Beware the IRS Phone Scam

IRS Phone Scam

Yesterday I received a phone call from phone number 509-588-7291. I was on the other line, so it went to voicemail. When I checked the voicemail, I only heard the tail end of the recording which was basically “and a lawsuit is being filed against you. Please return this call immediately.” I figured I might […]

Easy Sponsorship Money for Your Group from Pear

Pear Sponsorships

If you or your kids are in any kind of non-profit group, you know that “fundraising” is not always “fun.” In fact, a lot of times involves trying to convince people to buy things they don’t need or just paying money out of your own pocket because you don’t want to participate. I’m always looking […]

Thank God It’s the One Thing We Agree On

man-in-jail

On a daily basis my Facebook news stream is an endless series of debates, discussions, and downright arguments. Some of it is all in good fun like sports fans trash talking. Some of it is pretty heavy but understandable like gay marriage and global warming. Some of it is even questionable how it can be […]

Using the iMagnet Mount for My Phone

iMagnet Mount for Smartphones

A couple of months ago I was approached by iMagnet to try our their Original iMagnet Cradle-less Universal Car Mount Holder. I’m one of those people who uses their Google Maps for direction more often than their in-car GPS because it’s just more convenient. So I was happy to give it a chance. I got […]

We’re paying for book rental, yearbooks, pictures, gym uniforms, choir dresses, iPads, art fees, activity fees, and a whole other slew of other things just to the school. Then add in new clothes, shoes, binders, folders, pencils, locker organizers, and more. It’s enough to make your […]

Sometimes Things Never Get Fixed

tricia-jimmy

I’m sitting at my computer trying to figure out how to respond to emails that I just don’t feel like working today because I can’t stop crying. The simple answer would be “My father died.” But that’s not really what I want to say. I don’t want people telling me that they are sorry I […]

Hair Products Make All the Difference

Hair Product Differences

When I was a teenager, I had poker straight hair and wanted it curly so badly that my mom permed it until I looked like a poodle. After I had kids, it developed its own curl and I wanted it straight so badly that I started flat-ironing it until it became dull looking. People are […]

Ugly Christmas Socks for Sports Teams

Ugly Christmas Socks

Last year I wrote about (and ordered for myself) the adorable Ugly NFL Sweaters that Fanatics was selling. Some of you were not too sold on them or thought they were a little expensive for how much you would wear them. I have found the perfect solution. Ugly Christmas Socks! At only $10.95 a pair, […]
