It’s still August, but the holiday season is right around the corner! Many people travel during the holidays, whether it is just across the state or across the country. Holiday travel can be quite expensive because the industry raises rates. With gas prices soaring these days, you are probably looking to save everywhere you can so you can get home to your loved ones.
Why 50/50 Custody Didn’t Work For Our Family
When my ex-husband and I split up in 2013, we wanted the best for Miss A (who was 5 years old at the time). Our split was, fortunately, an amicable one, so we were able to negotiate together to help make the situation as easy as possible for all of us. Ultimately, Miss A’s father wound up living in a different state for a year and a half before joining us in our hometown just over a year ago. During that year, he visited her very regularly — he was in town almost once a month, was here for her birthday, even flew in for a daddy/daughter dance, and chatted with her on Skype once a week, so he was still very involved in her life despite the circumstances.
Need to earn extra cash for Christmas this year?
Thanksgiving is on the horizon, but you may be already filling your head with anxiety about the impending Christmas season and all the gifts you will need to buy, parties to attend and extra expenses that are outside your normal budget. The good news is there is still plenty of time to make a little cash for Christmas before the big day!
I’ll eventually get good pictures posted instead of cell phone pictures — having some technical issues with my computer at home 🙂

Okay, not so wordless — This
card Angelica made is awesome. The front has a person at the top of a
mountain, a video game control pad, the number of levels beaten, and an
“LC” for “level complete”. The little person at the top if the mountain
is well drawn…but oddly looks like the grim reaper. And the back of the card has us at a birthday party. And
the inside…well, no, I don’t let her call me by my first name. But
it’s cute 🙂
It’s been a big week for Angelica! Today was her pre-k graduation! I could write a whole long post about it, but I took photos and videos, so let’s let them speak for themselves!
Happy birthday to my BIG girl who turns five today!
