Chargers Have Left – Now How Do I decorate?

The Charger’s Have Left San Diego, Now How Do I Decorate?

Many readers know, I live in a Charger house and am a native San Diegan, and for me there was no other team to get behind but the San Diego Chargers.

Since the news broke that they are leaving I have done a lot of reading and had many discussions. For now the Chargers are still the Bolts, and the team colors are still yellow and blue – this could change down the line, but now it remains (I believe they just went through a uniform change a couple years ago, and the NFL rules state that changes can be made every 5 years).

Jason is a born, bred and lifelong fan and never planned on supporting another team. As he put it, he has 40+ years invested in this team, players and history and 100 mile move would not change that. As for me, I am a hometown girl.

Cremo Company: Men & Women’s Shaving Cream Review

Cremo Company: Men and Women’s Shaving Cream Review & Giveaway

There are certain lessons and teachings that since I was raised by a man that I missed. These are few and far between now that I am older but equally important to my daily life.

The lesson that I missed out on was about shaving. I took all my shaving lessons from my father while he shaved, and relied on my close friends for further teachings. One of the things that I learned is that it is frowned upon when women are shaving that they not use cream of any kind. The result is razor burn, and at times an uneven shave.

This has been a system of trial and error for me with, not only razors, but also shaving creams. I experiment with different brands and try to find the one that will give me a simple and clean shave. Recently I have came across a company called Cremo Company that happens to make concentrated shaving creams, which means less of the product is needed to give a good shave.

Pet Remedy: Spray and Diffuser Review

Pet Remedy: Spray and Diffuser Review + Giveaway

There is confession that needs to be made – we have a problem cat. Our boy Murfee is a handful and a half – for more than one reason.

We adopted Murfee at 9 weeks old from the local Humane Society. We originally adopted him because the other cat in our house was rough playing with us and we read that getting them a buddy can break this behavior. From the moment we brought Murfee home he has been the opposite of a sleeper – he is awake 20+ hours a day!

We have given this thought and consideration, and we think it is a simple reason – he does not want to miss any excitement in his house. I know this sounds silly, but 4+ years later we still are left with more questions than answers.

This leaves many hours, while his sister Maggee sleeps, we look for answers. There is one  ruling criteria for products we use – no medicines or doctor prescribed remedies. Since we have heard positive things about diffusers I was eager to try Pet Remedy’s Diffuser and Spray.
