MY 32 CENTS

THE HOUSE FROM HELL

haunted_house_by_hellonlegs-d30axnl

I loved my little house on the hill. It was an older home in need of renovation, but it was quiet and peaceful with a wonderful sense of openness, and it always felt like home. So when we had to sell our little house on the hill after my husband lost his job, I was devastated. Continue reading “THE HOUSE FROM HELL”

POLITICAL POSTING

4b01192cdef9d3a1849a6fcb88e4c159

Election season. The time when the majority of Facebook users decide to vocalize their political views, participate in endless arguments, ruffle the feathers of friends, family, and foes, and altogether go a little nuts! I know. I’ve gotten caught up in the madness myself. Many times. Continue reading “POLITICAL POSTING”

NEVER CALL A WOMAN A TRAMP

#TRAMP

I recently saw this hashtag about JoJo Fletcher, America’s most recent Bachelorette, on a friend’s Facebook post. Having watched several episodes of The Bachelorette, this young male writer was appalled by JoJo’s behavior and took to his keyboard to express his disdain. While I don’t believe the author of the hast tag meant to be unkind, I felt irritated with this young man because he broke a cardinal rule of Christian, gentlemanly behavior, which is… Continue reading “NEVER CALL A WOMAN A TRAMP”

November drew near.
Last insults were spoken.

THE BENEFITS OF NOT LAUNCHING OUR ADULT CHILDREN

title845872656-1

Our oldest son Joshua, at the ripe old age of 24, has finished his undergraduate degree, his graduate degree, all of his CPA exams (which are the accounting world’s equivalent to bar exams) and has landed a promising job with a prestigious accounting firm in the Los Angeles area. This is a great accomplishment for such a young man. But what makes Joshua’s accomplishments even sweeter is something truly momentous that happened this past weekend.

THE 5 VOTING POINTS FOR ELECTING A PRESIDENT

Vote!

I am often amazed and saddened by the criteria used by many people to select a candidate for president of the United States. Some Americans choose a candidate based upon his or her television commercials, political rhetoric, or debate performance. Some people base their choice on their friend’s opinions. Others vote solely on

MY FIRST YEAR OF BLOGGING: THE JOYS AND THE TIERS

“Twelve people have read my blog!”

During my first couple months of blogging, having twelve people read a blog post made me happy. I knew that building a successful blog that generated thousands of views would take time, lots of time, and that it may not even happen.

But then it did happen. A few months after starting My 32 Cents I wrote a little blog post called “The 5 Tiers of Homeschooling” and suddenly I had thousands of people viewing my blog. Continue reading “MY FIRST YEAR OF BLOGGING: THE JOYS AND THE TIERS”

What I Don’t Want for Christmas

While holding on for dear life as one of my boys drove me over to Wal Mart to purchase a new iron, I asked my son why he had a sudden desire to accompany me on my shopping trip.

“Well mom,” he smiled proudly, “since I’m working this year and have a little money to spend on gifts I thought I’d buy you this iron as a Christmas present.” Continue reading “What I Don’t Want for Christmas”

THE CURSE OF THE BAD WORSHIP TEAM SINGER

Remy, the delightful and culinarily gifted rodent in Ratatouille, once replied to the statement, “Anyone can cook” by saying, “Well, yeah, anyone can, that doesn’t mean anyone should.” Wise words. Words that can be related to other areas of talent, as well. Continue reading “THE CURSE OF THE BAD WORSHIP TEAM SINGER”
