10 Tips to Getting Along with Critical People & Save Your Sanity

10 Tips to Getting Along with Critical People & Save Your Sanity

Critics are everywhere. No matter what you do, say, act, dress, or even breathe. Someone is going to criticize you. In the blogging world, it's like Mean Girls on steroids sometimes. You have to have white walls, perfect furniture, fur blankets thrown perfectly on the couches, pets are the perfect weight, breed, and colors, makeup is applied in the most recent style, and much more. If you don't do those things, brands, followers, etc don't like you….or worse…. say you're trash because you're not giving readers what they want....

What I Have Planned in 2018 For You On Life with Anna

I know I'm a little late to the “What's new for….. in 2018” game. But I figured I'd still post anyway! So far this year: I started homeschooling (through K12 and Ohio Virtual Academy) our youngest.

Making Family Memories That Will Last a Lifetime with the Globetrotters

Making Family Memories That Will Last a Lifetime with the Globetrotters

Making Family Memories are important. As a single income family, sometimes that can be difficult, however, in the last year, my husband and I have been trying to come up with ways to make even more memories with our boys. Especially since my mother passed away from cancer. My husband and I agreed that we needed to start doing more with the boys, especially since they were getting older (I'll have an 18yr old in 6 months, yikes) and will be out of the house soon. So now is the time to really kick those family memories into high gear! About two...
Your Child Does Drugs, Don’t Overact! It’s Not The End of the World!

Your Child Does Drugs, Don’t Overact! It’s Not The End of the World!

Are you concerned that your son, daughter, or family member is doing drugs? Is the prospect of having to take them to a clinic too horrible for you to even contemplate? This past week my husband and I had a sneaky suspicion about our oldest son doing drugs. We knew it wasn't anything hard, but knew it was at least marijuana. We talked it over and decided to drug test him to be 100% sure. I didn't make it a big deal and just told him “Look, it's just to be on the safe side and so I know what's going on in your life!” And that's the...

The Top 13 Legit Charities to Donate To All Year

It's my favorite month! NO SHAVE NOVEMBER! Heck yeah! It's the one month out of the year that men show their support for CANCER in general! It's not about focusing on one single cancer, it's about supporting and donating what you would spend on razors, shaving products, going to the barber to get lined up and more to your cancer charity of choice. Next month; December, it's the month of giving. It's not just presents to those in our family or our friend network, we really need to think about legit charities across the board as well. Many...

5 Reasons You Will Absolutely Love Udemy Online Courses

Not to long ago I posted on my own personal Facebook page that I was FINALLY going back to college. YAY ME! For the longest time I've owed over $10k in loans so I had to agree to paying back at least $25 a month in order to stay out of default. Sometimes, when you're struggling to learn but can't get back into the full swing of things, you can still learn, but without the high cost of college fees, course fees, books & more. I have a horrible problem with habit making and sticking to my habits. My adult ADHD causes a lot of problems with...
The 8 Most Important Things I Have Learned Over The Past Year

The 8 Most Important Things I Have Learned Over The Past Year

Growing up, I never knew what the most important things were in life, until I was forced to understand a year ago. Growing up I always had skinned knees & elbows from the crazy dare devil type stunts my friend Melanie and I used to do anytime we were around each other. Of course, it was always my fault because I was the schemer! I'll admit that! Melanie was kind of a goody-goody growing up! Me? I always had to push the envelope so to speak. I would always get grounded, things taken away, lose my bike, roller blades, or friend privileges....
