Sock Goblin

Around Halloween it comes as no surprise to see ghost, ghouls, and goblins out and about.

Yesterday, I participated in a fun filled morning with my children at preschool. One of the games we played was "Guess the Goblin". A child would hide under a black sheet and another child would go out of the room, then come back to guess which child was the goblin hiding under the sheet. This went on for a good hour, filled with laughs and guesses, until all the children had taken a turn.

Coming home, my little goblins and I went about doing our afternoon chore - the laundry. Sometime in the midst of when my children's socks were on their feet to the time they went through the laundry, a few were missing.

So, we blamed it on the Sock Goblin.

Who knows, maybe you have a Sock Goblin in your house too. How else can we explain why at the end of doing the household laundry that socks are left without matches? My preschooler has decided that the Sock Goblin eats socks, while my other children feel the Goblin simply wears the socks and we get missing socks when the Goblin needs a new outfit.

Whatever the explanation, all I know is I've got a growing accumulations of mismatched socks. So, why doesn't the Sock Goblin take them instead of those which already have a mate?

Good question. One I'm sure my children would be happy to elaborate on during dinner when we often have discussion such as this. I'm sure, they will have a good explaination for it when I ask them tonight.

What kind of Goblins do you have in your house this Halloween?

Recharging Your Batteries

My sister-in-law contacted me last week wanting wish lists for Christmas. Christmas, I thought, it's not even Halloween!! But alas, I've been singing holiday tunes ever since and started making lists.

Recently, one of the things I've been thinking about getting is a LeapFrog Leapster and been doing my homework.

If your child already has a Leap Frog Leapster, or your thinking of getting one, then you'll want to check out this article on keeping them charged.

Let me know what you think.

Heating up Your Space

Whenever we get closed to the end of fall, when Halloween is upon us and Thanksgiving is just around the bend, I think about how going to heat up the house this winter and keep everyone warm.

Space heaters, if used properly, are a great way to heat up just one room while the rest of the house remains at a cooler tempature to save on heating bills.

Check out my latest article on How To Size a Space Heater.

2010 Daily Mood Organizer.

It's been a busy month as I've been prepping and working on getting the new 2010 Daily Mood Organizer ready for publication. I've been very excited about the new cover and finaly received it this morning. I couldn't wait to share it with everyone.

I should be receiving the proof copy here in a week or so, and the mood organizer should be available on Amazon before Thanksgiving!
