"One Good Thing" by Jillee
Yesterday was my son Sten’s birthday. My “baby” turned 15! How did THAT happen?!? I love what Gwyn wrote on Facebook yesterday: “I used to tell my son he could celebrate birthdays and have parties he just wasn’t allowed to get older.” LOL. Unfortunately, that’s just not working Gwyn!

Since our teen son started working at a fast food restaurant, this has become our most-loved detergent recipe. His clothing was so saturated with heavy french fry and onion ring grease scent that even washing them in TIDE didn't take out the horrendous smell. I whipped up a half gallon of this detergent and washed his clothes while he was at school- he thought I'd gotten a new shirt from his boss at work!

Homemade Holidays: Crock Pot Candles Growing up in my house, we always made our own holiday gifts. We were pretty poor, and I suppose it was our only option.

But that’s another story.) For Concerned Parents - Is Your Teen Interested in Wicca?

'American Idol' Elimination Night: Who Are the Remaining Top 4? Michael Becker / FOX This week’s American Idol theme of Brit Pop produced some of the strongest vocal performances of the season. Alas, after 60 million votes cast -- according to host Ryan Seacrest -- one of the Top 5 got the boot. VIDEO: 'Idol Hangover': Season 10's Haley Reinhart Talks Taking Risks on 'American Idol,' Feeling Sexy on New Album Sadly, that boot was fitted for country cutie Skylar Laine, the pint-sized Mississippi spitfire who livened up our screens every week with memorable performances, including The Faces’ anthem “Stay With Me” and Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Fortunate Son.” There will be no country finale this season, despite Laine’s strong performances of the CCR classic and Dusty Springfield’s “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me," which resonated with the judges.
