sometimes there are too many rollercoasters…

emotional-rollercoaster Ladies, remember when you were little and you saw a rollercoaster for the first time?  Watching the ups and downs of the little cars on the tracks made you shiver in your little mary-janes……

Then you grew up and the excitement of that rollercoaster caused butterflies in your stomach, but you stood in line anyway?  Can you still hear the screams?

If you stop and listen………really listen…….you can hear cries going up all over our nation.  According to the Huffington Post, there are 4.1 million single mother families living in poverty and this number has nearly doubled since 1960.  Can you believe this?  What a sad statistic.

But guess what?  There is hope!  Author and friend, Pam Kanaly, has written a book called, “The Single Mom and her Rollercoaster Emotions” for the single mother facing those negative emotions that try to steal their joy.  Pam knows because she was once that single mother.  She has experienced first hand the challenges that single women are faced with each day.

So click on the link to “The Single Mom and her Rollercoaster Emotions” and give the gift of hope to someone you know that needs some encouragement and blessing during this season in their life!  You can make a difference!

even more tips to make your head explode..

Yesterdays tips were pretty cool, right?  Well, hold onto your face, because there are more ideas coming…

1.  Use a small paint roller to put lotion on your back! 

That’s just freakin’ brilliant…

2.  Can’t reach that item on the top shelf?  No worries!

Ok, my husband makes fun of me because I actually have been doing this!

3.  Unclog a drain

1) Pour 3/4-1 cup of baking soda in the drain. 2) Pour 1/2 cup vinegar in the drain and immediately cover the drain with a plate. 3) Wait 30 minutes, then uncover and run hot water for 2-3 mins. 4) Repeat for really tough clogs.

4.  Unclog a toilet

1) Pour 3/4-1 cup of baking soda in the drain. 2) Pour 1/2 cup vinegar in the drain and immediately cover the drain with a plate. 3) Wait 30 minutes, then uncover and run hot water for 2-3 mins. 4) Repeat for really tough clogs.

5.  Get rid of roaches

Place bay leaves in all nooks and crannies to keep the roaches away!

6.  Overly sensitive EMO smoke alarm?

Secure with a rubber band. Now you’ll never have to get on a ladder to turn it off every time you cook or take a shower.  DON’T FORGET TO TAKE IT OFF AFTER COOKING….otherwise you will be on the news, because of the fire, and look silly…

You are now officially informed! 

Now…….go do something.
