Remember when fall television season started all around the same time? September rolled around, school started, and all your favorite shows fresh new episodes began. Pure joy. Absolute bliss. NOW?

Achieving work-life balance is easier with help from others. Working from home is a lot easier when you've got a team to help out.

Verizon FiOS is wired differently

By | April 13, 2016|Lifestyle|Comments Off on Verizon FiOS is wired differently

I've expressed my love for how Verizon FiOS is wired differently. I'm not relying on coaxial cable anymore, but rather fiber optics.

However, it's also about the stress of paying for gifts: family gifts, gifts for spouses, teacher gifts, and so much more.

Mama Sunflower doesn't watch much television. More often than not, the kids rule the television while I'm home. If it isn't them, it's Mr. Sunflower.
