We made it through

Well my children and I both made it through the first week of school and every one’s still happy.  I can’t help but wonder just how long that’s going to last but hopefully it will last at least another week or two.  Hey, it could happen!!

My daughter has always loved school but the boys, well that’s a totally different story.  See they like to be out playing or doing what they want to when they want and school sort of puts a cramp in their style.  That’s okay because they complain that I cramp their style too.  I must be doing something right then.

Oh my goodness!!!

I could not believe what I was seeing in this video.  Someone really needs to tell this girl that what she’s doing, just can’t be done.  You have to see this to believe it.  If this isn’t a God given talent then I have never seen one before.  Also a lot of hard work and practice.  It’s just amazing!!!!

It’s almost back to school time!!!

Our children go back to school on the 25th and I can’t wait.  I’m a whole lot more excited about it than they are.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s been a wonderful summer but it’s also been a LONG summer with all of the kids home.  We have to go out today and make sure they have all of the school supplies that are required for their grades and even pick up a few things for other kids in need of school supplies.

My children were on that list a couple of years so now it’s time to return the favor by passing it along to others in need.  That’s what community is for, to help when you need a helping hand and then return the favor when you can.

This could have been me

I just found out that a good friend of mine didn’t have any type of identity theft protection and all of a sudden she owes thousands of dollars on her credit card.  She has no idea how they got her information but they did and since she didn’t have protection, I’m not sure what she’ll be able to do about it.  Oh sure they’ll take some off but I’m not sure about all of it.  What a shame!!!

Can’t have too much

Since losing Papa Charlie, I have realized that you just can’t have too much life insurance. I have been checking out cheap life insurance rates and was totally amazed at just how affordable more life insurance was.  As a mother, I need to be sure my children will have what they need if, heaven forbid, something should happen to me.  It’s something to think about for sure.

I wish I knew more about this

My vacuum cleaner died and someone told me that I needed a 115334 vacuum motor. It’s a central vacuum system I have for the whole house and I sure hope they know what they’re talking about. I got one at a pretty good price so I really hope that fixes the problem. It would be nice because I hate not having my vacuum cleaner working, especially with three kids running around.

School shopping!!!

Well it’s time for back to school shopping and I am so looking forward to it.  The kids aren’t as happy as I am about it but they’ll get over it.  Once they get back to school and see all of their friends that they haven’t seen all summer, they’ll be happy.

It’s just the thought of going to bed before midnight and getting up early that they are complaining about right now.  I guarantee you that they will be up on the first day before I am, all excited and ready to go.

I just can’t seem to get it out of my mind

That Angel in my last post, well I just can’t seem to get him out of my mind.  If I could have an Angel like that, I would walk around with the biggest smile on my face you have ever seen.  Oh well, he’ll just have to stay in my dreams because there sure isn’t anyone that looks anything like that around here.  There’s always hope though!!!

Maybe one more get away before school

We had a blast in Florida but now I’m thinking about taking the kids to Gatlinburg.  There are lots of Gatlinburg vacations we could take before school starts back and the prices are really good. Not to mention, I love the mountains in the summer because it’s not so darn hot there.  I guess I’m weird but I prefer the mountains in the summer heat.

Are you sick of ‘Angel emails’?

This is by far the best ‘Angel email’ I have ever received in my life.  Gotta love it!!

Sick of angel emails?

OK BE HONEST…how many of you REALLY ENJOY getting little angel love notes from every person in your address book? You know the ones with “I love you so… here’s an angel” … and some mushy poem crap….And like the cute wasn’t bad enough, they then THREATEN you with bad luck if you don’t send it on to others!!

So here’s my version:

Take the fairy dust:

image001(2)Add it to one of those angels


And POOF!!!!….


Now that’s my kind of Angel and he’s good luck because he probably made you smile.

One for the girls :

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my shape to keep.

Please no wrinkles, Please no bags

Please lift my butt before it sags.

Please no age spots, Please no gray

As for my belly, Please take it away.

Keep me healthy, Keep me young,

And thank you Lord, For all you’ve done.
