Definitely Not Living Life to the Fullest!

Fifteen years ago I gave up on me and I have no clue why. I was 30 years old. My oldest was 4 at the time and I convinced the hubby that it would be a fabulous idea to move to Kingsland, Georgia. We had only been stationed in Virginia for 2 years at the time. Moving put us closer to my mom and my grandparents because they had all moved there in the couple of years before that time. I left a job that I was really good at doing to go to an uncertainty of work. The hubby ended up staying in Virginia for a year after we purchased our home in Georgia because he had to wait for orders to be able to move.
I've been trying to figure out how I got to where I am at now mentally and physically. Is knowing how we got somewhere important so that we can change direction and get to a different place? Was it the move to small town USA, was it the year I spent working 40-50 hrs. a week at a job I hated all while trying to raise our son by myself, was it the stress of trying to make 2 house paymen…

Bic Soleil Savvy Razor Review

About a month or so ago I received a package of the Bic Soleil Savvy razors to try for a survey. I thought I would share here my feelings about this product but I wanted to use them for a bit before doing so. What you will get with these is 1 disposable handle and 4 cartridges. There are no cartridges sold separately for this razor. After you have used all 4 cartridges you just throw out the handle.

I do like these razors but I cannot say that they are any better at removing hair than any of the other 3-blade razors available. My feelings are that as long as the blade count is the same there really isn't a huge difference between brands other than maybe cost. I also did not seem to get nicks or cuts like I have with some other razors that I have purchased over the years and definitely have not noticed any irritation when using them either.

I also like that instead of 4 disposable handles there is only the one so that will reduce some of the trash going to the landfill…

Hello 2013!!!!

I am hoping that this year is going to be vastly improved over the last year. Don't get me wrong we have been hugely blessed and appreciate every thing that we have been given. That said we have had some rough moments and I am glad to see the year end and a new one start fresh and new.

We are definitely not the type of people to make resolutions for each New Year because they don't hold water past the end of January so instead I'm going to just say that they are many things that we need to work on in 2013.

The biggest thing we are going to work on is putting an end to the chaos that our home has become by cleaning out & working on getting it decorated and looking put together. Something that I'm ashamed to admit has never happened in the 20 years that we have been together. Two apartments and 3 houses later and I have to say that I've never had one room that I was completely happy or comfortable in.

I also plan on working to find money saving ideas…
