New Look!

I gave my blog a new layout and background. What do you think?

Other recent events. I have been reading "So you want to raise a boy" by W. Cleon Skousen. It is a great book that explains child psychology. It gives a overview of typical behaviors of boys each year of their life form conception through age 21. It's fun to read and remember thing my boys have done and are currently doing. It has also been good to see what will be coming in the near future. Obviously not all kids are alike, but the behaviors in this book are pretty accurate.
In October I started couponing. I have been enjoying the process of learning how to get a stockpile of items for 50%-100% off. The FREE items or the items that your earn money to buy are always the funnest finds.
My commute is over 2 hours each workday. I have been making good use of that time by learning from some great Podcasts. A few of my favorites are The Dave Ramsey Show - Dave Ramsey, 48 Days - Dan Miller, Get it Done Guy (Quick and Dirty Tips) - Stever Robbins, Get Fit Guy (Quick and Dirty Tips) - Ben Greenfield, Grammar Girl (Quick and Dirty Tips) - Mignon Fogarty, Nutrition Diva (Quick and Dirty Tips) - Monica Reinagel. Also I found out that The Ensign Magazine is available as a Podcast. That was a great find for me. I was able to listen to the entire Ensign in one day's commute. I was waiting for the conference issue to download. I got it on Saturday, and it didn't have the conference talks. I guess I'll have to figure out how to download those.

Other than that, my days have been filled with home school for the kids, waiting for our new baby to be born and trying to keep the "to do" list short.

Ok, I found the Conference Podcasts. Now I'll be able to listen to the talks, without having to stream them on my Droid. Now if I have to stop part way through a talk, I can resume from where I left off!
