  • To juggle work and family the Main thing I have is my organizer......and a Mini van..:-) ...Still its not fool proof but working on it for sure!!!! Quick stress reducer is giving myself a time out (when possible) or sitting in the rocking chair on my front porch just to catch my breath! Me time....still far in betweeen.....Will def take advice on this one.

  • At the end of the day, almost everyday, I relax in a tub full of bubbles with an aromatherapy candle and listen to Delilah! It so nice to hear I am not alone with all of my problems. This is the only thing that has gotten me through some very rough times after losing my job. I can clear my mind or straighten out my thoughts and just "be". I just found a new company recently that makes awesome aromatherapy candles and I truely have to say that they are the best chaning my mood!

  • My daughter loves the videos on the sesame street website. We will plop down on the couch with the laptop, and I open one browser window for her on one side of the screen and one for me on the other. She can watch the videos, I can check email or just surf the internet, and we get some cuddle time together.

  • I like cash-back sites like Swagbucks. They give users opportunities to earn cash for doing tasks, like product reviews, surveys, watching videos, and paid product trials, on top of their shopping cash-back rewards. Use for a referral credit. I earn about $200-$275 extra per month, plus anywhere from another $50-150 for product and television show trials, if your demographic is good. You won't be able to quit your day job, but it pays for groceries, gas, and savings for Christmas presents. My husband and I both have full time jobs, but every little bit helps in this economy, and I like how easy it is to earn a little extra spending and savings cash. See for more info, if you want to lurk for a while and see how other Swagbucks users are doing. Below is a screenshot of my dashboard with my lifetime earnings. I've been a member for a year-and-a-half, and I've earned a little shy of $5,000, not including product/television trials, because those pay directly to you via email (Paypal or Amazon), not through Swagbucks.
