Tue, 20 Mar 2012 19:56:38 GMT

Don't you hate it when your computer goes on the fritz?If you're anything like me, you depend upon it - a great deal! There's the stuff I've got to do for work, there's the stuff I need to get done for our household and, of course, there's when my daughter needs to use it for schoolwork.All fine and good until something doesn't work right. And you can't even tell what's wrong when it comes to your computer, can you? It's not like smoke starts coming out of it (hollywood notwithstanding); heck so [...]

Period.That means that my husband and I have tried to cultivate an environment of res [...]

I have a friend who just gave birth to her 4th child. Her other children include a toddler, a preschooler and a school-age child. A potty training child is always on this woman's mind. She confessed to me that she was trying to get the toddler potty trained before the new baby arrived - something I have also tried to do with no success.Well, maybe I should amend that.
