15 Etiquette Tips for Zoom Video Meetings

Since the Covid-19 quarantine, people have been working from home and having meetings via Zoom video conferencing with employees. Friends have been having meetings in groups and 12 Step meetings have closed locations and set up their meetings via Zoom. This means that Zoom has probably, literally helped save lives. It's amazing what technology has done for us. I am truly grateful. At a time like this, we need all the social interaction we can get. While social distancing, Zoom video conferencing has brought us together. We've needed human interaction for a long time. The Covid-19 virus has put a hold on everyone's life. We've made the best of it with activities and looking for homeschooling hacks. Today …

5 Homeschool Hacks for the Covid-19 Quarantine

I never thought I would be in this situation.  When I say "situation," I mean quarantining our family and worrying about catching a deadly virus.  For the last 10 days, we have been looking for activities for the kids during quarantine. And now, we are being forced to homeschool.  I'm not sure how I'm going to find time to blog and homeschool. My kids are more important though so blogging may have to take a back seat. Homeschooling is not something I anticipated.  But I will take it on and use it as an opportunity to spend more time with my children and make memories.  The Covid-19 virus outbreak will go down  in the books for sure. So, since I am only homeschooling due to school closures …

27 Foods that Last for Two Weeks

Survival food is something I really never considered, except when we had hurricanes in Florida. We always stocked up on water and canned foods but we all knew it was very temporary. I never thought about what kind of foods last longer. With all this Covid-19 news that keeps updating and getting more serious, I am finding the shelves cleared at the grocery stores which leads me to wonder how we are going to manage? What foods have a longer shelf life? Are there certain foods that will last longer than others? There are some fresh groceries that will last for two weeks. However, I was interested in knowing what kind of foods can be stock piled. Here are some items that will last …

15 Easy DIY Easter Crafts for Kids

Easter is around the corner and I am trying to drum up some new DIY Easter crafts for the kids.  They love Easter, more than Valentine's Day, so we try to make it a big deal in our house.  We don't do big Easter Baskets, but instead we get crafty.  That's not to say they don't get a ton of candy and chocolate for Easter but Easter Baskets are not the priority in our house. Last Easter I did a couple of fun Easter Crafts with my boys, like the DIY Bird's Nests Easter Treats and the DIY Bunny Pops. The Bird's Nests were just an excuse to get sugared up! But the best craft we did was the Keepsake DIY Painted Eggs. This is an awesome craft …

How to Make an Easy DIY Leprechaun Trap

St. Patrick's day is approaching and lately, I've seen DIY Leprechaun traps floating around the internet. I'm curious about how one truly catches a Leprechaun. Apparently for Leprechaun's, it's all about finding the Pot o' Gold at the end of the rainbow. And whiskey, I hear. Plus, it's a great St. Patrick's Day activity for the kids. Anything sparkly with rainbows will seal the deal with kids. So, let's get a crackin.' I did a little research on what Leprechauns are attracted to and found that they love shiny things, flowers, and dandelion tea. It seems to me that the modern day Leprechauns also like Lucky Charms. So now I had to figure out how to build an easy DIY Leprechaun Trap. And I don't do …
