After a certain number of years together, this must be what they mean by spicing up the marriage, right?? Who’s with me?

What better way to pass the time and the years than by pushing the exact buttons you know lurk under the surface? (I realize that many of you out there right now either think I am evil or brilliant. It is a line I carefully walk.)

The Top 5 Problems with Resumes and How to Make Them Shine

If you’re a job seeker or thinking about looking, you’ve probably already given thought to your resume. That seems to be the first place we tend to go when we’re in that job search mode. I don’t agree it should be the first thing on our mind, though I do understand why. The resume is a representation of us as it relates to work experience and skills.

He was the chosen one for very specific reasons – at the time, our family was a bit light in the boy department so we thought a male would even things out nicely. My eldest son was obsessed with Super Mario, so when we saw a child who had the name Mario, it was clearly a good fit.

The kiddos feel very connected with Oscar Mario – they send him letters and art work,…
