Work & Family

January 21 2007 Work & Family Newsletter

Greetings Work and Family Members,

If you have not shopped in a consignment store, this may be a good time to think about it. You will save money, and perhaps make extra money once you understand how consignment shopping and selling works.

*Consignment Shopping for the Family*
That consignment place you pass every day does look interesting, but you are not sure if you want walk into the shop, however cute the name.

Did you miss last week’s articles?

*Cyber Safety for Kids*
Cyber safety for children can be difficult. Just when you think, they are safe something else pops up.

*On The Job - Managing Your Anger*
"Anger Kills", an excellent book written to help us understand and manage our anger.

*Quote for Inspiration*

On goals:

It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey that matters in the end.
—Ursula LeGuin

Something to think about:

I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine marriage and a career.
—Gloria Steinem

*Making Ends Meet*

When I was a child, my mom devised a way to keep me quiet and happy. She saved small soap ends to make bubble blowing liquid and used an empty thread spool as a bubble blower. If you would like to try this, put soap ends in a small jar with a small amount of water and shake, it will take some time for the soap mix to reach a very thick consistency, but once you have it, you can add more soap and water and it will keep indefinitely. The empty thread spool is the bubble-blower. A child will have fun with this because ‘mommy made it’. A friend tells me that she bought a jar of bubble mix with a wand from the dollar store, and now uses dish wash liquid to refill the bottle when it becomes empty.

Visit for more content. In addition, to participate in online discussions, visit the Work & Family community forum. Do you have a goal or goals for 2007? Please share with us.

As always, feel free to send this and other Work & Family articles to family and friends.

Be careful, be safe,

Vannie Ryanes, Work & Family Editor

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. —Erma Bombeck
