Story Time!

I always worry that my son will not have enough Social Skills, or have learned enough before he attends school so when opportunities come up like Story Time I jump on them! Storytime is an event at one of our libraries once a week that is FREE. Every Wednesday morning from 10:45-11:15ish we sing songs, interact with other kids around my son’s age, and do a little activity.

Today we sang nursery rhymes about colors, thumbs, bears, bees, and many more. After the songs, we read two books about dinosaurs! My son LOVES dinosaurs which made him very involved.

After the two stories about dinosaurs, all the kids were given an ice egg. Inside the ice egg was a dinosaur we had to “hatch”. My son was given a cup of hot water and a paintbrush. He would then use the paintbrush to “paint” hot water on the ice egg until it melted, and the baby dinosaur came out! My son hatched a green stegosaur, which happened to be one of his favorite dinosaurs!

We love to attend story time when we can, it’s always fun to find a kid-friendly activity to do around your home. Check your closest library to see if they have one!

Update your Resume in 2018!


It can get to a point in life where you have been in the same job for a while and have gotten everything you can out of it. And so you become stuck in a rut where the only thing that is making you walk through the door every day is the fact that bills need to get paid. But what is really stopping you from trying something new? Maybe there’s a new area, connected to the job you already do that you can move into, or perhaps it’s just the company you work for. Maybe you need a whole new career path and begin again. However you go about shaking things up, you need to make sure your resume is up to scratch.


Up To Date


It’s a good idea to keep your resume up to date regardless of whether you’re looking for a new job or not. Even if it’s just a note stating the day you started your role, dates if any promotions, and the extra responsibilities or training you have received. That way there’s no guesswork, and you won’t miss anything out. But it’s not just your employment history you need to modify; look at your cell number, home, and email address – are they correct? Have your objectives and hobbies changed since you last edited your resume? And, if you do include an image, is it a recent one? Your resume is an outward statement of who you are now and not who you were five years ago.




To give your resume a boost, and to provide you with an excellent hobby that has nothing to do with work, consider volunteering. There is a whole range of things that you can do that might or might not link in with your chosen career path. Volunteering on its own shows a willingness to go beyond the basics, to spend your time helping others. It can show leadership, initiative, teamwork, and care. Which all goes a long way to an employer. If you are looking for a promotion, perhaps your volunteering invokes getting involved in new projects and spending some of your time working on them. If you’re looking to move into zoo keeping, for example, volunteering with animals at a shelter, vets or farm will work in your favor.




If you have plenty of experience in the area you’re moving into, then you shouldn’t really need any more qualifications. If you do, it will quite often be something the company offers to provide. If you’re looking elsewhere, then you might need to look at adding to your education. If you want to move into public service, then doing an online criminology BA would work wonders. As would a degree in social care if you’re going to move into social services. Quite often you can find that future employers are happy to allow you to study alongside your new job, so never think that you can’t apply for something just because you haven’t finished studying. You might get lucky and have them offer to pay for your course – who knows?




Everyone has different skills to their name. However, there is a list that pertains to pretty much anyone who has held down a job, and done well in it, for more than a couple of years:

  • Team Player
  • Time Management
  • Organization
  • Time Keeping
  • Meeting Deadlines
  • Multitasking

If you have worked with money, you can add ‘money management’ to the list, if you have led a team then add ‘team leader’. They might sound simple, but a list of viable skills such as these gives any potential employer a good insight into how you work. You should also rank your skills according to what you feel is more important to the role you’re applying for. A job as a manager would need leadership and organizing right at the top, for example. If you have any critical skills with computer programs, add them to your list. And not all of your skills need to be work-related; adding that you play the violin to the list shows perseverance, hard work and that you have a hobby.

Make the most of your mirrors

A bathroom is a place where people want to be able to see themselves for shaving and removing make-up. Most people settle for a small mirror above the sink or plated onto a bathroom cabinet, but it could be worth considering an entire floor-to-ceiling mirror. Large mirrors can help to provide the illusion of space to a poky bathroom, whilst also letting in more sunlight. The mirrors that have a nice border always look great in bathrooms and gives it the extra spunk. Mirrors may eventually get mottled over time so keep them polished up.


Picking plants for your Bathroom Window

Tropical plants cause a nice calming nature touch to your bathroom! Tropical plants you may ask?? It is suitable for the conditions of a bathroom with the humidity and low levels if sunlight. These plants might include anthurium which has a waxy leaf and comes in so many beautiful colors. Some more might include aloe vera, bamboo, begonia, and Boston ferns. There are so many options for picking out tropical plants for your bathroom. They can keep your bathroom calming with a naturally fresh aroma. You will not want to skip this idea.


Sometimes less is more

Neutral bathrooms are in. Whites and light browns are clean colors that can help to make the room feel fresher and more sanitary which is important when you are trying to bathe or take a shower. Not a lot of people are a fan of bright colored tiles, toilet seats or sinks in the bathroom so putting into consideration for adding a more natural alternative to your bathroom. Pops of color can sometimes work such as a matching turquoise bathroom mat and towels. What you don’t want is brightly colored fixtures and walls, you want it to be more natural to sooth the mind.

Research Verified Review

I always assumed that I was going to be one of the lucky ones, never losing my hair, it slowly getting peppery with age, like my brother and grandfather. I mean you’re supposed to get your mom’s dad’s hair gene, right? Not so much in my case. I started losing my hair my freshman year of college. My roommate and I would do ab workouts on the floor in our dorm room. One Saturday when we were cleaning my roommate, who was sweeping, noticed a lot of hair on the ground. Dark, brown hair. My hair. And so, began my life of losing hair. It comes in spurts and the older I’ve gotten the shorter the periods between the hair loss have also gotten. I’ve tried changing my diet, using shampoos designed to help stop hair loss and improve hair growth, as well as taking vitamins. Nothing has made a real difference. So when my girlfriend bought me the Hair Growth, I used it because I basically was out of options. After about a month, my girlfriend noticed that my hair was coming in thicker. And after two, I could see noticeable results. It’s been a lifesaver because unlike me my brother aged all peppery and a full head of hair. Now I get to make fun of his pepper hair because I’ve got a full head of hair. The product is super easy to use and beats the alternative of having expensive surgery. It’s simple to use and the results come surprisingly fast. If you’re having trouble with hair loss, I’d try this product. 2-3 months and you can have your hair back! This product has research verified reviews that give you honest amazing true opinions and results!
