Powerful Diet Pill

I have been experimenting over the year with different diet pills, and I am happy to report that I have indeed lost some weight.  Though some of the pills have worked well, others have been less than wonderful.

So far, the most successful pill that I have tried would have to be Anoretix.  It is more than just taking just one diet pill – it is like taking nine.

Though the diet pills have gone over well, I think that my New Year’s Resolution this year will be to start some exercise – despite losing the weight, I still get winded going up stairs.

Getting a New TV for Christmas

It seems that every year that my kids take a priority over me when it comes to Christmas presents.  I suppose that it is the price to pay when becoming a parent, but sometimes I would like to be first on the list for a change.

As it turns out, our old tube TV died, so I will be first on the list this year when I get my new LCD TV – I can’t wait!

Making some Extra Money Before Christmas

Right before Christmas, I usually find myself a little short on money.  In the past I have borrowed money to fill the gap, but then you run into the problem of having to pay it back.

So, this year, I decided to check out what jobs in retail were available in my area.  I thought that by getting a temporary job, I could make some extra cash to make up for my usual shortfall.

I have applied for some jobs and I am waiting to hear back – hopefully I will have a job by the end of next week at the latest.

Wish me luck!

Finding the Perfect Kids Wagon for Christmas

Today, we have been out shopping for the perfect Christmas gift for our kids.  We didn’t want to get them toys this year as we know that their grandparents will shower them with toys and quite frankly, we really don’t need anymore in our home.

After a bit of discussion, my wife and I have decided that we will be getting our children one of the many kids wagons available on the market. Obviously, it is a good choice because our children our young, and we know that they will enjoy it.

I can’t wait to see their little faces the first time that they go for a ride in it – that will be priceless.

Learning While Driving to Work

One of the things that has bothered me for a long time is the fact that the time that you spend driving to work is wasted time.  This is especially true if you live in a busy city - quite often you end up spending at least an hour or two in your car each day.

But, I have taken advantage of some free audio books that I have found online so that I can either listen to a story, or learn some new skills while I am in my car.  Not only has this made my life more productive, but it gives my brain some much needed exercise.
