I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday - Game: Utter Nonsense and Books: Right Now is Worth It

We may have been given one or more of the books and/or other products listed below for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Game: Utter Nonsense



Me - Today I am recommending Utter Nonsense. It is a completely unique and original game. If you are good at accents or different voices, you will love this game. Even if are not that good at them, but you like doing them, you will still enjoy this game. The object is not to have the best accent, but the funniest. It is easy to learn and easy to play. If you are really inhibited and hold back, you will not enjoy the game as much. However, if you just let yourself go and just have a good time with it, it is really fun.



Books: Right Now is Worth It


Mom - Today I am recommending Right Now Is Worth It by Thomas Corrigan. This book really does a good job of accurately portraying the angst and struggles of being a teenager although three of the four teenagers in the book are dealing with more than just your average teenage drama. Emma is struggling to get over her father's abandonment and her sister's death all while living with an abusive stepfather. Shaun is a shy sort of geeky  guy that's never had a girlfriend who has a major crush on Emma. Sophia just wants to be seen for who she really is and not for her reputation or her looks. Jackson is a star athlete who seems to have a great life but he has a deep secret that can ruin him . As a recent high school graduate himself, the author of this book still seems to have very fresh memories of what it's like to be a teenager. He does a good job of portraying the  teenage struggle to find your way in the world and be your own person while at the same time struggling to be accepted by your peers.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for What-To-Do Wednesday.
