I Found It

I’ve heard bits and pieces of this saying for many years, but I’ve never been able to find the whole thing. My best friend sent me another cute email today and at the end of it was this saying! Finding this was the best thing to happen to me all week.

Work like you don’t need the money.

Love like you’ve never been hurt.

Dance like nobody’s watching.

Sing like nobody’s listening.

Live like it’s Heaven on Earth.

The Fast Forward Academy

I have been contemplating taking a tax class and then take the much talked about tax preparer exam and then during tax season I could get one of those tax preparer jobs that so many people have turned to in order to generate some income into the household.

I like the fact that a tax preparer only has to work part of the year, so that leaves a lot of time left in order to do the things that so many working mothers need to take care of these days. I would love to be able to help friends and family with their tax questions and their tax forms at no charge, as well as learning a whole lot in order to get my taxes done with the best return possible. That would just be so worth it and so cool. I am going to start looking into this real soon.

Welcome November

The weather does not really feel like autumn yet, but here it is November already. I don’t like to count down until Christmas, but it does seem like there is a sense of urgency to get into the spirit of the holidays.

I am focused on Thanksgiving now and will do a little bit of Christmas shopping here and there until after Turkey Day. We also have Veteran’s Day to celebrate this month. And I’m sure that one night, very soon, I will have to resort to turning on the furnace and getting heat in the house to stave off the chilled night air.

Try White Vinegar Instead

My sister just told me that I could be using white distilled vinegar instead of liquid fabric softener in my washing machine that works just as well as any fabric softener around. I thought she had fallen off of her rocker at first but then I decided to go ahead and give it a try and lo and behold she was right. Now how cool is that? It is much cheaper and is better for the machine!
