    Changing the mood

    Posted on @ 3:37 am

    How about adding drama to your once boring room?  It would be nice to brighten up any room with mood-defining lighting schemes, add a soothing glow, complement a theme or just simply add the perfect accent with beautiful lighting fixtures.  I’m sure you already know that with proper lighting, you can enhance the beauty of your home.

    The lamps and lamp shades at Farrey’s will not only make reading tasks easier but will definitely rejuvenate your bedroom.  You can also save more energy by installing motion-sensor lighting fixtures which turn on only when movement is detected, then turn off again automatically. These outdoor pathway lamps and hallway lights waste energy and money.  And for your family room, a background lighting will provide you with a muted glow.  Their floor lamps comes with a dimmer switch that will allow you to control the mood of the room.

    Farrey’s  offers you with a wide variety of lamps including table lamps, floor lamps, desk lamps,  and torchieres in a wide range of styles and of course, at incredibly low prices. Choose from an elegant lamp to accent a coffee table to wall mount scones illuminating your entryway and garden. Click on the links for these great deals.

    My niece and her birthday wish

    Posted on @ 1:40 am

    It’s my niece’s birthday on May 12 and she’s turning 14.  I texted her this afternoon and asked her what would she like for her gift.  Would you believe what  I got from her reply?  She said she wants to have diet pills!  I was expecting a more “girlie” answer like a cologne or designer jewelry.  But diet pills?!?  And she’s not even overweight!  Argh! These teenagers are so different now.  Maybe it’s our fault because she keeps hearing it from me and her mom and that we wanted to try taking diet pills.  This young lady and I have some serious talking to do.

    disability insurance

    Posted on @ 1:37 am

    I’m sure many of you already have life or health insurance or both.  But have you ever thought of having a disability insurance?  It’s the first thing you should consider before even buying life insurance.  Reports show that we are seven times more likely to become disabled before the age of 65 and that our chances of suffering a disability during our lifetime are one out of four.  Consider getting one now, this will guarantee you won’t wind up in deep debt after an unexpected illness or injury.

    How much is too much?

    Posted on April 23, 2009 @ 1:59 am

    Our world today is starting to be very competitive, and parents who have high expectations always want their children to take uo top position in whatever they do, whether in their studies or in sports.  As parents, we naturally want our kids to succeed so we push them to persevere and achieve, but overdoing it may cause too much pressure and will do them more harm than good.  A child tends to breakdown and his emotional well-being is damaged when he fails because he doesn’t want to disappoint his parents.  Many of us don’t realize this could be too much for them.  To balance, follow these tips from the experts:

    Communication is very important.  Learn how to talk so your kids will listen well.  Don’t nag, it will only make the situation worse.

    Be realistic in setting expectations.  Some kids need a little pressure to motivate them, they do better under pressure.  But parents should know that not all kids are fast learners, so set realistic expectations based on their personality and interests.

    Know your child’s learning style.  Each child learns differently, some by listening or seeing, and other by doing.  Knowing their learning style helps you and your child develop good study habits, complete his homework, get the most from his education and enjoy quality time together while studying.

    Encourage but don’t pressure.  There’s a thin line between encouragement and pressure.  So thin that it is divided at the point where the pressure passes from being beneficial to the child to becoming the obsession of the parent.  Everyone needs encouragement and a little pressure to do his best but being compelled to achieve continuously above your capabilities is just too much.

    Teaching Your Teens

    Posted on April 17, 2009 @ 3:42 am

    For parents having second thoughts of giving their teens credit cards, I’ve read that debit cards may seem like great training wheels.  Your kids may use them without the danger of overspending and going into debt because you load the card with a fixed amount of money.

    But some say, easy access to plastic may prevent them from learning how to manage money.  So instead of a card, experts suggest opening a custodial bank account with your child’s money, one in your name that you oversee, with an ATM card.  Your child can then graduate to a debit card and get the hang of paying with plastic only when she has the cash to cover her new wardrobe.

    Bingeing Non-stop

    Posted on @ 3:41 am

    Just last week, I was telling you about the non-stop bingeing my family has been doing since the kids’ summer vacation started.  Those midnight snacks definitely added more pounds to my weight despite the fact that my maid went on vacation and I’m the one doing all the houseworks.  I started looking for diet pills and I landed on the nuphedra review. The review says it’s a classic fat burner with all the right ingredients.  I think this is just what I need, I don’t want to look like a blimp the whole summer!
