I like to give out something good for Halloween. I don't want to be one of those houses where the kids leaving tell the kids approaching not to bother.
I am not particularly crafty. I am not like a friend of mine with four children whom I spotted last October at Jo-Ann Fabrics. She was getting patterns and fabrics to whip up four darling ensembles for the kids and a sexy little number for herself. Just last week, I went to a costume party dressed as Bea Arthur. I think you've got the picture.
I like to travel -- and a lot of the costs associated with travel have gone down. Eating out with several children, however, one of whom is too old to order off the kids' menu and another that is going through a growth spurt, can get pricey.
I need some help around here, and we already have a live-in. (That would be me, in case you're not following.)
Soccer season is in full swing and this year, I've got three players at my house. Yikes!
School is in session again, and with it comes new teachers, new friends, and the close contact that spreads happiness and cheer -- and other things that are not as nice.
All the coupon-clipping, rebating, and saving scheming came down to one important moment for my daughter.
