Vacation a la King

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hampton Hotels. All opinions are 100% mine.

Finding an accommodation is one of the major steps one has to make when planning or going on a vacation. Why? Because it can usually take the most out of your allotted expenses for the trip or event. The Hampton Chain of Friends Sweepstakes is a thing to consider if you are still dreaming of that get-away. For any one and three of his friends, the chain is offering a daily sweepstakes for a free weekend getaway at any of the Hampton Hotels. All that you have to do is visit their site and enter the sweepstakes as prompted. Who knows, you can be that winner who'll get picked tonight!
There is nothing more exhilarating than vacationing with friends. You know each others' likes and dislikes, whims, perks, etc. You can talk to each other about anything, laugh and discover new things and enjoy everything that will come your way together. And all these for almost free? Come on, there can be no better deal than that!

Our new job....

Today, hubby and I went with our second son to his boys' school. He had been looking forward to my joining the unemployeds, by the way. Today he gave us a dry run of what we need to do when we take the grandkids to school. Rule 1: we have to be early or we will walk half a mile to the gate. Rule 2: we have to be at the designated gate or the little boy won't be let in. Rule 3: we have to make eye-contact with the teacher or else she won't release the little boy to us.
We are just too happy that we can drop and pick up the bigger boy as we used to.

Needed: Determination Determination Determination!!!

For the last two months I have been trying to gather enough courage to go into our garage with determination..... determination to put down those boxes that fill the shelves lining the walls. But putting those boxes down will only clutter the garage more, you might think. Well I want to put them down so I can haul each box into the recyclable bin. Yes, I want to finally say goodbye to those things that we've been clinging to for the last 2 or more decades! Items that we've not used for years but so afraid to let go of.
But what I am afraid of is my lack of determination not to open those boxes without taking a last look at the items inside and put each item back in the box and back on the shelves again!!!
Somebody HELP!!!!
