Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

A Tip Here And There
With summer break rapidly approaching, I thought it would be a great time to re-mention a great website for teen job hunting. In addition, if your teen is interested in looking for a job for the summer, you might want to inspire them to get started as soon as possible because in addition to their classmates looking, adults and college students and grads are also out there or going to be out there hitting the pavement. Some of the listings below are for teens but others are for adults as well.
SnagAJob.com is a great place for you to help your teen locate local jobs in retail, hospitality and more. And grownups, you can also look for jobs there too.
While looking at various websites for jobs, I found something else that you might be interested in checking out. It is called camp hosting. Camp hosting is also known as work camping. Basically a couple with an RV can work at a camp doing things like maintenance, cleaning, and taking money from customers in exchange for a camp site for the season and often a monthly wage as well. These are usually seasonal jobs running from May to October. Want to learn more? Follow the link below to get some more information.
If you have a problem with an appliance and you want to save some cash or you want to keep your appliances maintained and save on repairs from letting things slide, you might want to check out RepairClinic.com. RepairClinic.com has tips and online assistance for appliance repair and maintenance.
Several months ago, I put in a recipe that I found for making your own laundry soap, and I thought now might be a good idea to give some recipes for making your own fabric softener. First make sure that you have a gallon container that you can put the mixture into.
6 cups of water 3 cups of white vinegar 2 cups of hair conditioner (I find suave on sale all the time and it comes in lots of great fragrances)
I have read that lots of people really like this recipe especially when they have family members with sensitive skin. I have also read that this works will with HE washers.
Of course you can also forgo the fabric softener and try dryer balls. I picked up a pair at Target the other day. It was $5 for two. Using them speeds up the drying process in addition to softening clothes. They are reported to last about 1000 drying cycles so this is definitely well worth the $5. I have read that tennis balls also work well for this, but that the nubby fingers on the dryer balls seem to hep it work better with drying time.
Want to get your hands on a full-sized Origins cleanser? Fill in and print out the form at the link below and on April 22 bring it and your usual skin cleanser (does not have to be full it can be empty) to your Origins store, and they will trade it for one of their fabulous cleansers while supplies last. There isn't one over here in Prescott, but follow this particular link to see if there is an Origins store near you (there are definitely some in Arizona).
Or you can enter below for an email, you cutie patooties!

Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
