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.
