REVIEW:
This book is such a useful tool for people who want to learn how to have work-family balance. These tips that Tricia gives the reader are geared to mom's who raise children and work from home, however, these tips can be used by anyone, male or female. These are just guidelines you can try, to see what works and what doesn't work for you. Your days will not always go as smoothly as planned, and some of the tips shared in this book help you to manage through those times with more ease.
Having faith in God, yourself and your loved ones helps, as long as you believe it does. This book helped me to realize that not every day will go right or even meet the expectations you may have, but with faith, patience and love, you can get through anything.
I definitely think this book is beneficial to anyone who is need of balance and works from home. The book has great tips and resources to figure out what your balance is and how to implement it.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
