About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Time to Bring out the Board Games

Today is our second day stuck inside due to the snow and ice storm.  The first day is always fun being lazy and just enjoying the extra time with family.  The second day is when I start to get stir crazy knowing that I can't leave the house.  So it's time to bring out the card games....

Board and card games were always a huge hit with my family growing up.  I can remember my parents and grandparents staying up late at night having Skip-Bo and Mille Bornes tournaments.  My brother and I were always huge Monopoly fans.

So this morning my husband and I started our rounds of Skip-Bo and Racko.  I'm sure we will be bringing out the Phase 10 and Fast Scrabble before the end of the day.

The brain is the most powerful part of our body and it is what keeps our body in good condition.  With age, the brain tends to loose its sharpness and you may experience problems related to memory.  That's why it is important to keep the brain active and in good condition all the time.  Mental exercise can be crucial.  The brain is like a muscle....use it or lose it.  Card games and board games can be very healthy for your brain.  These games can help stimulate your brain to think.

Do you have a favorite board or card game?  I'd love to hear it about it!
