The Cabin Cuddler

Do you do a lot of air travel? Well you've probably heard that airlines are cutting back on things that used to be complimentary. Like snacks and drinks and also pillows and blankets. They haven't officially said they are not handing out pillows and blankets, but they are phasing them out. And pretty soon you won't be able to find them on airplanes.

Also if you do end up finding one, it probably has been sitting around for awhile, and won't be very clean. You also might be wondering why do I need a blanket in the summer? Well if you've been on a plane lately you know how much they turn on the air conditioning. And it can be downright chilly on there. It's also when people are wearing T-shirts, shorts, and summer attire. Then when you get on the plane it's cold!

That's were the Cabin Cuddler would come in handy. It's a blanket (that is long enough to cover you're whole body.) And comes in with an inflatable pillow that blows up easily. It all comes in a handy tote bag that can be carried right on the airplane. And the tote bag turns into your personally hygienic pillow case.

When I went to Disney World recently, I was wearing shorts and a T-shirt, because it was so hot in Florida. Only to get on the plane and freeze the whole way home! This travel blanket really would have been great then.

The Cabin Cuddler also would be nice if you have a layover somewhere and get stuck in the airport. If you end up having to sleep in the airport, you'd already have your own blanket and pillow!

The Cabin Cuddler also could be used at work. Work in an office where they crank up the air conditioner? By the end of the day you're freezing. You could use the Cabin Cuddler discreetly at your desk to warm up.

If you get cold at work, the airlines or anywhere you really should check out the Cabin Cuddler.

Camping Tips



I'm camping right now, left Sunday morning and will be back sometime Wednesday, so, I thought I'd share some camping tips I thought of. Camping is a lot of work, but just like anything with a little effort, it can be worth it. And it's a lot of fun, too! And in this economy it actually can be a cheaper way to take a vacation. What hotel are you going to get for only 20 to 25 dollars a night?

Here are tips that I follow for a successful camping trip:


1.
Research. The first thing you should do when planning a camping trip, is do some research. Research campgrounds based on different factors. Asking questions like: Where do you want to camp? Do you want to stay in your own state, not to far from home? Or do you want to travel to another state? What activities do you want to focus on while camping? Fishing? Hiking? Swimming? Think of what kind of camping experience you want, and then research campgrounds that meet your criteria.

2.
Reservations. Once you find a campground that looks good, make a reservation. Sounds like common sense, right? But I have seen people show up at campgrounds, without a reservation only to be turned away. Why take the chance of driving all the way to a place, with a car full of stuff and probably some cranky kids, only to be turned away. Make a reservation! I remember when I first started camping about 16 yrs ago. Some places actually didn't take reservations, you did have to just show up and hope and pray you get a site. But today you can make reservations some places up to 6 months to a year in advance! And many are starting to take online reservations. So it really is important to plan ahead, especially on holiday weekends.

3.
Make Lists. Get organized. Organization is one of the keys to camping. I've been camping so many times, when I go shopping I have standard things I buy. After years of writing out lists every time I went shopping I know exactly what I need to get. But also now with computers I typed a master list of Camping Food I need to get at the supermarket. And I have a list of Camping Equipment, so I can make sure I don't forget anything. (see my one of my previous posts for a starter list of things you may need: Camping Equipment.)

4.
Make do with what you have. Even with lists and trying to be organized, there usually is always something you do end up forgetting. Don't get upset about that. You just have to learn to be inventive. For example last time we went camping, we forgot the colander. We needed to drain the noodles, so we just scooped out most of the noodles with a spoon and then drained the water carefully. If you forget something you need just try to come up with a solution using something else you have. That's part of the fun of camping!

5.
Make traditions. If you find a campground you like, why not make it a tradition every year to go back? We go on little camping trips throughout the summer. But then we do go on one big week long one too. Every year we say we are going to try somewhere different for this week trip. But we like this particular campground, so we always end up going there. We end up feeling like "it's nice there, we like it, the kids like it. Why go somewhere else we don't know is good or not, when we know this one is good. That's our tradition. Other traditions are always making smores, fishing, hiking, etc.

6.
Go camping on weekdays. I know it's easier to go camping on weekends or holiday weekends. I do that too. But if at all possible and you have some vacation time, plan your trip on weekdays. Campgrounds can be less crowded, quieter, and the beaches are also less crowded. I like people and like other campers, but sometimes it can be more fun if it's a little less crowded. The weekends get a lot more people and can make it noisier.

7.
Have fun! The last campground I went to listed a bunch of rules (which you should read and try to follow), but then they said the number one rule is: To relax, and have fun! Camping can be a lot of work, but if every one pitches in and helps out and can be a lot of FUN!



Happy Camping!

C'elle

C_elle_kit_image


If you knew you had in your power to possibly stop yourself or a family member from getting a disease, wouldn't you do something to help? Well now there is a way. Research is now showing that life saving stem cells are found in a woman's menstrual

C'elle is a company that is helping women to collect stem cells in the privacy of their own home. And these stem cells could be used for possible future treatments of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, MS, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Not only could women store these cells for themselves, but they could also be a match for there family members as well.

My mother had a small stroke a few years ago, and if either I or one of my sisters inherited the potential to get a stroke, then I may want to consider stem cell research.

If you want to learn more About the Science behind C'elle then I encourage you to visit their website, were you will also be able to hear C'elle Client Testimonial and were you could purchase their C'Elle kit during the "Caring is Sharing" get one free promotion. And start empowering your future and the future of your loved ones with this innovative technology.

Deposit Your Checks Online

I was just watching my local news, and there was a story of someone who was trying to cash their check in the bank. For some reason they gave this girl a really hard time about cashing her check. It was something to do with her ID. They kept her waiting for over 45 minutes before they finally cashed her check. There ended up being no reason for the delay. This poor girl just wanted to cash her check.

I've never been in a situation that bad, but sometimes it is a hassle having to go to the bank. Well now there is a new solution to this problem. A service called DepositNow lets you make bank deposits online. You can do this using an ordinary computer: Just pass a check or money order through a scanner, and transmit it to the bank electronically, without even leaving your home or office.

Unfortunately this technology is only available to banks in the United States. But to those in the US who are interested all you need is a special scanner for check scanning. DepositNow has actually developed there own scanner that is half the price of other companies scanners, and theirs also works as a scanner for all your documents. So you are getting a lot for your money.

This technology would be great for online businesses, or eBay power sellers, or anyone who handles a lot of checks. If you you decide to sign up use my blogs name: STAY AT HOME MOM as a promo code and you'll recieve $25.00 off the scanner!

Big Apple Awards III

"Hope is good for breakfast, but not necessarily for supper." Have you heard this quote before? Well that was the quote Mort Zuckerman the keynote speaker at the Big Apple Awards used. Mort Zuckerman is owner of the New York Daily News and Editor-in-Chief of U.S. News & World Report.

Hope is one of the ideas being used in the Obama campaign. What does that quote mean to me? Well I feel that if you have hope in the morning it can carry you through your day. And by the end of the day things might start to get you down, but if you can get up again in the morning with a renewed sense of hope then you'll be able to get through the day again. It's kind of like things always look better in the morning.

Take the Bills IQ Test

I just took the Bills IQ test. I didn't get a very good score. My overall score was a 63%, which is actually a D. I guess I need some help to become more financially fit.

To take the test you answer various questions about how you pay your bills and how much debt you have, etc. After they give you suggestions on how to get Debt help. What I learned about by taking the Bills IQ test is that I need to consider Debt consolidation. By paying off high interest credit cards first I could be closer to achieving Debt relief.

I also learned that I really should have some sort of plan with my finances. I guess a "mental" plan isn't enough. I should have a budget and be more in control of my financial future.

Right now things are a little tight around my house for money, but eventually I would like to save 10% of our take home pay. Bills IQ made me think about saving for the future, both towards my kids college fund, and my husband's and my retirement.

Bills IQ really had some great suggestions on how to turn around my miserable score of 63%! If you want to become financially fit and see how you score on the Bills IQ test head over to their website and see for yourself!

Abnormal Bile Pigment





For those of you who have been following my previous posts on some of my health issues, I thought I would give you a quick update. As stated in some previous posts my blood tests showed "slightly elevated liver enzymes."

Well I was to wait 6-8 weeks to a get a new set of blood tests. I went back this past Thursday (finally) for the repeat tests. I did not expect to hear back from them for at least a week. If it was to be like the other ways the Doctor's office has dealt with things, then I was expecting just to receive a letter in the mail.

But the nurse called me Friday night, around 5:30. This is where I get mad again at this Doctor's office! I was unable to answer the phone at the time, and shortly after checked my messages. The message said, this is so-and-so from the Dr.'s, please call back Monday morning after 8:30 AM!

Gee thanks for calling me so late on a Friday and then leave me hanging and I can't even find out what it is about until Monday morning! I was so #$@! MAD!!! Let's just say I didn't exactly have a great weekend! I basically worried all weekend on what they were going to tell me. How nice of them, couldn't they have either called me a little earlier in the day, so I'd have a chance to get back to them. Or leave a more specific message, so I would know what it was about. Or better yet don't even call me then until Monday morning!

So anyway, I called them back Monday morning. And the nurse told me my blood test showed I have "Abnormal bile pigment." Have no idea what that means, and she wasn't exactly forthcoming with the info to me. So I have to go back in another couple of weeks for another blood test. Then I will actually meet with the Doctor, at the beginning of August.

Maybe then I will get an answer to what is going on. Geez, it's like a mystery that either the Doctor knows the answer to, but for some reason they won't tell me. Or a mystery that I end up having to figure out for myself! It's like I'm not a Doctor but I play one on TV. I have been doing my own research as to what this all means. And I still think this is going to all lead to my gallbladder. When I looked up "Abnormal bile pigment," that is one of the things that came up. And that is what previously my research has pointed too.

Why can't this stupid Doctor just come out and tell me this, I guess that would be to easy. They want to make you sit around and worry. Well that's it for now. I guess I can't worry about it constantly or I'll go crazy. And like my husband keeps telling me, if it was some life or death thing they are not going to make you wait all this time in between all these tests. Gee that's comforting, kinda.

Walk for a Cure for Alzheimer's Disease

If you've had a family member who was or is now affected by Alzheimer's disease, than you know how difficult it is. My Grandmother in her later years was affected by dementia. She died about 11 years ago, and all though was never officially diagnosed with Alzheimer's, I suspect she may have had it. It was very upsetting to have someone you love, not remember you. And my Grandmother would talk about everything that happened in her past, but could not remember things that would happen that day. It would be great if researchers could find a cure for this debilitating disease.



The Alzheimer's Memory Walk is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. They are looking for Team Captains and volunteers to participate in the event. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to participate. There are walks in more than 600 communities around the United States. A typical Memory Walk is a 2-3 mile walk held on a weekend morning in the fall.

By participating in this walk you could help the Alzheimer's Association get a step closer to eradicating this disease, that effects so many people. And help families and their loved ones, not have to go through the pain of Alzheimer's disease.

Been In a Car Accident?

Have you ever been in a car accident that wasn't your fault? I bet you didn't know that you can re-coup the diminished value of your vehicle for up to four years from the accident.

After you've been in an accident, and dealt with insurance companies, even if you get your car repaired, the bottom line is that your car isn't worth as much anymore. This phenomenon is called diminished value. Diminished value is something that only a small portion of the population knows about. Diminished Value or DV, can be defined as the loss in market value of a vehicle that has been in an accident and repaired.

What the Insurance companies don't want you to know is that, Insurance companies are required to restore a vehicle to its pre-loss condition and value. Unfortunately, most consumers aren’t aware that they are entitled to diminished value compensation – and insurance companies don’t volunteer that information.

Advocate Auto Claims can help car accident victims re-coup the diminished value of their cars. And will give you a Free diminished value estimate to find out what you're owed!

UPDATE: What it is making her do this and since no one so far seems to know, is the bush was full of huge bumble bees! She did not want to stand near it in the first place, but I made her. Then when it got to much and she heard all the bees enough was enough! She ran!

Get IT Training with Cisco


When I was in college, oh gosh 18 years ago, computers where not part of the curriculum. We didn't even have computers at my college back then. I was still typing my papers on an electric typewriter!

Even at my job I had after college, we were still typing everything on typewriters. How times have changed! Now to be in the competitive work force you really need to have knowledge of computers. Someday I when my kids are a little older, I am probably going to re-enter the working world. And I'd really love to work with computers.

I really enjoy working on the computer. But everything I know is basically self taught. I would need to have some kind of training and even IT certification would really give me a leg up in getting a job.

I discovered a great program Cisco certification. They have a training program that can open up new possibilities. Whether you are beginning, changing or enhancing your career, Cisco can help you towards your goals. On their website you can check out other peoples personal stories how Cisco helped them advance their careers.

You can register right online and take a course in a virtual classroom. They have a wide range of IT certification programs, some include Routing & Switching, Design, and Security. I'd love to work in the computer field someday. It's been awhile since I've had a job, and in order to be competitive when I do start working, a Cisco certification would really help me to achieve that.

Happy Blogoversary to Me!





Today is STAY AT HOME MOM'S 6 month Blogoversary! I started this blog back on January 17, 2008.

In some ways it doesn't seem that long ago and in other ways it seems longer. I've learned a lot in the past 6 months. From the first days of just trying to set my blog up. Dealing with html (which I had no clue about), RSS Feeds, and just getting things to work right!

Now things run a little smoother, for the most part and I hope to continue blogging. I look forward to another 6 months when I can celebrate my One Year Blogoversary! Thanks all my new online friends for making STAY AT HOME MOM's first 6 months fun!

In honor of my 6 month blogoversary here is my TOP 6 Posts (according to me and one's I still get hits on.) Check out some of these posts if you already haven't. And thanks again for all your support!

Transform Your House with Renuzit TriScents!

Ts_version_2
I received my Renuzit TriScents kit in the mail. I was very excited to start using it! I opened the box and read the directions. It was very easy to assemble. And couldn't wait to try it out.

I knew immediately what room I was going to use it in. My cellar was where I knew I should put my Renuzit air freshener. My cellar is a play room and extra TV room for the family. My kids hang out there and watch TV or play video games. When my kids aren't down there, my husband is down there watching TV and relaxing after work. Sounds great right?

The only problem is that the cellar is also kind of damp and can smell musty. We have a dehumidifer down there but it doesn't always help. Also it gets more humid down there in the summer. And to top it all off, it's also the only place where I can keep my cat's litter box! When you walk down my cellar stairs, unfortunately, the first thing you smell is the litter box. Yuck.

I really am tired of the smell down there. But since I plugged in the Renuzits TriSents air freshner all I smell is Seaside Breezes! I love it! I walk down stairs and instead of being hit with the cat litter smell and mustiness, I'm struck by a great fragrence of Seaside Breezes.

Another thing about the Renuzit air freshner is that it has three different scents. Each sent goes off for forty-five minutes, and then changes to the next scent. Because did you know that when you get used to a fragrence, you stop smelling it? So having it change every forty-five minutes you won't get used to that particular smell, and you'll keep on smelling it! That's a great idea!

If you want a coupon for your own Renuzit starter kit then visit: http://www.triscents.com.
You can print a coupon so you can have the great long lasting smells in your house!

Home Run Derby




Anyone see the Home Run Derby last night? I really can't say that I've ever watched it before, but last night since there was nothing much else on I decided to watch it.


It was actually pretty interesting. And I really enjoyed it. Even though Justin Morneau ended up winning it. The real story was Josh Hamilton. He hit 28 home runs in the first round. It was awesome! It was one hit after another.


I have no idea how this Home Run Derby works but I think if you hit 28 home runs you should win the thing. I actually stopped watching it once he hit all the runs. Only to find out later that he didn't win! It seems crazy to me!


Josh Hamilton has a story too, I guess he overcame a drug problem and was out of baseball for 3 years. Now he's beat his problem and has returned to baseball. It really was something to see!

Wondering how ubid can do this? Well one of their partners has a huge excess inventory of iPods, so uBid is helping them liquidate them. And this inturn will give ubid costumers a great deal on iPods.

All Star Break


glitter-graphics.com


Yea! Red Sox are in first place again in the AL East Division going into the All Star Break. The Tampa Bay Rays did us a favor by losing their last 7 games.



The last few games by the Red Sox have been great. We swept the Minnesota Twins, winning one of the games 18-5! And the other day one of my favorite players Kevin Youkilis got his first career Grand Slam! YOUK!!



When Youkilis gets up to bat the crowed yells "Youk" the whole time he is up. And on TV and at the games it can sound like people are saying "boo." It's kind of funny the fans are actually cheering him but for those who don't know it can sound like he is getting booed. The game I went to last year the family in front of me was from NJ and the woman was like why are they booing him? It was funny!

I hope after the Break, one of my other favs comes back. David Ortiz, or "Big Pappi." It's looking good for his return after the Break. We need his home run slugging capabilities. I would love for the Red Sox to win The World Series again!

Last year my husband bought me a huge Red Sox magnet for my car. Someone I know said you must be a pretty big Red Sox fan, I wasn't sure at first how she knew or why she was saying that, but it was because she saw the magnet on my car!

The All Star Game is on tonight at 8:00 PM on Fox. With 7 Red Sox picked for the Team. That's more than any other MBL Team. Youkilis, Pedroia, and J.D. Drew, will be playing in their first All Star Game. Also for the Red Sox will be Ortiz (who won't really play), Varitek, Ramirez and Papelbon.

Well, that's my update on the Red Sox. Can't wait for the next half! Go Sox!

Being a stay at home mom, I started to try to come up with different ways to make some money online. I have joined a few different survey companies. I have found it a fun way to make some cash. Taking surveys and completing offers without any obligation from you, you don't have to payout any money, is a great way to make money. I just signed up for GetPaidtoTry and hope to make some money through this company too.

Some Sad News to Report





I was over at the blog According to Nessa, when I read some sad news. Serena has passed away, last Sunday. As many of you fellow bloggers know, Serena was a little girl with a rare form of cancer.
Her father created a blog to raise money for her treatment, and to bring her to the US for a better chance. But Nessa has learned she passed away. Nessa was trying to raise money through her Moms group she has to donate to Serena's cause.
It is sad that this little girl has died before she was given a chance. It was nice to see fellow bloggers try to help though. In my blog hopping (you probably noticed too), many bloggers either had posts about Serena to raise awareness, or had her picture in their sidebars, to link to her blog. It was great how bloggers tried to help.
My thoughts and prayers go to her family.

Information on Lasik Surgery

My husband wears glasses, and so does pretty much his whole family. It's definitely genetic on his side of the family. And I wonder if my kids will someday need glasses. So far they have good vision.

Lasik surgery was not an option in my husbands family, it just didn't exist. And my in-laws are past the point of getting surgery.

But someday my kids may need glasses. And when they're old enough they may want to know some LASIK information. Lasik surgery is the popular vision correction procedure and scientific data shows that 94.5% of patients are satisfied with the results.

Lasik surgery combines 3D mapping and customized treatment for the 1st all-laser technology. Not everyone is a candidate though. About 20-25% of people are ineligible. People with thin, irregularly shaped corneas or unrealistic expectations are not considered good candidates.

Those considering Lasik surgery should do there own research. They should talk to others who have had the surgery, get referrals for a good physician, and get an exam. An exam is usually around 2 hours and includes 3-D mapping, customized wave-front measurements of your eye and an examination of your corneas.

Lasik surgery is fast and nearly painless. Serious complications are less than 1%. Complications my include dry eye, halos, and double vision, these resolve over time. Or can be managed with drops to replace the eye's moisture.

Someday my kids may face the decision to get Lasik surgery, and with the advanced technologies, there is no better time to get it!
