I recently had a couple of bad bouts of luck when it comes to my iPhone and it has forced me to realized how far I have come in terms of revolving my productive life around my smartphone. I found it really hard to go back to basics!

Irene has a new post Purging Your Stuff Using Craigslist, Donation, and Freecycle on http://goo.gl/gjnW3X
I recently went through a pretty major move that involved two toddlers, buying a new house, and selling a new house. This was a situation that called for a lot of de-cluttering and purging before and after the move, and I have learned a lot about the pros and cons about these  3 ways of ...

Irene has a new post A Small Tweak Can Make All the Difference on http://goo.gl/hBFpfF
After a little more than a year of being a stay at home mom, I was feeling worn down and terrible about myself. Like any mother of a toddler and breastfeeding infant, I was tired. More than anything, I felt like I was maybe not cut out to be a stay at home wife. Sure I was getting better at...

Irene has a new post My Past Life and New Endeavor on http://goo.gl/tvpWYV

(untitled) by SportSuburban

In my previous life, I had always worked. I worked as my father’s child laborer when I was young. I stepped into the working world the day right after graduation, which means I went to no celebrations or parties and got up early the next morning to work. I was...

Irene has a new post Book Review: Anxious Parents: A History of Modern Childrearing in America on http://goo.gl/5ZGppq
While Anxious Parents is not a how-to parenting book, it is very useful for a parent to read as a primer to parenting books. I wish I had read this book before reading over 20 different kinds of parenting books before and after the birth of my first child. While I believe that this book could...

Irene has a new post Don't Let Motherhood Get You Down on http://goo.gl/zOh0KK
Being a mother is a tough job, and it can really rock your sense of self. It is not easy being a mom. Whether you are working outside the home or a stay at home mom, motherhood is hard work. And studies have shown that it can be depressing, especially if you believe in the...

Irene has a new post Reasons to Shop Online for the Holidays on http://goo.gl/1gQfXy

Irene has a new post Happy Chinese New Year (of the Dragon) on http://goo.gl/3IgeQm
This year, my Chinese New Year did not get off to a very good start. It is tradition to do some serious and thorough cleaning of the house for Chinese New Year, and I did not do a very good job this year of cleaning and washing everything. We had planned to go out to a Chinese restaurant to eat...

Irene has a new post Prioritizing and Doing What's Important on http://goo.gl/pqXUen
“If everything is important, nothing is important.”
Important vs. Urgent

Important activities have an outcome that leads to the achievement of your...

Irene has a new post Getting Rid of the Paper Towel Habit on http://goo.gl/r3Iiuj
I never thought that I would use less paper towels with two little ones around, but we have now started to use a lot less of the paper towel or napkin around the house. There was a time when I used paper towels to clean everything like it is going out of style. The one thing about being a stay...

Irene has a new post Thanksgiving Cooking on http://goo.gl/r84nuo
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, mostly because it has pretty much meant spending time with friends and family, and participating in one of my favorite social activities — feasting! Previous to this year, I have always been either lazy (going to a restaurant or show up at a dinner...

Been here since June 2013 and found the Director Eva to be very caring. Several teachers are very good. My children love the playground and I like the bilingual aspect of the school.
