Are you a Princess or a Pioneer?

"In one of the books I was reading recently, there was an offhand comment about how there are really only two kinds of women: the princess and the pioneer. I was struck by the wisdom and insight in this observation, and the more I thought about it, the more it seems to really sum up how women generally handle life. We either are the kind who are willing to roll up our sleeves and dive into the business at hand, even if it is something we have never done before; or we are looking around for the people who are going to be taking care of us." (Nancy Wilson, Femina, April 24, 2008)

Dirty Dishes

Thanks God for dirty dishes,
They have a tale to tell.
While others may go hungry,
We are eating well.
With home, health and happiness,
I shouldn't want to fuss.
By the stack of evidence,
God's been very good to us.

Tricia's Vacation Tips

I love this post by Tricia. She gives some great tips for how to enjoy a family vacation(even when it is still lots of work for you :0). And, the best part...many of her great tips apply even on your own turf!

Yard Sale Treasure Map

Yard Sale Treasure Map is a really nifty site! You type in a town and it shows you yard sales in the area and makes you a map taking you from sale to sale. It even puts the description of each sale right on the printable directions. It uses info from craigslist to compile it's list, but you can add other sales manually. A pretty great tool...check it out :0)
