#yoursandmine personal care 2
It is magnificent to know that even after almost a quarter of a century of marriage, you can still have great date nights and KY #YoursandMine I purchased at Walmart can help make them even better. I am many things: wife, mother entrepreneur, blogger, consultant and legal analyst among others. If you look at that list, you will notice that wife is listed first. That is because when all those other jobs are done and gone and I will still be married. Sometimes when I am fortunate, the work I do as a blogger with #CollectiveBias helps me in my role as a wife and when that happens things are fun. After all, how many jobs encourage you to go on a date with your spouse?

It is wonderful to find a piece of technology that makes your life better like my Samsung Galaxy S4 from Walmart Family Mobile and the Lowest Priced Unlimited Plans. This phone and plan make me #Thankful4Savings and thankful that I was introduced to Walmart Family Mobile  by #CollectiveBias. I have been using phones from Walmart Family mobile for more than a year. It started when we picked out a phone for my former Teenie Bopper (now she is the Spelie) as a reward for getting so many college acceptances. Later I got added a line for my husband, the accountant who is always concerned about saving money on everything we do. Recently we added another line so that my children would be able to talk, text and video chat with their big sister who is away at college.

ferguson and hope


It is terrific to have hope because sometimes, hope is all you have. When the grand jury decision not to indict Darren Wilson for any crime connected with the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO was announced, I was sitting with my eleven year old son in the living room. Before the decision was announced, my son said that officer would not get indicted because police do not get indicted for shooting unarmed black men, period. Like most people, we have followed what has been going on in Ferguson since Michael Brown was killed in August of 2014. When the verdict was announced, I immediately thought of an essay by Marcus McGhee called “An Essay on Niggers and Squirrels.” He says his grandfather told him that he saw white men go to jail for hunting squirrels out of season, but he never saw a white man go to jail for killing a black man.

You can find serenity in learning that it can be really fun to create a family game.  In most areas around the country, the new school year has either started or is about to start. At the same time, many families enjoyed the closeness and fun of the bonding and fun of summer vacation. One way to keep the fun going throughout the school year is to create a family game.

The great thing about a family game is that you do not have to create something with mass appeal. The only people who need to like the game are  your family members.  It also doesn’t have to be fancy. The game doesn’t even have to be creative or innovative. For example, if your family likes Monopoly.  Get out your Monopoly board and some small post it pads. Change the names of the squares to names of places in your neighborhood, places your family has gone on vacation or things you want to do. Do that changes by writing the new names on post it paper and sticking it on the original board. This way when your family plays the game you are playing with memories and dream. The game becomes real, personal and a place to relive or create some great memories. More »
