Being out of town for a few days and leaving my teens to fend for themselves can be unnerving. We've been here before and I always leave them with an ample supply of good food, yet they always eat mac and cheese and ramen instead. You'd think I'd learn that home-cooking changes when mom is out of the home. Fast food rules as does everything else I'd like them not to consume. But while the cats away, I mean while moms away the kids will get away with whatever they can. I've also left them a list of chores to have done before I return. My hope is that my house won't look like my kids have had the run of it for the last four days but who am I kidding. I even played the Mother's Day card reminding them what a great gift it would be not to find opened and empty cartons in the refrigerator and grease splatted all over my oven top. I only jokingly find these faults as on one hand they are old enough to take care of themselves and my main desire is for them to be safe while I'm gone. Coming home to a clean house and a hot meal only happens on television shows from the 60's.

The Great Recession on 2009 brought some surprising findings when it came to service oriented businesses. People are still taking care of their pets and teeth and they are still paying to get their taxes done. Advertising and public relations were the companies that suffered the most along with dry cleaning and auto repair.
Are "Energy Star" products really worth it? Some people pay extra if an item has the energy star seal of approval but a recent investigation found that fifteen fake products received the federal certification. The EPA and DOE are on top of this and are now requesting a better testing of brands. Most Energy Star products that are on the market are about ten percent more-efficient than other models.
