Kids on break

Our schedules been off the last week and will continue because the kids miss their friends .  They can't wait to go back to school.  I made some homemade fried chicken and mashed potatoes and gravy.  We had green beans and carrots to go with it.  They have enjoyed the time off.  They don't want to stay home they want to go back to school.  I remember the days... we always were pro school.  Maybe we will have easy bake day tomorrow.

Merry Christmas

We decided to stay home this morning and not go to church.  I thought that it was not going to go on on a holiday.  But I was wrong.  We are celebrating with My MIL she's the best cook I know.  I am still working on my cookbook.  Can't wait to add my Grandma's recipes.  I took a wonderful shower after we got done unwrapping our stuff.  I am waiting to give my husband his presents in January.  It's been kind of short this month.  Hope you guys have a wonderful day and also make sure you realize that sooner than you know it New Years Eve.

Kids are on Break guess who's comming in a few Hours SANTA

Hi everyone I wanted to wish you a happy holiday!  However you celebrate it weather it's Christmas or something else.  I am more excited this Christmas than any other I have had.  I think it's because there's no snow on the ground.  I was worried that due to family traveling that if it snowed they wouldn't make it here.  My cousin and her family are back home they moved to Wyoming last year because of her husbands schooling.  They are both in the Military.  So they also serve our country.  They haven't been called out to war.  They are blessed not to leave their young son.  I am thankful my family's together.  I am really happy that my dad is able to come home for the holiday's .  He is a long haul truck driver and he works really hard and he's gone a lot.  I really am glad that he can relax he works six days a week already. It's been cloudy and rainy here.  I am really tired of the rain.  My son is getting a cold so that's really sad.  But hope that he will feel better with the medicine.  My religious beliefs have really helped me the last few weeks.  I have been praying a lot.  Santa is comming to our house with his elves.  They have a big program to help families.  So they bring little trinkets to the children at my kids' school. Mind you we live in a small town with less than 2,000 people.  Thank goodness for that although I would like some of those double coupon stores near me.  Talk to you guys later.

Needing some advice...............

The other day the kids got their hair cuts done.  The problem was my daughter had really long hair and she wanted it drastically shorter.  She seen an advertisement on the wall and had to have that cut.  At first I tried to talk her out of it.  But she pleaded and I gave in.  She liked it till we left.........than changed her mind to she hated it...... It's like layered and short in the back.  Her cousin told her she looked like a boy (which she doesn't) and really it is cute if she wanted to scrunch it etc.  The problem with the long hair was is she wasn't taking care of it.  It would nap up together at night.  and she wasn't taking care of it.  So I was all for shorter hair.  We are going to be getting some hair bands and hair clips to make it get better in the mean time.  She also has mouse and hairspray to help style her hair .  I think we will let it be a bob haircut.  But I want her to have some pride in her appearance and I am not sure if she will if I constantly do everything for her.  I know she needs some freedom of expression though so I encourage imaginary play and I want her to think on her own and not be a sheep either.  My son wanted a mowhawk and I said NOPE!!! They look awful and they also just I just don't like them we settled for a little longer on top short sides and back so he looks so much better like this. He still is asking for camo stuff. I told him to wait until Christmas though and see what santa brings. He opened some of his Christmas presents early and got an awesome pair of binacculors.  He also got some shirts and some airplaines he was in Heaven.  Did I do the right thing in giving in to my daughter for her choice of haircut.  Or should I have choosen for her.

Uploading Videos

So I have been working my little hind end off uploading the video.  It downloaded 2 of the 4.  I am really excited to tell you the truth.  Because we are so rural our internet is slow.  I can't believe it's already ten o'clock.  The day has been going by pretty fast though I think I hope that I can get all of this stuff done by 5pm.  I talked to the elder in my church this morning she makes me feel so human.  I really like her advice because it comes from the heart.  She is older and wiser than me.  Not sure what we are having for dinner I was thinking about having some meatloaf or spagetti.  Either one of those sounds so good.  I may cook over at my MIL house because I have a lot of meat thawed out accidently thawed out 4 pounds.  Didn't realize my husband had already thawed some meat out too.  Opps mental note next time make sure that I do talk with him first and make sure he doesn't have it thawing in the fridge.  Tomorrow is Dr. appointment for my son and my daughter has some girls scout meeting. This should be a blast.  Then Wendsday is the kids Christmas parties I think I am going to make some cupcakes.  The bad thing is about transfering them I don't know how to make frosting hard,

One of those sick weekends when you don't feel like doing anything........

I decided to hop on here and blog ... I still feel really achy and so does my hubby.  This wisdom tooth surgery is still giving him problems.  Today our church donated Christmas food baskets to the needy.  The men drove them out to people's houses.  I thought it was really kind of them to do.  We may be having dinner at my MIL tomorrow.  I need to go there and activate her cell phone that I ordered.  They made it so I can't do anything until Monday.  I was pretty agitated last night when I drove all the way over there and called my cell company.  They are always so cheerful... I just spend prob half an hour trying to make it work.. But afterwords it was ok she didn't mind waiting until tomorrow.  The kids rented some movies my son's watching diary of a wimpy kid.  He's never seen it.  This weeks going to be really busy.  My daughter has scout meeting this week.  The kids also have their Christmas parties.  I don't know all that's going to happen though.  I have to go to the dr. myself and so does the hubs.  I hope that this week goes by pretty well.  I want to hopefully get the rest of the things done for Christmas and New Years .  Wish me luck all.  I have a big week ahead of me............

Long Day but baking called my name to the kids

I really have felt down the last few days just achy all over.  But for some last minute gifts I had to make some cookies and cupcakes for the kids. We are also gonna be making some homemade icing to go on top too.  I even called the non emergency dr. hotline.  They said if I can't deal with it than go to the er.  I hate going there so I will try to hold on till Monday to see my dr.  This week is the kids christmas parties at school. They are going to be plum full of cookies.  My body aches my eyes hurt too.  I think it's partially stress partially just being busy not taking my time.  We've been really working on our boy scout badges. I need to get a girl scout book to find out what she needs to do.  My son's just vegging out on the couch just trying to relax watching walker. It's one of his favorite shows.  We try to limit the violence in this house.  I just want them to grow up with healthy expectations.  That's just me.  My MIL gift of a new cellular phone came early it came today.  I am glad she's happy to have reliable service.  She was paying to much for the prepaid ones.  I plan on making some new years resolutions in the next week.  I hope that I can accomplish my goals.  I think this will help out so much .  I need to make two more blankets for the beds I am crocheting.  The boy one will probally be the army colors.  I have been buying the yarn at Wallmart.  I am trying to do it cheap it sure costs a lot of money.  I need to learn how to follow a pattern and sell my wares on etsy.  Wish me luck.  Still booking parties for the new year.  Wish me luck

New Addiction Fried Pickles

So last night was my bday.  We saw Arthur Christmas and The older one and the hubs saw Tower Heist!.We had supper at Hooters!!! Haven't been to the one here.  I haven't been to any since I was a kid boy have they changed.  It was much more upper class.  Not trashy.  I was glad.  I really wanted something different for supper.  I ordered fried pickles almost ate the whole plate......... No seriously they have a sauce too it was so dang good.  I even got a new food I have never heard of or ever ate Chicken Philly and a whole plate of curly fries.  They were fresh and tasty.  I highly advise you guys to check them out!!.  We also have been keeping busy with scouts and also my job too.  I dropped off some clothes for my niece.  How I wish my kids were small again.  There was some cute outfits in there.  But it was a wonderful day and I was glad I could spend it with my family.

Review: Yelling:The Casualty, The Cure

I was asked to review Yelling:The Casualty and The Cure it is an ebook written by Lorrie Flem.  I wrote this review earlier I think I somehow erased it.  So here it goes again.  This book was really enlightening to me.  I am one of those parents that used to yell when I was frustrated.  It became bad enough that over time that my kids didn't even care if I raised my voice.  I really think because that this was one of the reason's that I did is because I was raised like that.  My mom yelled and yelled at my sister and me all the time.   I wanted to rewrite this but I had such a busy time with sick kids and been so busy with scouts but I wanted you to know about what a wonderful book that it has taught me.  I have prayed so much for a difference in my life and I appreciate Gabby Mom for giving me the opportunity.

New Thoughts for my business

I read about another reps idea for hooking on her business card to a candy cane and giving it to everyone! Mail people cashiers delivery drivers etc.  I didn't even think of that.  I thought of plain suckers I was thinking about using dum dum's because they are cheap.  But I didn't want my customers to think they are dumb.  Am I over analyzing this a bit.  Also I plan on making some flyers to post.  I can make some up for sure.  I really wanna get going.  I am in love with their Make -Up. I am working on my portfolio and I still need some faces to add on to it.  Cleaned house and husband went and returned some movies.  I am not a big movie person but my husband is and we have been watching more movies than I used too. I bought some movies in the 5 buck bin at the Super Center. I got some new releases in there.  My husband really likes the scary movies.  I like the Romantic Comedies.  Can't help it Love some romance.  I have ordered some stuff I am bartering with other bloggers.  I am also sending her some samples of some new products.  She has really helped me out. I am sure someday I will go to wordpress but for now I am content here.

Cookies and more Cookies

We have been a cookie making machine over here.  I love to bake and my kids have all helped me cook.  I think that we will make another batch tonight.  I also have some more decorating to do too.  It's been a busy weekend .  Our church had a cookie and clothing giveaway our first ever.  I think that we have done marvelous we have a small church.  14 families made at least 4 dozen cookies and fudge and candy to share with everyone.  I kind of made way tooo many cookies.  I ate some cookies not good for my diet and I have gained a few pounds during this.  I know everyone eats cookies and goodies but I think I ate too much these cookies we are going to keep some and donate some to the woman's shelter in our town.  I have never donated something I made just what I bought.  I also am looking for people to donate some lotion.  I sell MK it's a ten dollar donation so that I can give to the nursing home and domestic violence and rape shelter this Feb.  I have never taken on something this big and I can't afford to do it myself so I am asking you my readers to help me and donate lotion it comes with a pair of fuzzy socks you can do it private or I can send your note with your name included. I am also asking if your kids feel like drawing pictures or making a craft or a card I would love to share that too.  So please consider helping more info to come feel free to comment  or ask.  I will gladly share any info you may ask of me.

One of those Sleepless Nights

Yawn........just kidding . I am slightly tired.  Worried about my husbands appointment tomorrow worried what the Dr. will say.  He's still having extreme pain from the wisdom teeth issues.  I don't know hoping that it's just a dry socket but who knows really.  I missed the church decorating tonight.  I think I offended someone that I know multiple times because I am not cheery and happy go lucky all the time.  They fake it they have this facade for everyone to see.  I haven't known them a great deal but I am trying to be good to others and show good will.  I just don't understand if it's not roses and chocolate why you should have to lie about things.  I would rather be honest with my thoughts and opinions then to go on day in and out with living a lie.  But it's not for me to judge.  I also decided that when others spread gossip I should stop them mid step and tell them I don't care because really I don't.  I hate how others go around doing it so why should I waste my precious time hearing about others made up stories.  I think that came out harsh but seriously.  That's how lies and insecurities start.  Soon the house will be noisy and it's quiet listening to everyone sleep.  I really wanted to tried to and I just can't so tonite which is really tomorrow hope I sleep really well.

I am a Scout Mommy......I even cried..................

No seriously..........I made the leap.  I am not an official leader but my son  is in Boy Scouts.  His Den leader was an inspiration his son was so sweet to my son and me.  I was really relieved that he wasn't nervous.  Boy I sure was though.  I am really hoping that we can start memorizing the pledge and also the stuff that makes them into good people.  I didn't realize at first how much this is going to change my son's life!!!! He has role models and he see's all different kind of boys that are close in age to him.  The Master Scout Leader made sure I was able to speak to him even though I was new with my many questions and it must have been slightly annoying.  I mean I guess everyone has to be new sometime right.  But they welcomed me with open arms.  I needed that!!  I was unsure which pack to pick.  I wasn't sure which one was going to be the best so I went with my heart.  I made the right choice.  I can feel it.    When I found out how much it cost for the uniform I was kinda worried to be honest.  Right now but it was so relieving when he said he would work with me and take payments.  It made it easier ...........I cried . ... I won't lie.  I was worried how much it would cost.  It's important to me that he gets his shirt... More will come with time.  I am hoping that I can get that down the road.  I am excited about the derby the badges everything.  I wish I would have had the chance.  I didn't when I was a child.. I wish I would have been in sports I wish I would have done so many things different but I am grateful to god that my kids can have these chances in life to grow and become strong people.

Reviewing of : Dr. Topper ( Dollar General Brand Pop)

I wanted to try out some of the cheaper pops to compare to the name brand as I have been really pinching pennies.  I bought the Two Liter for 85 cents plus tax.  I would say it tastes similar to Dr.Pepper but not quite the same as the real thing.  Close though.  My daughter and I are big Diet Dr. Pepper fans.  I like to get the cheaper brands to test them out sometimes to see if they are worth it.  I have bought it twice .  The kids are major fans now.  They can't taste the difference.  My palate can.  But if I am looking to cut costs I can drink it but it must be ice cold.

Disclaimer: DG did not buy me pop did not send me samples I paid for this on my own and am sharing my opinions on what I thought about taste and the price.  I can't promise you how it will taste to  you nor can I make sure the price is the same in every market.  These are just my opinions and I wanted to share what I thought.  Thanks for reading.

So really excited had to share

I took the leap and signed the kids up for scouts boy and girl.  I have decided to not get the whole getup to make sure they want to stay in.  Since the girl scout troop is to big they want to split the troop and have me be a leader.  I was like sounds good.  But after I thought of that I thought.  Would I be really crafty and would I be fun.  I don't know if that's what I would really like to do .  I think that it could be really fun.  The topic of youth group has started up again.  I don't know since I cannot find another person to help me that this wouldn't be such a great idea.  So that idea must go on the shelf again. I have been challenged to sell 200 in Mary Kay by Dec 5th Please Please help me reach my goal you can order online as shipping is free.  My website is          It's really important I meet this goal and I only have a few days to get there please help me reach my goal .  I want to show my director I can do this challenge we have different ones every week.  I know I can make it.  I have also decided on a awesome Thirty-One purse and wallet that I want.  I am hoping for Christmas my hubby will get me some or even I would like to review one for a consultant.  If so you would make me very happy.  Onto another topic there's two Dr. appointments tomorrow so I will be fairly busy.  Hope that all goes well pray for me.  Thanks ya'll.

Long Day Believe it or not

I am really trying to get my blog up and running.  I am kinda nervous too because I can't figure out how to make pictures come on it.  To me it's kind of odd not seeing me or my kids or my dogs.  I plan to fix that as soon as I can.  I wish I was a web genius.  I am thinking of making a big decision in my life......Drum Roll    ...................I am thinking of going back to school.  Not that being a mom isn't enough.  Which I enjoy thoroughly but it's not the same thing being around other adults. I was thinking something creative like beauty school  culinary (don't you love Chopped and the Cupcake Wars)  I mean seriously.  I am like addicted to those shows.  OR maybe even business school.  That would rock to either way.  We need to find a recipe for homemade salsburry steak the new ones they have out these days really are bad.  Like pressed meat can I get an amen!! When I went to church I just was craving a cigarette.  It's been almost two weeks without now and it's still really hard!! Anyone have any advice to share!!

OPPS! I forgot

I really am working on my Mary  Kay business..........I hope that Cyber Monday and also when it gets closer to the season that it will take off.  My step daughter wants to join I think she would be fabulous to have on my team.  In my heart of hearts I am debating if I should help her financially get her kit.  It's on sale this month and it would help her out to have something to look forward to .  Shameless plug here's my web site  .  I am setting some goals for the future. I want to earn my way to take my family to Disney.  I really hope that we could go I want to buy the tickets myself saving all I can and surprise them.  For the kids I want to buy some micky shirts.  For my husband I want to put together a scavenger hunt.  I think they would really be amazed at doing this.  I really want to go myself is that selfish.  I think they would really get a kick.  I thought I would also surprise them them the night before and then  tell them.

Really Really

Tonight my oldest Step Daughter is spending the night.  I am going to be adding her onto my plan for my cell phone.  I want to be able to talk to her also for her job hunt.  I am hopeful that my blog will take off and maybe earn some money from it to live on.  Like other bloggers.  I have some awesome things I wish I could post.  I   have thought have starting another wordpress blog too. But it seems so much more complicated than blogger.  I am following more blogs now than ever before.  I have a lot of reading to catch up on.  I don't know why I am still up I took care of my Uncle last night so I am so tired today.  I need to pay some of my bills tomorrow.  I can't mail them until Monday.  I am kind of worried about this phone situation because I am putting faith and trust into her and I don't know how this will end.  But she's living with people that are treating her like crap and I know that this would help her out big time.  I can't let my kids suffer so her and her boyfriend are spending the night.  I hope I can get some sleep as I have to get up early for church tomorrow.  And I kinda secretly wish I could sleep in... That's bad of me isn't it wish me luck tomorrow it's going to come early.........

In the er...........

So my son stepped on a piece of glass last night and it cut the bottom of his foot and also his toe.  I can't believe that it happened.  My vaccum didn't get up all the pieces he had to have four stitches that come out in a week.  I cried.  He didn't.  He didn't cry till they tried to numb him which as we all know sucks.  I think hubs woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.  I woke up exhausted I kept on waking up.  I know lucky me.  My son has to be on crutches for a week.  I may have to go to school with him.  To make sure he doesn't walk on his foot.  Between this and my illness and hospital stay it's been a long week.  I ran into the same nurse.  She asked how I was doing.  I am waiting for the bottom to drop to be honest.  It's meeting tonite.  I won't go to the early one just go to the later one due to the fact I have a lot to get done.  I took my medicine for my allergies.  For some reason they have really flared up today.  I think it's really due to stress.  I talked to my mentor earlier she keeps encouraging me but it falls on deaf ears.  I hate to say that.  But lets be honest  it's the way that I feel.  It's still pretty cool outside.  My son got up than he went back to sleep.  He's really tired.  I can't blame him he was up really late last night.  I am really tired myself.  I want to lay down but I am waiting for some kind of phone call to get an update.  I'll keep you posted and let you know.

Trip to the Hospital

It started out like chest pains. It wouldn't stop I couldn't breathe thought I was dying .  Went to the hospital they kept me for two days. I was really scared.  Thank God my husband was in there for me.  I was really scared I had a lot of tests done.  I finally got to go home.  I was so relieved. My Step Daughter came over tonight.  She is thinking of signing up under me for a rep.  I am really nervous.  She also booked a party.  So that should be a lot of fun it's in two weeks.  I also have a meeting this week I am going to I really have learned a lot from all of this.  I need to really get with it.  She looked awesome for her facial.  I think that it made her feel beautiful which was my goal she liked everything about it.  So keep busy.

The last two days had so much going on than up at 5 am due to zombie frogs

Yes I know Zombies aren't real my daughter had a dream that zombie frogs were out to get her.  So now she wants me to stay up with her and protect her from them.  This started at 5 ish  in the morning.  Why does this stuff happen when I am exhausted and need to get some sleep.  Tomorrow they are releasing my Papaw's ashes.  It feels like it's not closure...... I still miss him I think about him all the time.  This young girl from RF a small town a little ways from here she was either ten or eleven.  She hung herself in her closet due to bullying.  People on FB are really taking a stand against it.  As am I I believe someone should have stopped it.  And further more how come she was alone when it happened where were her parents in the first place.  That's just me.  I don't believe a lot of kids keep the bullying inside I believe that they tell someone.  Either a friend or a sister etc. Children need to take these threats seriously.  Get this girl some help and counseling before another kid falls victim to the same fate.  I would not allow my kids to bully .  Then again I am very much involved in my kids life.  I go to the extra activities.  I got a call yesterday that starting next week my son will be bringing home a daily report card.  They have been running these tests the last few weeks and I just don't have all the answers yet.  It really frustrates me.  My husband still feels swollen and in so much pain from the extraction.  I believe one was impacted.  Soon the other heathens will be up though. We have big plans tonite to pick up the fundraiser stuff.  Than tomorrow it's a parade and we are going to the festival of trees.  So hope things calm down on our neck of the wood.

LONG DAY!!!!!!!!!!! Two Surgeries and Counting

Yes you read that right.  My son had oral teeth pulled surgery. Then this morning my husband had it done but he had 3 wisdom teeth removed. My son had two teeth removed.  I can't believe it's been so busy.  I also had my meeting last night.  To be really honest I needed it.  I needed to get out and do something for me.  I have been worried stressed out.  Wondering about my business how to grow and make it into a profitable enterprise.  My kids have different things going on.  My husband his teeth that were done today were causing him quite a bit of pain.  I feel bad he is really swollen and the ice  packs only somewhat help.  While I was at the hospital I met another mom whose son was born with a dual cleft lip.  To be honest she was me when my daughter was born.  Her boyfriend was with her.  I told her our story and I told her it will all be alright and not to worry the dr.  is one of the best.  I know that eased her  mind.  It was like a weight was lifted off of her and you know what it felt good to make someones day.  I am putting some eyeshadows on sale to meet my goal.  I know I can do it.  I need to plan some more facials and book some more parties. The kids are playing before supper I won't get everything done but you know what Family comes first.

This year the flu started early

Just about everyone in my extended family has become ill with  major flu.  My husband and cousins and myself all became really ill.  I think this is the first time I have gotten ill this bad in a long time. I really hate becoming sick they told me mine wasn't the flu it was just a cold.  But let me tell you it felt more like the flu than a cold.  My husband still hasn't smoked.  I am proud of him.  My son has finally gotten sick.  He has had a cough and a couple of hours ago he had a fever. I gave him some Motrin and retook it and it's gone down.  I plan on taking him in tomorrow.  If I can't get it to go down or he gets worse it's off to the hospital we go.  I had a wonderful dinner tonite.  We even had fried potatoes.  I really like those quite a bit.  I am debating what to get my friend for Christmas. She has really helped me out with work.  I have no idea what to get her.  Hmmm... any ideas.  In between that the older episodes of the smurfs are on boomerang.  The old ones from when I was a kid.  I am really looking into getting another laptop.  I really like the ability to carry it around and use it when I go places.  I really think it would help me for work.  I just found out that MK has an app for my phone.  I think that's fabulous.  I also when my phone actually kicks the bucket or I get another phone I want an Iphone.  Everyone has an Iphone.  I have an Ipod.  I don't get how to work everything with it but my kids are picking up on it quick.  If I win bonuses through work they are def going to be getting one a piece.  The younger kids don't have them though.  I don't know that they would be responsiable.  Not sure.  Hope it all works out though the way that I want it to.  Wish everyone a blessed night.

Explanation For my Absence

My beloved Papaw passed away.  He lived really far away from us.  But his passing was unexpected to say the least.  Between that and the medication switch and also the newly diagnosis I just don't  know what to do.  My friend actually called me and was wondering how I was doing.  I feel like I really need to get it out but nobody really understands.  I think that by not having a service for him is not good.  I am really disappointed.  I know that he is going to be buried alongside my grandma who passed away 5 years ago.  I really miss them both. Last year my Aunt passed away when it was a few days from Christmas.  It was really hard on everyone.  She was like an adopted Mom to me.  I really miss her I miss her advice I miss eating supper with her I miss crafting with her.  I miss it all.  I really feel sorry for myself.  I feel like I was left all alone.  I keep trying to think positive I keep praying but I just don't understand why the people who have really shaped my life are gone.  It really sucks.  I am hoping to get some baking done today I have a cookout that I am invited to.  I really want to go to that too.  So I was thinking from all that has happened this week that I shouldn't go but you know what I need to get out and to quit wallering around in self pitty. Hope that you don't mind me being gone from blogging it's just been so swamped.

So Good News I did IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

I actually did it I had my first MK party.  I was really nervous and wasn't sure if I was going to do evervthing right.  I really think that I should have done some things differently and now I know.  I really wish I would have had some more samples on hand but I didn't.  I think I am starting to have either really bad allergies or am starting to become really sick.  I have a new follower woo hoo.  So that made me smile this morning.  I need to figure out what I am going to have for breakfast nothing sounds good.  It's one of them kinda mornings.  You know when  you don't really feel well nothing sounds good .  I think that's why I feel like crap.  I really could lay back down but I cant I hate being sick..  Gosh I sound so cry baby ish.  The runny nose is really bugging me.  I babysat my niece and nephew yesterday.  My BIL had to have emergency surgery yesterday.  He's pretty sore and stuff.  I had a lot of fun with them.  My kids were fighting over who got to hold the baby.  They really like babies.  But  otherwise it was pretty fun.  Hope that he get's out of the hospital today though. I could imagine how awful that is with the food and the atmosphere.  Well off to try to eat something..........Take care have a blessed day.

Here's my messiest moment post

Spending time with friends and family can lead to fun and memorable moments, but also some very messy ones. Tell us about the messiest moments that you’ll always remember!  My messiest moment was when my son was about 9 months old.  He was sleeping peacefully in his crib.  I woke up early checked in on him and then I went and took a nice shower.  I didn't get many of those because at the time I was a single mom.  I hurried up but I wasn't fast enough when I emerged my son had poop everywhere his hair face his crib his sheets the wall.  I even seen he had a poop mustache I believe he even had tried to eat it.  I threw out his pjs threw out all his clothes .  The sheet was nasty pitched that to.  For over an hour I scrubbed him and  the crib rails and the wall.  Which by the way was textured.  So it took me a long time I bleached and bleached and rinsed.  I swear the smell seemed to linger.  The tub had to be bleached too.  It was gross.  I got lucky that my other kids never did this but it's something I will never forget................ Please share your messy moments with me too.  
I received information about Clorox’s Bleach It Away campaign and am sharing my messy moment for the chance to win prizes from The SITS Girls.

How's Everyone Doing................

Hope it's going to be a better day today. I hope that I can get all my stuff done today.  I am still doing laundry.  I don't mind it but I don't think the kids need to wear three outfits a piece everyday.  My rule is if you wear it for 5 minutes it's not dirty .  Does anyone else do this it's kinda annoying.  I know it's a kid thing I did it all the time.  I just figured that they wouldn't want to be so wasteful.  I have so much to do today a meeting in like an hour I need to go to.  Hope that goes over pretty well.  My son is getting some more help at school.  I went to WCW meeting last night.  It felt really good to hang around people that like to do stuff and have fun it was a blast.  There's an outing later on this month that I may go to.  It's kind far away though so I will have to see.  We ate delishious ribs the other day it was pretty awesome. My husband finished them up in the oven.  They were amazing.  We really live to cook.  I am trying to figure out how to get people to comment on my postings.  I keep wondering if people actually read them or hit delete.  Just a thought

Shopping today and some great deals

Well we survived.......I got the kids their winter coats and I bought some more long sleeves for my son and all that jazz plus I bought my daughter and myself pairs of shoes.  They were by one get one half off.  Including clearance.  They had a ton of jeans on clearance.  The jeans were marked down to 6.49 but they were origionaly 30 bucks.  I used my 15 percent off credit for Kid Vantage and I also used a friend and family coupon to get another 20 percent knocked off.  Most of the clothes I bought were either on sale or clearance.  Most of the stuff was over 75 percent off when it was said and done.  They also have a bunch of jeans on sale for woman and teens.  For only 3 bucks.  I stocked up on some of these for the teenager.  Tomorrow I have a meeting to go to in the morning.  I went through some samples I got in the mail and gave them to my MIL from the beauty bag.  I know she likes that kind of stuff.  My kids tend to fight over who gets what.  We also had a really nice dinner at one of our favorite places to eat.  We try to go out to eat once a month as a treat.  My son stayed out of trouble today.  I hope this is the sign that the medicine is helping him.  His attitude is still rough at times.  But this has never been easy having mental illness issues.  They also extended some deals for new consultants.  Hope that it comes to be successful for me and others too.  Take care I am off to sleep soon.  I am soo very tired.

Trying some new tactics

I  have an idea hope it works.  I think that there's too much energy and not enough outlets.  So I am letting him run and play to get some of that out.  My hubs thinks that there's no lesson learned here.  I on the other hand am willing to try stuff that I think will work.  I am going to make some lunch here pretty quick I wanted to try to sleep in but it just didn't happen today.  I think that this will work if it doesn't the only think it cost me was time.  My daughters eczema has really flared up.  I know that if we keep plugging away it will end up better.   I have faith I really do.  I looked up some tips and tricks in dealing with it.  Tonite's the big Halloween party.  I was excited to go but it's been pretty windy and chilly outside today so I am not sure about the weather.  I was going to buy myself a costume this year.  But it's been a tight month and all.  I put a call in to the Dr.'s office so I can have them call me Monday morning.  I know that all will get better it just takes time to get it all together.  The dogs are even antsy today.  I am doing laundry and the kids got their baths done.  I need to run into town to get some batteries though.  My camera sucks through them too fast.  That's on my christmas wish list.  I seriously need a new one.  Wish me luck I am afraid it's gonna be a long day.

So long day

My husband won some tickets.  He is so lucky.  Hope we can travel and get our stuff together for the fair.  He also won tickets to a rodeo.  I am really proud of him.  Then we got invited to a Halloween party.  So it's gonna be busy weekend.  I am sure of it.  I just found out that it's going to get pretty cold again tonite.  Hope that it doesn't drop too much.  Looking forward to our little cookout and my tacos tonite.

Halloween Fun

The kids brought home some info on a trick or trunk yesterday.  They were excited so I thought why not.  We thought it would be nice to get out and do some family stuff.  It rained.  It was dark cold.  Reminded me of Trick or Treating in the Midwest.  Cold and rainy.  The kids went through the maze than we ate some chili and some hot dogs.  The chili really warmed us up.  Than we went home and my daughter made some brownies I was craving them.  The evening started up kinda bad though because my daughter broke out.  We were late heading out there because we were at the Dr.'s office.  The diagnosis Tapioca Excema.  It started out like dry skin and it turned out to be blisters.  The teacher wouldn't let her go to the nurse.  I was livid.  When she came home and told me that.  I was like what kind of person doesn't let a kid see the nurse.  It looked like blisters which the dr. and her popped them together.  I was a nervous wreck.  But they then bandaged them up.  I worry because of her weakened immune system that she seems to catch the smallest of bugs.  So the Dr. said we need to be especially open to using hand sanatizer and Dial soap.  She can't use hand sanatizer with alchohal because it makes her skin too dry.  So we are going to be seeing the Derm again.  I am thinking of having her allergy tested.  We will talk about it at her next appointment.  I will be making several phone calls to the school super.  I will speak to the teacher and the principal tomorrow.  I am disappointed and upset. Tomorrow is also the IEP meeting.  I am hoping to find out some more information about what they are planning to do for my son.  If I didn't advocate for my kids nobody else would.  He's on day two of the new ADHD medicine.  I knew tonite when it ran out.  And he needed his next dose. He became argumentative and I was like time to go.  I have really learned to be aware of the hints that he is over stimulated or frustrated.  I wonder if this is Asberger Syndrome and mabye some dyslexia.  They say that they don't realize cause and effect.  They want to follow the rules but can't I wonder if this is the case.  Wish me luck still doing some research on this myself.

The resources availiable for ADHD/ODD

Well yesterday we went to see the child therapist.  I want to say it went over well.  I filled out GOBS of paperwork.  Explained the back story with his dad.  And I asked for some feedback from him.  He was like I don't know what to tell you we'll talk about that later.  I asked him numerous times.  I am not impressed. I wanted his suggestions as to what I shall do about his behavior and the way he treats his siblings and I.  He's like we'll mke an appointment to discuss that later.... I was like really seriously.  I want your opinion and you give me nothing.  My first reaction was anger.  Why go through all that I could have filled out that paper earlier.  I want solutions now.  I don't know what to do.  The last few weeks I have been reading books and I have gathered some information about this dual diagnosis I feel like there's some information out there.  But every child is different to. So I meet with him again next week just him and I hope that I can get some feedback........ otherwise I will be finding a different person for him to see.  I think he put me off because he wants more money from my insurance.  So I didn't get any further from where I started from.  Hope this next apt. goes by better.. Wish me luck please if you have any suggestions please leave it an let me know.  Thanks again.

Gosh been so busy and wanted to catch up with ya'll

Went to Eight Conferences last night.  Boy was I tired!!!!!!  Went to the store and got a few items and made some homemade Chili.  I just ate some left overs.  So I won't know how good it is today.  I like my chili to sit overnight before I eat it!  My kids are doing really good in school.  My  daughter is above avg for other kids her age and for the district.  She's gonna be a genius likes to read etc.  She always wants to learn.  My son is doing good he's not where he should be though.  They are working with him.  His behavior is good he just has trouble focusing the ADHD  plays a big role in that.  We haven't found the right combo of medicine.  I know it takes time there's so many different ones.  On the other hand he is a really good artist.  The school doesn't have an art program can you believe it.  I was talking to my son's teacher about stuff and she was telling me how bad she really wants a wireless printer.  I am hoping that I can find one on sale and use my gift cards to buy one for the class for Christmas.  I am going to try to work something out.  Or even find a good used one.  I just got one a couple months ago  It was on sale but I don't know maybe I can find a few mom's to help me out on it.  If all the kids could bring 2 bucks I think the sales still going on although I don't think the school would let me do it.  I am going to try not sure if I will be able to do it but still I want to try doing something.

So here I am wondering about things

It was such an active weekend.  I am glad that I got some stuff  done this past week.  Helping getting ready the preachers home was hard work for them.  They have traveled all these miles and bad things have happened yet they aren't discouraged.  Their faith in God is strong.  I don't know if I would be the same.  I know that this is a trial in life.  They have had several blowouts vehicle problems and a bad fuel pump while on the road. Yet their attitude is strong.  They are happy.  If it would have been me I would have cried no doubt about it.  I put in several messages to the nurses to call me back .  Today's the results of my husband's MRI.  I am nervous.  I know his problems have gotten worse.  They don't want to do any operation yet. I kind of understand there's a lot of risks involved in it. Early this morning my uncle's sugar dropped really low.  I hate when that happens.  I wish there was a cure for diabetics .  There won't be because they don't make any money off of cures only sickness.  It's such a sad disease.  It runs thick in my family.  I talked to some of my family this weekend my dad was finally rewarded for his 2 million accident free miles.  I am proud of him .  He wasn't alone in his celebration though there were other drivers.   Our church is making thanksgiving baskets for the less lucky people that need help.  I am glad they do this.  There's several families that need some help this year.  Everyone deserves a Thanksgiving Dinner.  My time is usually spent at my mother in law's house.  She makes really good food.  Usually the kids bring some food to share too.  I have yet to pick up the kids costumes I plan on doing that today.  My son wants to be a Ninja.  My daughter wants to be a Zombie Princess.   I am not sure what to do for her costume.  Maybe cut up a dress fake blood.  Not to sure on that one.  It's def a Monday as I am rambling on but just had to get it out there Thanks for listening talk to you guys soon.

Homemade Saturday Supper

I really like to eat food.  Can't you tell.. Tonight we are going to have BBQ with most likely corn. I am gonna whip up some corn bread too here.  I think that sounds so good.  My son is playing with his baby blanket.  He really likes it and I don't want it to get soiled or ruined.  He is in the phase he doesn't care about getting germs.  Yuck.  But it's a learning curve.  Hope that he grows out of it .  He's growing through a girl phase.  I don't remember my time coming so early in that regards.  How times have changed. My friends having a bonfire.  So my other daughter is going to babysit my niece and nephews.  That should be tons of fun.  The dogs are doing well spoiled rotten though.  Hope it is still sunny tomorrow have a good day everyone.

Morning Fun

Yes it's raining here cold chilly fall rain.  Hoping that it stops soon it's hampering the taking in of crops.  Been doing a lot of praying and getting along good otherwise.  Talked to an old friend today.  Sometimes they bring you back to reality.  What I learned is to not sweat the small stuff.  Quit worrying what everyone else is thinking because with the big and little things life's too short to every worry about all the little crap.  I can't sit here and feel sorry for those people who don't care about others.  I sat here and put some thought into it.  I am thankful for my kids my husband and my life.  I don't know where I would be without them or god for that matter.  Not to get all religious on you but he has blessed me and my kids lives beyond belief. I am glad that there's always someone in my court.  My family is there for me as is my friends.  Not the fake friends that claim that they are there for you.  Sometimes I think that Karma takes to long to come back around.  Theirs a lot of people that do bad things and theirs no punishment even in this life.  Someday they will get what's coming to them .  Just sit back and wait.  I am not really a patient waiter.  I know that all will be wonderful but it's just the time involved in getting their.  You say you want such and such it comes and you continue to want more.  I used to be one of those people just a wanter instead of a need based person.  I am thoughtful and wonderful and I don't need the approval of anyone .  That's what made my life.   I am down to wearing an XL I was a 3 or 4X.  I wanted change and I wanted something more so I changed my eating I am not at my goal but working on it . But I know there's pitfalls isn't there with everything.   But I can hold my head up high and carry on.

So went to Dr, and picked up fundraiser

Went to the Dr. Today... Got that done with don't have to see him for another three months! Onto the thing of the day my daughter's class made their fundraiser goal.  So they get to go on their class field trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's sad now days how the schools money has dried up.  I delivered some of the products today.  I ordered some awesome cookies.  I also went to the store and got some boneless skinless chicken  breasts for 1.69 a pound that's cheap round these parts it's usually like three bucks.  And this is the All Natural Organic kind.  I got some fall cleaning done and some laundry done also.  I like to do that daily.  My cousins goats and chickens are so cute!  They are growing by leaps and bounds.  I am making homemade Chicken Nuggets with tater tots and corn and green beans.  There's another mom that I talk to whose kids also have special needs.  It's nice that I don't feel so all alone.  Someone who understands.  I went to my MIL house today she's doing well..  The best news yet I am down to a size 18 I started out at a size 28 a snug 28.  Now I have given away most of my big girl clothes to a friend from church.  I don't want to ever feel comfortable that I could fall back into my old ways.  If the clothes were here it would be easy.  I don't want to live like that anymore.  I really just want to be comfortable with myself.  My kids are doing well at school I am so proud of them.  They are my babies still.  My family is watching Rio .  I haven't seen it but I have mixed reviews about the show.  I hope it is really good.  Ill let you know.

So missing in action really is hard

I have been super busy as of late.  My husband has another MRI today.  My son went to the Dr. yesterday.  The insurance won't cover his meds.  I am trying to get all the preapproval stuff done but the Dr. is sick for two days.  So at least he hasn't run out of medicine.  It's just that it's such a process.  I talked to an old friend today and I want to be honest  I dreaded it.  I wouldn't call him a friend per say but someone I was dealing with years ago.  It was weird to me.  I felt like happy and sad.  My son had a rough morning again. ....... Don't like those kind of days.  I have been doing some research on ADHD and ODD.   I still feel in the dark about it.  I wonder a lot about medicine and side effects etc.  I was overwhelmed yesterday and I cried.  I felt like I needed to grow up but still it is like nobody understands at all.  It's not their kid.  Than sometimes he can get along well with others sometimes not.  I wonder if this will hurt hum down the road..  I know it's hard for him to focus and to sit still .  It's hard because I feel like his mind is always running.  I hope that when they adjust the medicine it will be easier for him to concentrate.  He can't even eat a meal without getting up and down all the time still..  I advocate for him I am over protective of him.  But sometimes I wonder what happens when I get old and don't who will be there then.  I feel like it's taboo with a lot of people.  They have their perfect kids and don't understand.  So maybe I will meet other moms with kids that have the same thing.  It would sure be nice to bounce off ideas off someone whos been there off for awhile see you guys soon.

Making Dinner and proud of my kids

I had a good day overall I got my errands ran and my son's insurance card!  It didn't take as long as I expected though thank god for that.  Picked up some medicine.  I was without my to do list.  I forgot it in my fog today.  I was concerned.  My husband's friends funeral was today.  He was one of the paul bearers.  There was only three I thought that was kind of sad.  He didn't have many friends. The dogs have been all over me been doing some fall cleaning I haven't been feeling all  that well as of late.  My husband is watching some Old Dean Shows that I rented at the book rental such a wealth of  info all for free. I am disappointed that I can't rent books on my kindle from our lib.  But that's what it is.  I am making baked potatoes and Green Beans and Corn and Fried Pork Chops.  We haven't had them in awhile.  I have started a new hobby. I am now a MK rep.  I wasn't sure if I was going to do it.  I haven't gotten my kit or nothing yet but it's on it's way. I am nervous.  Will I be any good.  I like talking and meeting new people so I may do well.  If anybodies interested  let me know!! I have another friend that sells but she lives too far away. I am kind of hangs on learning. So I need someone that lives closer.  But I am still nervous.  We played bunco last night.  That was fun my friend was sick so she didn't show up neither did my x sil.  But I still got second place.  I was worried there for awhile .  I got to spend some time with my sil who is becoming a nurse she's in school now and doing pretty well.  I am glad she is doing it.  She is really smart. Other than that I am still loosing weight and I donated a Giant bag to a girl from church.  It was kind of sad to see it all go but if it doesn't I won't stick to the plan and I need to do .  It until later.

Such a busy day Today

Been such a busy day this past week.  I wonder when it will let up some.  I went to the pharmacy last night and ordered some medicine.  Hopefully it will all work out.  I really need to pray .  I am so thankful for my aunt for helping me understand things.  She is an angel in ordinary clothes .  Swear to god.  I am glad to have her opinion.  My heat aches today.  My daughter had a awful migraine last night.  This is something new but it runs in the family.  Hopefully she will have a wonderful day as she has practice tonite.  I am really looking forward to it.  She is really talented and sweet.  My asthma has been playing on me pretty bad since last weekend.  The Albuterol and the others help some.  They are a pain to carry in the summer time I am afraid they will get too hot and explode in my purse.  I have such a swamped day again and I need to run some stuff over to the office today.  But kind of waiting on some phone calls wish I was a little more patient on that front.  I woke up this morning wheezing pretty bad I may need to get a nebulizer.  I am not sure need to call and make an appointment it's either gonna be tacos or hamburgers tonight I am leaning towards tacos though as I haven't had those in a while.  Keep pondering weather I need to get some shells or not at the store I think I have the soft shells not sure about the hard shells talk to you guys later.

You know I realize it's Monday

It was so cold last night.  I wasn't thinking it would get so cold.  I am blessed with my aunts you know they are always there for me.  I needed that.  You ask and god shall provide.  At church someones grandson grew out of his clothes so my son got a ton of shirts and a pair of jeans they look really nice. I am thankful for that.  The toilet broke so that had to get fixed yesterday.  My uncle made it back from afganistan.  Thank god for that.  He won't have to leave again until November.  I got to talk to my dad to so that was nice.  I miss my grandma.  Stayed with my Uncle this weekend and took care of him.  I love him a lot.  He is actually my husbands uncle but he has adopted me with open arms.  I miss his wife she passed away almost a year ago.  I keep thinking of her but I won't bring it up because I don't want to hurt his feelings.  You know besides being my uncle he's my hero someone I look up to even though his health is failing.  He is the best father and grandfather you could ask for.  He has NEVER ever yelled or spanked his kids.  Of course they are grown now but you know what that says a lot he doesn't even raise his voice.  Can you imagine I think he's part saint.  My son has a Dr. Appt today.  It's supposed to take a few hours.  Don't you hate those kind.  This is a busy place.  Last night we had left over chili .  It is pretty good.  I got out some hamburger.  I am not sure what I am gonna make.  One of the church elders gave us some home grown green and red tomatoes.  Two giant sacks full.  What a blessing .  I talked to his wife after church.  I started to cry this woman is so wise.  I am glad to know that I can count on her.  It sucks when you feel all alone and nobody cares.  The tooth fairy came last night both kids lost teeth .  They were thrilled when I was a kid it was fifty sense.  I figure due to inflation it's now a dollar. Laughing.  Well I will keep you guys posted. Hugs.

So this is becoming a better day

I am thinking I need to make six quillows maybe more but with the time limit of Christmas I am kinda stuck.  I am thinking I won't have the time to embroider the boarders on some but.  I need to get on the ball I am going to start later on as soon as I buy some fabric.  I still have the Material to make a quilt for my bed.  I need to get on the ball it's been over a year now.  I wonder does fabric expire.  I mean not go bad but does it thin out over time.  Pretty goofy question.  I want to make my step daughter a penguin ornament for Christmas.  I have a pattern but I have never been able to read one and understand it.  There's not too much to it and it is small I am thinking a couple hours.  I want to put it in her stocking .   Yes she knows Santa Claus is not real but I have her play along for her other siblings.  She is having trouble she bought some itunes and they aren't showing up on her list.  I have no idea how to work the little sucker and no apple store around me.   So I am not sure what to do.  I have sort of figured it out on mine.  Dang that little bugger is complicated.  Mines an Ipod Touch.  I am glad I didn't get an apple phone than I would be lost.  My Sister has one and says there's good and bad.  But I thought paying 200 bucks for a phone was crazy.  I like the idea of the apps though.  I have some on my Android phone.  I like them a lot.  It saves me time and money and I always like to do that. I read another blogger who is boycotting Extreme Couponing Yes I save money but piles of stuff even if it was  free that we didn't use seems like a waste to me.  If I found the good diaper deals I would donate them to the women's shelter as in the past like 15 years ago I was a victim of Domestic Violence and I lived in a shelter as I didn't have any close family.  It was awful.  I came with nothing.  I have a close friend I met while I was there and we still talk to this day.  I think everyone should donate weather it is time or stuff to those shelters.  They are one of the most under served populations out there.  I am thinking of ways to help.  I was thinking of doing birthday boxes.  I am looking at getting shoe boxes and fill them with candles frosting icing balloons etc.  So when a child celebrates a birthday they can have a cake etc.  So if anyone has any suggestions or thoughts I would love to hear it.  I thought about decorating the shoe boxes too.  Have a blessed one.

Sickness is going around the family

My step daughter is sick and she had them call me to go pick her up.  She said her teacher was sick yesterday so that's where she thinks she caught it.  She didn't feel good last night either.  But she didn't have a fever I thought it would pass.  So off to the Dr.  today.  I won something.  I got the email last night I won the dvd combo pack of Spooky Buddies my kids are gonna be thrilled.  I have won a few things from other bloggers and I have never had a problem with it coming so I am thrilled.  Here's the kicker she blogs from Illinois too.  I really want to meet her.  I have never met anyone except online or through blogs.  It would sure be nice to meet someone and compare notes.  I would like to meet everyone I follow hope that doesn't sound creepy.  Not in a stalker way.  I would like constructive critiques too.  I think it would help me grow as a person and as a  blogger.  There's a couple movies coming out that I want to see.  Hope it all works out.  It's been rainy and crappy here so it makes it feel so cold.  I have been going to bed and getting up early!  I still feel really tired though but I have a two page list of things to do so we will see where that takes me.  I hope to get to half of it today.  I love the sunny days.  I know we will have less due to the fall and winter coming.  I will be back later I am sure.  Wish me luck..  Have a blessed day.

Early to Rise Big Day

Well it's a big day.  My husbands going to have his wisdom teeth pulled.  I had mine pulled several years ago.  I was put to sleep.  I am a big baby.  It hurt real bad because I had mine done all at once.  It was hard to eat for weeks. I should have done one side at a time.  Time for another checkup to for my daughter too.  Good think we have an awesome doctor.  I think I have a stomach bug.  Hate those kind of days.  It's been going around town I think.  Watching reruns of Home Improvement the ones where the kids are grown up.  Yesterday was a more peaceful day thank goodness.  Last night I made a delicious Pork Chops with marinade and shells and cheese and rolls and green beans.  It turned out really good.  Oh yeah and mashed potatoes and gravy.  I think the gravy needed more salt.  I have been cutting back on that though.  I am trying to get back on track .  I have been following some weight loss blogs. I missed bible study yesterday.  I should have gone but I was busy reorganizing my house.  I want to get this done before fall falls upon us.  Last night I applied to do some blogging work with some awesome companies hope that it all comes out.  I really want to get picked.  The kids homework last night was really interesting.  I like how the teacher does a practice side in class so they know ahead of time what's expected. My cousin's getting married next month.  I have no idea what I will wear.  I don't go to a lot of weddings.  I have found some ideas.  I will find something but I may wait until the last minute.  Hate shopping for dresses.  Talk to you guys soon.  Have a blessed day.

Such a wonderful Day

So it was a wonderful day today my son really likes his teacher.  I met her myself she seems really sweet.  I ran into my daughters teacher this morning and she told me how well she was doing.  She's usually on the Honor Roll.  It's really nice for teachers to give feedback and let me know how it's going.  I am really happy that all is well on the school front.  I did some errand running this am.  and I got some wonderful samples in the mail.  The first one is Downy Unstopables I am really excited to try this one out.  I think I will like it quite a bit I wonder how it will work out since I wash in cold water.  It saves energy and if stuff isn't really dirty than why wash with hot water.  I will be trying this later on tonite and I want everyone to know the outcome.  I have been using the Bounce Dryer Bar in the Dryer.  I was amazed that it was still working but I know it's still early yet.  I hope that it keeps on  working.  It sure is a time saver.  I really hate touching the dryer sheets they have the waxy residue on them.  Drives me nuts.  One of my friends from years ago sent me a message.  I can't believe it's been over 10 years already.  I am making Pork Chops marinated in Kraft Italian Dressing and I taste tested it and added some minced onion.  The kids aren't big onion fans but if it blends in I think we will be ok.  I am also making  green beans my son's favorite and some shells and cheese.  I am considering making some garlic toast too.  I will let you know how it comes out.  Hugs for now.

Birthday Party this weekend and concert

Anyone wanting cheap sandals they are thirty seven cents at Dollar General.  I bought several pairs.  That was a really good deal.  I went to a concert and  potluck on Saturday. I like going.  But I felt like the group performing was depressing I found myself wondering why their songs are so sad.  It was bad.  On the fellowship note it was wonderful we met a lot of  new people that hopefully will come by more often. Than today we went to church and celebrated Miley's First Birthday Party.  It was fun.  I was so tired. That I didn't really participate the way I wanted to but the kids had a blast and got some nice coloring books and favors.  Watching Jeff Dunham.  I think he's funny sometimes I think he takes things too far but nothing vulgar or anything.  In the next two weeks the preacher will have everything moved here thank goodness.  He told us today he considers us his family after he was done speaking.  I started clapping brought tears to my eyes.  My grandma is having a good weekend.  I am glad praising god for that.  My son my oldest will be 10 on Friday. Can't believe he has gotten so big so quick. He was being a total ham.  On an embarassing note we were sitting in the first row and my son says really loud are they almost done yet because I am hungry.  I felt all eyes on us.  I wanted to bury my head in the stand.  I was shocked.  But that was okay you can't know what kids will say all the time.  We missed the call from my son's paternal grandpa.  So we called him back..........  It was a short conversation but I am glad he made the effort to call.  That was a good thing.  I hope they continue to be in his life.  But I know they are super busy.  Well it's gonna be a long day so hope that I can get some good sleep tonite.

Another glorious day Freezer Recipe!

I woke up  not feeling well today so it looks like my posting won't be very long.  But this recipe was to die for and cheap and could feed a crowd!

Cheesy Hamburger Mac Bake
2 jars of Spagetti Sauce
2 pounds of lean Hamburger
1 1/2 box of Mac ( I used walmart brand)
2 Pkg . Sharp Cheddar Cheese Shreaded
2 Jars of Spagetti Sauce
Garlic powder Salt and pepper to taste
2 green yellow or red peppers chopped and diced
2 large onions chopped and diced
3 T. butter melted
2 cans fire roasted tomatoes ALDIs brand

 Preheat oven for 350 .
Heat large skillet with butter melt and add peppers seasonings and onion saute till soft.  In large pan heat up salted water enough to cook the mac n.  Leave and let it come to a boil.  Next unwrap your beef could use turkey too.  I used beef though.  Cook meat until no longer pink drain the grease.  Add the onion pepper  mixture stir.  Boil the mac for 5 minutes you still want it hard.  The reason is you will put this into the oven and you don't want to over cook the noodles.  Drain water off mac add the meat and the tomatoes and the sauce in the pan you cooked the mac in.  Spray two dishes I used two cake pans and it worked well and it all fit in the pan.  Spray these dishes with cooking spray as you want to make cleanup easy.  Pour mixture in the pans
and top with shredded cheese you can cook both and eat one now or you can freeze the other one if you want.  This would make good for potluck or freezer cooking.  Place in oven and cook for 15-20 minutes.  Watch your oven if it cooks fast you don't want to burn the cheese.  Let sit for a few minutes than cut and serve it fed. 5 people two giant servings.  For one dish.  For two you could bake for a crowd.  It's delicious on these cold fall nights and cheap too.  Hope you enjoyed.  It was raved about that night and the following night.  If you try it feel free to tell me what you think .  Have a blessed Day.

Good Morning everyone Here's another review for y'all

Does your pet have allergies are you looking to find treats that are all natural with no fillers and made with organic ingredients.  You have come to the right place!  I met this company at a local festival in Hoopeston IL , She lives in Fisher and makes gourmet dog treats and party cakes training treats etc.  I am really amazed.  When I went to her booth it was amazingly put out there I felt like I was walking into a bakery not a dog treat vendor.  They actually looked good enough to eat.  I am sure it wouldn't hurt u if you did though.  But I came home with them and my dogs thought they were delicious.  Let me tell you they are picky!!! I can't tell you how much money I wasted on treats even 100% meat ones and they thumbed their noses up at it.  I am not being compensated for this post I don't get anything free I just wanted to share what I thought was a wonderful company that takes pride in their stuff and was a delight to speak to.  Her company is called Kodi's Gourmet Tasties  you can reach her by phone at 217-621-5236 or you can reach her by email at  .   I hope you guys give her a call and try some wonderful treats.  Support local buy homemade!  If you contact her tell her you seen her on my blog thanks again.

What I wanted to share

Here's another site that I have just been a member of for a little while but I am really pleased.  They payout and are very fun.  They also have a program for blogging mom's and dad's and they have some interesting surveys as of yet hope I made your day hope you enjoy.  I like to share what works for me the link has a referal link that's mine thanks in advance.

Up way to early

Can you believe I got up that early.  I really wanted to call someone anyone to talk to but I couldn't find their number.  I went to bed fairly early. Still things are bothering me.  I have so much to do today it's not funny two dr. appointments and all that too.  I feel like it's going to be overwhelming.  That's okay I guess not much I can do about it though.  I was hoping that it would work out.  I have been praying and thinking about it all.  Why do people do the things they do?  Why do they act like they are king of the world and go around making others feel less than they are.  Feels like a punishment.   You know they say if you give someone enough rope they will hang themselves in the long run.  So this person keeps on making the  SAME mistakes. I have no idea why they are getting away with it where's the Karma.  I am tired of that.  I know the results won't be in for months but I like that instant gratification.  I want to know how why what and wheres.   What is wrong with people.  Seriously.  I hope that with prayers that God will respond and it will all work out wish me luck I need it.

Summers Coming to an end But enjoyed one last Treat

So the kids hubby and I had some delicious Ice Cream from one of our favorite little places.  Mike's Chill.  It was on Sale!! The ice cream sandwiches were 49 cents and the dilly bars were .69.  We ordered some wonderful tasty treats this is one of those places that is locally owned and operated.  We love it there.  I hope that we can go there next year a lot .  We really like going to the other place they own it's a little drive up think the old A & W from way back when.  Their food is tasty and grilled fresh right in front of you.  The prices are good too.  Their soups are made fresh daily.  Their chili is good when it is cold outside.  I was not compensated at all for this post I didn't get free meals or anything.  But I wanted to share what I enjoy and places that treat you  right and have reasonable prices.  I told my aunt about my blog tonite I sent her the link so I can't wait till she see's my little work in progress.  I am kinda nervous and kind of excited too.  I worry what everyone thinks.  I don't do this for everyone else though I do this for me.  The new episode of  Two and a Half Men is on I wonder if it will be the same.  I think Charlie might have spoken without thinking when he talked bad about chuck and the show.  But when you put it out there if you are unhappy you should have left earlier.  If someone doesn't appreciate you than you should leave.  But it's hard walking away from the job that pays you millions of dollars each episode.  So far it's just in the early stages it's too early to tell so I will let you know my opinion later.  So we will see.

Some thoughts Opinions

Has anyone done Financial Peace University or Dave Ramsey did it work or what.  I am trying on figuring out if it's worth the money.  I like to save money but not so sure if this is the right avenue.  I met someone that I am working on some major stuff.  I hope all goes well she's super nice.  Glad someone tells you the good and the bad and doesn't make you feel bad it's nice to have those kinds of people on your team.  I have 17 followers I think that is awesome! Hope you guys enjoy it.  I feel unfocused today.  I have a lot of thoughts rattling around upstairs.  I am thinking of getting a big sheet of poster board and posting some of my goals on it and hanging it on the wall.  Does that sound kind of nutty.  I really like blogging eventually I would like this to be my job!  I like spending time with the kids and the dogs and my husband.  I sometimes feel that if I was working all the time I would miss out on so much.  I have put some thought about going to school the classes that are like 1500 bucks a piece so maybe if they weren't so high I would do it now.  That's like for four years it would be like 70,000 bucks.  Enough to buy a house.  I thought about going to Hair School.  I am not sure I could touch other peoples feet though.  I don't know.  Started some laundry and all that fun stuff got out some hamburger for supper may just have either cheeseburgers or tacos not sure which.  I kinda like cheeseburgers though.   I hope that it turns out good I will probally post later.  Hugs!

Cold Weather Potato Soup Night

Last night I had an idea I wanted potato soup.  So tonight I made some along with help of the husband.  I started out with a stick of butter.  I chopped and diced one package of celery and 2 large onions salted and peppered to taste and added one large bag of potatoes.  My husband tried to rush the process and dumped the butter and veggies in the potato water to rush it along.  I was like OMG it's ruined now he says it would cook faster.  I planned an adding when they were softened some so I waited .  When the potatoes got done he added milk to the water.  I was surprised I always drained off the water but he added prob about half a gal. of whole milk it was good.  But I also cut up part of a french bread and broke it up into pieces and put into mine so much better than crackers.  Next time I hope he just lets me cook.  I talked to my aunt today.  It made me miss my grandma though.  I told her about some big ideas I have floating around.  So I need to find like 8 people that live close to me .  I have some ideas.  I hope it works wish me luck hugs everyone.

Dinner was terrific tonite

It was frozen pizza (Digornos)  But we were together as a family.  We got to talk and visit it was a lot of fun.  I am glad  we did it.  I hope that we have more of these dinners  ..  Tomorrow I am making homemade Potato Soup it's gonna be good (I hope)  Last time I made it I put garlic powder in it thinking it would be good but I heavy handed it and it tasted too garlicy and couldn't fix it.  I even added more milk it was bad.  Not that I am a bad cook or anything  but it was nasty.  The dogs today were all over me.  I was like come on now.  Those chis are trouble makers and worried what the other ones doing.  My cousin is raising chickens and goats and chihuhuas and soon rabbits.  They are brave me I don't have lots of space but maybe someday I will.  I don't know if I could do it without making mistakes.  It's a lot of work you know.  I don't know if there would be anyone I could go for advice.  You know my uncles really smart but I don't want to be a burden on him tomorrow is share day at church someone (a chosen child everyone gets a turn) brings in something and than the preacher does a sermon with it he's had necklaces toys etc.  I don't know what my daughter is going to bring I am thinking of loaning her my kindle. I think it would be awesome.  He ties things in with teaching s and the bible.  Really awesome.

Paid for what you do anyway count me in I love love love this site...........

Well I follow alot of blogs and one that really inspires me is Fat Chick Fed Up (check her out she makes me laugh and cry)  anyways a few weeks ago she posted something that was completely new to me .  Daily Feats it is sort of like you do things everyday like brush your teeth take care of your kids etc.  You get rewarded for this with points.  Yes points which lets you cash out when ever you hit a certain threshold.  I am new to the site.  I try to log in every day.  Yes I forget not perfect etc.. But in two weeks time I had enough points to cash out for itunes gift card.  I am going to have songs on my ipod touch.  Yes. They have all sorts of rewards you can friend people invite your friends share on facebook etc.  I like it does it motivate me yes people can even comment on your feat.  What do people need feedback .  We thrive on it.  It works you get rewarded you congratulate others on their accomplishments and it's FREE!  You can even get people like you (like on fb)  and they can compete with you it doesn't cost a penny and you can have a lot of fun please feel free to friend me on there if you would like I would love to have you on my team!

I have an audience. Paid Opportunities............

I am so excited so far 13 and counting woo hoo.   I may post a lot today I wanted to share my voice.  He he he.  Well also some things that have brought me great joy..........  I take surveys and such and I do it because I get to try new products and it's fun .  I have tried woman's lotion perfume tampons food etc.  So much cool stuff so I thought I would share what I have done in multiple posts of course because who has time to read long ones.  This one is called Survey Spot.  They pay as soon as you hit the ten dollar mark.  No waiting for a check or any of  that craziness.  You can get paid out with paypal.  It's important that you fill out your profiles.  They are looking for men women and kids to do surveys.  It's easy fast and legit.  You won't make a living at it but you can have some extra spending money.  So far from this site alone I have made over 300 bucks this year.  You also can cash out in their webstore for Amazon etc.  But I usually do paypal because it's the easiest to spend cash and all comes in handy for gas etc.  It works been doing it for a few years now always fun.  Hope you sign up and enjoy.  They don't give you anything for telling other people or anything I won't get money if you join but I wanted to share what works for me.

Lots of mommy and me time

I read another blog and she was disheartened by people not commenting on her posts.  I feel your pain sometimes I wonder why don't people post comments I love them personal.  But I am a feedback type of girl you know what I mean.  I think that shows people are reading even if it's not perfect that sort of thing I am all ears.  Last night my step daughter and I had a mommy and me date.  It was awesome we got makeovers.  I never knew how much fun it would be.  I don't wear makeup and when I do it's hard to find stuff that fits and doesn't scream teen or old lady.  *sigh* but I have found something out I don't necessarily have to be a ten .  But it changed the way I feel.  I know that sounds so cliche but it is true.  I hope that other women give it a try I want to feel beautiful.  I am heavy set.  I have lost 40 plus pounds.  But I want more I am not doing all that much in terms of a whole lot of exercising.  I need to but I procrastinate.  I really have gotten alot about reading Fat Girl Fed Up and the Chick Magnets blog she motivates me she struggles.  She has her husband doing it alongside of her and you know what she is honest she doesn't bitch (not sure if I should say that.  But it's true.  She has no idea I look forward to her posts.  I need that push.  Sometimes I feel like I am alone in this world when it comes to loosing weight.  I hope someday I can meet other bloggers some people have so many fans it makes me wonder if I will ever get there as of this moment I only have eleven but you know what that makes me happy really happy and I am a dork until later hugs.

So yesterday was awesome

I got some wonderful Mary Kay products to review.  I plan on using them today.  I think my daughter will help me because I want to look awesome.  We all got our hair cuts two days ago.  They still look fab though.  The woman at the salon said to make sure we get them trimmed every three months.  I was thinking it was once a month that will save us a bundle because it was like 60 bucks for all of us.  I am also trying to figure out some teacher presents for Christmas.  I am thinking homemade.  I am hoping to start my sewing class next week.  I have no idea what to get my aunts for christmas.  Time is ticking away I have thought of buying some homemade rosaries they are so beautiful.  But I am not sure if this is the right gift.  I hope that I can figure it out soon. We are planning a trip to a local orchard.  I hope that it will work out ok.  I am worried about the prices.  It's a upick type place. I am also thinking of going to a blogger conference I am trying to find one close to me but I so don't want to go alone.  I am thinking my cousin will go with me but I am nervous. It's not like me to be that way. So if anyone has been I could sure use the advice. I was thinking of meeting up afterwords for coffee or something too.  Maybe making business cards too not sure yet.  Where I live it's such a small town.  I think it will work out but that won't be so easy .

Looking for Reps for the following companies! Great exposure for you !

I am open to Avon, Mark, Pampered Chef, Scentsy, also Thirty One and tupperware.  Also would be interested in Stella and dot also.  I hope to get in contact with you ladies and  promote you and try some new products.  I am open to others also.  So feel free to pass this info around thanks.

Like a kid again

I feel like such a little kid.  My blogging buddy is sending me some products reviewed so excited.  I have started some christmas shopping.  I have gotten some stocking stuffers and some video games. My allergies have flaired up again thank god for Claritin and Benadryl.  I am thinking of starting something I read about on another blog it's called blessing bags.  It's like a ziploc bag with items in it like soap washclothes etc.  I want to pass these out to woman's shelters and also to homeless .  I would like to make some kid ones too for sick kids.  I am thinking of talking to my church .  I am also looking to start a secret sister type deal and a youth group for kids.  I want to do something more.  I went to bible study today with my cousin.  I learned alot.  I feel like I am never going to read the whole bible it's nice having someone to ask questions too.  The sing is also coming up to.  I have been thinking of adopting a senior with no family this year too.  I have a soft spot in my heart for helping others.  I hope to be able to do this this year.  The dogs are bed hogs. Haven't been sleeping well.  I hope that will change.  I think it's because you can't have two dogs and two people in the same bed. Especially a small bed. I think I need to go to the store to get some more nutella as I am out.  Catch you guys later.

So Car Issues updated

Well called the mechanic he said come on back it turns out a bolt on the car somehow got loose.  It was most likely knocked off while they were changing the struts.  So he fixed it and an hour later it was quiet.  I am so glad he didn't charge us.  I felt like that proves he was out to help us.  I am so relieved as my daughter has a big deal appointment tomorrow.  I couldn't have gone unless he fixed it thank god for small blessings.  I will praise this Mechanic from the roof tops all over town.  I am thankful.  I know I will for sure pass this one on.  I hope that this humidity dies down I was so dang cold earlier now I am so friggin hot.  Hope that it is cooler tomorrow.  Glad that we have ac though.  Thought of giving this a rest for awhile.  Kids are just hanging out.  Dogs are being silly he had all dogs in our bed last nite I don't think I slept all that well.  Maybe I can convince him not to do that again we will see our newest pet chose him to be hers.  So it's weird .

So I am looking for some barters anyone .................

I am looking for handmade soaps lotions.  A portion of beef and pork .  Fresh eggs etc.  I am also looking for Thirty One items .  I crochet and make things cook etc.  I really am looking for this local to me but if not if not to far I would be willing to meet.  Our new poochie Phoebe is fitting in nicely.  My dog sleeps next to her and she loves everyone.  I am relieved.  I got some laundry done.  I got my car fixed it was expensive.  Come to find out yesterday the clunking noise came back.  I was livid.  of course it's on the weekend and he's closed today so hoping I can get ahold of him on Monday.  My son's birthday's coming up later on this month I can't wait to get him his presents.  I have been working on my daily feats I try to do it daily in a week I earned enough points for an itunes git card!! It's all free.  You get points that you can use for doing stuff you do everyday like playing with your kid eating good and skipping soda.  It has helped me a lot.  I accomplish so much more when you have people supporting you.  It's fun and I can get free stuff.  What's better than that.  I am also looking for guest bloggers. When you are small it's like nobody wants to be associated with you.  I don't understand that.  I knew this wasn't gonna be an over night thing but it's still frustrating.  Until another day.

Today the awfulness and the wonderous.............

First of all I want to tell  everyone I am blessed that I am here .   I feel hurt in my hear for those who lost loved ones due to the planes hitting the toward.  I was only 18 than I watched it on tv unfolding.  I couldn't believe it.  I mean it was such a massive accident I didn't know weather I should keep watching or turn it off.  It was a very emotional day for me.  I really think that there's a lot of hateful things going on in the world now.  I hope that it changes.  Everyone should accept others even if they are not rail thin or the smartest person.  I think a lot of these people are upset because they have nothing going on for them.   They don't have the choices we have here due to education and jobs etc.  I think these people are offering them a chance to belong and they need the money and they are alone.  That sort of things.  I went to church this morning I think that it went well I really like the new preacher.  I think he is open and honest.  That's what we needed.  We had a fill in preacher for six months he had upset some of the other members. So he was asked not to return.  It's a small church so I understand.  Anyways I am thinking of implementing a sunday school program for younger kids 2 year olds to 4 th graders.  I don't know if I have the support needed.  I don't know if the church would help out with some of the costs involved.  So I am praying for  a solution.  I hope this works out for the best.  Wish me luck

Long Day For Sure

I didn't sleep well last night the puppies have all passed away.  I am so upset that this would happen.  I feel awful about it.  Cars in the shop getting fixed and it may take all day and I have a boat load of stuff to get done.  Imagine that right.  My daughters in some charity events so we will be busy with that next month.  I am proud of her she has such a giving heart and soul would help anyone.  I tracked my calories yesterday.  I am eating more veggies and such I wish I had a ww buddy here.  It's hard to stay motivated because of the temptations.  This colder weather makes me want to have a bonfire. And roast my hot dogs.  Can you believe my husband hates smores. (I know right) !! I think it's  crazy.  I have been doing a lot of praying and I feel sort of sad.  I talked so someone who I thought would be supportive but ended up not being so much and was full of making me feel bad.  This is someone who I thought would understand I am so disappointed in this.  I put a lot of faith on a limb but that's ok tomorrows another day.  I have an itunes gc coming can't wait to use it hope it's not complicated.  I have been having trouble figuring it out.  I hate reading the instructions for things I think they should be user friendly.  Which they are not.  I have so much to do today but I just wanted to put it out there. It may be easier to deal with later until next time have fun!! Stay warm.

So cookbook update

I am making a cookbook and I hope to have it close to being done soon. I am debating weather I want to print it myself or use a local printer in town.  I want to make several copies.  I want to have a forward in there for my dad and his side of the family.  I want to include some from my grandma in there too.   I really miss her so much.  I know it will be nice to have this chapter in my life closed.  If I ever get around to writing a book I want to donate a portion of the money to a cleft lip group.  I want it to help all people.  There's some good ones out there. I hope that this works out the way that I envision it.  I think it will I need to figure out if I am going to include some picture in there too.  I think that would be  nice touch.  I want it to be passed down from generation to generation.  Old fashioned I guess.  I hate having the burps.  I think I will look out for a ww buddy that can hold me accountable.  I think it would help me get back in the grove.  I need to go shopping and get some pants for fall and winter mine are falling off I keep having to yank them up which is so not flattering.  I am not where I want to be but than again I don't want to look like a whale by wearing bigger clothes hope I can find some good deals this week.

Finally a chance to post here NEWS FLASH

My daughters dog had pups they are so cute look like their daddy.  There's two girls and a boys he likes to watch them but she doesn't like it.  They are doing fantastic they were born on my husbands birthday he said it's the best present he could have gotten.  I had to bottle feed them the first few days but they were doing well but I knew they would do better with mama milk .  She kinda rejected them at first so it was a long battle but she's doing much better now.  I kinda got away with tracking my food weighed at the doctor lost 3 more pounds but I want more.  On the upside again I get to play Bunco again so that's gonna be awesome I miss my girl time plus I get to see some family I don't see too often.  Win Win situation. My hubs bought a new TV it's fabulous so now we have two nice tvs.  I am really liking the picture .  I am the owner of an Ipod Touch.  I feel frustrated that I can't figure it out all the way like the location feature (HELP)  Seriously.  I downloaded some songs that were free I need to download some of the ones that cost money.  They aren't too expensive.  But I think that it could add up quickly. I got a free hair dye coupon in the mail it's for a free box.  I had a wonderful birthday dinner for the hubs 3 parties it's nice to be loved right.  I bought some diet orange soda it's not so bad.  The regular soda is soo sweet.  I got used to drinking diet.  So I am liking some of the stuff.  Wish they would make diet candy that tasted good.  I haven't found one I like yet. Made appointment and got to see the orthodontist.  This upcoming week.  I hope that it goes well.  I know it will the dr.  reccomended her.

I am always on the lookout for cell phone cases  that aren't expensive while looking for our phone cases I have been blown away by the cost.  I want to change my case like I change my clothes.  So I contacted Cell Pig they have prices I can afford and styles I love.  They have boy cases and girl cases stuff for kids and adults.  They sent me the case of my choice from their vast collections.  I picked the army case because it's good for men or woman and it was a personal favorite.  The case was shipped in bubble wrap and was package well .   It was easy to place this on the phone and it didn't scratch either this is a thick plastic case that will last a  long time and I will be ordering more cases after I had this wonderful experience with them.   They also do specials and the shipping is free it is cheaper  on you wallet not having to pay shipping.  Their shipping was fast it was here in two days.  They respond very fast on facebook too..   I want to let everyone know what a wonderful company this is to deal with and there's no hassles. 

Full Disclosure:  Cell Pig provided me with this  coupon code to pick out a case of my choice.  All  Opinions contained in this review are my own personal opinions and I got a phone case to try out and keep I didn't get any other form of compensation for my experience and my opinion.  My opinions are 100% mine and only mine .

So happy about the things coming together

So I read an interesting book written by another mom blogger I think it was real written and it was almost like she was speaking to me.  I am thinking about wordpress and wondering if it's something I should do.  I feel like starting out blogger was more friendly per say.  I think it would cost some money in the long run to switch over.  At the moment I wonder what it will end up being like.  Tomorrow is my mom and sisters birthday on the same day.  We  are closer than we were. I just found my father a few years ago so I am still learning things.  I want to have that relationship like everyone else.  We don't have these big celebrations it's kind of a sore subject.  I want to do some things that mean a lot to me.  I want my kids to have family traditions carried on but I don't know if it will ever become something more.  I have met him a few times.  I miss him he doesn't live that close.  I don't regret finding him or meeting him.  I wanted that all my life.  I regret that I quit looking and restarted several times.  I feel like I gave up to soon.  I hope in the future I can learn more and put these traditions in place in my own kids lives.  I found some awesome recipes and I am writing my cookbook I hope that I can get it done by this winter.  It is really time consuming.  I want to include my Grandma's Recipes.  It will mean a lot.  I hope to self publish when I get it done.  Hubby is watching scary movies he's a movie fanatic me not so much.  I researched some confrences I would like to go sometime this upcoming year maybe sooner if I can work out all the details.  I have met so many friends here while I am on my journey I really like blogging and hopefully you enjoy reading it too.

Wonderful Business You should know about...........

I came upon a small business that's not local to me but it was awesome .  It's called Beautiful Wood Rings this is a small company that deserves to be talked about.  His work is custom he makes rings out of wood instead of metal.  For someone who has allergies to metal gold etc this is what you need.  Each ring is handmade and you can tell he picks out the most beautiful stones.  He even let's you customize the wood and the gems.  I was on his site for awhile the other day dreaming about what I would like to order.  I emailed him and he quickly responded to my request this makes me know that he cares about his customer and that I am not just not another order.  I am debating on what I would like to order first I think I am going to order some rings for my Christmas list.  If you want to do business with someone I say give him the chance to wow you.  If you end up ordering feel free sharing where you heard about him at .  Thanks again until next time .
