Impress Your Family With These Oreo Balls

Guys, this is the easiest thing you'll ever make, and it's awesome!  Impress your wife with these babies.  They're addictive I warn you.

Going To The Ex’s House For Thanksgiving?

This is my second Thanksgiving as a single lady.  My ex and I ended things in the summer of 2013, and with three kids it's been important to us to get along and maintain a good relationship, and let it evolve into something new.  We're both much happier apart, an although we weren't right for each other as spouses, we genuinely care about each other and have been able to find places for each other in our lives as we move on.  And I'm going over there for Thanksgiving!  Is this a good thing?

My three daughters seem to rotate the duty of asking for a new pet, even though we have a miniature schnauzer named Harry and he's a good boy and not in danger of losing his role in the family. When I point out that we could just settle in and be content with Harry, they inevitably ask, "Ok, but when Harry dies, can we have a cat?"

I don't know whether to be upset, or just be thankful that they are forward-thinkers who are already planning for the future and setting lofty goals. It's the little things.

I finally caved and bought a fish. I too love aquatic life and supported the girls in their $4 decision to invest in Maddox the Betta. But here's why I'm having pet regret.

Kids Cost How Much?

They’re out with those numbers again, about how much it costs to raise a child from age 0 to 17.

Parents will swallow hard. The US Dept. of Agriculture says it takes $234,900 to raise a kid, including food, shelter, and necessities. Depending upon your definition and your child’s definition of necessities, it could be $2 million, right? A kid has to have his Wii.

Texas is actually one of the cheapest places in the US to raise a child.
