Contemporary discussion seems to always pit the stay at home mom against the working mom. Read about the journey of a former stay at home mom who became a single working mom.
Today’s post is from a local bloggy friend of mine, Alicia from Fun Reviews and Giveaways. We met through MomCentral’s Chick-Fil-A Moms group, when we discovered that we (along with two others) lived in Virginia. Then, we both participated in our local Food Lion Frugal Cookoff. We will soon be promoting, attending, and reviewing a local show of Disney Live! Pirate & Princess Adventure. I have a feeling this is going to be a fun friendship. Take it away Alicia…

With the start of a New Year, many reflect on the changes we want or need to make even though we seem to make the same New Year resolutions each year.

It’s January, so New Year’s Resolutions are top of mind. Prepare yourself for success this year.
Habits are the basis for any successful change. Whether you have made a resolution to STOP doing something or START doing something, habits are the things you do without necessarily thinking about it or planning.
For me, that’s brewing coffee each morning to drink while I drive in to work and cooking dinner each day when I arrive home from work.

Tasks that I only complete once a year can cause me to forget all of the parts involved and inadvertently reinvent the wheel. However, with these eight checklists, I can stay on top of things.
