Football Season is Back – Gameday Facts and Recipes

Posted by Louis on

So many things to look forward to now that football season is back – Saturdays are going to be chock full of college games, and Sundays are now exclusively reserved for the NFL.

As much as our non-football-loving significant others may not like it, the season brings days of eating chips right out of the bag, pounds of melted cheese and salsa in bowls, and beer bottle caps all over the floor. Sure, we could pick them up and toss them into the recycle bin, but why?

The Perfect Stories to get your Kids through the Big Move

Posted by Tara on

If you have just started looking for a new home, remember to keep your children involved. Help them feel comfortable with the idea of moving by allowing them to look at houses with you. Let them go online with you to pick out houses, and when you’ve chosen a new place get them excited by allowing them to pick out which room they might like or even choose a play room!

If you have already bought a house, you child is probably going through a range of emotions. Watching Mom and Dad pack up the current house is new and scary. If you’re concerned that your child is acting differently and is confused about what’s going on, try reading them some of these great books to ‘cope with moving.’

I’m Not Moving Mama by Nancy White Carlstrom. Ages: 3-8. A cute story about how the most important thing of all when moving is family.

Alexander, Who’s Not (Do You Hear Me? I Mean It!) Going to Move by Judith Viorst. Ages: 4-8. The story about a boys’ anger and frustration during a move.

My Best Friend Moved Away by Nancy Carlson. Ages: 4-7. A reassuring book about making new friends but keeping the old. Read More

“I was nervous about shipping this 300+ year old walnut secretary, a family heirloom, across the North American continent. The estimate was fair, and no “last minute” discovery of additional costs, etc. Very honest, direct, and straightforward and I was delighted with TSI’s service. Care in shipping was obviously taken with no damage.”
