I received my tax document from LinkVehicle today. I hope that I could have the other ones in the next weeks to come so we could file our taxes already. Daughter also received her tax document from Google. This is the perk she received (Paid travel for 2) as the State of WV winner for the Doodle4Google last year. This is the airfare, hotel accommodation, and other stuff that was provided for her during the event.
I wonder if paypal transaction history will be enough to use to file a tax? Most of my earnings online are from different DAs so I am sure I won't be getting a tax document from them.
On another note, I recently work with a DA and I was asked to find travel and family-related blogs. If you are interested, kindly put your website url at the comment section, thanks.
I also would like to invite you to sign up, if you haven't yet, at MomsAffiliate here. They have giveaways, tweets, and all other perks that you can enjoy through blogging.

Modern life is full of accessories, appliances, and a host of gadgets you use on the go, so how do you hide the behind-the-scenes workings of real life? With the endless reams of computer cords and chargers that power our mobiles and the day-to-day clutter of family life, the task may seem daunting, but you can design a home that is free from clutter. It just takes a little planning. Here are some tips for designing a clutter-free home.
We all have clutter of some description; the best homes just hide it well. There's an old adage that says "a place for everything and everything in its place" and that certainly should be adhered to when you're designing your home. The key is storage, storage, and more storage, so consider your needs when you build. Take a look at several modern home designs and, where possible, explore display homes from reputable builders such as Coral Homes to see what tried-and-tested features may suit your needs.

It may be the heart of the home, but the kitchen is also the greatest offender when it comes to extraneous clutter. From bread makers to coffee machines, the kitchen is home to all manner of appliances that take up ugly residency on the bench. This has led to the rising popularity of the butler's pantry, an extra room off the kitchen with additional storage and bench space for all those appliances. The best thing about it is you simply shut the door to hide any mess. If a butler's pantry doesn’t feature in your ideal design, maximize your kitchen storage instead and don’t forget benchtop cupboards with power points where you can slide away your appliances.
Children come with all manner of clutter, from toys to games, and a constantly expanding wardrobe. Cupboards are a must for kids, so ensure you include built-ins in the bedroom, complete with shelves or drawers that they will be able to reach. Also consider under-bed storage and clever furniture, such as coffee tables that double as toy chests and lift-top ottomans where toys can easily be packed away.
Hobby and Work Clutter
If you love to sew or are an avid model train creator, then you know the inevitable clutter that comes with your hobby. Factor this in when building your dream home and consider a room specifically to house your hobby or work zone, complete with the necessary cupboards and workbenches.
Tennis racquets, hockey sticks, baseball bats, cricket stumps and golf clubs deserve a home too. A garage, hall, or laundry cupboard should be designated to their needs. This is a cupboard that will literally have things thrown into it, so don't be too precious about its interior and ensure its shelving is the right size and height to house your sporting goods.
Having storage for all your items not only creates a clutter-free space but means your home is easier to keep clean. The best tip is to consider your lifestyle needs from the outset and design accordingly.

Traveling with kids can be quite challenging but if you train your kids to be good travelers, the journey will be enjoyable for the whole family.

I grew up watching my Grandfather played banjo and guitar. He didn't have any fancy thing in like Boss reverb pedals or anything. I kind of like the old basic guitar playing, no complicated stuff. But then again, those added cool things makes the sound of music a lot better so I am torn in the middle. But hey, no matter what it that musician use, I like it because music is the greatest thing that you can have as a stress reliever so I am not complaining. I wish I could have asked my Grandpa to teach me how to play back then. I have a lot of Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda, moments.

During our one week vacation in Ocean City, Maryland, we had a blast!
I just got done talking to my mother on the phone. I made an overseas call because my sister said that mama is sick and I was glad that the signal of cellphone there a while ago and I was able to talk to Mama for almost two hours. I wish I could look for a health insurance quote for my Mom over there because she isn't getting any younger and I want her to have a security blanket when she gets sick.
I am always worried when mama or somebody in my family is sick back home because they don't have a health insurance that could take care of the medical bills when they get hospitalized. I hope and pray that my Mom would get well soon so that she could enjoy the holiday without any sickness. She always have this bad headache and the funny thing is that the doctor told her that it's just normal. I said "WHAT, having a bad headache is normal?" What kind of doctor would say that to a patient?
