What Was Your Major or Career?

I am 3 classes from getting my associates degree in general studies. Then, I will have to declare a major when I apply to a university. I know what I don't want to do (I am horrible at anything math related), but have no clue what I do want to do. I will get career counseling and take a personality test (myers briggs) to help me narrow it down. But I wanted to know *real world* experiences in the job field and if it relates to your major at all to give me some ideas, because I am stumped. So, if you feel like sharing. What did you major...

Swimming Lessons--should I Do Them Myself?

I was a swim instructor for 5 years and (obviously) want my two kids (5-1/2 and 8) to learn how to swim. However, I've heard that you can't teach your own kids to swim and just want to put them into swimming lessons. My husband thinks that I'm being lazy and "not wanting" to teach my own kids, but I don't want one more thing to discipline/push them on. What do you think?

529 College Savings Plan?

Hello!!! I am wondering how I start to set up a 529 college savings plan for my son. Did anyone use anyone that was really helpful? I am not a numbers person at all so I look at all that paper work and go crazy! Since I work part-time I was going to try to get this done on my days off without having to get my hubby, who works full-time, to help me! Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.

How to Leave a Play Group?

I’m sad. My 3yr old daughter and I have been a part of a playgroup across town for a while. I’ve decided to leave it for a number of reasons. I have had a couple of situations with the assistant organizer, who has been extreamly judgmental and often just mean to many of the members, including myself. I have spoken to her, but kept it quiet as to avoid causing problems with the group, though most of the other mothers have expressed issues with her also. Now the organizer is wonderful and very friendly. Mostly, I don’t feel that this...

I am a stay at home mom with a child in kindergarten and one in second grade, I am considering going back to school or going back to work next year and one of the things I'm considering is Beauty School.
