Many people are getting affected by todays changes in economy. Married couple are getting busy from making ends meet. For their family to have a good life. But as couple get busy sometimes couple don't have time for each other anymore. As many said no marriage are perfect. Many still manage to fix their problem by themselves but other just gave up and ended up in divorce. Now there's a way to get help about your marriage. National Institute of Marriagehave developed a continuum of care that meets couples wherever they may be in their relationship,regardless of the health of their marriage and have a service that can help them improve their marital satisfaction. They developed the Christian Marriage Counseling programs to continue to see a dramatic impact in the marriages of couples through our Intensive Marriage Counseling Programs.
Through the Intensives Marriage Counseling Programs National Institute of Marriage team members accomplish three very important goals: restoring couples, remaining connected to God's desire and ability to transform marriages, and, to continue learning, applying, and teaching the life-changing concepts that result in successful marriages. And their vision pursuing excellence in the integration of Christian faith and professional discipline, NIM will find innovative and effective ways to influence our world toward God-inspired lives and marriages.
With the national divorce rate around 50%, there is no doubt that many marriages run into communication problems at some point. There is a communication epidemic. The National Institute of Marriage has created marriage counseling programs and resources utilizing a structure that is the most powerful format they have found for helping couples who feel stuck and hopeless. They have designed several programs to help couples move past the barriers and experience the marriage of their dreams.
NIM's Intensive Marriage Counseling Programs are unique from weekly marriage counseling in three distinctive ways:
· Intensive Marriage Counseling Format: Committing to an extended amount of concentrated time like the 2 or 4 day Marriage Intensive allows people to get to the root of the problem and stick with it in order to work through it. If you’ve been in traditional marriage counseling before, you may have experienced how you spend the first half catching up from the week before, the second half getting into the real issues, and then the time is gone. The Intensive format is designed so that people have the chance to go deeper without many of the other distractions of daily life and have enough discuss to consider solutions.
· Efficiency: One of the first steps in the process is an extensive assessment with some questionnaires. This allows the therapists to gather background information and can get an idea of the best strategy to proceed before you arrive for your session.
· Marriage Counselors: The counselors at the National Institute of Marriage are specialists in this area. One analogy we like to use is that of the Mayo Clinic: people go to their regular physician but may be sent to a specialist to work with specific areas. The NIM marriage therapists have been trained in this format to maximize its effectiveness. Also, the NIM marriage counseling programs provide the perspectives and insight of two professionals rather than one.
If you are considering divorce, you must try the National Institute of Marriage before giving up. They have developed a continuum of care that meets couples wherever they may be in their relationship. Regardless of the health of their marriage they have a service that can help couples improve their marital satisfaction. Visit their website at http://www.nationalmarriage.com. Read the incredible testimonies from the couples that saved their marriages by attending a Marriage Intensive at the National Institute of Marriage.

Holiday season is just around the corner. And not everyone can afford to have a food for their family. Cydcor have a Pre-Holiday Food Drive that making an increasing difference in communities and help people at a time of increasing need. Due to economic downturn that has contributed to rising need, many local food banks are seeing heavier demand during the non-holiday season and it's great that Cydcor made an efforts and encouraged its employees to participate in a pre-holiday food drive to help people in need.
Cydcor Employees Donate to Pre-Holiday Food Drive
Team members of leading global provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams give groceries and hygiene products during economy slump.
Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) November 11, 2008 -- Employees of Cydcor, the leading provider of outsourced, face-to-face sales teams, donated 26 bags of groceries and hygiene products to a Manna-sponsored food drive in October as part of the company's ongoing community philanthropy.
Amid an economic downturn that has contributed to rising need, many local food banks are seeing heavier demand during the non-holiday season. Cydcor Chief Executive Officer Gary Polson encouraged team members to get involved in Manna's food drive efforts after learning about the food banks' plight leading into the heavy-use holiday season. More than a dozen Cydcor employees immediately took action and purchased goods for the cause.
I'm thrilled that Cydcor team members are making an increasing difference in communities where we live, work and play through charitable efforts like this. This effort will benefit so many people at a time of increasing need," Polson said. "We hope to continue our donations in times when the collections hit a slump - before Thanksgiving, after Christmas and during the summer."
Cydcor puts a large emphasis on corporate philanthropy. In 2008, the company launched Cydcor Cares' Volunteer Day and Neighborhood Leaders Program, both of which are internal programs to encourage team members to become more involved in their local communities and volunteer their time to charity, occasionally during work hours. Since 2007, Cydcor has maintained a partnership with Casa Pacifica, a residential treatment facility in Camarillo for abused, neglected and emotionally disturbed children.
Manna is an emergency food distribution center that helps families, seniors and the disabled during temporary financial crises. Manna volunteers have served the communities of Thousand Oaks, Newbury, Agoura Hills and Camarillo for the past 38 years. Manna receives no government funding, but continues to operate on the donations from area church groups and business organizations.

The kids have fun last Halloween. We even went out early right after six to go trick or treats in our neighbors. We only lasted nearly an hour because my daughter got tired already and it's getting cold and dark. And she's already coughing. So we just give out treat from our house. We have many kids again maybe nearly 80 or more. There are lots of kids from different neighborhood that goes in our subdivision, i saw that cars and mini van and dropping kids to goes around here. I turn off our light around 8:30 ,my kids are getting tired and sleepy. But there are still kids whose using the door bell or knocking even the lights outside is off. Here if your done giving treats just turn off the light so kids will know your done for the night. But i guess not all like that and try their luck if people will still open doors for them. So after i turn off our light kids still knocked so i just looked out in the window and saw maybe a dozen or more kids in our driveway:) and i saw some cars drop them off, so there are not from our subdivision. i like to open the door to give out my left over treats but i saw there are more large group of older kids coming from the other side so i just ignore them because my kids are getting ready for bed and my lights are off so i figure they will get the message and I'm not sure if i have enough treats left to give. Anyway the kids have a great day and here is a picture of my dark knight and little bee. Have a great day!

As the prices of gas, grocery and necessities in life changes,we need to watch out how to spend our hard earned money. We look and search on how to saved. From not eating out to much and watch for the sale in stores.
For me i need to change my glasses but with the hight prices of prescription eyeglasses i really need to researched online on how i can get a good quality glasses in good price.Then i found ZenniOptical.com . They sells Stylish Prescription Glasses, a huge selection of frames, with single vision lens and all the kind of lens you will need. They have glasses for a great prices that you cannot beat if you compare it to retail glasses store.
When i got a eyeglasses from ZenniOptical and compare it to my glasses i bought for a few hundreds of dollars. I hope that i found ZenniOptical sooner. It's great to have that extra cash to have in hand specially to a mother like me. Any thing to save and add to my family's budget will be great. So share this information to your family and friends that need prescription glasses i bet they will be glad to know that they can get a good quality, many syles glasses in a very great price.

I plan to move her to her own bed when she turns 2 but it will be in January and i don't like to shop around and it's hard to paint a room when it's too cold and winter here. And she's getting interested to be in his brother's bed and of course it's not big enough for the two of them and my son want his space for his own and he always share but it's better for her to get her own bed anyway:)!. I choose for them to share a room for now until they get older and get tired of being together on one room:)And my son will moved to our bigger room which as of now set up as guest room. They will share my son's room but it's has been painted blue, so painted the room with 3 colors - blue, pink and yellow. It turned out great:) it's a lot of work and a bit pricey too lol!! but it's great to make a room with boy and girl colors in it. We went in Nebraska furniture store which is too big and many selection to choose from, my husband and kids are getting tired from waiting for me to make up my mind and already pick the bed:)!here is the bed we got for her it's Enchantment Collection from legacy classic kids co.

We finally got our new playset a week ago. It's really great. My kids enjoy having this to our backyard that added adventure to their play area. It's great we just paid the store to deliver and installed this. It took 2 men 5 hours to put the play set together. My kids are looking on our window while the men are assembling it. and too exited to try it. And after it's all done they spent hours to playing with it. This playset are made of red wood and cedar so it's really strong even me and my hubby can use the swing. The neighbors even come over and try our playset. Overall a very good quality playset.
We also got a fence installed a few days ago. We have a few problem when their installing the picket fences and i need to deal with it because my hubby's at work the guys who's installing it don't like to do it right. So i need to take pictures of the fence and called their office and fax the pictures that they put the wrong style of fence and after a few hours a truck came with the right style of picket fences.And they finally removed the wrong woods and put what we ordered. The guys apologized for not doing it right the first time. But they also lost time for not looking if they have the right style of fence before installing it. At least they fix it the same day too! and It great that i will feel safe when the kids are playing in our backyard and they cannot go in neighbors yards and in street. I guess we are done for our summer project for our yard for now:)! Anyway have a great Sunday!

It's been a few days since i write something here, i don't have luck with PPP this week. And my allergies got bad, my eyes is too watery and itchy so it's hard to be in front of computer:)!.I took some pictures of my kids on our deck when their playing with bubbles that i like to share here.
We went and look for a wood swing set in backyard adventure showroom near us . They have many swing set that my kids tried and and they really enjoy it, It's made of red wood so it's a bit pricey but it look really good. My hubby and kids found one they like but it's too pricey for me. Don't like to spend few thousand of dollars for a swing set. But we are thinking to buy the simple one but still look great and big enough for our backyard still a couple of thousand dollars still more than i want to spend but we saw the cheaper one in different stores and i can understand now why this redwood swing set are more expensive:)! it will take them last week of the month to deliver and install it. I saw a swingset that are cheaper than redwood from ahome improvement store.It's treated lumber but still look great and not too pricey:)a thousand less than the simple redwod swingset that we like. We are still waiting for our fence to be install too! we are in waiting list for 5 weeks for the fence people to put it in, i guess all nearly think the same to put fence and get a wood swing set this summer. Anyway i hope everyone have a great day!!
