There's much more in the November Molly's Digest . . .
What to Celebrate in November? Thanksgiving, of course, but you probably didn't know that it is Peanut Butter Lover's Month or that the 3rd is Housewife's Day and the 15th is Clean Your Refrigerator Day. And the 17th has three different holidays to celebrate all at once. Liven up a few special days and make yours a very interesting November.
Smile More--Stress Less: Laugh along with Familyman Todd Wilson's cartoon in this month's Parenting That Pays. The holidays can be stressful times when we find ourselves getting impatient with the children and losing our focus of what's important. Most parents could probably use these tips on smiling when you just don't feel like it. Enjoy a thoughtful poem and a suggestion for taking that family holiday photo. (Molly always has such encouraging thoughts for parents.)
What to Do About Grandmother's Curtains: This was Aubrey's dilemma when two boxes full of old, mismatched curtains didn't quite meet her window needs. These lovely curtains turned into lovely _______. Well, you'll just have to read the article and see the results for yourself.
Goal-Getter Spotlight: It's a story full of hope and the labor of love an entire family of eight worked on to make their dream of owning a home come true. Buy a house with their $5,000 savings? Make it livable only two months later? Yes and yes! Renovating their new, 110-year-old home provided a lot of excitement for this family.
