DIY Water Bottle Carriers and the Gift of Healthy Water

Our usual back to school activities typically include getting new shoes for the kids, buying school supplies from the list provided by their teachers and making sure the kids have a new outfit or two to start out the school year. The kids are allowed to have certain kinds of clear water bottles at their desks so this year I also made them all water bottle carriers so they could more easily carry their water and keep the bottles out of their backpacks to reduce the likelihood of wet books and homework.

Organizing for Family Caregiving

A few months ago my dad had throat surgery and was unable to swallow or eat afterward so they put a feeding tube in his stomach before the hospital would allow him to go home. He’s much more comfortable healing at home but it’s been a very slow process and he’s needed quite a bit of assistance and care from the family. There is a home health care service that sends a nurse to the house a couple times a week to check his progress, but my mother takes care of all his daily needs and I enjoy being able to assist her or relieve her whenever possible.

How to Put Together a Race Day Survival Kit

Car racing is practically a way of life here in the Florida panhandle. I remember going to the race track every Friday night as a kid and now we live close enough to the speedway that we can hear when they are racing.
