Today, March 18th in History
37 AD The Roman Senate annuls Tiberius’ will and proclaims Caligula emperor. One of history’s most iconic bad guys, Caligula ruled Rome for just four years but exhibited enough cruelty and lunacy during his brief reign to live in infamy. Born Gaius Julius Caesar Germanicus Caligula means little boots and apparently he hated it but it stuck.

1932 John Updike, American poet and novelist. The Witches of Eastwick, 4 novel Rabbit series, Rabbit, Run is the book that established John Updike as one of the major American novelists of his—or any other—generation. Its hero is Harry “Rabbit” Angstrom, a onetime high-school basketball star who on an impulse deserts his wife and son. Rabbit, Run- spiritual quest, rabbit redo- Rabbit is abandoned by his family, his home invaded by a runaway and a radical, his past reduced to a ruined inner landscape; still he clings to semblances of decency and responsibility, and yearns to belong and to believe. Rabbit at rest, Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Howells Medal, and the National Book Critics Circle Award

Email: "You keep talking about spending all this time and energy organizing things- I don’t have time to do the regular things, why would I spend time doing this?"
Spend time with my family.
Be ready for a curveball.
The overwhelming seems manageable.
Be a better example for your kids.
Fewer little jobs.
We address the email with several amazing reasons why taking the time, when you seemingly dont have any, will reward you in several powerful ways including having more time! Take a listen!
ORGANIZE YOUR WAY
Katie and Kelly McMenamin are sisters, professional organizers, personality-type experts, and founders of PixiesDidIt!®.
A fun and inspiring interview with these two, about their new book ORGANIZE YOUR WAY, about why theirs is different, why you need it and why it matters. A must listen!
Their business is the product of buttoned-up hedge fund analyst Kelly spending years trying to get her messy older sister Katie, a writer, to be more organized. Countless fights ensued until they had an idea: What if there is more than one way to organize? Today, they spend the bulk of their time consulting with clients, writing for their website, and giving talks on how to organize according to your personality type.

MaidPro is all about mastering Spring Cleaning and owner Michelle Spitzer joined us to share the possibilities. MaidPro can be of tremendous help in so many ways, as Michelle shared with us, from polishing the silver for Easter, to power washing the pool deck for that pending pool party. She also shared several amazing (and some tragic!) reasons of why a serious and professional cleaning and their new home watch service- MaidPro Monitoring, will save you time and money in the long run.
