What Back-to-School Resolutions Do You Have As A Mom?

Finley, the 1st grader, brought home the first homework yesterday.

She has to turn in homework every Friday by 8am, and if she doesn't she gets sent to study hall for the day.  Yikes!  So we decided that homework time would be Monday through Thursday at 4pm.  She has to sit down and do the homework before she gets the Wii privileges or before softball practice.  Homework at 4 is one of our resolutions.

I read about one mom setting the "no electronics after 8pm" resolution.  Do you have any?

Freshman Are Happiest At These Colleges

I remember my freshman year of college being pretty stressful.  It was leaving home for the first time, being denied the chance to get into the sorority that my mom had been part of, gaining what turned out to be the freshman forty instead of the freshman fifteen, and generally feeling out of place and not knowing where to fit in.  But other than those things, my first year of college at the University of Nebraska was great!

I ran across a list today of 50 colleges and Universities with happy freshman.  Did Boise State make the list?

Midday Crash? Take A Coffee Nap.

 

According to science, taking a coffee nap will give us more energy and make us smarter. Mostly. I'm one of those people who can drink coffee and sleep afterwards and I thought I was weird. Turns out, it's all in your timing. You can do it, too - even at work.

So How Much Money Do You Make?

Um, yeah.  Don't answer that ..Yet!

I read an interesting article in the NY Times this week that said because so much information now is out in the open with social media, we may be entering a time when salaries aren't quite as secretive as they have been in the past.

Do you know what your co-workers make?  If not, that may change soon.

One Mom Shatters The Breast Milk Record

If you have babies, did you breast feed?  I did it for ten months and by the end I was plum worn out.  It was a great bonding experience and I loved that part of it, but it was hard on a girl's body too.

One woman has set a new record for the amount of breast milk pumped, and the total is pretty unbelievable!

Really? Some Foods Can Make Us MORE Hungry.

I think I've admitted before that I'm a little OCD when it comes to weight.  I weigh myself every day and I freak out if I get toward the upper end of my self-imposed five pound window because I don't like how my stomach feels above a certain weight and I can't stand tight pants.  I was chubby as a kid and in college and a lot of my weight issues are no doubt tied to that.  On the positive side, it's made me more conscious of the things I eat and it's forced me to make choices that are consistent with health goals, and on the negative side it kinda drives me nuts.

Anyhoo, I just read that there are some foods that can actually make us more hungry.  Crazy! Are there any foods that can trick us into being full?
