  • On my drive home I listen to...nothing. I turn the radio or CD off and just enjoy the peace. By the time I pick-up my daughter some of the nerves have unwound. The radio stays off for the rest of the drive home and my daughter & I talk about her day.

  • Just to clarify on the previous post on the prepare then share emergency supplies. By getting a membership to receive it all at wholesale. You are not obligated to sale a thing. There is just incentives if you share this information at 50.00 a person. This is just a way to help individuals, families, and communities get prepared for the unexpected at a wholesale cost. I just wanted to explain in the post below some of the incentives they have if you share the information.... It's an amazing concept for a great cause.

  • Preparethenshare.com/darbygreen go to this website. This company offers all your emergency food and preparedness supplies at wholesale costs for a low cost membership fee. (Like a Costco). They even offer you $100.00 a month worth of Freeze Dried Food Storage with a 30 year shelf life if you join and help just 5 others to join. They will also give you $50.00 a person for those you personally invite and they become a member. (No limitations on how many you wish to invite) Therefore, your basically can get your food storage for free and earning money at the same time........ It has saved me oodles of money getting prepared for the unexpected. It's so worth it! If you have any questions or concerns. Email me at ignitinghealth.com........ I hope I can help you the way others have helped me. Thanks! Darby

  • One of the things I do when I get home from work is give the kids a snack and go into my bedroom for about a half hour and relax. I do this to give my mind a break and refocus before I tackle house chores, cooking, etc. Once I feel rejuventated I can do more than if I came home with frayed nerves.

  • I remember more than a few times calling my mom and being so upset because I couldn't get my daughter to clean her room...it was like she was sitting on my last nerve.. My mother said 'Pick your battles'. I was driving and wanted to throw the phone out the window! That's it? That's the 'talk me down from the ledge' response from my mom? Then she continued, "Is this really the issue you want to get so upset about?" In the 'big picture', a messy room is a 2 on a scale of 1-10. I hear her voice all the time 'Pick your battles'...and it calms me down. I always ask myself is it worth getting so bent out of shape about? or probably not. Moms...pick your battles! Melissa :)

  • The toy room! I was having such a meltdown every time I would sit down to read or watch TV and the toys were everywhere. Finally, we made the front room (kind of out of sight to all else) just the playroom and reinforced that it was where all the toys must stay. Now out in the sitting room, I can read and watch TV and never have to face that mess with such dread again.

  • I used to run home, change and get right into the family business of dinner and cleaning. Now I go to my bedroom change and workout. I feel much more relaxed when I emerge from my bedroom
