A Little Extra Motivation for you who are in the age of 35

It’s 35 degrees outside, and this is the warmest day we will have all week. This is terrible news for my daily walk. That means I need a little extra motivation to get myself moving.

It turns out that once again the gods have smiled down on me , yes me, Tessie the Frugal lady, with their shining brilliance. This time their effulgence takes the form of a brand-new library in my hometown. Yes. I’ve no doubt that this was all put in train by the heavens for my own convenience and benefit.

StudyPug Review – Boost grades of my son in Math and Science

I had been searching for YouTube Tutorial for math and science help for my son. And I was so tired of finding videos that weren’t helping my son in math and science class. Math and science can be confusing for me as a parent and also for my son who was struggling with math and science.  He don’t like to ask for help or admit that he hasn’t understood.  It’s also not easy for me to understand and teach math and science even when I have the time.
