, wondering if I should use my "buy 4 get 1 free" coupon when I noticed some of the boxes were marked "free coupon inside". So I looked at the box...

    As a SHAM If I am at parent teacher conferences with all the other working moms and dads and my phone rings ( on vibrate of course) and realize that it is the repair man finally returning my call. Do I get to excuse myself saying "It is work I have to take this" :rollsmile:cap::bow::lol:

    So I took a huge leap of faith recently. Left job, drove to other state, got to spend Christmas with family for first time in years. Had no clue what I was going to do. House up for sale, living in someone elses home... blah blah blah. Guess things work for a reason like they do...

    Thought this was an interesting article. The Case for a 21-Hour Work Week - Yahoo! Finance Having more time for family & other interests would be great. However, I really couldn't see this becoming common place. How many could actually make ends meet on half of their current salary? So, what...
  9. WOTHM
    When I was younger and life wasn't so complicated, I found it really easy to go to work. This was back when DS13 was a tiny thing and a lot easier to manage. But now, speed up to 13 years later and it's a mess. He's special needs, which means it's a lot harder for me to go to work considering...
  10. General Chat
    I have this friend that I've known for about ten years now. We'd gone through a long time where we didn't speak to one another for a variety of reasons. But I'd say that over the last nine months or so, we'd been talking a whole lot more. This friend is a long-distance friend but because they...
  11. Preparedness and Survival
    I'm one of three afterschool coordinators in my school district. We depend on (mostly) volunteers for homework help, we also have 2-3 workshop presentors each day. If one, or more, of my staff are absent, I usually can cover. But, my director is facing two possible long-time absences of...
  12. Support
    I posted part of this story elsewhere but I know that there's really good support in this forum so I'm posting here with more details. DH has always been a very happy and laid-back person who doesn't let things get to him, until recently. His salary was reduced (stepped-down many times) to...

  14. Christmas
    If you work outside the home (or if your spouse works outside the home), do you have a Christmas party through your employer? The water utility I work at has a potluck for all employees plus board members. I am taking a cream cheese appetizer with wheat thins, blt cups, and pumpkin spice...

    I know with the economy the way it is, I should be happy that OldMan has more hours. More hours = more money = less time with family. He is our hero... busting his butt 4 days a week and still putting in WELL over 50 hours... to a mandatory 5th day (which was suppose to be temporary). The...
  16. Sewing
    ~OK, somebody needs to join me today. ;) I should be easy to beat, I won't even be home half the day and the other half will be spent schooling and cooking. But I'm going to try to get in some stitching. I have so much that needs to get done! So here's how the work-along goes: -Post in this...

  19. Homesteading and gardening
    a neighbor said he would sell me his greenhouse for $50 but it may be too big to fit where we need it. I am so disappointed it needs work but I can see the possibilities.

    Seems lately there is always an issue for me at RA- my UP rewards won't print, the computer won't count the ones I'm trying to use from that last trip (that are not expired) or won't take my manufacturers c's etc. This next week they have feminine products of a certain brand for $2/6, get $2 UP...
