Raising your children

Thanks to Darwin Barton

There’s something to be said for raising your kids on a daily basis and that’s what I’m working on doing. A few years back my husband and I made the tough decision for me to quit my job and it’s been really nice, actually, since we’re able to have me watch the kids all day while he works. I love him to death but I wish he made a bit more money only because our life has changed dramatically in the last few years. We’ve not cut back on certain things like home alarm systems and the organic produce we like to buy but others like trash pickup and things like that had to go to make room for our new lifestyle. I don’t feel bad about it though because it means I get to be with the kids and do what I like to do which just makes me feel good about how I’m living my life. I know the kids appreciate being able to have their mom around!

Love my Garage

Thanks to Darwin Barton

Having a house is great. I love having a garage to park in, I love having separate room for my office and my husband’s “man cave.” I really love having a fenced in backyard for our dog and cat. I don’t love worrying about burglary, or fire, or flood. Life was most definitely a lot easier before I had any of these responsibilities. It’s funny that I so completely ignored my parents when they cautioned me to enjoy my “responsibility free” life when I was younger. I’m sure I’ll pass the same advice on to my future children, and I’m sure they will ignore it, just as I did. The one thing that saves my sanity is having a adt. This service allows me to worry at least a little less. I know my house is being monitored even in the event that I’m away when disaster strikes. While it obviously can’t prevent a fire, the service can ensure that the proper authorities are contacted when necessary. This is definitely another piece of advice I’ll pass on to my children—sign up for an alarm monitoring service!
