7 Unique Housewarming Gift Ideas

Jul 23rd 2009 1:26AM I love the paint can idea!

When we moved to a new neighborhood, where our good friends already lived, they made a "Neighborhood Binder" for us. This had take-out menus for all the best places in town, maps, open gym, story-time and playgroup schedules, even garbage collection info. In the first few months we looked at it daily. Useful and thoughtful. My kind of gift!

Running Groups Keep Training on Track

Jun 10th 2009 11:13PM I did a 13 week 10K training program. Week one had us run for 30 seconds and walk for two minutes. I struggled with this. 13 weeks later, I'm running 10K without stopping.

I certainly couldn't have done it without the carefully planned progressions and the group support. I've met a fabulous group of women, and look forward to our regular runs and gab sessions.

I would totally recommend joining a running group. It keeps you interested and accountable. Happy running!

Sep 11th 2007 12:24AM In our city we have curbside recycling pickup. While recycling is better than trashing things, it's not as good as reusing. Thanks for the tips on all these uses. We'll have to go that step further and keep a few of them them out of the recycle bin.
