Did you know that in certain cities Von's grocery store offers delivery?

It's a great way for me to stock up on the Buy One, Get One Free specials. I also used my free delivery charge code.

Besides, the closest store to us is over 20 miles and a long bus ride.

We're Empty Nesters This Thanksgiving


Marcus and Me before he left.

Kiana went to visit her father in Salt Lake City yesterday. And since her father offered to pay for Marcus to go he went too.

So yesterday they packed up and left for their trip.

The apartment is so quiet and clean. No sounds of XBox games, no pile of dirty dishes in the sink, "Mom" or "Rona" being yelled and no size 15 sneakers to fall over in the hallway.

It will be nice to have the place to ourselves for the next week. We're planning on eating out on Thanksgiving.

But we do miss the teens!

Show Us Your Bathrooms at Kelly's Korner

Kelly's Korner had Show Us Your Bathrooms last Friday.

Our apartment has 2 full bathrooms. The hallway bathroom doubles as Kiana and Marcus' bathroom and guest bathroom.

Most of the decor actually came from Terry's Village.


We're fans of blues, grays and creams. And since we move frequently and never know how many bathrooms we might have it cuts down on new purchases.


My husband and I are happy to have a master bathroom. This is our second apartment that had one. We love it!

What Do You Think of Brandy Being Eliminated from Dancing With the Stars?

I do not even need to watch Dancing With the Stars since the media coverage is so good. While watching Headline News this morning they showed the video clip of Brandy being eliminated. And everyone's reactions. There was plenty of boos from the audience.

I have to admit I was surprised.

Dental Insurance - Read Before You Buy


I'll never forget when we first moved to Las Vegas I decided to purchase a dental insurance plan for our family. I didn't read the policy before I purchased it. Bad idea.

Marcus was having several teeth pulled in preparation for having his braces redone. When I got to the sign out desk they advised me that I owed them $500. Marcus' procedure exhausted the yearly maximum!

High School Exit Exam Week!


Marcus helped Kiana study for her Science and Math High School Exit Exams this weekend.

Marcus explained that some of the exam questions are on topics that weren't covered in school. Since he had a knack for Science and Math he did very well.

Kiana said that she felt she did well yesterday. Today, she has her Math exam.

Praying Kiana doesn't get too nervous and remembers the material.

I Passed My Training Test! I Still Have My Work at Home Job!

Yes, I was stressing about this latest test. We only had 4 days of training and then testing. In the back of my head I know if I don't pass it I'll be unemployed.

So, I'm thrilled I passed and will be back to my regular work schedule tomorrow!

Have You Tried the Neti Pot? I Did and It Works!


I've been suffering from chronic sinusitis and migraines for more then 10 years. So believe when I say this when I heard about the Neti Pot I was skeptical.

When I saw their Facebook offer for a free Neti Pot and 2 sinus rinse packets I figured I would give it a try.

After using it this morning I have to say my nose felt so much better. Alot of the pressure was elevated. Charles, my husband, mentioned that I wasn't sneezing as much today.

If you want to get more feedback on the Neti Pot check out WebMD's article.
